Zyliria nodded, not entirely sure why Christopher had suddenly appeared extremely nervous. She rose, picking up Caitlyn as she did so, and looked in the direction where Christopher had suddenly turned from, trying to see what -or who- had panicked the knight, but, in the crowds of Faela, saw no one that looked like a significant threat. Despite this, she was more than happy to get moving again. “What direction are we taking, do you remember?” she asked, looked around at the array of paths leading to and from the clearing they were currently in. She now understood the exact risk Christopher had taken in taking her on as his guide when they were travelling through the forest. Not knowing where to go, what direction she’d come with, surrounded by people who would likely not react kindly to seeing her true identity, her only real chance at survival was with Christopher.

The bandit leader stood inbetween the group and the street they had to go down. Christopher's heart was beating loudly. He tried calming himself, but couldn't slow his breath. "We need to go around him, "Christopher said, pointing out the man with the black handprint on his face.
He took his horse, and prayed to god the man didn't see him, and began making a wide semicircle around the man, trying to avoid detection. The turned to Zyliria, and put his fingers to his lips, even though everyone else was loud enough to drown out their words.

Zyliria looked again, in the direction Christopher had pointed and this time did notice the large, rough looking man with a blackened burn on his face in the shape of a handprint. She instantly guessed what had caused it, this must have been one of the bandits Caitlyn had fended off a few days earlier. How to get around him. “Are there streets that connect around behind him?” she muttered, thinking first of finding another way. In their present condition she doubted they’d do very well in a fight, what with her unable to use her powers and Caitlyn unconscious. They could always get him to see them and start a fight, to get the city guard to take him away, but, Zyliria realized, they would be far more likely to imprison or exile her than the burned man over there. “Any ideas?” she hissed over to Christopher..

"We should go around him," the knight said, turning to look at Zyliria, who was surprisingly strong enough to hold Caitlyn up. Looking back over to the black hand bandit. "there's only one other side road and it's down that road," he turned, and looked down the direction, when his face gets pale, at the sight of a bandit.

Zyliria sighed. “Of course,” she muttered, before leading the way towards the bandit, casually covering the unconscious girl with the cloak Christopher had given her. She approached him slowly, looking in every direction but directly at him, inching her way around him, hoping the man wouldn’t notice her. Up close, she couldn’t help but gaze at him, albeit for only a half second before looking down at the cobble stones, smoothed by generations of people trodding on them. It must have been several days since the attack on Hostar, but the man still smelled like ash. His face was in a slight frown, a dusty color, except for where the dragonfire had blackened it in an imprint of Caitlyn’s small hands. It wasn’t the ruddy hue of an ordinary burn, something about the magical attack had burned him in a different manner from conventional fire. She did not press her luck and attempt to get a closer look, skirting past him into the narrow alley behind him.

As Christopher watched walk directly past the bandit, his jaw dropped. He was terrified. How would he make it past without being noticed? He looked across the way, and glimpsed his daughter in Zyliria's arms. Getting past the bandit would be the riskiest thing he'd ever do. Hopefully the man wouldn't recognize him. He slowly started walking through the crowd, walking with the horse between him, and the black handprint bandit. Usually, when there was a bandit leader, their cronies would be nearby. He looked around, convinced that at any moment,he was going to be stabbed in the back. He had made it halfway there, when he felt a hand clasp down on his shoulder, and he froze, petrified.

“Christopher!” A booming voice echoed across the circle. A tall, portly man had walked out of one of the nearby stalls in the side way, and had placed his hand against his old friend’s shoulder, before wrapping one arm around the knight’s neck and leading him towards his booth. “It’s so good to see you, I’d heard of the destruction of Hostar and was afraid you’d been killed! How’s your family, is everyone all right? Come, I have some things I’m sure you’ll find interesting, take your mind off the-” he continued talking, crossing over the threshold and into his store.

Zyliria looked over at the jolly man, and couldn’t help but smile. After the drama of the day, meeting and escaping Lyfiria and Imbyria, sliding past the injured bandit, it was good to meet someone one so seemingly happy. She walked a few steps behind Christopher and the merchant, looking over her shoulder for bandits and anyone else who might have been watching them, before slipping through the doorway into the shop herself.

Christopher froze up petrified when he felt the large hand slap down on his shoulder. "T-Tobias!" He exclaimed, "you almost scared me witless!" His hand was on the hilt of his sword when the man they were looking for has snuck up behind him. It was getting to be a habit, putting his hand on his sword when he was startled. He spun around, and looked at the widened man, a bit startled by his size. Normally Tobias would look quite thin but now he seemed to have grown quite a lot.
"M-my family is dead. Everyone except my daughter. That's why I came to you today." Tobias was pretty much squishing himself between shelves so he could get through. He turned and gave him a sad look, "i'm very sorry to hear that. You had such a wonderful family.
"Have!" The knight snapped, "I still have Caitlyn." A Zyliria opened the door, it caused a bell to ring, and the cloak that Christopher had lent her caught on a stray nail sticking out of the doorframe., tearing it at the very least down off her head, revealing her ears, and putting a nice long rip in the coat. Tobias turned and looked over at Zyliria standing there with Caitlyn in her arms. laugh

Zyliria froze, standing the doorway. The room was silent for a moment, as the door swung shut behind them. She stood before the knight and the merchant, her true identity revealed to him. She looked at him, carefully, but was unable to read his reaction. He seemed merely surprised, either at the fact that she was an animus, that Christopher was travelling with an animus, or perhaps because she was carrying his unconscious child. Perhaps he could tell, as she had, that something about the girl was wrong, that she had a power no true human ever had before.

“Hi,” she said, meekly, stepping forward towards the two men. “I’m Zyliria,” she introduced, pausing for a moment before giving additional information. “I met Christopher a couple days ago, and led him to Faela.” She set down Caitlyn in one of the few chairs in the small clearing between Tobias’ goods, before turning to face him directly. “It’s good to meet you,” she offered.

Tobias' eyes widened as he stared at Zyliria in surprise. "Well well, isn't this a pleasant surprise." He chortled, and offered a friendly smile in return. It was a nice treat to have someone so unique as her in his shop. Her presence was especially intriguing, that someone like her would have made it this far into the city.
The chubby man walked around into the middle of the shop, and held out his hand to Zyliria politely. "It's a great honor to meet you." He smiled and looked down to Caitlyn, and said, "you do know she's sitting in the fourth throne of the Roteron empire, right?" He asked curiously.
Christopher knew exactly what Tobias was doing. A smile found its way to his face, and he watched the spectacle before him. Christopher leaned back against a counter, feeling totally relaxed around Tobias, knowing he was a good hearted man with honest intentions.

Zyliria eased up instantly, smiling at Tobias happily. She had been extremely nervous from the moment they’d arrived in the city, and it was good to see someone accept her for who she was so easily. She stretched out a hand, shaking Tobias’ hand. “It’s good to meet you to, sir,” she replied. After a few moments, she was able to rein in her smile, and looked down at the opulent, ancient throne she’d seated Caitlyn on. “Oh, I’m sorry,” she said, though she did not attempt moving Caitlyn from the Imperial seat. However, the thought that this man had somehow ended up in possession of such a relic did remind Zyliria of why they’d sought Tobias out, why they’d even come to this dangerous city in the first place. “Tobias,” said Zyliria, her smile fading into a thoughtful frown. “We came to you because we wanted to ask you about her, actually,” she said, gesturing down to the still unconscious Caitlyn. “She...she’s developed some..odd magical tendencies,” she attempted to explain. Truth be told, she wasn’t entirely sure how to explain Caitlyn’s newfound powers. “She touched a dragonscale,” she at last offered, hoping for some kind of reaction.

Tobias smirked, "I'm just pull in' your leg. That's just a chair. The real throne is buried under a pile of relics in the back somewhere." He loved teasing new shoppers with that. He swayed back and forth listening to Zyliria speaking of Caitlyn's powers. His eyes widened when she said that Caitlyn had developed magic tendencies. "Developing magic is not a common thing to happen. Usually it takes years and years of practice to master, or even obtain," that's when Zyliria mentioned Caitlyn touching the dragon scale. His jaw dropped and he began stumbling over his words. "B-but th-th-that's not p-possible! I-i mean, I-, this can't be true!" He turned to Christopher, and looked t him for support. Christopher nodded and said, "it's true, look at her hand.
The shopkeeper did so, and discovered the wyvern shaped mark on her hand. He howled in excitement, and ran to a bookshelf, scrambling to find the right book, "where is it, where is it, where is it! Hah! Here it is!" He brought out a book covered in dust. When he slammed the large book down on the counter, dust flew everywhere. "Here it is!" He said, flipping to an old page with the same mark drawn across the pages, along with what looked like chicken scratch. "What language is this?" Christopher asked, looking at the symbols.
"It's ancient goblin. See, this part says the one whom bears the mark will wield massive power, but this part right here says the one who bears the mark shall be consumed by the magic they hold." He looked over to kaitlyn, and said, "let's hope this isn't the case."

Zyliria stood by Caitlyn as the merchant scampered about his stores, grabbing a book from one of the many shelves that lines the narrow stall’s walls, and watched as the excited man fumbled with the pages, easily translating the ancient goblin tongue into English. She grew worried as Tobias translated, listening to the great power but also that the magic would consume the bearer and frowned. “But how can the magic both grant her massive power and consume? Surely those are mutually exclusive, no?” she asked, leaning slightly against the chair.

Caitlyn blearily opened her eyes in the chair, frowning as she looked around. The last thing she’d seen had been the forest floor. Now she was in a cramped store, an unfamiliar voice speaking. She frowned, trying to listen, her brain catching up to her consciousness in time to hear “Let’s hope that isn’t the case,” from the merchant. She frowned, trying to figure out what they were talking about, before realizing that the subject of their discussion must have been her, and her bizarre powers. “What…” she attempted to stand, but felt a wave of dizziness, and decided it would be best to remain seated. “What do you hope isn’t the case?” she asked.

Christopher went to his daughter, and knelt down by her taking her hand in his. "You don't have to worry Caitlyn, it might be a mistranslation, or perhaps a bit of fiction. I hardly believe the goblins were a very smart people, otherwise why aren't they around anymore? Also, i'm glad you're up sweetheart."
Tobias nodded slowly, agreeing with most of Christopher's explanation. He stepped forward, and smiled down at the young child, and said, "it's a pleasure to finally meet you miss Drake." He held out his hand politely to Christopher's daughter now. "I am Tobias. Your father has told me a lot about you." His conversation with Zyliria would have to be put on hold, for Caitlyn was awake.

Caitlyn shook her head blearily. “What...happened, how did I end up here?” She asked. Zyliria rested a hand on her shoulder, and Caitlyn stopped trying to move. She noticed the hand extended before her, and her followed the arm up to look into the friendly eyes of the man who’d been talking. She shook Tobias’ hand, and managed a weak smile. “Hi, I’m Caitlyn.” she replied. She looked over at her father, smiling slightly at him.

“You passed out after beating back Lyfiria. You used quite a bit of magic there,” Zyliria answered. Caitlyn nodded thoughtfully.

“Perhaps that what the author meant by ‘being consumed’,” said Caitlyn, hopefully. “That if I use too much magic, I faint,” she offered. She did not seriously think that that was what the goblin writer had meant, after all, the word ‘consumed’ sounded far, far worse than simply fainting after using a few fireballs.
