New Arrivals

The day within the last few hours of Thaiden have grown more lite in weather and while the clouds have receded past the horizon of sight, it was still possible to feel the heavy weight in the air. On this day the guards within the walls of Raven Loft were again expecting a shipment, one that they had been aware of for some time and as the men stared on they could see movement on the hills outside of the grounds.
But to the surprise of few there was not a carriage that came down the road, but a moving box with wheels. This was an automobile and while it was a change with the times that these would make their appearance. Many of the guards could only recall hearing about such a thing and the event of seeing one has a few of them slack jawed in the moment.
However Roldan was there and he had been to the cities further south were they do have such creations in abundance.."Its usually referred to as a car boys, now put your eyes back in and present yourselves. The men shot back into position as he smacked one on the back of his head to get his attention.

The car rolled down the uneven road with small rocks being tossed aside with each turn of the wheels.
The bodies inside rear box were not to well off themselves, being shoved inside and treated like they were it was not unsean.

The two driving were not to well off either, one seemed to be on edge for no reason and the other bore another item of the modern world. A shotgun, held in his arms as if a favored child and he as well was on the same mental level as his driving companion. As they pulled up to the front gate with papers and letters in hand the driver exited the car and approached Roldan.
He held out his credentials for Roldan to take and he spoke in turn.. "Alright.. we're here, can we leave now?" Roldan gave the man who was still looking quite skittish in his shoes and his weary eyes and asked. "Whats wrong? You could stay a while and rest up, we offer food & bed inside." The man hectically shakes his head and responds.

"No..N-n-no.. We have traveled far enough with that damn demon in the back and I ain't risking my life no mo." The mans vernacular reveals that he isn't from the best of gene pools, that and the six missing teeth seemed to give him away as well.
Roldan gave his men a signal after the papers matched his own and the men moved to opened the rear door and this provoked a response from the armed man who aimed dead at the rear of the car. Roldan was there to place a hand on the barrel and lower it for him as the guards pulled both of the slaves to be out.
Roldan was thinking something was amiss when he spotted the two being pulled out, his papers said two girls. He looked up and was reassured with his sight that it was one girl and one demon. The green eyed girl was young looking and aware of her surroundings, though it seems she was woken up for her to be removed from the car. The more intriguing girl was a demon born, a succubus to be more precise. However her physical features were obscured by a cowl and small mouth cover. Apparently the men who handled her first had some problems with her coaxing one of their own and this is what they decided to do with. While the cowl did not completely block her vision, that was not the full intention of such a piece of fabric. It was more intended so others could not see her eyes and therefore fall for whatever tricks she could employ.

Roldan let the driver get back to his seat and allowed them to turn around before handing them the silver they deserved for their delivery. The men were all too eager to drive off and be rid of their cargo, while Roldan was content to escort them into the main hall with two other guards to help the girls along.
As they walked into the hall and allowed the girls to take in the large structure within Roldan called to a guard."Find the master and tell him that the late shipment has arrived." He looks back at the girls as the guard runs off and takes a slight first impression for himself.

Liuvash looked up at the man known as 'Roldan' with a souless expression and then lowered her head. She didnt survey her surroundings all she did was look dead ahead as if looking into a black hole. Awaiting this 'Master' she stood still and calmy as a stone.

"Do not talk if they capture you, Liuvash!" Her mother screamed before she was killed, A single tear ran down her face as she remembered the events that transpired before she was shoved into a car with another slave and driven off. She remember how the driver used to look in his mirror and all she did was stare at him, She did not talk to anyone on the way here. She will only do as they ask and then hopefully live for the rest of her life happily.

Kenner

After having tested Nix on her resolve, which the act in itself showed Kenner that he would need to keep an eye on such an powerful and spirited individual. His trek back to his quarters were not hampered by the presence of other people so he was able to cut some corners and pass through other areas without drawing attention.
He was sound with leaving the other masters by themselves to look in on the others and he would not live to regret such a choice. The guards themselves were well trained and could handle any other problems that might arise. His thoughts came back to Nix however at the idea of how she could handle what he had given her and maybe that it was a bit too much for her constitution to take.

Deep in thought he was back in his room, with the closet open and an array of clothes before him, he took the chance to adorn himself softer then the dark reds and instead dressed in light greens. Almost changing his whole attire were it not for the fact he still did not have shoes on.
He heard a distant knock on his door and turned to speak. "Enter.." he commanded with a solemn voice and the door swung open with a guard it its holdings. He stayed at the door, not daring to cross the threshold between Kenners room and the rotunda. "Master Kenner, the new arrivals slated for today have come.. Roldan currently has them in the main hall." Kenner spun around and walked off as he finished tying his sash, approaching the guard in time. "That's splendid.. go ahead and have them brought to the holding area while I make ready for the slaves return from the atrium." He said as he passed the guard patting him on the shoulder and heading down the stair.
With a heated bounce in his step the guard was right behind Kenner as they moved down the stair.

As Kenner and the guard come down the stairs he can see that both of the woman were in fact in the main hall, but his curiosity is peeked when he see's that one is a succubus. Without losing his stride he beckons with a finger and the guards escorting the two woman bring them on in tow with Kenner.
He steps in time with an unheard beat and only makes the men stop with the woman outside of the archway into the holding area before he steps in alone. There Peeshka was still peering into Nitha's cell and she turns towards him with a crick in her neck.. ~She wishes to.. swim..~ Kenner gives a small smile with the realization of this and returns "Yes her kind like to do such things among being well fed and taken care of." He gives his fingers a crack and stretches with his elbows for a second giving Pesshka a small pause. ~Your going to do that now?..~ Her voice returning to the same as it was before, several echoing tones and mannerisms channeling into one singular voice.

"Yeah.. I am" He drops to his knees once again and presses his palms against the floor causing the soft white light to peel away into the area around him. Yet this time it keeps growing and consuming filling out into the whole of the room. Where furniture was the light encased the floor and that object would sink into the warm light disappearing from view and in one moment the walls of the room made a slight lurching noise as the structure of Raven Loft shifted to adapt to the change.
The cages all around soon to fell into the light and even Nitha's own cell dissolved around her, the heated stone and bowls being whisked away from view just as quick. Her whole body was surrounded by this soft glowing radiance that in itself one could hear a slight hum. While light became the only thing that anyone near or in the room could see.

Then within an instance all was clear once more, the room itself had taken a massive change in shape and interior. It was now a single large room with both exits possessing strong barred gates, the beds themselves now situated on the northern side of the room while a low fountain like bath had been formed on the southern end in turn. The heated rock was now in the corner surrounded by plush pillows for those who wished to lay as well away from the beds and small tables situated near the fountain.

Kenner stood and began to brush his hands against his thighs as he whistled out for the guards to bring the two new girls in and so they responded. As they walked in he looked back at Pesshka and Nitha giving the Naga as slight gesture with his hand towards the large fountain. It looked as though it could handle her size and then a few others, while the water sparkled and cascaded divinely.
He turned and gazed back at the two being brought before him and reached up to see the young human girl and looked at the guard holding the papers. He caught Kenner looking at him and shortly stammered with his voice before speaking.."Yes.. This girl is named Silver, while her companion here is name Liuvash D-da-Daronia?" Kenner gave him a nod as he looked over the young girl Silver and ran his hands over her shoulders for a moment while giving her a calm look.

She was slightly meek to him but that could be a type of apathy that he usually see's with young girls, he slides her bangs back over her ears as he gives her a small smile and begins to step away. "Rather puzzling look in her eyes.. Red & Pink for now.. until we get a better look at her."
He stepped up to Liuvash and sighed as he looked at the way she had been dressed up, he almost could laugh at the superstition of humans when dealing with anything beyond their comprehension. He takes a moment to undo the clasp on her gag and unties her cowl, removing them gently taking care not to pull her hair or catch anything sensitive. Once her eyes were clear he could see that her beauty was respective of her race and he gave her a smile as well. Going through the motions he touched her in several small places not going beyond normal boundaries and gave her a clean look over.

"She has promise.. Blue & white.. maybe Pink as well if she has the aptitude for it." The guards move up behind the two and slide the corresponding color of collar around their necks latching them and returning to their own duties as they walk back out the holding area, shutting the new gate behind them.
Kenner gives the girls a solid smile as he reaches down and unbinds them from their irons, strangely enough with only his bare hands and as the shackles fall to the floor they are consumed by the familiar white light on impact to disappear as well. Kenner see's that Liuvash has two small bangles on her wrist that are made of a specially forged metal, he can tell these are actually made to suppress any other powers that she might have in her veins.

He takes a step back and lets the girls get a look at their surroundings and rub their wrist free of the stiffness before speaking.. "Welcome to Raven Loft my dears.."

The instant the figure entered she knew he was no Keiro. She heard the guard read out her name and as he walked towards her, she forced herself to swallow her fear, not letting any sign of it show in her face. Silver looked at him calmly, innocently, and timidly. He touched her shoulders and she flinched, so softly he no doubt didn't feel a thing. He seemed calm, but she could sense a slight tenseness in his muscles, an unease in his mind that he almost managed to hide with his outward confidence, but couldn't quite. Not to her. He moved to brush her hair out of her face and she remained calm, the effort less now than the first time. He smiled at her, and she felt the corners of her mouth turn up a little in response. "Rather puzzling look in her eyes, Red and Pink for now... until we get a better look at her," He then moved onto the demon girl.
He, like the others, kept his focus on the demon longer than on her, and she felt a wisp of jealousy course through her before she blew it away, keeping her emotions in check. Silver kept her eyes on the floor, until she felt him return to remove the shackles that weighed her down. He manged this with just his hands, and instantly she was wary again. Not human, then, surely. "Welcome to Raven Loft my dears..."
And then Silver couldn't help herself. Her instinct took over as she closed her eyes and inhaled deeply. She absently ran her hand over the scar between her shoulder blades where the lash had once cut through her skin. She willed herself to focus. And then suddenly she was driving all her energy into him, relaxing his tense shoulders, easing his burden. Silver washed over his mind, leaving it calm and placid, free of worry, soothed. As she returned to herself, she took a deep breath and opened her eyes once more, her lips breaking into a smile, as if to say, See? I'm not what I seem.

She could see her surrounding more clearer now that the cowl has been removed, the gag was also removed aswell letting her breath clearly. Liuvash did not move while he look her over, she felt a sudden strange feeling. "Be thankful for everything you have," Liu remembered her mother used to say with that usual smile. Liu was thankful that she survived, that she was allowed to live, giving a smile to the man infront of her as meant to say. "Thank you" He stood back and announced that the girl beside her a Red and Pink collar. She wondered what she will be given, Liu had a kind heart eversince she was a child, she responded easily to commands so what colour would that represent?

"She has promise.. Blue and white.. Maybe pink aswell if she has the aptitude for it," She heard him announce as she felt a Blue&White&Pink collar being slipped onto her neck, she smiled at it, it was somehow pretty. She saw the man walk up to them and place a hand on each of the shackles as somehow they fell the floor and swallowed by a white light just when they came in contact with the floor. She felt him place two bangles on her wrists, Liu felt strange like she could not do something anymore. Maybe to ensure I do not try and escape.. She massaged her wrists for a brief moment and stretched her wings closely keeping an eye on the man who took a step back and spoke. "Welcome to Raven Loft my dears.." She thought to herself for a brief moment. So this is where I am...

#, as written by PixieCP
No sooner had she made her request to the alien when the kind/strange one returned. Nitha perked up at seeing him, her only friend in a long time. He had a brief exchange with the alien, and then....

Oh gods oh gods oh gods EVERYTHING was changing and Nitha had herself wrapped into a tight ball of fear as she lost sight of the world through the light. It was like what he had done to make her cage earlier, but then she'd been watching it, not in the midst of it. For a moment she had an irrational thought that he might try to rearrange her as well. When the world went back to normal, everything had changed and shifted. The bars were gone though there was still ones in the doors, but the room was now more open, what she had recognised as resting places shifted to one wall and her warmer in a corner. Nitha was bunched up, arms held close as she stared wildly.

However nobody else seemed perturbed by the situation at all, as the alien seemed utterly unaffected and the kind/strange one himself was calm as he led in two females, and the men she was beginning to recognise as guards. Nitha relaxed slightly, still eagle eyeing the kindstrange one.

She was somewhat mollified when he guestured slightly to the side and she darted her eyes across to see a pool. Well, sort of a pool. But closer to anything she'd seen to wash herself in so far. She slid over slowly to investigate, moving sideways while keeping her eyes on proceedings. The two females in with her now seemed much more calm and docile than those who had been in earlier, and she felt a wash of relief at that. Reaching the clear water, Nitha stuck her hand in. It was cool, but if she didn't spend forever in there and got back on her warmer quickly, that wouldn't be a problem. As she swirled it, she noticed that the muck that washed off her hand drifted to the side of the pool before vanishing under the rim. Curious, Nitha poked her finger under it, temporarily ignoring proceedings in favour of figuring this out. There seemed to be some sort of small aperture, or series of them, under the rim. Which meant the water was flowing. Which meant.... even if she washed every bit of filth off her, it would wash away and she was going to be clean! Nitha enthusiastically slid into the water and dunked her head, her entire length vanishing in although the widest point of her coils didn't quite fit under the surface. She resurfaced and happily shook her head to flop her locks about before rolling and dunking the back of her head in, hands coming up vigorously scrub. As she wiggled happily, she looked to the two new females who were also wearing pretty necklaces. Maybe they'd want to bathe too, she thought, not thinking of how very intimidating a large naked naga with her ribs showing would look.

Kenner

The girls reaction and cause took Kenner back for a moment, he looked at her with a renewed vigor as the instance passed and he smiled at her. "Interesting.." He stepped back to Peeshka's side for a moment and looked over to see Nitha doing her best to wash the days scales away, this brought a slight smirk to his face as he walked over towards her.
Peeshka took the moment to speak towards the two woman..~It should be fine for the two of you to pick a bed now.. just try not to get too comfortable.. you never know what may transpire.~
Her tone was euphoric for the most part and the fact that she didn't deter from her mask singular blank stare was not going to win over hearts anytime soon. So while Silver and Liuvash were allowed to find their own beds, Kenner kept moving towards the fountain with Nitha within.

"So.. you like the fountain?" By the time he spoke she was already leaned up against the inside of the bowl with he eyes fixated on the new girls. Kenner looked her over and he took in her form, despite however the fact that she was still slightly underweight she was more spry then before.
His words did cause her to tilt her head albeit instinctively from his interaction he still knew she did not speak the common language. "Such a barrier.. I will have to do something." She still stared at him blankly as he talked, apparent that his interaction with her was more soft then what she was used to.

He took her head in hand gently and caressed her chin as easily as he first met her, Kenner was looking for a way to help her understand the common tongue. He did have a few methods, but some were painful and he did not relish the thought of doing such a thing to her without a proper reason. He noticed then that her ears while slender, were at one point in time pierced. Her jewelry must have been taken when she was captured or she lost them at some point in her travels to Raven Loft. Kenner on the other hand did not really care about that, he had seen an opening for a more useful method of helping her learn and it was then that he slowly took his hands and clutched the sides of her head.
He pulled the young Naga closer to his chest and held her lightly, this made Peeshka uneasy as she paced slightly behind his back with a tense look in her form. Kenner on the other hand began to rub the lobe of her right ear with his fingers and kept utmost contact with her eyes.
She was easy with his touch that was no secret, but what came next was most likely out of her perception for him. A sharp yet quick lancing pain shot through the corresponding ear, only foretold by a crack of sound and a small blink of light. Needless to say the effect made a reeling withdraw in her body, but he had shifted his grip to her shoulders and held her fast. Her coiled form flowed down and pulsed away in its own attempt to run from the quick sensation tossing some of the water from the fountain.

Even though the pain was as quick as the act, what came next left an even more strange impression for Nitha. "I must apologize for what I just did, but it was a necessity." His voice was clean and clear, but strangely Nitha could understand him with just as clear perception as when he just spoke.

New Arrival

Deep within the halls of Raven Loft there is a place, this place is enigmatic compared to the rest of the great house because it is so strange and secretive. This place is a gathering hall all its own, for individuals that are the more arcanely capable of the houses inhabitants.
Many work here robed and covered to preserve their identities and they move about carrying their wares and trades in hand. Scrolls and tomes that tell the stories of countless eternities and the people who carry them are more simple in their own motives. It was Kenner and his own allies that allowed for the creation of this section of Raven Loft and it is here that their teachings are exemplified in the material realm.

It is here that a man works, one of two brothers that serves Kenner in their research and one of two that strive to improve all. They stand shoulder to shoulder as they each finish drawing a circle of incantation on the floor.
"Jeremy, Are you sure the incantation is spot on?" The first brother looks to his sibling as they finish laying the powder for the circle. "Of course it is.. we both drew and prepared for it." The other replied giving a look back to get his point across.
This is Jeremy and Joshua, the two twin brothers have been within this lead position for Raven Loft for the last ten years and each one is a capable master in his own right.

Jeremy holds in his hand an item like that of Kenner's crystal.
He holds it up to his face and speaks into it.. "We are ready on this end, are you prepared as well?" The voices on the other side return with a cohesive *Yes* in their voices. The two brothers have been working on using their own application of magic to acquire product for Kenner's use and they were both o a breakthrough with their research. A woman was being held on the other end of the line of communication, a prisoner and demon no less. It was this fact that the brothers needed her seeing as she was not human and her body was suitable for the energies of where she would be traversing.

The woman on the other end was placed inside the center of a circled incantation ring, brought to her knees and a clasped chain latched to the floor to hold her in placed. She could see very little of her captors save for the dim light shining on the lower sections of their faces and a singular outstretched hand from each. They were intending to send her to Raven Loft via the Ether, a malleable world of constant magical essence that many of the arcane arts take advantage of.
Each member participating holds their hands out towards the center of their respective circles and begins to chant, Jeremy and Joshua do the same as they hold out their hands as well.
This causes the circles to glow faintly as each member continues to speak with the Demon held within feeling the light creep up on her thighs. As the spell works its way to completion both of the brothers share a moment of ecstatic momentum with a stare from one to the other. They had been working on such spell work for some time now and with this they hope to prove their worth even more to Kenner.

The moment of truth comes when Jeremy leans in with his hand to finish the incantation and speaks. "Clatu.. Veratta..Nic.."In the last moments the worst of things could happen, he sneezes and botches the incantation horribly.

As each member realizes that something has gone wrong they are too late to stop the spell and within that second the light envelops the young Demon and she is whisked away.
She is drawn through the Ether at a blinding pace as her travel is disturbingly fast and frantic as well. She is spit out of an unknown opening far from the laboratory that the brothers use and to make matters worse her exit it several feet suspended in the air.
A quick burst of turqoise light flashes into the room, bathing Kenner, Nitha, and the others in its radiance as she begins to fall. The demon girl makes a heavy splash in the water of the fountain showering Kenner over the front of the face as she lands.

Elated to be left to her own devices, Silver left the hall and walked briskly down the corridor, yearning to explore. She was still unsettled by what had occurred earlier, but thankfully the Master seemed to have forgotten all about her. He clearly had a lot on his mind. He hadn't introduced himself with his name, so she assumed he didn't like his slaves to address him by it, though she would've liked to have known what it was. She was just promising herself that she would lie low after this when there was a disturbance in the hall; the sound of splashing water and cries of pain. Silver stood frozen for a moment before making up her mind and hurrying back to the hall to investigate. She hovered just outside, unseen.
The beautiful, if not bizarre, creature in the fountain was thrashing madly about, while the Master stood over her, holding her firmly. The creature was clearly in distress and Silver yearned to comfort her; it occurred to her that the Master was doing something intentionally. Why didn't he ask me to stay and calm her? But she quickly pushed that thought from her mind, for now something else was happening. A flash of blue-green light lit up the hall and she covered her eyes. A female form descended into the fountain with a splash. The girl proceeded to leap from the fountain, and after retrieving her boots, began to race from the hall, muttering something about being mistaken. The Master rose and faced her, moving away from the water-creature, and Silver seized her chance. Quickly and quietly, she made her way over to the fountain, seating herself on the edge. She met the eyes of the strangely stunning creature and bowed her head respectfully. She quickly calmed the girl, for it was indeed a female, soothing her as she had with the Master. Silver reached out to touch the creature's forehead. "I'm Silver," she said softly. She smiled gently. "I like the water as well."

Nitha was quite content to hide in the fountain from everyone, waiting for everyone to find somewhere else to be. She could be patient. For about 15 minutes, when she'd start to be too cold and need to return to her warmer. She lifted up now clean fingers to carefully probe at her ear, feeling the earring the kindstrange one, Kenner, her mind supplied. What disturbed her the most was that it had no clasp, no opening. It was now stuck in her ear permanently, unless she wanted to mangle her lobe in the removal of it. But at the very least, she could now understand what was going on.

It didn't change the fact that she wanted to find a den and sleep for a week. Instead Nitha mollified herself by picking the dirt out from under her fingernails. She'd reached the middle finger of her first hand when she had to finally pay attention to the vibration of somebody coming to sit next to her, at the rim of the pool. She looked up, face frozen in neutrality when the human talked to her. Nitha considered her words as she felt the tension flow out of her. It was like a drink of cool water when too hot, a gentle breeze when feeling stifled, a release of pressure.

"The water is good," she said, and smiled broadly, spreading her hand across her collar bone.
"I am Nitha," she said clearly, before reaching out to place her hand across the other girl's clavicle. "Silver." After a moment, with a mischievious grin Nitha shoved the heel of her palm across the water's surface, forcing some of it to splash up and at the human. Nitha sunk back, coils rolling lazily in the water as she tucked her chin in, eyes and muzzle just visible above the water and eyes sparking. Did humans play?

The creature spoke in a foreign tongue, and Silver felt a look of confusion cross her face. Clearly the girl saw and understood, because she took things down to a more simple level.
"Nitha," the creature said, pointing at herself. "Silver." Silver nodded, and then before she knew what was happening a wave of water hit her smack in the face. Though startled at first, she began to laugh in delight as she leapt into the fountain, (after all, she was already soaked) and splashed back, showering Nitha with water. She then threw her arms around her neck, hoping she wouldn't mind. Silver felt her spirits soar as she stood there playing in the fountain; she felt young and carefree again, playful... the burden of having to grow up long before she had been ready felt lifted from her shoulders in that moment, and she loved it. Her worry faded away, leaving her blissfully calm (for, most unfortunately, her power didn't work on herself).

Kenner

Kenner's face grew wide in a smile when Quinn asked his that question and he tilted his head back as if he was going to laugh. "Oh.. I so do love having such smart company.. it took Jeremy and his brother three guesses." He pulled forward wrapping his arms around her and holding her, his body keeping a slight sway.
He did breath a slight sigh however, as if there was still a problem.

"But.. That answer is one you will not get so easily."

"However I can tell you this, before Pride fell. Life for my kind was not as many of the humans make out to be.. Lets just say that the absence of chains does not mean freedom."
he said as he looked down into her eyes.
With Kenner's concerns about Quinn's fate resolved and the mix between his own staffs ambitions dealt with he felt it was time to end this days ordeals. So in one quick instance the shift came again and the two were pulled off once again into the ether.

The amount of time it took was almost undetectible as they burst back into the holding area for the other slaves. Small particles of dust and the large distortion of air was enough to shake the immediate section of flooring underneath.

As Kenner released Quinn they both stood in the same spot that they both left originally.
He lightly let the little demon go and stepped back giving her a look over "See that's far better.. no more residue as well... well its not completely gone but at least your not going to grow another limb while you sleep." he gripped one of her horns between two fingers and jostled it playfully as he spoke, like an adult talking towards a child.
His moment of playfulness was overturned however as the steps of heels came echoing up behind them.

It was Peeshka as she stopped only a few feet from them with her arms crossed over one another and despite an actual expression of emotion on the dolls mask her stance made it obvious she was rather cross. ~Kenner.. I wonder what is is your up to.~ He gave the leather bodied woman a slight dismissive wave and gave her a smile which did nothing to change her outwards disposition. "Everything is fine Peeshka.. Can you have the guards retrieve the other additions, I think its time for us to turn in a little early this evening." She gave the same stern stance and took several seconds to change, giving Kenner an astute movement of her head to indicate yes. ~Alright Kenner.. as you wish.~ The chorus of mixed childlike voices that pour from her still bear the same air of distinct stress even though she accepts his request.

He looks once again at Quinn and flakes some dust of her shoulder "Do not worry.. she and I have been companions for for almost as long as Iv been.. so down to earth." He gives a slight chuckle as he brings his hand down. "Her mind is colored with centuries of conflict and loneliness.. so if she doesn't warm up to you immediately, it will only take time."

Humans did play! Or at least Silver did, returning the splash and laughing. Some of the cat folk back home while not minding swimming didn't particularly like being splashed. When she threw herself against Nitha, wrapping her arms about her, the Naga was pleasantly surprised. Embraces were common practise for naga and it had been far too long since Nitha had enjoyed such simple contact. She wrapped her arms back around the human and flopped them both in the water, wiggling along the bottom of the pond and creating a bow wave behind her head, keeping the human on top as she wasn't sure how good they were at holding their breath. However, Nitha became aware of something as she released the human and proceeded to bat water at her. After holding the warm blooded mammal, Nitha felt the coolness of the water. She wrinkled her nose at it and then without preamble left the water, leaving a wet trail as she crossed the room to her warmer.

"The water is good, but now I am cold. I must warm." She paused, looking at the cushions on the floor. They were clearly intended for comfort, but she didn't think that they would be very good while dripping wet. She reached out with a damp hand and batted them aside while trying not to land them in the puddle she'd made. Once the path was a little less fraught with pillows, she coiled up on her warmer again. It felt heavenly on her damp scales and she sighed happily, third eye semi lidded as she looked back at the human, her hair now considerably darker with the water. Nitha wondered what it felt like when dry.

She was delighted when the creature returned her embrace, and didn't mind at all when it (she?) dragged Silver under the water playfully, balancing Silver on top. It had been a long time since Silver had felt such gentle, playful contact and she responded to it, continuing to grin and laugh. Eventually, the creature stopped and they both came up to the surface again. The creature got up from the water, seemingly slight distressed.
"The water is good, but now I am cold. I must warm." Silver was a little shocked, for now she could understand what the creature said. Silver nodded and watched as she curled up on her warmer, shivering a little herself. She wrung her hair out over the fountain and then crossed to the creature, snuggling up beside her on the warmer, hoping she didn't mind.
"I do not mean to offend you in any way, but might I ask, what are you?" Silver tried to sound as polite and respectful as she could, her curiosity driving her to inquire at all. She didn't want to ruin this strange friendship; it was all she had at the moment. Silver lay with her back on the warmer, thinking perhaps, if she was always simply left to her own devices, that life here indeed wasn't so bad.

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.

Nitha watched curiously as Silver seemed to squeeze her hair between her hands, removing most of the water. Nitha had wondered how humans coped with such long hair in colder climates, and this seemed to be part of the answer. When the human followed her to the warmer, Nitha simply readjusted her coils to accomodate the female more comfortably for both of them. How did they get anything down with so few joints and such long bones, she thought to herself, poking the human's shin curiously with a finger before Silver addressed her.

"I do not mean to offend you in any way, but might I ask, what are you?"

Nitha stared at her for a moment, blinking. And then her eyes closed almost all the way as she made a strange nickering in her throat. The naga was laughing at her companion, utterly amused at her very sensible and yet utterly ridiculous question.

"I am a person," she teased for a moment, tail tip twitching lazily. "I am a Naga woman. I came far away, my place is very hot, very wet. This place is cold, dry for me." For a moment she continued to look at the girl, then reached out to gently prod her cheek with her thumb.

"What are you? You are human, yes? Female?" she asked.

As soon as the other had finished answering, Nitha's head raised and she looked to the door with a slight frown.

"Many are coming. Many feet. I feel it." she said, watching the door with curiosity. True to the vibrations on the floor and the changing taste on the air, the people who had earlier been in the smaller cells reentered, Kenner at their heels. He spoke to them all and Nitha immediately perked up at the idea of food. She had quite some way to go before regaining her right weight, and food was high on her list. Although some of his words confused her, as she had no idea why she might need to hold tight. Just in case she wrapped her coils tightly around her warmer, arms slinking somewhat possesively around Silver. She wouldn't want anything happening to her new friend.

Silver observed the fight and all that followed from her perch with Nitha, warm and content and not very bothered. The assortment of creatures awed her; she saw many hybrids and feared, briefly, for her safety, hoping that the Master wouldn't let any of them have a go at her. Though she wasn't afraid of a fight, she hadn't been trained and didn't know whether she would have an aptitude for it. If it ever came to that, she hoped her ability to be quick and agile would be of some use.
The mention of food sparked her interest, but Silver was no stranger to hunger and could keep it at bay for quite a while. She watched all the going ons from behind Nitha, peeking over the Naga's coils, only her green eyes visible. The Master seemed agitated, as did the red-clad woman, though seemingly for different reasons. The woman watched the Master with an almost... worry in her eyes, and her stance was somewhat possessive. Based on these observations, Silver assumed that they were lovers, or at least the red woman loved the Master, there was no question about her concern. Silver grew tired of watching and eventually laid her head down, nuzzling Nitha, resting with her cheek on her smooth scales.

Kenner

The look on Kenner's face softened when Quinn replied, it was obvious that she was not used to this at all and he should have at least had patience with her to begin with. But she broke rule and it was not a simple one like fighting, if she had ousted herself about it before hand then the whole incident would have passed with little consequence.
But the fact that she lied to him was weighing heavily on his mind, he so hated being lied to and even in Peeshka's case it took some time for her to realize that it would be wise to stay truthful to him.

Kenner nodded his head as he swallowed back his pride and spoke.. "Fine.. you want privacy, that I can arrange.." He was silent for a moment after that and just stared the young girl down, he hated having to treat others like children. But no matter how old they are in nature the only one within the hall of Raven Loft closer to his age would be Peeshka herself and even she doesn't know how old she is.
Kenner clenched his fingers and help them over his shoulder as if to snap them and he turned his head to the side looking away from both the offending players in the short game and returned for he last time. "I am truly sorry for what is about to happen.. but you both brought it on yourselves." Even though he knew Bloodsong could not really understand what was happening or what he was saying, Kenner snapped his fingers as a signal to Peeshka.

The woman in red leather paused for a moment after his snap and then began to run her hands up her chest towards the center of her neckline. It was there that she revealed a small clasp just below the edge of her mask and when she undid it, the whole chest of her outfit began to unbutton. What revealed itself were not only two mound like protrusions that gave the semblance of breast, but also a long row of clasped teeth that extended from the base of the neck and traveled down past her navel. As she did this Peeshka's body moved as though she were stretching some muscle that had long gone without proper use and with a quick gasp of air the lining of teeth opened to form a large mouth.

The sounds of people screaming could be heard in the back of that great maw and as their calls echoed loader still tendrils of black oozing mass whipped out of the mouth and began to chase down the two slaves. Thought the first thought was to flee from the sight, the appendages were too many and too fast snaking around leg and neck, arm and torso.
Quinn could fight all she wanted but her higher strength afforded her little resolve as the dark tendrils pulled her closer to Peeshka. Even Bloodsong was not going to give in as he jumped with great height to escape but was snatched out of the air like a crippled winged bee in mid summer. He still fought however jerking and twisting, only when he sunk his teeth into the tendril around his left arm did he realize it tasted foul as mulled wine mixed with swamp water.

The two were dragged towards Peeshka's waiting jaws and as Quinn was being pulled up into the teeth she found that they did not pierces, in fact they feeling was soft and transparent like the touch of a brush. She still struggled however and when her legs were being consumed she felt no pain.
Nor did she feel anything, just a cold euphoria of sensation running up and down her legs like something was dancing toe to toe along her extremities. As she peered in should could not see through the darkness of what was inside and only when her waist was in did she recognize such a feeling, her body was being dragged in by the pull of dozens of anxious hands grabbing and groping to find hold and pull. She could only puzzle out the feeling as the rest of her body was jerked in and the Bloodsong was to follow, the same path the same sensations and with a practiced jerk of his legs the young wolfkin passed more quickly.

So now the two were consumed by darkness, an ever present void as with being there they found their minds becoming heavy and their bodies sluggish. Only when full suppression had overtaken them did they cease to fight the darkness and the state of unconsciousness befell them.

* * * *

Roldan looked at the young Neko before him and sighed as she made a good understatement of how she felt about her situation. Even though the she didn't speak he knew that she didn't like the idea of where she was and what was transpiring.
He gave her as best a soft smile as he could and looked to his guardsman.."Take her to the holding area, and make sure she gets fed.. I'll deliver the paperwork back to the office and file everything away." The two men at her side nodded and lightly took Persephone under the arms and walked her down the long hallway so they bring her through the master hall.

It was a short walk for them and the scent of food was beginning to fill the air as they got closer.
Persephone could see a group of people with food entering the room ahead of her from the other door, as she was lead in and released by the guards who slowly closed the gate behind her she could see the whole of the room before her. Peeshka had just finished closing her suit back up and the other slaves were scattered about the room.

It was at this time they could see Evix for the first time, tough most of her outfit covered her body her face was still plainly visible. The dark raven black hair that crested out from her head and the lightly greenish blue scales that covered her face were enough of an indicator that she was reptilian in nature. Her helpers began to ladle food into large wooden bowls and lay then on trays with loafs of bread. Another would place a large canter water on the side with a small bowl of fruit.
As they worked the room began to fill with the aroma of sauced meat and the spice of the broth tickled the nose.

Kenner was still staring at the spot Quinn occupied before the sound of the gate at the other end of the room caught his and Peeshka's attention. He looked at the young Neko walking in with the irons still on her wrist and smirked a small glance at her. Even though the past moments had gotten him down, he could still relish in the fact that it was only for that moment.
As he walked up to Persephone and looked her over he could tell that she had been living in rough conditions before being brought to him. As he reached down and took hold of her hands to lift them up he also undid the latching of her irons. The small bolts snapping easily with a little tug from his fingers, and they to fell to the floor disappearing into a gleam of light. "Go ahead and eat for now, you can breath easy now.. there is a home for you here." He did his best to comfort the look in her eyes, giving the top of her head a rub with his hand and caressing one of her ears as he did so.

He pointed out towards the kitchen staff as they were handing out trays of food to the other slaves.

One of them, a young girl layed out a larger tray with four bowls in front of Nitha as she lay on her warmer. The woman flashed her a nice smile before returning to her work and soon the whole staff was done with their duties and every one of them moved back out the gate after the food was handed out.

The commotion stirred Silver from her peaceful relaxation beside Nitha, and she looked up in time to see both the girl with the horns and a wolf-like man be....eaten? Her fascination with the red woman increased, though now she also felt a slight shiver of horror. She reminded herself never to cross her. But soon the atmosphere eased somewhat as the food arrived, and Silver laughed when she saw the amount provided to Nitha. She thanked the girl that delivered her food, but didn't eat it right away. It was tomato soup, with a side of garlic bread, and she couldn't remember the last time she'd had either.
"Mmm," she said softly, breathing in the smells that now wafted around the room. Silver picked up her spoon and in a very calm and civilized manner, ate the soup until her bowl was bare before descending on the bread and devouring the lot within ten seconds. It would be good for her to gain some weight; optimal, actually. She wouldn't mind a few extra pounds to help her out if it ever came to a fight. When Nitha offered her to try some of her food, Silver thanked her and tried a bite of each, licking her lips. This cooking was sublime, no doubt about it. The thought crossed her mind that she could ask the Master if she could go and help in the kitchens, but she shrunk back from the idea of going near the Master at all. Ideally, he would forget her entirely. She had also grown very fond of the naga and wasn't in any hurry to leave her side. Silver lay back down on the warmer, her clothes now very nearly dry, her hair still slightly damp. Her main goal, she told herself, was to unnoticed.
And yet...
She yearned to show them her fire, that she wasn't some tame human girl.... But of course she couldn't. Why go looking for trouble? Why act out when good behavior was suiting her just fine? No cages, free to move about, no... training. That word alone spooked her and any thought of rebellion fled her mind. Silver stretched out on her stomach, her hair a wave down her back, one side pressed against Nitha, who was still eating. Silver felt a fierce loyalty toward her; she knew she would jump to her defense in an instant. All else aside, the companionship of the naga was an immense and welcome comfort in a place that was still very alien to her.

Full and reasonably content, Silver found herself dozing off. She awoke within five minutes, startled, unsure of where she was. She calmed and stretched out her slender legs, soothed by the warmer on her back. She snuggled closer to Nitha, who was done eating. "How are you, friend?" she asked softly. Silver heard the sound of footsteps and shrunk back behind Nitha, unseen, as the Master and the red-clad woman returned, accompanied by the hyena-girl, wolf-boy, and girl with the horns. Apart from the hyena girl, who was in a dress and looking reasonably content, they didn't look a very joyful lot, least of all the horned girl and the other boy. Silver felt sympathy for them; she had no idea what horrors they might have endured. The Master crouched by them, waving food under their noses. Silver peeked out from behind Nitha's coils, only her bright green eyes visible, looking at them curiously, hoping, but also fearing, she would make eye contact with either the red-clad woman or the Master himself.

"Kenner

After Quinn snatched the bowl from him Kenner stood, she was easily more well off then Bloodsong. Who when Kenner looked over after he scrambled away and his reaction towards Peeshka, he knew something had happened in that place. Turning to look at Peeshka he gave his head a slight lean and questioned.."What did you do?"

She turned her head to look back and even though her face could not be seen, the feeling of eyes followed wherever it pointed.
The words that came out of her might have been somewhat hard to understand for anybody, but Kenner had known her long enough to catch her meaning. ~I let him drink from the river..~ Kenner leaned his head back with a small gap to his eyes as he soaked in her words. Turning back to look at the wolf-kin he gave a slightly solemn stare as he reached forward, picking the bowl off the floor and sliding it towards Bloodsong letting it lay at his feet.

Kenner stood then and looked around at the rest of the slaves in attendance.."Alright, it will be time to sleep soon and tomorrow we all start a new day.. So I suggest you all finish your meals and get to sleep." He and Peeshka walk for the door with the kitchen attendant in tow, to which Kenner speaks again. "The tone will sound in an hour and the lights will dim so be in bed by then."

It was not long after the time that Kenner specified that the tone did sound, a light solid chime emanating from deep and high somewhere from inside Raven Loft.
Some have gone to sleep, while others full from their meal idled off into dreams as they lay in their beds. Hitha lay around the rock instead on on it, the large plush pillows allowed her to fall asleep faster then she would have normally.
While the little girl Silver had curled up and leaned herself against the Naga, a lone thumb perched in her lips and a soft look of grace that came from her dreams.

Nix had her feet barely brushed under the covers of her bed and she was still slightly whimpering in the half cupped moments of her soft breath, sleep had come but it was not without turbulence. While Bloodsong did not gather himself in a bed, instead he had pulled off the wool blanket and two sheets to gather around himself as he lay against the base of a bed. His ears twitched from moment to moment in time with a small smack of his lips, his dreams full with days of uncaring.

Miyako and Persephone slept apart from one another, the space between their beds was slight and the two looked as though mirror images of one another. A leg hung slightly off one side of the bed, while one arm laid flailed out to the other.
Quin was the last of the group to fall into slumber, she sat on her bed for several minutes after the others had drifted off into sleep and she eyed the room with a strange sense of disillusion.
But with all things her lids became heavy and she soon resigned herself to lay down on the covers and fall away. Not even worrying about removing her own boots she just turned over and was pulled away into her dreams.

The young prince Kaede had been lead back to his quarters with the other masters, he however was not so easy to put to rest. Kaede spent some time pacing back and forth at the foot of his bed and wondered about the plethora of slaves to be had outside of his door and what purpose they could be used to serve his intentions most fully.
But the worrying addled his mind for the whole time, it wasn't until after he stopped pacing that his body realized how tired it was and a long forcible yawn broke from his lips and he resigned himself to sleep after preparing for bed.


Kenner sat in his quarters, the chair in his study suited to his needs quite clearly as the head master held a large book in hand. He was not one to sleep so quickly and even then, sleep did not come easy to him and for good reason.
It wasn't until a leather glove began to slip its way around the back of his neck that he began to pay attention once again to his surroundings..~Please Kenner.. you look tired, come to bed..~ Peeshka pulled on with a low tone to her speech. Kenner only turned his head slightly as he looked around to stare into the empty eyes of her mask. "Alright then.. you talked me into it." He replied to her.

She pulled away from him as he stood and the two walked slowly towards the bed and as he laid himself down, he discarded the top of his robe by letting it fall to the floor. Peeshka took a knee on the edge of his bed and started to crawl in after him. The sound of her outfit making exaggerated stretching sounds along the way.
As she climbed up along the bed to his arms and snaked her way in between them she turned to look at him, which made him look back with a strange expression. "You know you shouldn't wear that to bed." He said as he reached up and lightly gripped the sides of her mask, slowly he began to remove the white shell and as it pulled away the dark emptiness of her face was there starring back at him. With the two same pin points of light pointed back at his eyes and with a nudge against him she curled up into his arms with a dejected sigh. They had both had a long day and in the view of things, they were looking forward to the days to follow.

Silver's lids closed softly as sleep took her in his arms, gently tossing her into a land of blissful dreams. Her legs were curled into her chest, making her appear smaller and more delicate than she was, and her dark hair tumbled down her back. The simple white dress she wore made her look a vision of purity and innocence, though any who knew her past would not say the same. Her dreams were many and colorful, playful and meaningless. Swinging ever higher on a rope swing, rolling through lush green meadows, swimming through the sea, a breeze in her face and the subtle taste of salt in her mouth. Her restful, bountiful dreams were left untouched and undisturbed, though she did feel something dark clouded around the edge of her vision at times. Silver had the distinct feeling that not all others had been as lucky as she, and wondered why indeed she had been left at peace. She did not let her mind be weighed down however; she allowed her spirit and mind to soar as she wondered through the joyful scenes of her own subconscious.

Kenner

The morning begins with a resounding tone coursing throughout the halls of Raven Loft as somewhere withing a bell is being struck. The light has begun to crawl up the side of the mountain home and the guards had just finished switching details with their replacements.
The sound of boots trotting down the long hallways and the voices of multitudes of patrons coming from within give the hold a sound of a small city unto itself.


Kenner is the first to be awake from his a Peeshka's rest, though for arguments sake they both find it hard to do such a thing and even more so for her. He had managed to gather a cup of tea from the dinning hall adjacent from his room and was now reaching the bottom of the staircase. He would give and receive the usual greeting from the new guards on watch and passed by into the holding area.

Roldan was already standing in the doorway looking over the slaves with a pad in his hand and taking head count.
"Ah.. good morning Master Kenner" He gave with a slight nod but still did not manage to turn his head completely towards Kenner, a tune to how his head was still in his work.
Kenner gave him a touch on the shoulder as he walked passed."Good morning to you to Roldan, and how are our guest doing this fine morning? He gave as an obvious question.

"Good, as far as I can tell." He answered. "The Maidens should be here in a few minutes to help them prepare and tehn the day should be yours."
Kenner gave a slight smile as he walked on towards the beds and looked on at the slaves.."I trust everyone had a good nights rest.." it was obvious by the looks on the torrent of faces coming his way that it wasn't like that at all, no matter how much his smile tried to smooth things over.

There was a knock on Kaede's chamber door after the rise of the sun and a voice issued from behind to obstruction.. ~Master Kaede, you are invited for breakfast in thirty minutes and Kenner said he will be joining you to discus your intentions.~ Peeshka was sounding rather fulfilled this morning, despite how torrential her speech made things sound.

Kenner

The voices and slight movements abound Kenner made him sure in his mind that the night was not entirely true for the other slaves. His being approached by Quinn did tell him that she was willing to forget what transpired with her and Bloodsong not merely a few hours ago.
He looked at her and took her wrist in his hands, he held them aloft for a moment and looked at her with his same smile. "All in due time Quinn, but for now you need to get readied for this day." he turned his head as the sound of humming began to come from the other gate and he looked back at the others as he released Quinn's arms.

"I understand that most of this is still.. out there.. for most of you, but I will make sure to have everyone attended to and set on your path." the sound of humming becomes slightly louder as he looks back. "Now what happens next I suggest everyone just stay calm and let the maidens do their duties then breakfast will be served." He gives a slight bow as he back out the main gate and exits the holding area.
The approaching sound of the humming tune was growing more and more little footsteps to signal such an approach.

As a guard swings the door ajar several forms enter and begin to spread among the room.
Each is apparently a woman dressed in clean white linens and each carries a set of items, they move in concert with one another and it is noticeable that the humming is coming from each and every one of them. The tune in fact is soothing and crisp with very little wane in its tone. The girls move and break off into small groups of three separating themselves among one slave a group. They bring with them bowls of warm water and towels in hand, while one carries a wooden box in both her hands and they get to work.
They wipe the exposed areas of the body clean and brush hair with a gentle touch, it was obvious that this kind of treatment was more then a usual slave was expecting.

There was another woman there however and she did not work with the others, instead she stood near the center of the room and basked in what was transpiring. She wore a heavy brown linen dress that possessed a cowl much like the other women in the room, it hugged against the sides of her face and left the greying skin of her moth exposed. Dark almost purple lips framed her mouth and the slightly crooked smile was no more inviting then her appearance.
One arm was wrapped around her waist while the other dangled beside her, a gloved hand revealing that she was lacking one of the fingers normally had by other humanoid beings. She stared almost blankly into space, though the same problem with Peeshka remained here as her eyes were not discernibly in view.

While the others worked down below Kenner was about to enter the dinning area after passing by the guards downstairs and sending them onto their assigned duties. He pressed the door open to see Kaede sitting at his side of the table and looking about the room, only to avert his eyes to Kenner when he entered.
A kitchen attendant was standing at the opposite side of the room near the kitchen door and noticed when Kenner entered, he gave her a nod and that was her signal to bring out the food. As he sat he leaned into his seat and looked at Kaede.."I am glad that you chose to meet me for breakfast, not many masters are willing to be up so early in the morning. I did have some other masters as guest a while back and their company was rather disappointing." No sooner then when he finished did several of the kitchen staff come back through the door, they carried platters with cooked sausages and bowls of boiled eggs with dates and other fresh fruit.

As they laid the items down near the center of the table Kenner reached out and took a date, popping it into his mouth and eating it. "I understand you had some questions for me?.."
