Oassu glanced at the little bunny in Felina's hands surprised "Hmm I guess with all his fur he'll be roasting same as Hebal would," he admitted "Also worried because Cid will make Felina stand out all the more," he added with a hint of concern "Doubt you get many rabbits like that in the desert here, hope he copes well" he shrugged.
Itaka grunted rolling over to glance sleepily at the outfits Seph had "Couldn't you just stick a load of sunscreen on if you hate those clothes so much?" he said rolling out of bed and into the bathroom.

Seph shrugged "none strong enough to work efficiently. Sun creams here are hardly designed for even part ice demons. May as well keep a few parts protected" she laughed making way for Itaka.
Alpha scratched his head "Well cant you just keep the little guy in your bag and use a cooling spell in there or something?" Maybe even keep him under your hat" he suggested waving upon seeing Hebal flop down on the shadier side of the couch.
"Morning guys. Is it just me or is it as warm up here as it is in the engine room. Speaking of cooling spells could I pretty please have one Feli" the viera requested.
Hayate laughed watching Hebal spread out across the couch "Morning and welcome to my birth place. The airship is already cooler than it is outside" he greeted her giving her a small pat on the ear. "You can find hares at the edge of rivers if lucky. Most people would probably be too stupid to tell the difference if you rolled him in the sand a little" he shrugged.
"Well I guess thats not so bad though he could still peek out from my bag even with a cooling spell. Still too late to worry now about stuff like that" Felina sighed fetching Hebal a glass of water. I'll give you a spell soon. Just waiting for Seph to get up and she will probably need the same spell and I want to save my mana as much as possible"

Zadina frowned overhearing Felina as he emerged from the stables with Merric in his arms "Come now, cousin I am a perfectly competent white mage as well, you needn't handle all the burden" he said opening his book and casting a cooling spell on Hebal. "There you are Miss Hebal, it's a shame this is probably going to be a horrible trip for you" he said sitting up on the couch with Hebal and letting Merric waddle over to her.
Jeckhart also mumbled "I also know a bit of a cooling spell as well" knowing his magic probably wasn't as potent as the others "If ever you need a little bit just let me know Hebal" he said sitting on the other side of Zadina "Good Morning my lord" he greeted the young boy while Zadina smiled and returned his welcome.
Oassu snickered at Hebal "Well hopefully with all the white magic in the party this won't be as insufferable for some folks, though it's quite nice in here in terms of warmth just now" he said stretching "Reminds me of our trip to Tricasia, the climate there was lovely" he sighed happily.
Itaka sighed splashing water into his face to help him wake up "I suppose not, though you'd think there'd be a market for that thing" he looked at himself in the mirror for a moment "Then again I suppose Ice demons just avoid the desert to prevent that problem, fire spells but be a real problem for you" he said rubbing his chin "Anyway you go ahead, I'm just going to freshen up and shave before I head out, probably left it too long" he muttered.
Hebal sighed leaning further back against the couch "ugh thanks guys I really appreciate it. This place must be a nightmare for anyone trying to travel without magic to help out. At least in Tricasia you could splash about in the sea when it got really really hot" she replied scooping Merric up into a hug.
Alpha shrugged "Tricasia is nice I guess. I liked it more before it became some fancy tourist attraction though. The locals were more friendly and the place was more interesting too"
Seph nodded "demons in the demon world don't tend to travel much outside their climates so yes. It is unheard of for an ice demon to enter the desert... Unless of course they are possessing someone to get around the heat issue. Though the unshaven look is probably more common than you think around here" she added with a snicker before leaving the room.

Felina hesistated surprised by Zadina's interruption "Umm ok then I guess that works and I suppoe since you are pulling all the cooling spells out now I guess it will be me who risks making sure Mari and her pets are awake too. Personally I liked the tourism in Tricasia. Makes a nice change to go somewhere so welcoming and open minded" she added cautiously getting up to take a peek into Mari and Hebal's room giving Seph a hello as she passed.
Hayate waved at the new comers "And so we almost have a full party. Though ugh.. those clothes wont exactly do you much protection from the sun you know" he added to Seph with his eyebrow raised. "Tricasia isnt bad though at times its easily just as hot as here just with a bit less sand so never really seemed all that special to me" he shrugged.
Zadina giggled as Merric kwehed happily and headbutted Hebal "I don't know, it's not especially bad for me, I just needed to dress appropriately" he said indicating his light beige tunic and shorts "Though it feels a little silly to dress like this I read a book saying this was how desert elves dressed" he explained shrugging.
Oassu glanced at Seph and waved a greeting "Huh, you don't wear any kind of armour in battle, surprised you'd wear clothes here, the risk of getting hurt can't be any greater" he joked "Did you sleep well?" he asked.
Mari waved hello to Felina as she entered the room while she sat playing with Ivy and Sophia on the bed "Greetings Felina, is it time for us to go?" she asked sighing as she glanced over at her armour "I guess it's too heavy and hot to wear out there in the sands, I'll make do" she said hopping out of bed and picking up Sophia while Ivy flew over to Felina instantly shocked at her hair before sitting down in it and turning it back to it's original blue. "I think Ivy preferred your old look" Mari chuckled.

Alpha smirked ruffling Zadina's hair "nice try kid but you still look a bit too neat and tidy to look the part. All the kids around here run about with their faces covered in sand and dust and occasionally the odd cactuar injury" he teased.
"well I think you look great" Hebal assured Zadina while she returned the headbutt from Merric. "Hehe I'm always going to stand out no matter what I do though I hear my normal clothes are similar to some of the ones some ladies wear anyway"
Seph shrugged opening the stable door to check on her pet and earning herself a loud kweh from Chobi. " hey if I am going to burn non stop the whole time I am here, the very least I can do is make sure the important bits are covered up. I don't have a lot of clothes and the only weaver just left the party so can't be picky" she replied apathetically.
Felina smiled shaking her head at Ivy "Oh trust me I like my hair more its original colour too Ivy. Its just its supposed to be a trick for all the people outside. You like tricks so think you can work with me a little on that?" she reasoned with the sprite, placing a little white ball of light above Ivy's head. "We are just waiting on Itaka and yourself now. I wouldn't advise wearing armour in the desert though.. Cant exactly move through the sand easily"
Hayate laughed moving Alpha's hand away from Zadina "hey leave the kid alone, he looks ok to me. Though when I used to wear clothes similar to what you are wearing I used to laugh at you Yithra elves in all your heavy robes and overly decorative and impractical"

Ivy hopped off Felina's hair and sat on the little white ball of magic hovering above her contentedly. "You are probably right, it would make us stand out more than we already would as well" Mari sighed getting up and retrieving her sword from the side of the room "Will need to ask Hebal if she can make me that strange ventilated armour of Gilgamesh's someday" she pondered as she attached her sword to her hip before beckoning to Ivy to come sit on her shoulder "Well I'm ready to go in any case" she said.
Zadina shook his head frowning as he tried to fix his hair "Our robes aren't impractical, it's colder in Yithra, especially in Winter, they keep us warm and snug." he protested waving to Seph as she entered the room.
"Indeed, it's often the Elves who people attribute to bringing robes into fashion" Jeckhart chimed in "Robes weren't in popular use in other cultures for a long time until mixed culture cities started cropping up." he pointed out.
Zadina nodded "Plus robes are the traditional outfit of mages, they provide decent protection and allow the mana to flow freely through the fabrics unlike armour" he stated matter-of-factly.
Alpha chuckled "Well we demons always used to laugh at you guys for wearing clothes full stop and felt you just did it to try and feel better than other animals. We can have some primative views when we want to. I think thee point is we shouldn't make fun of cultures for their choice in attire" he cheerfully concluded. "now Seph on the otherhand, it is perfectly fine to mock her clothes for being impractical" he added earning an eyeroll from his fellow demon.
Hebal scratched her heed puzzled by the last comment "Well I would wear something similar to what Sephy has on myself you know. I dont need to wear robes to keep warm though as I have my own built in coat though always wanted my own one as they always look so swishy and soft" she announced.

Felina smiled and waited for Ivy to leave her hair before recasting the colour changing spell. "I don't think Hebal could replicate such a legendary suit of armour but in et she could one day make one equally good. Though perhaps you should stay out of your armour more often. You are quite pretty and it gets hidden away all the time" she cheerfully added as she stepped out the room.
Hayate paused fighting a small laugh from Hebals comment "Bear in mind as well, the most common professions amongst desert elves are thieving and assassinating as opposed to anything magic related. Most wealthy high elves tend to go down the magic path. Capes were a fashion for a while here until people started getting caught or killed from capes getting caught on things or in doors during a chase"
Mari shook her head disapprovingly "I don't feel right without my armour as is, it's just not comfortable for me but come on Ivy stop playing around" she said to the sprite who dashed back towards her shoulder to settle down while Mari rocked Sophia before following Felina out of the room "Greetings everyone, are we ready to leave the ship?" she asked.
"I should hope so!" Itaka answered emerging from his room behind Mari "I'm dying to get out this ship and enjoy a bit of the warmth on my skin" he said with a teasing wink at Seph across the room. "Sure you must be eager to see your kid as well Alpha" he added glancing at the old demon.
Oassu smirked nodding agreement with Hayate "Yeah we banned capes in our guild outright, too many things for it to get caught on in the city" he said moving across the room back to Felina's sides and nuzzling her gently in greeting "Still I don't think we're waiting on anyone else Itaka so we should be fine to go" he said.
Zadina nodded "Yes Miss Hebal they are very nice and soft" he said whispering to Hebal "Though I'm glad you aren't wearing Seph's clothes, they look too funny" he mumbled quietly to her before picking up Merric ready to move him off as he kwehed in greeting to the others "Still I am ready to go Cap'n!" he said brightly.

Seph rolled her eyes at Itaka "Well if you were dying to get yourself sunburn, why did it take you so long to shower? We have been waiting ages for you to get out of there. You will just get smelly and sweaty in a few hours anyway" she teased back turning away from him.
Heabal giggled hearing Zadinas comment "I guess its just a culture thing really. Those clothes are probably more comfortable than you think she whispered back then let out a small yawn. "aye aye Captain Alpha! would you care to lead the way?"
Alpha smiled "Well sure. Theres only a little walking through the desert to go but best do it now in the early hours of the morning than in the middle of the day. Though you know... I didnt actually tell my kid I was coming since we sort of arrived before any mail would so hope he's not running any stupid errands" he pondered opening the doors for everyone.
Felina paused choosing to be the first out after Alpha "Well then I guess it sort of makes sense. It's not like its going to get cold enough out here for a cape anyway and... oh wow! It's so bright out here I think I am going to need some sunglasses" she frowned shielding her eyes from the sunlight. "So uh wheres the settlement?"
Hayate chuckled overtaking Felina "You get used to it after a while though its just over that sand dune" he explained pointing to the east. "So do you think your son will be happy to see you or horrified" he joked at Alpha kneeling down and running his fingers through the sand while the waiting for the others to join them.
