Citadelofthelost
This ancient Citadel, its location unbeknownst to anyone but members of the Black Parade, lies as the sanctuary for them. It is a place that acts as a black market, to trade lucrative items at very handsome prices, a briefing area for assassinations and spies, and training areas for all of Sabrina's paraders. The members of the Black Parade all refer to the Citadel by the codename "Midnight House", to protect its security.

She was arriving just now, at around 11:05, with a loud crack. She'd been tending to some business when she'd realized that crap, Nico was arriving now. Leaning back against a wall, she waits in silence.

Emerging from the shadows behind another pillar, he looks at his watch. "You're five minutes late."

"Blame a busy schedule," Tessa rolls her eyes. She pushes herself away from the wall and approaches him. "It's nice to see you're so punctual," she offers a half-smile; more than she's given most of humanity in the past year. "Welcome to the Citadel, Nico."

"Thank you." he says, approaching her as he continues to look around. "Does this place have any proper lighting or are we willingly damaging our eyesight for the aesthetic?" he muses sarcastically.

"It's for the aesthetic," she affirms, her lips lifting into a smirk. "I'm obliged to give you the introduction I give all my recruits, though at this point, I'm sure you know about this place to some extent," she purses her lips and gives him a meaningful look. She crosses her arms over her chest and stares up at him. "You will be doing everything here. From training for your missions to debriefing, all the way to residing here as well should you need it. The Citadel has what's essential for the Parade's survival and then some, including an apothecary, a training arena and an infirmary. You'll be reporting to myself and Karith - the keeper of the Citadel and the one training the recruits. I will personally be overseeing your progress, intervening where I see fit and sending you on missions once I believe you're ready," she pauses. "I know you're adept with technology. I think those abilities would prove to be a useful asset to the Parade."

He takes in all the information bit by bit, absorbing the parts he didn't already know. "Spoken like a true queen of crime." he responds, "And you're correct; just tell me if you need anything in particular."

Only what Adele told him. "I knew enough." he replies vaguely, because of course how was he supposed to explain that her missing mother filled him in on everything so he'd have an easier time watching over her? "I haven't tried checking on who the other new members are yet."

"You should do that soon. I suspect you'll be among the first on a mission," she remarks. "You likely won't find them all as... pleasant as I do, but try to come around to trusting them, yes?"

"Am I truly that wonderful?" she smirks and leans in, forcefully looping her arms around his and tugging him further into the Citadel of the Lost. "Aren't we all mad in here? And, well, of course there's murderers around. In fact, you're linking arms with one," she actually laughs.

Not liking human contact very much in the first place, her last statement gives him an excuse to promptly un-link his arm from hers. "So, what's this?" he asks, "The grand tour?"

"Get over yourself," Tessa mutters, rolling her eyes at Nico's actions. "No, not really. You need to figure out how to get around the Citadel on your own, because I have other things to do. Just make sure to report to the training arena first thing tomorrow morning."

As the clock ticks down to eleven, she approaches the main corridor. She waits patently and silently, leaning against the wall with her arms crossed.

A minute or two late, Queen appears with a large crack. She calmly steps forward and looks around. 'It's uh... It's very.... Crypt-chic." She speaks up, chuckling slightly.

Mere seconds later, Elaine appeared with the same tell-tale crack but instead of stopping, she snagged Queen's arm with a low snicker and dragged her further down the hall and into the darkness of the Citadel. "Almost like daddy described it," she purred and spotted Tessa, allowing their steps to come to a halt.

She stares on at Elaine and Queen with their immature antics, an impassive look on her face. She's not amused by their inability to maintain some degree of seriousness. "Welcome to the Citadel of the Lost," Tessa steps forwards, heels clicking against the floor while her hands are tucked in her back pockets. "Also known as the Black Parade's headquarters."

"Tessa," she said as she came to a stop, eyes taking in the other's form as if she were considering Queen's suggestion. For a moment, it looked as if her normal brown eyes flickered with actual fire, the red soon slipping back into the darkness of her irises as she cracked an infuriating smirk.

"Right," Tessa rolls her eyes. "On a more serious note, you guys will do everything here. From training for your missions to debriefing, all the way to residing here as well should you need it. The Citadel has what's essential for the Parade's survival and then some, including an apothecary, a training arena and an infirmary. You will both report to myself or Karith - your trainer. I will personally be overseeing your progress, intervening where I see fit, and sending you on missions once I believe you're ready," she explains, while beginning to walk further down the dim-lit hall. "Do not humiliate or dishonor the Parade; we are your family now. Have I made myself clear so far?"

Queen was honestly impressed at how... Professional Tessa was being. In fact, she couldn't help but grin at her friend's sudden change in demeanor, obviously a little bit proud to actually call her a friend. "Tessa, El and I will do everything in our power to make you and the Parade proud."

Apparently eyerolls were contagious because she couldn't help herself from doing so as she carefully piled dark locks up into a messy ponytail. "When do we get started?" she inquired, her eyes slipping around the Citadel to capture glimpses of her new hide-out.

"Sabrina's current whereabouts are irrelevant to this conversation," she says, her tone suddenly sharp and icy. "The Citadel has living quarters. You can take up residence in any of them. The Parade is currently in a state of recruitment, like I told you, but Karith is around to start training you and the rest upon joining."

"Don't make me regret picking you for this," Tessa sighs and shakes her head. "Karith will train you in the areas where you're lacking, but ultimately it's going to be you to try and not die or get caught. Once we see you're ready, you'll start being sent in missions. I expect you not to fail nor humiliate The Black Parade," she says. "I suggest you get acquainted with the Citadel; it's your new home," That said, she turns, beginning to walk in the general direction of the living quarters.
