    The door to the Sherrifs office will open, and a very dirty guard will walk in, his eyes slightly unfocused
    “Deputy Manifred reporting for duty…sir? Umm….Sheriff, why was I buried in the graveyard?”

    Flash walked in with a smile. He wore his usual outfit and combat armor. Looking to see if Kei was in. He frowned tho seeing the dirt covered and disheveled man. “Wait…. come again?” Flash asked as he heard the man’s words.

    Looking at the new arrival, Manny’s face will look a little less worried.
    “Flash! Thank the gods, I feel like I’ve been standing here for weeks….I remember taking that gate wars guy some food, and he asked if he could see his werewolf trophy, so I figure it couldn’t hurt anything….He ripped the jaw off and went straight for my throat. But why was I buried instead of brought to the healers guild?”

    Flash blinked a few times. “I honestly have no idea on that one. Perhaps you shattered?” Flash tapped his chin in thought for a moment then nodded. “We will do some questions then a quick test to see what’s up and bam we should have you right as rain in no time.” Flash smiled. “First off and just a formality as this kind of thing has happened on my world and I want to get it out of the way. Do you have a all consuming and never ending urge to devour the flesh, organs, or brains of the living?”

    Manny will look confused for moment, then realize what he’s being asked and grin
    “Nah, but I could murder a steak sandwich right now. With onions, tomato and a cold draft. Oh…and maybe some raw liver on the side?”

    Flash smiles and holds up a small package to him. “Home made barbeque chicken and bacon wrap.” He said with a chuckle handing the food to the man. “Right so next question. Do you feel dead?”

    Kei had been doing something a little further into the the office tucked away from the entrance when Manny, and then Flash came in. He’d heard the conversation but had been in the middle of putting away files and refused to break what he was doing with being close to finishing. With it not properly being taken care of though Kei makes his way out of the smaller back room. His fur is actually pretty well kept for once and Chainbraker with the Hero’s Might medallion affixed to it is over his torso so it’s there but not in the way. His quiver of arrows sits at his right hip with a sword upon his left, both held there by the belt that is tight around his waist.

    “Sorry for the wait.” Dark eyes find themselves searching over the once thought to be dead man he approaches to get a better look at him. As he does so those paying attention can see his nose flare as he scents the air for the stench of death.

    “Hey was that gonna be mine?” The man looks a little put out at the idea of a hand made meal meant for him going to someone else, but doesn’t contest it. Instead he just shrugs his shoulders a little. “Ya know what, whatever. And yes, the whole feeling dead thing is a great question. Your answer for food is still slightly concerning with the whole ‘raw liver on the side’ thing. Not normally a real staple for a human’s meal as I don’t believe your metabolisms are particularly made to deal with the possible pathogens held within that type of raw meat.”

    As he speaks he crosses his arms and leans back against his paper covered desk. His trench coat can be seen tossed over the back of the chair and it’s easy enough to tell he’s most likely spent the bulk of his day here.

    Flash scoffs and produces a second parcel for Kei. “Ofcourse not little brother, I gave him mine. I brought you one as well, figured you could use a nice meal.” Flash smiled more and handed it over to Kei. “I am running off of two theories here. First one is he might have shattered and revived as a revenant. Would not be the craziest thing. Second is the skull still had a bit of the lichanthrope curse, well not a cure as I know a couple werewolves who are rather nice… condition? Or whatever but yeah he might have been infected when his throat was slit and bam warewolf.”

    OOG: Manny looks 100% Terran, no death scar noticeable anywhere, his skin flush with normal blood flow

    Manny will look confused “So..it’s normal to be dead and buried when you get turned into a werewolf? I mean…how long was I dead?!”
    He will start to look panicked, clutching the sandwich that Flash tossed him like a lifesaver on the sea.

    A huge grin splits Kei’s face and he happily accepts the food. Like what happens a good deal of the time he’d gotten wrapped up in his work and forgotten to eat that day. Had there not been Manny there he would have hoped forward to give the taller man a hug in thanks. Instead he just speaks his thanks and takes a bit as he circles Manny to take a good look at him.

    “Unfortunately I’m leaning far more toward lycanthropy. You hold none of the signs of being a revenant. And you’ve been dead foooorrr. Two or so months? I can’t say I know to much about how you were taken care of as I was busy dealing with other things and I think other officers took care of it. As for if it’s normal or not I’ve got no clue. I’ll be honest that I know very little about lycanthropy but I believe there’s some base regeneration that exists. Given how bad I was informed the wound was, and time taken for it to fully kick in to try and make the changes to you genetic make up it’s not impossible that it would take two months time.” He reaches out and puts a steadying and on Manny’s shoulder and offers a reassuring smile.

    “We’ll help you through whatever this is though I promise.”

    Calming a bit, Manny will realize that he’s destroying Flash’s gift and shove it into his mouth, eating happily
    “Okay, this is good! the chicken was killed 2 days ago, cooked up about 2 hours, the bacon need a bit more time to cure and who puts tarragon on chicken that’s going to be given a good sauce? I don’t know, but I like it!”
    After devouring the wrap, he will sigh happily before sniffing the air
    “What’s that other smell? It smells…REALLY good. I can’t quite place it….I taste..salt in the air? Copper? I don’t know why, but it makes me more hungry…”

    As Manny rattles off information Kei’s ears slowly go farther and farther back, eyes flicking to Flash with concern.

    “Thaaaaat’s… Not normal. The whole knowing the meat thing. And I’m guessing what you might be smelling is,” a sharp claw is used upon the back of his own wrist to open up a cut, letting the iron scent of his blood into the air and crimson taint his white fur. “blood? No matter what you’re not just human anymore. There’s no denying that.”

    “Well… that definitely solves that riddle. From that I can say with almost certainty you are indeed a werewolf. Also if you don’t mind I am going to scan you with a device I have that will tell me for sure.” He reached down and pulled the custom gine tester from his belt and held it up to show it was not harmful.

    Manny will watch both Sheriff and Deputy with complete trust.
    A Flash scans the recently deceased deputy’s genes, he will get a confused reading. it will show Terran, Werewolf and something else, something not recognized by the gene testers data base.
    As Kei watches, he will see Manny laser focused on the newly opened cut, his eyes will start to glow red, mouth parting to show rapidly growing fangs
    “Umm….fuck is going on?”
