    Goody-two-shoes Catnip; Seriously, they can't resist this stuff (Syl first, then open)

    "... Oi, oi, don't y'feel a bit 'o shame? I mean, I get w' we are 'n all, but... she's such a lil' thing!"

    On a road alongside one of the many forests of Aldmerrow, a group of about six men stood around a figure that barely came to most of their chests, and that was only if you counted her large hat. The little girl had a neutral expression, stoically looking down the road, as if through the man in front of her. The men in question, with their low-quality leather armor, axes, broadsword and other pointy weapons, were clearly not there to make small talk with her. No, they had waited to ambush a traveler for hours, and when they finally jumped out at one, what they got was not exactly what they were hoping for.

    "..."

    "Lookit her clothes, that's def'nitely high-quality. She's pro'lly some noble's brat, bet she ran away to go see the festival!" another of the man quipped, examining the almost formal-looking garments she wore. "W' could get a fair bit 'o coin with her as a hostage."

    "..." there was no response in her, instead she stared directly ahead.

    "... H-Hey, what if she's a witch...? I mean, look at her hat."

    "Psh, if she was, w'd be dead by now. More likely dumb... maybe deaf too. Oi, girly!"

    "Move aside, fool," she finally spoke up, tilting her head up until she could see the man in front of her's face from behind the brim of her hat. Her cold expression was akin to someone staring down at an ant making a beeline for their food, and the man grit his teeth in anger as the rest laughed.

    "Guess she's not dumb. So, wha'dda we do?"

    "Oi, oi, j'st give'er a lil whack and take'er stuff, or 'er. Either way, it's not good for us to be standin` out like this..." a thin, cowardly-looking bandit muttered, busy nervously scanning the treeline and down the roads for the slightest sign of trouble. Traffic had increased lately, which was good news for them, but it meant they couldn't afford to be wasting their time terrorizing small children, not when it was likely they'd get some attention from something. Some begrudgingly and one more than happy to do so, the group circled the girl, as one brought his sword up with the intent of cracking her in the back of the skull with the end of the grip.

    "Sorry 'bout this...!"

    Danger.

    She knew something was happening up the road ahead as she walked towards the bandits and the young girl's direction. Now normally one wouldn't deal with such ruffians, but the young woman wasn't the type to stand aside while someone needed help. With a flick of her sword, it switched to whip mode as she lashed out with it over a fairly decent distance, wrapping around the bandit's weapon that was about to strike the short girl.

    "It isn't nice to play rough, y'know!" The blonde woman spoke as she pulled back on her weapon, wrenching it from his arms easily. "Honestly, bothering people like this is so last year!"

    Anna, as she was named, sighed in a huff as she approached. She seemed to have no fear in her eyes as her weapon returned to sword mode... which she instantly sheathed. She stopped a couple feet away, placing her hands on her hips. "Honestly.. you're really gonna need to let her go." She says sweetly, "How about you all play with me instead? I got rubies?"

    "..."

    Close to the area where this ambush was taking place, there was a young woman. She was travelling close to the road, as she continued her trip to find a way to separate her Incantus and somehow get rid of him at the same time, and despite the deceivingly good day, it wasn't long before she encountered trouble.

    A group of bandits were apparently harassing a young, wealthy looking girl, and said girl was apparently not budging by their threats. And then another lady appeared, this one apparently trying to divert the attention of the bandits away from the girl. They looked like trouble, and she thought that those two might not hold up against a group of bandits.

    Then again, they looked like weak lowlifes, but if they tries something scummy, they could get the advantage.

    From the woods, a cloaked figure emerged. Her black hair slowly waving with the breeze, as she entered the conflict with a firm look on her face. "What's going on?" She made a simple question towards the bandits, and if they started a battle, they'd regret it.

    Five of the men were caught offguard by this sudden intrustion, only their cowardly friend seeing this coming. Of course, he wasn't about to let it go to waste.

    "This is what I was t'lkin about!" he shouted at his compatriots as one was disarmed, forced to pull out his dagger, they turned their focus onto the mysterious new intruder, and then divided it up as a second interloper made her presence known.

    "Our luck's turning around, lads! Women, not brats!" one of them spoke up, the girl behind them turning to face the scene. "If ya got rubies, why not try bein` a sweetheart and giving those to us. Ya got a nice sword too, so hand that over as well, we don't wanna muck up such a pretty lil thing..." he spoke out to the first girl.

    "N' you, didn't anybody teach you to mind 'yer own business? Just for getting involved, you can also drop any valuables you got!" The six were lined up, spreading themselves out a bit so that surrounding the two women would be easy as they waited for their responses.

    Sighing softly, Anna smiled. "If you want the rubies, first you gotta let the little one go." She says calmly. "Only then will I give you the reward."

    Yeah, she'd give them their reward, alright. But it really depended on if they were gonna be good boys or not. It'd be a waste of good rubies should they be bad, after all. Anna was actually considering giving them the rubies without a fight as she was a rather nice gal, but if they tried to rob her still... well, they'd get the hammer of justice!

    ...Ok, more of the sword of justice but who's counting?

    Anna noted the arrival of the other woman, blinking a few times. She really didn't need help and she could handle this on her own, but ah well. Might as well see where this leads! "Oh hey! I've got this under control, so no worries!" Anna called to the other woman. "I'm certain that they'll let her go, so no need to hurt them."

    "I beg to differ."

    A husky voice was heard, while it sounded rather low, it's volume was loud enough for it to be heard by everyone present. Anyone with keen ears would deduce that it came from Kassandra. And they'd be right, just not quite. Seemingly out of nowhere, a creature, similar to a wolf but larger, walked out of her frame, as if it was behind her back all along. He looked at the bandits with a confident look a wolf could muster, a small huff of fire coming from his nostrils.

    "How about you drop your valuables? I'm sure we can put them to better use." The tone he used was rather condescending, something that made Kassandra roll her eye. It was only when they had similar interest when she could stand Trebax, and even then, it took a lot of her to not berate him regardless.

    And then the other woman spoke to her. Wordlessly, her head turned to her, glaring at her before speaking up. "I am certain they won't, specially if you are offering them money to leave." She stated, before turning back at the bandits. Her arm moved underneath her cloak, as her hand held the handle of her sword. She wasn't going to draw it just yet, but if they tried anything weird, she'd have no problem.

    Besides, she needed them to step closer anyway. "Step away from the girl." She wasn't going to repeat that, but will they heed her warning?

    The bandits seemed perplexed as Anna seemed genuine in her offer. Then, of course, a freakin` wolf showed up snorting fire. It didn't take a genius to figure out what their response would be; some dropped their weapons in horror, one froze in place, and the rest bolted as the girl stood still, just the tiniest of a sweatbead rolling down her neck.

    "M-Monster!" screamed one in horror, as the one frozen in his tracks realized he was alone and finally made a break for the treeline with the rest. The two were left with just Trebax and the girl, who was busy staring coldly at the Incantus, her dark glare framed by all the little whiffs and strands of blonde hair escaping out from underneath her hat. Finally, though, her expression eased up; her focused glare gave away to an equally cold expression of disgust, as if she was looking at a cockroach.

    "... Thou were about to give ruffians reward for being simple fools with no gall. What logic resulted in such a bizarre course of action, giving them further means to carry on their work and accost others?" she finally said, her eyes locking onto Anna before glancing at the other woman and the wolf behind her. She stared at the two for a moment before turning around...

    And, er, starting to walk again. The road was dangerous, as the upcoming festivities had brought an increase in both traffic and banditry, but she.. wasn't exactly the friendliest little girl, nor the most appreciative of her rescue.

    "I've rectified your lapse of judgment," she said offhandedly, despite doing nothing of the sort as she carried on slowly. Despite the expensive-looking fabric of her outfit, there was enough dust on it to hint that she'd been traveling for a long while, and without a mount too. Her pale legs, sticking out from underneath the blue and white coat she wore over her red dress, had the occasional patches of dirt or a scratch here and there, most of the pink marks hard to make out on her skin, and her red shoes scuffed up from constant use. Was... was she really rich enough to afford those clothes? "... Do not expect a reward," she added, glancing over her shoulder at them.

    "Aww.. and now I'll never know if remote detonation on these things work." Anna sighed as she sheathed her weapon and began walking once more.

    Wait what?

    Detonation? Was she gonna blow them up somehow?

    Well, whatever. The trouble was dealt with so she just continued on her way. "Hmm.. where to head next..?" She asks herself aloud. Placing her rubies back into their small bag, Anna blinked and glances over at the small girl. "Reward? Why would I want a reward for a good deed?"

    ...Seems like the rest of the girl's words just went over her head.

    As for the girl with the fire-breathing wolf, she merely smiled at them in passing. "Be careful showing off your powers like that, miss!" Anna spoke with a nod. "Not everyone takes kindly to your type of people. Though I am on a journey to rectify that so maybe in the future everyone'll be friends!"

    With a light bow, she continued on her way, which happened to be the same way the little girl was headed. She didn't say anything to the little one, just absently followed behind her by a few paces.

    When Anna said something about detonations, Kassandra made a... Rather loud sigh. She definitely didn't want to hear anything about explosions if she was going to give out a long lecture about them. But then again, at least it seemed like she wasn't actually planning to buy off the bandits, so that was good.

    Of course, she turned to Anna when she made a mention of her powers. "... He decided to show off. If it were for me, he'd be sealed up in a coffin forever." She said, as Trebax made a chuckle. "Charming as ever." Ignoring what he said, she continued. "Besides, he's only a temporary encumbrance anyway."

    But then, the girl decided to trail off, offering no monetary compensation for their rescue. Kassandra couldn't help but feel a bit annoyed, but there was something else that caught her attention. "Oy, you." She said, walking to catch up to the girl. "You are open for another ambush if you just keep walking alone with your nose held high."

    The young girl seemed nonplussed as Ana began following behind her, and even as Kassandra came up behind her and began criticizing her.

    "That's no concern of mine," she replied curtly, continuing on down the road. "Mind thy own business. Learn from thine travel companion, still thy tongue."

    Though she would respond when spoken to, it was only until further down the road they came across a tavern that she stopped her march, slowing down as the scent of lunch escaped the structure.

    "..." Her eyes broke away from the road ahead as she begrudgingly looked at it, the scents of food and drink proving too much even for her devoted mindset. Her stomach growled, and with a frustrated sigh she trailed off towards the roadside tavern, tossing the two a small look as she did.
