(Time skip to introduce Kage)
THe last summon at the behest of Ryo was an interesting one. Since he now gotten to know the leader of Sabertooth, Indra had no real issue about following his orders. He hated to be ordered around, but he respected Ryo for his strength, skill and more upbeat personality. They were both close to the same age and had a more open view of the world. He could get used to work with him.
With that, and to continue the chain of tasks given by the mysterious and untrustworthy client. Indra didn't trust him, but he had a few tricks to learn the truth. He would have to wait till he could talk to Ryo in private about that of course. As he flew to the Serene Cliffs-- a canyon that stretched for a long distance atop a series of planes and a waterfall that filled the river below in it. He had a brief update to hunt a certain type of beast. This was a bit more of his interest as he enjoyed hunting and an A class enemy sounded pretty exciting to him.
As he flew atop of Tailong's back, now transformed-- he also had the company of another animal companion. A black furred striped Exceed that looked incredibly like a tiger. He also had ninja-like attire on his body. Kage, was a new friend and Indra's 'apprentice' that he wished to learn martial arts and ninjutsu like skills from. Though Indra had no real ninjutsu knowledge, he agreed to accept the little Exceed's desire to train. Since then, the two had become close and Indra welcomed his company. The tiger actually was quite useful-- even more so than Tailong at times since he was willing to fight.
They flew along the cliffs-- seeking where the client would be. He always had a habit to show up annoyingly in obvious places or to surprise them when they least expected....
"I really wish I knew why this client wanted these rare items. Golden Apples guarded by dragons. Now a boar... things are getting more complicated. " Indra commented.
"A job is a job, Indra," Tailong commented from the top of his head, glancing up at Indra with a turn of his eye. "Though I will agree with you. That last job was scary."
"You mean the one where you hid on Ryo's dog's head like a frightened Geck---"
"Say it... and I turn over and let you fall to your death." the dragon growled in playful spite.
