Alright, in that case I'll ask seTiny for permission to start another recruitment thread. Mike and Lauren are both in the coterie so this will be for the other two spots. I'll move the plot ahead a few weeks game-time as well so if you want your characters to have accomplished some task in the meantime just let me know. For all we know they achieved some positions of authority as a result of vanquishing the creature in Morningside Park such as becoming a deputee of Qadir al-Asmai... Or they gained some credibility with Uncle Smelly and his Nossie followers. Feel free to let me know what you're thinking through pm too for extra sneakiness.
