As she stepped onto the stone path of Rose Garden's streets, Kanix couldn't help, but look around at her surroundings. She could feel the aura of lacrima magic coursing through the place, igniting the street lamps that were lit aglow with a calming yellow light. A brief smile settled on her lips, as she enjoyed feeling the sensation of welcome run through her body. However, the smile disappeared instantly and she continued forth on her quest to run across one of the guards in town. Perhaps, they would be able to explain to her something of what was going on before she really delved deep into the job. What she really wanted was at least some sort of detail or hints on where she would be able to start her search.
Kanix had gotten lost in her thought over the job, worrying over how she was supposed to find this killer, and nearly bumped into one of the guardsmen.
"Hey, watch where you're going, lady!
" the guardsmen ordered from her, but the expression on his face changed and he bowed toward. "My apologies, Miss, I didn't realize you weren't able to see. Please, forgive me; I won't make that mistake again!
"It's quite all right, Sir; do you mind if I get a feel of what you look like?
" Kanix requested, reaching a hand forward to place it on the man's face. "I'm looking for one of the palace guardsmen; they say that there's a castle killer around and I am here to help out.
"Feel free to... Oh! Well, Ma'am, I'm one of those castle guards. I can escort you to the palace grounds while you're here,
" the guard responded.
"That would be quite kind of you, Sir,
" she answered the guard, running her fingertips over the man's facial features.
A strong jawline, squared it felt like to her, running toward a pointy chin, and decorated with thin, small lips. High cheekbones, a hooked nose that was thin and long, much like a witch's, and beady, rounded eyes. Large forehead, a hairline pulled back, but the rest of his face happened to be disguised by a metallic helmet. Kanix dropped her hand to her side and smiled at him again, then extended her hand again, so that he could take it. When he did, the duo set off toward the castle, so that she was able to meet the duke that owned it and learn a bit more about the job.
