So you've just put him into Trauma. He'll be there for at least a day, and
you've got his body, clothes, wallet, car and keys. And he has a role that
is clearly worthwhile - a private eye, with proper licensing.
But you haven't got time to deal with his role. There's that possible Djinn in the hospital - you caught this guy, along with the Belseraph, on their way to him. There's those Ethereals, manifest on the Corporeal - or maybe long-lasting possession - with some very weird powers, and a possible case of them using the Song of Exchange. And there's these potential Soldiers, who have a destiny that Yves has told Michael he doesn't need-to-know, because that would risk spoiling it. He isn't just being unhelpful: he said the same thing to Laurence too.
OK, so none of you have had to invoke a Superior for, oh... five days! Then there were four of them, Michael, Laurence, Janus and Jean. That DP didn't last very long. But things are still far too hairy for you to be paying attention to trashing this role, even if it belongs to a Gamester; those potential Soldiers were spotted at the big showdown, and the Ethereals have come along since then, as well as the Shedite of Factions who's been living in a family in the same street as the Belseraph of Lust you got redeemed. Really, things are a bit complicated.
They're mostly Windies, but they have a few helpers. Someone with a Library Card, for example. And someone who's good at bugging. And someone from Trade. They handle their own travel, creativity and demolitions. And they insist on the exclamation mark!
If the Gamester is sensible, he'll never go near his old role. Being a Gamester, he might even not do it, although he was being the kind of person who could go missing for a week without attracting comment, and his body is unlikely to have been identified. If you kill someone in a hospital, the mortuary is the logical place to stash them, isn't it? And they don't store bodies wearing their clothes, jewellery, contact lenses, papers, or anything else. Rolebusters! have got all that, now.
If he does... well, the house looks the same, and the spare key is still under the flowerpot. His car's been towed, but that isn't surprising; it was left in the hospital car park. His credit cards seem to have been places, mind you, as has the mortgage on his house. His computer is still here, and unchanged, honestly. Some of the e-mail he sent may cause certain problems, you understand: we assume that the Game monitors it all, and some of the things he sent to some people before he was killed will cause them to ask questions. Pity about the problem with the 'phone, which will now only get a small dairy in Ireland. it looks like he blew his savings while he was on the credit card spree, and took out thirty loans on the house. And assaulted the local magistrate who is due to renew his license - next week. "You thought it was next year? Not according to our records."
Burning down his house and burgling his office would lack style. We might leave a notice saying "Warning: your role has been booby trapped". Somewhere he won't find it too fast, like in a heel of his spare pair of shoes along with the microphone and the GPS tracker.
Oh, and servants of Theft did all this. The trail to them isn't too clear, but it's there when you look. By a fortunate coincidence, we have quite good evidence that the person who sent him to the hospital was a Djinn of Theft; every little helps.
Some Windies like their support jobs.
