"A curse such as lyncanthropy is threaded throughout a being's entire DNA. Removing it would kill him, or even attempting as much. But surely risking the life of one man is preferable to knowingly sending an entire village of innocent men, women and children to the jaws of a starving beast simply to sate it's hunger for, possibly, only a short amount of time. And that's all going off a theory," she said. "All the while, the Organization's entire premise is to protect those such people from things like us," she drew back into her seat.

"On the other hand. If somehow we can successfully remove the creature from the human, somewhere away from anyone that could become a possible casualty, and then find some manner in which to seal it away, no one necessarily has to die. Though.. if that doesn't work, it could likely mean our deaths and the deaths of many of your agents, including Greymane."

"It is, unfortunately, both more and less complicated than that. Alexander is, as previously stated, uniquely disconnected from his Lycanthropy, meaning if anyone has a chance of surviving something like this, it would be him. However, Lycanthropy in general is a nut built to be impossible to crack. The ones who created it make it specifically so that once they had their slave guardians, they'd have them forever. They screwed up the slave part, but had the forever bit pretty well handled." Roselyn spoke fluidly and with thought, despite the speed at which the words left her mouth. This was a speech she'd already told herself a thousand time. She reached beneath her desk and pulled out a small tome. The book was old and the writing on the cover nearly illegible and written in a strange script. "But you were right about one thing. Here." She said, opening the book and turning it towards Eris. There were, apparently recently, bookmarked pages which Roselyn thumbed through showing Eris. Most of the tome was written in the strange script, which Roselyn could apparently understand, though it strangely matched no common language. The bits she showed Eris, however, were mostly covered in imagery. Lycans being bound and weakened by silver, stripped of their pelts and torn apart to free the apparent humans within. Further in there was more imagery, but this time it was a human similarly bound. A large slice was cut down the neck and spine. Once open, massive tongs were used to grip and pull an apparent pelt from within the human's back.

"I don't advocate this idea lightly, or whole-heartedly for that matter, but even if I did we'd still need to find a way to weaken the beast. As it is now, it and Alexander both possess the strengths of the Lycan and an apparent immunity to their biggest weakness. And even then, we have to accept some manner of sacrifice with our morality in all this, or it won't matter to begin with."

Eris poured over the illustrations with acute perception, drawing out even the more minor details of the diagrams. She couldn't comprehend whatever language it was that the text had been written in, but the images spoke clearly of the activity's intended purpose. Though formed only from black ink, the illustrations were grotesque in their high amount of keen detail.

"I don't advocate this idea lightly, or whole-heartedly for that matter, but even if I did we'd still need to find a way to weaken the beast.

Eris flipped over a few pages then set the tome down. "I'm here for whatever you need. Where do we start?"
