Oras knew he was suspicious for the most part, though it wasn't something he was exactly worried about either. He'd been able to work around that little detail for quite a while now, and working as a wizard had been useful as well. Taking certain jobs and aiding people where he could helped them understand he wasn't someone to fear. Still, it was certainly useful in combat. Izayuki mentioned to him how a mask was only an illusion of protection, which drew a smile from Oras. A fine choice of words he thought, but then protection itself could be an illusion as well. She did make an excellent point however, when she mentioned that his unusual aura wasn't something he could hide with a mask, and would mark him no matter what. It would certainly ruin the entire plan he had for if he had to live in hiding. The mask would still be useful for combat or for hiding his expressions and eyes, but in the sense of hiding from the world it didn't seem like it would actually be of any use. "I'll think about it."
When he reached out to take the mask she didn't let go, causing him to stiffen a little. Almost like a defensive mode in which he would be able to react if anything should happen. She then asked a personal question, asking for his full name. He was silent as he thought about the question. If she tried to investigate him, and if she was actually successful since the only ones who knew him were Raven and his old mentor, she'd only find a completely destroyed village. No remains. At the same time, his Alias didn't do much to help him now since his Aura acted to betray and hinder that method of aid. Yet, despite all of this he felt something holding himself back from answering the question. He wasn't sure what it was.. Maybe it was his past. Maybe it was a transformation of sorts. Eventually however he came to a conclusion. ".....Oras... That's my first name. I understand how meaningless and perhaps foolish this request is, but please use my alias when around others. The reason is personal."
