    "Actually, that's a good idea." He hummed. "However, even though I've known this place for a long time I have no idea where they keep their cleaning supplies and as much as I'd like to go and explore, it would be rude to leave guests unattended." After all, it seemed like his companions were a bit occupied and he was the only one available as of the moment. When his offer of drinks were turned down, he nodded his head and turned around, deciding he himself would have a drink. He grabbed a bottle of wine that had some dust gathering on the surface, brushing them off and checking the label. It was unopened and it smelled quite nice. Grabbing a glass for himself, he placed it down on the counter and popped open the bottle and proceeded to pour himself a drink.

    "Whatever he said. It looks like I'll have some trouble casting big spells that require time to form. Unless their reaction time isn't that good." She frowned a bit, glancing over to Murray and nodding her head. "That's right. It would be a hassle to deal with them, especially since most of them are armed." She grabbed the reigns of her horse and began to walk, allowing her hand to fall so that it wouldn't be too suspicious. Though she knew that Murray was right, threatening the safety of children made her grimace a bit. However effective it was, she didn't exactly like the idea. Though if it came down to it, she wouldn't hesitate to do what she had to; it was her current mission after all. Hopefully she wouldn't be forced to do such a gruesome thing. "I supppose so. Threatening innocent children would be effective." That sounded a lot less sarcastic in her head, but she meant no offense at all. As she eyed the trucks that passed, she wondered if ore was the main source of income in Norkatia. She didn't know much about the place other than what she was informed, and she was a bit disappointed she couldn't explore as she liked. Oh well, maybe in the next town over. The next information they gathered of the sheriff, she relayed back to base through the earpiece. "It looks like they're sure to patrol the area well. Though it wouldn't be that hard to pass by only a few people in multiple areas than a multiple people in one area." As she believed. As she noticed the day slowly beginning to end, she glanced at Murray then began to speak. "How much more information do you guys requre? We'll be needing a place to stay if this goes on any further."

    A laugh bubbled in his throat as the man commented on his topless attire, shooting him a wink and a playful smirk. "Neither, but a private show might insue." His words were teasing and suggestive, making him snicker at his own words. Walking over behind the counter, and leaned forward and placed his elbows on the table, propping his chin on a hand. "It becomes a hassle to put on and take off a shirt when you're constantly using your wings to clean up the place." He curled a wing around himself, running his fingers through the feathers and brushing off the dust that had collected on it. He was going to have to groom them again later. "Would you like some refreshments? We offer a variety depending on your tastes and the strength of the alcohol that you would prefer." He stood straight and crossed his arms. @Enk Razorwood

    So--This might be an odd question but I don't understand what Murray just said-- "When the firefight breaks out, we'll need to make sure we don't get bogged down with the townsfolk, because these guys look like they could cause us some problems." Who are is he talking about? The townsfolk or the mercenaries?

    She would be lying if she said his praise didn't make her feel a bit proud of herself. She shook her head, chuckling a bit. "It's no worries. I find it cute how you find something this common in our world fascinating." She returned the fistbump with one of her own, going along with his antics. She was surprised when he took out some salt, however and took it with a hum. "Thank you, this would come in handy. I won't waste it now, however in the near future I'm sure it will be of use." She slipped the tiny pouch into her messenger bag then took a rest for now. Her interest was piqued by the sudden appearance of a flute she had never seen before. She hummed in interest, nodding and motioning for him to go ahead an play. The melody he played was simply delightful and she found herself nodding along. "You have nice taste." She grinned, humming a small part under her breath despite the fact that the song had been long since over. "Mind playing another one?" With her request, she leaned back against the boulder from before, stretching her arms above her with a quiet groan. Her bones popped in all the right places and she sighed in relief once she placed her arms down. She doesn't think she'll be able to sleep peacefully tonight, but she was a bit glad that she hadn't paid the bartender yet for the night in a bed that she had been wanting. That would've been a good waste of money.

    Dahlia wasn’t so keen on getting paired up with someone who she liked to think she wouldn’t get along with, but for now she’ll keep quiet. Taking the earpiece, she slipped it past her golden hair and place it neatly in her ear, taking a moment to fiddle with it. She needed to make sure it wouldn’t fall off while they were travelling or that would be bad. Nodding her head, she left to a separate area where she could change in peace. She wasn’t sure where she should place her robes, so instead she decided to rearrange her stuff and slip it in. It was compact and it made it hard to close it but it worked. She decided to leave her hat hanging on a hook that was on a wall. She wasn’t as worried for it as she was with her robes, so she could take the risk of loosing it. Once she was done and ready to go, she headed back to the room and her and Murray were off to investigate. While the horses were trotting down the path, her eyes flickered around in curiosity and wonder. She had never seen a place so bland and so frail. Maybe she didn’t need much power here. It looked like maybe if she started a small fire or caused a fairly large tree to overgrow nearby or inside one of the establishments, it would be enough to stir some fear in the hearts of the people. For now however, she observed. She wasn’t a fan of the theme of the place. She was more of a nature-loving person and this definitely wasn’t her style. She wasn’t here to judge the town though. She was here to judge everyone in it—Well, maybe not. Her lips settled into a thin line at the sight of the rundown horse stable and hopped off the horse, grabbing its reigns. Seems like she gets to spend more time with her new friend. Her eyes flitted around the place as she reached up and pressed the button on her earpiece, beginning to describe what she saw. “Most people have pistols here as previously mentioned. Though the women, children and other townsfolk had none, most probably the lower class.” She spoke slowly and clearly, knowing that the signal wasn’t the best from the static she was hearing. She glanced over at Murray then turned her attention to her horse, gently beginning to stroke its cheek as she continued to speak. “I’ve spotted someone with a silver star on his vest take a look at us but it doesn’t seem like he suspects anything at all.” She was about to end her report when the four men came, catching her interest. She paused for a few moments, averting her gaze and instead watching them from the corner of her eye, she waited till they were out of sight before continuing to speak. “Four men just rode via jeep and stopped by what looked like a payroll office. Armed, all wearing a blue cap and a blue vest. I don’t know what kind of weapons they carried other than the fact it was some type of gun.”

    As they ran she constantly checked over her shoulder, a bit paranoid that the vines wouldn't be able to fully hold their pursuers long enough for them to escape. It wasn't only until the time that they managed to safely arrive at a ravine next to a waterfall that she was finally able to breath a sigh of relief and relax. For now at least. First, she needed to do something. She helped the swordsman gather some firewood and light the fire itself as the night got dark. She took a seat on a rock across from him on the other side of the campfire, sighing. "From what I have observed, this looked like the works of some dark beings. You've noticed the dark and heavy atmosphere, haven't you? I think they're all being possessed by dark spirits who are under the command of those robed people we saw." Placing her staff and her hat on the side, she began to rummage through the pouch that was strapped on to her belt, taking out a few crystals. They were an Amethyst, a Calcite, and a Quarts, and they were moderately big chunks of them. "I need to perform a rituals to make sure they wouldn't find us through the heavy energy laying around, as well as to make sure neither of us would get turned into mind slaves to those people." Standing up, she grabbed her staff off of the ground and closed her eyes. She began to mumbled soft words underneath her breath in another language it seemed. She began to slowly walk around the campfire, the flames seeming to avoid her wherever she stood. Her staff glowed a soft golden hue, and the crystals seem to shimmer. Her words began to quickly become louder and louder, yet still incomprehensible. She was speaking an old language; a dead tongue that only a few people much like herself are aware of. The flames soon began to grow attracted to her, almost licking the side of her arm. Suddenly, she stopped. "Καθαρίζω, Θεραπεύω, Προστατεύω!" She threw the crystals into the flames, making it burst and roar. The flames turned a slightly greenish hue as the atmosphere grew lighter, and one would feel rejuvenated depending on how close they were to the flames. She heaved a sigh of relief, the flames slowly settling down and returning to normal. She sat down once again at her original position, leaning back against the rock. "I cleansed the place, but it wouldn't be effective for long. I lack the salt that is vital for cleansing, so this will have to do."

    Dahlia considered the three jobs that were laid down in front of them. The assassination team was quickly taken by her two female companions, so she only had the choice of either the recon team, or the first contact. Now, it wasn’t as if she couldn’t be brutal. She had been sent to do a lot of dirty jobs before in her old job as the right hand man of a prince, but with her magic on the low she wasn’t quite sure whether it was a good idea. Though if she sent down a strike of lightning she wasn’t doubting the fact that it would hurt on the first people that would come in contact with it. Now a question suddenly popped up in her head. How well do people actually defend against magic? Now that was something she’d like to test out. But for now, she had ultimately decided to go for recon. Before she could speak up, however, someone that went by the name ‘Murray’ had beat her to it. Her face remained impassive as the male spoke, considering his words and deciding that he certainly wasn’t familiar with the way things went around. “If we were to do things the way the townspeople are familiar with, we can expect immediate retaliation and defensive measures.” She spoke up, gazing at the man. “It would throw them off guard if we do it in a way that they would have never expected, or in a way that they haven’t experienced before.” She left her words to linger a bit, just something for people to consider for their next course of actions. “I am able to deal damage to multiple targets and have a lot of spells that are good for crowd control, however since Norkatia lacks the magic that would usually be present in different places and they have guns that could reach me before I am able to properly cast a spell, I'm quite uncertain if I would be able to be as effective. With that, I’d like to volunteer as recon. I’ll just… change my clothes since I stand out a lot.” She consciously tugged on her robe. Her robe was made from a special type of leather from a creature of fire, making her immune to any sort of flames just as long as it doesn’t directly hit her skin. She wasn’t exactly comfortable with the thought, too because that would also mean she would have to walk without her staff in hand, but she could manage. She had a small trick up her sleeve where she wouldn’t have to walk nor leave it behind. But that wasn’t her only main concern. Yes, she wore a dress underneath all her clothing that was modest and simple enough to be able to blend in with the locals, but she was what people would call a prude. She wasn’t exactly a fan of the thought of wearing such a revealing dress that wasn’t even revealing in the slightest. "Though if it would suit the situation better, I'll stay behind for the first contact."

    Don't worry, it's not that necessary. I had just thought of something that might've made her more useful, but it came with its hindrances as well.

    Quick question Is it still possible for Dahlia to request a weapon? Like a bow and a quiver with arrows?

    It took al in her not to instinctively conjure a barrier around herself at the loud bang, grimacing as the loud noise left a ringing in her ears. She lightly rubbed them, grimacing a bit. She mumbled soft words underneath her breath, incomprehensible and definitely not English. It was so that whoever just got shot didn't follow nor linger around, and hopefully just went straight to hell. She waited for further announcements, perking up at the mention if transportation. It would help to maybe have a motor, but as they mentione motor vehicles aren't exactly common all over the world. A horse would do. Once they were left alone, she suddenly felt a bit intimidated once more. Though she didn't let it affect her and kept her face calm, turning to face her companions for this particular mission. She took a moment to look over the more particularly noticeable one. Obviously, they came from lands farther than the outskirts of the town. "I don't believe we've passed around names quite yet." She started. "Just so we would know who's being addressed and make communications easier. "I'm Dahlia Gloomwood. A witch." She gave a small bow, something done out of habit more than purposely. Having previously served a royal family, it had stuck with her. She then gave the floor to whoever decided to speak up next, taking note of their names and faces becaus God knows how horrible she was ar remembering names. She wanted to take a quick peek at their auras too, and wondered if they'd mind. Or notice. Whichever. Subtly, her eyes fell half-lidded, her staff glowing just a tad bit brighter that only a sharp eye would notice.
