The Red Moon Tavern; a paltry little bandit's paradise on the edge of town. All sorts of renegades and social pariahs filtered in to the quaint little hub to escape their daily problems. Some had months worth of coin on them from being expert swindlers, and con men. Hekat was there to con the con masters. Dressed in a leather tunic and breeches, her slim form was apparent among the crowd of men. It wasn't common for women to frequent this area, and she bore her people's symbol-the silver wolf on the sash around her waist-so that made her an anomaly twice over. The Tavern women who served the mead, and rum didn't know what to make of her- but she could smell their curiosity.

Hekat was alluring in ways most people couldn't understand. And she owned that part of herself.

Wolves always intrigued humans.

No one here knew what she was though. Except Bleu.

Her littermate; and partner in crime.

Bleu was everything she wasn't; tall, with a dimpled smile, and pension for trouble Hekat always supported.

The woman was built like an amazon, and frequently boasted she could outfight one too; according to Bleu she was the original warrior woman and the Amazons decided to follow in her footsteps. It was endearing, and the enthusiasm she spoke with made people want to believe her. Even now Bleu was spinning some captivating tale about how she'd rolled the dice, and tested her luck against a whole assortment of soldiers with nothing but the sword on her back; and the luck of the gods on her side. And some poor, gullible serving girl was sitting in Bleu's lap, drinking the story in with wide eyes.

"You really tipped the scale of the whole battle by yourself?"

"I mean Hekat helped a little." Bleu smiled, dimples flashing dangerously. And Hekat chuckled because the fact that she was getting credit for even a small part of Bleu's notorious "victories" was amazing.

"She doesn't look like she could do a damn thing." A man with a deep baritone interjected. The words themselves were ripe with hostility, but that isn't what gave Hekat pause. He was eyeing her like she was prey, and it made her hackles rise. The wolf inside her rumbled at the challenge, and slowly she stood up from her chair. Mead in hand, she stepped passed Bleu who had gone quiet, eyes narrowed at the potential fight brewing. The serving girl was slowly deposited to the side, so she wouldn't get caught in the crossfires when things inevitably went to shit.

"Would you like to place a wager on that?" Hekat all but purred, a delighted grin quirking her features, because he had no idea what he was signing up for.

"I won't fight a woman half my size."

That was a typical male response that Hekat never bothered to acknowledge anymore. Crossing the distance between them, she watched him stiffen as she invaded his space. "I would take you and any other man in here, blindfolded and still win. But if you're afraid-call a champion for yourself. I'm sure a woman would be happy to finish what you started." It was a challenge, and an insult all at once.

Hekat was confident though.

She hadn't seen anyone in here that might be competition for her.
