Alexia looked uncomfortable. “I know!” She was wondering how a hive might react to a preternatural in their midst. Not very kindly, she suspected.

The ancient vampire sashayed forward to greet her, both arms extended, dressed in his version of the “casual gentleman at home.” For most men of means and taste, this meant a smoking jacket, opera scarf, long trousers, and soft-soled derbies. For Lord Akeldama, this meant that the jacket was of pristine white silk with black embroidered birds of some lean oriental persuasion splashed about, the scarf a bright peacock patterned teal, the trousers the latest in tight fitting black jacquard; and the shoes cut in a flashy wingtip style with a black and white spectator coloration that was held by many to be rather vulgar.

You would be welcome to share my unworthy domicile and hospitality, such as they are. Yours, et cetera, Lord Akeldama.”
~ from Blameless

Professor Lyall, Lord Akeldama, and Lady Maccon all pretended not to hear.
