The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

As she headed to the nearest bar, she remembered that she had to meet somewhere to help Tiffany. Lau groaned, and walked several more blocks to get to the fourth nearest bar, and once there she had to go into a hidden room to meet with some guy Tiffany was trying to impress. He'd apparently left to do something, and would be back in a few minutes.

"So you're the one I've heard so much about. Hear you couldn't divulge a secret if you tried. Why should I trust you?" The small-time crewleader with delusions of grandeur said. Lau gave an annoyed grunt and tapped the ugly scar on her neck. "Okay, but what are you good for?"

He was the one that had asked for her presence. If he'd heard about her, why didn't he know what she was good for? What, was he asking for credentials? Fine. She would show him. Music started again. Well, if it could happen multiple times, whatever strange thing that was going on today wasn't so bad. She grinned.

"I am the very model of a modern major criminal
And I will help you anytime I see that it's reciprocal
Upon working with me you'll realize I am not typical
Don't worry I will leave you soon for I am quite transitional" She began dancing as the bacground music played for a bit, and playing around with one of her knives. She gestured to herself.

"My talents as a coppercloud are simply just phenomenal
And barely any know my name and I find this is quite pivotal
Inquisitors in Luthadel do not look for me anywhere
Which means that I can go around and be just about everywhere"

"If the are enough boxings I can help you find a secret lair
But no matter what price it were, I wouldn't, for you, risk a hair.
I'll help you every time that I do see that it's reciprocal
I am the very model of a modern major criminal!"

"I have been in the underground the entirety of my life,
And in that time I sure have caused a very fair amount of strife.
Despite my life of thievery I am very willing to share
So long as I can later cash in any favour you can spare
I have good information in on every well-known thief and crook
You’ll be surprised, just listening is basically all that it took
It's true, odds of me growing old are just infinitesimal
Though I will tell you right up front my cut will not be minimal."

"I’ve led a life of crime and theft and forgery and all the rest,
I can assure that I will never just turn into a tiring pest
I'll help you every time that I do see that it's reciprocal,
I am the very model of a modern major criminal."

"I know how to stab and kill and forge and steal and write and spell,
But usually I never talk, at best I may just ring a bell.
I'll help you every time that I do see that it's reciprocal,
I am the very model of a modern major criminal."

The music continued for a bit, wound down, and Lau grinned at him with self-importance. The man nodded.

"Well, I'll be in touch through the cook. We'll see what we can do." He said. She rolled her eyes and headed out. Where did Tiffany get these guys? And why did he want to impress them? Still, as she left, she did it with a spring on her step. At least for now, she could sing. She hadn't sung in years. She was going to milk this for all she could, even if it was just for one day. What else could she sing about?
