    Standing six-foot-five (about two-hundred centimeters) is a very large woman. Curvy as well as muscular, she carries herself like a fighter. Her hands and feet, though mostly bare, are wrapped the same way a martial artist might have them. She wears a set of clothes taken from Cassidy - cargo pants, a gray tanktop, and a jacket - and due to the size difference between the women, Charity's body (particularly her figure) is making the clothing strain somewhat.

    She's also clearly not human. Her body is covered in fine black scales, like that of a snake, and running down her back and arms are stripes of glowing, pale green skin. Glowing amber eyes look out at the world from under a large, white, bony crest, and, almost at odds with the color scheme of the rest of her body, blond hair cascades out from behind her crest, down to her shoulders.

    "So how do we go about this?" Charity asks, her voice carrying an odd resonance with it.

    "Long time no see, Cassidy," says a voice as the thoroughly unimposing figure of MERC's chief executive walks into the room. "Who is it you've brought us?"

    "If we're lucky, we'll cone across one of the lieutenants, or maybe even --" Cassidy looks around to Dipsnig. She had to figure out where his timing sense came from.

    "Been underground, boss. Good to see you again." She gestures to indicate Charity. "This is Charity; she's new to the Nexus. I was looking to see about getting her a license."

    "No need for specifics, the poison can be kept in any poison jar, though I wouldn't advise touching it without some form of protection." Dena replies. "As for the price, well, the most simplest thing would be money of course. But the price would be pretty high. Perhaps a trade would be better? Do you have anything that mercenaries could have use of?"

    To her credit, Charity only hesitates briefly before nodding her head respectfully to the goblin in front of her, "I'm used to fighting; I figured if I can make money off it, there's no reason not to."

    Dipsnig's ears flick.

    "A license is easy, I just have to put her information into our database." He taps the bracer on his arm, pulling up a holographic spreadsheet. "Name and contact information, to start with."

    "I figured it still was. It'll be a good start while you get used to the drek the Nexus will throw at you," Cassidy says to Charity. "Once you've got some jobs under your belt, we can see about a full membership, right, boss?"

    Chairty goes, "Mmm," in a sort of grunting agreement, "Charity, Child of Szaemel. I just got to the Nexus though, so I don't really have contact information yet."

    Charity, for her part, has enough tact to not kneel down to Dipsnig. He's not even half her height, but doing that would just be disrespectful.

    "Name's Dipsnig Razortooth, the CEO here," Dipsnig says. "Though I suppose Cassidy told you that. We get plenty of Nexus newcomers here, so all we need for now is a reliable way to contact you."

    "I can grab you a commlink, if you don't have a phone or something like that. Unless you've got magic for that too? Never got how wizards do that stuff." Cassidy shrugs. "Your pick, really."

    Dipsnig taps the holograph a few times, his ears lowering.

    "Since there's a member vouching for you, I'll accept that. A license entitles you to discounts in Erin's Emporium and Azik's Enchantments, both adventurers' stores, and three taverns - Trog's Tavern, Black Dragon's Den and Bloodsong's Oasis. We'll also intervene if an employer is treating you unfairly. The price is a percentage of your profits."

    "Bloodsong- that's a new one. I've been hiding out a while." Cassidy shrugs. "Maybe I'll check that out sometime. And hey, if anyone gives you crap, you let me know and I'll kick their ass." Not the most reassuring thing from someone Charity's already beaten, but hey, she's trying.

    Corvus considers for a moment.

    "I'm not entirely sure I have anything you can use, unless you happen to be a Chosen of Luna. I could, perhaps, craft something for you, though. Honestly, I've no idea what mercenaries here might make use of; where I'm from, a stout sword or a good bow is usually enough to put food on the table for the soldier-for-hire. If you give me a rough idea of what you might find useful, though, I could either see about making it myself, or see about acquiring it."
    Why is it Plan A is always, "Get 'Em!" and Plan B is, "Cause as much collateral damage as possible"?

    He can almost hear her amusement. "Food on the table? Please, this is a company, we aim a bit higher than that. We want only the stoutiest of swords. But in my case, armors. I'm asking if you can craft a magical one. I need one that is protective, yet stealthy. Preferably something that can block other magical effects."

    "Unfortunately, a sorcerer I am not; I never had an interest in that kind of lore. However, I'm good at finding things, so while I might not be able to make it myself, we can certainly try to track something of that nature down for you and bring it back," Corvus says thoughtfully. "Are there any more specifics than those you've mentioned that you might find especially valuable?"

    There is a brief pause on the other line. "There is living wood. But I'm not sure it exists in the nexus, nor am I sure I can give you a good description of it. Its essentially tree infused with the soul of an ancestor, sometimes more. It's not something you can just grab though, even if you find it, and it would like be protected. So just how good are you at finding things?"

    Corvus chuckles.

    "I am persistent, and an excellent tracker. I once found a crypt filled with treasure simply by the smell of the dust within." A bit of an exaggeration, but not by much. It wasn't the dust so much as the undead another Exalt had brought as guards while they raided the tomb, but Dena doesn't need to know that. "I used to have a number of contacts that could help with such things as this; but I lost nearly all of them when I wound up in the Nexus. My partner, though, is a priestess of one of the goddesses here, and she has contacts we should be able to use to help locate things. We can do a little research into this 'living wood' you mentioned, and see if it exists here, and if so, how one might obtain it. I might be able to shape something of that nature, too, so long as I know what's required to keep its special properties, so a bit of research and perhaps simply obtaining the material might be enough for me to be able to create what you're looking for."

    "Its extremely durable, otherwise it wouldn't be used for armor or weapons. So if you indeed manage to find some of it, then come back here and you can shape it into an armor for me. If you do that, you can have as much gorgon venom you want."

    Dipsnig taps his bracer a few times and a nearby printer produces Charity's license. He looks as if he's about to hand it to her, but then he realizes how that'd look due to their difference in height. He opts to simply motion for her to retrieve it.

    "I'll see you do." Dena replies before ending the call.

    Astrana shakes her head as she takes back the phone. "Of course not, sir. If there is anything you need from or MERC however, don't hesitate to call. We will be at your service."

    Then the scene can end, which is kinda already did.
