**Alphonsine, Alexis and Herschell...and Pugsly, were let into their carriage, which soon began moving.**
The adults inside were
> An oscaran guardsman with an easy grin and silver and black leather armor.
The children inside were
> An imperious little atarin boy of around 11, dressed in silver and gold finery. (Amar Alphatide)
> A quiet and sullen blond human boy of around 12, trying hard not to make eye contact with anyone, dressed in loose linens and leathers and wearing gloves for some reason. (Dian Hyde)
> A precocious little human girl with long red hair, 9 but tall for her age, dressed in a silk shirt and long woven skirt. (Amelia Etang)
> A 17 year old kindir boy, his features stern and watchful and framed by ear-length black hair, dressed in leather armor. (Gewahlt Beartooth)
> A nadrask girl of around 15, a long red mohawk covering half her face, which was pixish and utterly at odds with her haughty demeanor. She was dressed in red silk and black leather, with tattoos resembling a full moon with a crescent moon shape cut out from its center. (Alespry'Dal aka Pryde)
"Oh, I traded for this little guy from a merchant I met in Elexia. Cost a pretty penny but I just had to have him! [Baby voice] Oh yes I did! Who's the little guy I just couldn't turn down? It's you! It's you!"
Alphonsine - They were made for my ancestors. What I wear right now is actually a jigsaw of pieces of multiple armor sets, pieced together for fit and to give my a variety of rather minor enchantments. Luckily there were all made to look the same so they don't look piecemeal.
"Aren't they? I once had a very long discussion about the minutiae of property rights and how they changed over the past two centuries in both of Sylvan's locales with someone who lived through them. Indeed, was involved with changing some of them."
Alexis rose to her feet and stretched both arms over her head, releasing a few cracks from her spine. She shook her hands out and immediately reached for a cigarette, this ride was too long for her not to smoke and at that moment the jakari was more excited for nicotine than for whatever adventure awaited.
Alexis- Ha! I've learned more about the law talking to finicky vampire nobles than in all my time as a Peacekeeper, although I'd be lying if I said I found property and contract law nearly as interesting. Will we be stopping for a little food and drink while were hear? I'd be happy to by that handsome kindir boy his first drink.
The woman smiled at the boys response, peering her head slightly closer to the seated kindir as her eyebrows perked up in interest.
Alexis- My my I thought kinder weren't supposed to consume alcohol, are you some kind of troublemaker or something interesting of the sort? Oh and for the record, the names Alexis but you can call me whatever you please... so long as it isn't Ma'am.
Alexis- While I never cared to see what the highland had to offer a Jakari woman, I assume that the tolerance and reverence of the almighty coin are preferable to whatever the ethnic cloisters of other lands claim to offer in ways of tradition and community. Do you agree or do my ramblings come across as an ignorant sense of superiority?
