IC-Ep 2-Bearding the Lion(Story/Elizabeth/Lucius/Brook)

Story and his companions infiltrate the conspiracy and break into various houses in an effort to uncover evidence, and Senator Scaevola is implicated. Caelia Alba courageously visits Scaevola's secret lair to gather information. While their Roman friends spend an uneasy night dreading what may come tomorrow, the TARDIS crew bluffs its way in to Scaevola's villa to thwart his schemes, but all does not go as planned.

Lucius Verres

Lucius was getting nervous as the tension raised in the room. He slowly put his hand closer to his hidden dagger to ready himself in case of trouble. Keeping his calm he discretely look around him in search of something out of the ordinary and a quick exit point in case things get out of control.

Lucius was easily able to identify the exits from the room, as could everyone else, usually a good idea when things looked about to head south. In addition to the open doorway leading back to the atrium, there was a closed door on the opposite side of the room. Based on what he knew of the layout of the typical Roman villa, this would lead to the peristylium, a large outdoor garden. There didn't seem to be anything here that would make an effective weapon if it came to a fight, but fortunately he and the others already had knives.

Lucius Verres

Lucius had a brief moment of lucidity as he see the scene develop in front of him. The movement of Scaevola remebered him the sing that did Caelia back at the egyptian palace that was identifying the Brotherhood member to one another.

Lucius, in a try to calm Scaevola and make the plan work, bow slightly himself to Scaevola and say: "We are with you sir". After doing so, Lucius put his hand partly into his toga just as Scaevola did, hoping it will be sufficient to convince him.

Scaevola seemed mollified by Lucius's gesture. "My apologies, Brother," he said. "You should have simply identified yourself at the outset."

"Dominus," said the servant girl, "they may be members of the Brotherhood, but that does not mean they can be trusted. Those two were here earlier tonight." She indicated Elizabeth and Lucius. "Why did they not deliver the message at that time, if it was so urgent? They may have an agenda of their own for telling you this. Perhaps they are jealous that it was you who was chosen to carry out this task and reap the rewards. I suggest you test them."

Scaevola nodded. "You are wise beyond your years, Akana." He paced across the room to stand in front of the closed door at the opposite end. "You say you know Mater Kemnebi? Describe him to me. How tall is he? How old is he? What color is his hair? What color are his eyes?"

Brook also makes the small handsign, and looks to Scaevola. She makes a bow, speaking softly: "Forgive me, Brother, I have not gazed upon Mater Kemnebi myself. But I was sent to strengthen the dagger. I descend from a distant land, where Magic is strong. Bring the blade, and we will prove it through only a few drops of my Virgin blood."

"Magic may be strong in Britannia," said Scaevola, "but you are far too young to be a powerful enough sorceress to prepare the blade. What of the rest of you? Do any of you truly know Master Kemnebi?"

Story takes the gamble and drops the act. Summoning his most regal Time Lord tone he says, "No, we don't know Master Kemnebi personally, but in a manner of speaking I am a seer and I know what you are planning to do. While Caesar will die by assassination as you plot, it can not be by the blade of the Dagger of Ra or the Brotherhood's hand!"

Spoiler:
It's not easy to intimidate a Senator (who is more than just a Senator) in his own home, but he will react appropriately.
Scaevola's eyes narrowed, and he glared at Story. "I have come too far and gotten too close," he said. "I'm not going to let you stop me now!" With that, he threw open the door. "Guards!" he shouted, hurrying through it.
