Hello everyone - Sorry for the delay, I usually check twice a day on here, morning & evening, but realizing people are quick to post, I'll do it more frequently.
Yes, D'arkze intentionally stalked Daniel some time because he is great at analyzing behaviors and decided he would be a perfect person to manipulate into the situation. Perhaps they were good acquaintance over the last several weeks and D'arkze convinced him to act on this strange compulsion @Worthlessplebian ?
Why he picked the billionaire would have to do with his prestige, renown, and influence more so than a personal vendetta. News would travel fast and get people's attention than most others.
@jasmineHere D'arkze also is associated with Ilias - helping her expand on the desire to enrage the council
@Ayama Her involvement in the murder would either be complete mishap and no relation to D'arkze, or we can scheme how they know each other
