Nicolas Marlow
Local crime don.

Nicolas Marlow is the ringleader of a large artifact smuggling circuit. It is one he built with his right-hand man from the ground after a stroke of bad luck forced him to flee the country. His present business is highly lucrative, and one he has an professional handle on. He seeks to continue expanding it until he owns an entire monopoly on his trade.

His interests are completely fixated on his business. Card games, drinking, and social events are more or less to build connections instead of their recreational purposes. The same goes for women, with exception to a certain female detective that caught his eye...

Isabel ran her hand to smooth down the dress she was wearing. It had been a long time since Isabel wore something fancy. She had to borrow Ritzy's.
But the message she got from Matteo said to dress nicely for a surprise. And when Ritzy found out about it....

In other words, Ritzy gave her a makeover as well.

Matteo also told her that Marlow would pick her up. (And was also informed to pick her up and to have fun)
"This better not be some trick..." Isabel muttered "This time I'll let Marlow know about it...."

"I hope ya get yer break too, Nicky..." Matteo muttered softly before truly leaving him [b]"But damn it, whats so important about dat thing?"
Matteo knew that his pal had lost something.
But now, it beginning to make him curious. But so far, Marlow would only shrug it off or dodge the question.
"Then again, mah mouth can get me into trouble...And I know da boys would gossip more than Ritzy's broads." He snickered at the thought.

It wasn't too long before the men gathered around and prepared to leave.
"Hey 'Teo, do you think we should be in the same car together? I mean...well..." One said uncomfortably. "If the cop-girl is coming..."
The goons were unsure if they wanted to ride with the woman as well.

Matteo thought about it. "Hm...Ya right! Maybe we oughta let Marlow take the other nice ride."
Matteo smirked at the last statement.

"Alright!" He grinned, "Well I bettah get da boys together!...It might take me a while!"
He took steps backwards towards the door to maybe leave him with... a little privacy.
It had been a long day, maybe Isabel would cheer up him up where he couldn't.

Although, he couldn't help but partially close the door and linger nearby. He made sounds to pretend that he left but was still within an earshot to listen to the crime-lord.
Despite his grin, Matteo was concerned. Marlow was acting strange but only in a subtle way.

Matteo wouldn't be the type to ask...But then again
Marlow wouldn't be the type to tell...

Matteo forced a grin, "R-really? Well, ain't that wonderful news, Nicky!"
True, Matteo began to tolerate Isabel's presence just a bit more. But the fact that Marlow decided to bring her along for drinking...

"If she decides to come along... I'll make sure to get extra shots!....For us all...and da boys...Hell, I'll buy everyone in da room shots!"
He grinned. Although, he hoped that Marlow would get the idea that maybe it wouldn't be a good idea to bring the girl along...

Matteo crossed his arms.
"Dunno about being fair, Nicky. But...It's a plan ,I guess. I'll follow though with da boys. They won't question about looking around clues. They'll think it's another artifact to take. And I ain't gonna have no problem 'bout using info from da dame..."
But then he leaned in with a serious face,
"But don't think it's right to use her for magic. But that's all I gotta say...For now."
He shrugged and stood up from his chair.
"Anything else, Nicky? All this serious talk is makin' me thirsty. We oughta go celebrate!"

"A sorceress?...Wait a sec. Wait a sec."
He waved his hand trying to steady and understand. It would make sense that she would be something like the sort. But he couldn't help that she was hiding something more.
"Remember, Nicky I ain't too smart about dat stuff. Dats why you're da leader. But I'll be sure to be there for dat meeting. But ya only gonna use her for anything but magic. Right?"
Despite having dealings with artifacts with magic, for some reason it would seem wrong to ask of a girl (He doesn't know that Lily looked older now)
"If ya have all da boys look for this trinket now...They might be worried. And I know they'll be asking questions ta me. And I have no idea what goes on in yer head most of da time, but I do it. But they might not...Ya know what I mean?"

Matteo sat into his chair and listened....and nearly fell out of of it.

Regaining what he lost?

"What?? Whadda ya saying Nicky?" He jumped up excited. Like Marlow, Matteo he been trying to follow any leads to the lost trinket...Yet all lead to dead ends or chasing phantoms.
"Ain't this great news? I thought you woulda been bouncin' all ovah da place! " Matteo struggled to calm himself, he could feel his heart rate speeding up.
"Whadda we do now? Huh?"
But then he was confused,
"Wait a sec...If she knew ya lost the thingy. Then...How old is she? She can't be older than you, right?"
How could that be?....

"Good to know! I'll tell da boys As soon as possible!" He grinned with a wink . Although he knew what Marlow meant. Usually he wouldn't pulled aside by him was serious.
And his mind was swirled with several questions. It was already strange that he and the girl would come to an agreement to...anything. Did she already blow them off before?
Either way, all his questions would have to wait until afterwards....

"Hehe!! I'm sure the broad wouldn't mind too much." He chuckled at the mention of Ritzy. He didn't have any features that would attract the chatty thing anyways. But it put him at ease, so far his pal seemed to be relaxed.
"The game took a surprising turn. At the very last inning, the home team made a huge comeback. It was almost as if they hung there like their life depended on it... and it paid off!"
"So uh..." Matteo kept looking around. So far he didn't see Lily and hoped that Marlow didn't get carried away.... "What 'bout you,eh?"

Once arriving at Ritzy's store, Matteo spotted through the glass.
"Aw mannn...hope he ain't moody..." he muttered to himself and opened the door.
"Heya, Nicky! Sorry I'm late, just- Oh...sorry."
He nearly ran into a pale woman who was leaving and held the door open for her. Although, he did a double-take towards the woman.
Was that....? Nah. and disregarded the thought,

"Sorry 'bout being late, Ol'Nicky. Was watching another game."
He grinned. Marlow didn't need to know about Prise. At least, not yet anyways.
