Darkness is my Ally.
"Doctor Kensington, I am complete agreement with you on all the points you raised. I have experienced this madness firsthand and still I question how things could have reached this point. Nevertheless, it is my sincere belief the threat before us is both immediate and existential, and to do nothing is suicide."The other four Philosophers listen closely to your every word, but their expressions seem somewhat incredulous. "If all of this is true," posits Lydia Kensington, "which is quite hard to believe, I might add, what on earth do you expect any of us to be able to do about it?"
Penelope Fange nods in agreement, one hand wound around the shifting vine of a mandragora. "Beasts? Vampire hunters? The cessation of the Strix threat? It's all quite strange and highly improbable-"
Savannah Lutece speaks up, interrupting the Kindred biologist, "no it isn't. Not a bit. We've all seen the various products of the Great Work. What's to say this isn't true too? LaChance is many things, but he is not a liar, or prone to flights of fancy. I say we assist him, with all the resources at our disposal."
"However, anecdote is not evidence and emotion is not fact. We are scientists - I propose we consider the matter scientifically."
"I have presented a summary of the information I have gathered. Here too is the raw data." LaChance puts his notebooks, picture and other evidence on the table. "Peruse it yourself. Question me. Assume nothing. There may well be gaps in my data, assumptions I have made incorrectly. This data was not gathered under ideal laboratory conditions, and it's entirely possible that my emotions are coloring my conclusions."
"Once we are in accord, we can consider what can be done. I have some ideas along those lines, but I do not wish to taint your reasoning."
Wordlessly, the Doctor gives a nod of thanks to Lutece for the support.
OOC: Not sure if you want to play this out or handwave it. Let me know if I need to roll.
