[AW] Charred Secrets
#1
Backdated to October 6th, after the fire.

As Woodsmoke went a sleeping, sleeping soundly in her den, flames were a creeping, creeping high in the night. Smoke had billowed while she dreamed, and what was left was soaked and dirty. Water cast and mud flung to bring the fiery beast to rest. The rogue snooped and snuck, sneering at anything seemingly amiss. Rogues were thieves and spies, but wasn't the flipside of that coin a detective?

Not that she really knew of the concept of an investigator, nay, that profession flew the coop when man fell and canine rose as Luperci. An odd sight for anyone to behold, Woodsmoke was standing on two legs, wearing loose fitting clothes. Likely everything was stolen, but the origins of her threads were not the suspect in this investigation. In fact, there was no suspect!

The woman wanted to find evidence, anything that could point her to the culprit. Of course she had no idea who or what it could be. She herself had a strong alabi of sleeping in her literal hole-in-the-ground home. Her posture and overall demeanor was different. A bit Kyle-like if anyone in the know could figure out. Suffice to say some could mistake her for a stranger if they didn't know her well.

"Do you know who did this?" She asked Cherub who was perched on her shoulder, hoping he had witnessed the event unfold.

Quote the raven, "no know."

She hummed to herself, poking around the charred remains before her icy eyes migrated to a passerby. "And you?" She asked with gusto. "Do you know set fire to the house?"
