As the party heads back to Sweethall they hear a cry for help. Two thugs are toying with a Iskra, a young woman in a dark alley. The party rushes to her rescue and the thugs flee. The lightly armored thug dashes off, but Ortry Fannon, the more heavily armored one, is surrounded and surrenders. Ortry is a foot solder for the Pearl Dogs complete with the two finger ring and pearlescent teeth and nails..
Ortry folds under Oswalds fierce questioning. He confesses he was hired to kill Iskra for 10g and another 40g upon completion by a human male named Doffel. He has a note and a rendezvous at a warehouse on Able Row in two days time. The group confiscates the note, his belongings, then sends him off with a warning to keep quiet.

The group runs out of interview targets. Complaints from Kasam and Olaf for food and drink culminate in a trip to the Sodden Barrel. Lesser groups might have bathed before interrogating Brother Fabitor or dining, but not our heroes.
