The beaten, depraved transport ship under Freddy McFredson's jurisdiction landed with success at the Devlani port town's docks. From it departed a mass of customers, each portraying slightly different emotions, though all negative. So much so the atmosphere even kept Sarha from her usual self. Well, that and having a freshly broken arm didn't help much either. It was a small dock, and the crowd evacuating the ship filled it up entirely. The Sarharians hurried their way out of the mass of humanity to the outskirts of the port town, which was no easy task with a horse drawn wagon involved.

It was time to formulate a strategy of continuation, and their head strong leader knew just how to handle it. "Jeff, what are we going to do now?" she asked her servant pleadingly. "We're maybe halfway there, and we still need more people to join us, I was hoping to find more on that ship."

"We have little option but to press on, Milady. Your wagon has enough room for all of us, and I can assure you will find more people as we go," said Geoffrey as he turned his attention to taking care of the horses, they would need to be in good condition for the journey to come.

Sarha accepted Jeff's words and mulled over what she had to work with so far. There was Rena and her big wyvern, that was a plus. Then there was that loud Ellis kid, man he was annoying, but he was also pretty good during that pirate attack as she remembered, he'd take some work but she'd let him stick around for now. Finally there was Stan, he seemed kind of useless, but at least he was nice, accepted. Still, she was missing a lot of roles here! Where was the big strong guy to lead the way? The cunning archer with the sharp tongue? The sneaky antihero to sabotage their enemies? There was work to be done.

During her mulling Jeff had finished the preparations for the wagon, they were ready to take off. All that was left was who sat where, and... Rena's big lizard.

"So, who wants to sit with Jeff up front?" the young leader inquired.

With a lush expanse, in both literal and figurative senses, spread out before him, it would be hard to say that Marsyyr had ever been happier. While generally happy to begin with, he was, as a man on a mission always is, only truly happiest when onto something. In this case, he very much was. His soft eyes watched carefully, legs folded, back slouched the slightest bit, from his perch on a rare hill, shaded by a bountiful spruce. While a very light breeze teased his senses, he gazed down upon the port, further into the town, where a ship had just docked. In the scramble to get off, he noted as he grew slightly more alert, there were several parties going in each direction; the task at hand was to study carefully the general behavior of each, then focus in on one which he would deem to have a higher level of educational potential.

The corners of his smile turned up even more as his study continued. It was not hard to settle on which subject he would observe. Drawing on hundreds of years of wisdom, though none would have been required in this case, he astutely selected a unique, ragtag group that emerged from the docks to load onto a wagon. To him, though his observations were done without the benefit of hearing the conversation, they appeared to be headlined by a very headstrong young woman, whose body language was clearly speaking to everyone around, and a retainer who was doing all he could to handle her.

I'm blessed to have been here today.

With this resolved in his mind, the dragon, clothed cleanly and expensively as always, rose effortlessly and gracefully to his feet, beginning his walk down the hill before the wagon started into motion. If he moved quickly, he could get there before it took off. Despite his ever-present laid-back nature, he was fairly confident in his ability to move at such a brisk pace. As he moved, he made a short, simple plan, if it could even be called that. It was more an idea he was eager to try.

Doing so, he circled around, then moved up alongside the wagon, careful to come from behind so as not to startle the retainer, who had been relegated to driving. The remainder of the crew had piled into the back, where Marsyyr was most curious to look. More than anything, he wanted to see for himself the lively spirit of the young woman he had spotted. It was humans like her, from what he could tell, that made the race so diverse. He had probably lived over four times as long as her, yet he sensed that she had more life inside of her than he could ever hope to. This he dismissed; he was still young, after all. This brought a smile from the dragon.

Without warning, he opened the back of the back of the wagon, stepping up, then in. He was prepared to transform his right arm, that hidden under his white cloth, should he need to, but he highly doubted it was necessary. He also doubted that he would go unnoticed as he entered the wagon, but from what he had observed of human action, if he was intercepted, he would be asked about his motives.

Quietly, the smile still on his face, he took a seat near the back and waited patiently, beginning to look around at his company.

Ellis stood in front of the wagon, looking up at the sky, a completely absent expression on his face.

Iris was seeing the same sky right now. She couldn't have gotten too far yet, at least not far enough that the sun would rise earlier for her. He wondered if she was going to be okay. She was pretty fr- fraji- tiny and easily hurt, and she'd had to stay in that bed for like three days. But she'd wanted to go on to Yillyspear alone, and Ellis wasn't one to deny anyone with that much fighting spirit.

Fighting spirit. Ellis clenched his fist. A determined expression came over his face, causing passersby to look at him weirdly. Of course she'd be fine! She was a woman of Arad'uun, wasn't she?! And he'd given her his good luck charm, the one his sister'd given to him when he'd first set out, the one he knew had kept him alive all these months. She couldn't fail!

She'd make her way. Just like he had. Yeah. Yeah! A grin spread across his face. She'd do him proud, he just knew it!

Ellis's odd, quasi-paternal pride was interrupted by the voice of Sarha. Ellis scowled. What an annoying girl, so loud. And useless too. Why couldn't she be more like Iris? But if there was one thing he couldn't deny, she attracted a lot of fighting. And The Epic of Ellis could always use some more stanzas.

He climbed into the wagon and dropped carelessly onto a seat near the back, without even looking first. This proved somewhat disastrous.

Ellis shot up and toppled backwards, away from the strange redhaired guy whose lap he'd just sat on. His hand leapt to his weapon without a moment's thought. "Wh-who th'hell are you?!"

"And then we go around over and over and over again..."

...Oh alright, that was enough for now. The first few times she did it was kinda fun, but twirling herself all the way out of town was just going to leave her with a headache. Ciel sighed at that thought, and continued on her way the streets albeit in a slightly awkward pace. A rush of recent arrivals filled out the otherwise quiet avenues, though the lot of them were really too busy fussing over themselves to notice her antics. People were so self-absorbed that way.

Ciel might have been just a little frustrated that day. She thought that heading up north was going to be fantastic idea , in way that she was finally breaking free from the monotony of Alacia's mountains. She really even didn't realize until she got there that Devlan was almost the same thing and more. More mountains, more wyverns, and a bunch of really depressed looking people. Oh there was a coast, that was something new at least. She had thought once of boarding a ship herself to somewhere different, like Val Mae, though there was no way she'd be that lucky in a small port town like this. Also, Val Mae was where Let came from... no, now wasn't the good time to go there.

But anyway, back to the excitement issue... was she really asking for so much? Ciel didn't expect every moment of her life to be read like the stories in her novels, she just wished that the adventures had much better pacing than this. But in that cast, she'd probably be better off striking out for her own amusement. Any hook, any job... anything out of the ordinary was perfectly fair game for Ciel Bordelon!

So logically, she started with that wagon outside of town.

Not only did it seem to be the best way out of this dreary place, but it was also filled with a colorful bunch of characters. Not that she was a good judge of character, of course, but details like that didn't matter in the face of some decent company. She wondered where this one was headed off to, though she realized that it didn't matter too much. There was no way this thing was headed off to a anywhere duller than this town.

Right?

"'lo, anyone in charge here?" Ciel approached the group, a half-salute to greet to them all. "I'm looking for a way out of town, you guys have some room?"

Sarha might as well have not even bothered asking who was going to join Jeff up by the horses, as Leikr's massive frame had already pulled itself up there as far as possible. It was nothing against the others, most of whom were halfway decent when their mouths were shut and they were killing people, but the constant jabbering was starting to give him another headache. He'd been getting those a lot lately. It was mostly the fault of those two brats, Ellis and...red-haired...kid...who just kept screaming and fighting with each other. It would have been different if they'd been really fighting, like with axes, but that red kid just kept pulling on Ellis' hair or trying to hug him and gay crap like that, which made Ellis scream like a woman and try to punch him. He'd probably do more damage if he didn't hit like a woman, too.

Leikr heaved himself over the bar of wood separating the front and back of the wagon with a grunt, leaning his back against the side of the wagon precariously so that Jeff was in one side of his line of vision and Sarha, Rena and the other runts were in the other side. A yawn threated to tear his mouth open and he tried to fight it, but eventually it beat him and a dull roar came from his lips, spooking one of the horses and prompting Fenrir, walking alongside the wagon out of some crazy wolf logic reasoning, to howl in response.

Still finishing his yawn, Leikr glanced back at the huddled group of Sarharians to see if they'd done anything vaguely interesting, such as Ellis and red-kid fighting over air or Sarha wasting time with another inspirational speech. Of course they weren't being entertaining for once, though Ellis was at least up and starting to scream again. Always good for something. Though, he didn't seem to be yelling at red-kid this time, but rather...

Leikr's jaw tightened into a fierce clench as he caught sight of the red-haired man sitting so calmly amid the others in the back of the wagon. He didn't know why - it was probably because this was yet another person with red hair whose name he didn't know - , but something about the man set him ill at ease. His instincts were screaming at him to get up and tackle the man out of the wagon and away from the tinier, clearly weaker members of the Squad, but his mind, for once with a loud enough voice to be heard, reminded him that he had no weapons with which to carve the man's heart out.

Not good.

"...Hey, Jeff," he growled lowly, tapping the other man's leg with a single digit and waiting, ignoring the high-pitched voice that called for attention from somewhere outside the wagon's depths. Jeff turned around and followed Leikr's pointed finger until he too saw the mysterious new arrival, at whom his brow furrowed a small bit, "...Whos'tha' guy 'n why is he 'n here?"

Haldor was used to humans. True, he didn't like them as a rule, and without Serenity's chastising influence would quite cheerfully maim or kill the vast majority of them should they touch him, threaten his mistress, or be near him when he was in a bad mood. But he was still comfortable with their presence. He had been around them all his life, and so the approach of one generally only warranted a token growl in response to their existence in the same general area of his mistress.

This man was not a human. Haldor had never encountered anything with quite that scent before, but he didn't like it, whatever it was. As the red-haired man passed by and boarded the back of the wagon without warning, the massive, dark-scaled wyvern drew back slightly, as though shielding the small, flowery haired girl beside him. A barely audible hiss slid from his throat. Serenity was likely the only one to hear it.

"Huh? Somethin' wrong?" she asked, patting his side. She had been facing in the other direction when Marsyyr had made his way into the wagon, and as such didn't have any incite as to her mount's sudden change in mood. He had been cooped up in that ship for ages. Hal should be out stretching his wings, not sicking around here hissing at nothing.

"Go on!" she said, giving him a little shove. With something akin to a sigh, Haldor took off. He wouldn't go too far from her; he'd probably just follow the wagon from above. She had the whistle if she needed to call him down, anyway. With the absence of the large, flying lazard to block her vision, Rena's view of the pink-haired newcomer was suddenly unobstructed.

"Oh, hi!" Rena said, giving the strange girl a smile. Aggravatingly enough, as it had done so often since the fight with the pirates, the simple act of smiling caused a jolt of pain to shoot across her face, originating from the vivid, barely healed scar arcing down her face. Apparently it would get better when it had more time to heal. Rena hoped that was true. "Uh, yeah, hi," she tried again, with a smaller smile than what she was accustomed to giving. "I'm Rena. That's short for Serenity. Or Miss Duval, I guess, but no reason to go 'n get formal, right?" She remembered the actual question. "Oh, uh... Sarha's in charge," she said, pointing to the girl with the broken arm. "Dunno if we have any room. Do we have any room, boss?" This last part was called out in Sarha's direction as opposed to Ciel's.

Mairenn rode towards the port town, with Gradaigh trotting along at a comfortable pace. As it was, she had never seen the ocean before, and it looked vast and beautiful. It was strange to her to see such a vast expanse of water, especially since her home in the forests of Arad'uun was far from its coast. She recalled Nagarath as she looked at the roving waves, since it resembled a blue, living desert.

It started to smell pretty funky, too. She could smell the sea on the wind.

She had her horse slow down a bit as she neared the edge of town. The ranger saw some people moving around a wagon just outside of town. She wondered whether it was a mercenary company or just a traveling group of merchants or something. She had just had a splendid little adventure with two of her friends, and had been inspired to journey around and hone her skills further. After all, she hadn't forgotten what had happened in Levittus. She wanted to bring those monsters to justice, and being a more effective fighter would be a step in the right direction. So looking for a group of adventurers was a natural thing todo to accomplish that goal.

The ranger approached the wagon cautiously - she'd hate to bump into the wrong crowd by simply being up-front and saying "Hey, need an extra person for protection? I have arrows". No, she'd scout out what was going on first and make a decision later. Of course, by the time she had arrived in the general area, there wasn't nearly as much movement as she saw before. There was just somebody yelling something (it sounded like some kid), and a wyvern flew off. Perhaps it escaped or was let loose by its owner? She didn't know the reason behind it.

Mairenn hadn't seen one fly off alone so high before, and wanted a better look. Against her normally better judgement, the ranger attempted to stand up while on Gradaigh's back. The already irate horse wouldn't have any of it, however, and it neighed in annoyance and easily bucked the ranger off. He then ran off (As he usually did. You'd think she'd learn her lesson by now), leaving Mairenn there, lying on her back with nothing but Soulsinger and her lance. Sitting up, the ranger called out angrily;

"Goddamnit! I'm so gonna kill that horse and make sure he goes to hell!"

"Guwa... the air feels so nice here." Stan sighed as he took one last (for now) deep breath of the sea breeze. His unknown to him other self was sleeping at the moment since the last spectacle on that ship. Nothing much, just fighting pirates can wear out a guy. Stan was moreover curious about his new surroundings, though the docks were not all that much different from the docks he was used to seeing. But this time, Stan gets to experience something new, a ride on one of those wagons like in the storybooks!

It was... alot fancier looking than the ones that he was used to stowing away in. So therefore it should be like a new experience right? Either way, adventuring with the Sarha lady was pretty fun, so Stan decided to hang out with her a little longer. Maybe she knows some good games to play in a wagon!

Anyways, Stan turned towards the carriage and subsequently perked up when he saw his newest friend get in. The redhead thief dashed towards the wagon and promptly dove into the wagon, diving right next to his Stan-proclaimed 'Best Buddy' (after 'playing together' most of the 'playing' consisting of some of Ellis' manly training and whatnot. After crashing atop the helmeted boy, Stan got up and scooted himself over, landing him in between Ellis and... apparently someone else.

He had red hair too!

Stan only grinned up at the new person and waved, "Hi my name is Stan, what's yours?"

Truthfully, the future was so bright to Marsyyr. Day by day he approached the enlightenment he sought; he could feel it, expanding, brimming with hope and potential. It was knowledge. It was an understanding.

It was an understanding that involved humans.

And it was with a light smile that he, after taking his place, or what may as well have been so, within the wagon, bore witness to the events that unfolded. He had not been wrong in picking this group of humans, for they appeared to be more of an exercise in uniqueness than he could have imagined. The dragon had much to learn from them. It was time to begin.

As he watched and waited, he was unexpectedly greeted by the momentary sensation of a small body in his lap. When he managed to turn his gaze to look at what was before him, it had moved with aberrant speed up and away, and quite noisily. As it turned out, Mars found himself looking at a young boy, adorned with red hair just as the dragon was, bearing a crazed and exasperated look after falling backwards. The slender child was decorated with many accessories over all parts of his body. After a moment's recovery, he let his hand stray to his weapon, his state of panic clouding his mental processing. Mars focused ever so slightly on the boy's hand, but he otherwise remained relaxed, making no movement in response to the threat.

"Wh-who th'hell are you?!"

Mars' passive eyes and gentle face altered themselves only the slightest bit, barely noticeable, as he began to respond.

...Oh?

Before he had gotten such a chance, a second member of the group tumbled into the wagon in a tizzy, falling over the first boy as they both combined in creating quite the commotion. This one was also very young, even for a human, and also bore red hair.

"Hi, my name is Stan. What's yours?"

Mars looked with measured gazes at one, then the other, following with a reassuring look.

"Please, call me Mars. Well met, Stan. And you as well," he looked to Ellis, "young man."

As he was doing this, he looked up for but a moment, long enough to notice a third, then a fourth, human directing his attention Mars' way. He was much larger than the others, with a fiercer scowl fresh on his face. Mars glanced at him, this time expressionless, his eyes calm and appearing out of focus, then looked down to his company in nearer proximity again. He was already enjoying the fruits of his great choice, but something about the man up front specifically and heavily drew his interest.

Geoffrey was finished readying the horses and took his seat at the front of the wagon, testing the reigns and getting himself comfortable for the long, bum hurting ride to come. All was well until the statured Leikr took seat next to him, more than filling what extra room was available. This made him a few degrees nervous, but he wouldn't show it. That would be unbecoming of a well trained butler.

When Leikr's guttural voice emitted his question, Geoffrey had to turn around himself to see what this new development was about. He was right, there was an unknown body situated in the wagon, mingling with Milady's employees. He wasn't doing anything violent, so the butler would simply stay on stand by.

"I haven't the foggiest, Master Leikr," he said as he turned his attention back to the task at hand, making sure the wagon would endure the journey.

---

People were falling into place and Sarha found it a good chance to head to the wagon, but when she heard a loud exclamation from Ellis she changed her mind, whatever was going on over there, she'd rather not have to get involved until it was over.

Besides, it seems like someone was headed towards them, another girl that looked about her own age. With colors like that it would have been weird if she had somehow missed her approaching. Really, really colorful, she liked this new person already.

When time came for the approacher to ask her question, though, Rena managed to bud in before Sarha had a chance to say anything! Sarha shut her out for the most part until a question was thrown her way, "Do we have any room, boss?"

"Uh, right, Of course we have room, the Sarharians don't turn down potential! If you'd like, I can get Jeff over here to set up a payment deal right away. I'm Sarha by the way, Sarha Selne, what's your name?" She shot forward her good arm for a shake, completely oblivious to the notion that this pink haired girl could possibly be dangerous.

Ciel's greeting was quickly returned by a few people, first of all by that young girl who introduced herself as Rena. She was the one who had that wyvern just earlier, so she was most likely be a fun person to hang around with. Pity about that scar, but she still looked pretty regardless. Rena soon threw Ciel's question to the one actually in charge, a blonde-haired girl by the name of Sarha. She seemed pretty beaten up herself with that arm of hers... these folks must be up to some really dangerous work or something.

To be honest, the mage was quite fascinated with her new company already.

"I'm Ciel! Ciel Bordelon, if you wanna be stuffy about it." Ciel replied in her usual light-hearted manner, as she took Sarha's hand in a quick shake. "Maybe we can go and greet everyone else later! By the way, where are you all..."

...

"...Aaaaaahhhhhh!" The mage's eyes were suddenly alight, in favor of something else that she caught sight of in the background. She broke off the handshake, and almost immediately after made for what seemed to be a lunge right at the large shaggy thing next to the wagon. "You guys have a dog! I love dogs!" Ciel chimed out loud, as she nearly tackled the wolf as she approached. She wasted no time as she gently started to rub the grey wolf by its nozzle and back. "She's soo cute... what's her name?"

She really wasn't paying attention to the wolf's reaction, though it was probably no doubt bemused. At least it didn't decide to bite her hand off.

What the hell?

Disbelief wasn't even close enough to describe how Leikr felt after hearing Jeff respond with what had to be the most pathetic response from someone who sniped a pirate captain for the finishing blow ever. Seriously, if this was what Jeff consisted of, filing paperwork and being the simpering voice of reason ass-slave to Sarha with only brief, fleeting moments of being a real man, then Leikr was going to need himself someone else to drink with. Not that he had much to choose from, of course; between a loudmouth idiot, a half-brain child, a weakling, a short-tempered punk and Rena, who just didn't seem the drinking type, Jeff the wonder-secretary was probably the best he had.

Either that or Fenrir, who was at least a remorseless, bloodthirsty monster.

Still not bothering to hide the expression of disbelieving disappointment from Jeff, who wasn't even looking anymore, the shrimp, Leikr shot his glare back at the red-haired man, who had both of the idiot brats gathered around him like cattle. Unsurprising, really. Sarha was gone, too, outside the wagon talking to someone who looked really, really tiny. Just like everyone else around him. To his further irritation, the threating red-haired man actually met his eyes, eyes blank and meek and so enfuriatingly -not- challenging him at all before turning his gaze back to the brats.

Leikr, meanwhile, was almost beside himself in frustrated rage. First Jeff turns out to be a completely spineless disappointment, then the next possibly challenging person to show up turns out to be some meek little mouse! Was every single person he was going to run into in this strange outside place going to be so annoying? At least Rena had been able to fight like a proper warrior from atop her flying dragon. Still, she was just one tiny little exception to everything else he'd seen. The Chief was probably laughing right now, knowing full well how sad the rest of the world was when he sent Leikr out into it. Bastard.

A sudden scream broke Leikr from his fuming thoughts, enough to make him blink and hope that it was Sarha or Rena or someone else with a girly scream like Ellis being attacked. Probably not the best thoughts to have, but he was getting bored and frustrated inside a very small area, which was never good. Someone needed to be punched in the face...or spine...or just killed. Anything would do. Sadly, the scream came from the side of the wagon that he knew Fenrir was on. Someone was babbling about a doggy, too, whatever that was. Great. He probably should go make sure that Fenrir wasn't tearing up someone important like Sarha. It wouldn't be good if his boss died. Couldn't do anything for him then.

Heaving another sigh of irritation as well as his own massive frame up and out of the wagon, Jeff having stopped his work momentarily at the sound of the very close-by scream, Leikr shoved his thumbs beneath his belt and walked over to the wagon's side. He was expecting to see a mess of blood and organs overshadowed by intense screaming as Fenrir tore into whatever idiot had gotten too close. Really, the lack of screams of terror or pain should have been indications that such was not the case, but Leikr was hopeful. Some blood would have really made his day go better. Still, coming around the side and seeing that dope of an idiot wolf, Fenrir, sitting on his ass with what had to be the wolf equivalent of a grin on his face while some weird-haired girl pet him was nearly the last straw.

This day was horrible and nothing could fix it.

"...Whit're'ya doin'," Leikr managed to get out alongside a sigh, his target between the girl and Fenrir not specified. His face was blank despite the frustrated monster raging inside his mind, something that was never a good sign during times of peace. He'd broken arms with other arms during those kinds of times before.

"Stan, didn't your parents ever tell ya not t'talk t'strangers?" Ellis snapped. He had always had an incurable temper, and once he got going it was nigh-impossible to stop. "An'damn right I'm a man! But don't underestimate me just 'cause I'm young, got it?! Anyways, what kinda guy just climbs into someone else's wagon b'fore sayin' hel-"

He stopped.

Ellis had met more mamkutes than most people, in a relatively short span of time. There had been something different about all of them, some subtle air Ellis couldn't quite get into words or put his finger on. Flatio, Amaranth, now this Mars guy. And it had nothing to do with magical auras or anything like that. Indeed, one of Ellis's earliest memories was of a young, wavy-haired girl placing his hand on a magic book, then walking away with an exasperated sigh after a few minutes. No, he just kind of... knew.

Ellis dropped his hand from his weapon. "I guess you're all kinda weird, huh? Ellis, son a'Zerk, Nineveh of Arad'uun, wielder of Piratesbane, Banditcleave, and Revolution, doer of- listen, just don't make a habit a'this, all right? People don't like t'be sca- surprised!" He exited the wagon.

"Hey, pigtails!" he called. "We've got a dragon guy ridin' with us now, kick 'im out if y'don't like it! An-" He spotted a blue-haired girl sitting on the ground, looking particularly irate. Trenor? There were all kinds of familiar sights today. "Hold th'wagon I'll be right back!"

He ran over to the blue-haired woman's side and gave her a hand. People of Arad'uun always helped each other, no matter where they were! Never mind that Ellis would never have done the same if, say, Erevor or Leon had fallen down. "You alright there?" he asked. "Trenor, right? I'm Nineveh!" He frowned, vaguely remembering that the Trenors were Rangers. "Say, shouldn't y'have a horse?"

The ranger now remembered how close she was to the wagon and that shouting would definitely bring the attention she was trying to avoid. Shit. Even now there was someone running to her from... wait, just some half pint kid? Okay, so Mairenn wasn't exactly the shining example of tallness herself, but the horned helmet did seem to add to his height a bit more than it needed to. So they probably weren't all that bad if they had him along.

Besides, this kid had the air of someone from Arad'uun, indicated when he reached out to help her up. This was only confirmed in what he said, as only someone from Arad'uun could have accurately guessed at her heritage; "You alright there? Trenor, right? I'm Nineveh!" She had heard tales of the Niveneh clan before, both good and bad. It was said that they didn't respect the land as they should. Mairenn would be the judge of that. She said a kind "thank you" as she was pulled up.

"Say, shouldn't y'have a horse?" he asked curiously, like he was expecting one to be there. Well, she gave him some credit - she normally would have been riding Gradaigh. Perhaps she should have calmed down a bit before she replied;

"What, my horse? That jackass managed to buck me off and run away. Again. A-freakin'-gain" (This totally ignored the fact it was her own fault). She sighed in an exasperated manner before continuing; "He had all my goddamn stuff, too. Food, money... oh hell, everything! Argh! I'm lucky I kept my weapons on me, or else I'd be completely screwed."

Mairenn took a deep breath (a few, actually), this time the anger leaving her after venting a bit. Now she said in her normal, calm demeanor; "Otherwise, I'm okay. I guess you didn't quite deserve to hear that. Umm..." She looked around a bit, saying "I'm not sure you'd be the one to have a say in it, but I'll ask anyway. Outburst aside, I was actually hoping to travel with your group in the wagon. Considering I no longer have a mount, I don't think that's too unreasonable. I'm Mairenn, by the way. You got the Trenor part right, Niveneh."

A little bit of joint postage with Vel for Leikr's lines and stuff.


The girl was interested, sweet! Well, interested until she squalled and charged and Fenrir, tackling him in a lavish embrace. Not. Good. She could only hope Leikr wouldn't take notice. It was, admittedly, quite brave of her to do such a thing, this new girl had guts.

As she chased after her in a preventative attempt at Leikr finding out she heard Ellis' voice address her. Just the sound of his voice was enough to make a strange fit of anger rise up from within, such that she didn't actually comprehend the words he was saying. She tossed his words aside as some nonsense about what being a man was all about, or something. There were more pressing matters at hand.

She turned her attention back to Fenrir and Ciel, but it was too late. Leikr was getting out of the seat at the front of the wagon and heading their way, slowly, and that meant dangerously. Sarha broke into a sweat and felt some blood drain from her face, Leikr was amazing, but he wasn't very good with new people.

When he spoke the voice was suspiciously calm, "...Whit're'ya doin'."

Sarha found it imperative to speak up for the girl before she said anything wrong. "H-h-hey Leikr, d-don't worry about it. She's new here and interested in joining us. She's just uh, being friendly with Fenrir is all, and he doesn't seem to mind it, right? Right?" Why was her voice wavering?

Great...Now Sarha was involved. All he wanted was to find out what Fenrir thought he was doing, maybe even see if he could persuade this girl hugging the mutt to keep it down. That was all that he really wante-...Well, no, that wasn't what he really wanted. That would have to be for a fight to get started, maybe with some random idiots outside of the group out to steal food or, if he was really desperate, and he was, some idiots from within the group. It wasn't good for the group, but neither was him breaking out in a furied rage and getting a fight that way.

"..." Silently, he shifted his gaze over to Sarha, raising a single brow in question and waiting for her to explain what she thought she was doing. The girl and Fenrir were momentarily forgotten, a fact that the wolf took advantage of by pressing his nose against Ciel's shoulder for more attention.

Leikr said nothing, bad sign number one. Then he just looked at her instead, expectantly, danger sign number two. "Um..." Think think think think think!

Aha.

"Well uh what I mean is, I think Ellis was saying some mean things about you a few seconds ago! Something about you not being a real man cause you uh, use lances and not axes, something like that." Heck, far as she knew that really was what Ellis was yelling about earlier, no skin off her back if she was wrong.

"...Tch, tha'little whelp. Runnin' his mouth agin?!" Scowling ferociously at the idea of that red-headed little pipsqueak trying to make himself feel better by insulting him. Like the weakling was in any spot to be making those kinds of insults! That deserved a good 'talking to,' as that bastard Chief had put it so many times before a beatdown on someone stupid. Maybe this would finally get some sense in the little idiot's head.

"Bah, thanks, Sarha. I'll go'n teach tha'little fool ta-..." Pausing for a moment, silence reigned over the area for a few moments before he turned back around and stared down at Sarha, a stony expression on his face. "..."

"Um, yes?" So close! She was on the verge of tears with the look Leikr was giving her.

Gah...was she tearing up? She was. What the hell was up with her now? Eh, whatever. If she was going to be acting all meek and submissive like some pleasure slave, he wasn't going to complain. At least she'd probably be quieter than normal.

"...Nothin'. Dun matter, 'nyway." He scoffed, shooting Fenrir a knowing look that more or less told him to keep an eye out for prey before stalking off to find Ellis and give him a good beating.

And he was off, Sarha just about collapsed with relief but kept herself standing, and instead just exhaled every ounce of breath she had in her lungs. "Sorry about that Ciel, he uh, doesn't like it when people interact with his wolf there, but I think the wolf likes you well enough." It was true, the wolf was... nuzzling her, Sarha had no idea Fenrir was actually that friendly.
