Will Carl and Lenny see Black Mage from under that ridiculous disguise?

Cast Appearing[]



Carl Hm. Lenny, run that description of the Black Mage by me one more time.
Lenny Sure, Carl. Let's see, the suspect was reported as wearing a dopey looking pointy hat, and light blue robes that are several seasons out of style. Oh, and he has beady little eyes and he smells quote, 'really weird'.
Black Mage I do not 'smell'! Those are my spell components, you dolts! I require them to conjur up the incredibly evil powers at my command!


is what I would be saying if I were that vile, handsome, and charming servant of the damned. Curse his bones, I say! curse 'em!

(thinking) They're on to me! They're on to me! They're on to me!

Carl He has a point, y'know. He probably would say that if he really was the mage that we're looking for.
Lenny I guess we've no other choice than to check out the strip club district.
Carl Wait. Why do we have to go to the strip club district?
Lenny Tsk. Everyone knows that all black mages frequent strip clubs.
Carl No they don't
Lenny Yes they do
Carl No they--
Lenny Yes, they do.
Black Mage HELL YES WE DO!
The guards stare at Black Mage.
Black Mage OK. I have to remain calm and rational or else this could go very badly for me.

So what I have to ask myself is this: How will I dispose of their bodies...

...and where can I find enough soap to clean up the horrible, horrible bloody mess?
