Ebramsom de Lylles is a famous HeroEbramsom de Lylles is a famous Hero


I Need Information, And Yes I Am Desperate Enough to Ask You. (Dante, Open)

Pontius 40 Era XVIII

The Lylles Youth had been able to finally get directions to Dante's residances. He shook his head as he walked, not wanting to draw attention to himself he had asked the inn keeper.

He paused out side of the house and then walked up and knocked, his hood pulled up against the winter but his elvish eyes clear under his hood. He was hoping to speak with Dante about something he suspected he could do for him. He knew he was a merchant and traveled a lot and as such should be a good un tainted sources of information.

So himself covered by the cloak he waited for a responces to his knock his eyes dancing with interest.

The light sea breeze caused the decorative plant life of Dante's estate to dance and sway in the wind. The rustling of the trees, weird for this time of year in anywhere except Demios or Eunesia, sounded like the quiet whispers of the Elf Lord's courtiers while accompanying his bride to court or some other official gathering. His knock resulted in the sound of a Dog barking as the animal apparently was closing in on the front door from the inside. The fresh ocean breeze added a scent of serenity about the place and it didn't take much for the Elf Lord to feel at ease.

Perhaps expected, erhaps not, the person to open the door to Dante's mansion was a 5'5" blonde elven woman, wearing a pink shirt, pink trousers, and pink soft boots. She was drying her hands on a dish towel, which she tucked into her belt. With her eyes alight with curiosity she signed to him, "Can I help you?" Of course whether or not Ebram could understand signing would result in what transpired next...

Niven is a famous HeroNiven is a famous HeroNiven is a famous Hero


Juno heard the knock at the door and, having assumed guard dog duty at his current place of residence, bolted for the door from his place near his mistress. Niven was sitting in the kitchen at the table with Chariras, the young lad and the elf were colouring, while Kala was going about her business in the kitchen. Her head popping up at the sound and Juno's reaction, Niven watched as Kala moved to answer the door, giving her a look, silently questioning, 'Are we expecting someone?'

Niven turned back to Chariras and continued before she realized that whomever it was at the door might not be able to understand the draconess-in-elf-seeming. She was mute and could only communicate through signing, something that could be difficult to understand if you weren't used to it. Niven smiled at Chariras and said, "I'll be right back, ok sweetie?" She then got up from the table and headed to the foyer.

Kala was opening the door as Niven got to the doorway to the kitchen and there she waited for whomever was at the door to respond to Kala, ready to step in and help if it was necessary.

Juno, poked his head out from around Kala's legs and sniffed the stranger at the door. He too, watched and waited for what would occur, being sensitive to Kala's body language. Should he feel her tension rise, he would start a low menacing growl that came from deep within his throat.

Carnasch had been in the kitchen with Kala. They hadn't really been talking, as she was busy and therefore her hands were taken up, and she couldn't talk, but he just liked being around her, and he would help her with the things in there if she would let him.

When the door was knocked upon and Juno started barking, Carnasch waited in the kitchen, only poking his head out idly if the conversation took longer than he deemed convenient. After all, how dare someone steal what attention Kala did manage to give him around seven children, two other adults, and a dog, not to mention the countless other people in the city who slowed her brightening. And no, it did not matter that it may have been royalty, for Carnasch would not have reckognized Ebram as such even if he had arrived with a herald to announce him.

The barbarian otherwise waited in the kitchen, basically until he grew bored and wanted Kala to come back to him. Unlike anyone else, she took away his restlessness, and he was far better at sitting still when she were around.

Ebramsom de Lylles is a famous HeroEbramsom de Lylles is a famous Hero


The young lord had been dressed for the winter. Him self wrapped in a cloak and covered. He clearly appeared to be a winter traveler. His green eyes looked at the elvish woman who was standing before him. He was a bit surprised to see her answer the door, but he didn't allow it to show on his prepetually youthful face. He smiled his teeth flashing, and his lips turned up in a smile.

He waited for a moment for the woman to speak but seeing that she didn't the young nobleman contiuned. Unlike some he had been trained how to avoid those silent moments at first greating. "Serale Ma'am. I was hoping to speak with one Dante Asunder. Could you please tell him that Ebramsom is here to see him." He said in soft voice with a elvish laurylian accent that made it truely unqiue. He glanced around noting the dog, but when one has been around one doesn't pay much attention to dogs anymore.

Kala met Niven's gaze as she went for the door and gave a confused shrug. She hadn't understood the 'exact' question Niven was asking, but they had been around each other enough that the 'gist' was there. The draconess definitely noticed Carnasch's impatient look and couldn't help but smile at him for wanting her around so much.

As the man didn't seem to understand her signing Kala took a step back to allow Niven to take over. The mute beauty smiled at her dear friend and signed a courteous 'Thank you' to her. At least she didn't have to send for one of the children to translate.

Kala absently pet Juno as she watched the man. In spite of his handsome, youthful appearance she wasn't about to leave Niven alone with him. She did however send out a call message to Dante. After grounding her psychic energy she sent a message to him at his office on the docks, "Someone named Ebramsom is here to visit with you." As she was quite skilled in her craft the message included an image of the youth's face.

Dante back in his office, over his warehouse on the docks, had been going over the books, making sure all the accounting was in order. He received the message from Kala and a surprised look graced his features. The dracon in Eshlahier seeming grounded his own psychic energy and sent a return message to the woman, "Oh really? Tell him I'm on my way." It didn't really occur to Dante that the mute draconess would have trouble communicating with Ebram as she always seemed to make due.

Regardless he closed his ledger, locked it away, and informed Old beard that he had pressing business to attend to; placing the dwarf in charge as usual. The winged eshlahier bounded down from the office and headed toward his home at a quick walk. "This might turn into a very interesting brightening..." he mused.

When Kala stepped back, Niven moved forward and took over. The guest clearly didn't know how to communicate with a mute. The draconess signed her thanks and Niven shot her friend a smile.

Hearing the question that their guest had proposed before he had the chance to see her there, Niven smiled warmly at the elf. The trace of elvish accent gave him away. "Serale. Earl Asunder is from home at the moment…" Niven shot a glance at Kala, assuming that she'd sent out the call, "… however, we are expecting him shortly." The elf honestly had no way of knowing this, but she figured that it was a reasonably safe assumption and Kala would correct her if she was wrong.

"Won't you come in and wait for him?" Niven offered, stepping aside and allowing their guest passage into the house. Between Kala, Carnasch, Juno and herself, Niven knew that they would be reasonably safe from whatever this elf could dish out if he decided to cause trouble. And Dante was on his way. Niven may not be the lady of the house, but she was not about to have any guest of Dante's turned away or perceive to be mistreated or unwelcome in his absence.

If Ebramsom entered, Niven would lead him to the study. "Would you like any refreshment?" she would ask politely.

Carnasch is a famous HeroCarnasch is a famous Hero
The hulking mass that was Carnasch ducked under the kitchen door way and leaned far enough out to see the proceedings, and from what he saw when he did, Kala was unoccupied and Niven had taken over. There was someone at the door, a man, from what he could tell, and Carnasch slipped into Clara to examine the man's Ara.

It took him about fifteen seconds to do so, and unless the man was in Clara himself, he would never know. Neither would anyone else for that matter. The barbarian spent some time half in and half out of the kitchen door, examining the man's Ara, and the Ara of any magical items the fellow had on him.

If he was interrutped, Carnasch didnt mind really, and if he was interrupted by Kala, he was even cheerful about it. If he wasn't and finished his examination, he would duck back into the kitchen and wait for Kala.

Ebram raised an eyebrow at the Earl title, he hadn't heard about that, but that made little differences for his reason for visiting. He smiled at the young woman flashing his teeth. "Thank you kindely. I would be very grateful for your hospitality." Okay he was exactly sure how the relation worked here. The original woman who answered the door appeared to be a servant, not that it made any difference to the Lord, Lylles always respected those who helped. The second woman had his confused, but the again, until he had seen the house and heard the title he wouldn't have placed that kind of structure on Dante. Then again Ebram suspected that Dante was new to the ranks.

Ebram followed Niven into the house and towards the sitting room. As Carnasch looked at the Elvish Lord he would see that he was a mage of some sort but it would be hard to tell what level. Something low thought, a dabbler as it might be. He smiled at the woman. "If it isn't any convients I could uses with a cup of tea."

Kala looked at the man curiously as Niven took over. She too followed the pair to the sitting room, assuming Niven led him there, and at the request of tea she signed to Niven that she would take care of it and headed to the kitchen. She gave the other 'elven' woman a curious look, riddled with confusion as she disappeared into the grand hallway.

With a look of confusion she signed to Carnasch, "Do you know this man?" She continued to the stove and set a kettle full of water on it as she stoked the coals and added a little fuel. She took out a tray and set out one of the fancier tea sets. She made sure there were sugar cubes in a small bowl and cream in the creamer. She made sure she had a small vessel of honey.

Dante in the mean time was still heading toward the house, but given the distance and the reluctance of Kala to 'summon' him unless it was an emergency meant that Niven and Ebram would have a little time alone to 'chat' if they so chose.

Offering a comfortable arm chair to their guest, Niven took a seat on the couch adjacent to him. Kala signed that she would get the tea and followed it by a confused look. Niven merely raised her eyebrows and gave a very slight shrug. She had no idea what was going on either, nor who this Ebramsom was.

"Forgive me for not introducing myself earlier. I am Niven." She extended her hand towards the male elf in greeting. "The other woman you saw was Kala. She is mute and that is why there was trouble communicating." Niven glanced towards the kitchen hoping that it wouldn't take Kala long to get the tea and also wondering how long it would take Chariras to come looking for her.

Turning her attention back to the guest, Niven said, "We were not aware that you were coming, Mister Ebramsom. I'm sorry, but you seem to have caught us all a bit off guard." She gave him a warm, apologetic smile. Niven wasn't sure that Dante even knew that the man was coming. He was normally very forthcoming about such information. Her words didn't mean to convey that Dante had been remiss, merely that they were surprised by the sudden visitor. However, surprised or not, not knowing if this man was a friend or foe, the unknown man was going to be treated with the utmost respect that Niven deemed Dante would have liked his guests to be treated with. Perhaps this was a business man, though if that was the case, it was odd that he wouldn't have met Dante at the docks. And the raised eyebrow at the title hadn't been missed by Niven. If this elf was a friend, he certainly wasn't one who kept in close contact.

"Did you have a pleasant journey here from where you came?" Niven asked Ebramsom, polietly, folding her hands neatly on her lap, trying to make small talk until Dante arrived. She hoped he'd arrive soon. The she-elf had no idea how to play hostess in the home of an Earl.

Carnasch did not follow the group into the the room they went to sit in, presumably the study, but waited for Kala to return. When she did and she asked him if he knew who he was, Carnasch shook his head and said, "No, but he smells like a lordlying. He walks like them, and his clothes are to clean. He is also a mage, but not a very good one. I doubt he has been promoted even once yet." Being a woodsman, Carnasch noticed odd things like that. It seemed to be an occupational trait that they all had, and as a caster himself, it was easy to know about the other's abilities. Kala would know what being promoted meant, as she was a caster herself.

Kala was working on tea he could see, so Carnasch helped her and grabbed a couple of cups and saucers from the cupboard while she got the sugar, cream, and other tea condiments, plus the tea itself. Carnasch only grabbed two cups and little plates, one for Niven and one for thier guest, as he figured Kala would come back after delivering it, but if she required, he would grab another set for her. He would not being joining them, out of a general lack of interest, and he still held most of his disdain for the high-born type.

When Kala left again, Carnasch waited in the kitchen if it seemed like she would come back, and if not, then he found something else to entertain himself with.

Ebram took the offered hand and kissed it. He straightened and offered a friendly smile. The man Carnasch was correct he was a lordling, but then again anyone who paid attention could tell that, while his clothing wasn't the richest and could easily belong to a well off merchant, he had what was known as breeding. He walking straight and sure, and looked people in the eye and understood who he was, really who he was and in ways that even few of his own kind understood. He was wrong about one thing thought. He was actually an Apprentices Sorcerer.

He took the offered chair and nodded in apology. "It is a pleasure to meet you Niven." He said in that soft accent he seemed fine with the small talk, he was polite, and interested, and clearly friendly. "I do apologies for dropping in unannounced. I had hoped to not make my trip common knowledge as I was hoping to keep the purpose of my visit secret from court gossip." He said with a smile. "The trip from Prime was okay but I haven't ever really been much of a sailor, grew in the middle of the contienent, and am not to familiar with the nature of the sea." He gave a little chuckle. "I understand summer is better travel time by sea."

Ebramsom revealed that his journey had been in secret and the reasons behind it. Niven's surprise was impossible to keep from her face. "From court, you say? I'm so sorry, my lord, I didn't know. I would say that you have successfully fooled this household. I would have expected someone who spent time in the palace to have arrived with much more fanfare, if not at least with an escort of some kind. Forgive me for not receiving you in a fashion more suitable to your station," she said, kicking herself for not cluing in with the accent and the fine attire that he was someone much more important than a common businessman.

Niven tried to recover from this new information and smiled warmly at their guest as he spoke of his trip from Prime. Nodding, Niven agreed with him. "Indeed, I can imagine. We came just at the beginning of the season and the water was a bit rougher than I might have liked. I look forward to our trip back to Diana in the spring when, I'm told, the waters will be calmer. I hope for fair winds and following seas on your return trip, whenever that might be," she said with a smile.

"How is it that you have come to know Earl Asunder?" she asked, her curiosity getting the better of her. Her beau had not informed her that he was so well connected and she was very interested.

Kala smiled at Carnasch's assessment. She wasn't sure if he was right or not. He doubted Carnasch had ever 'seen' a lordling, well except for Dante but he didn't really count, much less knew what they 'smelled' like. As she waited for the water to warm up she asked Carnasch, "Why do you think a 'lordling' would come all the way out here?"

When she finished with the tea Kala asked Carnasch to keep an eye on Chariras, then she returned to the study and carefully set the tea out for Niven and Ebram. Since Dante had returned he had basically deferred to Niven as the lady of the house and Kala and the children... except for Maya... had followed suit.

As she set the tea out silently she chanced a sideways look at Niven still showing her confusion at the strange visitor. Sending out the call she realized that Dante was at a full run to get back to the house, either that or he was on a carriage or something. Looking down at Niven she signed, "Dante should be here soon." She then turned about and headed back to the kitchen to watch Chariras.
