Location: Lockeport ~ Town / Ensemble ~ Threads


Onyx, Lesi and Leon would head out and off the ship. They would hail a rickshaw and make their way all the way up to upperlocke. This area though it hadn't been destroyed was revamped upon and added onto. It had been made into two separate sections. One was more of the residential area. It was still worth going to check out as a new high school had been built and there was also the new vineyard. It was in the form of a business out of a house very similar to the other businesses here, this one was set on a wonder estate with fields rows and rows of vineyards. The trees were lush and the smell its self was sweet without being sickeningly sweet. They grew and bottled their own wine here for retail. Upon walking into the shop there were gorgeous display cases of all the variant types of wine they made. There was red and white, oak matured, fruit blends, ice wine, all wines under the sun. Each came in a deep green or brown classic glass bottle of variant sizes and prices. Onyx loved the home made labels and hand painted pictures on them! This was very perfect for her and her own business. Now wine wasn't usually the sort of thing you could find in a rough tavern say ones down in Port. Maybe at the Golden Flute located in upper Locke so...to have wine and a wide selection at that aboard her ship...was a plus.

Onyx turned to Leon and Lesi holding up her index finger for them to hold. She would take herself on up to the counter and though no words could be overheard the conversation was still animated. Onyx had introduced herself to the owners and had explained that she owned a tavern down in Port. She told them that she prided herself in being the only tavern in port with the widest selection of wines and that it would be nice to be able to showcase some local wines. She offered to set up a meeting to discuss this to which the owners were very surprised to hear. They made a date to meet up there at the winery. Onyx would take a business card and select a few bottles of wine to try. They gave her one bottle free and the other bottles on discount. All in all it was off to a very pleasant night! Rejoining with the others they would make their way out of Northern Upper Locke and into the heart of upper Locke. The group would slowly make their way down.
Metal stood over top the male looking down at him, he didn't move towards him nor did he say anything to the man, though the man was covered in blood from going through the stain glass window, he even still had shards of colored glass in his arms and head. "Oi, that smarts somethin real." He stumbled himself to get up, brushing some of the shards off his forearms before holding his fist up moving them back and forth as he began to walk towards Metal. Now as he stood there he raised his brow looking at the man as he came towards him. The man threw another punch towards his face and Metal just jerked his head to the side before stepping forward and laying his fist right into the man's stomach. The man gripped his stomach and groaned as he fell down against his shoulder. Metal wasn't a human so of course his punches were stronger, it just all depended on how strong he wanted them to be. It seemed he wasn't doing good at holding back. "You know..." Metal paused putting his foot on the man's back as it arched from the man being in pain. Metal just leaned forward looking down as he leaned his right forearm on his own knee. "I don't like jokes." Stepping back from the man Metal stared at the male as he continued to groan and hold to his stomach. Running forward for a moment Metal reared his right foot back as he planted his left foot down hard. It was then Metal's right foot came up and into the rib's of the bigger male, causing his to jump a bit off his hands and knees and onto his back groaning again. "Ahh, no more laddy no more."

Raziel Location: Asper ~ Bar


                                          "Sock..uh huh...you've been eating clothes again!" he poked his human belly.
                                          He was about to respond regarding shiara not being a doctor but she did it for him. He looked to Migoto and smiled at him ... though...he couldn't see it. He had started to laugh when Shiara flinched to the flicker of Migoto's tongue. That was quite amusing but when he yawned in her face...it was grand. He started laughing and laughing so hard until he was nearly doubled over on the ground just laughing in hysterics at the look on her face. Poor migoto would have no idea what-so-ever what he had done and...he wasn't planning on telling him either. Raziel thought it was the funniest thing when it happened. I mean the Naga was blind. He didn't know. Ignorance is bliss.

User ImageWell it wasn't his fault he tended to eat random things in his sleep. How was he supposed to stop himself? He frowned slightly, completely unphased by the laughter, and shrieks. or whatever noises appeared around himself. Migoto's tongue flickered out a few more times, as his coils began to slowly form a circle around himself, keeping it mostly behind himself so he hadn't tripped or trapped any of the people's feet. He hissed lowly, nothing threatening, but he was kinda annoyed that it seemed like Raziel had been laughing at him. Migoto's hands clenched up, and flexed out to hold his annoyance inside his thoughts, wondering back to--...wait a minute where did the other figure go? His eye's uickly scanned over, till e flipped his head around along with his back to see if she had escaped behind him, but he overshot, and slowly scanned backwards to Shiara, and flickered his tongue out at her face. "There you went....don't do that." He warned her mostly because he didn't want to accidently hurt her.

"And you, ssstop laughing." He frowned at Raziel, and let out a audible exhale threw his nose. His long scarlet tail started to constrict itself on it's bed as he seemed slightly annoyed. He was here for one...or maybe three things. To eat, to stay warm, and to be a guardian to this ship, but the whole seriousness of that subject has been long since thrown out the door, as he can't even stop Linia from chewing on him. His frown turned into a soft sad notion, and his normally constantly open eyes blinked a few times, and he shooked his head left to right slightly as well. Might as well be Onyx's family pet...thou still he did love to be pampered...The Naga began to daze into a daydream of thoughts.

Shiara continued to glare at Raziel as he doubled over incapacitated with mirth at their expense. Okay so it was a pretty pathetic glare. The sound of his laughter was so merry that it felt infectious, and the corner of her mouth was trying to quirk up into a smile against orders. "Oi! I second that stop laughing you hooligan." Shiara grabbed a crumpled paper towel off the table of the table that had been left behind after some's snack. She lobbed it at the doctor but it didn't have enough density to go the distance and fell pointlessly to the floor a few feet in front of him. To Migoto she asked, "Don't do what?" She didn't understand that he was objecting to her unexpected movement.

Making their way through the different sections they would stop at the various stores. They would check out the new bits and bobs which was a dangerous store because they had everything in there. Jenica had requested a set of kitchen knives, the ones they had were getting dull. Onyx also bought a fly swatter. They would move onto the upper caberette but it was too fancy for swim trunks. Onyx wanted to steer clear of the library and shop other wise you'd lose onyx forever! Same with the jewelers. The rest was food and the theater and so they'd all attack the vendors. The pop corn stand and the first early batch of candy apples! Onyx loved the summer for all the goodies that time of year brought out. There was the tea hut to which you know onyx bought stuff there too. The sun glass hut, onyx bought her and Heiden a pair and the pretty asian fan stand! Yup...she bought something there. They moved onto Main.

It would be in strings and thimble that they would find the perfect pair of swim trunks for Leon. Lesi and Onyx had a lot of fun making the poor alien try on and model off all kinds of trunks. When they had decided on a pair or two Oni bought them for him. Her treat. Onyx had been amazed at the transformation and how much money they put into getting more landscaping done and new materials for the town as well. You just know they had to stop in at Beanie Roast...but...it wasn't run by any of the same people. They had all died. This was the shop that had been run by the lady with the slightly disabled little girl, Izabelle. The one that stole Heidens first kiss. Literally. They would enjoy some coffee and baked goods before heading back out and onwards. Book store she beelined passed. But Chalice park...was nothing shy of gorgeous. She could foresee many memories being made here! She daydreamed in passing of it. Now they were entering Port once again.

Port had changed significantly. Though they did well to keep the original layout the same it had been reshaped a bit and added onto. As they rounded back around towards the Asper they were all blocked by the commotion going on on the street. Metal...he had been involved in some a** kicking brawl. Onyx's mouth fell open. She wasn't too sure what to do exactly. Arms full of stuff she was faced with a tough decision. To say something and risk the association that could lead them to the Asper...or...walk on by and turn a blind eye. Oh...Metal...she wanted to hurt him so badly. However...she had to wonder what started this. Who started this. Deciding that the safety of her ship was more important than this singular man...she pretended to not know Metal and skirted around the commotion and continue on. It was incredibly hard to do. But she did it.

                                          "Okay okay, I am sorry. Sorry Migoto...it's just you didn't see what i saw. You scared Shiara half to death by yawning in her face. You see...Shiara like she said, is my patient. She has never seen a naga before or many of the other types of...people on board this ship. So...this is all new to her." he said trying his best to clearly explain to the naga the situation. He then turned to Shiara.
                                          'Sudden movements equals bad. Migoto doesn't want to exactly be responsible to hurting anyone now.' she told her.
                                          Looking back to Migoto he reached out (slowly) and touched his arm 'Easy there Naga...your clenching your fists! You alright?' he didn't think to try and read the Nagas mind.

Standing over the man again Metal just looked down at the man, and then he noticed a lot of people starting to gather, pouring out of the bar and some even going out the window like Metal had. The other male was still rolling trying to get to his feet, though he felt his stomach cramping from the kick in the ribs and the punch from Metal. Looking at the man while he laid on the ground his eye's turned and saw her, she was walking holding multiple bags in her hands. Her eye's seemed wide as if she was going to drop everything and run over and choke him. Now turning his attention back towards the man he had got up to his feet, though he was hunched over and groaning again he was still up.

Metal slowly walked up to the man, his hands balled into fist as he did so, his long white hair flowing against his body as he made his way towards him. Metal's eye's faintly glowed as he approached the man. "C'mon now eh, it was a joke a joke." The man pleaded. Metal grabbed her hair and pulled his head back, the man's face was covered in blood from the glass from earlier, he just stared looking at the man as he stared at Metal. His right hand came back as he watched the man's face squish together getting ready for the blow. Looking at him Metal just sighed and then tossed the man face down into the cobble stone street. "You're all pathetic..." He spoke placing his hands on his hips as he began to walk away. The crowd gathered as they looked on at the man. Metal's form soon disappeared into one of the alleyways, now he was looking for her. It didn't take long, she seemed to be the only one in the street since he'd caused such a commotion. Walking behind her he spoke up as he looked up towards the ship. "Well that was a surprise."

Former Prince of Azarth

Mood: Calm I Health: Normal I Magic Level Level: Normal




Lance was floating above the surface of the ocean, eyes closed and his arms crossed. He was deep in thought. The longer he had to wait for his sister, the more fustrated he got. But meditating help conciderably. With everyone mostly gone from the Asper, this time alone was relaxing.

He opened his eyes and reached down towards the water. Using a little of his power, he called up a rock from the bottom of the ocean. He looked it over careful and grinned. This would be a perfect stone for his next project. He put it in his pocket and then floated back onto the deck.

User ImageLetting his jaw go loose, and slightly outwards as he thought about more things with Onyx, and cleaning his scales...and cooked chicken...till he was suddenly snapped out of it by Raziel's touch to his arm, and jerked slightly widening his eyes open. He wasn't expecting that aether. "F--" He shook his head. "Fine...just wasss thinking." his eyes seemed to wonder all around the floor board, before he could bring them back up blindly to the two. "Now, what about my eyesss?" He still was in some apprehensiveness about the whole doctor bit, and how 'vision' is meant to be seen, but if it helped what harm could it do to 'see?' He un-wired his coils, and let them go free across the room so he could back up some bit, to give himself room between the two. "Much better..." He he said very quietly to himself now as he can see a much broader view of movement if any of them decided to do something speratic, he sat silently waiting for an answer while his eyes seemed to flicker, back and forth between the two.

                                          "It's okay..." now he looked to Shiara and bit his bottom lip. Migoto wanted to know more about this topic regarding his eye's. But how was he going to do this without further confusing and possibly scaring the poor naga? He looked back to Migoto.
                                          'Well...would you mind coming down to my office? The bar just isn't the right place to talk about this.' he asked Migoto firstly. He wouldn't try and funny business with him. Raziel wanted his trust.

Shiara got an 'Oh' look of comprehension on her face when Raziel explained about sudden movements, and she felt a little stupid because it seemed sort of obvious after the fact. Wanting to not cause any more trouble for the poor jittery blind naga, Shiara took a seat at the table she'd been leaning on. She pulled the chair around so that she could face the two in the room and moving very slowly as she sat down. No sooner had she settled then Raziel was proposing to Migoto that he come down to the infirmary. Shiara was about to throw an irritated glance at the doctor when she realized he was looking over at her... He was biting his lip and she couldn't decipher his expression. Her sarcasm went out the window as she watched him interact with the naga, wondering what... if anything... was going on in that ever busy head of his. Shiara waited quietly, if Raziel and Migoto went down to the infirmary again... she would follow. She was too curious not to.

They made their way around town, looking at various shops. With Onyx leading the way, it was easy to figure out the new layout of Lockeport, and Lesi committed all the winding streets to memory. And of course, once they'd visited some of the shops, she had snuck a few small things down into her boots, unable to keep her fingers from twitching. She never got caught- she was much too experienced for that, now.

It had been absolutely hilarious having Leon try different swimtrunks on, which she and Onyx made him model. The taller woman ended up buying them once he picked out a pair, and then they were off, but not before they ran into a crowd. A familiar person stood in the middle, apparently having gotten into a brawl with someone else. Lesi couldn't remember the man's name, but she remembered him well. "Aren't you gonna do something?" She whispered loudly to Onyx when they passed him, ignoring him. He ended up following them, though, leaving the fight. "The ******** happened?" Lesi asked, glancing over her shoulder at him.

Name: Leontias Métaliene

The mere size of the town was enough to remind him somewhat of home. He’d been around once before the town was repaired. IT was in such horrible shape, it even had him wonder what happened to the place. Not exactly being a native of this planet, he had no idea what caused the destruction of the town. Even if he did know, he certainly wouldn’t believe it, he’d only dealt with one inter dimensional demon, and he wasn’t about to be privy to hear about another incident involving one.

He was honestly surprised that Onyx had brought him the trucks. He had the money, there was no reason for her to buy him anything. He could live without them teasing him however. It got annoying after a while that they attempted to put him in what they called a ‘Speedo?’ He found the pair of swimwear, heavily uncomfortable. They chaffed his rear, and bunched up his lower area. He was certainly glad that he was able to choose his own trunks.

In the end he brought himself a pair of Black trunks, with red trims, Simple, effective and comfortable. Certainly not what they planned for him to get, and thank god for that. He would not run around with what they wanted him to wear

He would not hesitate to say that he had a great time, For once on this god forsaken planet he actually felt, welcome. Not that anybody hasn’t tried to make him feel welcome today was just the first time it worked.

He didn’t even feel tired when they were set to make their way back to the ship. He still felt he could run about the town and yell joyfully about his day. He wore a big cheeky grin on his face, even though he had to carry most of the bags. Onyx insisted, but he recanted, he felt that he should pay her back somehow. IT seemed he completely forgot about the gemstone that he had given her when he first appeared on the boat.

His concentration was broken, once he heard the commotion. He stopped and locked his sole green eye toward the crowd. Apparently a man had got himself in trouble getting himself into a brawl. Leon blinked for the second, turned toward Onyx and noted her reaction. She chose to step away. His eyes went wide, why would she leave him alone to fend on his own? Maybe it was his old Military training bringing him back, but he was always told to leave no man behind. However, it seemed that Onyx did not see it that way, He looked back at the ground for a good second, opened his mouth, but ultimately said nothing.

He made his way back to Onyx, hoping that he didn’t lose too much ground. "I 'ave ter agree wiv 'er, shouldn't we 'elp 'im out?" He raised his eyebrow, and attempted to cross his arm. However from the mass amount of bags he was holding, to his long black hair getting in the way, he had to hold out.
User ImageMigoto's right eyebrow slowly raised, and scanning around the room flickering out his tongue. He didn't notice anyone important...why did it need to be secret...and ontop of that...oh the stairs...the dreaded stairs. Those things ARE a pain to slither on, always end up loosing grip on the boards. "Okay, I'll come." his eyes focused in on Raziel, and waited for him to grab his arm or something, because it was a whole lot easier to do that, rather then hitting the corner of the entrance with his face. He lifted up his right arm, and cocked his head. "Don't run me into any wallsss..." still being cautious about it.

(Faaaast fowards! )

(Insert a long paragraph here explaining how Migoto got downstairs, and is now in the room.)
