It made things all the more interesting when Magic flew into other borders, such as in the case of today. He read the request paper carefully, making sure that the details in the description handed to him wasn’t off or misread by him earlier. It took him a few minutes inside of his office to come to the conclusion that the details described a sort of Tengu – now, why on earth was a Tengu here in Fiore?
Tengu were ascetic creatures, huge in size and followers of ascetic beliefs. Mura read about them back when he attended the Onmyōryō – the school and bureau system for Midijin priests called Onmyōji. Yeah, Mura would consider himself experienced in the field of Yōkai or just about any magical creature... okay, not just any. Mostly those from Midi, but that was because he desperately needed to know about them to deal with them back when he was a green, little bean.
Hmh... so a Tengu had been spotted at the waters near the coast of Hargeon. Maybe it had fallen into the sea near the Shinnai Falls and floated all the way here. Either way, he could deal with it... but he didn’t need to kill it. Tengus were often more reasonable than giants.
“Teeeeeeeengu! Dun dun dun! Teeeeeeeengu! Dun dun dun! Teeeeeeeeng-“
“Well, aren’t you excited?”
“So should you! A Tengu, Mura! We haven’t seen one in years! Oh, oh! Maybe it’ll grant us another wish if we remove a splinter from its toe again…”
“But- wait… no. Odds call that a load of crap. Listen, we can just talk to it a little – maybe build a raft for it to float back to Midi. Not the most serious stuff here-“
“W-WHAT DO YOU MEAN ‘NOT THE MOST SERIOUS’?!”
Arghhh, Kyuken was always so full of energy… but truth be told, Mura wasn’t really 100% present lately. It was as if the events of Pergrande’s war with Bellum just… threw him off his game. But still, he was a Guildmaster… and since this mission could prove a nice trip to Hargeon, he should accompany someone.
While packing his gear – his two katanas, his belt, his haori, his backpack and all, Zirconis – a green dragon ghost in the form of a green orb with a face – had flown out of the office and down to the guild hall to summon Celestia Silvervane and inform her that a quest was available.
Once she had geared up, Mura would await her outside of the guild – right by the gate on the stairs leading to Dragonbane Avenue.
