History

Image

"I don't know much about the guy, but he appears to be a bum. A magician, maybe,
but still a bum. Disappeared in a puff of orange smoke, and it reeked of alcohol!
Hey, look, I didn't even talk to the guy. But he did leave behind a card of sorts.
Not exactly sure if it's magical or not, but knowing Gambits and the local folk who
hang around there, it probably is. He called himself Phinny."


-Kethyr Naethus (as played by lostamongtrees) on Phinny


Thinks Jack Kelly (as played by the_sickness) to be a grand fellow, the greatest bartender he's ever seen in Gambits!

Finds Anya Moretti (as played by silverangel_of_light) to be a generous soul, and enjoys her company as well as her taste in wine.

Thinks Serina (as played by silverangel_of_light) is adorable and charming!

Is wary of Blood Hawk (as played by BloodHawkMajor)

So begins...

This eve a shadow was cast in his path, one could tell by his sour expression and shrouded eyes. Pulling the hat even lower, he shifted through the doorway of the bar.
It seemed dead, just how he liked it.

Blast!
He jumped sideways, nearly losing his balance as a whirlwind of what appeared to be pure metal chaos exploded through the door. Eyes replaced with saucers, he stared, mystified, as the blade frenzy spun into a woman. He blinked, and gave his head a small shake, still clutching the wall for dear life.

He eyed the room out of the corner of his eye as he crossed to the bar. There on the ground was a bottle he should best avoid if he didn't want to trip, was it rolling around on its own? Hmm..

He took a seat at the bar, nestling in all by himself with a frown on his face. He could hear more people arriving behind him.

Merphin Dazzle couldn't help but notice the sound of pen on paper, or the group of guards that had entered and situated themselves. Silently, he turned facing forward fully towards the bar, drumming his fingers on the bar top. Life seemed to be breathing back into this place. He was undecided in opinion on it.

His ear pricked, what was that noise? It was kind of annoying. It sounded like a voice!
He looked around, and pinpointed the sound to be coming from none other than that bottle from earlier. Strange, he thought to himself. Merph wondered if he should examine it.

Perching, he was, on the edge of a cliff, listening to the murmur of the valley below. The trees were speaking to him, whispering promises of paradise and sweet illusions. Gently, he swung his feet over the valley, the tips of pines tickling his seemingly large feet. They seemed to be getting heavier, but he barely noticed for the valley was growing more beautiful. Literally, the leaves that lined the stark blue river were blushing, transforming the valley into a fiery sea. It was practically singing to him now, the valley, and he reached forward towards it. Reached, reached, and suddenly he tumbled forward off of the rock. It was as if he was perched on the cloud, he had such a long way to fall. He fell, down towards the earth, down, down, faster, faster-

Nyeh-guh!
He banged his knees on the table as he erupted from his dream. Practically gasping for air, he looked wildly around the bar, then back at his limbs, examining his hands. They were so big, and heavy! But that was in the dream.

Calm down, he told himself, and signaled for a shot. Shifting back and stretching his legs, he flicked his eyes over to the bar, wondering to hell what time it was.

Unmushing his hat, he speculated about the time. It couldn't be too late, or this place would be packed. It wasn't too early, there were no spillovers left from the night before.

Glancing back towards the bar again, he noticed a slight change of atmosphere. A white collar redhead, it looked, had joined the crowd at gambits. Hm, he couldn't help but smile, as he watched the guy order a drink.

Jamming the hat on his head, he leaned forward over the table, drumming his fingers, darting glances back at the only other living soul in the establishment.

Oh feck, he darned himself, the guy caught him looking! With a sigh, he bounced in place, drumming on the table and tapping at the floor. Here comes my shot, he lowered his hat to shade his eyes, smiling at the approaching torso and legs bearing a bottle and a glass.

"You read my mind," He grinned up, downing the shot and slamming the glass on the table. Pouring himself another shot, he wondered what to do. He was awfully bored. After another three gulps, Phinny decided it was right about time to approach the other guy, and he slapped on a cheerful grin.

"Afternoon, or is it still morn'?" He slid onto the bar stool next to the ginger haired stranger. Flashing a cheesy grin, he placed the bottle of alcohol on the bar top. The guy was downing his drink, which made Merphin smile even wider. Seems he had stumbled across another partier, like himself!

poured himself another shot, and signaled for a second glass. He wasn't about to let this guy get away!

Hmmm... The guy wouldn't even look at him. Pouring a second shot, Merphin slid it towards the guy. Simultaneously, he reached a hand up and slithered it behind the guy's ear. Snapping his fingers, he jerked his hand back, now holding a blank playing card.

"Tada!"

Staring downwards, and obviously not looking where he was going, he stepped through the door of Gambits. His mind was elsewhere, that was for certain.

Merphin Dazzle noticed a glimmer out of the corner of his eye, and raised his head to see a woman raising a glass and smiling at him. A wicked smile crept onto his face, as he straightened his back and adjusted his hat. With a small wave, he set off towards her.

He crossed the bar, and slid in to a seat next to Anya, still smiling deviously with a twinkle in his eye.
"Why... Hello there!" He said with a slight wiggle of his brows, lounging ever so slightly on the bar.

"Merphin Dazzle!" He said with a hat tip, flicking it off of his head and rolling it down his arm. Placing it on the bar, he shot a smile to her.
"And you, fine gem?" He asked Anya, reaching for her hand to kiss it.

Gently taking her hand, he flourished, hopping out of his seat and almost down on one knee. Bending low to kiss the back of Anya's hand,he shot her a wink, pecking her skin. Releasing her fingers, he flourished again, and hopped back onto his seat.
"Pleased to meet you."

"Please, call me Phinny," He smiled, "And oh I do so love the rum!" He ordered a shot of rum, gave the lady a wink, and ordered another for her.
"And what is a fine china such as yourself doing in a cupboard like this?" he joked, still smiling at Anya

His eyes widened, as he shot a look around the bar. Eyeballing everyone else, he speculated the evil that could potentially lurk inside their noggins. They could be killers! Or worse...

"Nowhere at all?" Phinny raised an eyebrow at her, before turning to address the bartender. Smiling brightly at the two shots, he reached into his suit coat pocket. Unzipping a pocket, he rummaged inside for some currency. Closing his hand around a bunch of the stuff, Phinny fished it all out of the pocket. He winked at the bartender as he slid the money towards him.

"Is that enough?"

He sighed along with Anya, imagination taking off at the word 'princess'

"You're Royal Highness majesty," He pronounced as his grin crept from ear to ear, "Princess Anya! Of what may I ask?" He flashed his eyes at her, before spinning on his seat to face the bartender. Throwing his wrists in the air, he grabbed up the shots, moving one towards Anya and whisking up the other.

"Cheers!" He said, winking at the bartender, and downing the shot. As the liquor poured down his throat, a warmth spread over him. Phinny put the shot back on the counter.

"Another shot, good man?" he asked the bartender as he dug through his pocket for more money.

Phinny closed his eyes and rocked his head back in a nod of understanding. Italian Mafia, it made perfect sense now! Smiling, he watched as she knocked back her shot, then flicked his gaze to the bartender.
What a neat trick!

Ohoho! "Touche!," He said, eyeballing the bottle. Picking up his shot, he held it to the air, toasting to nothing in particular and knocking it back. Out of the corner of his ear, he heard the words "leper colony and all you can eat bar," and did his best not to choke on the laughter that bubbled in his throat.

Phinny grabbed up the bottle and cradled it in his arm like a baby.

"I shall cherish it forever," He stated wistfully, batting his eyes like he was blinking back tears, staring off into nowhere for a moment. But then his devilish grin returned, as he swiftly uncapped the bottle and poured himself another shot. He slid his gaze towards Anya.
"Anything you do have taste for?" picking up the shot, he raised a brow at her, swilling the liquid around the glass.

"Yes, yes, you Italian girls, always whining about your wine," He grinned again at Anya, swallowed the shot and blinked back tears for real. Strong stuff! Uncapping the bottle yet again, he decided to take his next shot straight. Completely disbanding his use of the glass, he gulped down some alcohol, shaking his head as he surfaced. Nothing to make it weak than to treat it like water!

"Bureally," He drawled out to Anya, his mouth still recovering, "Wine's fabulous."

"You're not cheap stuff either, darling!" He spurted, bursting into hysterical laughter. Oh, what great fun! But perhaps he should slow down. He calmed himself, turning his twinkling gaze on Anya.

"You're abshotutely right," Phinny smiled. holding up a finger. He again fished through his pockets, pulling out another wad of money and placing it on the counter.
"Your Finet Swine!" He called to the bartender, oh dear, perhaps he should slow down!

His fitted black suit coat was haphazardly buttoned, it only made him seem all the more bewildered as he entered Gambits. Locking eyes with his target, the rum, Phinny started off towards it. Uneven gait, jammed on fedora, his lopsided smirk completed the look.

Approaching the bar, he hopped into a seat and spun around to face the room, hat pulled low over his eyes. With a devilish curve to his mouth, Phinny stared down the other customers like one would stare down prey. He spotted a blond, and averted his eyes, then sneaked another look at her.

Merphin Dazzle couldn't help but notice the cloaked man with the glowing eyes enter the bar. He also couldn't help but wonder how the guy was doing that? Surely he wasn't wearing glasses or goggles or anything of that sort. He placed a finger on his chin, peering at the guy, theorizing in his head.

But then he saw Serina looking at him from the corner of his eye. His first response was to rapidly avert his eyes, flashing up all five of his fingers to shield his face. Flustering, he closed his hand into a fist, looking over his shoulder towards the girl. Smiling, he raised a hand and beckoned her, his finger waggling like a charmed snake.
