REPORT 027.5 :: WALL // ACTION

[Someone in full armor is at the village, going through the crowds with an ease she remains grateful for. Even though this situation is fortunately less hectic than the one with Kin'Corras, it still puzzles her to see as many.]

What is going on?

[But, it is still an opportunity. Standing taller than a lot of people, she tries seeking for anything that could be familiar -- old friends, faces, whatever.]

[That happens to be a question the armored woman staring up at the giant metal bulk of Daisy would like to know the answer to herself.

She's never seen anything like this, and this doesn't look like Lithmore City. At all. The village could be a sleepy one like Lothos, perhaps.

The thing in front of her could be an abomination. She's never seen armor like that, not even among the Daravi. Instinctively, she reaches for her sword.]


Who goes there? [She tries to make her voice ring with the command of a titled Knight, but this is difficult when facing something disproportionately large... in a place she's starting to think can only mean magic. The skin on the back of her neck prickles, another sign.]

[None of that means anything to Lithna, except for the vague recognition of an officer. Another knight?

She, like Daisy, stays alert but waiting. She identifies herself first.]


Dame Lithna Shirens, of the Knights Lithmorran.

I was in the city a moment ago.

[And this officer is the only person she's seen since then. Lithna's eyes narrow in suspicion. They say the first person you encounter after witnessing heinous magic may well be the perpetrator returning to the scene.]

[That's not even possible. The Lord of the Springs created their world, one world. Daisy is already close to heresy, Lithna notes.

And if somehow, this is an illusion - or even true - then there is only one source. Her eyes narrow.]


Magic.

[She says the word like a curse.]

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-01 05:04 am (UTC)(link)
[Lithna considers this: A strangely armored woman. A place where magic is at work, openly, and - evidently - permitted. (The knight would like to be able to believe, at least, that this armored woman would never tolerate a breach of the law of her land.)

This leads her to only one reasonable conclusion.]


The Daravi lands. [She had somehow ended up on the very wrong side of the borders, with... Wait. With a Daravi knight who spoke the king's tongue?]

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-01 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
[No, she has some questions first, Female Daravi Knight.]

How is it that you speak the King's tongue?
swordandchalice: (armor ♘ what's this?)

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-01 07:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Wings-? She sees them then, as she takes a closer look at the giant in front of her.

How can that be?

She has heard, in that 'vague rumor because no one would ever confess to having firsthand knowledge of this except on the rack, but it sounds plausible' way, of spells that give speech to mages.]


Some talisman. [The wings must be some spelled object, somehow.]

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-02 11:06 am (UTC)(link)
I would never! [These words are all but spat as Lithna tosses her head with a quick, fiery pride.]

I would never allow myself to be so tainted.
swordandchalice: (armor ♘ can it be so?)

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-03 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
[This, in a much cruder way, she does understand.]

You are saying this is surgery. Like sewing a wound. [But how can they do this with an entire body part?]
swordandchalice: (armor ♘ can it be so?)

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-03 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
[It probably would have been better to let her believe her non-magical explanation. Her eyes narrow, this time at Daisy.]

And you accept this? It does not trouble you that men sprout wings?
swordandchalice: (armor ♘ can it be so?)

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-03 06:05 am (UTC)(link)
There are changes which must be made.

[There are shortages sometimes, in a city like Lithmore. There is a changing political climate. There are new guild leaders, new guild personnel. New officers transferred to the city as promotion.

Unfortunately, this ranks as none of those.]


And there are those which cannot be tolerated.
swordandchalice: (armor ♘ appraising)

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-03 06:30 am (UTC)(link)
[She doesn't want to 'cope', or 'be ready for those changes'. Not when they involve something this foul, this evil.]

There is no accepting of this magic. It must be rooted out. [On the other hand, it gives her a wonderful motivation for any plots against the Malnosso.]

[That crosses a very clear and definite line in Lithna's world, and thus in Lithna.

She draws her sword.]

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-04 06:11 am (UTC)(link)
[This, Lithna takes as an insult to her own abilities.]

I know how to use it.

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-05 07:17 am (UTC)(link)
I will not disarm myself. [Not in front of this...

mage-lover.]

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-06 06:17 am (UTC)(link)
[The sword does not lower, not even an inch. But Lithna considers, as much as she dislikes it, the practicalities:

She cannot kill this woman right here. She cannot even find an Inquisitor to see to the body if she did. And she has the certain feeling that there is no Cathedral in the square, not even a village church of the Order.]


I will harm no one good and true.

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-10 08:00 am (UTC)(link)
I cannot say the same for those who cleave to wrong-doing. [Those, she has no mercy upon.]

[personal profile] swordandchalice 2013-02-12 05:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Instead of handing it over, Lithna keeps her grip firm. It's her weapon and Daisy is not precisely non-threatening.]

No knight would do so.
