    The return of Alanna Scrimgeour and the rest of her little gang to Ulysses' life did not have him in a good mood, and if he had been in the mood to blame anyone for his picking a fight after work it would have been her.

    But Ulysses was not in the mood to blame anyone. His knuckles were bruised and bloodied and he had a black eye, among other bruises on his side - usually he could handle himself in a fight but some days, like today, he was outmatched.

    He was in pain and almost tempted to try and fix himself with his wand as he shuffled through the kitchen, swearing under his breath. It was the shoddy alcohol that Ulysses reached for and the shoddy alcohol that he dropped on the floor, flinching as the bottle shattered into little glass shards and the liquid spilled over the floor.

    "Shit shit SHIT!" Ulysses shouted, not bothering with even trying to control his volume.

Dia had been in hers and Eris's room reading when she'd heard yelling. It was unmistakably Ulysses and usually she wouldn't care about the on-goings of other people but this was her family. So in her usual lazy motions she put a ribbon to hold her place and stood, walking in a slow yet graceful movement to the communal kitchen. There she saw Ulysses cursing and a broken bottle on the ground. He was looking worse for wear and for a moment she felt a bit of sadness. However years of being as emotionally apathetic as she could be meant that the emotion lasted only a moment before it went away.

"Ulysses," She started in her serene, far-away tone, "Ulysses calm down." She walked to him and knelt to pick up pieces of glass. "It's just a broken bottle..." She said it so softly as she put the pieces of glass into her hand, not flinching at all when one piece pricked her finger. Ulysses was so prone to anger and she never understood it. Finishing with the glass she threw it in the waste bin and grabbed a rag to wipe up the liquid. When she was finished she wordlessly grabbed Ulysses into her arms and stroked his head gently. "What happened?" She asked softly, wanting to know why he was hurt. Though her facade was emotionless, when it came to her family, she did care. Even if she couldn't always show it.

    Ulysses watched with a scowl on his face as Dia cleaned up. He wanted to punch something, but that had already not worked out well for him, and he was not about to hit Acedia for no reason.

    "Picked a fight and lost it," Ulysses said, shrugging, "Wasn't too complicated." He was in Dia's arms and his eyes were closed as he tried to find a breathing rhythm that would calm him down.

    Ulysses could not remember a time when making himself be less angry had been easy. He also could not remember a time when Dia had not been the only person on the planet that could calm him down without yelling back at him; and as he breathed deeply and managed to detach himself from his anger just a bit.

    "Remember those kids from Brixton?" he said suddenly, eyes still shut. "Alanna Scrimgeour and Bensen and Juliette and Delilah and them?" He only remembered the last name of the one that had vexed him the most, but he thought that Dia would know who he was talking about.

Typically, Ulysses and Dia were not the closest amongst their little family. He was much more attached to Vidia in ways that Dia didn't understand just as she was much closer to Eris. But Ulysses and she had a special sort of bond. She was always able to help calm him when he got angry just by simply being there and talking with him. She figured it was her calmness that did it and she was - though she would never acknowledge - glad that she had a special bond with him that no one else had. He was special to her just as all of her family was and she was glad that she could help him.

When he asked about those people from Brixton's she was a bit perplexed. She kept her arms around him, however, and simply spoke softly: "Yes, I remember." Because she did. They had run in different circles and found a family amongst themselves just as she, Ulysses, Dem and the others found a family together. Why he was speaking of them so suddenly was a bit odd so she asked "What brings them up?" hoping to get answers. It had been years since they'd seen or heard from them so she wondered what it could be that brought them up. Were they in Irvingly? It seemed a stretch that they should find their way to the same place that the Dantes had but she supposed it wasn't impossible.

    "They're fuckin' here," Lyss said, angry again. He remained enclosed in Dia's arms which was good because it meant he could not punch the wall, and the reminder that those assholes were here really made him want to.

    "Here here. They live in the building. I ran into Alanna when I was smoking yesterday," Ulysses said, rolling his eyes at the memory of the encounter. "They call themselves the Aurelias now."

    He had found Alanna to be superior, and annoying, and Ulysses wasn't sure if he had forgotten how much he despised her or if he hated her more now. Her 'siblings' paled in comparison to her, in his opinion, but they were all assholes too - and if they hadn't lived in the same building (merlin damnit) he probably would have been very tempted to set their house on fire.

    But they were in the same building, so he couldn't. And Lyss had the unfortunate feeling that they were going to be running into the Aurelias a lot more here in Irvingly than they had in years.
