Laverna Ambis An oddly dressed girl strolled down the busy streets of Lumiose, a man who seemed to blend in more with the crowd following her at her side. "Ya think this'll be more fun?" Laverna asked, nudging her companion playfully in the side, only to earn a disinterested grunt as he looked away, seemingly eyeing a rather well-dressed woman. A small smirk played on Laverna's lips as she followed his gaze. "She looks like she has something," this time the man nodded in agreement, matching Laverna's smirk with a devious smile of his own, and with those few words the two parted ways. Hours later Laverna reappeared at the same spot she was before, a frantic expression painting her features,"Damian?!" She exclaimed, standing on her toes trying to see over the crowd of people who gave her an almost pitying look. "Damian!" She called out once more, her voice cracking this time as tears threatened to spill, as she parted her lips to call out for the mystery person once again, a woman tapped her almost hesitantly on the shoulder. "Excuse me, ma'am?" she asked tentatively, holding onto the small hand of a child who looked poorly dressed who carried a small satchel that looked as if it was being held together by sheer luck. "Y-yes?" Laverna managed to say in a shaky voice, her eyes locking onto the small child, and immediately she flung herself at him, putting him in a tight hug that could kill a man, frantically the child tried to escape her grasp, gasping for air. "Damian!" she breathed a sigh of relief "You idiot, I told you not to stray too far, or you would get lost!" quickly Laverna turned her attention to the woman, taking her hands and giving them a slight squeeze. "Thank you so very much for returning my baby brother, he's honestly such a scatter brain," "Oh, it was no problem at all! He was such a dear to be with, although might I be so bold as to ask why he doesn't speak? Ever since I found the darling he hasn't uttered a word," "He's a mute," Laverna said, her voice trailing off, her eyes glazing over to the child who seemed to be just as solemn as she was about the information. "I had no idea-oh dear," she said flustered, bringing her hands over her mouth unsure of how to take the information. "It's not a problem at all!" Laverna reassured her in a cheerful voice hoping this would reinforce what she said, "But as you can see it's getting a bit late, and our mother is probably losing her marbles since I told her we'd be back ages ago," she said picking up the child, who wrapped its arms tightly around her neck, waving at the woman goodbye Laverna spoke. "Oh, yes, of course, of course," she said with a curtsy and offering Damian a small wave as well before she walked away. Laverna was quick to leave once the woman's back was turned to her, making a quick turn into a rather questionable alleyway. She looked over the area once, twice, and once feeling safe in the area she dropped the child who effortlessly fell on his feet. He folded his arms, annoyed with the suddenness of the drop. "Hey now, don't give me that face, what'd you get? Ya proud of me, Zero?" she teased, holding up a beautiful ring with a peculiar stone embedded in it. He snickered, tossing the satchel at Laverna and doing a small jump before transforming into a foxlike creature with black and greyish fur covering its body and a pointed muzzle. Laverna opened up the satchel, giving the mane of her Zoroark a ruffle as she dug through the contents, pleased to see the money and jewels. "A lot more than usual, she take you home or something?" The Pokemon nodded, clearly proud of what he brought in. "We'll pawn half and sell half to the next city after we finish business we have with the King here." The pair remained in the alleyway for a while longer, just to be safe they didn't run into the woman who learned she had been robbed blind. Once they were ready to move, Zoroark took the form of the man from earlier, adjusting the sword at his side as if it was real. To their luck, it didn't take long to meet the king, it was faster than they expected, and clearly he was desperate. "My Lord," She spoke in a respectful tone, bowing her head to the king and her Zoroark doing the same, "We've come on request of the letter you've distributed, it's come quite a far way, even to reach a place like Kanto," she jabbed her partner in the side quickly, noticing the mocking expression that dared make an appearance on his face. To her luck, the king didn't seem to notice the small act of violence. "Oh wonderful, if you would be so kind as to wait a while, there should be another person here," the man paused for a moment before picking up his sentence once more "Might I have the name of the man who'll be helping me fulfill my request?" he asked motioning to the Pokemon in disguse. An exasperated sound escaped its lips as it doubled over, making a sound that was its way of laughing. The king blinked in confusion at the gesture, and Laverna smiled blankly, just the smallest bit offended by the assumption. "Sir, I will be the one fulfilling the request, the man beside me is no man but a Pokemon from a different land, but this Pokemon seems to fancy a more human looking apperence," she received nothing more but a chuckle, and an apology that seemed a bit too sarcastic for her liking, like a father telling his child that they do have superpowers. Although there was no ill-will intended, she couldn't help but click her tongue in agitation. "He goes by the name Zero, and I'm Laverna Ambis," she had at least earned a curt nod of acknowledgment, all that was left to do was wait for this third person and get her instructions.
