K: "In short, Trevlious wanted revenge for the disappearance of Ellie."
She holds her hand out sideways and mumbles something. A dark flash comes from her hand and then she's holding Ellie by her collar. She looks at her and frowns.
K: "Fil should feed you more."
She shrugs again and turns back to Equiste.
K: "Anyway, he wanted revenge on Cassandra in particular, so he first traumatized her by giving her nightmares about what Ellie had done to her. Then he managed to get his hands on a piece of Reshaya's blood, which he used to cultivate a clone. At the same time he made a contract with those three demons and using time and patience managed to give them access to Reshaya's essence without our noticing. Then when Reshaya went to help Cassandra on the island and it became clear that he was in trouble Trevlious used those preparations to insert those demons into Reshaya, allowing them to take control of her. That's very roughly what happened before Fil and I came and tried to get those demons out of Reshaya."
She shakes her head.
K: "I didn't mean that it's close to the Institute, but that the main inhabitant is Hinderance, a summoner for the Institute. While I trust Hinderance, the Institute could use the fact that this residence is technically under their authority. Moving to somewhere more distant doesn't help with that much."
She glares at Equiste when he laughs about FilFire. She doesn't say that it's Equiste who can be irritated simply by mentioning FilFire's name, but it's a close thing. Unluckily the connection symbol on her back grows darker as FilFire jumps through it and climbs up onto the ceiling, grinning down at Equiste.
F: "What was that you were saying Monkey-Ears? I'm easily annoyed? You're one to talk. I simply have to throw a fireball at something and you already get all righteous. Little bit of a hypocrite aren't you?"
K: "Fil, I though you were staying behind."
F: "Yes, but then the hypocrite opened his mouth. I forgot that by not coming here I would give Monkey-Ears there free play in what to say, which naturally should be avoided at all costs."
Kuroi facepalms and sighs deeply, still holding Ellie by the collar. FilFire looks at her.
F: "Hey, why are you holding my toy?"
K: "To help with an explanation."
FilFire jumps down and grabs Ellie before jumping up again, absently scratching her behind the ears while watching the people below. Kuroi folds her arms. When Reshaya enters the room FilFire waves at her before returning to observing the others. Kuroi nods at her.
K: "That's fine by us. Although we want to talk to you about something after that."
