    Uninspired, unfounded insults, searching for approval of others, and when the ground became shifty, gave up in search of an easier target. She was easy like a book...not a good one at that. "Indeed, it is sometimes better to be a doormat, if the alternatives are worse." Peladryia's cloak raised for a moment, indicating a shrug. "That's also where the trapdoors usually are." She added, out of the blue.

    Pel was a little surprised when Arthur approached, and she escorted him with her gaze all they way until he settled by her side. The cat raised its head as well.

    "mind if I pet 'em?"

    The girl looked at Arthur, then at the cat, then back at Arthur. She gave him a nod, and carefully picked up the cat off her lap and placed it in front of them. It didn't seem really happy about that. "I do not own him. It is ultimately up to him, whether or not he will let you." The cat didn't seem spooked, instead it just stretched and began licking its side vigorously. It jerked at the first contact of a new hand, but didn't oppose some more attention.

    I should probably try and find something interesting to put in here...

    Xerkin's smaller, more humanoid hands came together, the fingers entwining as his thumbs pressed against one-another.
    "They do. But it's okay if they are scared, as long as they are safe. The little ones need me, right? They need me to protect them." Xerkin's face had been towards the floor as he spoke, but he looked up at the Hollowed woman as he said the last lines, his voice hopeful, almost pleading.

    Arthur smiled as she set the cat in front of him. He gently brushed him across his back a few times before saying "Sweet cat, unlike the sly one over there." Arthur reached into his satchel and pulled out a small sack filled with treats. He pulled out two and first ate one before offering the other to that cat. After returning the small sack to his satchel he stood up, giving a small nod to Peladryia before walking off.

    Arthur turned his attention to the Vatran that had been quietly observing. He unclipped his sheath and removed his claymore before taking a seat near him, resting his sword across his lap. After a moment of silence between the two Arthur turned toward him

    "How are you handling the climate?"

    He asked genuinely, knowing the Vatrans are used to much, much warmer weather.

    “Yes Xerkin, the little ones need you. Though surely you mustn’t want them to fear you if it can be helped? Perhaps once you help them they will become less fearful, too.” Her tail offered the behemoth another comforting pat, and while she did not acknowledge the snide remarks made by the small human and the oaf, Tryssa heard, processed, and stored their remarks in her mind for later. Her eyes fell onto the small black cat for a brief moment, and Tryssa stifled away the feeling of hunger she had been enduring.

    This woman understood Xerkin. Despite having never talked to him before she got him unlike any in their race had before. He continued to twiddle his thumbs while lightly tapping his feet, feeling much more uplifted about this whole situation. He saw others looking at the feline, and felt he should acknowledge it as well.

    "The kitty is cute." his deep voice stated, slightly louder than he was previously.

    Ah, the classic "How's the weather?" question. A favorite of every person out there, commonly used as a feeble attempt to break the ice and/or open a conversation by both young and old. Of course, it was never used in Vetran land, unless it was a joke. After all, his homeland cycled through 4 types of weather: "slightly-cooler-than-usual", "hot", "very hot", and "I feel like I'm dying".

    Luke thought that the answer was pretty self-explanatory, but he decided to reply. "I'm sure that once I defrost my face, I'll be fine. I mean, I'm not dead, so at least that's something."

    He halfheartedly grinned at Arthur. "This is definitely not the type of climate that I would like to vacation in. But hey, it, uh... could be worse."

    Spoiler for WHO I SUPP:

    I will remember you, Iwata...

    "Glad to see you can look on the bright side of the situation. Unfortunately it doesn't get much better than this, as I'm sure you've surmised." Arthur turned his head away from the Vatran. "Let's just hope this doesn't take to long, eh?"

    Arthur leaned his head back and rested his eyes in an attempt to relax while he had the chance. He quickly got lost in thought, thinking of his past, his family, and his future.

    Xerkin appears to be kind, despite his looks. Peladryia is quiet but clever. The Vatran seems trustworthy enough. I suppose I should try getting along with the hallowed woman. She cant be all that bad if she was summoned here.. Arthur thought.

    Elent watched the party communicate with one another, although some have been throwing insults hidden underneath conversation he didn't seem to mind it. The more they get it out of their system, then better. The time ahead for them will be tough. After a few moments, three fades dressed a bit more casually, discolored coats over shirts and pants. They had brought a multitude of food in platters. Meat and eggs, vegetables, two teapots filled and pitchers of juice. Most notable was the smell of deer meat drenched in butter with steamed veggies on its side. Glasses were also carried, placed on the table for the party to consume to their liking. As the placement of the food was done, one of the fades approached Elent and whispered a few words before leaving through the door.

    Elent stepped forward and bowed his head slightly. "Eat, the travel here was long and tiring. The war room has finished its discussion. They will arrive shortly."

    Peladryia gave Arthur a curious look, when he put the treat in his mouth, to assure her of no ill will. It was unnecessary, but nice and respectful in its own way. She could appreciate such gesture. Felines have an acute sense for tainted water and food anyway. They rarely if ever touch it, and this one was picky in particular. Meanwhile, it snatched the tidbit after short examination and made quick work of it.

    By that point it had seem to gather quite an audience.

    Even the two Hollows stopped their artificially sweetened exchange. "The kitty is cute."

    "It is." Pel answered with a nod, staring at creature in question, which flicked its tail and looked around curiously. She knew that one is supposed to say something like 'thank you', but the cat's appearance or demeanor were none of her merit. "I like him...It's important to care about those smaller than us. Its what makes us humane." She avoided saying 'human' on purpose. She always thought that the expression translated poorly into common language.

    Before Pel could say anything else, the food arrived. Since she was sitting on the floor in front of one of the tables, a lot of plates passed over her head. She eventually got up, when the cat jumped up the table ready to plunder. Pel let it sniff for just a second, before putting it back on the ground and leaving it with another treat for distraction. Eyeing the now full table, the deer caught her attention in particular. She tilted her head slightly, and produced a small knife from underneath her poncho. The girl then cut away a tiny piece and put it in her mouth using said knife alone.

    "Not poisoned..." Peladryia exclaimed quietly, after chewing for a while. "...a little unseasoned, but not poisoned." After wiping the knife with a napkin it disappeared as fast as it appeared, and Pel seemingly lost all interest in the meat. Instead, she poured herself some tea, and holding the cup with both hands, moved away from the table.

    I should probably try and find something interesting to put in here...

    Tryssa made her way to the food and began to eat a little bit of everything offered, as if to compensate for missed meals during the trek and as a means to indulge before they inevitably set off once more. After having food on her stomach, she found herself able to keep her tongue in check, rather than pointing out and magnifying the flaws of her companions. Instead, she simply observed how they would interact with one another and their environment. Still, Tryssa found herself disappointed in more than half of this team that had been put together. Peladryia certainly had her uses for the Fades to have summoned her here, but Tryssa viewed her as more of a liability than an asset. She didn't speak as she filled her plate and returned to her seat. A grin did tease her lips, however. Tryssa found herself amused at a dark thought involving the group and a particular feline.
