The group had breakfast at the Laughing Beholder and asked Luigi if any of the magistrate clerks ever frequent the establishment.  He told them a woman named Theda comes in about once a week and that Daiyu knows her pretty well.  Daiyu’s shift wasn’t set to start for another hour or so, so Komorebi began performing some local songs to get the crowd ready for Daiyu to arrive.  She came in, recognized the songs and joined in.  Afterward, they talked about Neko’s plight and Theda.  Daiyu knows Theda and was able to tell them about her and how her husband, Branon, died recently, leaving her widowed with a 5-year-old son.  The group went and met her on her way to work at the courthouse, talked a while, and convinced her to make sure the trial occurred with Magistrate Wallaby in exchange for some financial support for her son. 

They left Theda and went to Ferguson’s Bank to setup a fund for the widow.  They met with banker Sigmund Ripanu who was happy to meet with their money.  The party setup a 2,000 gp 13-year annuity for the family as a payment for a “business arrangement” with Branon paid out posthumously.  They also ended up adopting not one, but two, kittens from Sigmund, in part for his discretion. 

Next they went to visit Neko in jail.  They had to bribe their way back and learned the rumors of Bral’s prison system is as terrible as advertised.  There they healed some of his wounds and let him know they are working on his defense. 

Then the party went to see the old couple whose home was damaged by the fire.  They used mending to restore some of their items and then met with a dwarven contractor and paid him 1,000 gp to immediately start repairs on the home.  They got the couple to agree to testify to their efforts to restore what was lost.  The team also setup housing at the Laughing Beholder for the couple until the repairs are completed.

Finally, they visited the low Magistrate’s office and met with a halfling investigator named Jocelyn Boyer.  She was incredibly bored and disinterested until they mentioned maybe being able to bring in the gnoll from the high-profile arson case.  She was instantly intrigued and eager to get the gnoll in custody.  The team left and got the gnoll and brought her in.  Detective Jocelyn arrested her and began telling everyone how she made such an impressive arrest!  In talking the team somehow then agreed to teach her to play cards at the Laughing Beholder.
