Let's fast-forward a bit. Tao has come and gone from your humble abode. They were summoned back to their Daimyo's dwelling for a nightly report, so you've had some time to yourself. You performed your nightly backup, did some info-trading (work your gig), and have had some time to unwind. You've noticed your cyberbrain is acting weird — Kage's face has been indistinct for the last few hours, and you've been feeling conflicted... Before you're able to put your finger on the exact cause, you get a ping summoning you to an online chat with a familiar name: Ceres, your point of contact within the Oni, requesting an urgent meet.
Tell me about Ceres. How did you meet them, and why do you owe them Giri?
