S1E1-EdricQuinys

Edric Crestrun

As the group traveled towards the cave, the sun shining from above, several of them seemed to pair off to discuss what had just happened regarding the goblins and their unceremonious murder, and to discuss these strange new people they had found themselves in the company of. Edric naturally gravitated towards Quinys, and tried to get her attention "Hey. You alright?"

Quinys Forgedawn

"Fine." She crossed her arms and kept her eyes on the tree line. She wasn't happy, that much was obvious, and she had left the group before the killing had commenced.

Edric Crestrun

Sidling up next to her, he could sense her distaste. Suddenly with a wave of his hand, an image of the Dwarf doing a silly dance appeared alongside them out of view of the others, making a fool of himself. "'ey, listen, I didn't like how he did it but we had to kill 'em. Those green little fuckmidgets hurt Gundren, I can't abide that."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Whatever you say, I mean, you're the men of the group." She shrugged, trying to ignore the dwarf because god damn it it's not fair if he makes her laugh. She pulled a bit of biscuit from a bag and broke it in half, offering a bit to him as she chewed her own slowly.

Edric Crestrun

Taking the biscuit, he performed a bit of prestidigitation to make both halves fresh baked and buttery, steaming with deliciousness. "If it were up to me, I'd have just broken their legs. Plus ya lasses outnumber us two to one, I don't think that was the matter at hand."

Quinys Forgedawn

She tried not to be happy about this, but it tasted so good. "Men always have more power than women, look at the way the conversation went…you convinced the other man and he killed the two without waiting for a consensus, because the womenfolk don't count."

Edric Crestrun

"I can't help it if I'm smarter than most. I ain't got the power of persuasion, but I can make a man feel too dumb to do otherwise. Also, I didn't see you shrinkin' away from murdering when you were stabbin' them in the face. I ain't got the mettle for that kind of violence myself." He could tell she had some interesting opinions on the genders, and felt a little bit put on the spot. "Point bein', I didn't make anyone do anything."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Never said you did, just said you helped. And I protected us from hostile enemies, he murdered tied up prisoners." She finished her biscuit and licked her fingers, wiping them on her pants with a sigh.

Edric Crestrun

"Eh, fine, I did. I was angry. No one fucks with Gundren and gets to walk off merry. But I'd have just busted their little kneecaps." Finishing his own biscuit, he switched the image to the tiefling, who did a silly dance too "I get an inklin' that one doesn't like your profit motive."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Good thing I don't care about what they think." She shrugged, patting her purse and smiling. "I do my job, get paid, and have a few drinks along the way. There's no point in getting involved in the politics of it all, especially when your voice seems to be ignored, so I'll just take a heavier purse and move along. I like Gundren and all, but he's a client first and friend second." She glanced over at Edric and narrowed her eyes a bit, trying to figure out where he landed in the hierarchy of her likes/dislikes.

Edric Crestrun

He returned a swarthy grin, as he switched the image to a very drunk Gundren. "I'll admit, I've got my own motives for makin' sure he's alive and well. He's a great drinkin' partner, but…hell, I might as well tell ya." Pulling out a flask of rum, he took a long drink before capping it and putting it away again "I was out at sea when I got a premonition that he'd be the one to tell me about my dad. Put in my resignation the next day and I've been hanging around him since. I'll tell ya, I've got a good sense of these things, always have, and he's definitely the key to figuring out what happened to that piece of human garbage."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Are you sure he's human? You look a bit elvish to me." She teased, reaching for his flask and taking a drink herself. The liquid burned, but in the best of ways and she licked her lips." What do you think of our companions?"

Edric Crestrun

It was a warm rum, spiced and delicious. He gave her a look as she compared him to an elf. "Hey, don't even be joking about that. You know how I feel about those knife eared, hoity toity bastards. Yerself discluded of course, wood elves are good people, mostly cuz you actually consider yourselves people like the rest of us." Taking back his flask, he grinned. "Speakin' of, I don't know if I'm gonna be able to hold my tongue with those two elf nobles. Can't stand their like at all, had enough of em growing up."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Tell me how you really feel about us." She teased, bumping into him a bit with a small smile before digging a coin from her purse and offering it for what must have been somewhat expensive rum. "I bet one of them tries to lay with you before week's up."

Edric Crestrun

"Fer the rum? That was swill before I worked my magic on it. Would rot your guts to jelly if I hadn't spruced it up first." He grinned, the coin in his hand vanishing and appearing back in her purse with a flick of his wrist. He was a showoff when he had a bit of a fancy for a girl, even if he would never, ever admit such a thing. "Ya mean the redhead? She's got a way about her, but I ain't into that kind of dalliance."

Quinys Forgedawn

"A man with honor? Hard to believe that." She made a mental note to sneak a coin into his bag during her next watch, just to see if he noticed, and if so, how long it took. She looked over the group and crossed her arms over her, rather small, chest." What's who with redheads?"

Edric Crestrun

"Nothin' against 'em, but she's a sly one. I can tell she's charmed many a man and woman alike between the sheets. Wouldn't be surprised if she set her sights on yerself as well." He continued on, the illusion becoming that of the elf in question, acting flirtatiously. "As for myself…well, I ain't much of a ladies’ man. I don't give myself up to those base needs, well, needlessly."

Quinys Forgedawn

Quinys wrinkled her nose a bit, then rolled her eyes. "We'll see how long you hold out when those sisters are upon you."

Edric Crestrun

"The other one ain't the same, despite bein' twins. I get a sense she's about as different from her sister as she can manage, and I'm rarely wrong 'bout these things. Call it a portent." He grinned. "Got a few on you as well, but I ain't sure about sharin' them with the intended."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Is that so? I guess I'll just have to get you drunk and learn all your secrets…before stealing your treasures that is." She ran a hand through her hair and let it fall over her face a bit, dear god why was she blushing?!

Edric Crestrun

He laughed. "I've got plenty of secrets, I don't think you'd survive gettin' em all out of me. I'm a hell of a drunk, as our mutual friend can attest." Catbird, who had been hunting down mice on the way, swooped down to land onto her shoulder with impeccable lightness. "I can see he's taken a liking to you."

Quinys Forgedawn

"He's my friend, I sneak him snacks." She broke off a bite of jerky and offered a piece to her buddy, scratching his ear as he ate. "And he likes to hang out with me on watch sometimes, makes it more fun."

Edric Crestrun

Catbird eagerly nommed down the jerky, and purred at her scratching as he rubbed up against her neck "Yeah, y'know he talks to me, right? Telepathy, is what they'd call it. He's been my familiar for a few years now."

Quinys Forgedawn

"Does he say mean things about me?" She continues to scritch him with a small smile, almost content in this moment. She never imagined she'd have a friend in a human, let alone one with such a sweet pet.

Edric Crestrun

"Nah, he likes when you scratch that one spot behind his ear though. He's smarter than most people, actually." Catbird took off into the air, having spotted a wolf he would very much like to tease and going off to do so. "Don't you get too close, buddy, you already got clipped earlier!"
