Leila Vergious • Golden Phoenix • C Rank
As of late, most of Leila's contracts were on the more serious side of things where she had to deal with actual criminals or solve troublesome problem. In a way, that was making things quite interesting, knowing that her actions were ones that could actually make a difference and help. Though the task didn't sound all that exciting, looking for some misplaced jewelry of sorts. But looking for something like that in town like Hargeon, she could feel the pain of running around the entire day already. The city itself was huge, but at least the couple which wanted those items back only specified one single hotel. It was a start and hopefully they would be indeed there, else there was not much to go on. Not to mention... this whole thing felt somewhat strange. Strange and very nostalgic, almost. The girl already solved many different crimes back in the day so perhaps she was in a similar situation, but... it truly felt as if she had already done this at some point in her life. Shaking that feeling for now, she started her little search there, in a hotel near the city's center. Thankfully, the owner was helpful enough to let her inside of the room the couple was staying in after the entire situation was explained. But no matter how hard she looked and how many places she turned upside down, not a single thing that would resemble expensive jewelry was found. With a rather audible sigh she sat down in the hotel's lobby and started thinking. If she lost it and it was nowhere to be found, maybe someone actually stole it? It would certainly not be the first time something like that happened.
Nodding to herself, she left the hotel and started looking around. In scenario like this one, it was best to search for the low-lives that would exchange useful information for favors or shiny things that could fetch a good price. Working with someone like that would not be her first time either, so she knew what she was looking for. At least somewhat. But the city sure was huge. Even if she knew who she was looking for, it didn't mean that she would find them right away. Even when looking through suspicious dark alleys that normal people stayed far away from, all she found were goons that gave her rather aggressive looks. Deciding to leave them alone, she just rummaged through the trash and moved along to her next stop, almost looking like yet another bum, safe for her fancy outfit. At least the sun was shining warmly today, along with the wind that kept the temperature easily manageable. It was always nice when she managed to get her contract on a good day, being able to walk around freely and without the need to hide from rain or excessive heat. Which should also mean that the urchins would be outside of their hideouts, crawling about some corners of the city. She just had to find them!
