The gears were definitely turning in the Darkling's mind at this point, considering the roster of people that Artie didn't want getting this information yet... "Lips are sealed."

"I'm serious. Queen's orders. We don't want the backlash that would come up if they heard we were looking into her," Artie said, emphasizing the point by sealing the promise. As he did though, he explained, soft whispers and careful gazes in Victoria's direction. "She's one of the ones who was taken. Back in the day, when we were still in High School, she was one of Destiny's best friends. She was a rook made of glass?"

There is a distinctive memory. It's sharp, and it's painful, and its similar but its not exact - a memory of a black piece that was clear and see through, beautiful and nearly invisible - raw and destructive. You remember the shattered pieces of her. Of the Black King taking those fractures glass remains and letting them know that she could not be rebuilt. It was one of the things that made the chess pieces remember: Death was a very real possibility, even on a board where the King puts them back together again.

The sealing of the promise only served to confirm the seriousness of the matter, and Damien made no attempt to counter the seal. He paused as the memory rose, giving a slow nod after a moment before whispering his response. "Yeah...I remember her now. Was too far gone for a rebuild."

"Right. Thing is, Destiny was the one who killed her. But Lily wanted me looking her up to see if it's possible that she might be connected to Diamond, because they kind of look alike. Which is... probably why she looks familiar to you. She looks like Diamond, if Diamond was not made of Diamond." Artie shrugged and said, "If there is a connection, then we have something to help the three of them. If their isn't, the idea only hurts them more so... we're keeping it till we're sure there is something solid there. Hence my investigation."

"Right..." Damien nodded quietly, letting what had been shared percolate in the back of his mind for the time being. "If you want help looking into anything for it, let me know."

"Better to ask Lily about it," Artie said, "I'm just gathering information and an opinion for her on whether or not the possibility of a connection is actually there or not."

"Alright...will talk with her when we get back, then." Damien glanced towards Victoria once again before turning back to Artie. "Shall we?"

Artie looked at Victoria tentatively, before saying, "Alright. Let's do this."

He rose, moving to follow Damien's lead on this.

Damien nodded and headed towards where Victoria was sitting, giving her a small nod as they approached. "Hey. Got a minute?"

The air is a bit chilly as Victoria's gaze shifts over to Damien, and it's not the weather that creates it. As she watches him, her eyes flicker to the computer - a bit awkward typing when you were gone for so long and were having to remember where the keys were when looking things up.

Not everyone could be Artie, and just jump right back into the thick of things without issue. Using a computer or any kind of technological device was going to take practice getting used to it again.

Occupied though she was, she turned her face to the keyboard more than the keyboard screen, "What do you need?"
