          It could be said that Aries was a man of action, not of speaking. He listened to the king's speech, and then the rulers bicker back and forth as he screwed on the lid to his container of lip balm. The ruler himself knew that the words in his mouth would never be as quick as the blade in his hand; he was feeling his inexperience now in the growing ache behind his brow.

          The goat-creature continued to breath heavily behind him, its cloven hooves pawing at the ground every few seconds. 'Oh please,' Aries rolled his eyes while rubbing at his temples. '-just die already.' His resolve to kill the creature solidified as the meeting stretched on.

          Aries sipped at a glass of wine as Dante lashed out at the pink-haired Pisces woman.

          "For the sake of our kingdoms, I will work with you Aries." A voice came across the table. Kaveh of Libra. Aries slowly lifted his gaze to meet the man squarely. "Though I do not fully understand the spell..." At that, Aries' eyes drifted to the tattered scrap of scroll on the table before him.

          He didn't reply, but he did squint at the thing. Why was it so dirty? Was that a bloodstain on the side? Did they think phrasing the instructions in such archaic language would make them sound more impressive?

          It was then that a flicker of Jamarreon's conversation with Aery caught Dragan's attention.

          He smirked, lips curling against the rim of his cup at the promise to continue their fighting. Excellent. His appreciation for the Taurus man flared; it was good that the two of them had a mutual understanding on the nature of their relationship. Even if the war at large ended, Aries would sooner die than give up the thrill of combat.

          Oh, yes. He has yet to respond to Kaveh's inquiry.

          Aries set his wine goblet down with a clunk, returning his attention to the well-dressed man.
          "I like you, Kaveh," he began. And it was true. The ruler of Libra was one of the two rulers who had reached out to Aries and attempted to converse with him. "I will grant this service to you, as a token of my goodwill. Neither of us require the assistance of an arcane ritual to be strong, but perhaps we can make it interesting nevertheless."

          As Aries spoke, the man toyed with the armguard at his wrist. The handle of a silver throwing knife flicked out with a twitch of his wrist. Beautiful craftsmanship. Aries hummed as he glanced over his shoulder and flung the blade at the guardian standing behind him. Despite his casual attitude, the knife shot out with deadly precision straight towards the jugular vein throbbing in the fawn's throat.
