Mimzy remained silent as the king spoke, as it was her place to. She would have answered him swiftly if not for Clyde vouching instead. It was only then that Mim took her eyes off the ground and glanced up, a bit irked that he thought she couldn't speak for herself. But perhaps it was better than he spoke to the king. Mimzy was a base born and a foreigner with only bad news. It was the king's defeat that emboldened her enough to stand. Her king would have never admitted such loss. Why wasn't he trying harder? Why was he giving up so easily? As kind of a man Clyde had made him out to be, Mimzy realized that his backbone seemed to be missing. Watch your tongue or you might lose it, Togekiss warned before Mimzy landed herself in a boiling pot of oil.

Mimzy pursed her lips and kept in all of the anger that was penting up. It simmered down when Clyde continued to speak on her behalf. What he said flattered her beyond belief. To tell a king such great things that were just second nature... It brought color to her fair, northerner skin. Then he proposed a quest, one that Mimzy wasn't entirely sure that she was capable of. She still had so much to learn! She was but a beginner and would be completely useless in the field, right? It was when the king turned back and spoke directly to her that Mim stiffened. "Er..." she lost her voice for a moment, but then straightened her posture and spoke with the dignity of her people. "I seek for the world to be in balance. The teaching of The Wizard are that without balance, the planet as we know it begins to crumble. It would be my honor to find, Ho-oh," she answered.

His offer of 'anything' did pique her interest. Mimzy, though humble in some aspects, was a glutton for gold and treasure like the barbarians north of the mountain range. It wasn't gold she wanted, but she would take an offer when given one. But, not wanting to be rude, she phrased herself otherwise: "If I think of anything, I shall inform you," she said discreetly, panning through her mind, trying to decide on what it was she wanted.

"But I do ask if you have a great source of magic which I draw upon. You see, my powers have limitations. While I am in tune with the world, it is a subconscious melody. Searching for someone specific requires much more energy, especially if they're not in the area. Trying to search the entire planet at once would kill me in a matter of seconds. If you had a source I could draw energy from, I might get a glimpse of where The Wizard is and where we can start our search."
