    [Guy's Night Out]

    Assuming they scan Harnel too, he's a bit of an odd case. His genome is entirely human, which suggests he should be a normal human, not the half-dragon that stands before them. Also under the influence of alcohol, a few weird types of energy suffuse his body. Most notably, elemental fire (duing to being a half-red dragon) and a second, less definable energy. Likely what's mutated him so far from what his genome proscribes.

    The female scans Harnel, yes. She immediately gets excited and shows the male the results. He is also very excited by this, and pulls out a rather clunky-looking device and scans Harnel with it.

    Yes, after much trouble they made a basic magic scanner. While not really high-quality, it should give them a better idea than their other scanner could.

    Cave of Being

    A genius loci and a demon in human form... Huh. It hardly seems wise to seal one within the other, not the Wizard at least, who would think that if the cave's magic provided food to the explorers, it might well provide a method of escape to the demon. But then, it would seem the demon is still very much here, so-

    Ms. Bloodplunder speaks and the Wizard very nearly leaps out of his skin with surprise, grabbing the third tablet and letting the others fall to the floor as he whirls round to face the speaker. Who are you?! What are you doing here?

    Oh. Only an old lady. A very dangerous old lady and some kind of monstrous race, but no demon. Or so the Wizard would hope. I'm an adventurer myself, here for much the same reasons. Except... I don't think mere bludgeoning will keep this in check. It would appear that the source of these quakes is a bound demon.

You guys can maybe get started on, I don't even know, the counters or the sitting area? Or do you guys just want to go straight to the bathrooms."

    Mrs. Bloodplunder is, in fact, entirely human. "It's bound? Good. Means it won't try to run away. And there's nothing 'mere' about my bludgeoning." Her flail is enchanted to make its hits harder and its weight heavier to everybody it's hit by whilst it's lighter to the person carrying it. Although even without that, I wouldn't want to be hit by Mrs. Bloodplunder's flail.

    [Guy's Night Out]

    Harnel nods as they continue to scan him, "Seems odd." He's not exactly worried, given they don't appear to be hostile, but it's still pretty weird.

    His body is entirely suffused with elemental fire, with a lot of it centered in a small extra organ attached to his heart, lungs, and stomach. It should also show that he doesn't digest food normally, as his body breaks down most of what he consumes into elemental energy for his own use.

    The second type of energy is best described as emanating from his soul, and while it also suffuses his body, it's much more subtle about it. It's mutative but stable, locked into the single form that Harnel is in now; theoretically, if this energy were to be applied to another creature, it would become a half-red dragon, but only if it was applied to them while they were in growth. As an adult, it's relatively dormant.

    The magic scanner works! Yes! They are very excited about this!

    And the results are very cool, too! The elemental fire is interesting, and that other energy is also very fascinating... a pity their ramshackle magic sensor can't get that much information.

    Ramshackle for them, that is.

    The male approaches Harnel, explains something to him, and then... asks him something? The female, however, is pulling out some vaguely tube-like object with itty bitty needles on one end.

    The male shakes his head, and pulls out a tablet, and after a few taps shows Harnel a picture of a DNA strand. Now... he's doing something... there is a flow chart...

    The female, who apperantly has a better grasp on the whole "they don't understand our language" situation, is looking annoyed at the male.

    Oh? I could swear Mrs. Bloodplunder was an orc.

    Uhm, no ma'am, I'm sure there isn't. But in my experience demons are hardly vulnerable to any bludgeoning, no matter how fierce. Although if anyone could beat a demon to death, the Wizard would wager it to be Mrs. Bloodplunder. I think maybe it would be best if we simply renewed the binding upon it. This tablet here holds the ritual.

    Harnel blinks at Wenomir, "What's DNA? Why do I have it?"

    The SETs may realize this may be a bit tougher than flowcharts and diagrams.

    She married an orc, and has a half-orc son, but is in fact fully human, or at least human as far back into her ancestry as she knows, so that's just as far as her great-great-grandfathers on both sides.

    "In that case, you need to either hit it harder, hit it somewhere else, or both." Mrs. Bloodplunder doesn't have much patience with wizards, feeling that hitting people with magic isn't as fun as hitting people with something large, heavy, and most importantly, blunt, though preferably spiked. Swords are, therefore, out of the question.

    The male begins drawing on his tablet, ready to explain the whole thing right here-

    Oh, no. The female stops him and hands him the needle thing.

    She gestures at the thing, then at Harnel, and shows him her tablet. It's the word "Please."
