Whilst Eugenia engages Ezra in conversation about her work with Believe (and against the Black Court), Riza moves directly to examine the body.
Though preserved in the morgue, Wayne’s body smells worse than you would expect. Even if you know what to expect.
The wound is rotting from the inside, faster than should be possible.
According to the Medical Examiner’s report, Roberts was killed by a single stab wound, with a sharp weapon that, when it hit his rib, glanced off rather than sawing in (which is rather odd given the knife’s sharpness). Riza’s examination of the body shows nothing that would cast doubt on this description.
According to Lore, the body has traces of residual magic, and the wound was affected by some form of biomancy
Ezra joins Riza in the examination, although he is less hands-on than she was. He does take small samples from the wound for later investigation.
Ezra and Riza discuss using a thaumaturgical ritual to experience Robert’s last moments, but decide that they will need to make preparations in order to conduct this ritual.
Riza examines the corpse with the Sight
Violent death is harsh and jagged to wizardly eyes. Roberts did not die easily
The residue of powerful magic, its shape reminiscent of White Council (and, in particular, Warden training) is still attached to Roberts, with its residue leading off to the southwest
The wound is a hotbed of Biomantic life. The spell that infests it (or the remains of the spell?) is not of human origin. Aspect: Bursting with Magical Life
Ezra examines the corpse, and its wound, with the Sight
The wound contains magic similar to, but not exactly like, summer’s magic. Aspect: It’s not quite summer Ezra finds himself unable to look away.
The corpse as a whole is infused with the residue of Warden’s magic. Aspect: Life energy fuelling a distant spell
