    "I'll be honest, anyone can technically call themselves a 'scholar'." Ambrosia shrugs. "It's not a earned title, just something some choose to call themselves for any number of reasons." She gestures at Thariza. "Thus, going by that, you are as much of a 'scholar' as I am. Though if we want to be less technical, scholars tend to be people who research and write books about topics of interest. You could for instance be a 'scholar' in crafting by writing a book about the subject, in fact, I know some who have done exactly that regarding runecrafting."

    The scholar will gently attempt to place her armored hand on-top of Thariza's and smile. "So what I'm going to ask you now is if and how you want to continue this, let's call it 'quest of self-discovery'. So far, I've just let you hang around as I go about my business, looking into things that are only tangentially related to my research yet are intended to expand your mental horizons. However, now is perhaps the time for you to do some steering of your own. Is a career in crafting something you could consider? Since that is a subject we could look into, as luck has it."

    [The Mad Fronts]

    "Only fools fear to tread the path of science." Ishmat remarks, seemingly completely oblivious of the professors sinister smile or perhaps only the implications of it.
    Shazhan does not seem as quick to disregard their exchange as they look between the two. "I see you two have hit it off, so perhaps I'm better off not knowing what you discussed." A lie, Shazhan would know exactly what the two talked about within the confines of his own base of operations.
    "So let's get back to business then." The ethereal holds up his bandaged wrist and a holographic is projected from his metal bracer and presses a few buttons. "There you are, I sent you the coordinates to Jinn's 'studio' here in Skyside. Shouldn't be too hard to find, the trick is getting inside but I'm sure you're more than up to that task. All I need to know is when so we can coordinate our actions. Any missteps here and the collective will be on our case faster than most fleshlings blink. So what's the plan? Be precise, I want to be sure we're on the same page."

    Parks and Reanimation

    It might be that 'blue-hood', despite their hooded status, weren't actually a part of the same group as the other two. It might be that everyone that showed up just happened to go for the mysterious-hooded-stranger-in-the-corner-of-the-inn look. Or they might just be idiots. Either is really possible considering what she's seen so far.

    Either way, after a couple of hours blue-hood makes an appearance once again, though this time wearing a black hood. Otherwise, her appearance remains unchanged however as she clipity-clops her way towards Fidelia. "We meet again, young apprentice." She makes a elegant bow before the former slave.
    "Perhaps we can speak more frankly now with the threat of retribution off our necks for the time being. I'm Jaahlyn of no last name, composer of songs and servant of the world. It's an honor meeting someone as brave and self-less as yourself." She smiles underneath her scarf.

Another orc has arrived nearby, but rather than shoot at the gooey man, he'll try to drag the orc that got blasted with buckshot out of the corridor and grab a bottle from inside his jacket, forcing it down the shot orc's throat. The healing potion isn't working very fast; and it's not intended for quite so many serious wounds.

    Several other orcs are closing in with their own mix of pistols, but there's only so many that can fire at once through the doorway they're using as cover.

Unless of course he wants to jump out a window of course, but no standard humanoid would survive that fall. It's more than ten meters to the ground.

    An alternative would of course be going back down the stairs. There is also the fire escape ladder of course but that one is behind the door to the room Jaahlyn is occupying.
    Thundermarket Food Court

    Since we agreed the shotgun will make a fistsize hole in the door the man will put his shotgun at the hole takes a few steps back and then jumps at the hole. Normaly such an act would result in the man just bump against the door, but as he jumps he seems to stretch himself becoming fluid enougth to pass through the hole. The guns will cause a few holes in his body, but non of them seems to stop him. The orcs might notice that there was something else in the goo that wasn't goo. Something metal and the size of a hand.

    Jaahlyn will just see a shotgun dropping down through the hole and shortly after a green goo will follow. There is plenty of time for her to react as the man needs to reform. The holes the orcs shot into him mostly remain for now and don't close.

    The music abruptly stops as Jaahlyn decides its time to skedaddle.
    Pushing the window next to her open she soon emerges outside. The next part would be easy for most people, but quite tricky for Jaahlyn due to her hooves.
    But perhaps her lower body belonged to a mountain goat as she is able to climb down that ladder without any major problems and will let go and drop from the ladder once she's not in danger of fall damage. Easing the fall with a roll as she apparently knows some parkour.

    "It'd be easier than starting from scratch," Thariza says. "Besides, crafting can be many things. I know how to make weapons and repair vehicles, so learning how to make something else is easier than if I wanted to become a farmer, or something. What do you have in mind?"

    KABAL Offices:

    A battered looking man stumbles half-drunk into the main office area, grumbling under his breath as some glitchy device held in his hand fizzes and jams periodically. The device, which appears to be some kind of navigation device, beeps cheerfully as the man steps forward, causing him to mumble a little. "Finally. Stupid... thing." As he lurches over to the office, he just stuffs the thing back into a satchel worn at his side, shaking his head and adjusting his somewhat dented golden helmet. Clad all in a bright blue leather greatcoat patterned with glowing hexagons, with some sort of dented and battle-worn suit of technological armor worn below, the figure would fit the part of the intergalactic mercenary, were it not for the unusually casual-looking pair of jeans worn below.

    Several worn golden bandoliers fitted with heavy looking shells drape over his form, and both his gloves and boots seem technological in some sense, albeit of the slightly damaged, patchwork variety. The golden helmet on his head appears to have been designed to evoke the stylings of the art deco movement popular within some parts of the Nexus. Of note, the helmet appears to come equipped with a pair of built-in goggles, which glow blue in the dim light. On his back, a rifle can be seen, a pair of pistols at his belt. A patch at the front of his coat identifies himself as "Outlaw Blue", whatever that means.

    He promptly removes his helmet, revealing a man that would, perhaps, in certain lighting, be attractive despite his unusual, downcast facial features. He approaches the nearest apparent office worker before mumbling. "This... the, the... the cable?"

    Ambrosia removes her hand from Thariza's. "There is a research project I'm tangentially involved with that focus on runecrafting. Techniques that have been lost to time that might prove very useful, especially to a crafter such as yourself. Normally, no outsiders are supposed to be involved with it but I believe I could make your case if you're really interested. You would likely be involved with it for months however, with little contact with anyone outside it." She explains.

    KABAL Offices:

    As luck would have it, behind a the desk to this particular office sits a only a little over a meter tall gnoll who seems to have seen people waltz in like the man a dozen times already. The suit and armor were new, but every drunkard was different, right?
    Only glancing up from his book (titled "The Dark North: Strangers Handbook") he scoots over a paper form to the man. "If you throw up on anything, they throw you out." He speaks in a broken dialect.

    The form ((And yes, it can't be edited, just copy it and write how he filled it in)).

    Then he goes back to his book, only occasionally glancing back up to the man suspiciously.

    There don't seem to be any more workers than him here, but there are a group of rough-looking soldier types, most gnolls like him, goblins and humans. Most of them seem engaged in loudly talking or just dozing on either on one of the couches or on sleeping bags on the floor. It seems like the offices act like some kind of second home to some of them.

    ...and I thought I had an expensive place.
    Norael thinks to herself as she looks over the manor when she flies over. With a shake of her head she lands at the front entrance and takes a moment to shake off the chill of the flight. "Note to self. bring some boots. With the fur. Even if I don't exactly have "apple-bottom" jeans." In her haste to get here, she'd forgotten to put on shoes entirely but a muttered Warmth spell finishes casting out the rest of the cold, particularly in her toes.

    Once all prepped, her hair straightened, and clothes fixed, the newly changed Angel hits the buzzer and announces her presence.

    The coming and going of Shazhan from the conversation takes a bit of getting used to. The Prof is used to having ample opportunity to ramble away at length, but it's a bit harder to do so in these circumstances.

    Oh well.

    He maintains his smile.

    "The coordinates. Excellent. Well, it's not as elegant as I'd like, but sometimes there's greater risk in overcomplicating things. A stakeout. Simple. I observe their place of residence and monitor the comings and goings. It will be easy enough to tail Jinn whenever they step outside, so it should only be a matter of time before we can confirm the identity of a customer. A regular, ideally, someone Jinn already trusts to some degree. Then I make them my puppet, use them to get inside, and set myself up to observe everything that goes on inside." Affy's smile widens just a little. "The convenience of teaching oneself to think differently is that it makes it very hard for anyone else to pick up on it. I can live in the wires, the lights, everything electronic in Jinn's house. I can exist quietly, in the background, little more than a slight flicker of a light or a subtle surge of electricity here and there, but observing everything. Shouldn't take long at that point to get the ammunition we need to blackmail Jinn. Or if we're lucky, a means to bypass that entirely and make our own way in, just from continued observation of Jinn's actions."

    Blue nods, flashing a somewhat charming grin, before offering a pair of fingerguns to offset whatever charm may have existed prior. "Don't worry, my guy, I never toss up on the job. Bit of a special skill of mine. Yeah." He begins to lean down over the desk, waggling his brows towards the (possibly female?) gnoll as he accepts the form, tracing his gloved fingers over the table in a somewhat suggestive fashion as he accepts the paper, retrieving a stolen pen from his pocket. "Is all this... paperwork really necessary? Surely you recognize..." He whispers at this point, drawing close. "Outlaw Blue, legendary treasure hunter?"

    Upon the inevitable realization that he wouldn't be recognized, Blue begrudgingly fills out the form, asking seemingly irrelevant questions about some of the sentences upon the questionnaires, generally insisting, for whatever reason, upon additional specificity.

    A butler opens the door! He has a dapper bow tie around his neck and... dapper shorts? He is certainly lacking in anything else that might be considered as clothing, bare chested and bare feet. The dignified air he puts on is that purely born of body language and professionalism. The strange butler also has a pair of grayish blue cat ears and a similarly colored cat tail designating him as a catboy. His smile exudes a warm and friendly nature, which must help fend off the chill he surely feels in that outfit. Though admittedly he did not just fly here.

    "Good day ma'am. How may I help you today ma'am?" Butler asks Norael.

Either is really possible considering what she's seen so far.

    Either way, after a couple of hours blue-hood makes an appearance once again, though this time wearing a black hood. Otherwise, her appearance remains unchanged however as she clipity-clops her way towards Fidelia. "We meet again, young apprentice." She makes a elegant bow before the former slave.
    "Perhaps we can speak more frankly now with the threat of retribution off our necks for the time being. I'm Jaahlyn of no last name, composer of songs and servant of the world. It's an honor meeting someone as brave and self-less as yourself." She smiles underneath her scarf.

    At this point, Fidelia can be found sitting on the doorstep of Jenette's apartment building, glancing about a little furtively. She straightens up as she sees the hooded figure approach, but her worry fades away once she recognizes the woman.
    "Er, Fidelia Stahl, just a humble squire." She smiles bashfully. "Well, I-I wouldn't call myself brave or selfless, or anything. Being responsible doesn't make you selfless, I don't think...." The woman pauses for a second. "Um, may I - may I invite you in?"

    "Taking responsibility takes bravery, miss. But you are your own judge, I am just a simple music player." Jaahlyn grins and winks. "And a bit more." She steps towards the door. "But yes, better talk inside. Is this where you live, miss? Not everyone in Skyside has the luxury of a roof over their head which they can call their own." The hooved being looks around and starts removing her hood as they head inside.

    [The Mad Fronts]

    Shazhan considers this for a moment. "I'm not sure Jinn takes fleshling customers. I mean, unlike us they don't need money. Then again, artists are special. It might be wrong of me to assume that they go by anything I would consider logical. But people do say that fleshlings have rubbed off too much." He pauses as he noticed Affy's smile. "Be careful with the electronics in Jinn's studio, some of it might be connected wirelessy to the collective itself and entering that is ill-advised, they protect their tech the same way they 'protect' their members out here. If there is event a hint that someone might be trying to interfere with it, it removes itself and then Jinn is sure to get out of there. Out technology doesn't explode for no reason."

    KABAL Office

    With these gnolls, its kinda hard for humans to tell the gender. Neither gender has apparent bosoms and their facial features are hyena-like so they don't give much clue either. Apparently, the females are supposed to have more prominent nipples and more than two of them but considering they also wear clothes that's not easy to see.

    Thankfully, the gnoll does not seem to notice any suggestiveness in his movement and just gives him a odd look. "Just fill form." The gnoll remarks with a shake of their head. "No special treatment." Then they quickly glance back at their book while he's busy filling it in.
    They scratch their head as he turns it in, looking through it once and then twice. "Okay, go check with doctor Nora in medical office. She give you clean bill of health."

    The gnoll gestures further inside the building where one of the rooms is clearly marked "medical office."

    [Street of Slavers]

    "Don't say that, people will still miss you Thariza. But fair enough, you can go whenever you like though, though the sooner the better admittedly. Perhaps you want to take care of a few things around here first? We could visit HALO so you can take your farewells, I heard they have a new leader now." Ambrosia suggests.

    "I haven't been to HALO in a while," Thariza says. "I went back there after I came back to life, but... it didn't feel right. Not just because the people I'd known weren't there anymore. Even more than before, I came there because I didn't know what else to do. Then I talked to that one cat who made me realize it." She shakes her head. "But I'm rambling. Going there to announce that I'll be away won't hurt."

    Blue nods, pursing his lips in an expression of mock professionalism. After crossing his arms over his chest and firing off a pair of fingerguns, the mercenary winks and heads towards the direction suggested to by the gnoll. "You got it, ma'am." At that, he enters what he assumes to be the medical area.

    Once inside, he'll find the nearest place to wait.

    Fidelia chuckles awkwardly, but chooses not to further engage in the philosophical debate of responsibility and selflessness. She was never quite that skilled with words to begin with. "Well, it's not my place exactly. It's Jenette's, the woman I'm hoping to repay. I-I hope you can see why I feel like I owe her such a thing." The apartment isn't terribly well off, all things considered. "Can I, uh, get you some water, or some orange juice?"

    Arkant nods as he takes notes on a paper that appeared out of nowhere.

    "Obviously a high level necromancy spell, since she kept her mind. Maybe soul binding." he mumbels as he writes things down.
    Arkant nods aand pulls out a syringe for the 'blood' if any and also cuts a bit of skin into a bag.
    "That should work. Here take this card if you need to contact me." and he offers a business card with his address. "Do you have any questions?"

    No.
    Anastasia answers. Arkant will find it slightly more difficult than he expects to pierce her skin and take his samples. Her blood is thick and slow, but he'll manage to get a syringe worth's out of her as well as the requisite piece of flesh. She seizes the business card from him and then returns to her meal, apparently done with talking to him.

    "I won't take advantage of your hospitality, young miss." Jaahlyn replies with a smile and a shake of her head.

    Behind her hood is a curly white-haired woman, though she doesn't seem to be particularly old. Instead, her hair seems to just have in the nexus not-too-unusual natural color of white that stand in contrast to the black fur of her hooves and her eyes. Her eyes are unusual in themselves as they are completely black with the exception of a line in the center which seem to be her pupils which are white.
    Another unusual feature is her has black horns which Fidelia could hint even behind her hood, yet what she hadn't seen is that their tips have been filled down a lot, greatly reducing their length.
    The rest of her features seem mundane however, deeply tanned olive skin and a slightly hooked aquiline nose.

    "And I mean no offense to it or you when I say that I don't trust the water in skyside. It's a city few actually want to live in. But enough about the city, you wish to learn, yes? So if I may, what exactly do you wish me to teach you? To undo death? To reverse decay? I do wish to help but I might need to know more about your situation first." She does not take a seat, or even move further into the apartment than she seem to deem necessary. Seemingly preferring to stay within two meters of the front door.

    "Let's leave this place then. I think we've both had enough of all this for a while." Ambrosia says with a final gesture at the slave market before she turns to leave.

    HALO would be their next destination.

The strange butler also has a pair of grayish blue cat ears and a similarly colored cat tail designating him as a catboy. His smile exudes a warm and friendly nature, which must help fend off the chill he surely feels in that outfit. Though admittedly he did not just fly here.

    "Good day ma'am. How may I help you today ma'am?" Butler asks Norael.

    Norael is about to speak for a moment, but she pauses when she looks at Butler. She takes a few glances, as if she wasn't sure, but eventually she just tries to scoop him up and hug him. "Oh my gosh you're wonderful! You're Butler, aren't you? I'd heard about you before but never got to see you around! This is where you're at? Can you take me to Tellysandra?"

    Medical Office

    Dr. Norael is waiting behind her desk, an angel glowing with pale blue wings and hair that all seems to wave slightly on its own without any breeze. If Blue recognizes it, he might realize that she was radioactive if the glow meant anything. Plus she had a Geiger Counter ticking softly behind her on a bookshelf. "Alright, I'm Dr. Norael and I'm here to interview you and check you over for medical issues. To get us started, I'll be casting a spell that'll let me read your vitals and check your body for any sorts of disease, magical or mundane." She gives a small flick of her hand, casting "Status" upon him. "Now can you state your full name and reason for wanting to join us?"

    The orcs yell in surprise when the goo-man flows through the hole he'd blasted in the door, rushing up to the door after him and working on kicking it down with their heavy boots. It shouldn't take too long, and now they know that bullets and tasers won't stop the mysterious figure, the first two into the room will rush him and try to wrestle him to the floor, kicking and biting as they go. They're bulky and strong, with heavy boots and, as uncivilised as it may seem, they deliberately sharpen their tusks. It helps intimidating unruly slaves and abolitionists, and also serves as a last-ditch weapon in a brawl.

    Medical Office:

    Blue, never the most perceptive of people in situations apart from business, remains entirely ignorant of the radiation. His response is brief and slightly muted, mumbled absentmindedly as he stares, his expression somewhat bewildered around the room. "Uhh, yeah, of course. Uhhh, Blue."

    "Money. I think I wrote it... somewhere, the lady took it."


    --

    Against all odds, Blue is relatively healthy, apart from being slightly overweight. Alcoholism, also, has taken a bit of a toll upon his innards.

    "Well, there are non-fleshy beings other than yourselves, aren't there? My origins aside, I'm not particularly fleshy either." The Prof remarks, rubbing his chin thoughtfully. "And while a regular would be preferable, we don't want anyone else in Skyside paying too much attention either. No, no, I think I know just where to find what we need." Affy rubs his hands together delightedly, no doubt already shifting things into position elsewhere.

    "As long as there's something in there, something nearby I can- yes, don't worry, I'll be careful. But I'm confident that, one way or another, I can get us eyes on the inside."

    Eep! Butler is mostly surprised at first because he doesn't recognize this person at all, but shortly relents into the hug, giving a warm one return. It is a soft and comfortable hug all around for everyone.

    "Uh, yes and yes and yes ma'am. To all of those questions ma'am. Would you happen to be Nora ma'am? It's a pleasure to meet you ma'am. I was told to expect you ma'am." Norael may have to put Butler back down to get there though. Unless she gets particularly creative and mildly unprofessional.

    "Oh, right, sorry. One second though."
    If allowed, Norael's going to take a selfie with Butler to save for the future, but only if he'll allow her to do so before she sets him down. "And yes, I'm Norael. Please, lead on. I just hardly ever get to meet a celebrity and I got carried far too carried away. I promise I'll reign myself in." She'll follow him on in, behaving herself from that point on.

    KABAL Medical Office

    The office in general is pretty typical doctor stuff. A panel for x-rays, a shelf of specimen jars, a bookshelf full of neatly organized medical and magical journals that actually look like they've been read...

    Mostly it is the doctor herself that stands out. Hopefully he's not too put off by her lack of mouth however. There's only smooth skin where one should be, although her facial structure implies that there should be one there. She quirks her brow at the fact that his full name is Blue, but she types it down on her laptop along with a few other notes. "What sort of position were you looking for, Mr...Blue." She furrows her brows a bit, honestly not quite sure how to take it that it seemed to be his name(unless he was lying of course, in which case she'd likely be able to tell from his vitals). "And are you aware that your liver is quite damaged from alcohol? Not that I'm one to judge a drinking habit of course. I used to have quite a bad one myself. If nothing else, my magics should help ease any negative effects and help your liver regenerate."

    "Excellent, I will make my own preparations then. I will keep an eye on their studio and wait for your signal. Once you got something, just contact me over this channel. It will be secure. Then we'll figure the last bit out together." And with a click of a projected button Shazhan has send the information of the channel to Affy as well. "One final question though, to sate my curiosity, when we have this energy, what will you be using it for? It seems like you can already do most things on your own power."

    Stromulus Manor

    Tellysandra will be on the sundeck of the manor doing what else? Sunbathing.
    It's a futile effort though, no matter how many hours in the sun, the only thing the warlock gets can be sunburns. Her skin seems incapable of getting tanned, not for the lack of trying though.

    Pushing the window next to her open she soon emerges outside. The next part would be easy for most people, but quite tricky for Jaahlyn due to her hooves.
    But perhaps her lower body belonged to a mountain goat as she is able to climb down that ladder without any major problems and will let go and drop from the ladder once she's not in danger of fall damage. Easing the fall with a roll as she apparently knows some parkour.

    The man can't reform quick enougth to stop the player from escaping, but as the orcs push down the door he has moved enougth to be not slammed by the door. The orcs might notice that the upper body is reformed fast so that he can hold the shotgun, which he points at them. If they don't hesitate he will shoot and try to hit the closest (he only got one shot left since he never reloaded). If they stay away , waiting for more to come the man will head for the next window.

    Should the orcs still attack they sure might have a strange feeling. It s much like tearing apart a stuff animal just gooy and slimy. If they bite parts of they will have another problem. the goo is hard to be spilled our or swallowed. it seems to life and will try to choke them by blocking them from inside.

    Fidelia has never been the most fascinating denizen of the Nexus in terms of looks, and even compared to Jaahlyn, this is no different. She is young, that much is clear by the faint smattering of freckles that mar the tanned skin of her face - but that youth is subdued by a faint series of mostly minute scars, and a certain hardness in her forest-green eyes that came with a need to grow up fast. Her earthy brown hair is overdue for a haircut, pulled back in a simple ponytail to cope with the length until it becomes too bothersome to ignore.

    "To undo death, yes." The squire confirms, noting the strange reluctance to enter but choosing not to question it. "My... charge is a ghoul, the classic type I think - sentient, looks like a fresh corpse, needs to eat human flesh to keep being sentient... oh, and, er, heals when eating human flesh, too." Fidelia wavers on calling Jenette her "charge"; to her, the term does not do their relationship justice. It is too cold and businesslike, and lacks a degree of care and affection that the squire feels belongs.

    Butler doesn't particularly mind. He hasn't had many pictures of him taken before, so his expression is a bit off, trying to smile appropriately for the camera. Trying too hard basically and not as natural as it could be. It's still a halfway decent picture though as he's not uncomfortable.

    "You're fine ma'am, I promise. Norael ma'am. My apologies ma'am," Butler says in regards to her name. He thought it was Nora. He must have misheard Tellysandra. "This way ma'am."

    Butler will lead Norael to the luxurious sundeck! The sun warms thing up pretty well there. Perfect for taking a nap. Or sunbathing if you want. "Excuse me ma'am," Butler says, walking out onto the deck towards Tellysandra. "Miss Norael is here to see you ma'am."
