    The mention of screaming in fear gives Winguardia a few moments pause. She looks at Sevet and says softly, "You're doing something very brave here, Sevet... " the slight look of guilt she had earlier fills her face, "I should tell you my true name... you see, in the First Creation of my world, to know someone's true name was necessary to use the life force of our world against them, so to this day I rely primarily on my alias... but you deserve to know who you are taking a risk for. My name is Wingaurdia."

    She takes a breath before adding,

    "But if you mention that to Brian, or call him anything other than Reclaimer, he will know you are with me. He knows my name already, but do not show that you know."

    "Someone's true name is something always to be cherished," Rhyan speaks up (finally ), nodding. "And you are indeed performing a very brave deed," she adds to Sevet.

    "Make me feel like a hero why don'cha?" Sevet says, trying to diffuse their guilt with a bit of sarcasm. "Fair's fair then, Siri. Number Seventeen." he says with a hand to his chest. Realizing that might require just a bit of clarification he adds, "Before I picked Sevet, I was number seventeen of seventy two. It won't give you cosmic power, but it might piss me off something fierce."

    "Ohhhh, and there's that place on the hill right? The big black shiny tower. I bet they totally have stuff worth stealing and junk."

    "Hm, a good idea, but I think I'm taken with the Holowtinns now. A big mess of tunnels just sounds too fun to pass up." Decides Ana. "But yes! More people. Gonna have to go recruit. I'll probably look around the Den, Trog's, maybe that villain place- AMEN, was it? Gonna have to be a little careful though, make sure we don't alert anyone to the plan too soon."

    "Number Seventeen hardly defines you, Sevet." she tells him. "You are much more than a number."

    Then she gets a little twinkle in her eye.

    "A few hints to get along with Brian. First, Brian is his given name and he hates being called by it. Don't ask any questions about his family or where he's from. Take initiative from time to time, I think if you tell him you got me to offer you a job it will impress him. Celestial society values individuals who take initiative and holds back those that do not. Call him 'Sir.' If in doubt, ask yourself "what would a military commander want of his subordinate in this situation?" that line of reasoning should steer you right.

    Any other questions?"

    "Will do."

    Winguardia tells Sevet.

    "Well, ladies, who's with me?" she stands up and prepares to head out, which involves paying her tab.

    Merideth nods, "Yeah, it would be nasty if this got to the goblins before we were ready. They deal with thieves all the time, so if we're going to kick them out on their behinds, we have to take them by surprise, right?" That raises the problem of how Ana is going to recruit sufficient minions without attracting attention, but that can be brought up later.

    "Sure thing!" Merideth slides away from the bed, the linens unraveling from her form to be replaced with wood once again. The sheets and blanket go back to their exact position on the bed, not ruffled in the least.

    "Let us depart then, and see what ruffians we can acquire." Merideth will follow Ana back out to the tavern proper, if the Chimera wishes to lead.

    "Onwards, to glory and villainy!" Ana declares, raising one hand as she whisks her way back into the main room, skipping through the hallway and over to the bar. She takes a seat on a stool, and spins around while looking for anyone who might make a good minion.

    "I tend to get along quite well with those I work with. Usually, because I only work with those I do," the Shadow Stalker replies, shrugging, and standing, so that she can follow Winguardia when the winged woman leaves. "And now, I'm afraid I have to go. Hopefully, I won't see you again."

    A six foot tall woman in leather armor steps into the Den. Her armor is legitimate leather armor, as opposed to, say, a leather two-peice that is useless in real battle. This is hard leather, thick and ready for real battle. She does not have any weapons on her, but she carries a degree of danger around her.

    She slides into a seat next to Ana, and looks around. Seedy place. She likes it.

    Merideth glides up to sit next to the unknown tall woman, discreetly examining her. The unbound elemental is back to being serene and graceful wood, for now, although as she sits some of the bar railing molds into her arms, giving them a glistening sheen.

    "Feel free to order more food, Ana. We may be here a while." Pleasant conversation is the order of the day it seems.

    "Well hello there!" Ana chirps to the woman seated beside her, stopping her spinning to focus on conversation. "You've got the look of an adventurous sort. I don't suppose you'd be interested in a job?"

    At Merideth's suggestion she looks up at the menu. "Hm... I think I could probably go for something lighter. They need to sell snacks. Mushrooms are good and all, but doesn't satisfy a munchy urge." She waves down Daggernose. "Hey, could you guys make some breadsticks? Could I get that? I'd really appreciate it."

    Then she turns back to the new lady! "My friend and I- this is Merideth by the way, and I'm Ana- are looking for some companions to help carry out a mission that we have in mind. It'd pay well, but might be a bit dangerous."

    The woman looks at this young lady. Well, she doesn't seem to fit in here. "Connie," she replies. "And danger might be a nice change of pace. What do you have in mind?"

    She turns her attention to Merideth, looking at the... thing. Sometimes "Connie" wonders if this human act is worth keeping up, if things like that can walk the streets. Meh, no reason to have people not underestimate her. Plus, she's not sure if this eager girl would be willing to hire a demon.

    That said, if either of the two have supernatural senses, Connie will show up as a demon.

    "Well, the precise nature of the plan is subject to change, but I'm looking to establish myself as a villain and am looking to acquire a base." Ana says, a twinkle in her eye. "So naturally I'm looking for like minded individuals- which is why I'm here!"

    Rather straightforward of her, really.

    Daggernose brings over her breadsticks, which Ana thanks him and pays him for, munching on one as she turns back to Connie. She can't sense that Connie is a demon- heck, she doesn't even know if Connie is a law enforcer or someone who might summon such people, but she's confident anyway. Maybe she's just lucky, or maybe she doesn't care. Or, maybe she is just not all that smart in terms of planning.

    Merideth doesn't seem to react to Connie's inspection of her, but if Connie looks closely enough she'll see the corner of Merideth's mouth turn up, and an eye swivel to meet her gaze.

    Other than that, she might as well be a perfectly carved statue, some art deco piece that's part of the bar.

    As the patrons converse with one another the door to the tavern opens without much of a sound. An inquisitive young adult enters the main room. He is clothed in dark blue cloth armor which covers most of his body, excluding the eyes. This particular wears a white tabard which has red symbols and writing covering it, with an odd eye being the most prominent feature. He has hair which looks like sandpaper, and eyes the color of an emerald. Slung over his back is a single sheathed sword, and at his waist are a couple of small sacks. ((See my avatar for a clear-cut representation.))

    Entering rather silently, he stops in the doorway and glances around for a prolonged period of time. This person notices a disgusting small creature kissing some female human's hand while she holds conversation with another woman and... a spirit? He's not quite sure what he's observing right now, but it's rather disturbing.

    "...Just what kind of creatures are these? I must have been transported pretty far from Hyrule to be in the presence of such things..."

    Suddenly he speaks up in a stern voice: "Do any of you peculiar... creatures happen to know where the Queen is?" The man asks as if it's rather common knowledge to who he references.

    "Augh!" Ana pulls back her hand from the disgusting halfling, pulling away so fast that she nearly falls off her stool. "You- uh- please don't touch me." She request, looking over him with revulsion. "Can you maybe... well, bathe?"

    She scoots her stool a bit away from him, glancing back at Connie. "Well I do have an idea, but I'd prefer not to release information until a later point. You know, prevent moles and such. You'll have a chance to opt out after hearing the goal."

    Peering over at the newcomer, she decides to address his question as well. "Queen? What queen? There are a lot of queens, y'know."

    Rather than even acknowledge the wobbly and filth encrusted halflings, Merideth instead turns to the blue covered man with an air of mirth and joy.

    Quite suddenly, her wooden form goes stiff, and those that can see magic will note the spectral form leave it and quickly attempt to fly above this newcomer's head.

    Just a second later, the wooden form left behind begins to melt back into the surrounding floor, stool and bartop, and another one is drawn from the ceiling to become Merideth once more, now hanging upside down and partially made of a light fixture.
