There seemed to be some kind of issue happening between two of the guests, but Cirven had already gone to take care of that. Since she knew neither one and she was in a fully different form she doubted that it was of much relevance to her, so instead of focusing on that she just kept it in the back of her mind in case she heard something that demanded her direct attention. There was some yelling involved though, so with some luck Cirven could keep that from escalating further. Akeya would be annoyed if she had to change back to her usual form because some people immediately got into a fight which just kept escalating when the party hadn't even lasted an hour yet.
When she saw Cirven return to Julius's side Akeya nodded slightly, tapping her long tail with one finger. Looks like that issue was resolved. Maybe she could try and get some information about what happened later, although she doubted that she would get a lot of directly useful information out of it... Especially since the only one who knew her was Cirven, and he was only involved to make sure it didn't get out of hand.
Beyond that there was the girl who was bleeding acid, which Akeya found worth noting, narrowing her eyes so her long lashes would make it hard for people to see what exactly she was looking at she studied the woman in the suit a bit more. While she wasn't close enough to get a very thorough impression it didn't take much studying for her to notice that the woman wasn't exactly normal, even if you didn't take into account the acid blood. For one thing Akeya was smelling iron... Although in all fairness the woman was wearing a suit... Akeya closed her eyes as she considered this. The fact that there were people in the way and the fact that she had made herself so large meant that getting a good look would be difficult. The best she could say now was that if the opportunity arose she'd get a closer look, and that it would be silly to treat the suit wearer as your average person.
A lot of people were gathering around the host of this evening, Julius of Black Sails. Akeya couldn't hear anything of interest from there: it looked like they were simply using this event for its intended purpose, namely socialize and having fun. Which was all fine and dandy, but it meant that for Akeya there was little reason to pay a lot of attention to them aside from the basic level of wariness in case something did happen.
Akeya opened her eyes when she heard another sound. Once you got used to paying attention to the world around you with your ears you could notice some things very easily, such as the sound of someone falling. Looking over she spotted Hana, who she had trained with some time in the past, having been caught by someone else before she actually hit the ground. Considering that Hana wasn't exactly the helpless clumsy girl who'd fall all on her own, and that she was in one of the busier parts of the event hall, and Akeya was going to guess she had trouble dealing with the crowd. Not exactly her concern exactly since someone had already helped Hana, but still... Hana had asked her to help with learning Shadow Dragon Magic, which Akeya had done. Which meant that Akeya had reason to see Hana make a good impression, and little reason to rejoice over her misfortune. Flicking the tip of her tail Akeya lowered herself a bit deeper into her coils, her mouth hidden behind the scales of her tail as she whispered something.
Hana would hear Akeya's voice directly spoken into her ear. Soft but with the same matter of fact tone of voice as always.
"It is good training to create a mental map of your surroundings using all of your senses, with shadow sense filling in the gap of vision for the areas where your eyes can't reach, either because it's behind you or hidden behind something. Even if you have dragon magic you're still human, so you should have an easier time creating that map when you use the shadows as well, since they're easier to visualize than sound and smell. Get used to that and you can keep it in the back of your mind to prevent being caught off guard."
With that done Akeya raised her head a bit higher, acting as if she had merely shifted position. She was a fair distance from Hana and used a shadow to pass the message into Hana's ear, so the girl shouldn't be able to accurately guess where the voice had come from. Combined with Akeya looking nothing like what Hana knew her as and the ice shadow dragon shouldn't suspect the large lamia lounging a bit away from the crowd.
Spotting something very... blue... in the corner of her eye Akeya turned towards the entrance, although instead of an abrupt motion she instead leisurely swept her gaze across the room, not letting her eyes linger on the person she actually was focusing on. Akryn never had been very subtle. It seemed he hadn't noticed her yet, which wasn't too surprising: he didn't know this form any more than Hana did. Waiting for the djinn to approach the refreshment table Akeya gave him about a minute before uncoiling, her long serpentine body moving its way through the hall while avoiding everyone as much as possible. Being a large lamia she had good reason to stay away from crowds: people might step on her tail, and she might push people or just creep them out with the large tail.
Once she was at the refreshments she stayed a couple of yards away from Akryn, grabbing a glass of wine before rising up and settling back, the lamia variant of a relaxed stance.
"A nice party, iss it not?"
She spoke with a bit of a hiss, changing her voice a bit so Akryn wouldn't immediately guess that it was her. From Akryn's position he'd just see that a large lamia with red eyes, black hair, pale skin, dark scales and gold decorations had joined him to grab a drink.
