    It was a beautiful morning at the Ace of Spades.

    Dawn had only crawled over the edge of the world only an hour or so ago, the sun yawning awake with beams of gold and orange. The town itself had begun to rise with it, the people who lived inside the guild town rising and preparing for their days. A few of them were already up, preparing their shops, sweeping the streets of the wayward sand that had snuck in during the night and other such tasks. But on the street that the hooded man walked, no one strode. Soon it would be filled with people – especially one of more important matter – but he still had some time before that happened. He walked along slowly, taking his time on the way to wherever he was going. The cloak that covered his head wasn’t pulled so far down that no one could make out his face; in fact, his features were more than obvious if anyone were around to catch them.

    His thick beard wrapped around the entirety of his jaw, merging up with his sideburns. Flecks of white and silver were intermingled into the dark threads, showing he was more than mid-aged. His facial completed around his lips, a similarly heavy mustache wrapping around either side of his mouth and connecting just below his nose. The entirety of the mustache was white, fading into the black beard on either side of his cheeks. His features were sharp, shaped to catch the light and create long shadows of almost superiority. His brow was pulled low over his eyes, his eyebrows making an almost perfect ‘V’ shape over the dark orbs. Yet despite his harsh façade, there was an air of warmth and ease about him.

    The brown cloak was pulled around his body enough that his undergarments couldn’t be seen, disguising him as nothing more than an elderly man on an early morning stroll. He passed by a few side streets before he changed his direction, moving down a small pathway that led to perhaps Ace of Spades’ more secret and wondrous spots. As he passed through the low archway, the park opened up before him. This piece of Eden among the sandy city wasn’t well visited by many, usually because the larger parks and attractions were quicker to catch the eye. But that made this spot even more tantalizing – it gave those that knew of it plenty of privacy to do what they wished.

    He took a moment to breath in the fresh air that came from stepping into a new space and walked slowly into the midst of the park, taking his time to look around and truly take in the sight of the paradise. He spotted a small bench off to the side that gave plenty of ample space to admire the entirety of the park. That became his goal, his gait turning just enough to carry him to it. Once there, he slid down onto the seat and let out a relieved sigh. Yes, this would do perfectly. His arms fumbled underneath his cloak and then a single arm came out, clasping a small book. He flipped it open with his thumb, finding the exact page he wanted to and sat back, immersing himself in the words within.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    Serilda woke up around dawn, as usual. She stretched in bed and gave Xiuhcoatl a good rub down, the wolf snuggling up against the woman and demanding attention. Her morning routine was not a terribly long one. She made her bed and changed out of her nightgown into her clothes for the day, letting Xiuh in the yard to go do her business. A quick breakfast was made of some eggs and toast with jelly, which she ate while scrolling through news articles on her phone.

    It was a good day. Then again, every day had been a good one for her since Christmas. She felt light, like she was walking on air everywhere she went. Even at the guildhall a couple people had noticed she was a little more perky than normal. Serilda didn’t tell them anything, of course -- it wasn’t really anyone’s business, and she didn’t exactly need to be spreading details about her friend. Regardless, there wasn’t a whole lot she could do to hide the fact that she was feeling happier than she had in a long time. She would often catch herself smiling for no reason, and she was more social and chatty than she had ever been since joining Sabertooth.

    It was love that was making her this way. She was all too familiar with the feeling, though truthfully it felt somehow… different this time around than it had with Hugo. Not better or worse, just different. She and Mythal connected on a different level than she and her late husband had, and Hugo’s death had been paying its toll on her for almost five years now. But lately, she was starting to feel a bit more like herself again, and it was all thanks to the god slayer that had stumbled his way into her life.

    Finishing up her food, she cleaned the dishes and put them away. Then, she brushed her hair and teeth, and pulled on her boots. Whistling to Xiuh, the two of them left the house and made their way toward the small park nearby where they often trained together. They jogged side by side the whole way, warming up their bodies from the cool winter air. Her outfit that day was more for working out than anything else, not uniformed attire that spoke to a woman of duty, but rather simple clothes that she wouldn’t mind if they got sweaty or dirty -- though they were still clearly of a higher quality make than many other garments.

    When they got to the park, it was already occupied. This was a surprise, but not a great one. It wasn’t often that others used this small park, but it wasn’t exactly unknown. It just wasn’t as popular as some of the bigger parks closer to the center of the city. Still, this would hardly be the time to do some real training with someone else present. The man appeared to be on the older side, his hood up to fight off the edge of the cool air. He had a thick beard and mustache combination that was peppered with dark and graying hair. In his hands was a book that he seemed to be enjoying.

    If he happened to look up and make eye contact with her, she’d smile with polite acknowledgement and give him a nod. Then she knelt down next to the wolf, who wagged her tail happily from the pets she received. “Looks like it’s a play day for us, girl,” Serilda told the hound quietly. Stretching her hand over the ground, she called up a fist sized clod of dirt into it. As the clod lifted up from the ground, Serilda used her magic to shape it into a perfect sphere and adjust its properties until it was essentially the shape and weight of a tennis ball.

    Xiuh immediately knew what was happening. Already her body was half turned away from Serilda, her big ears perked forward and her normally dopey expression turned instead to one of serious intention as she stared at the ball and waited for it to be thrown. After teasing her with a couple fake tosses, the mage finally launched the item across the park, and the wolf chased after it eagerly. It was like this that they spent their next few minutes, Xiuh chasing the ball and bringing it back to her, the two of them playing like any other house dog might with their owner.

    The barely hooded man sat there for some time, idly flipping the pages as he completed them and his eyes turned to embrace the new words awaiting him. After some time, he heard the approach of someone else. His head didn’t lift as the young woman entered the park with her hound, able to see her enough out of the corner of his eyes. He continued to read dutifully, only halting long enough to wager a glance as she set herself, meeting his gaze and giving her a gentle nod of acknowledgement. He was about to return to his book when he noticed her pull a decently sized chunk of dirt out of the ground through her magic. Curious now, he kept his gaze attuned to her as she shaped it into a ball, cleanly wiping away its impurities until it was the perfect size.

    And her hound was more than happy to have a new toy created for her. She was ready, already in a stance to sprint off the minute the ball was tossed. A few quick pumps in jest teased the hound before the ball was finally thrown, the pet racing after it at full sprint. When she retrieved it, she was quick to bring it back and return it to its master’s hand. The man’s book slowly dropped as he continued to watch them, his eyes following the ball up until the dog had it in its mouth and then returning to the master. A warm, almost wondrous smile tugged at his lips as he viewed the bond between the two. He continued to watch them, finally deciding to close his book and return to it another time. Watching the master and pet play was far more intriguing than the words on the pages, at least for him.

    After some time, he finally decided to speak up – no sense in merely observing without a bit of conversation. Otherwise she might think him a creep. “She’s quite impressive,” he said, leaning back on the bench. His voice was slightly raspy but deep, carrying the same authority his sharp features gave off. “I remember long ago, when I was a mere lad, I had a pet just like her. Ecstatic little thing she was; always wantin’ to run around and play. My parents had the worst time tryin’ to train her but not me – she was always willin’ to listen to me. She lived a long time for a dog, older than most actually. And she still had it in her to wag her tail excitedly right until she passed,” he remembered his past fondly, old memories seeping to the surface upon watching the master and hound.

    He cleared his throat before he spoke again. “Do you mind if I ask what breed she is? She is unlike I’ve ever seen before; her coat is quite beautiful.”

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    She was aware that the man started watching them at some point -- he wasn’t exactly trying to hide it. In any other circumstance Serilda might have considered the act a bit on the creepy side, but with Xiuh around she was honestly used to people stopping to stare. The wolf was a wonder to look at, with her thick glossy coat of the deepest black, the cream colors glittering the darkness like stars in the night sky. She knew that nine times out of ten it was her companion that was getting the drawn out looks, not herself, and that did not really bother her.

    Eventually the man spoke up, choosing to engage in conversation rather than merely watch the pair. In a raspy but not unpleasant voice he complimented the wolf, delving into a small memory from his past of a time that he owned a similar dog. Similar, at least, in the sense that she was very playful. The animal apparently had not been much for listening except with him. He described how she’d lived a long life, happy even right up until the moment she’d passed. Serilda listened politely, pausing in the game of fetch with the wolf in order to give him more of her full attention -- though she did kneel down and pet the wolf to make up for the fact that she was no longer throwing the ball.

    “She is a Star Wolf,” Serilda told him when he asked, looking down at Xiuh and running an affectionate hand along the dusty spine of the creature. “They’re a fairly rare breed, and appropriately named. Most of them look like they’re covered in stardust, and they are capable of wielding limited magical properties in the forms of starlight and fire. My mother breeds them as hunting companions.”

    Xiuh’s mouth was wide open, her tongue lolling out the side as she happily panted from her spent energy chasing the ball. As if she knew they were talking about her, the large wolf pup leaned her body against Serilda’s and snuck in a quick lick on the woman’s face before she could stop her. The Voidwalker smirked impishly down at the animal, wiping the slobber off her face. “This one happens to be a very silly wolf when she’s not on duty,” she remarked almost a bit accusationally at the wolf, though her tone betrayed she wasn’t mad in the slightest.

    Serilda looked back up at the man. “Are you new to the town? I don’t often run into others here outside of a regular group of us that tend to make use of the space.” She wasn’t trying to pry or treat him suspiciously so much as making a genuine effort to be kind and social in return. The only other faces she usually saw around here were others that lived nearby that she saw fairly often. She was very good with faces and names, and he did not look familiar. A lot of people came to visit Ace of Spades, sure, but none ever found their way to this more remote and private little park.

    “Ahh, a Star Wolf. That is a breed that I have certainly heard of or at least heard the name here and there. But I can see why; her coat is quite glorious,” he nodded thoughtfully as Serilda had explained the hound’s breed and a bit of the background information. “A fine position to have, a breeder of huntin’ dogs. Requires a lot of work and effort; I commend your mother for takin’ on such a high demand, high reward task.” He gave an honest smile as he admired the hound for a moment longer. The animal, having realized they must have been talking about her, leaned over and gave its master an affectionate lick. The woman was quick to remark on her silliness, teasing the hound.

    The woman took a moment to look up at him, now deciding to turn the questioning on him. A natural response, since he had decided to interfere in her games with her ally. He chuckled as he pulled the book back within his robe, to be stored somewhere inside. “I suppose the answer is both yes and no. I’m a bit of a nomad so I travel all across Earthland on business. I’ve been to Ace of Spades before but not in a couple of years – been more east than here. So no surprise you don’t recognize me, nor I you naturally. But this park…” he remarked as he took a moment to look around the place. “Ace of Spades is the closest thing to a home town that I’ve ever had. I lived here off and on for varying years, shortly after Sabertooth constructed it. I was one of the first people to take up residence, only two blocks over from here. As you mentioned, this place is fairly private and isn’t a well-traveled route of any kind so it serves as a perfect place to sit and read. I do always read easier when I’m outside but alone,” he admitted with another chuckle.

    “My apologies, for interruptin’ your play time with her. I tend to speak up and out of turn when I see somethin’ that interests me. If you’ll humor an old man a bit more, I wished to ask about your magic,” he said, nodding specifically to the ball still in her hand. “Is it some kind of earth-based magic? I only ask because I once knew a wizard that had an immense amount of control over the soil around him. Last I had heard, he had settled in with a wife and was planning to have some kids. You don’t quite have the same look as him – he was quite the brutish looking man,” he remembered fondly, smiling at the amusing memory of his old friend’s face.

    There was nothing to be intimidated with him; his entire demeanor and sitting stance betrayed just how relaxed and inoffensive he was. For all intents and purposes, he seemed like a genuine older man who had come to the park to read for the pleasure of it. His curiosity had gotten the better of him and now he was more interested in the hound and, by extension, the master that reared it.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    “She loves every minute of it,” Serilda told the man with a small smile when he commended her mother. “Her family has been breeding them for generations. It was actually how my father met her -- he wanted to try to get one when he was younger, but wound up getting a date instead.” She chuckled a little. Her dad had been so taken away by her mother when they first met that he’d forgotten about trying to bond with a pup entirely.

    He answered her question honestly, telling her he was a bit of a wanderer but had at one time called this guild town home. Apparently he’d even lived not too far over from where they currently were. Serilda didn’t make any comments to confirm how close she lived or not -- it was never a good habit to give such information to strangers -- but it was still a nice coincidence to know that he’d once called this area home. He told her how he always liked to come to this secluded little area to read in the great outdoors, a sentiment that Serilda could certainly appreciate. More than once she’d come here to enjoy the fresh air while writing in her journal and letting Xiuh run around.

    “It’s not a problem,” she assured him when he apologized for interrupting the pair’s time. Truthfully, Serilda was used to people stopping to ask questions about the wolf with the colorful coat they’d never seen before. The man went on then to ask about her magic, commenting on how she’d shaped the earth into a ball earlier. He even went on to tell her that he knew an earth mage once, insinuating he would have assumed them related if it weren’t for the fact that she didn’t look like the man he knew.

    It was not a very personal question, as far as Serilda was concerned. As a mage, she got asked about her magic quite often. Xiuhcoatl wriggled against her a bit, making it clear she wanted to chase the ball again. “You are an ill mannered child,” she murmured teasingly to the animal with a smirk, though not so quietly that the man wouldn’t be able to hear the comment. Standing back to her feet, she threw the thing so the wolf could race after it.

    “I wouldn’t describe my father as a brutish looking man,” Serilda told him with a hint of a smirk. “Though I’m sure he wishes he was an earth mage, or that I was one, because that would certainly help with the family business. My family owns the mines in Clover Town.” She added the last statement only to explain her prior comment as to why being an earth mage would be beneficial for her family. If he was a nomad like he said, he surely at least knew of the mines in that area, potentially would even be able to figure out her noble background depending on how much he knew of the social structure there, but as always Serilda never really directly told anyone she was an heiress; it was tacky and classless.

    Xiuh brought the ball back and set it at Serilda’s feet, ready to run once more. Again, the woman threw the ball. “My magic is Voidwalking. It’s hard to explain, but to put it simply… between the molecules that make up all matter in this world, there exists empty spaces that gives those molecules room to move and shift. I can control those spaces of nothingness, and in so doing it allows me to manipulate the matter around me.”

    The man smiled evenly as Serilda told him of her mother and her love for the breeding. She even went into detail about how her father had come to attempt to adopt a hound and had, in the long run, wound up taking the mother out instead. It was a cute story and his smiled widened a bit at it, amused and thoroughly enjoying the tale of her parents meeting. “Quite the lucky man,” he commented, chuckling right along with her. Not many could claim to meet their future bride on an errand to earn a pet.

    He was glad to his speaking up hadn’t bothered her, outwardly showing his relief in his face. “I’m glad to hear it. I’m a bit a busy-body and when I notice somethin’ I hadn’t before, I tend to speak up – even when I shouldn’t. I’ve always been a bit of a nosy nelly,” admitted, chuckling softly. How many times had he spoken up when he shouldn’t have? Far too many times to tell at this point. He’d never been one to simply observe without comment, be it a bad situation or good. He was even more vocal when he was seeing something new for the first time, wanting to know more about it. The fact that he hadn’t grilled her for all the details that came from a Star Wolf breed was quite the miracle at this point. Best not to scare away the nice lady that was offering her time and patience with him.

    Serilda took a moment to attend to the hound that had grown restless and was in need of attention. The wizard threw the ball so the Star Wolf could chase it and then answered his question concerning her father, who was neither a brute nor an earth mage. As she revealed that her family owned the mines in Clover, his face contorted in thought, scrounging around in his head for some inclination of a name. “Clover Town mines… you wouldn’t happen to be a Sinclair, would you?” he asked. There weren’t many mining families in Fiore so if you knew one; you knew a single part of a small cog. Limiting the focus to Clover Town made the assumption all the easier to make.

    But far more interesting than that was her magic explanation. He’d heard of other mages that could utilize the void realm; that was beyond the comprehension of most people’s minds. It seemed she was connected to that in part but not entirely; her magic was focused on the manipulation of the space between the molecules of the world, essentially making her ability one of terrifying strength. Were she a disputable person, she could cause a lot of carnage with her ability to warp matter. But given that she had simply used it to create a ball for her dog, he imagined she wasn’t the kind that did that. “Very interestin’. So not quite earth magic at all,” he added as a small joke, even laughing at his own humor. “I’ve seen some magic in my days but that certainly is unique. I’m sure your Star Wolf is quite amenable to its use, as long as it continues to provide fresh toys to play with,” he said with a laugh, nodding to the ball at her feet.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    The man was quite entertained by the story of her parents’ meeting. He also seemed rather relieved when she assured him that he hadn’t annoyed her by striking up conversation, going on to explain that he often got himself into trouble from being too nosy. Serilda chuckled softly at his use of terminology about his social habit.

    Her mention regarding her family’s business did seem to strike a chord of recognition with him. He frowned slightly in thought before asking if she was a Sinclair. “I am,” Serilda told him, graciously nodding her head to him. “The duke and duchess are my parents. I’m their eldest, Serilda.” Once more, she refrained from using titles for herself. There was hardly a reason to herald herself as an heiress in this conversation, but she did still speak enough to claim her family name with pride and humility.

    He commented on her magic, drawing another small smirk from her. “No, not quite earth magic.” She looked down at the wolf who was sitting at her feet again, waiting patiently to be acknowledged in some form again. Xiuh really was a glutton for attention. Serilda could sense the curiosity radiating from the furred creature, who had taken notice of the fact that her mistress was spending more time talking to a new person rather than throwing the ball. Or, more realistically, who wanted to know why she had not been allowed to greet this newcomer yet.

    Serilda snorted softly, and looked up at the man. “She would like to meet you. If you’re not opposed..?” She assumed he wouldn’t be, based on the interaction so far, but it was still more polite to check first. He had not been anything but friendly with her, so she saw no reason not to let Xiuh socialize as well. Presuming he agreed, she would look down at the wolf and say, “Til lethed.

    Xiuh wasted no time in trotting over to the man at the bench, her ears perked forward with interest. She’d stop in front of his legs, sniffing over basically any part of him that her nose could reach without jumping on him. Her fluffy tail twitched with each new scent she picked up from him, and if he wanted to she would let him pet her. Serilda picked up the ball, but did not throw it. Instead she walked casually over to stand near the bench so she wasn’t as far away while talking to him.

    “She does enjoy working alongside my magic. I use it a lot in her training, as well as when playing. I have more traditional toys for her at home, but it’s definitely convenient that I can often just shape something for her from the space around me. She’s never complained at least.” Shaking her head a little in amusement, she asked, “So what brings you back to Ace of Spades? Do you travel for work?”

    Ah, now wasn’t that interesting? The heiress of the Sinclair family business and fortune had a lot of noise about her, though almost all of it was glowing and positive. She was regarded as a woman of honor, who upheld the morale code that came with being born into the Sinclair family. How interesting was it that she was here at Ace of Spades, a part of the Sabertooth guild? He smiled genuinely and bowed his head, showing her due respect.“Their eldest, Serilda Sinclair. It is an honor to make your acquaintance.” It was quite the rare sight to see any noble person essentially slumming it in the desert town of Ace of Spades but Serilda seemed… different from others. She didn’t seem to hold her fame and fortune with a snobby regard.

    A fact he could greatly respect. As the Voidwalker expressed that the hound wished to meet him, their conversation having gone on long enough to interest the Star Wolf. “Why I would love to,” he said, trying not to sound like a little boy meeting his first pup. He waited as the hound was given the command to introduce herself and watched in wonder as she walked over to greet him. His hand came out gently from his cloak, holding it out with the top of it for her to smell. “Will she be bothered if I pet her?” He asked Serilda, waiting to assure that he could run his hands through the hound’s illustrious fur. When he was given permission, he gently eased the cloak open so his arm could fully extend. She’d be able to see that he wore a rather regal outfit beneath the cloak, a deep blue that was almost as dark as the sea. It was made of a soft-looking fabric, with golden adornments running vertically with his torso on either side of his pectorals and stomach. The barest hint of a white shoulder guard was visible from under the cloak, additional golden pieces that covered the edges. More interesting was probably the marking on his left breast; a symbol that would surely be unknown to the woman.

    He ran his hand over the hound’s back, rubbing his fingers into her fur and giving her attentive pets. His full attention was on the Star Wolf, though he did sense her coming closer to the two of them. He chuckled as she explained that she often used her magic around Xiuhcoatl. “Best way to get her used to it is to make her aware of it and often,” he agreed with the idea, nodding. He lifted his head to look at her as she asked about him, his smile still as warm and pleasant as ever. “I had a bit of down time so I decided to come and rest at home for a bit. It’s not often I get to park myself at home. I travel all over doing… investigative work. The company I work for likes to record information and pass it along to the Magic Council, to help them better in the defense of the country. We work sort of on contract; they hire us to go and investigate information, we send it back with solid answers and then we get paid.” He chuckled once more. “Not a glamorous job, I assure you, but it pays the bills and does a bit of good here and then.”

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    Well, he did seem to keep up with nobility. A look of recognition crossed his face and he smiled, even bowing his head as was respectable to a woman of her station. In other situation she might assure him not to worry about that, but at the moment she was here as herself, not representing the guild. It would be both silly and ungracious to insist otherwise, particularly for such a quick gesture. Instead, she simply returned the respect by offering him a firm handshake. “It’s a pleasure, mister..?” the question hung in the air, giving him a chance to introduce himself however he wished.

    The man was open to being introduced to the wolf, a bit of eagerness in his eyes as he sat forward a bit to engage her. Xiuh audibly sniffed his hand, tail wagging. “Oh trust me, she’ll be more bothered if you don’t pet her.” Serilda smirked at the wolf. Xiuh was so friendly that often times people had difficulty believing she was actually a hunting and fighting companion. As he leaned toward Xiuh to pet her, Serilda took silent, casual note of the outfit he wore beneath his cloak. It was a rather regal looking get up bearing a symbol that she had never seen before, but did commit to memory.

    As he adorned Xiuhcoatl with much desired attention, he explained to her that he worked for the Magic Council, if through what seemed third party kind of means. Apparently, he traveled around the continent gathering intelligence for them in exchange for money. Right now it seemed he had some free time though, and decided to take a little rest at his old stomping grounds.

    “Few jobs of importance are glamorous,” she replied with a small smile. Being a noble, she would certainly know -- her father took care of most of the ins and outs of maintaining Clover and its citizens, which often involved rather grueling tasks, but since she was next in line to inherit his title she was often assisting him with such tasks. “Sounds a bit like Rune Knight work, which is where I’m ultimately hoping to end up.” The way he’d worded it made it seem as though he wasn’t actually working for the Rune Knights, since he was based off a contract, but it was still very similar to what they did. Biggest difference probably was that he wasn’t tied to Fiore like the Knights often were.

    “Either way, it’s necessary work that benefits the country as a whole, as well as its individual provinces. I know that Clover has benefited numerous times from information that has trickled down from the Magic Council, so as a citizen, a wizard, and a representative of the Sinclair house, I do thank you for your services to the country and our people.” She meant it, too. Without informants like him, they would be much worse off as a country.

    He hadn’t even thought about the fact that they hadn’t officially introduced themselves to one another. He had found out her heritage merely by conversing with her and picking the details out and confirming them with her. But now that one side had been fully introduced, there was no reason for him to not tell his side as well. He looked up at her and brought his free hand up for her to shake, should she so choose to take it. “Ignacio,” he said, formally introducing himself to her. “My friends call me Igna but I much prefer the full thing. Makes me sound so much more important than I am,” he joked, adding a small laugh after he said it.

    He would have been more than pleased to just pet the animal all morning. He was enjoying both their companies; it had been some time since he had just sat and conversed with anyone. He explained a little bit about his job to her, both going into detail and holding plenty of it back. Given the nature of the job, he was sure she understood he couldn’t just tell her everything. But he told her as much as he could without sparing meticulous information and he could see she was interested, since she mentioned that she would like to ultimately join the Rune Knights. He nodded along with her words. “A noble goal to have. In a way, we alike to the Rune Knights but not quite the same. In fact, as they are, the Knights are a bit… lackin’ in their ability. Their numbers have dwindled and recruitment is at an all-time low. That is why I’m sent out to retrieve information; they need to keep their own numbers close to home. A wizard of your capability and nobility would be right well in their ranks. I can’t say I have much in terms of connections but I’ll be sure to mention your name when I have an opportunity.” It was an earnest offer and one that he would follow through on, even if she insisted he didn’t need to.

    She took a moment to thank him for all the information he had handed back, assuming that there were many times what he had done had helped others out. She wasn’t wrong but he still waved off her thanks modestly. “Thank you for that but it’s not needed. I do what I can to help the people of Fiore sleep better at night – that is all the thanks I need.” He smiled up at her, nodding once more to show his appreciation. He pulled his hand back and reached into a pocket within the jacket, pulling out a small chained watch. “But it seems I have run out of time. My apologies – some other obligations call.” He stood up and gave Xiuhcoatl a couple more pats on her back. “Thank you for lettin’ an’ old man talk and enjoy some time with your wonderful Star Wolf,” he said, giving her a short bow of his head.

    He waited long enough for her to bid her farewells too and then turned and headed for the archway that led into the park. He’d made it underneath it and was just turning the corner when he spoke up, loud enough for her to hear. “Oh and do me a favor, if you don’t mind. Say hello to Mythal when you see him next.” As he passed around the corner, there would be a sudden thunderous crash, like a lightning bolt had just struck the earth mere yards away. If Serilda came running around the corner to follow him, all she would find would be a scorch mark, seared into the ground right by the entrance to the park.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    “Well, Ignacio it is then,” she told him with a slight smirk to his joke, as he confessed he much preferred the full name over the shortened version.

    She did nod when he confirmed that the Knights, though a great organization with a lot of potential, had greatly waned over the last several years as their ranks were quite low. What little they had was spread thin. When he followed it up saying that he’d be sure to drop her name if he had a chance, she raised a hand. “Thank you, but you don’t have to do that. I actually already have the qualifications they want, but I came to Sabertooth first to hone my magic. I haven’t had it very long, and I knew a guild would help me grow my magic faster than the Knights would. My hope is that focusing on mastering my spells will make me a more desirable asset for them.”

    He graciously took her thanks, though assured her it wasn’t needed. Shortly after that, he pulled out a watch and checked the time, stating it was time for him to get back to business. Xiuh stepped back to give him space to stand as he thanked Serilda for her time and for humoring him. “Not a problem at all. If I never run into you again, I wish you luck with your work.” It was a silly thing to assume she would never see him again, though she wouldn’t realize that until after he had almost gone. Serilda had almost gone back to fully paying attention to Xiuh when she heard Ignacio’s voice from across the small park asking her for a favor.

    Her head snapped up so fast it was a wonder it didn’t break. “Excuse me?” she asked, her tone a mixture of confusion, concern, and defensiveness. He disappeared around the corner and she was already bearing down on him when she heard the thunder. By the time she got through the arch, there was nothing but a scorch mark -- though she’d already known he was gone by then. He had disappeared completely from her Void Sense.

    Panic started to wash over her. Xiuhcoatl felt it too, though she didn’t understand what had set Serilda off. The man had been so nice. The wolf couldn’t understand. But the Voidwalker began to question everything that had just happened. She stood in confusion for only a moment before calling to Xiuh and making her way home. She needed to contact Mythal, from a safe place.

    Once she was home, she pulled out her iLac and dialed his number. “Mythal?” she said when he answered. He’d probably immediately be able to hear the tinge of fear in her voice. “Do you have a minute? We need to talk. I just ran into someone I don’t know, a stranger here at the park I usually go to… I didn’t think anything of it, but he brought up your name and then disappeared…”

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    While Serilda had been enjoying and flourishing in the notion of her love, Mythal had not. In fact, he was quite the opposite. The first night that he’d come back home, he’d drank himself into such a stupor that he wasn’t sure what time he passed out and how long he slept. Not enough to kill him, as he had woken up at five in the frigging morning the next day. Ever since then, he had been down – he didn’t know what to do. Love was something he never thought he’d feel again, especially after Gren had died. His adoptive father had been the only person he honestly felt some kind of emotion towards and right around the time he started to feel comfortable in it, he had been killed. Was it simply fear for Serilda’s life that he so loathed love or was it something deeper? Love came with strings; invisibles lines that could pull apart one’s heart. Serilda wouldn’t do that… would she? Love changed things, made every little instance and moment more complicated and harder to understand.

    His best option was to make her fall out of love with him. But how could he do that? Start ignoring her? Pushing her away? It wasn’t a hard thing to do for Mythal – he could push aside anyone without given much reason. But with her, he didn’t want to; he still wanted her as a friend. Having someone that close, someone he could rely on as a confidant, it made life… easier to handle. Gods, he just didn’t know what to do! He had been sitting in his living room, staring at the wall for hours now, his thoughts caught in a whirlwind of indecisiveness. His reverie was only shattered when his iLac buzzed and there she was, the woman he was in love with, calling him. Were her ears burning or something?

    “Your device is shaking,” Susano pointed out. Mythal had forgotten the demi-god was sitting in the room as well, meditating over by the large window wall across from him.

    “I’m aware,” the God Slayer mumbled, reaching for it. He took a breath and pressed the answer button. “Hey,” he greeted her in his usual tone. Before he could get another word in, the Voidwalker was assaulting him with information. His brow furrowed noticeably as she explained she had run into someone at a park she frequented. She hadn’t recognized him but he had specifically mentioned Mythal before mysteriously disappearing. His nervous thoughts about his feelings vanished and were instantly replaced with nervous thoughts about Faera and her kin. Had they found a way to send an agent after him? Were they going after Serilda? Immediately his blood began to boil, the idea that they would attack the people he cared about causing his inner fire to smolder brighter. “What did he look like? Did he say anything else? Mention a name of someone else, or his name? Anything?” He snapped right into questioning. The more details she could relay to him, the better; then he could begin trying to figure out who this mysterious person was.

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    As she had expected, he sounded just as concerned about the fact that someone who knew him had approached her. Mythal immediately questioned her for everything she could tell him. “The name he gave me was Ignacio, but who’s knows if that was real or not.”

    She took a moment to gather her thoughts. Luckily, small details were something that Serilda had trained herself a lot on remembering over the last few years, to the point where she almost had a photographic memory. “Okay, so. Appearances. He wasn’t very tall for a man. Only a little over five and a half feet or so. He was older, probably in his fifties or so. His hair was covered by a hooded robe he wore, but he had a thick black beard with a lot of white and silver in it, and a mustache that was all white. Angular face, dark eyes. He was very brawny, practically all muscle. It was hard to see beneath the cloak, but I did catch a glimpse. He was wearing a blue and gold uniform of some kind with a symbol on it that I’ve never seen before. Almost like… the head of a trident, but with five spokes?”

    That was the best way she could think to describe the icon. “We talked for a bit. He said he worked for the Magic Council, but not as like a Rune Knight or anything. He works as a contract intelligence agent that supposedly gathers information outside of Fiore and sells it back to the kingdom to benefit the country. He was already at the park when I got there, and the place is usually abandoned. We got to talking a little, and he told me that he used to live in Ace of Spades shortly after it was founded -- not far from where I live. He knew who I was, or at least seemed to figure it out after a bit of conversation, but that’s not all that uncommon…” It was much easier for people to know who she was because of her status, so the fact that he knew her really wasn’t much of a concern. She was used to it.

    “What else…” She racked her brain trying to remember any other details that she could. “He mentioned knowing an earth mage a while back… and was very interested in Xiuhcoatl, which is also not very uncommon.”

    Realizing that she was pacing madly through her living room with worry, she sighed and forced herself to sit down on the couch. It was only once she was holding relatively still that she even realized she was shaking. Like him, she was worried that this man was someone in Faera’s court trying to use her to get to Mythal. “All in all it was a pleasant conversation pretty much the whole time… He never pried for personal information or said anything cryptic or off color. He was very personable, and I wouldn’t have thought anything of it at all. But just before he left, he asked me to say hi to you for him. You never even came up in the conversation, so he already knew who I was and that I know you. I tried to chase after him when he said that to get answers out of him, but as soon as he was out of my sight there was… a sound, like a loud clap of thunder and he was gone. Completely disappeared.”

    She rubbed her forehead. A little quietly, told him, “I didn't know what to do so... I came home immediately and called you."

    I've been out there and seen the things she's made


    No.

    Serilda began her story, starting off with the man’s name. Immediately it struck a chord; one that hadn’t been touched in almost twenty years. His eyes widened a tad and the tension in the air thickened. It was so rife that even Susano felt it, his eyes opening and his body turning to look back at Mythal. He listened with a sharp and focused ear as she gave him an inventory of what the man had looked like. Only a little over five feet, older, thick beard, practically made of muscle, sharp, angled face… he didn’t recognize the colors of the uniform or the symbol but all the rest of the details.

    No, no.

    The Voidwalker continued, explaining a bit of what their encounter had been like. He’d said he worked for the Magic Council but not as a Rune Knight – more like a contractor who went out and retrieved information.  He had used to live in Ace of Spades some time ago, back when the Sabertooth guild had decided to expand its region into a full-fledged city. He knew who she was after they talked, seemingly putting the pieces together without any trouble or hindrance at all. He’d known an earth mage and was interested in Xiuhco. All the details were piling up like a stack of papers in his mind but each one was like a paper cut, slicing into the fleshy parts of his heart that were so weak and tender at the moment. She kept on, saying how pleasant he had been, how he hadn’t pushed her for information and was extremely personable, to the point that if he hadn’t name dropped Mythal, she wouldn’t have suspected anything. He didn’t make mention of the God Slayer once until the end as he was departing. She had attempted to question him but he had disappeared, leaving nothing but a patch of dark soot – much like a lightning strike.

    “Mythal?” Susano asked, his voice low but concerned. The demi-god’s worry barely registered in the God Slayer’s ears, everything in his world ringing save for the sound of Serilda’s voice. Everything she had told him played over and over again, like a broken record that just wouldn’t end. He barely realized that tears were clinging to the edges of his eyes, wanting nothing more than to spring forth and run rampant over his cheeks.  

    “Seri…” he said softly, his voice all but choked up. “Ignacio was Gren’s middle name. Gren Ignacio Ragnos. He was a short man who had a thick beard and was fare more muscled than anyone else I’d ever met. He used to live in Ace of Spades when he was younger, before he adopted me. Branwen, the major in the Rune Knights, is an earth wizard. He loved dogs. For all his hardness and sharp looks, he was the friendliest man I’d ever known. And he has lightning magic. Seri… that was Gren.”

    “That was my father.”

    "Character counts most when duty calls."




    By the time he reacted, Serilda would be glad she was already sitting. Mythal spoke her name softly, but she could still hear the emotion in his voice as he told her that Ignacio had been his adoptive father’s middle name.

    Her heart stopped.

    She said not a word as he summed up his father, everything about him perfectly matching the description and interaction with the man she’d just been talking to. It was like the entire world around her had been put on pause, like she was watching herself from someone else’s eyes in her own house. “B-but…” Her mind almost instantly went into denial, but before she could even finish that Serilda recalled that the authorities had never found Gren’s body in the aftermath of the fire.

    “Gods…” Her voice was almost a whisper, and trembling just as much as his was. Mythal’s father. She’d actually been talking to Mythal’s dad just now, face to face, and Serilda was entirely uncertain of what to think about that. “Mythal…” Her voice trailed off. She wanted to say something, anything, but she was totally and utterly speechless -- more so even than times in the past.

    All at once, a million horrible thoughts burrowed into her mind. If Gren was alive, where had he been all these years? Had he just abandoned Mythal? Let his son believe he was dead, and allowed him to live with grief and guilt? Mythal had spent the last twenty years having to fend for himself on the streets, struggling to survive on his own as a young boy with a terrifying history that haunted him actively. He had grown to the point where he despised humanity, saw them as a plague, didn’t let anyone even touch him until Serilda had quite literally forced her way into his life -- albeit not intentionally. Twenty years the man that she loved had spent being alone with no one there to care for him or help him fight back the darkness.

    And now he just suddenly shows back up? Not even to his son, but to her? Scaring the daylights out of her for one thing, but putting him through this even further trauma of having to find out that his father had been alive this whole time? Of making her be the one to reveal that to him unknowingly, to put him in that place of pain, instead of owning up to the truth and facing his son himself?

    Unlike Mythal, Serilda found tears of anger quickly dripping down her face. She was silent for a long time as she’d struggled to comprehend the reality of what had just happened, and when it finally hit her the next sound he’d hear from her would be shuddered breath through a running nose as a very real rage assaulted her in the form of crying. “How dare he…” she whispered, more to herself than to Mythal but he’d surely hear it. How dare Gren put both of them in this place. Even if his intentions had been honest ones, there was absolutely no excuse for this.

    She cried in earnest over the phone, unable to stop herself. “I was so scared that it was one of Faera’s men trying to get to you,” Serilda said, her anger evident in her voice even through the sobs of heartache over everything. Such was her rage over this revelation that her entire body was trembling. “All this time… You should be hearing this from him, not finding out through me. Mythal, I’m so sorry…”

    Serilda felt absolutely terrible for putting this on him, for being tricked into crashing his entire world down around him. Her gut physically wrenched as she thought about how much he must be hurting, about how much more painful all these revelations had to be on him. All she could do was weep over the phone as she wrestled with the anger in her heart over all of this. Xiuh hopped up on the couch and wormed her way onto the woman’s lap, laying her head down and trying to be a warm, comforting weight on her mistress, who was too busy trying to wipe away tears with her free hand to pet the animal.
