Chapter 23, page 18 – Tirinisho’s clone, Cadence

Summary of the story so far:  Tirinisho sacrificed herself to stop the time-fuckery of Cadence who is from the future.  But who is Cadence?  and how is she related to Tirinisho?  Tirinisho told Tirin, Sariel, Reny and the goblins that Torgi would know the answers.  Torgi explains how Tirinisho confided in him, seeking his help to investigate further.  Torgi tells them about how Tirinisho was bit by a Zenithian Nosferatu.  Although the vampire was killed, Tirinisho began to act strangely.  Alarmed, Tirinisho accessed Sariel's time probe - a device that can travel into the future.  Torgi helped unlock the device and helped Tirinisho use it to view what happens to herself in the future.  Tirinisho finds out that her future self seeks pleasure and wellness outside of Tirinite HQ and develops a hunger for human blood --- she is not a vampire because Frilengo, the vampire that bit her, has been killed, but as an unfortunate side effect, Tirnisho has a thirst for blood.  She hides this well and doesn't confide in any of her Tirinite colleagues.  She continues to function as a Tirinite, but she secretly clones herself to help her obtain the blood she needs.  After multiple generations she establishes her own syndicate of clones that farm blood and do other illegal activities to fund their efforts.  

Tirinisho's timeprobe has advanced far into the future, taking her to an encounter of her future self with one of her clones, Cadence.

  1. So, this is how it begins, with the end

    1. cue the doors: this is the end…

      1. Now it’s been ten thousand years
        Man has cried a billion tears

        1. Zager and Evans! Looove that song!!!

  2. They’re both so Fucking Hot, it’s hard to believe that they’re about to try to kill each other. Somehow, the Mohawk just makes it better. You can really sense the lack of respect in Cadence’s voice. She has waited weeks for this opportunity. I suspect her rampage in the past, was her way of preventing her own demise. She was probably aware of past Tirinisho’s knowledge of her own actions, and feared that her existence was jeapordized. Or, maybe she’s just a nasty cunt?

    1. That ‘rampage’ hasn’t happened yet
      Only Cad is going to try and kill Nisho

    2. Joe: i think it’s the latter 😁

  3. So, Nisho was watching herself in a future only one hairdo away, playing fouz-ball with Cadence, a clone from so far in the future that she has tech that time-freezes Reny’s 1200-year advanced nanites? That’s like me visiting Fred Flintstone to get a head start on controlling the fossil fuel economy.

    (My best pun of the season fell flat last week. 🙁 They’ll only get worse from here. “Desperate? What are uon about?”)

    1. Love it (and last week’s) keep ’em coming!! 😂

    2. How do we know it’s just one hairdo away? This is at least two (unless you don’t count recolouring)
      Also, when time travel is involved, tech basically means shit-kiss (one step removed from bup-kiss) when you can travel anywhen to acquire more ‘advanced’

  4. Yay! Nice “incentive”! Thanks!

    1. 👍
