Fiore was a tremendously large place, a country filled with large towns that were brimming with daily life. Towns like Magnolia or Hargeon which attracted all kinds of people from all across the continent, or smaller ones were daily life went on undisturbed at its own pace. Or so Dahau thought.
As he and some of the Savages were setting up camp near an old mining entrance, the night sky around them got suddenly lit up with small moving dots of lights. Obviously torches, and many of them. Which was strange, there were no big groups of bandits or anything alike around these parts. Only a small village not worthy of anyone's attention, yet somehow it appeared to be very lively tonight.
One of the Savages had already put his hand on the hilt of his sword, while another summoned forth a ghastly looking familiar in the form of a wolf. 'Sir, should we check it out? Trying to see what is going on here?' Said the first one, eagerly to make some sort of reputation for himself.
'Yes, go ahead, report to me when you find anything interesting' he responded. While gazing at the flickering lights in the distance. They weren't so close yet, but still not far enough for Dahau to sense the number of people. It was a mob of around hundred men and women, yet not a single one of any significant worth. They were all commoners, ordinary people so there was nothing for him or his comrades to be worried about. In fact, since they were all simple humans, why not have a little fun. His men were eager to do something, they were travelling since they met up at Hargeon after all. And the taverns could only provide ale and sometimes the alluring flesh of female companionship. However what it didn't give his men, was an answer to their bloodlust. They were Savages after all.
'Sir!' One of the earlier mages reemerged from the darkness 'we found something already!' As he said that the other also appeared only with a young woman carrying on her back. Passed out. And unmoving, even when he put her on the ground. 'We think they might be been chasing her my lord'
Dahau looked at the girl for a moment, she had long dark hair and her skin was incredibly pale looking, sickly even. It looked like as if she hadn't eaten properly in a long time.
Curiously Dahau took a closer look, asking himself why he couldn't sense her magical presence earlier. She was obviously a magic user, that was clearly sensible now. Maybe it was because she was so weak, no there was something else, this wasn't just because she was weak. 'Let's wake her up shall we'
