    -Forgotten Deserts, mid-afternoon-

    Wearing a drab green long-sleeved shirt with drab green cargo pants and black boots, Diana made her way through the endless expanse of the Forgotten Deserts on her way to a job on behalf of a researcher. The researcher worked for Crocus Magicka University and was looking for someone to help them explore a newly discovered temple that belonged to a long-lost civilization known as the Gelae. The researcher was a rival of Dr. Anna's and wanted to find something to equal Dr. Anna's discovery about the Lestrek people. However, since the newly discovered temple was full of unknown quantities, this mission may or may not be a bust.

    Diana walked along a well-worn path until she spotted three small canvas tents near what looked to be a hole in the sand with sandstone stairs that led diagonally downward. She spotted a tall, skinny man in a tan t-shirt and khaki shorts with battered pith helmet on his head and a pair of brown-framed glasses on his face. In his hands were a nondescript white saucer and a small white cup emblazoned with golden letters that were the initials for Crocus Magicka University. The man looked up from his tea and spotted the blonde.

    "Oh, hello there young lady! You must be the mage I hired to help with the expedition!" He called out to her, waving delicately with his tea cup in hand. Taking him at his word that he was the client, Diana approached him and was greeted with a warmth that rivaled the heat of the desert sun. Still clutching the cup, the man hugged her without spilling a drop.

    "You must be Diana Winchester! I've heard good things about you!" The scholarly man greeted Diana.

    "Yes. I am Diana Winchester." The blonde answered calmly.

    "My colleague in the Astrology Department recommended you to me because of the fine job you did escorting his graduate assistants and helping them with their work on Terasu. It's a shame that he didn't find what he was looking for." The man said to her, pausing long enough to take a sip of his beverage. Diana took a moment to think about who he was referring to, but once the connection was made she knew who the client's friend was. Professor Gasan of the Astronomy Department was the one who recommended that the man employ the blonde.

    "What was it that you wanted me to find?" Diana asked the older man.

    "Oh, anything, my dear. Anything that looks old and valuable." He answered without skipping a beat. Diana did not exactly find that broad directive to be valuable information. She needed something a little more specific to go on. Was she after a particular statuette, a book, an idol, a piece of jewelry? He picked up on that and elaborated after he drained his tea cup and set it gently back on the saucer.

    "I do apologize if my answer was vague, my dear. It's just that this site is new ground... forgive the pun. It's never been explored until today." He said to Diana apologetically. Diana chose to let it go and focused on the upcoming task.

    "The Gelae people were long considered to be a backwards lot of desert dwellers who did not even have a writing system, but they are far more advanced than scholars give them credit for being." He explained to her, spinning on his heels and leisurely walking towards his tent, presumably to get a refill on his drink. Diana quickly followed her client to his tent, which was a hive of activity considering that it could only comfortably accommodate three people at most.
    He walked inside and bade Diana to enter.

    "Come, my dear. We have much to discuss before you begin your exploration." He said to her. Diana calmly followed him inside and waited for him to begin to tell her more about the Gelae people and what she could expect inside the temple. He said that it was new ground, but perhaps he could give her some insights into the long-dead people that would help her get through this job alive and with some artifacts to give him.
