Ali's eyes narrowed as the man spoke. Something about him had made a terrible impression on her. Then Theron slid down the rope and in that exact moment she knew he was an impostor. His body language was all wrong from the start. What kind of king lowers his head to a group of assassins? No... That man was arrogant, he underestimated this group, and there was definitely strength in him, but he was not a ruler or a even a noble. Which in Ali's eyes only made him much more dangerous.

When Theron directly confronted the man and he threw himself at the Instructor, Ali nearly fired at him. She stopped herself when hearing a whisper. "Not yet." That was Crys' command and she was bound to obey her. "What am I waiting for?" Ali whispered as if Crys could hear her. Then she sighed, and waited as ordered. Then, she saw the man's face, and her eyes widened. It was him. It was definitely him. Crys told her to wait, but now she definitely wanted to shoot the bastard dead.

------------------

Jake reacted fast when Theron brought the girl over. He grabbed the girl, and concealed her with him. "Don't make a sound." He whispered to her. His eyes got caught up in Crys for a moment. She had shivered when the man's face came out of the shadows. She hadn't reacted that way to any level of emotions in quite some time. He wondered what that meant exactly. One thing for sure... That was not the king of Newhaven.

-----------

Crys simply stood, leaving Theron to pressure the man... And then at the same time as Theron avoided the man's attack she felt struck with a sudden wave of emotions... And felt herself crushed between absolute shock and undeniable rage. So the reality hit, coming from the two members of her group who knew that man. Although they didn't know him as the same person. She smiled back at Theron, involuntarily, as he passed her. Knowingly or not the Instructor had managed to pull her away from being overwhelmed. Between Evin and Allison's feelings there were also her own... That man, who she had bowed to, had murdered her father.
Her actual reaction was unexpected in the least. She snickered as she put the facts together into one and verbalized them. "I'll be damned... If it isn't the killer we were so eagerly looking for!" She smiled. "Isn't it?"

A black arrow flew towards the man, and passed him. A simple confirmation to her words. Ali had recognized her attacker. The traitor. Her father's killer, and also Evin's long lost and more recently found friend. They were all the same man. She couldn't help but be impressed by that.

She also couldn't help but think that this was right in her face. The moment Ali mentioned the ring... She knew Perry was alive... Why didn't she come to the conclusion then? Could Evin's memories of his friend have clouded her judgment somehow?

Didn't matter anymore. Things were very much clear to her now. She kept where she was, but pulled both her Sai from their sheaths. This would get ugly fast as soon as the information sunk in to everyone. "My orders haven't changed." She said that out loud, for Ali to hear. She didn't want the girl to aimlessly attack in a rage, not that she didn't believe Ali knew better than that by now... It was simply a kind reminder.
