Alator opened the Heavy wooden doors of oak and stepped into his office. He walked trough the room of white stone and took a seat at his large and beautifully made desk. He looked to his left and looked out trough a window, his mind Heavy with thoughts. He saw the castle of Daggerfall in a distance. He had always had a special love for Daggerfall, he had Always felt at home here. Even if it were a grand city and a sprawling trading hub. He looked proudly at the banner of the Council of Arcanea behind him Before he started Writing an execution order of a vampire that had been harassing a village and claimed several lives.

Alator looked up as someone knocked on the door, Alator said "Come in." then the door opened and two of the Councils Guardians and one Warden stepped in. Two of them were dragging someone between them. Alator asked "And who is this?", the Warden answered "He is from the Black Worm Cult, we caught him in a tomb, he were about to resurrect around thirty corpses. Would you like to have a chat with him later?" Alator nodded and said "Take him to a cell...".

He sighed when they had left and while he contuined to write the execution order he said for himself "Why have they become so Active now...? And they are very bold to work so Close to us, I need to uncover this later.".

He sealed the execution order with the sigil of the Council and asked his apprentice Giraud to give it to Noric, one of their best assasins. Then he walked to the hall were the wizards were training on spells, Reading or doing experiments. He smiled as he saw a master-wizard teaching one of the younger wizards a complicated spell. The younger wizard seemed to only become more confused the more the Master-wizard tried to explain it for him.

He walked to a bookshelf and pulled out a book about dwemer constructions and took a seat at a reading table and started looking on how the dwarven centurions were built. He had Always been facinated with them. When he closed the book it had become early evening. Alator ate an apple in the main hall Before he headed towards the cell were the necromancer were held. The necromancer were chained to the cold stone-wall and looked at Alator with a cold fury when he stepped in into the cell after a Guardian had unlocked the door.

Alator said "So, what were your intentions behind your attempt to raise somany undead here in Daggerfall? And dont try to lie, if you do I will know and you will get a pretty unpleasant time. Remember this, I can hurt you to the brink of Death, then heal you and start over. I can do that again, again and again until you break. Or perhaps Requies could give me assistance....".

Alator almost smiled as fear showed up in the little imperial necromancers Eyes, and his face got as pale as the snow in Skyrim. He said "It wasnt my intentions, I just followed orders..." then he quickly turned quiet and his face turned red with fury instead over that he had lost his control in fear, he were obviously not a brave man. Alator asked "And who did you get orders from?" the little Imperial answered "From... from Caius Leotelli.". Alator knew that he were lying, Caius had been dead for a while now after the Council had payed the necromancer a visit and left him a head shorter after that he and his companions had slaughtered dozens of innocent people and collected their souls for the Worm cults leaders.

Alator just said "I told you not to lie to me." then he summoned fire in his hands. The necromancer looked to be around seventeen, scarcely more than a boy. He started pleading "No please.... please dont... I got my orders from the Arcane University. They want new minions and souls, and many of them. They are gathering them in Hammerfell and are planning to use them to raid villages and create a diversion for something. I dont know what..." then he started to sob.

Alator walked out from the cell and started walking towards the stairs that led up to were his office and room were. The corridor were empty and quiet, the sound of his staff hitting the floor echoed... suddenly he stopped. Alator Heard a very low sound behid him and looked behind him. Towards him came Three vampires, all dressed in black and armed with daggers. They ran very fast and silent. Alator managed to get his staff up just in time to block the closest vampires attack. He answered by sending a fireball right into the vampires chest. The vampire were flunged back and didnt move anymore, but the other two did, and fast.

Alator hit one vampire in the face with his staff, but the second one slashed out with the dagger and gave him a wound on his arm. Alator jumped back and sent a thunderbolt towards them. They rolled away from it and started running towards him again. Alator sent a spear of ice towards one of them wich hit the vampire in the chest and left him moaning on the ground. Then he sent a thunderbolt at the last vampire. But the spell had no effect. Alator saw an amulet around the vampires neck. He realised that the amulet must be enchanted to shield the vampire from magic. The Vampire crashed into him and Alator lost the grip of his staff. Alator rolled away and got up, the vampire tried to stab him in the chest with his dagger. Alator grabbed the vampires arm and slammed his head into the stone-wall, then he punched the vampire in the face and blocked Another of the vampires attacks. Then everything went very fast, the vampire hissed and Alator felt something slam into his head very hard and he fell down into the cold floor. He raised a hand and felt on his head. To his suprise the hand was red when he removed it from his head.

The vampire said "Now you die wizard!" and raised the dagger to drive it into Alators heart. Then suddenly Alator heard the sound of an Arrow and the vampire dropped the dagger. The vampire felt on the Arrow that pointed out trough his chest. He opened his mouth but from it, it only came blood. The vampire fell down on his knees then into the floor, his back pierced by an arrow.

Alator started to get up as members of the Council ran towards him. Alator started healing his wounds as an assasin of the Council said "I found the guards watching the gate unconscious, thats when we realised that something was wrong. The guards will be fine, except that they will have a terrible headache tomorrow. What happened here?".

Alator said "I got attacked by these vampires... vampries in the Councils own hall? These are dark times indeed. Search after if there are more of them here. gather the rest in the main hall. I dont want that we find anyone with their throats opened just because that they were alone."

He looked as the men started to carry out his orders. He felt his head throbbing and placed his hand on the wound and started closing it with restoration magic as he walked towards the main hall togheter with several members of the Council. Alator muttered for himself "I should have gotten used to this after all these years..."..
