While all the talking is going on, Grimm is just happy that the unicorn seemed to take a liking to him. Laughing softly, Grimm feeds the mystical beast and gives Niji a small and unsteady bow. When the royal Entourage appeared, Grimm simply rolled his eyes and mumbled something incoherent under his breath. Grimm was very much an absentminded drunk, with the attention span of a goldfish to boot.

Searching his many pockets for more treats to give to Niji, Grimm does not notice King Richard approach. Looking up from his unsuccessful search, Grimm frowns as he realizes the unicorn's affection has been stolen by the well dressed man. At that moment, King Richard is just a gaudily dressed man in Grimm's eyes. It was probably for the better, as Grimm would have been liable to do something offensive if given the chance. When the king talked to him, the drunk Grimm smiled widely and nodded in agreement.

"Yes a wondro...wonder...pretty horse! Like from the stories I was told as a child!" Letting out a hiccup, Grimm gave Niji one last pet then wandered back over to the food table. "Wheresa meat? I like meat...yummy meat.." His attention now on his still not full belly, Grimm clumsily searches through the various platters. In the process knocking several pieces of fruit and bread to the ground.

Once the royal family entered inside Benjie ceased from playing further songs. He watched with quiet interest with how the King dealt with his would-be killer. To his astonishment the Filipino watched James Dean sentenced to a lifetime of servitude to the kingdom. He had half expected a call for execution. Richard apparently wasn’t like he expected of a medieval ruler to behave with dealing with prisoners.

Very curious indeed. When the samurai woman drew closer the rest of their small group, Ben looked away from her. While they were technically on the same side, it was a hard thing to stomach for the Islander. Being in a new world doesn’t mean the scars of the old one go away if at all. Trying to ignore Yuzuki as much as possible Ben continued listening to the exchange between the others. He nodded when King Richard spoke about his brother up north begrudgingly allowing the mission discussed back to council. Of course Anne, Zuki, Harry, Grimm and Leonidas did not know about that yet.

They will soon. Benjie noted, not thinking there could be anything else the royal family wanted to say.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Burton backed into the crowd after talking briefly with the two ladies. He noted Genessa's attitude and expression. It seemed likely now that Genessa was doomed for further disappointments and he felt badly about that. Chize on the other hand was achieving her plan. The Rose Kings seem to have gone along with the idea however grudgingly.

Burton was curious how Grimm would take to the plan, the man was completely drunk. Burton felt fortunate that he himself didn't have so much of the fruit. The adventurer was getting the vague idea that perhaps the problem of the Samurai would solve itself. She didn't seem to be interacting much with these people at the moment.

When his Majesty arrived, Burton bowed as he would with complete respect due a foreign king in his own realm. It was not kneeling or a full bow. Taking in the visage of his Majesty, Burton was impressed. As the idea of a meeting was mentioned and all of those not part of that council decision were ushered away... Burton had to agree with Anne and gave Benjie a knowing look.

The Great Houdini

Harry was enjoying Benjie's guitar playing for as long as it lasted. Anne proceeded to assure him of Yuzuki's intentions and good will. She moved towards them ending up very close by. Harry remained doubtful, perhaps due to Benjie's own easily read body language regarding the young woman. At any rate, Harry clammed up just to be safe.

About then the Royal's came out of the castle. King, Queen and Princess and another man who seemed important among the red guild. There was then some tension as the King declared Dean's punishment for the attack. Miss Orlock became rather incensed at what she determined to be a light sentence. Something about that bothered Harry a bit, and he wasn't sure why. Something to think about later. Mister important Red Guild guy told Miss Orlock to stop making an argument with His Majesty. Then that guy noticed Dean wasn't the same as earlier. One of the Red Guild guys who had helped Harry with Dean earlier pointed at Harry and explained. Mister important Red Guild guy looked at Harry, mumbling something and rubbing his chin like an overdone Vaudeville villain.

This gave Harry the creeps. There was some talk among the Royals and Chize and the soldiers and everyone but the Royals and the Strangers were sent away. Suddenly there were alone with the King and Queen, their daughter and Chize. Anne said something about this not being a simple talk and Harry couldn't agree more.

"Yes, it is only right you would be present for this." Queen Gweyr says to Chize then looks at Benji and Burton. "Though it is you two who will have the floor now."

Evidently this man wasn't aware of how to properly imbibe the fermentali. King Richard thinks watching Grimm and petting Niji. He looks down at the fruit and bread that fall to the ground, and then around as a flock of colorful birds emerge from the trees and shrubs of the garden to pick their prize of the fallen. They look like sparrows but have iridescent feathers of green, blue and orange. He gives Niji one last pat on the snout, and walks over to watch the birds peck away at it all. "Apologies, I did not think to include meat in my orders. But patience good man. Soon this will be over, and you'll be taken somewhere with meat aplenty." He assures the rough man then rejoins his wife and daughter.

All the while this happens Leonidas watches King Richard as he moves around, although the man himself is not bothered by this. He awaits whatever it is Benji and Burton have to say why they are being given the floor by the royals.

"Oi now!" Anne speaks up raising her hand and standing up. "I got something to say to King Richard, before anything else, as I been waiting long enough!" This makes Leonidas roll his eyes because of course this woman wants to speak first. Dean meanwhile sits quietly, waiting for all things to be revealed.

"What is your query, Miss Bonny?" King Richard asks.

"I come a ways, been through a lot in a few days," Anne begins walking over to look King Richard in the eye. ", on behalf of my Barbin. They be kind folk, do nothing more than worship the sun and live simple lives, and they were attacked by some Scotsman and his band. We came all this way to ask they be sent some protection. They got some help we found along the way now, but from what we saw, there be more happening in those wilds than one village can bear." She puts her hands on her hips and fixes her gaze on King Richard.

"Hmm." The King considers what she's said. "I commend your dedication. However I cannot send help." He answers and it looks like Anne is about to explode but he raises his hand in a calming manner. "I would, but I cannot as the forests of the Barbin are outside the borders of Gatecia. Such a gesture could be misconstrued as an attempt to...take over new lands. Which could spoil one of our oldest and strongest treaties." He gestures at Chize. "It is possible, in fact highly probable, Lady Chize could use her influence to extend aid to your Barbin. And for your assistance today, I am willing to offer financial assistance to make that possible." He asks of Chize. "Is that possible?"

With a soft snort Niji takes a little trot backwards as the little birds suddenly impede on her territory. She lets out a soft indignant whinny, and the birds glance up at her… and then goes back to the foraging of what rightly is her food. Even if she wasn’t actually going to eat it, it was still hers! She bobs her snout up when the King Richard gives her one more pat, and as he moves away she does also. Her body turns and she trots towards the outer edge of the crowd, her dark eyes still in the direction of the Strangers and Royals.

When Anne announces that she is next to speak, Yuzuki almost perfectly mimics Leonidas’ eye roll. She sighs so discretely and now moves closer to Anne as she addresses the King. She really hopes Anne is halfway respectful of the King, even if her patience is stretched very thin at this point. And hen Anne tells her tale, Yuzuki feels the need to add what she knows. Maybe it would further help Anne get what she is requesting. Or at least make it seem more authentic, maybe offering a calmer tone at the same time.

“If we had not happened to be there, the whole village would have been murdered. The men, women and children. There were 11 attackers in all I believe. The leader she speaks of was named Wallace. I executed him myself. And”
She reaches towards her neck and pulls her medallion up for them to see “I took his understanding stone” she doesn’t know the actual name for it… but it’s a stone and lets people understand her “as my trophy." She replaces the medallion upon her neck as the King speaks… as Anne’s head almost explodes right there on the spot.

Yuzuki leans in closer to Anne and whispers after the King’s explanation “Most would see a Gatecia military envoy as an invading force into the forests…” She does wish she, herself, could do more to help the Barbin. Or any other of those that were victimized by Wallace or any of his compatriots.

Chize had also moved closer to Anne and the King, hearing her speak of one of the villages. Her ears are perked up as she listens to what Anne and Yuzuki says. When she is addressed, her ears flick a few times as she speaks. “The Council had received word of the attack.” She looks to King Richard a moment as she continues. “It was one of the outlying villages, one of the fisheries. They have no real defenses to speak of… so…” now her gaze moves to Anne “I would like to personally thank you for the lives saved that day. Those of the village spoke of you with love and admiration. Now as for what now…” her ears dip back a little as she thinks, her arms folding behind her back. “I shall consult Osgarika. She can get into contact with some of the travelling Veda caravans. Perhaps” she glances towards the King “with proper compensation and incentive, the Veda can act as guardians of the forests… of the Barbin there left defenseless. It would perhaps give the Veda something of a purpose, and they are widespread...”

Grimm simply gives the king a half-coherent grunt as his search for meat fails. While everyone is talking Grimm wanders away from the table and watches the colorful birds enjoy their meal. Unfortunately the booze fruit seems to hit hard and fast. Grimm quickly goes from pleasingly buzzed to dizzy and nauseous. Staggering his way over to some well trimmed bushes, Grimm groans in discomfort as he lowers himself to the ground. "Oohh my head...why is...urrp...everything spinning?" Crawling into the comforting shade of the shrubbery, Grimm lies down and pulls his fur hood over his head in an attempt to block out the nausea. Of course this does not leave a good impression for anyone with higher standards of etiquette. Letting out the occasional belch, Grimm let's his legs splay out from underneath the bushes as he rests.

Ben was momentarily concerned when the King told Anne they can’t help her people. But fortunately he explained why and instead had Chize give support. Hope, they keep their word to her. Like General MacArthur did for my people when he finally returned to us. He thought remembering how much that promise meant when it was fulfilled.

Realizing the Royals actually want him and Richard explain the council’s plan Benjie briefly closed his eyes. No rest for the weary. Placing the guitar down the guerrilla fighter pushed himself up and walked in front of the others to make sure they can see him. In the back of his mind, Ben couldn’t help but feel a bit of similarity here to the briefings he had attended before missions during the last war. Clearing his throat, the sergeant began.

“The council is secretly assembling a team of warriors, agents and trackers. It’s purpose is to hunt down Hitler and his allies or the very least sabotage their efforts.” Pointing to the English explorer, he continued. “Sir Burton and I have volunteered to join this team. Officially we’ve be the team’s advisors, but our role will involve combat, make no mistake.”

Benjie made sure to look at every other stranger present in the eyes even the samurai. He waited long enough for them to take in those words then resume.

“No one else is to know of this mission, not even the Red Shield or the White Guard. If anyone wishes to join us step forward but understand there is no going back from it. The enemy is both powerful and brutal, as we all are now aware of and who knows what else awaits in the journey ahead. Think carefully before you decide.” Finally the Islander fell silent, letting Richard Burton speak if he had anything to add.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Burton steps forward from were he had been listening.

"None of us have been here long I think, a few days at most, some less than that. The situation here seems to be more complicated than you might think. Thus the need for secrecy. It doesn't help that our enemy is said to have a strong, charismatic presence and magical abilities in addition. It might well be that there are allies of his in a lot of places that you wouldn't suspect. "

Burton speaks with a very faint English accent. For those who can ready body language, he seems to be in earnest.

" Personally I am doing this because I feel this is the right thing to do. I had a long life during the places and period on our world. Few times did I do things for the right reasons. I intend to take a bite out of this man's plans If I can. For those of you who don't know me, I was born the year of our lord 1821 and the last year I remember was 1890. I was a soldier, a translator, a person who studies men, and religions and cultures. I can fight with rifles, pistols, knives or swords. I am comfortable in the wild and civilization equally well. I speak near 30 languages and another 18 dialects. I have studied a half dozen religions some of which to a point where I understand them as well as most of their natural born practitioners. I ended my career as an author of six or seven dozen books and a diplomat for her Majesty Queen Victoria. "

"There are people in this place who hate us strangers, simply don't approve, don't care, generally approve of us and believe we are the gift of the gods the follow. This world will be a worse place if our enemy wins, it's simple as that. "

"Thank you for putting up with a diplomat's long boring speech. "

The Great Houdini

Harry steps up. He is considerably shorter than Burton, who stands around 6'2" He is middle aged but in good physical shape & is about 5'6". He is dressed in a fancy tuxedo that shows the wear of the day he's been through. It was never meant for much action or movement.

" I don't know much about this place or these people. I was never a scholar really. I was during my life, an entertainer. I was for my time extremely successful. I married the love of my life and I miss her dearly right now. My birth name was Erich. I was born in Hungary. My family moved to Wisconsin when I was very young and later to Milwaukee. There were several of us kids and my family was not very successful. I took lots of little jobs to help out. At the age of 9 I worked in the Circus on the trapeze. I was a long distance cross country running champion and ran for my health regularly. I became a stage magician, someone who does tricks on a stage to entertain people. I took the name Harry as my folks used to call me Ehry for Eric. "

" I have told people, I am not much for guns or knives. I might be able to toss a punch but I am far from a warrior. I spent a lot of time traveling. I like to think of myself as a decent fellow. I liked doing things, I learned how to fly airplanes. I built most of the parts of my better shows. I am a studier, a worker. For a while I went about trying to expose fraudulent phony psychics."

"When I was working on Mister Dean, I could see the spell put on him, looked rather like smoke to me. I really only tried that because my friend Benjie thought I might have some sort of ability in that regard. "

" A couple of things occurred to me, that have bothered me a little. I don't mean to speak ill of anyone mind you.. But as I said... I study things and people. The older noble who came in on the .. griffons ? I noticed he reacted poorly to the Unicorn. From the stories I remember, Unicorns prefer people who are noble of spirit.... Another oddity, the fellow who leads the red people, when he was told what I did with Dean, looked at me rather like a poorly played villain in a stage play rubbing his chin as if he had discovered a fine new weapon. "

"I trust Benjie, I trust Anne, I trust King Leonidas. I can't promise you that I will be completely useful mind you. But I can promise you that you'll have my best effort. That and I don't think I want to be left behind. I don't think people around here will care much about an old guy doing a stage act. "

While everyone speaks, a few of the birds see Grimm lie down on the ground, and flock over to investigate this new pile in their garden. A couple fly over to perch on Niji's back, and inspect her for any parasites. One green bird flies to Anne and rests on her right shoulder as the woman listens paying it no mind, and it does not mind her slight sway.

The woman smiles as Chize tells her the Barbin speak of her in a loving manner, and holds her head high as it is explained in so many words that she is now successful in securing protection for her village. While she is unaware of who this Osgarika is, or what a Veda is, she feels confident these are people of their word. They seem too legitimate to deceive her. That could be the booze talking, but it is what she feels nonetheless. The pirate's mind wanders for a moment about how to negotiate for a ride back to the village, but is brought back by the words of Benjie illuminating everyone on what had come of their meeting with that council.

Leonidas pours himself a cup of ale while he listens, and leans back on the table taking sips. Dean likewise leans back on the bench he's sitting in and knows this is how he'll be utilized. Which is all fine and dandy for him, and he is the first to speak up when the floor opens to responses.

"While I know I have no choice in the matter, I want you all to know I also have no qualms about being part of this." He looks around and even cracks a smile. "I just hope I get a chance to knock off old Adolf myself. Teach him to make me a puppet."

"Aye!" Anne exclaims, bumping her fists together. The bird has since closed its eyes and looks to be sleeping even with her movement and raised voice. " I was gonna ask fer a ride back to my village. But if they be in safe hands, and this Hitler out there with Albert in his camp, I think it best I put my strength on him the same he tried to put his on my people." She puts her hands down. "So count me in, Captain!" She says to Benji. She looks aside at Yuzuki "How bout you Zuki? I'll help ya with that other Oriental fellow what gave ya trouble last time. If ya rather stay here, I'll bring his head back."

King Richard, and Queen Gweyr look at each other when Houdini expresses concern about Count Orlock and Overseer Germaine.

"Count Orlock? There must be some misunderstanding." King Richard says looking at Niji and then Houdini "Count Orlock is my most trusted advisor, and a man of the people."

"And Overseer Germaine, while he can be shrewd, I am sure meant nothing untoward by his...peculiar reaction to your power." Queen Gweyr says in defense of the other man. "I am certain that was just a matter of his curiosity as to how your power works. It is an essential part of the Red Shield Guild, after all, to be curious and determined."

Leonidas is the last to speak of the Strangers. He finishes his drink, looks around.

"You have been a good friend, Burton, in this short time I have known you." He sighs and shakes his head. "This is not my battle." He looks off in the direction of the courtyard where Genessa said she would be waiting. "I would prefer to stay by Genessa of Red's side. The two men you, Houdini, said concerned you are her father and superior. I think this old man is better as her shield than your foot soldier for now."

Niji’s tail only flicks as the birds land upon her strong back, her head raising a moment. Her head then bows as she sniffs for more food, which has been placed right there for her. But at this moment, it isn’t food that really gets the sum of her focus. Her ears perk up as she hears Grimm’s belch.. well one of them.. and with a soft snorting sound she moves towards the bush he has decided to share with the little birds. That’s nice of them, to share their spot with the oddly scented man. Niji would look back in the direction of the group as they speak amongst themselves, and she notices her human (Yuzuki) only glancing in her direction every once in a while. Whatever they’re talking about, it must be very very important for the 2 legged furless ones to not pay more attention to the unicorn. So Niji paces slowly towards Grimm’s resting place and lowers herself down caaaaaarefully, not wanting to further disturb the birds there. It’s there territory, and she goes slowly, not wanting to offend any of them further. She even makes eye contact with each bird, her ears flicking, as if in silent communication with them. As if using their own special language, Niji asking permission to stay there with them for a while. So in the grass she lays, her front hooves partially folded under her body, the bush barely brushing against her side. Every few moments she leans her head forward, sniffing at Grimm’s boots and lower legs. But she also minds the little birds, which she considers now her friends. Because… who doesn’t want to be friends with the unicorn?

Yuzuki just stares at Anne nearly this whole time, more specifically the bird upon her shoulder. A bird Anne doesn’t even seem to notice. It’s almost a bit comical to the Japanese woman, a small grin upon her lips as she watches the bird spread its wings just a little to help keep its balance.

And as Benjie starts to speak, her attention is drawn to him. The tone of his voice.. it speaks of a serious nature. She seems surprised to hear the plan… the ‘secret’ group. It’s been a long time since she was part of such a group. The last one she was in, they went to meet the warriors of a rival clan and kill them. She enjoyed it, working with others with just as much (if not more) skill than she had. But this.. mission… it is very different, isn’t it? None of them are samurai… none of them really seem to have a code (that Yuzuki recognizes)… and those they go after are even more different. Using futuristic weapons… and magic…

Burton then steps up and speaks… and Yuzuki finds herself a little lost with all of the words he uses. He is obviously very intelligent, far more intelligent than she. But 1821.. so far in the future… she can hardly imagine what kind of world his is. But she could say the same for any of those around her. She’s hardly ever been beyond the bounds of her own clan’s borders, much less around the world. She can’t even imagine what she would find beyond the ocean.

Her eyes are now cast down as Harry speaks, and then the others. Anne is very excitable, but Yuzuki keeps her gaze cast down. Seeming lost in her own thoughts, her hands resting upon the sash bound around her waist. And as Leonidas falls silent, there is a moment of silence, and then Yuzuki’s soft and calmed voice comes forth. She still looks down, lockes of straight hair framing her features. “Thank you, Anne… but I must face him myself, regain my honor. I must also deal with Albert.” She looks towards Benjie “You may object to my very presence for your mission, but I must accompany you. I’ve much experience with this kind of thing. I will be of benefit to you.” She looks towards the other Strangers, even Dean. “I will do everything I can to be of use to you all.”

Overhearing the conversation, Grimm experiences a brief moment of clarity. "I have..urp...sworn allegience to Genessa of Red! I go where...oourgg...she goes!" His voice slightly muffled from the shrubbery, Grimm waves a hand about to show he means business but soon returns to wallowing in drunken self pity. Trying not to throw up, Grimm looks down his body to see several colorful birds perched on him. "This place may not be so bad..." The bearded hunter mostly mumbles to himself, feeling a little bit better that at least the local animals seem to like him. Making sure not to disturb the birds, Grimm lets his head drop back into his hood and let's out a long yawn.

Honestly, Ben had not expected Harry of all people to volunteer for this dangerous mission. Granted he had not known the escape artist for very long but the fellow wasn’t exactly one would call a soldier or warrior. Then again Houdini had an ability that can come quite handy in a pinch and courage to match it. We have to keep him safe and find other means he can help as well. Benjie quietly decided before listening to the others.

As for Anne Bonny, she was welcomed as far the guerrilla was concerned. A proven fighter and with motivation to match it. James Dean would be useful as well and maybe he’ll remember information about their common enemy along the way. Benjie nodded in acknowledgment accepting their willingness, but he bit his lip when Yuzuki stepped up, declaring her intention to go as well. Ben frustratedly squeezed his right hand into a fist.

Guess it was too much to hope for that she chooses to protect the royal family instead.

Yuzuki had fought to beside him on two different occasions with great skills and did helping others not Japanese. Even so Ben in his heart still found it hard to stomach being in the samurai’s company. While the others like Grimm and Leonidas declined for their own reasons, the sergeant let out a weary sigh and said. “It is settled then.” Turning to the warrior woman he added.

“I don’t understand why you would want to fight that Imperial officer but that’s your business. Make no mistake though, if given the opportunity I won’t hesitate to kill the bastard first and others like him.”

Anyone paying slow attention to that last part would note the utter contempt within Benjie’s voice when referring to the Japanese army officer with Hitler. Anyone with common sense and sharp eye would realize this is more than a mission to him it was personal. Done the resistance veteran turned focus toward the royal family waiting for their respond.

The Great Houdini

Harry listened to the Royal couple defend the two men. He turns to her Majesty bowing his head to her.

"Your pardon Majesties. You might be right about the red cloak. Perhaps here in this place a man in such a position might well be innocent and forthright to his friends and allies. I just felt for that brief moment very uncertain of his motives. Likely just my own culture and upbringing. I apologize for an possible unintended slight"

He turns very briefly to Leonidas now..

"As for the other fellow Orlock, of that I am more certain of what I saw. He reacted with a great deal of unease to the Unicorn and she to him. With the quality and quantity of our enemies, I would be cautious."

He looks at the legendary King of Sparta for only a moment more, certain he saw Leonidas react to Orlock as well, but he cant be certain.

Having heard Benjie's passionate little speach, Harry goes to stand by the sergeant.

"Take a deep breath Sergeant, it's going to be just the beginning of a long journey I think!.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Burton leans a little close to Anne.

"Would you consider Madam, making an honorable peace with this all too wordy old brit who can claim some Irish on his mother's side and a head full of red hair as a baby?"

Then, while the others are talking, Burton makes his way to Leonidas. Talking to the other man in low tones in Greek.

"I am glad you return to Genessa my friend. My own instincts tell me to trust you completely. I think highly of young Genessa and I noticed your expression upon meeting her father. This world seems thick with uncertanties and subtle twisty allegiances. I think your sword will see action sooner than you would like. "

Burton extends his hand for a grasp with a small note addressed to Genessa that will slip into the Spartan's leathery hand.

He moves next to Dean.

"Mister Dean?, my congratulations on being relieved of his influence. We met once you and I, outside Doren a couple of days back. You ran by and captured a woman and ran off. I want you to know, I will hold you to a clean slate. "

Burton says nothing more to Dean. The implication and body language promise harsh retribution should the American prove false.

He moves then to Yuzuki, the young Japanese woman. He gives her a short bow, eyes not leaving hers.

"Lady Yuzuki, I must tell you my regrets at having spent so little time in what my people call the Orient. I would ask you fpr a favor. Could you perhaps help me refresh my skill with the blade. It has probably been over a decade since I regularly used a my sword. Though, in my youth I was well known for my skill as a fencer. "
