    Alley of Poirot

    "Hrmmph. Fine. How much was it?"

    "Ah..." Leslie looks up from an impatient halfling who has been waiting to use the exit and glances at her clipboard. "Two thousand, six hundred seventy... gil? Is it pronounced gill or jill?"

    "Hmph," Poirot retrieves his wallet and approaches J, not justifying the ignorant newbie with an answer. "Very well. If you will look at this paper money..."

    Once he has J's attention on the small handful of scrip, he suddenly springs into action and grabs at her bag, trying to wrest away what he imagines to be her only weapon.

    Oh good, does that mean we're done talking about dragons?

    Hopefully that means we're done talking about dragons.

    Excessive talking about dragons makes Gudrun nervous, though she doesn't show it too much. She is a trained diplomat after all!

    Well, sort of. Very sort of.

    "Ah, you mentioned a church. What church would that be?" Maybe she can get Renault talking about his home a bit more instead?

    Somebody new enters, and goes to sit down. Well, I say 'new'; they've been here before. They're human, with quite an androgynous appearance. They have short black hair, pale skin and grey eyes. They're wearing a pair of jeans, hiking boots and a red chequered shirt, and they look to be... Probably no older than twenty. It's hard to put down their age; they could be early twenties, but they look more likely to be mid to late teens. It doesn't help their androgynous appearance much, either. Slung over their shoulder is a leather satchel with a stylised bird embossed into the flap.

    They move to a table located reasonably close to the centre and order a lemonade, looking for interesting/attractive people to talk to.

    Somebody New

    Good choice, the bartender couldn't mix a decent drink to save their life. Nigel says as he pulls out a chair and sits himself down across from the androgynous stranger. He's a bald man - probably by choice, judging by his age, looks to be in his late 30s early 40s - with a trimmed goatee framing his mouth. He wears a pale blue coat over a brown shirt, with darker slacks. A complicated utility-style belt sits on his waist, covered with pockets and straps. A satchel of his own hangs over his shoulder until he shrugs it off, leaving it sitting on the floor next to him. A metallic left hand sets down a Rust Monster, half empty despite his protests.

    Nigel, how are you. He adds, by way of introduction, sipping at his drink.

    "I don't tend to drink much alcohol anyway. I'm Jack, pleased to meet you." Jack smiles. Their voice is androgynous too, fitting either a man or a woman rather easily. They take another sip of their lemonade, after. "What brings you here Nigel?"

    Gotta drink somewhere, right? This place is slightly nicer than the den so here I am, feeling fancy. He takes another sip of his drink, frowning a little and setting it down. What about you? Strange place to come if you aren't drinking, right?

    "I am drinking. Just not getting drunk. Besides, I come to look at people, talk to them, see what's up. Y'know?" Like what they're doing now. They come along to talk to people, socialise. Alcohol isn't needed for all that, although some people think it helps.

    Nigel shrugs, conceding the point.

    I guess so. So what's up. He spreads his arms wide, raising his eyebrows at Jack. Bit unfair to ask for an impression straight away but it looks like Nigel is treating it mostly as a joke.

    Jack smiles and looks up. "I see rafters, and eaves. Above that, the second floor bedrooms. Beyond those, I'd guess there's a sky up there somewhere, with clouds and stars and maybe a sun or moon. Possibly birds. What do you think?" Jack took the joke, and raised it one! Except that's quite an old take on the 'what's up' line.

    Jack gets eyes rolled at him for that. Ha ha ha ha. Very funny. Nigel finishes off his drink. What do you do when you aren't cracking bad jokes for strangers? He rocks his glass around on the table a little absentmindedly as he talks, holding Jack's eyes.

    "I went to the beach party a while back. But I don't really have a job. I just... Wander the streets, watching the people, visiting the rooftop tribes and exploring forgotten attics and such." Jack doesn't really have a place to live, either. But they're happy the way they are, seeing their homelessness and joblessness as being freer than all the people they meet who have those things.

    Like When You Said You Felt so Happy You Could Die

    "I'm doing just fine, thank you. If I need money, I do a bit of tour work, or explore an abandoned attic or something. But I am happy to let you buy me another lemonade." Jack's perfectly happy with their life, and dislikes the implication otherwise. Though they realise it's accidental and meant nicely, so don't throw a fuss. But their displeasure comes through in their voice with the first sentence.

    No good, good, sorry. Nigel says, ducking off to the bar and returning with another lemonade and a whiskey on the rocks for himself.

    So you find much cool stuff up there or what? Just... up on the rooftops? He really doesn't understand the appeal of clambering around on rooftops himself, sounds too much like hard work. Still, anything to change the subject.

    "Ooh, thank you. Yes, there's quite a bit up there, if you know where to look and don't upset the residents. People live up there, too. Harpies, sirens, faeries, humans too. Free runners and such. And there's some great views out and about, of parks and so on. It helps if you can cross a street without touching the ground, though. They respect you more. Especially if you do it unaided, by a broom or hoverboard or whatever." Jack nods and takes a mouthful of lemonade, smiling as the fizzy liquid trickles down their throat.

    "I didn't say they respected me, did I? I don't jump across the streets. That'd be crazy. I fly, of course." Jack smiles and holds up an arm, which gets longer, the fingers disappear and it starts to sprout black feathers, before the changes reverse and it turns back into a perfectly normal human arm.

    Oh c-cool. You're a bird... guy then. Nigel is still pretty new, cut him some slack. That some sort of magic transformation? I mean like... obviously magic is involved but... He trails off, not really sure what he's asking about. He nervously takes a sip.

    But That Was Love And It's An Ache I Still Remember

    "It's not magic. Or, well, it is magic. But it's inherent magic. I was born like it, and so was everyone in my tribe. It travels down the mother's line. I can look like this, or a jackdaw, or stop part way. Like I did with the arm. It's... Supernatural, as in nature but super, rather than unnatural. Y'know?" Jack then thinks a moment and takes a swig of lemonade. "It's a bit complicated, but that's why I don't drink alcohol. I'm planning on flying later, and it takes less alcohol to get a bird drunk than a human. Flying into windows does not help a hangover, trust me. It's... Got other effects as well, on my body and anatomy. My hair doesn't get any longer than my feathers do, and my eyes are the same shade as a proper jackdaw's. It also means outsiders have difficulty with our genders. I'm a girl, Nigel. Not a guy." I enjoy the guessing game, and so does Jack, but she answers when it's asked, or corrects when it's wrong.

I mean I guess I understand if you transform before you... process it, but even after it goes through your liver? Nigel is fascinated. Magic is weird and he must understand it.

    "It's fine. I'm happy as I am, taken for male or not." Jack brushes it off; it's not too unusual an occurrence. "I don't know. All I know is, as I get smaller, I have less blood. As I have less blood, my blood alcohol goes up and I get drunker. And I sober up again as I get bigger." Unfortunately, Jack doesn't understand it either. It's just how her body and shapeshifting works. Not how it works for Natalie, either.

    He leans back in his chair with his whiskey, ruminating a bit. I guess there's not many of us here huh? I've met like... 1? I'm not even 100% certain on that. He advises Jack, before staring down into his drink. He takes a longer drink from it.

    Still riding off the high of a successful mission, Arbrim steps into the tavern, waving enthusiastically and laughing in the direction of a small gathering of rough-looking folk in tow, seemingly friends of his. Arbrim himself, over eight-feet tall and quite wide, stares ahead from beneath a tall, wide-brimmed leather hat, his sunken eyes of burning coals shielded by a pair of black shades. The barest hint of his scarred and weathered face can be seen from certain angles, despite the fact that a majority of the alien bounty-hunter's maimed and half-melted face remains hidden behind a dusty, black bandanna and a tall, blood-spattered leather collar. Scars of all shapes and sizes race across his leathery flesh, the wounds never fully having healed due to poor self-stitching, giving him a rather imposing appearance.

    The bounty-hunter wears a long, threadbare leather greatcoat lined with accents of faded silver, worn over a thick breastplate inscribed with silver runes along with a dented, well-worn starmetal gauntlet, decorated with bones and runes similar to his armor. His other hand appears to be a particularly bulky cybernetic limb, each industrial-sized metal finger as thick as a lesser being’s wrist, pipes and pistons visible beneath heavy, spiked plating meant to crush, and grind, and utterly pulverize with brutal efficiency. Dozens of blood-stained bandages cover the prosthesis, and bones taken as trophies from successful ventures now decorate the arm, giving it a frightening, claw-like look. A cracked metal lantern decorated with flecks of gold and silver hangs from his belt alongside a trio of sentient severed heads attached to blackened chains, while a sharp, angular collar rests upon the man's broad shoulders, wrapping about his neck, where it attaches to an enormous black cloak.

    Confidently, he saunters over to the bar along with his small gathering of friends, before sitting down atop a particularly unfortunate looking bar stool which creaks and groans in response.

    "I'll take yer foulest concoction, barkeep."

    "Drinks for all, on me! Hah, time to celebrate!"


    The small gathering cheers and hollers in response.

    Yeah, bad luck, that's for god damned sure. He leans back in, setting his drink back down and drumming his fingers on the table. Lessee, what do I do. Uh... Kinda tricky one! He's got this fancy new job that he's not really allowed to talk about otherwise some sort of... ghost? Tracks him down? He definitely should have paid more attention to his contract.

    Well before I arrived in this hellhole I worked as a doctor. Originally trained as a medical researcher but I got a lot of experience dealing with trauma so I transferred. Not exactly the answer to the question but good enough.
