Lucien nodded to Friction. "Thanks for the save. Any clue who these guys are or what they were after?" The Warlock began to trace lines on the ground with his index finger, leaving a thin glowing line of light. After he had built a rather complicated arcane design he dragged a semi-conscious thug over and placed his head in the center of the circle. As the man came to his first view would be the ominous cloaked form of Lucien. His second would be the faintly glowing arcane circle he was in.
"Listen, Jerry. Can I call you Jerry? You are in a lot of trouble, but if you help me I can help you. Tell me what I want to know and I won't have to dig around your mind for it. Capesh?"
The crook began stammering but Lucien cut him off and asked a few very specific questions which the terrified thug answered readily. When Lucien was done he made a gesture and the arcane runes faded. "Run." Was all he said to the thug who scrambled away.
