Prophecy of the beast and more revelations
Thanks to ltlconf for betaing this chapter
'The daughter of perfect death and the blind devil will face The Beast of The Hand in the form of one who died at the hands of a member of Aurelius, the mentor of the partner of son of a champion will train her.'
Giles could not translate any more of the prophecy that he had found in the Codex. Whoever had written it had switched to a different dialect of Latin that he was not familiar with. Although he hated to admit it, whoever had written this prophecy had tried to hide its meaning from everyone. Giles had already racked his brain and could not find any demonic species that was called 'perfect death' and searches for one called 'the blind devil' where even less fruitful. The son of a champion likely referred to Robin Wood because that was the only way the prophecy made any sense in his mind. Although certainly the matter of Glory was far more important at this time.
Angel could not believe what he was hearing: Someone had scared Lilah Morgan enough to cause her to ask for a transfer! Even more surprising was the fact that some lawyer from New York City had shown up claiming to be Faith's father. Angel had learned from Wesley that Matt was indeed Faith's father, but even Wesley could not figure out how he had learned of Faith being in jail. Well, that was until Cordelia had pointed out that a story on Faith had run in the LA Times. The fact that he seemed to scare Lilah told them that he was not one to be messed with. Just then a blind man walked into the lobby.
Moving to the front of the reception desk Angel asked, "Who are you?".
"Matt Murdoch, and I'm just wondering what you know about Faith." Matt said in a firm tone.
"She's a psycho." Cordelia said before Angel or Wesley could stop her.
"From what I've read on her so far she is simply a traumatized, self-destructive teen." Matt said 'glaring' at Cordelia.
"She killed two people." Cordelia said.
"One in a situation that is a case of mistaken identity. The other is just her word, and the fact no psychological evaluation was done means that she never should have even received that particular charge in the first place." Matt said.
"How is one a case of mistaken identity?" Cordelia asked, realizing he knows a lot more then he lets on.
"Cause of death was a wooden stake through the heart, so Faith had mistaken him for a vampire -not that I'll say that in a court of law." Matt said smirking.
"You know," was all Cordelia could say. This took her off guard as in their experience other then Wolfram & Hart, no lawyers seemed to know about the supernatural.
"Yes, I know and I'm surprised that you allow a vampire to be that close to you even in daytime." He said before he left the Hyperion leaving them gaping and wondering who was he exactly.
Angel turned to Wesley "Any ideas as to how he can sense me, but not the having me sense him?" He asked.
Wesley was stunned "The Council had no information on him knowing about the supernatural and wrote him off as a non-factor at best, although I'm beginning to see why he is feared by Wolfram & Hart."
