Hargeon town was certain great place to live, especially if you were well versed in trade or just liked seafood. Even though the city was still in shambles, which was quite surprising considering the man force and power of magical constructs that worked hard on returning this place to it's original glory. But alas, it's residence would have to wait still, as there was much more work to be done. Even Noheme was thinking about helping at one point or another, but her skills were required elsewhere. Or perhaps it was just the fact that she was not exactly in the mood to be helping others recently. The reason was pretty obvious to anyone who would know what had transpired on one of her latest missions, but completely unknown to other as the girl was not exactly the type to share information like that without reason. Still, she was a magician and with a new source of motivation, she was here to help yet another noble who wished to recover some of his lost goods. Apparently something rather strange was found in this palce after the city itself was destroyed and then taken back. A door, if the moon goddess understood it correctly. Door that would lead down into the underground, something terrible and sinister that lied beneath the city. Quite strange, you would think that people made sure to not build something this big on top of ancient burial site or whatever it was supposed to be. Not only that, several brave individuals already attempted to explore this newly discovered place, but none of them returned yet. Just another reason for the venomous goddess to take this task, as her power was far greater than whatever regular mages could do. She would explore this darkness filled place and stop whatever was inside there for good, making it safe for everyone else and the town in the process.
Though as she and another figure behind her approached the place where this door apparently was, it quickly became apparent that guards were already taking care of it too. Or was it police? She honestly wasn't able to tell anymore as an armed figure in shining armor stopped her. "Excuse me miss, but this area is off limits. We received reports of missing people and we cannot afford to loose any more bystanders." Noheme could only give him an annoyed look. Could he not feel her magical energy? Did he not recognize her even after she did so many heroic things, saving even the whole world at some point? Well, she did kinda do it in place where none would see her, but still! Did anyone even know who she was? Suddenly, she felt kinda depressed. Even though she walked Earthland for this long and grew much stronger in the process, people were still oblivious to the goddess. Thankfully there was yet another unnatural being behind the fox girl who peeked at the soldier. "Good morning sir! We're mages tasked to investigate this place, not bystanders. You don't have to worry about us!" After seeing Leila, the man suddenly grew much more tense. It almost appeared as if he knew her, and he indeed did, as he quickly saluted out of nowhere. "Miss Leila Vergious, one of the ex-Rising Stars! I did not notice you at first, please accept my apologies! Please, go on ahead!" And just like that, he would step to the side and clear up the path forward. The moon goddess could only look her sister in disbelief, though she only replied with a shrug. "Guess the position finally paid off. I wonder if Hero spread a word about me once I disappeared... our last conversation was me complaining that no one knew about me as well."
