Umbra



(OOC: Hello, I am that one you see on the things called Loki!  I'm very rusty, but I'd love to RP with anyone if you're willing to have me. :3)

Umbra'd been in Ba Sing Se for the better part of three months now, and she was afraid to say, she'd settled quite a bit.  After somehow nabbing a job at a middle ring home decor store, and renting out a room above a tea store across the street, she'd been living quite routinely and plainly.  She had the day off today though, and the stagnation that had been eating at her for weeks was finally pushing her to do something intuitive and dangerous.  She had spotted a man dragging a woman into an alleyway, and she was going to put a vicious stop to it.

The earth beneath her bent down, and her rage could be seen in the way her teeth were bared.  She launched herself, shooting up on a pillar of stone, and raced after the man.  Her feet pounded on a pavement, which felt soft to her earthbender feet despite how hard she was crashing through the street.  She was closing the gap at an incredible velocity.  Instantly, she could see his face, his sniveling terrified face, as the woman already lay unconscious on the ground.  And then his face was gone, and stone had taken its place.  There were now two passed out in the little sideway, and Umbra realized that anyone who showed up now might misconstrue the full story.  She checked that the woman was still alive, took the bag that the man had taken from her, and set it on the woman's body.  She then constructed a stone cage around the knocked out criminal.  She looked around to see if anyone was there, and wondered if she should call for help.

Cyrad guessed he had been in Ba Sing Se long enough to call it home, though he didn't often stay in the city for long periods of time he had an apartment that he paid for regularly and would return there whenever a job or journey was at it's end. He also had his earthbending teacher here so if any city would be his home it would be Ba Sing Se. Today though he had nothing to do so he was just wandering around from market to market just window shopping. He had just bought some ripe fruit to munch on when he saw a woman sprinting into a alley. It looked suspicious and his curiosity begged him to check it out. So he jogged up to the edge of the alley and peeked inside.

A woman who was obviously an earthbender was constructing a stone cage around a knocked out man, and standing over an unconscious body whose sex Cyrad couldn't discern. "Hey, you! Stop right there." He yelled as he turned down the alley and drew his sword. The problem was that the bender was a girl, Cyrad woudn't be able to fight her with full might but he should be able to arouse the attention of the authorities. He approached unaware of the good deed she had just done and would have actually congratulated otherwise.

Umbra



Just as Umbra was ready to find some guard to take the criminal away, her earlier fear was realized.  A man had seen her crash into the alley, and he seemed to think she'd done something wrong.  But he looked pretty rough, maybe he was a friend of the criminal.  When he pulled out his sword, Umbra did the same, holding her huge sword in one hand.  It would have been impossible is she wasn't metalbending most of the weight off of her muscles.

"Do you know how quickly I took out your friend here?  You've got no chance!" Umbra confidently snarled.  Something seemed off though, was this man missing an arm?  Her eyes darted from his face to his arm, and her angry demeanor melted into curiosity.  She quickly went back to her former vigor, however, and waited for the man to make a move.  She wasn't entirely sure he was actually going to harm her yet.

The girl pulled out a huge sword and held it in a single hand which made Cyrad feel like the small guy in the shower.  Either this girl was also a metalbender or she was much stronger than she looked.

"Do you know how quickly I took out your friend here?  You've got no chance!"She taunted Cyrad with, but instead of anger it filled him with confusion.  He didn't think he knew the guy in the cage or the person behind her for that matter but she didn't sound like a normal thug.

"Wait before we start something I might regret, you are like robbing or murdering these people right because I'm the good doer here."  Cyrad said as his stance shifted slightly into a less aggressive manor, he might have messed up here and started a fight for nothing.  Earthbenders have been known to fight over less slights than a man approaching you with a weapon drawn, maybe he had been working to much and started to think everyone was a bad guy.

Umbra



Umbra had been sizing up the man, when he confusingly said, "Wait before we start something I might regret, you are like robbing or murdering these people right because I'm the good doer here." She briefly lowered her sword, and replied, "Well I guess we both decided to follow suspicious strangers into an alleyway." She put her sword away completely, assuming that this guy wasn't lying because he seemed just as confused as she felt. "This guy grabbed this woman, so I had to stop him." She began walking forward, and continued, "Have you seen any guards, might be awkward for them to both wake up like this,"

She turned her head back around, and realized the woman was already stirring. Great, now another person would think she was the bad guy. Then again, this dude next to her looked a lot more imposing. His frame was far more built than Umbra, but her inflated confidence made her believe he wasn't all that much bigger than her. Continuing to look at the woman, a large bruise was forming on her right temple where the caged man must've smacked her over the head. She'd probably need to go to the hospital, but if no guards could be found, they'd have to carry her or something. "What should we do about these two?"

"Well I guess we both decided to follow suspicious strangers into an alleyway. This guy grabbed this woman, so I had to stop him. Have you seen any guards?" The girl said once she realized Cyrad meant her no ill will, she sheathed her huge blade, which he mimiced, and started to walk to him. "Might be awkward for them to both wake up like this." She said then looked over her shoulder and Cyrad noticed the person who was blocked from his view was a woman.

"You should check on her and make sure she's ok I'll go flag someone down." Cyrad jogged off into the street and caught the attention of a guard walking by and brought him into the alley explaining his story and directing him to Umbra to hear the entire tale. The guard took the man away and had the woman accompany him to have her checked up on. That left Cyrad and the savior girl in the alley alone. "I'm Cyrad it's good to meet you, can I buy you a drink in reward for saving the girl?"

"What a waste of sewage water" thought Senpak to himself. He was most displeased by the quality of the establishment he was currently gracing with his patronage. Could anyone ever have concocted a more horrifying mix of leafs and variations of taste. The tea-leafs had clearly gone stale, the water hadn't been boiled properly and by the looks of it, not in a very clean tea-pot either. Was that a hair he saw? This was just unacceptable. The young butler was contemplating whether he ought to ask for the chef or the pig who obviously made this. Senpak was most displeased and it took him a lot of efford not to show it. Gentlemen never showed any emotion other than kindness or total absence of emotions. Off course a gentleman was allowed to express his disdain, but with an air of selfrestraint. The young butler couldn't garantee that he wouldn't strangle the deviant who had made him taste this broth from hell.

In order to not show on his face how cruelly his tastebuds had been treated he took out his mask and put it on. At least that way he also wouldn't be tempted to try another sip. With much reluctance he put a coin on the table to pay for it. Eventhough they hardly deserved it, they probably needed it more than him. Infact, based on the quality of the tea here, the owners of this abomination...pardon...establishment would need a lot more.

Senpak decided to stay a little while longer, he had paid for it anyways. The young butler took out of his backpack a map of the city. Where was he going to next? The relentless propoganda and tourist-advices had made him somewhat warry of cultural hotspots. Instead he was looking for the more humble icons in the city, possibly close to a community centre so the young butler could check if for work as well. After a while he thought he had found a proper destination when a ruckuss at the bar demanded his attention. At the bar he saw three men. One was swinging a teapot above his head, another held a third person who seemed to be the owner by the collar. "I want my money back you slime" barked the first man. "Me and my buddy here were almost poisoned! You call that tea?" Glad that he hadn't been the only one, Senpak folded the map and decided to remain distant until he could decide whether he should join in on the complaints.

"I am very sorry gentle-mman" stammered the owner "It seems something has gone wrong, allow us to fix it for you." The poor man was carefully trying to pry himself free but the second costumer suddenly turned things violent. The second costumer was a tall man, bald with a simple moustache and wearing typical earth-kingdom clothes. His sleeve-less shirt suggested earth-bender, but you could never be entirely sure. The first costumer, the man swinging the teapot had long hair and was a lot slimmer compared to his compatriot, but nevertheless was just as intimidating. Out of nowhere the second costumer started kicking the owner around. First he threw him against the bar with force, then he grabbed him by the hair and pulled him across the bar before dropping the owner to the floor.

At this point Senpak had gotten up. "That is quite enough gentlemen, I see you have made your point." The two men turned to the stranger wearing a white mask. "And who in blazes are you supposed to be?" said the long haired costumer. "you don't seem to be from around here."

Senpak's right hand rested on his whip, just in case. "Who I am is of no concern to you. What I will do if you do not leave that man alone is another story". -"Oh, a tough guy ey, Umi, show him how we do things here in the earth kingdom". Umi being the taller costumer with the sleeveless shirt gave a dirty smile and nodded. "I oughta, don't I" he acknowledged and with a devious smile he took a step forward.

'Great' Senpak thought to himself.

After the criminal and the woman were taken away the man turned to Umbra and said, "I'm Cyrad it's good to meet you, can I buy you a drink in reward for saving the girl?" Was he hitting on her, or was he just being nice? Umbra was pretty bad at picking up hints, but even she had to wonder.

"Well I'm Umbra, and sure, that sounds nice." Umbra knew of a place that usually had decent tea nearby, and walked with Cyrad there. But when they walked in there appeared to be some kind of commotion. Umbra stood in the doorway, unsure of whether she should enter or not. She looked at her new companion wondering what they should do.

Umbra introduced herself and accepted Cyrad's invitation for a drink then walked a short distance to a place she said had some pretty decent tea. She stopped at the door though and when Cyrad looked over her shoulder he saw that a something was going on. Two men were standing next to each other across from a man wearing a mask, there was also someone on the floor.

"Excuse me," Cyrad said as he slid past to Umbra. Then spoke to the three who were obviously about to start something. "Hey guys listen, why don't we all settle down and talk this out like grown ups." It was sort of Cyrad's style to jump into business that he had no place in, at least when it would help out some poor sap like the guy on the ground who Cyrad was guessing the owner from his attire.

Cyrad shifted slightly so his stone arm was more visible as well as his placing a hand on his sword. He hoped that these guys were more the type that wanted the easy prey rather than getting into a serious fight, but he would be ready if they wanted it. His first goal would be to get them outside, he didn't want to mess up the shop and would like to be able to earthbend.

The two hooligans turned and looked at the strangers who just walked into the bar. Their bravado quickly evaporated as they saw the weapons wielded by them. "We were just about to leave, weren't we Umi?" The other one grunted in agreement and they both scurried away, leaving the bartender on the floor, soflty weeping.

Senpak relaxed and was glad nobody could have seen the relief on his face. His mask always made him come across slightly emotionless, and that was good if you were in such an environment. With a nod of acknowledgement he thanked the two and went back to his table.

Cyrad wasn't really thinking of this as a date so he went to sit at the man's table with Umbra in tow. He ordered himself a drink, and Umbra one as well paying for both of them. Could there be mixed signals being sent, Cyrad wasn't doing so intentionally.

"How'd that all start?"Cyrad said as he sat down. "I'm Cyrad by the way, and this is Umbra."

He listened to Senpak's story as he got his drink and ordered himself a plate of meat, asking Umbra if she wanted anything as well. "Funny that sort of thing would happen back to back, Umbra here just stopped some guy from assaulting a woman so I just came inside to buy her a drink." Cyrad was trying to be friendly and build his social circle which in recent years has been embarrassingly small.

The stranger and his compatriot seemed decent people and Senpak didnt mind the company at all. He smiled at Cyrad's question and remark.

"I wasn't paying attention at first, it seems they had some quarrel over payments, but it was unclear to me who was the creditor, and who was the one failing his payments." the butler said gravely. "I am inclined to believe it was a shake-down." he added", The two gentlemen obviously didn't take no for an answer". Taking another sip from his tea, Senpak's eyes wandered towards the door. Curious as to who the two men had been, and where they had gone off to. Putting down his cup, Senpak suggested; "we would have to ask the bartender though, if it is something you want to look into. I am not from around, so I have nothing to add. Chances are we would be overlooking some local political play without informing ourselves first."

Senpak's curiosity was awakened by the whole situation. Though he hardly was a detective, plots and violence weren't new to him. Ever since he left the inner circle of the Fire Nation capitol to find a new job, he had been fascinated to see the copious forms of violence in the world of commoners. As a butler, he had encountered many intrigues and assaults. But the nature of these conflicts was entirely different. Nobility preffered to resort to stealthy methods such as poison or staged accidents. Here in the world of the commoners it seemed a free for all. To get their ways, people used all sorts of methods, including the ones Senpak was familiar with. He felt like he needed to learn more about these people, so he could assist the next master he would have properly in dealing with more than just court-intrigues.

"That is... if you two are interested in looking into this more?"
