    "Doctor's good. Lots of knowledge and stuff. Hopefully, anyway. What did you research, anything in particular?" Jack isn't too knowledge about her body, and isn't even sure if she needs a doctor or a vet if she gets hurt. It probably depends on the injury and if it transfers when she shifts. Which is something I need to think about.

    Mostly I researched biochemistry, new medicines, that sorta stuff. Did some work in virology as well. Nigel really doesn't wanna bore this guy with his work. I did get to consult on this actually. He holds up his metallic hand. This at least can be passably interesting, he supposes.

    A surgical prosthesis. Got all the tools in it I need to do anything up to the more complicated brain surgeries. As he speaks his hand shifts and changes, fingers sliding back into the main body of his arm to be replaced by various scalpels and needles, before shifting back into a regular hand.

    "That sounds really interesting, but... My tribe don't mine, or smelt metal. They're stone age, basically. I don't know what most of those words mean." Jack doesn't have the knowledge base to understand virology, amongst other things.

    Oh, right, uh... Nigel waves his hands in the air as if he's trying to conjure the words he needs. Chemistry is just stirring stuff together to make new stuff, uh, virology is studying diseases, a prosthesis is a replacement for a limb, and surgery is cutting people open to fix internal injuries. He counts off on his fingers. That was all the complicated stuff he said right? Probably.

    So wait like... making spears and hunting mammoths stone age? Nigel did not pay a lot of attention to history.

    "Not quite, there's humans who don't shift nearby. But we were nomadic until we moved into an abandoned petrol station. That's the central building; most live in nests, or huts built like nests scaled up to human size. We do some hunting, mostly we do gathering and scavenging. We trade with our neighbours, but besides some weaving we don't make things to trade, we scavenge or steal them from ruins or whatever." So stone age in the sense all their technology- from metallurgy up- is imported.

    Wait your whole tribe in a- oh right, right, birds. This whole set up makes a lot more sense when you remember they can all be birds. You seem smart enough though - you could probably reverse engineer some stuff. Get up to bronze age at least. Nigel believes in you crow people. You can do it.

    "We could, but... Nobody's interested in smelting. Or mining. I don't like holes, and I can't think of anyone who would, given the chance, willingly go down a hole to whack at rocks with a pickaxe to get rocks to melt to make metal. We're smart, but... We're also quite lazy. They're happy the way they live, and don't want to change it. I didn't like that, so I left, and came here. Inside." That's the big thing. Humans will go down a hole to get rocks to melt into metal if they're promised food; the jackdaw-people would rather say no, I'm not doing that, I'll get my own food thank you.

    I'll be honest I also don't wanna head down into a hole and hit rocks with a stick. That sounds like hard work. Nigel agrees, going back to his whiskey. Some people do it though. They tell me it's fun. Weirdos. The mining they did was a lot more dangerous than the mining Jack is talking about.

    "Most jobs are hard work. That's why I don't have one. And I don't really want or need one." Which means Jack is living the same way as the rest of her people, but she's doing it in the city, not the middle of nowhere.

    They have their good points sometimes. When some joker comes in half-dead from fist-fighting a monkey and you patch them up again it feels excellent. Up until they go back for round two but there ain't no cure for idiocy.
    Nigel does not have a very high opinion of his fellow man. Maybe you just haven't found the job right for you or whatever? That's good advice right? Some people have definitely given him that advice before.

    Lynx Thornheart walks into the tavern, then looks around taking in the current diners and drinkers. Quite a good mix of people. He loves it when there's a mix of people.

    The cat-person is wearing a black leather biker jacket over a white t-shirt, along with jeans and combat boots. He looks almost like a rambunctious biker ready to start a fight. I say almost because he has one thing that breaks the illusion, a black walking cane with a skull topping it which Lynx is walking with. If anybody can detect magic, they will detect a strong aura of magic emanating from the cane.

    He sits atop a bar stool, leaning his cane up against the bar, and orders a Feline Fancy. He looks at his cane and appears to be talking to it.

    Yeah it's probably crap advice anyway. Nigel shrugs and finishes his drink. So aside from getting strangers drunk in bars and flitting about the rooftops what do you do for fun. Got any hobbies or...? Nigel so desperately needs a hobby. None of the people he works with are any fun.

    Someone else is at the bar. A small, amber-colored dragon is ordering something. "Another pint of ale, good sir! Don't look so concerned, it's only my fifth!" The dragon takes his drink, and raises it to his mouth, only to notice Lynx's cane. He stops, and stares, fingering a little silver eye on a necklace of odd charms he wears.

    Lynx sees the dragon staring at the cane and stops talking to it. He smiles. It would seems he's found someone who can sense the magic around the cane. He gets his drink and takes a quick sip before turning toward the dragon and, still grinning, saying, "I see you've noticed my cane. I mean, I know it's nice and fancy, but it's not really something people would stare at."

    "Well... Both those activities are very fun, and if I flit for long enough, I'll find somewhere new or something interesting. Or a stranger to get drunk. So no, I don't really do much else. I read if it's rainy or cold, but mostly I do just flit around. How about you? What do you do in your spare time, just sit with strangers in bars and get drunk, or anything more?" But really, if you could fly, would you really bother doing anything else?

    Nigel stares at his empty glass for a few seconds before answering.

    A lot of it revolves around drinking. Jeez that's a bit depressing. He seems to make up his mind about something. You ever take anyone else flitting around those rooftops with you?

    Jack smiles slightly. "Sometimes, but I'm not that big as a whole bird, and I'm too heavy to fly if I keep my size. So usually I only flit about the rooftops with people who can already fly, although I know a few hidden, private places legs can reach as easily as birds. You OK with heights? And, uh, not too wobbly?" There's a whole code to the sky-people's language, and Jack knows it.

    Yeah my balance is ok. I dunno if it's as good as someone who can literally turn into a bird but it's alright. Nigel promises. I can't just sit around drinking for the rest of my life right?

    He's going to have to integrate into this place somehow. It certainly doesn't look like returning to his old job is an option.

    Adir has a little laugh at C4's impression. It wasn't bad. The stag inclines his head at the kickboxing suggestion. "Well, I don't know how to kickbox, but I am pretty good in a fight. I can teach you a lot of things. Do you have much other experience with martial arts, brawling, etcetera?"

However, Poirot manages to maintain his grip on the bag, turning the fight into something like a tug-of-war.

    "Lady of Light? Sounds, um, nice?" Gudrun asks hesitantly, not sure if "nice" might come off as a bit dismissive for describing a god. "I never spent much time studying the gods back home. But it sounds like she has quite the following? I think there was a bit of bickering between individual churches back home - too many gods, not enough worshippers."

    Lynx nods and says, "I suppose not. The style has been done by voodoo men, but most people wouldn't want to be mistaken for that either." He shakes the talon heartily. "Lynx Thornheart, and ditto on the service thing."
    "Why the cane then, if you're not a necromancer or a voodoo man?" Erasmus seems puzzled.

    Lynx raises an eyebrow and inspects his cane, starting to say, "No reaso-" before stopping suddenly, eyes rolling back in his head. They come back down to the normal position, but they've changed from blue with round pupils to red with slit pupils.

    Red-eyed Lynx, without pausing even a beat says, "Zaphiel is trying to get you to reveal your magic-sensing capabilities even though we all know you have them. I find it boring and a waste of time. So I have taken control of Zaphiel." Still not stopping for even a second, he stiffly holds out his hand and says, "I am Nox."
    Linklele made my awesome avatar! Thank you so much!
