Is it possible to see the knife itself?

Presently, no. However, Rebekka's last words to everyone before they left the ward come unbidden into your mind.

You're the first one into the astral plane. You watch Jocelin, Leo, and Muaziz astrally project themselves in short order. Dee Dee stands guard beside the dome ward, which everyone sees. François is the only one to see any other Kindred, but none for now besides those who are astrally projecting themselves from the parlor you're all starting at.

EDIT -- I should have also mentioned, the dome ward as just as opaque from the outside in psychic projection mode as it was from either side in physical form.

Then we try it the hard way... Jack thinks.

"If they wiped the blood from the knife, this is screwed." he says mostly to himself. To anyone else here. "The knife is currently in a lousy position to see from. It appears to be in a some emergency ward."

"Vitae is supposed to be a power. See if that helps.'

(ooc: If this were the WW rules i'd burn a willpower point to get at least one success.)

"Try reading auras," is the response you get.

Jack's foray hasn't cost any Fatigue as of yet, so there's still some available for him from the common pool if he wants to do as suggested. ((OOC -- It will trigger a Quick Contest between the Auspex roll and the Obfuscate roll.))

(Are there any auras there to read? The scene dexribed is basically furniture.)

There aren't any apparent at the moment, but Jack certainly would recall that the blood-spitter wasn't detectable by normal vision in prior encounters. While he is employing an Auspex effect to get second sight, presently that sight is otherwise not enhanced.

Correct. Similar caveats apply for the moment that everyone astrally projected has merely normal vision active right now.

Jocelin first tries to see if she can do a cool ghost like float through a wall

So the options are to either sit around and hope something significant eventually occurs or try and push things. If the blade is not in contact with the spit woman, and we are in an ICU, it's likely the blade had to be surgically separated from her. If she's still in the same room as it, that's likely to be very temporary. Someone may take the knife or it may be left in a drawer. Drawer looks too likely.

He will make the effort. Even if it can't be seen, it is presumably in direct contact with the blade and Jack is also in direct contact with the blade as well. Let's see if Transitivity applies.
