The demon had found a way to get a pretty good amount of money to his crew, Black Sails again. This time it required him to do something a bit different than his usual jobs where he just forced his way into things and fought his way through any conflict. He was to go to the Serene Cliffs where a war between two groups was a about to break out and find a way of stopping it. Both groups had set up fortifications in the Serene Cliffs just so that they could fight each other to the death which the area they had chose to do it in was not the place for that at all. It was a place meant for peace and tranquility. Not one where it was for animosity and bloodshed. This naturally left the Magic Council wanting the entire battle prevented and stopped but they could not do it themselves because it could cause more animosity between both sides with them blaming each other for having the Magic Council brought in to deal with the other side which could possibly cause an even bigger battle. So the Magic Council wanted to hire a mage or more to go an do what they could to prevent things from escalating even more. They hoped that this would solve the issue and were actually paying a good amount of jewel to see it happen. Thing was, they were pressed for time and did not exactly look for the best mediators for the job which lead to the people they did send either joining a side or giving up in trying in the end. So that lead to Cirven taking up the job and making an attempt to do what others had failed at and because he was proven to be stronger than most of those they had sent in the past through his past jobs, the Magic Council knew they did not have to worry about him being bullied into joining a side or leaving which made him a welcome recipient for the job.
The job would be a sort of first for him as he had never been a mediator at all but he was going to try to do it. He knew how grudges and revenge could cause a life time of turmoil for all those involved and wanted to possibly help some others avoid such a fate for themselves but he didn't exactly think he could do it alone so he had called on the help of his partner and newfound friend, Noheme. She was a goddess so he hoped that she had some sort of way with words and dealing with disputes that he could not have. Thing is, he second guessed it all when he thought about how she did not know much about any of the workings of the world of Earthland and was still learning things.
He didn't really have many others he could go to though so he decided to count his loses and find a way of getting a hold of the goddess. He knew that she had a bird follow him around, well not exactly follow because it kept a awkward distance away from him and tried to not be seen so it was more like it stalked him. He needed to find a way to get the bird and use it as some sort of way to talk to her. He went about this by running into one of the many forest areas near Serene Cliff and making the bird move around quicker than it was possibly used to. He then made it travel around tree after tree and corner after corner until he was able to temporarily lose it. He jumped up into the trees and used the ability he had to increase his speed as he traveled backwards and towards the area the bird should have been coming from. He caught sight of it and quickly charged towards it. The bird realized what was going on and tried to get away but it was too late because Cirven managed to catch it in his hand and use his static cling spell to keep it stuck to his hand. "How the hell does this thing work..." He mumbled out loud as he looked over the winged creature. He then decided to just look it in its face and yell while hoping for the best.
He took in a deep breath and yelled out at the bird's face. "HEY! I NEED YOUR HELP! GET OVER HERE!" He did not know if the yelling would work so he then continued to move the bird all around and look over it to see if it had anything weird on it like a random button-like piece of flesh or something in order to reach his partner but did not manage to find anything peculiar on the creature.
