The sun seated itself high among the clouds in the blazing, but pleasant noon of in the forests where the Village of the Earth rested. Birdsong filled the air, as did the chatter of villagers going about their daily routine. Children played in the streets. Men laughed. Women chattered. Gay men sighed as they wondered if they would ever find true love. Haters hated.

But one spotty-haired stranger walked through the crowds confidently. Her eyes were focused forwards like any carnivore walking through a herd of prey to find the weak one, though most might not have describe the "weak" person as feeble at all. In fact, he was a large blacksmith who, a previous night, had been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

And unfortunately, he was supposed to meet her in the woods in a previous night and she'd stood him up. Certain... situations had developed and she didn't make it there. It was only now that she returned to see him at all.

His forge wasn't hard to find. The scent of liquid metal and growling flames acted like a beacon to her sensitive nose.

And when she walked into the business, she proceeded to make herself perfectly at home. After all, this was someone who was supposed to be helping her with something... someone she was more powerful than, in fact.

Each tap marked the strike, each strike was made for a reason and as the armor glowed an orange and yellow tint its form was shaped into something which would be used by the one who had commissioned his services. The forge which he also called home reeked of burning metal and ember with an unpleasant mix of body odor which combined could throw off the weak stomach but working in this environment for over 10 years gave him a resistance to such smells in fact they gave him a sense of comfort and peace. A large hiss filled the air as hot iron met with cool water with steam filling the work space around him to the point where he could not see the features of his visitor and thinking that a new client seeked out his expertise he placed his hammer on the anvil and proceeded to open a window to allow fresh air to replace the unpleasant stench. It wasn't until he took a harder look at the person that his brow grew heavy as his expressions took a turn for the worse though this was not to be interpreted as disrespect more like annoyance being created by inconvenience "Ahhhh, so you finally came to collect. It's only been a few days" his voice clearly showing sarcasm though the large man failed to do it any justice "I see you've slipped into something a bit more comfortable, please, by all means make yourself at home"

Iskra had had a long few days, and her brow lifted slightly at the attitude she got from the much larger man.

Of course, just because he didn't mean it as respect didn't mean that this pack animal didn't receive it as such.

The spotty-haired woman stood up and walked towards him. Very slowly. Her manner remained cool until she stood before the forge and very carefully leaned on it. Of course, the embers were hot, but it was mostly a display of supernatural power on her part. The superheated temperatures didn't really hurt her, though flames born of magic and the spirit might have. Her heritage was infernal, after all, even if her spirit could only manifest ice.

And she simply leaned there and stared into the blacksmith's face neutrally, her blue eyes showing the vague sort of menace of a cat's stare when looking upon some bird.

Several moments passed, in fact, and she simply continued to stare. It probably meant more to her, as the beast she was. Staring was a common sign of aggression in many non-human species.

"Don't tell me you came all the way here to look upon me" he turned around to make his way towards the room in which he slept to change out of his working attire which now reeked of sweat and odor "There is bread in the cupboards and a bottle of fresh milk in the kitchen, help yourself, I need to wash up". Minutes passed before he returned in a clean change of clothes along with a map he had obtained from a traveling merchant at the cost of a sack or metal scraps from his forge....one mans trash. He sat down on the table then spread the map from corner to corner as he grabbed a small piece of charcoal and marked their current position which was located in a clearing surrounded by dense forest "I've only traveled to Medius once or twice in my lifetime but there is no official pathway from here. Do you know a safe way?" his large hand supported his wide chin as his elbow rested on the table, a sigh escaping his lips while his other hand ran through his long golden hair "Just out of curiosity, have you ever heard of a band of humans called Knights which are affiliated with Medius?"

Of course, just because the man moved didn't mean that her confrontational behavior stopped. She simply followed the blacksmith and watched him change with the same unblinking gaze that she'd been staring into his eyes with previously. She continued to stare on as he retrieved the map and spread it out on a table.

He talked and she stared on. Ostensibly, he was talking about the logistics of how exactly they could kidnap a woman for the goal that she'd explicitly stated a few nights prior, but the situation had changed.

Moreover, she felt she couldn't actually proceed until she'd addressed his disrespect. It was hard to remember at all times that humans had a different way of going about these things. The demon probably would have to be reminded sometime soon, as her first movement outside of staring was to grab the sturdy man by the back of his fresh shirt and slam him face-down atop the map, her hips pressed forward firmly against his rear. Fortunately, she was still in female form.

"I haven't heard of them," she finally said. "But I know some safe paths through the woods. For now, I need your help with a different matter."

It happened in less than a blinking moment as his face slammed against the solid oak table which he had found from the ruins of the old world with the demon placing herself behind him in a dominating position with this being the second time she had total authority over his movements. He grew tired of this treatment but with her power and his current state there was not much he could do without suddenly being transformed into an early dinner. His lungs expanded as they were filled with oxygen accompanied by a deep sigh of annoyance "A different matter?" he knew there was no point in trying to struggle as her female form hid a deceptive truth to her strength instead he made himself as comfortable as the situation would allow. He had little love for demons and entities of evil as they tended to assert their dominance on what they perceived as lesser beings though he was not stupid to make this bluntly obvious as they possessed an innate strength which far exceeded humans.....he would have to bide his time and remain in her services until he got stronger....patience would be his greatest ally at this time.

"Yes, things have changed," she said airily before backing off of the subdued male. Rather, she assumed he was put in his place because he didn't struggle or do much else other than sigh. "I've done some... stuff in hell to some female demons. I mean... I sold them up the river in exchange for something awhile back." With a sigh, she recalled the 27 women who she basically fed to a draconic spirit of power and knowledge. She sought the knowledge, yes, but what she learned was something truly evil, and it invoked dread in her now, even when she thought about it. "They were waiting to ambush me in my home. I barely escaped. They're still there."

She put her hand to her chin, walking around slowly until she was on the other side of the table. "There are twelve of them, and they control the snow like I do. They are very unhappy about what I did what I did to their... sisters... though they do a similar and more horrible thing to men." She stopped and sat down on the table adjacent him, taking a piece of charcoal as well and drawing shapes on the map. "I can get them, but they do not hold still long enough for me to bite them. I'm going to need bait." Her mouth began to tug at the corners, and at length, she laughed a troubling cackle. "You're more than perfect for the job."

Yet another sigh escaped his lips as he contemplated the aspect of 12 other beings which were similar to Iskra which caused a chill to run down his spine in an uncomfortable manner. He scratched his head as he looked at the map while she doodled various shapes and symbols "You attract this attention alot? It's not like I have much of a choice in this situation but the least we can do is prepare a few traps should they get past your jaws....I don't know about you but I quite enjoy my body parts, ALL OF THEM. In relation to your abilities how do they compare? I need a fair idea on what I'm going to be dealing with and if its futile that I even fight these beasts" if these demons were on par with his 'companion' then he clearly stood no chance and would be better off acting merely as bait whilst she picked them off one by one. He stood slowly then proceeded towards a chest where he grabbed a pair of gauntlets fashioned by another blacksmith in town which would act as a last measure should he have to defend himself "So whats the plan?"

The woman didn't get up, she simply continued to draw until there was a spot on the map that looked something like the brothel she'd attempted to start overrun with wailing, weeping, naked figures, all female, some of them with hoods or long hair.

"Their powers aren't like mine. That's a truth about most spirits. There's a lot of different kinds," she started drawing a little man near the entrance of the drawing of the former club. "These don't actually kill you or eat you or harm your body in any way. Your body will be just fine, eventually." She began to draw a bunch of skeletons peppering the lawn of her property. "You haven't heard of the yuki onna clan, have you? They're a group who lived in hell for awhile at the peak of its highest mountain." Over medius, she drew spirits flowing out of its famous pit. "Hell has all-female clans sometimes, as the humanoid females aren't strong enough to live by themselves like many of the male demons. These creatures make their living by seducing male spirits... taking advantage of the needs nature gave them." She drew several skeletons around the pit of Medius. "When they fall, the harpies gain ownership of the male's body. This is how these spirits can survive and interact with the physical world... by siphoning the mortality from a mortal. As for what happens to the mortal..." She returned to the club with the charcoal, drawing many dark wraiths wandering around the property. "Their minds and souls become tethered to these women for the remainder of eternity, but it's not because they're forced to." She speckled the property with blood and little chains. "They start to gradually become blind. They somehow get it in their minds that their job is to protect these demons, even though the witches are literally taking everything and giving nothing back." She finished the drawing with a rather ominous-looking, dark eye that had a heart instead of a pupil. "The process is pleasurable for the man, of course. The pleasure blinds them. They're strongly attracted to men with a lot of vitality and a strong protective instinct. It's why I think you'd be best as bait. If I kill them fast enough, then no harm will come to you."

"As you could most likely tell my knowledge of spirits is basic. So if these men have been turned into wraiths, how are we supposed to kill them? Do they possess physical bodies at all?" this concept was new to the blacksmith, he had not come against these foes before as they generally stuck to their areas which normally rested to the southern forests. The only problems they really had were stray beasts and wild animals which strayed from their packs or the occasional bandit who thought they could easily exploit the farming villages fortifications. The brute sat down as his index finger tapped against his chin as he thought of the odds of his survival considering the foes they were going up against though the hyena demon seemed confident in her own abilities which rested some doubt in his mind. He slid each gauntlet on an arm which would provide a firm and stiff arm if or when he needed to attack.....it was safe to say he wasnt going down without a fight "Wraiths, female spirit clans, witches and demons. There is so much I don't know about your kind. Lets get this over and done with, the sooner the better."

Iskra answered quickly, "Oh, you don't need to worry about the wraiths too much." Her hand waved the thoughts off dismissively. "They don't have physical bodies, and these demons are young and haven't had a chance to really acquire a lot of them. Their tricks don't work as well in hell. The creatures there have grown wary of such tactics over time. I guess that's why they thought it'd be good to take over my building in some sort of act of revenge."

She stood and nodded, walking towards the door and soon out of it with a bit of an urgency in her step. She didn't really want anything to happen to the rat clan that resided with her, as reluctant as she might be to admit such a thing. They probably weren't hurt, but the thought of them coming to some harm when one of the self-entitled little witches grew annoyed with their presence. It would be a miracle if the little things weren't evicted out into the elements already.

"Yea, just remember that we have to be cautious... well, you have to be cautious. I can pretty much handle myself. Do you have any further questions?"

A sigh of relief befell the blacksmith upon hearing the hyena demons words "Thats the best thing you've said all day. I have no further questions so lets get going. Im going to need to pack a few supplies first just in case the situation calls for it" the large man proceeded to grab a backpack and fill it with various contents including food, bottles of water and a few other beverages to keep his energy levels high. Once he completed his final check he looked at Iskra "Lets go, your going to have to take the lead on this one"

The hyena demon needed no urging to take charge. Indeed, she considered herself ranked above all the humans, creatures who were mere prey in her eyes.

She watched the blacksmith... pack things. Honestly, it seemed like a good idea to actually have a few provisions for hard times instead of simply grabbing everything needed from around in the environment the way she did. Of course, she took her weapons from home, but honestly she carried around very few other things that she didn't intend to trade away to somebody for the stuff she wanted at the time. It made sense, however. Beasts of the field generally weren't known for their skills in preparing for things, other than the little flitting prey animals like the squirrels who were dependent on the seasons.

"Come on, then," she urged flatly. She wouldn't make eye contact with any of the humans on her way out of the village. Her mind was on the door and on getting back to her home as quickly as possible. The sun remained high as well as the temperature outside, and she didn't feel at rest until they were safely outside those claustrophobic walls.
