    Laser guns? Or at least what looks like one. Junior seems infinitely more interested in this than a ruddy hamster.

    "Keep tha pointed at the table, if yeh'd please. Folks don't much care fer weapons bein' flung about." He gives the gun a speculative glance, trying to discern its nature briefly before giving up.

    "So, what'sit do?"

    "Oh. Right."

    Devi carefully places the rifle on the table. Junior may note that it doesn't have a trigger and instead has a red pad on the grip. Strange.

    "It destroys things with lasers, what else? I'd demonstrate, but we're not exactly in the best place to be firing weapons in."

    Junior laughs heartily, slamming his mug on the table. "Lass, ah've seen guns tha look no diffrent than that turn a person's inside outwards. Yeh learn ta never trust a gun ta just blow holes inta things." The drorf stares at his empty drink, wondering where all of it went.

    "Mebbe yeh should take tha wee furry things outside an give em a blast o that? Might do tha job proper, aye?" Lasers tend to eliminate all evidence of such things, in Junior's opinion.

    "Really? That sounds cool."

    Devi stares at her gun. Then back at Junior and then the guinea pigs.

    "Oh right. I could shoot them. Just lemme take a sample..."

    It's frightening how quickly she gets a syringe out. One of the guinea pigs gets jabbed and its blood is collected. Then Devi teleports the sample away (with lightning!) and goes to scoop up the guinea pigs and the guns, while getting up.

    Junior will lead the way, now cursing himself lightly under his breath.

    He speaks up once they're outside though.

    "If yeh're ever in tha neighborhood again, Ah can draft yeh up a schematic fer one of em. Nasty little gun tha is." He really shouldn't have stored away all his blueprints. Then again, how was he to know he'd need them coming back to the bar?

    "Best set em on tha ground, then fire when yeh're ready. Oh, no wait now. Lemme see one of tha squirmy little bathrads." He holds out his hand expectantly.

    "Oooh, would you? Thanks."

    Devi hands one of the guinea pigs over to Junior and sets the other on the ground. The little rodents do not seem very alarmed, and make no bid for escape. Generations of inbreeding and human pampering have taken the survival instinct right out of the things.

    The techno-mage watches impassively, resting her large laser gun on her shoulder. She doesn't seem too bothered about obliterating two of her guinea pigs.

    "Okay!"

    BZZZZZAM! There's now a smoking hole in the street where the guinea pig just was. The laser rifle shoots a pretty wide ray. Junior might want to reconsider his plan...

    Devi turns the gun toward the drorf's hand, and closes one eye while aiming carefully. She doesn't seem particularly well trained at firing the weapon, and she's still wearing her sunglasses. Not to mention the drink she had in the tavern.

    Junior, rethink? That would require him to think about this in the first place.

    "Aright, on three, one... two... three!" Junior drops his hand slightly and tosses the guinea pig up into the path where it was a split second ago. Provided Devi didn't aim a few inches downward, this should ensure that his hand is out of harm's way when she fires.

    At least, that's what he hopes. Otherwise he'll probably lose that hand.

    ...

    Um. Well, on the bright side, Junior won't have to replace his hand. He might, however, have to fix up a finger or two, since Devi's aim is pretty terrible. The guinea pig gets incinerated too, at least.

    Junior blinks in the harsh glare of the laser, and takes stock of the damage. It seems that the bottom edge of the laser seared off the entire palm of his glove, and took off the upper layer of skin to boot. Thankfully, the burn scars he's probably going to get from this stunt will replace his calluses easily enough.

    He doesn't even seem to register the pain as he flexes his fingers, and turns to Devi.

    Devi looks at Junior's hand, though she doesn't seem too concerned. He doesn't seem to be howling in pain or bleeding profusely, so it's probably okay.

    "Sure. I want a cold one this time..."

    Back inside!

    Back inside it is. Junior carefully peels the glove off the back of his hand, and pulls a roll of bandages out from his rucksack.

    "Ah hear tell tha dark shadow's best cold, but yeh'd have ta ask one of tha gobbos if Ah'm right." He slowly and methodically bandages his hand, more to prevent infection than anything else. Burn wounds tend to fester if you don't get to them right away.

    The drorf orders another round, this time including a mug of brandy on top of his usual hearth brew mead. When it arrives, he'll dunk the hand, bandages and all, straight into it, wincing slightly as the alcohol goes to work killing bacteria.

    Well then that's what the goblin will fetch her.

    "So, if yeh're innerested, Ah can bring yeh that schematic some other time. S'not like ah dun have them up in me head, tha paper copies are jes fer reference." Devi seems like an alright sort, and he's sure she wouldn't do anything too nasty with a gun that inverses the target's organs.

    He's really pretty much at a loss as to what he should say next. Most people don't hang around long enough for a real conversation to get going, but this one seems to be winding down a bit.

    From the door, without actually opening the door, a presence flows, momentarily pulling at the wood as it passes by. The floor beneath it rises to meet its feet as it whispers across the bar to a nearby table.

    Anyone who can see magic will detect the faint outline of a woman in the midst of this anomaly, and see her sit. Then, the effect she was producing on the floor catches up to her, and from the material of the table, chair and floorboards her shape is filled in.

    The now visible wooden woman, still attached to the things she's formed from, leans forward and looks around curiously, a serene expression on her carved face.

    Not too long after the wooden woman comes in, the door opens again, though the person that enters is a great deal less strange, if somewhat atypical for the tavern's clientele. The person in question is a young lady, maybe just out of her teens, wearing a simple yellow dress, a lock of her dark brown hair dyed to match. She's holding a wooden skewer in her teeth (with only a few pieces of meat and a few vegetables left on it) as she rummages through a purse and heads up to the bar.

    Not too long after, she makes her way over to a table, the skewer still in between her teeth (though the remaining items on it are gone), and two large plates in her hands. She makes her way over to the wooden woman is at, grinning.

    "Hey! You look pretty cool, mind if I join you?"

    The plates look fairly heavy, laden with food, but the girl is balancing them without much difficulty for the moment.

    The wooden woman's lips turn up in a slow, soft smile, and she gestures to the seat opposite her. A moment afterwards, the seat slides back, and if the girl in yellow looks she'll see that it has merged slightly with the floor.

    "One would typically offer a name before approaching with such exhuberance, but it seems neither you nor I are altogether typical. I am Merideth, and it is a pleasure to meet you." Merideth's voice is soft, like the humming of a hornet's nest.

    "Ana!" And that's the extent of her upbeat introduction before she plops down the plates, which are filled with a steak, an entire loaf of bread, a bowl of assorted mushrooms, some fried fish, and a bread bowl of pasta. Taking the offered chair, she sits across from Merideth and begins on the pasta.

    "So what are you?" She asks, looking at Merideth with curious eyes. "I don't see a lot of wooden people. Are you a part of the tavern?" While her questions are blunt, her tone is friendly and curious.

    Merideth nods, not perturbed in the least by Ana's curious nature.

    "I am an elemental, and part of the tavern for as long as I remain here. When I leave, I shall be part of someplace else. The same could be said for you, if you think about it the right way." Merideth places her hands on the table, letting them sink in slightly. The wood rushes up to meet that of her fingers, and sloughs over them.

    So long as they're being blunt, "That is an awful lot of food for one person to eat, especially one that was eating even before they arrived. Have you been hungry a while then?"

    "Maaaaan I'm always hungry. Or just about." Ana replies with a sigh, after tasting some of the fish. "But it's not so bad. Lots of different things to enjoy that way. Anyway, I have a kind of killer metabolism, and I don't exactly sit still much anyway. Lots of things to think of, lots of thinks to start planning, and lots of plans to start doing, after all."

    "So, an elemental, huh? Sounds like that would be pretty handy. Are you looking for a job?" Ana asks with a smile. "I could give you one. Good pay, full health coverage."

    Merideth almost seems amused, her eyes crinkling at the corners slightly.

    "I don't have much need for health coverage, if you cannot tell. What would this job entail? I would not wish to answer in the positive, only to regret it later." Not that there is much for her to regret. Merideth is as calm as the wood she's hewn from.

    "Minioning. For you see, I am-" She pushes her chair and stands, raising her hand in the air dramatically- "Chimera! Villain of epic power, vanquisher of heroes, and master of monstrosity!"

    She pulls off those lines surprisingly well, but the cute yellow dress and matching purse undercut her image somewhat. After a moment's silence, she reclaims her seat, apparently unperturbed by those in the Den who are now staring at her.

    "Anyway, I kind of lost my last lieutenant in my failed diamond heist." She says with a sigh, but quickly adds- "Not that he died! Or that the plan was bad! It's just uh, he quit." She finishes off her pasta and takes a bite into the bread bowl, adding in a grumbling undertone, "Right after he picked up the diamond."

    "But hey, I'm sure if I had someone awesome like you on my side, we could really pull off something spectacular." Her cheerfulness regained, she beams at Merideth and devours the bread bowl in short order.

    If Merideth wasn't still moving slightly, you'd think she'd left her physical body behind. Instead, she's just shocked into silence for a brief moment.

    Then she giggles, pulling a hand away from the table to cover her mouth, "And what, exactly, does minioning for you entail? It hardly sounds like the most noble of pursuits." The entire time she's speaking, Merideth can hardly contain her mirth. This is a supervillain? Good saints did she ever seem odd.

    "I suppose I'd need a name as well then, were I to accept? I really wouldn't want to undercut your fabulous name by showing up as just plain old Merideth." Despite her poking fun, Merideth seems at least somewhat interested, as her posture becomes more open and inviting.

    "Well, no, nobility isn't quite on the list of villainous traits." Ana admits, nibbling on a mushroom idly. "But it sure is a classy and entertaining occupation. Being a minion typically involves fighting off heroes who want to foil my plans, stealing stuff, and all kinds of odd jobs. But hey, you're an elemental, you've got cool powers. You'd get to be a lieutenant, so all the boring stuff like cleaning the lair, polishing the pit traps, feeding the laser piranha, that could be delegated to someone else. You'd probably get the more special tasks, like spy work or carrying out vital parts of heists." She clarifies.

    Crumbling up some mushrooms on top of her steak, she adds, "I don't actually have any laser piranha by the way. They're kind of a nuisance to take care off."

    "But yeah, a name would probably be good. If you're feeling uninspired you could probably just go with Elemental. It's simple, catchy, pretty indicative of what you are and can do. I dunno, might feel a bit demeaning to be called that constantly though."
