"You say you're Directrix?"

The blue-blonde haired girl nodded. Elly continued to inspect her for a short time, before finally allowing the visitor in. "I'll just consult with Circe."

She led the so-called directrix to a small waiting room before heading off down the hallway. Lyn waited inside just long enough for Elly to turn the corner, before hurrying quietly after the conic. She could follow the trail only as far as a study though - peering inside, the room looked empty.

After a quick search, Lyn reverted to her slope-intercept form and called up Slope. "I'm inside," she reported. "Place must have had a crazy architect, it lacks right angles... and one of the Conics vanished from inside a room."

The holographic image of Slope looked pensive. "Their residence would be made up of different conic sections," she said. "Look for something that might trigger a hidden passage."

Lyn scanned the wall of the study. A pair of mounted blades caught her eye, as it looked like they could be moved from side to side. She peered closer at the label underneath, and nodded at what she read:  Transverse Axes.
