- Gabriel - The Mech Lord - Shops -

"Approximate four days and three hours have passed since Gabriel's arrival in 'The Haven'" The advanced Ai of his suit spoke, answering Isadora's question. While Gabriel was more relieved that they didn't comment on the Ai flirting with them on his behalf, something he did not want to do at all, he was too shy to do so! After his embarrassment passed he would noticed Yltriss to be among them all, a woman he knew from his own world! So either he was having an overly long dying dream or this place truly was what it said it was. Both prospects equaly terrifying to someone such as himself.

"Oh right, you're all wondering why Gabriel isn't the one speaking!" Jade excitedly remarked, this was a common occurance when interacting with others, some found him weird for having his Ai speak for him. But he had a very good reason to do so.

"He's too shy to speak!" His Ai answered, prompting an awkard aside glance from Gabriel as Jade giggled in the background. "He gets very shy around women, and with all of you beautiful ladies in front of him he is practicaly frozen!" The Ai continued to tease its master, prompting Gabriel to fold his arms...and quietly accept his fate.

"I am joking, Gabriel's practicaly mute. His vocal cords scarred, he cannot speak without extreme pain." It was quick to correct itself and say the truth. WIth its usual monotone voice as Jade quietly nodded beside him.

Gabriel simply shrugged as he looked back at Isadora and the others.

"Gabriel asks if you all have just arrived." Gabriel sighed at the last part.

- Henry - The Spirit Wielder - Shops -

"A leash?! Henry please don't tell me you've actualy considered chaining Sylph!!!!" Sylph began to throw a small tantrum while in the air, causing Henry to sheepishly smile. "No Sylph, I won't leash you, don't listen to Undine." He told the small wind spirit with reassuring words. "yaaaay! Freeedoooom!" Sylph said as she flew around Iseult for a bit more, completely enamored by the dark elf.

Stopping just behind her, "I hear elves are awfuly ticklish!" Sylph exclaimed gleefuly, as she would not use her hands to tickle Iseult, but her wings, a much much powerful tickling weapon.

Henry then turned to Falloan as he noticed the mention of elemental lords. Something that he could relate to in his world through the Eight Great Maidens. "Interesting." He noted, "Though the reason why they show less power is because they are bound to me." Henry spoke thoughtfuly. Not dwelling much on that fact.

"Quite true, when we bind ourselves to a host our power matches them, as to not crush them." Undine spoke up as well, giving some more insight.

"Then again there could be more powerful spirits than us, there are other elemental spirits in other continents." Salamander clarified, prompting a nod from Undine.

But now was time for introductions, as such Henry gave them a small bow of his head as Faloan introduced herself. "The pleasure is mine, my name is Henry Hansees, but call me Henry, no need to be formal with me. The spirits sure aren't." He smiled.

"Hey!"

Henry folded his arms afterwards, "Dragon, huh?" He remarked with a neutral tone. It was clear he did not hold dragons in all that high regard, understandable given his back ground and the wars in his world.

"There are many dragons in my world, most of them bad, a lot of them with godly powers, lets just say I had a few run in with elders and ancient dragons." Henry finished, explaining his stance on the dragons of his world, but he wasn't one to judge a book by its cover, so he wouldn't be too hard on Faloan.

"How's your world?" He asked her, as to break the ice.

The Destined Undestined
- Pang / Yltriss, with the newcomers to Haven -

Pang felt overwhelmed by the current situation, but he felt aware that someone was closing in, even if cloaked with invisibility. He kept a lingering gaze in the direction of the sensation, capturing sight of the narrow bolts of lightning from Jade Sin. She had fooled him once, but he was ready this time.

Yltriss breathed out a laden sigh as she observed the goings-on, especially when Jade Sin was called back from scaring the tar out of somebody. That machine needed breaking. It was as if she were dealing with Maxis all over again, only this time it was purely mechanical, even if sentient. At the very least Gabriel was the one who called it off, earning a smile from her. Or was that the AI? She had to hate that he associated himself with sentient machines, especially considering all she wanted to do was thrust an earthen punch in any of the machine's directions, but with Gabriel being behind the AI she hesitated to attempt such a thing.

"My recommendation is to don't let the sylphid have its fun," Yltriss droned grumpily. "Swat it down if you are able. Those things can't easily disappear, but if it annoys you let it know, dark elf."

Pang was startled by his companion's reaction to the little fairy flitting about, but he had to admit that Sylph sometimes went to great lengths to annoy and to have fun at other people's expense. At the very least it was not with himself, having an easier time as of late avoiding her certainly spritely and sometimes disorderly feats.


- Berybrillo, with Sonya in the hallway -

Berry watched worriedly as the girl rose to her feet, having a difficult time keeping her hands in check. Being a medic and an observer was . . . challenging, to say the least, when you want to help but feel like the best option to help is by letting the injured person do what they intend to do.

"The multiverse has spices, herbs, and vitamins and minerals that are not ordinarily commonplace in any one world. A little bit of any of them, with enough study, can yield fantastic results. I found a few hangover cures this way, but after a while I found a few ways to calm a stomach after having it rebel against you due to the process. Chalk may be a good one, but I've a better concoction that I can put in a meal without changing the taste. Also? Sonya's a very pretty name."

She flashed a smile, feeling a little bit better about leaving Sonya to her own methodology, at least for perambulating.

"I can show you to the kitchen if you'd like something to drink or eat, or I can give a miniature tour. Walking helps ease things."


- Hogarth, in the faraway bleachers watching the arena fight and Lucia and Hektor from afar -

Hogarth had his eyes closed from within the bleachers of the arena, his face furrowed in concentration. Between the battle happening within the very heart of the room and the conversation on the other side, he could not hear much of what was happening beyond the roar of weapons, bone, and flames, but he smiled all the same as his eye-shaped camera drones picked up sight from three different angles, one of them being overhead of Lucia and Hektor, and the others overseeing the battle. Those two individuals seemed to have a good rapport, which was a fantastic thing, considering they only knew each other for a short while, in the long scheme of things.

His eyes quickly zipped off to new locations to follow the battle, gaining new angles and taking pictures that he would download later once they returned to his eye sockets. However, he did not attempt to communicate, only view. Why ruin someone else's fun when you can watch it and gain an appreciation of seeing people smile under such a trying time? He heard the tales of the deaths from other sources. It was scary, hearing that five more perished, changing the number of previously living people by 22% of the original 51 Haven members before five weeks ago. The coming and going of life was, to him, ghastly, and he needed this moment to look on and concentrate on other things which celebrated vitality.

Child of the Pale Mistress
- Iseult Mylis, Faloan Apateon - The Haven -

The more time both Iseult and Faloan spent in The Haven, the more interesting and weird it became. Some of the people living there were strange, but to Faloan that was not very surprising. There were many worlds out there, after all. Iseult on the other hand? She was very, very confused, but she thought that , maybe, with time, she would understand that strange place.

"Thank you for the advice," Iseult said to Pang, her face now hidden by her white hair to avoid anyone watching her blush, "Please, stop. I'm sure that you are excited to see one of my kind, but I don't like to be touched,"

Faloan rolled her eyes after watching the spirit's antics. The Spirit Lords of Istrora were completely different than these four, but she thought that it had to do with the difference in their worlds. It was interesting to learn that there were dragons in other worlds. She had witnessed multiple members of her kind use ancient arcane means to travel between planes. Maybe they traveled between universes as well. But more importantly, this human had survived a meeting with ancient dragons, perhaps more ancient than her, she couldn't really tell, and this human obviously wasn't a fan of dragons.

"My world is called Istrora. Our homeland is a massive continent that floats in the sky. We are from the land of Caligo to the North. At the edge of the Floating Continents we have the different oceans, and at the edge of those we have the Sea of Clouds," Faloan said to Henry, "Below the Sea of Clouds are the Underlands, it is where humans live. You could say that they have forgotten about us, magic kind. And we like to keep our presence a secret. "

The Sleepy Magician
Galla

Galla heard the footsteps above her o the shield. She moved to draw her knife putting her back against her sheild. As she moved so did her free hand. It moved in a circular, stirring motion. She then saw Kolm drop down. His mace making contact with her arm that held the knife. She whinced in pain. Fairly sure that he blow broke her shoulder. Her body was very fragile after all. However her concentration remained steady on her spell as it completed. As these events transpired the skull began to approach from above. Bone dust from the fallen skeletal beasts began to swirl around it. Its own flame spreading to the rest of its body, forming a cloak. It began to chatter loudly.


Sonya

Sonya remained at a distance unsure how to approach the situation at hand. Her instinct told her to be cautious around those she didn’t know. “Present the herbs. I will prepare them myself.” She says. Her eyes darted around as if she were in a battle zone.

Random Schemer
{The Harrowed - Jerod: The Haven; Cafeteria}
Jerod made a "no, not at all" gesture in Orion's direction as the scholar moved his notes. The past few months, even before coming to Haven, had been somewhat lacking in conversation. It would be good to talk to people again. More than that, the prospect of being in a place that offered continued contact with the same people was an almost forgotten joy from his past life. A joy he had sadly wasted. Orion's suggestion of a mission caused a slight look of disappointment on Jerod's face, but it was gone in an instant. No rest for the wicked.
"Certainly." Jerod answered, carefully getting to his feet. "I'll need to get the hang of this myself. This place has some rather direct ways of inspiring its population to diligence, I must say."
Taking a step back, Jerod gestured for Orion to lead the way.

–Kolm–
@HeartOfFerria

Something was happening with the skull overhead. The mage noticed the bone dust swirl around it, flames stretching over its form. This didn't seem to bode well, though he wasn't sure what Galla was planning. Kolm rotated, mace extended from his body as though an extension of his arm. He brought it in a sideways swing directly aiming toward Galla's torso. He hated harming her, even though they were practicing, but he could not afford to go easy on her. Not if he were to grow in skill, or do her any favors by allowing her an easy victory.

–Isadora–
@Scrapmaster , @Elrandir , @Thanny

"I see," Isadora said, emerald gaze sharp upon Jade the robot. She considered Gabriel's question as she answered with, "We have only just arrived ourselves. Yltriss here is giving is a tour."

It would seem that there are many newcomers, Isadora mused, considering those whom she had already met. The elf shifted her hair off of her shoulders, shooting another glance around the shop.

"It is nice to see such camaraderie among the Haven's patrons," Isadora commented idly, shifting back toward Yltriss. "It seems that you and Gabriel here have already become well acquainted, even though he has been here a mere three days. I hope that I am able to build a rapport with all of you just as quickly."

She felt it rude to interject into Faloan and Henry's conversations, so she remained standing silently among the women, hands clasped regally in front of her.

–Orion–
@rikunobodyxiii , @HeartOfFerria
The researcher watched as Jerod rose from his recently claimed seat, waiting expectantly before realizing that Jerod was meaning to embark on their first mission right then.

"Oh! you mean now?" he inquired, rising to his feet as well. "I suppose so, though I do hate the thought of my pulling you away from a decent meal. It can keep, if you wish, unless you are truly ready to depart now, in which case we can do so. We perhaps we should form a party."

Orion moved forward, purposefully making a lot of noise in his movements so that Jerod would be able to follow him with ease. "Say, Ceres, was it? Would you care to join us on our first mission? I'm not looking for anything too expansive at this point; just something to test the waters with and get a feel for how the Haven operates."

The Destined Undestined
- Pang and Yltriss, with the main body of the group (Isadora, Faloan, Iseult, Gabriel, and maybe a few more) in the shops of the Haven -
@Mystics Apprentice @Elrandir @Scrapmaster

Pang watched with a mixture of great amusement and worry about the situation with Iseult, the poor girl being toyed with by Sylph via the most horrendous of acts: tickles. She seemed troubled, however, by the mischievous sylphid bound to Henry, and as such he attempted to scoop her up within his fingers if he could, fingers outstretched to ensnare her while leaving enough to look around and breathe.

"Don't mind the poor thing. She's new and does not know boundaries," he stated, chuckling lightly.

Yltriss seemed interested in this world of Istrora, listening with rapt attention until Isadora seemed intent to talk with her. Refocusing her attention, she smiled without mirth, showcasing her finely tuned and well-spaced teeth.

"I am afraid that you are mistaken. While you are correct in that we of the Haven are prone to camaraderie and can hold good rapport, Gabe and I know of each other, or maybe knew of each other. Freak incidents, potentially related to each other, have linked us to this world between worlds, though I know not whether he is from my time or not, or universe for that matter. From the way he looks at me, he seems . . . younger, more aloof. Given time, this might change, but now I can only see differences, not similarities, to the Gabe I knew for a long, lengthy spell. Perhaps this is not the one I fought alongside with.

"But I am running my mouth. Come, we have more to introduce you to, or if meeting and touring does not sound good we can go out on a stroll in another universe or go eat something. Which would you all choose?"

- Berybrillo, with Sonya -

@HeartOfFerria @Mystics Apprentice @rikunobodyxiii

Berry huffed a sigh, her blue locks slipping down in front of her eyes.

"Very well. It seems that you're not the trusting sort, but that is understandable. You only just arrived, after all, but this tincture I have been fortunate to find needs to be done a certain way to be most useful. If you would like, I could give you a recipe to follow. I have a few books of them in my kitchen I could loan, along with my cooking supplies. Just don't dent any of my pans or there will be issues, got it? Now come."

Waving the girl on, she traced her way back to the kitchen, passing by Orion, Ceres, and Jerod with a timid "hi" and a gesticulation. She did not know Ceres very well, though some of the others she knew prescious little about, Jerod especially, as this was probably the first time she had even met him. As for Orion, he seemed familiar. Did she feed him at least once? Maybe so. Regardless, she did not tarry long in the cafeteria, and slipped her hand along the bookshelf within the kitchen, searching for the correct book. Selecting what chiefly looked like a tome of meats and stews, she unpinned one recipe, all the herbs she could find that were the correct ones, and handed the lump of it to Sonya.

"There you go," was all she uttered before slipping off to work on something of her own, a fruit tea blend to relax her mind. What a morning.

- Henry - The Spirit wielder - The Haven Shops -

"I see..." Henry listened to Faloan's explanation of her world with curiosity, the fact that multiple worlds and universes existed and THe Haven could gather individuals from all of them was impressive in it and of itself, it alwasy fascinated him to know of other people's worlds.

What piqued his interest was the fact that humans and her kind lived separately. "Forgotten? you mean the humans and your kind lived in contact with one another?" He asked her, now curious about the topic. "What made the two worlds cut contact?" He asked curiously.
"Probably an action on part of the humans." Undine chimmed in with her input, always wise, she held humans in an uneasy viewpoint, she used to hate them before Henry came along.

"I wouldn't be surprised." He commented. Before smiling, "As for my world, Its much more simple than yours, it is divided in three continents, Heide, the main continent to the west and south of the world, Astora to the north and the ruined land of the old demon kind of yore, The Forgotten lands of Elithius. I come from Astora, there humans and monsters lived in harmony, somewhat anyway. My village had humans, elves, lizardmen and other species of humanoids." He explained where he came from to Faloan, hoping to at least give her some info of his world, since she gave of hers.

"You're the third dragon i've ever met that hasn't tried to kill or eat me, and the only one who uses a humanoid form." He commented.


As for Isadora, Salamander had noticed the girl was mostly left by her own in the conversations happening, to which Salamander quickly floated towards her, leaving a trail of magic energy in her wake as she approached the woman.
"I see you want to join in on their conversation?" Salamander asked her, glancing back at Henry and Faloan's conversation. "As for rapport, it's certainly possible, there are some really bright figures in here." Salamander commented, pointing a finger at Sylph. Now imprisioned within Pang's hands...or paws? whichever!. "Just steer clear of Sylph".


"Nooooooooooooooooo!" Sylph shouted in a high pitched tone as she was scooped by Pang and now held prisoner.

- Gabriel Stross - Haven Shops -

"Well that was harsh" Gabriel's Ai spoke outloud at Yltriss comments of Gabriel and the Gabriel in her world, it seemed the Gabriel she knew was different in many ways, the one currently in the haven felt almost insulted, if he actualy cared much for other's opinions of him, he was shy as hell, but he had a thick skin for such things. Giving a small shrug at the notion of an older him knowing Yltriss more closely, even so far as fighting alongside her.

"And who was this Gabriel you know of? how was he?" Jade asked Yltriss, walking around her and checking the woman out for a bit before returning to Gabriel's side. "You seem to hold him in somewhat of a high regard!." She commented, a bit flustered that she had the gall to speak in such a way about the one currently by her side that way.

Gabriel, however had folded his arms. "Why don't we check the bounty board for a mission or something to do? we can chat and trade stories from our worlds there....is what Gabriel wants to say." The Ai of his suit spoke up, giving everyone a small suggestion as to what to do. After the conversation between all parties had quieted down a bit of course.

Well, the spirit had finally stopped, which was good, but she sounded so desperate now that Pang held her prisoner. Iseult took a deep breath and finally looked at Pang.

"It's alright, you can let her go. I am sure she learned her leason," Iseult said, ehr cheeks returning to normal, "Isn't that right, little spirit?"

Henry seemed interested in learning more about Istrora, and Faloan was happy to oblige, for now. It was the least she could do.

"We did, once. Or many times, depending of when you look at the history of our world. It's a cycle when you think about it. We find each other, we learn from each other, we establish good relationships, then comes war and we split once more. The Fate Weaver works in mysterious ways," Faloan said as she touched her lips with her finger, "And the Spirit is correct. The last time this happened was because humans used the knowledge granted by the Fey, beings who possess the gift of magic, to craft powerful arcane weapons that could destroy a Fey in a single strike. Feyslayers they called them. And so, the King of the land of Arcana conjured a magic wall that would separate both the Floating Lands and the Underlands."

Faloan decided that that was enough information about the events that happened thousands of years before. The more recent events would stay with her, for now. It was interesting to learn that even in other worlds there existed different types of Fey, or however they were called in their respective universes. Knowledge was something the Dragoness loved to obtain. Knowledge was power, after all. Others of her kind preferred a hoard of gold and magical trinkets, she preferred knowledge, she could take it anywhere she went, and she didn't had time to waste in keeping a hoard safe inside a lair. Well, there was one thing she had to keep safe in the dungeons of the Divine City of Water, but she had someone taking care of that.

"Interesting. I like to be respectful of others. Besides, there aren't many who try to test the might of a dragon in Istrora. Most fey either respect dragonkind or they fear their power," She said as she looked at herself after Henry mentioned a humanoid form, "oh, this? it saves space. If anything, It's more for convenience. You cannot have a dragon walking in the middle of the streets, that would be inconvenient for everyone."

At this point Yltriss asked everyone present, or, at least the new arrivals, what they wished to do. Continue with the tour, meeting the other inhabitants of the Haven, go to other universes, or eat something.

"I think a little trip to loosen the muscles should be fine," Faloan said as she turned to Iseult, "What do you think, Ainu?"

Iseult had the look of a deer blinded by a bright source of light when she turned to look at Faloan. What should she do? Everything was new and confusing and mysterious, she had no idea what had to be done. And so she agreed with what the others had said.

"A trip, yeah. That could be good," she quickly answered, just before her stomach growled, ". . . or maybe we can eat something before we go?"

The Paladin smile at Berybrillo as she passed before turning her attention to Orion. “The more the merrier as they say. I certainly would be happy to join you.” Despite her happy tone, her eyes looked a little distant.

Sonya
The girl in black took hold of the recipe and got to work immediately. She figured it would be best to bend just a little but she wasnt sure why. What was it that forced her head to be filled with so many clouds. Nothing was clear... at all.


Galla
The Necromancer was steadfast in her approach. Rather than trying to dodge the blow she seemed to be moving against her usual flow and moved towards it, taking the strike directly. She remained vigilant even after the serious blow and made an attempt to grab hold of Kolm’s mace arm. If successful she would grab on tight and do her best not to let go as the now full flaming skeletal terror glided overheard. An incantation come from its hollow skull. The ground gently trembled beneath the two of them.

Kolm
@HeartOfFerria

The mage froze, paralyzed, as he witnessed Galla accept the blow that he struck upon her mercilessly. In doing so his guard was down, allowing the necromancer to grab ahold of his right arm. His aqua eyes met hers, many expressions apparent within them, before realizing that she was up to something. Kolm fought to maintain his balance as the ground shook underneath them, finally fighting Galla's grip to get away.

"What are you scheming?" he demanded, struggling in her grip. With his free hand, he would attempt to slam his palm again her torso. If successful, ice would spread from his touch, and she would feel a seeping cold course through her as ice would spread along her body.

Isadora
@Thanny , @Scrapmaster , @Elrandir

This explanation proffered by Yltriss on her and Gabriel's relationship only further confused the raven-haired elf. "Oh," she said, a frown furrowing her brow. She did not question it, because she understood what Yltriss was saying, and yet . . . it did not make sense. They arrived from different points in time? What timeline, then, was the true timeline, and if she traversed the worlds–chiefly her world–would she arrive back in her time, or perhaps another? The more that she learned about the Haven the more that she disliked it, but there was little that she could do other than to tolerate it for the time being. It was better than death, after all.

Right?

As she listened to Faloan weave her tale, she came to realize that the two, while from the same world, were from different points in time. Her world was still world-torn, and the humans living segregated from the fey? This was news to her ears. It felt that this breached some kind of law, knowing the future from those of the future without having witnessed any of it herself. Apart of her didn't wish to know the outcome for fear of what it might've entailed–especially for her children.

Thankfully, Salamander arrested her attention, drawing her away from her thoughts of negativity. A soft smile infiltrated the woman's slightly gaunt face. "You are kind, as is your spirit sister. However, one can learn much by merely listening rather than speaking, which I am coming to find from my position here."

When Yltriss inquired as to what they all would like to do, Isadora responded with: "Well, I am a bit . . . overwhelmed by all of this, though some fresh air may do me some good. Let us check out this 'job board' of which you all speak of. I do not know how much strength I have to offer, as I am still not at the top of my game from what I've endured over the past–wow, has it been only a few hours?–but I will do what I can."

Galla

She let out a pained cry as the sharp sting of ice began to branch out of the palm strike to her side. From around the two of them three skeletal warriors with giant shields on both arms crawled out of the earth they positioned themselves around Kolm and Galla as if locking down the zone around them. Above the two casters, the Skeletal Terror which was once just a skull produced a small ball of black flame. Then its mouth opened and with Galla’s voice it spoke. “Necrotic Flames heed my call burn and ravage the earth below! Leave nothing but ash and dust.”

The Destined Undestined
- Pang Inranel and Yltriss Hyulli, with Henry, Isadora, Faloan, and Iseult in the Haven's shop -

Pang nodded in response to Iseult's allowance for Sylph to go free. Frankly speaking, he was not sure if he could actually grip or encage the fairy, but maybe his fire-enchanted gloves had something to do with it. He uncapped Sylph by removing the hand above her and allowed her to flit freely.

Yltriss glared daggers in Gabriel's direction, though not necessarily at Gabriel. She made it a habit to look above his left shoulder in order to talk to the AI within his suit, as if not to insult the man behind the machine, but it was very difficult to talk to a wall or a bit of sky sometimes as opposed to an actual person.

"I do not mean to sound harsh towards anyone," she uttered, her gravelly voice hesitant. "It's just . . . three years changes a lot when you are used to something. Imagine knowing someone, perhaps intimately, and finding out that you are talking to a younger version of him that you may never know again, or may not even be him. That is challenging. In my long life, nothing could have prepared me for this. But to answer your question, he was . . . nice. Sweet, I guess one could say. He made many constructs that you may consider your equals, or maybe brothers and sisters, but that was when he was under the effects of Tanzynite like I was, and am no longer. You, however, Gabe, are different. Your power is a part of you, it seems, and not artificial. It is what I consider one of your greatest differences."

A wan smile revealed itself from her as her green eyes flashed toward Gabe, then looked away a few seconds later. It was so easy to consider this as the same Gabriel, but it wasn't. If she ever were to return to the location she came from, she had to remain faithful to the one she cared for, not his lookalike from another point in space time.

"But I digress. Let us get you some food before we head off to adventure. This completes the tour for now, except a few final words: if you need a bio break, there is a restroom in every major room, including your bedrooms, the locations where you first arrived. I do hope you remember the numbers of the rooms you came from, elsewise we sort it out by vote or by rapport if roommates are needed.

"The Gate is that way"--she showed the hall with a sign saying Gate--"and the cafeteria is where I will lead you. Oh, also, this is the main shop. Some of our prices may be a bit large, but we give you a set amount of 2000 coins upon arriving. You may spend it however you would like, but some weapons are available in the room adjoining this one and the Gate. It is all stored in a plastic debit card, quite literally. If you shop, you can see the amount on the card, and the money spills out of the card and onto the table. Pretty neat stuff. The engineers and magicians know their stuff. Once you are fed, or if you would prefer waiting, the job board is here in the shops. That central kiosk holds many a job, too many in my opinion, but the bright side is that we will never run out of things to do.

"Now, come with me. The best way to get to the cafeteria is through the arena, and on the way you will see some of our best and brightest, Kolm and Galla. They are in a fight to the death at the moment. I think you will find it quite exciting. Do not worry. In the arena, life is recoverable even in death."

"We have many safeguards," said Pang, hoping to ease people's conscience regarding the consequences of losing an arena match in the worst way possible: through death. "When people fall in battle, a light brings them to fully restored condition. Call it our emergency phoenix feather, in a way. This does not work outside of the Haven, however, so mind yourself."

- Berybrillo, with Sonya in the kitchen before approaching Orion, Ceres, and Jerod -

Berybrillo looked over from her progress for the fruit tea, impressed that Sonya was able to find things and craft things a little beyond the recipe. She had the nature of a good cook when it came to experimentation, it seems, which made Berry smile. Perhaps Sonya was not as iffy as she feared after all, if judging from first impressions. She kept close just in case Sonya ever required help, but she stepped out into the cafeteria to give the folks there a proper greeting.

"Hey, Ceres. How is the food treating you? Do you mind introducing me to your friends? I feel that I recognise them, but I don't recall."

She scratched the upper part of her neck awkwardly. She really was unsure if she remembered the others.
