Cast of Characters:
Thomas Roquefort, American, archaeologist and adventurer, recently arrived in London after an expedition to Egypt
Richard George Thomas Lumley, second son of the Earl of Scarbrough
Jasper Burnside, physician and in the last two years something of a hermit. It's common knowledge that he has lost someone close and there are rumours aplenty for those willing to listen (he's my character)
At the Yard, the group meets with Jeffrey Hull, Dr Laydon and Commander Lesley Devine, who is not at all amused by the theories about cults and ritual murders they have come up with. He's even less amused by the fact that there has been another murder practically right under the nose of Inspector Fox. Fox looks decidedly unhappy when he has to present his case and it's not wholly clear whether he's more worried about losing his job or about not being able to protect Lady Kincaid.Both, probably. At least he wasn't the one who took her to the East End, that was Jasper's idea and Jasper drily remarks that Lady Kincaid knows her way around there better than anyone in the room

It seems Sir Richard is not completely useless after all. And he doesn't put much faith in gossip. Let's see if he asks Jasper about what has happened, that will be an interesting conversation. Jasper of course knows that there are rumours about what has happened and that much of it is quite vicious, but there's not much he can do about that. So even though he will find it very hard to talk about it, he would appreciate being asked.
Doctor Laydon is a clear favourite of the players as a murder suspect. We're a bit hazy on motive, but we all think he has something to do with it, even if he shouldn't be the killer.
