Not long ago, she returned to the campsite glowing, and I understand something profound had happened to her. But she seems just like she was, just... subtly different."
    [Ironoak Cabin]

    Ruth nods. "Good eye. I never spent a lot of time with her before recently, but suffice it to say that you're quite correct. I hope to see more of her, that's for sure." She focuses once again on the baby she's holding, rocking side-to-side and singing a funny little song.

    "I hear Cheasadh got adopted. I never spent time with her - though Asher says she once made him cry - but it gladdens my heart to hear that she has a better family. How is she?"
    She asks.

    [Daycare]

    All emotion drains from Asher's face, leaving a blank expression. He didn't know what he expected, but it definitely wasn't that. "Uhh..." Then, a better answer than he could have hoped for comes to him. "You s-seem to like art stuff, so I made art stuff, too. See? It looks like y-you!" And indeed it does! "B-Because I want to be f-friends!" He declares, smiling a smile that's meant to make her feel more at ease.

    "And you will get to draw once you've calmed down," Reelshka says as she puts Balthuk into a nearby crib. Then she goes to try to pick up the crayons and put them back into the box, ignoring Annie.

    [Ironoak Cabin]

    Reelshka smiles.

    "Yes, my sister and her husband adopted her. I didn't know she'd done that to Asher... it took her some time to grow out of her first family's influence. But she's got better and now she has a new home. Brinika is happier than I've ever seen her to have a sister. My sister and her husband had always wanted more children than just her, but couldn't."

Achilles...has a tendon named after him? Atalanta...has anybody even heard of her? It's still likely he wouldn't know what kind of hero she's talking about.

    She would elaborate, but she already feels like she has been talking too much, so she is instead content on just following in silence.

    "Ah. The legendary hero type. You dream of your tales and exploits being passed down through the ages." Reinholdt frowns a little, but it's a bit hidden since he's leading the way for Melissa. He doesn't think he could be much help for a Legendary Hero. "I hope you're prepared for a lot of training montages."

    Upon reaching where Sophie works, Rein knocks loudly on the door.

    Melissa nods, to show that he's basically right. Legendary heroes, classical heroes, whatever. Same difference.

    "I am always prepared for training montages," she says. "In fact, I'm expecting one to start up any moment now."

    ...She waits.

    Waits outside the door, I mean, not waiting for a training montage.

    The office would be a small cabin Sophie has claimed and repurposed for her therapy sessions. When the door opens, the two will see the short, dark-skinned resident therapist of the League. She looks much like Reinholdt remembers her, but there is a wedding band on her hand now.

    "Oh, hello, Reinholdt. Who is this with you?" she asks.

    Reelshka can scoop up some of them, but Annie realizes what she's doing and snatches up a few before Reelshka can get them. "No! Give them back!" She screeches.

    Rosabel and Orlane keep their distance. They know when someone is in trouble.

    "You can have your crayons back once you've calmed down and thought about what you're doing," Reelshka says, her tone not warming or wavering even a little bit. "I will be talking to your parents later, too."

    [Ironoak Cabin - Father and Son]

    At a different time than when Ruth came by to visit, Tuskfang is striding purposefully through the cabin and around it, looking for his dad. He has the expression of a small person who has a lot of questions. Of course, he's entered the age when kids ask about everything.

    Ruth smiles back and nods. "That's all good news, I am glad. I shall like to meet them, and Cheasadh too. With Asher, if possible." Maltrika gets her nose gently booped. "I don't think I've ever met Brinika, either, but Asher talks about her a lot. It's an opportunity to meet new people!"

    At Reelshka's last statement, Ruth quite noticeably stiffens as though to keep from interfering, then relaxes so as not to trouble the baby. She decides not to pry. So she focuses on dangling the baby's toy over her, as play, but it's quite clear she wouldn't mind talking more about it.

    Reinholdt looks the same as always. Supernaturally hot with too many layers of leather clothing. The only way he could look more like an adventurer would be if he was wearing a potion bandolier.

    "This is Melissa Megalos. Melissa, this is Sophie." Rein steps aside to ensure they can see each other and/or shake hands. "Melissa found a very old pamphlet for GLoG and was interested in the redemption program. She's hoping to learn the temperment necessary to become a Legendary Hero." You can hear the capitalization in those words.

    "I thought she'd best talk to you."

    Maltrika grabs her nose as it's bopped, then squeaks. She reaches up for her toy with a wolfy grin on her face.

    "That can be arranged. They both live in Underside now, but visit here often. I know Asher likes her. She's... I suppose it's a bit as if she wanted to make up for not having siblings by having enough energy for three kids. She's curious, passionate and musical. Has a very nice singing voice.

    Annie purses her lips closed and looks like she's about to explode. But suddenly she dials it back, though her face is still bright red. She grabs the stack of paper and marches off with the crayons she was able to grab before.

    Reelshka breathes out, before turning to Rosabel and Orlane.

    "Do you have all the crayons you need?"

    She's willing to consider it a victory, but not if Annie walks away with some of the other girls' crayons.

    Melissa smiles and looks at Sophie, who is now visible now that Rein is out of the way. "A pleasure," she says, holding her hand out to shake.

    At first, I was going to recommend Rein leave the room because I remembered that after extended periods of time, the sound of her voice induces paranoia into people but then after double-checking what I had written about her a while ago, I remembered that it only happens when she gets emotionally involved with the situation. So, both of them are safe from her voice, for now. "He's completely correct about what he said," she adds, confirming what Rein said about her.

    Then, she adds: "Someone told me GLoG might be the right place, even though, according to him," she points at Reinholdt, "GLoG seems to have shifted its focus to other important things."

    "We haven't used the word 'redemption in a while, but we still don't turn away anyone who needs help," Sophie says, in a matter-of-fact, reassuring tone. She's here to help and everything is going to be fine. It's hard to doubt it when she says it. "What do you think you need in order to be come a Legendary Hero?" She matches the audible capitalization of the words perfectly.

    "I think so." Orlane says uncertainly when they're addressed. That could have been more of an explosion. They'll sit back down and grab up their sticks and take the crayons. Looks like they'll be good to continue playing, but they shoot the odd wary glance in the direction Annie stormed off for now.

    "Hence why Asher likes her." Ruth replies with a chuckle. Curious, passionate and musical are three words that describe Asher, as well. She nods to herself, realizing what Reelshka means by 'small family'. "That's good! I understand what you mean. I'm in a large family, myself, but I have Asher." Her smile drops a little bit. "Our interactions have mostly been more down-to-earth, and I treasure that, but allow me to refer to my more angelic matters from time-to-time?" She adds. "I say this because you're on the leadership council. If there's any way I can help the league in less down-to-earth capacities, I'm gladly available."

    She gently cuddles Maltrika with both hands, drops the ball for the baby to hold and begins rocking slowly side-to-side and singing a lullaby, so she can join her brother in getting a nap.

    Oh no, that doesn't make Asher feel good! That answer deflates him a little bit, and his smile turns upside-down, but he is undeterred! "Can we be f-friends after drawing? I'll w-wait!" And he will, he's very patient! Ish! "I'll d-draw too, even!"

    Reinholdt waves his hand dismissively. "I still think you're in the right place regardless," He tells Melissa.

    "Regardless, I'll leave you two to it. I still need to go find a willing female host for drider babies." Reinholdt turns to head out and give them room to figure out if Melissa wants to stay here. See, didn't even need voice induced paranoia to get him to leave. He has his own perfectly good reasons to make his exit.

    Melissa waves off Reinholdt, and wishes him "Good luck, that sounds really fun."

    To answer Sophie's question she looks down at her hand as she counts out three things on it. "There's basically three things I think I'll need to become a legendary hero," she says, not capitalizing it in her own voice, "namely, in order from most important to least, first: the proper temperament, because heroes are normally loud, friendly, and bombastic, right?" As she asks that, she looks up briefly at Sophie, before returning her gaze to her hand. "Second most important would be control over my blessings because, you know, it's hard to be a hero if you keep on accidentally hurting others."

    "Finally, and probably the least important of the three - but still pretty important," she adds, "would be a better ability to control my actions and myself in the heat of the moment." She can lose her temper.

    Maltrika yawns and begins to drift off as she's rocked and hears a lullaby. Reelshka's voice goes more quiet now.

    "I don't mind it at all if you mention your... angelic duties or anything like that. I suppose I'm just a very down to earth person. Even being able to see spirits hasn't changed that. I don't know what we could use such power for, but if anything comes up, it's welcome. Villains and other troublemakers haven't bothered us in a while, but if they do, it'll be good to have someone who can scare them off."

    [Sophie's Office]

    If Sophie is in any way surprised by Reinholdt's parting words, she doesn't show it.

    "I can certainly help you with the latter two, but the first one sounds a little suspicious to me. Why should heroes behave any particular way and not another?"

    [Dragon Therapy - Lucy]

    "To stop hiding from your problems, to start," Sophie says gently. "We'll keep working and see if we can find a solution to your problems. But it has to start by facing them. You've made the first step by coming here."

    "That one is actually the easiest to explain," Melissa says. Hence why it was first, presumably. "If you're not loud, how are people supposed to know that you're there to help?" she asks, explaining the first part.

    "If you're not friendly, how are people supposed to know you're not a villain?"

    And then, finishing out the symmetry of the statements, she says one last question. "And if you're not bombastic, how are people supposed to know that you're a hero?"

    "That's how every hero acts."

    In her own mind, she's kind-of got a good point. If you lack one of those three traits, then you won't be able to do any hero-ing. Rude, quiet, and antisocial girls like her obviously can't be heroic. At least, that's what she thinks.

    "Being friendly is a good attitude to have regardless of one's calling," Sophie agrees. "But loud and bombastic? I've met plenty of heroes who were anything but. And more than one person who was loud and bombastic but hardly a hero. Heroism is the kind of thing that is proven by actions, not how loud you are about it."

    Melissa shrugs.
    "Well, I guess you'll just have to convince me later, then." If she stays here, there'll probably be plenty of time to explain what personality traits you need to be a hero.

    But while they're still on the subject, she returns a question. "What traits would you say are necessary, then?"

    At a different time than when Ruth came by to visit, Tuskfang is striding purposefully through the cabin and around it, looking for his dad. He has the expression of a small person who has a lot of questions. Of course, he's entered the age when kids ask about everything.
    Tuskfang will find his father laying on his back, half under his and Reelshka's bed as he works on tightening up the screws keeping it together. His paw is scrabbling for the screwdriver just out of reach. "Hello, son. What's up?" He asks, having heard Tuskfang's feet on the floor. He grunts and squirms just enough to be able to reach the screwdriver, but his tail wags at the prospect of taking a break to talk to his son.

    The alien's suit shimmers, turning semi-translucent for a brief moment and revealing a layer of solar cells beneath the surface. "My ship was trailing the one that crashed, so perhaps a day or two?" She reasons. "Is there a guest house or cabin I could stay in and take a shower in? And once my ship arrives, I can easily repay the help and hospitality with some of my supplies and research."

    "To be a hero? I'd say it's willingness to help others, even at your own expense and for no reward," Sophie says without hesitation. "Even without so much as a 'thank you'. And to keep going even when everyone says you're wrong. Or if you really were wrong."

    [Ironoak Cabin - Father and Son]

    "I wanted to ask about spirits, dad," Tuskfang begins, without much of an introduction. "Because I was wondering about them. I can see them because you're a shaman, right? And mommy can see them because she has a gift. But who gave her a gift? She said goblins don't have shamans."

    Melissa listens, then says, "Obviously, I completely disagree with you," she responds. Well, there are some of that makes some sense but as a whole she still disagrees.

    "The former just makes you a nice person, if a bit gullible and easily taken-advantage-of, and the latter is the exact opposite of heroic," she explains. She has very specific ideas of what a hero should be.

    ...
    Then, realizing she may have come off a little rude and close-minded, she quickly adds, "But, um, thanks for your opinion."

    Tsk. That complete lack of reaction is exactly why Rein stopped showing up for therapy. Bah. It wouldn't hurt Sophie to display human emotions once in a while. Ah well. The goal wasn't a reaction, but to test the waters in the most circumvented way possible to see if either were interested. It seems unlikely.

    So the search continues! Rein will now wander aimlessly through the area as he seeks out help.
