History:
Genti was born to a very large family of strong hunters. But despite that she was sold off by her father into slavery for a great deal of money. The reason for this is that her parents had lost all of their money when they lost the pack they were in and the store they had owned. Falling quickly into dept and finding themselves and their children scrounging around for even something to eat in little over a year. Once her father had made the decision that this was going to be done, there was nothing anyone could do to stop it. So despite anything she had hopped for herself she has found that she is now to be a slave for someone she doesn't even know and most likely will not like after just being dragged from her home. And she has grown to strongly hate her father and all those around her because of all that has gone on in her life in this very short time.
Additional:
She has not been trained of anything and is fully new to slavery all together.

So begins...

After a month of sleepless nights and money that would exchange hands endlessly, the life of Genti Stone was now in the hand of men willing to sell her for a different purpose. She had been locked within cage after cage and carried along dusty roads from one destination to another several lands away.
Her final destination however was locked when the men thought to bring her to Raven Loft, seeing mount Haven grow in the distance was enough to make an ominous impact on even the drivers of the carriage themselves. Genti was left to sit in the back with nothing but to confines of her small wooden box to keep her warm and the rags she was wrapped in to contain her modesty. However if it were not for the enchanted irons wrapped around her wrist she would have taken the opportunity her heritage affords her to escape.

Within several minutes of driving the horses on the men on the carriage stop with a sudden thump in the wheels of its wooden frame.

The guards of Raven Loft step forward and check their manifest, which causes some rousing conversation between the drivers. Even though that the girl was paid for and sold into their hands it was not checked with them that she would arrive. With fervor some of the guards complain and abject that the men should be turned around for the long trek back to civilization. Raven Loft has always been some distance from any location of populace but to do so would mean to tempt natures wrath to be like it has for the last several days.
Were it not for Roldan stepping forward and inspecting the box she would be left to their mercy. He can see that she has seen some abuse in the last few days and even though it was not practically physical, the lack of proper food and poor conditions has made her a rather pitiful sight.

Roldan was sure that she would not survive the way back and with keeping his eyes locked on hers, he could see that she still burned inside from the days gone past. He turned and order his guards to remove her box and take her from the care of the men on the carriage. Raven Loft's rules on this were clear, mistreatment of a slave on the grounds was prohibited and seeing as she was now on the property grounds her care fell to them.
He barked his orders to have her brought inside out of the cold air and began to stare the drivers down."Take this.. and you should be glad to get this much." He tosses out a small pack of silver pieces and lays it on the stand of the carriage. When the furthest man begins to protest that they paid more then he could think for her Roldan was is quick to show them his hand resting on the hilt of his sword. With that the men turn their horses about and make a quick exit from the grounds.

When he returns inside the Genti's box was being pried open and two others removed her from the container and while she did resist in some manner, her health was not in the best of states that its been.

He leans down and checks her over being as gentle with her as he can.."Lets get her fixed up.. she needs food and something warmer to wear and go inform the master. We have a new addition to the stock.." Despite his cold words towards the young girl, he did have the thought of her best needs in mind.

Kenner

While Kenner stands before the three masters in the dinning room he see's one of the woman from before return. It was Peng'E again and she was in somewhat of a hurry which was evident in the haste in her step. She came to her masters ear and spoke lightly as she informed him of what happened down stairs.
She spoke cleanly and clearly, but light enough to keep the information from all but Syntira's draconian ears.

He gave a slightly distasteful look of discomfort with each passing word and all he can hear is a term of internment that quickly needs to be repaid to someone. He gives Peng'E a slight pat on the side to interrupt her and slides his chair back under the edge of the table.
"Well.. it seems the day keeps getting better." He looks at Peng'E and leans into her ear with one clear whisper before looking back. "I must apologize but an issue has arisen down stairs.. I leave you all in her capable hands for the moment. When everyone is done, she will take you to the atrium for viewing of the new additions." With that Kenner made a bow and then a slightly hasted retreat from the room. It was easy to see that there was a part of him fuming under the collar even before he stepped out and now it was more evident then before as he jumped the banister.
That fall was short and he quickly regained his footing and moved down towards the main hall, only to see that Roldan had moved the young slave girl Genti into the main hall and two of the house maids had come to redress her in something more suitable.

He looked her over and turned his attention towards Roldan.."What of the men who brought her?.. are they waiting to get paid for such an intrusion." He spoke with a lightly burning haze in the back of his eyes.. "No.." Roldan answered "I paid them a small sum of silver and.. forced them on their way."

kenner gave a blank stare with a slight exaggeration to his expression.."Keep her here and get her fed as well.. do not remove the cuffs yet however." He turns on his heel and heads back up the stairs rather quickly "Because I feel we will be seeing them again.."

The march back up the stairs towards his quarters was fast and full of reason as he had a very plane method of doing things. The men who brought Genti to his walls were in blatant disregard of his house and required a lesson in etiquette. Once inside his room he made use of the privacy such a place affords, the back of his room had a small library in place but in there at the moment books were not his concern.
He stepped in the middle of the floor where a glyph sat on the floor, next to the glyph sat a table with a small crystal on a stand that he quickly took in hand and squeezed. The crystal began to glow faintly and pulse as he concentrated on one name that could fix his current dilemma.

"Daud.. I must speak with William.. it is a matter of some urgency."

* * * *

Peeshka looked at Bloodsong as he chowed away on his meal and she pulled her hand back to her sides after the bowl was taken. She was glad that he was more reasonable then most despite his appearance, which made her look back at Nix and remember the fact that she would be more of a hassle then she's worth.

She takes another look at the others in the cells and speak towards the entire group.. ~I suggest you all eat up.. we're all going outside pretty soon and that means your all going to need your strength.~
She stepped back outside of Bloodsongs cell passing through the bars as she did before and moved to lean on the far wall as if she were waiting for something to happen.

Kenner

Kenner only had to wait for several moments after Daud received his words, the man that was once a slave in his care was looking as though he has been keeping himself busy. Either with his own endeavors or otherwise, he was rather persistent in that which he chose to follow and partake on.
Through the perception of the small stone the whole of reality disappeared to make the world seem narrow and it was in this small spot light of existence that he awaited the voice that came from the other side.

"Hey there Kenner, been too long. Daud tells me you got a little business for Ol' Mad Dog. That right?"

The friendly voice put a slight smile on Kenner's face as he could recall the first days that he could really count on someone outside of the walls of Raven Loft. At least someone who wasn't paid with fraudulent sums of money and their tongue wasn't held by other unfortunate measures. Kenner grit his teeth for a moment as he thought of what to say as the stress of the day had already started to get to him and it could be heard in his voice.

"Apologies for skipping the refreshing dialog William.. but I have a certain thing needing caking care of and you are one I know who can get results.." Kenner was unconsiously rolling the orb in his palm and looked back at his door "There are two men heading towards Dunwall, they are taking the main road and its two drivers in the carriage with an empty cage in the back. They have a small satchel of silver on them from Raven Loft and that shall half your compensation for now. I want those men alive when they get here.. what shape their in however is up to you."

He gave the ball another small roll before raising it higher.."Now if you exscuse me I have a new addition in my house that needs care.. but still I emphasize alive. We can catch up when you get here."
Kenner puts the crystal orb back down on the small table which resounds with a knock as he walks off.

He moves fast for his apparent pace and keeps his feet as steady as a man damned, his walk back down stairs towards the main hall is an amorous one as well. He fumes from the thought of someone disrespecting the house that he leads and only changes his tune when he gets back in view of the new girl.
He looks back up as Roldan steps forward as well and is letting the girl sit with her meal next to her.
The maids had already come and changed her cloths into some presentable linens, even though she still had some dirt on her face and hands she was for the better now at least.

He gaze meets his as he bends to a knee and begins to inspect her for a few moments, going through his routine with a new slave did do something to calm his mind. She was a rather pretty sort and when saw her bindings had the inscribing for its suppression against her kind he leaned in and held to her head. Drawing in a deep breath as he did with Nix and took in what she would most likely be.."Ahh.. a wolf.. and a pure breed at that." He takes a deep look back at her face and see's that she still burns with a wild nature inside of her even though she doesn't appear to have it in a outward form.

Kenner thought for a moment on how strange a coincidence this is seeing that he called William, he might take a liking to this one on sheer reference.

* * * *

Pesshka stood at the wall and watched the others eat and thought that it was good she didn't have to really force anyone's hand and in her mind was grateful for not having to do so at all. She did like her work and for what it was worth she really did enjoy being over them, if not but in a more aggressive support capacity. Nix and Bloodsong finally came to their senses as they began to eat the food given to them.
She however also noticed one of the other slaves, nestled in the corner of her cell eating and sitting quietly in some sort of cold contemplation. Peeshka could see the thoughts going to and fro on her face as her eyes did the same mismatched dance. She had not touched her meals full portions and that tipped her off on the facts that either she didn't like that type of food at all, or she was a vegetarian. She smirked even though you could not see the expression on her mask as she approached Miyako's cell.

~Deep in thought I see... tell me, what are you thinking off child?~
She was sincere in the question, having known many slaves before this one she could already guess at her story and piece together where she might have come from. Seeing out the corner of her vision she caught the werehyena Nix as well clasped on the edge of her bed and resting. She could almost feel the emotion glowing off the girl in bestial form.

Watching as the same male from before re entered the room she was brought into, Genti couldn't do nothing but stay where she was because of how weak she still felt but watched him care of every move he made towards her as she sat. She felt better in these new clothes she had been able to change into but that didn't make her feel any more comfortable with where she was. She wasn't stupid and despite her condition had heard clearly as to where she had been taken. The only plus side as for now was that Genti had been taken away from those men. They had been horrid to her and had kept her in that box because of how much she had fought with them before they had started keeping her from getting any food. Her lips were dry and the smell of the food beside her made her stomach hurt but she ignored it for now and moved her head away from the male's reach as quickly as she could. This only being a slow move though as her brows furrowed and she looked back at him with a look of distaste for him placing a finger on or near her.

Kenner

Master Kenner looked back at the young girl staring up into his eyes, she possessed a rather salted look about her and he could tell she was having a hard time dealing with him as well. It was a look of anger that he had seen many times before, being that she could not or did not want to come to grips with her current condition.

He mused a bit about how she stared at him.
He picked up the bowl of soup that she was trying to avoid and held it up to her as a sign of good will.. "Come on little one.. you need to eat, because how are you going to have the strength to take me down if that strength does not exist within you?" He was making fun of her expression towards him, but at the same time making sure that she would have the right of mind to actually eat the food and if not for common sense then her own health.

"And while we can talk.. I am Master Kenner?" He gives her an assured look as he slightly wiggles the bowl in front of her face. "And who might you be?"

* * * *

Peeshka looked into the cell at the little girl, Miyako was beginning to lose control of herself from the sheer thought of coming back to the memories of her home and the people who ensured her for this fate. As the girl cried and shook her head Peeshka squeezed through the bars as she did before and quickly took the girl in her arms.
The hold was not one of affection, pity, or even one of affirmation to her suffering. She grabbed the girl and slightly cupped her in the length of her arms, staring her deep into the eyes with the blank stare of her mask. Miyako can see directly into the pits of the eye sockets of the mask, with the two same pin pricks of white phosphorus light pointing back at her.

Slowly she began to pull Miyako closer and up towards her, Pesshka picked the girl up and held her aloft as if coddling a child. She ran her mask across the face of Miyako and brushed it back and forth slightly, Miyako all the while feeling a sickly cold air escaping from the edges of the mask where it meets the leather binding.
~Shhhh... I only dislike such things because tears are a waste.. If you be a good girl and do as your told, then everything will be all right.~ She withdrew her mask from Miyako's face and the tears of her sadness were now glistening off the white ivory surface of the doll face.

~But if you don't do as your told.. I will not be as forgiving.~ at that moment a long black gelatinous tongue worked its way out of the right eye socket and began to clean away the blemishing from Peeshka's mask. She finished by bringing the girl closer and wiping the edge of her cheek off as well before withdrawing the organ.
~The Master will care for you, look after your needs and even in time.. love you. But if you think I am a monster? Then he can show you so much more.~ Pesshka sets the girl back down on her bed and straightens her into a seated position before asking. ~Do we have an understanding?~

She turned her head away from the bowl at first until he spoke of taking him down and she first looked back over to him with narrowed eyes at his seeming to mock at her but than seemed as if she hadn't thought of that. Looking from him to the bowl a few times before slowly reaching up and taking the bowl in her hands. Careful not to touch his fingers with her own thin feminine fingers as she removed it from his grip. Bringing it slowly to her nose, she sniffed, smelling nothing strange within the food she than lowered it to her lips. Again being very slow with her actions as she watched the man and sipped at the soup. Keeping herself from slurping or trying to eat it all as fast as she could as her stomach growled as it filled with something to digest. Her eyes were not as hardened as they were before as she tamed her hunger, but she was still very weary of the man and guarded about having anything to do with him. "Genti.." Her voice raspy and dry as it hurt to speak just yet. "Genti Stone.." Her legs coming up to rest the bowl on her knees as she grew tired of holding it.

Kenner

Kenner looked down at the girl as she spoke.. "Genti?.. That is quite nice." his train of thought was interrupted by the pounding boots of a guard approaching from the entrance. "Master Kenner.. its Mad Dog, he has the two men from before.." Kenner's face brightens at the moment and he turns to look at Roldan, giving him a small signal to take the girl away.. "Take her to the atrium and have the others moved there as well. I will be on my way shortly."

Roldan blinks his reaction to Kenner's words and reaches down to lift up the smaller woman, the surprise almost making her drop the bowl. With he in hand he barks his orders to the other guards and they in turn run about gathering their things for moving all the others along as well.

But for now Kenner looks on as Manhoon and his men are lead into Raven Loft from the weather outside, he is also rather ecstatic to see the two suspects in tow among Bills cattery. They moved weakly with a wobble in each step, this was enough to tell Kenner that they had been worked over pretty well to get them to cooperate or even so for fun.
With the approach of the group both me were brought to their knees by two of Bills men and Kenner walked up in front of them with his hands on his waist and his robe split as before.. "I'm glad I can always count on you William" It was obvious now that Kenner and Mad Dog had a history and even thought it was a small footnote of time that registered for Kenner he was glad that such a man existed as to be counted on.

He stared down on the two pathetic excuses of man as they made small scrupulous noises to dictate their feeling towards the moment of their peril. The man on the left with his lightly brown and muddied hair has already starting to make a mess of the moment. Apperantly he soiled himself during the ride back, or maybe it was the man handling that Bills men gave him either which could not be discerned now anyway. The left one however, the little blonde man was also causing his own problems.
His nose somehow got broke before he got inside and an audible drip could be heard in the silence of the moment. Red dots of life dropped from his broken face and started leaving a small round reflective circle on the marble below. Kenner Sneered for a moment realizing that it would be his maids to clean up such a mess. Both men raise their eyes in fright and freeze when they see Kenner, who in turn leans in a small amount with his smile.. "What nothing to say?..." The blonde man stammers a small bit when he tries to answer but ends up swallowing his right to speak with a large resounding gulp in his throat.

Kenner raises himself and grabs the two men by the hair lightly twisting their heads to change position so he can speak and announce his orders.. "Guards.. I want them in a set of pared stocks and locked in the lower ring for three weeks." He tips the men back as the lose balance on their knees and fall backwards, their head smacking the marble easily causing more physical pain. The two guards on the stairs were quick to grab the men by the ankles and drag them off back towards the door, only to turn a corner and soon disappear down a ridged stair case.
Both of the men making sobbing sounds all the way, it was evident that they didn't know what was coming but they still feared it all the same.
Kenner produced a small rag from inside of his robe and wiped his hands clean of the muck that the men left behind, only to drop the rag and step forward and finally approach Mad Dog and take his hand in a hearty shake.. "Ahh.. Mad Dog Manhoon. Just the man that I can count on to make my day instantly better." They release the grip and Kenner looks at Daud with a large Grin.. "Welcome back as well Daud."

* * * *

Pen'g stood at the edge of the table and looked at the other Masters as they sat and finished their meals, Kaede was the first to act out with his small toast and while she was forbidden from drinking at the moment she gave him a slightly nod and smile. It was then that another entered from the adjacent door, it was another woman dressed in white. In fact she was dressed the same way as Peng'e, save for the fact that she had a rather large pony tail pulled in her hair with only the bangs sticking out. She looks at Peng'e and moves in to say something to her before moving back out of the room moving out of the main door. peng'e makes a slight face as she exist and returns her gaze back towards the group only when Eavia speaks up about wanting to see the slaves. She smiles and bows gesturing towards the rear door from where the other woman arrived and she walks out slowly so the others may have their time to rise and follow.

Meanwhile below Pesshka has stepped outside of Miyako's cell, she looked over at Nix as she spoke to herself. Either that or she was trying to get Pesshka's attention for some reason and the masked woman leaned in as she approached the werehyenas own container.
She presses her self against the bars as she tilts her head to hear the distant noise of boots approaching and turns back toward Nix. ~Well.. if you be a good girl and follow her lead.. then you will get your chance.~

When Genti was finished being looked at and spoken to by the male who had gotten her to eat she was starting to go to sleep where she sat on the ground as a woman took her bowl and brought it to the kitchen of the large building. Only to be women up a few seconds after by that same woman as she was grabbing gently onto her arms to help her rise. "Come, this is not the place for you to be sleeping." The unnamed female said as Genti rose slowly, weak with having little sleep and walked with her to where there were cages for slaves. Too tired and weak at the moment after everything to bother fighting the older female as she went into a cage and laid slowly down as the door closed with a audible bang from the metal hitting each other. The cool ground made shiver a bit and bring her legs and arms closer to herself but it didn't dare keep her from going back to sleep as she quickly dazed off. Her breathing slowing and muscled relaxing as she lay there. For now she didn't care if she were in a cage or at home or even if she was laying on the dirty ground or a bed. All that mattered was that she would be able to regain some energy and escape her reality through dreams. At least for now.

Kenner

With the greetings done between Mad Dog and Kenner it is taken upon the business men to converse more as they walk for a while through the master hall.
Kenner is starting to understand that this day must have been some sort of test to get under his skin, however Williams presence is making everything seem much better as the time drew on.. "I see Manhoon."
"If you are looking for some new.. blood as you so lovingly put it, I may be able to facilitate."
He beckoned Mad Dog on and offered the extension to Daud as well and so the men began to walk out of the hall. As they left the guards who escorted the two men down below returned and continued with their own duties of standing guard at the stairs.

As the moved on it was easy to tell for Mad Dog that most of Raven Loft's insides had been renovated since he left with Daud in his keeping. Marble lined most of the floor and high archways gave the halls a towering appearance. Seeing that it was only barely after mid day many of the houses patrons were moving about to get back and forth between their respective stations. The sounds of the whole body that was this place echoed on around them while their foot steps were easily drowned out by the rest of such immense movement.

Kenner kept speaking to enhance the conversation between him and Mad Dog. "I do have an idea of what you could be looking for.. someone well enough for your new enterprise. From what I hear that new club will be ready for full operation soon." He dipped his head slightly as several woman passed by in sundresses, each with an assertive bounce in their step and it could be seen why. A woman was walking behind them who cast assertion in her face and dominance in her stride. It was her that was driving the group on to whatever activity they intended to be at next.
She gave Kenner a firm but respectful nod as she passed him and his two friends.
With their passing Kenner continued.."As of now all of my new additions that are not taken.. are rather bare."

"I do however have some unique new treats for our trainers at least."

As they kept moving in their purpose the three passed into a large rotunda of passageways with several stairways leading down into and away from it. This was the causeway, and it was the only part of Raven Loft that truly remained untouched from the renovations. Peng'E was leading the other masters into the rotunda at the same time and she could see Kenner ahead of the group. With a slight pause in her step the group was halted before fully surpassing Kenner's, she gave a slightly bow towards the masters accompanying her before Kenner himself greeted them.. "Ah yes.. its good to see you all here now, that is fine now Peng'E you can head back to mistress Thresh now." The woman in white bows once again flashing a slight smile as she heads back up the stairs from where the group came.

Kenner beckoned them onward and lead them further eastward into the keep and as he lead them on the hall began to become wider and taller, with a great vast light pouring in from the exit ahead. Each step lead them closer and as they walked the sounds of nature could be heard coming through the opening as well.
When the group broke the threshold it became clear to them what the name atrium meant.
It was a vast opening within the bowels of Raven Loft it had the makings of a massive gladiatorial arena, but instead of sand within the base of this giant ring there was a field. Trees and tall grass and a sizable lake in the center and all that many creatures could wish for. Kenner walks the group out onto the balcony of a large slope overlooking the atrium and presents it to them all. "Welcome to the atrium, a crowning example of design if ever there was one. As you look around you there is nature for all to see and if you cast your eyes above even the sun itself is part of Raven Loft."

He was not off when he said this, for when an eye was cast upwards a circular inverted dome could be seen dominating the roof of the atrium. It shined with a deep warm light that gave life as easily as the sun itself would do in mid summer.
"For all those slaves who want to see the world as they left it and come back to nature, however it is still safe to let them roam free here. There is no chance of escape even for those with the power of flight."

* * * *

Peeshka looked back at Nix as a look passed on her face that the masked warden would not have thought possible for the shape shifter to show. She tilted her head to the side as guards with restraining implements arrived in droves, each one in full dress and waiting with baited breath for Pesshka's words.
She cast her gaze towards them and spoke.. ~Alright pair up and get to your appointed cells..~ She looked up to see that behind several of them men were two guards with Genti in arm, they did little to hamper her movement and instead lent an arm to help support her weight for her as they helped her walk. The men & woman got to work as Pesshka walked closer to see Genti for herself. Stopping only a few feet away she stared for a few seconds before slowly leaning in, her expressionless mask looking on and red leather bindings creaking as she inched forward. ~I see.. a new one comes again unscheduled.~
"The master also wants her moved into the atrium with the others.." The guard holding her bowl in his right hand spoke in order to clarify. Peeshka only returned a twitch of her head in his direction before looking back at Genti before nodding.

Everyone was thus gathered up from their cells.
Awoken from slumber or lead out from their positions, some had to be restrained in order to keep the guards peace of mind. The cause to being marked with a black collar saw many of those slaves being treated as such. However the guards were gentle as they could be and courteous in their work, the master would not want to see them damaged what he had just come into possession of within the last hours.
It was then that the group of slaves, was lead towards their destination of the atrium. However they did not share the use of the upper walkways like the masters and more privileged slaves were used to. The area they walked was darker and more somber with wider halls and such open spaces as to maneuver large groups of bodies. This was the main way for the guards to transfer a mass of slaves from one point in Raven Loft to the other and while the atmosphere of this lower area was rather dim.
It still bore a fresh air and lenient energy about it.

The only exception to the move was Nitha, she was left within her cell. The guards did not have the material to move her nor the manpower at the moment and while Kenner with his gifts could transport easily, they would need several men to move her even with a dolly.

Within several minutes the group was lead through a causeway of their own and this one itself lead into the grassy area within the atrium. As the guards lead the slaves in one after the other was released from their bindings and left to stand within the light of the atrium's dome. Those with less tendencies to strike were released first and those with black collars were let go last before the guards passed through the cause way again and as the last stepped through a large gate was swung closed behind to bar an exit.

Pesshka stayed behind with Nitha looking into her cell..~I must say that it is good to see one of your kind again.. it has been some time since one with blood like yours has passed through these walls.~

Genti would wake only slightly from her slumber as she heard the guards entering cages and the argumentative growls or shuffling of some of the other slaves. She had gained some of her strength back, she could feel it. But not enough to fight back as two men picked her up, groaning as they helped her stand and walked her out of the cell. She tried nudging them off but started to fall, being caught by the two before she could, and figured it better for now to just go along with them as they walked out out of the dark room with many others who had also been in cells. Genti looked mainly at the ground as they went down the long hall that lead to a huge bright room. Only looking briefly at each face around her as they went before they were released into the large grassy place. She stumbled a bit weakly as she was let go but stood none the less, surprising herself at that. She saw that the entire place was surrounded by walls and that there was no real way out. This was just another part of the large place she was now prisoner in. Frowning at this as she walked further in, a little dazed as she past a male resembling a wolf slightly and walked until she felt the need to rest. Only getting a few feet from where they had been let go before she slowly went to sitting on the ground. Her legs to the left of her as she felt the warm grass on her skin. She couldn't help but smile at it, it reminded her of the large land her and her siblings used to play on when they were young, before she was forced to work either inside the house with her mother or in their small town with an old family friend to help get a little extra money. The clothes she had been given hung loosely on her and were a bit to big for her body but she didn't bother trying to fix them as she just looked at the grass and her pail hands for a few minutes. She didn't care to notice the group of masters and higher ranked beings than herself and others who had entered this large yard with her. Only focusing on the scent and feel of the nature that grew around her as she took in a relaxed breath through her nose. She brushed her short black hair from her eyes as they traveled up a large tree nearest her and scanned the false sky for any possible way out of here and back to her home, but there was none. This she had known without even having to bother looking again after having entered this part of the building.

Genti looked from her hands to the man she had spoken to briefly only what might have been hours ago, she wasn't sure how long she had slept for. It could have even been mere minutes since she had last seen the man. The male's interactions with a creature looking similar to a hyena were rather short and she didn't move much at what had happened, but it did cause something in herself to arise. She shivered as she felt her feral wanting to come out, it was not only growing with excitement from seeing what had just happened but also having been placed in a forest like place along with many other breeds of different creatures and shifters made her want to change forms even more despite not wanting to get up. Though without much time to think of if it were smart of not with all these other possibly dangerous creatures around, she lowered her torso down as her body rapidly shook, or rather, shivered before a jet black pelted female wolf took her place. Lowering her head and standing she shook off the clothes that still covered her from her human form. Her change was much gentler of a sort and not painful at all for her. There was a sort of beauty to it, she thought. No, she did not flash with a light into each form, but it was much easier on the eyes to see her do so and that brought her a bit of pride when doing so in front of others as they saw no pain or nasty contortions from her. Taking in a deep breath once having shaken off the human clothing, she took in each and every scent nearest her of the nature and beings within the large room before walking forward a bit out of curiosity. Genti felt as though she had quite a bit more of her strength back now than she had moments ago and slowly walked around. Careful not to get to close to any others as she investigated her surrounding and those with herself. Keeping an ear and eye out for in case anyone tried anything even though she didn't think that were going to happen. The others seemed rather calm and happy around each other and that eased her a bit as well.

Genti walks about as she sniffs the ground in her feral form. Stopping though at the sound of hissing coming from another creature near her. Her ears flicking towards the Neko, Kit as he speaks and stands defensively looking at the rather similar looking male Bloodsong. Her ears come down a bit at the actions of the one male before she lets out a slight growl from where she was. Turned only a bit towards the two as she does and her growl is only that of a warning not to start a fight. In her head she says 'This is not the time to be trying to harm each other.' Even though she is not sure if either of them can read the minds of others or not. Waiting for a moment as she watches the two before starting to slowly walk towards them. Staying between the space the two males have from each other as she goes over to them to see why the one, Kit, would want to try and cause problems. Not interested in a fight, but not showing any signs of being afraid of one.

Just as things possibly couldn't get any worse for the poor Neko, they did. Yet another canine was approaching him, growling. This time, a black, female wolf. Kit backed away slowly, his eyes easily giving away his terror as they bulged from his skull, his tail twitching between his legs, meowing like a lost kitten.

Fortunately, the first wolf thing had decided to back off, moving away and laying in the grass nearby, seemingly disappointed. Kit wasn't curious enough about the other's odd behavior to ask, no, certainly not. Kit's entire body was shaking frantically. Trapped in a pen with dogs... dogs everywhere.

"Please, just leave me alone" he wailed, his hands covering his face so he would at least not see his approaching death as it neared. Just when things had been peaceful, he with the other Neko, feeling comfortable... dogs of all things. Why did the universe hate him so, to curse not just one, but two dogs upon him?

He backed away further, praying that these animals would understand his words and have some sympathy for his cowering form but unsure that language was an ability for them. He was stopped in his tracks by a familiar scent... gentle and non-threatening, though certainly the same scent as that of the red-haired lady.

He turned to behold her, instantly forgetting both his conversation with Alistair and the menacing canines. She spoke to him, and Alistair to, he presumed and that was far more interesting than anything else that had happened since he got here. He cocked his head, marveling at her appearance, unlike anything he had seen before.

He moved toward her, low to the ground in a semi-crawl, a submissive stance against her strange but alluring form. "I am Kit, Kit Kuchini. I do not mean to offend, Miss, but what are you?" he asked. She must be Dragonkin, nothing else would fit the description but that, only she couldn't be because such beings were only the product of myths, right? But then, Kit had been very sheltered...

He was only a little frightened, his awe over-riding his fear, which was unusual for the Neko who was scared of everything. He hurriedly glanced over his shoulder, making sure there was ample distance between himself and the canines, who he had almost forgotten about entirely since he first inhaled the scent of the red-haired lady.

His tail wrapped around his legs and his bodily shaking subsided slightly, though he still quivered occasionally. "Are you really Dragonkin?" he asked, fascination clear in his voice as he spoke. Of all of the strange species he had seen since he arrived here, hers was the one which amazed him the most, for some reason.

The werewolf watched the feline as he trembled and shook at her approach once the other canine of sorts had walked away. Only getting out a huff of air at his terrified facial expression. Him showing so much fear didn't seem like something any one should do at any point in time. And It was clear that mental speaking between the two was no an option. She would have to be in her human form to talk to this one. But that was not going to happen, no way was she possibly impressing any strange 'masters' with any showing of bare skin or weakness in her human state.

The appearance of a dragonkin with it's strange scent made her look away from the feline though as she looked to the other female as she spoke to the neko. She too couldn't help but snort and let out a growl of annoyance. "So that is what slaves are to call masters? Simply other creatures of just as much power or weakness." She moved away from the neko and Dragonkin as she had had enough of the two already and slowly walked towards the other neko that looked more canine. Watching him as she lowered her head and kept her pace slow but weary of him. Seeing simply if he would allow her to lay with him rather than wandering about the place again like she had done already. Her ears back slightly with her tail only some what raised to show she was not interested in being the least bit submissive to anyone, simply looking for a place to rest.

Kit's awe did not lessen, only grew as the red-haired lady spoke to him and confirmed her species as being that of the Dragonkin. His body shook with wonder.

He inched his body toward her, picking up her scent off her extended hand and feeling at ease by the peacefulness of her smell. "Yes, it frightens me a little... but everything does. I didn't know your kind existed, Miss" he said, his eyes bulging as the fear and amazement mixed within the blood of his small body. He imagined he should be more frightened then he was but her appearance was a refreshing change from the canines which had been shrouding him before.

Upon inspection, he noticed that both of them had backed off a fair distance, allowing his ears and tail to relax as he became more comfortable and didn't have to be on the watch for dogs chewing at his back. That was something he would much rather not have to experience.

The Dragonkin lady assured him he had not to fear, that she meant him no harm and he decided he would trust her because although her species frightened him somewhat, due to it being so mighty and foreign in his mind, she offered nothing in her scent nor her mannerisms that threatened him. In fact, it would be quite the opposite. He felt somewhat comforted by her.

He moved toward her, gently rubbing his face against her hand in a display of affection, a soft purr sounding from his throat. He inspected her wings with the curiosity only natural to his kind before sitting down before her, the purr fading slowly. His quivering had ceased for now, no longer having to deal with with the prospect of wolf teeth and being more intrigued than frightened of the red-haired lady.

Kit noticed Ali appear beside himself and the Dragonlady and admired the manners in which Ali used when he spoke, something which he must have been taught through out his life with the breeders. He wish he knew how to better speak. It would seem all Kit knew how to do was run from things with his tail between his legs.

The larger man gives Emalyn a stiff stare as she responds to Roldan's question, he almost starts to lift his hand and strike her. This must stem from the fact that she basically ignored him for the entire trip from start all the way to finish.
His eye catches a small glint of metallic silver before his arm reaches back all the way and he realizes that the tip of a rapier is pointed narrowly at his chin. Roldan had slipped the papers to one side and produced the blade from its sheath on the back of his hip and his grip on it is rock solid as he points it further in and begins to prod the man on his lower lip. "I would suspect you to know the house rules.." The other trader lays his hand on his own face and speaks in the defense or his partner. "I apologize sir.. He doesn't get out much and I was rather apprehensive to bring him to begin with."

Two of the other guards step forward to edge the girl away from her original handlers, moving her behind Roldan and taking her into the doorway. Roldan takes his share of the papers and presses a small bag of silver into the hands of the more sensible trader while the other stepped back into the back of the carriage while still rubbing his chin.
He looks back at Emalyn as he steps towards her and smiles at the young Neko.. "Yes.. This will be your home now and don't worry, we will take good care of you." He reassures the young girl, petting her head lightly and brushing her ear with his fingers.
"Take her to the holding area.. Master Kenner should still be there and he would want to see her as well."
Roldan dropped his hand and stuffed the papers under his arm as he walked by, intent on going to his office to file the new arrival. While he does this the other two guards move Emalyn along with them down the side passage and through the master hall.

Peeshka finally enters the patio overlooking the Atrium as she peers at the other Masters, noticing that one is missing she strides over to the rail and looks down to see her getting aquianted with some of the other slaves. She cranes her head to the side as she speaks down into the clearing..~Time to head back now little one's.~
The guards were opening the main door as she finished speaking and they moved once again with the same trained sequence they had done before. Approaching the slaves calmly and cautiously, setting restraints and coaxing them out the gate as a reminisces of what happened before. The guards sway past Mistress Syntira, unfortunately they had to interrupt her conversation to get all the slaves rounded up and back out of the atrium.
"Apologies Mistress.. as per Master Kenner orders we are order to bring the slaves back to the holding area." Strangely the guards do not wait for a reply as they issue the slaves away and disappear themselves.

The leather clad Peeshka looks back at the other Masters and informs them..~It is now getting late and now dinner will be delivered to your quarters for tonight's meal.. so please enjoy your first night.~ She gives a slight bow as she leans back on the rail and falls over, her body giving away to a quick fall as she lands with an intense solid thud.
Her body recovers quickly however and she trots over to Syntira's person.
~Well.. Mistress, I suspect you would either like to eat or finish your little conversation. That or you could do both at the same time.. however you would have to pay for that dinner." It was obvious that she was making a sly little stab at her origins and if she had a face behind that mask it would be wearing an intense smirk for the moment.

It took some time while everyone was being ushered to and fro with their own effects passing by, a small audience of guards was given to the Masters to bring them back to their respective room. On their arrival they were met with the presentation of a personal dinner laid on the center table of their rooms. A meal fit for their taste and pallet was presented but one would guess how someone would have access to such knowledge.
The slaves in turn were returned to the holding area and instead of being brought in, one was released and allowed entry for them to get better acquainted with the new rooming.


Kenner looked to Quinn as she turned away from him and he noticed the small strip of incantations under her sleeves. He was quick to reach out and grab her right hand and pull her back around to face him, holding her arm closely so he can inspect it. By this time the other slaves were being released back into the room, one by one they came in and their bindings were released.
"It looks as though you were the center of some concern for a few people." He smiles for a while as he can be seen contemplating something as it crossed his mind. "I know of a way to quickly have you released if that if your wish.. but it is dangerous" as the slaves finished with their reentry he dropped her arm softly before returning. "We will finish this some other time.."

He walked past her and strode past Silver who was still situated next to Nitha and dipped his fingers in the fountain, giving the water a small flick as he walked past them to get their attention. "Alright ladies.. get ready for dinner." He walked up to the others as they got situated as well and spoke to them.
"Alright I suggest everyone grab a seat somewhere or at your beds and hold tight, Evix should be here with the food and I suggest everyone be at their best behavior." He laid his eyes on Nix and gave the hyena a smile with some teeth showing on his side before moving past.
His eyes pick out the new Neko girl who was being let into the door with by two other guards on the opposite door. He kept a cock sided look to his head as he walked up on the young girl and turned his eye to the guards. "Unregistered? The guard shook his head slightly and returned "No sir, Roldan says she was contracted through one of our agents." Kenner flashed a look of realization and issued the guards to move with their work as he took the young girl in his hands, holding her lightly at the shoulders and looked her over.

"My.. you are young, go ahead and take a bed for now while dinner comes. We will get you a collar tomorrow morning."
He sets the girl to his side and steps past as Peeshka shows up around the corner, she leaned around the doors edge and scanned her vision over the whole room, it was as if she was waiting for something.
