At the mention of Shinjiko's name, Mitsuki's ears twitched suspiciously. It would likely go unnoticed, as the subtle lowering of the angle would not be recognizable body language to normal humans, but it was a defensive posture for a wolf. As she stepped forward, her voice changed quality slightly, and he suspected a trap. He was ignorant to most of the common social cues, things like flirting or even veiled threats often went over his head. As she stepped forward, the change in her voice signalled to Mitsuki a trap of some kind. He raised his knife slightly, taking a half-step back.
A smarter man would have used her information to his advantage, and given false names for his own errands until he could determine if she would aid his cause or harm it. As it was, Mitsuki was not so elegant with such interactions. Instead he bared his fangs and growled, "Tousamamei? Tousamamei Shinjiko?" She said was just looking to talk to him. Maybe she could help lead him to Tous, "Then our goals are aligned after all. I need to speak to him." It occured to him that she would probably want to know why he was after Tous. She was honest - or at least he could only assume so - and was willing to share, so he supposed it was his turn, "I need to find Shinjiko as well. He crossed paths with a man named Dzaek, a powerful wind elemental. I have been tracking Dzaek, so that I..." There was a pause, deciding what he should share. She seemed comfortable in places like this. Truth was, he was out of his element. Someone who knew the lay of the land could be useful, "When I find Dzaek I am going to kill him."
