Rotciv met Victus on Bourbon while in town for a chess tournament. Victus, having recently escaped a New Orleans coven, had only a guitar, but his skills quickly got the pair thinking . Loki was in New Orleans on a tour of the local cemeteries and got lost looking for lutefisk, they found him in front of the Dungeon- apparently bar policy did not allow falcons inside and he found that offensive. The trio hit it off and a few weeks later they found Jim in a dumpster behind a q-tip factory, unable to get out on his own. He claimed it smelled like "good French" cheese.
