The Crimson Thief (Astral)

Post by Nomad on Thu Jan 09, 2014 5:58 am

Shifting his gaze slowly, Hunter scans the area in front of him, the brim of his hat keeping part of his face covered in shadow though he could see perfectly fine what was before him. " Hmmm... " He murmurs lightly to himself as he scans the area in front of him a moment longer before he shifts his gaze, glancing down to the piece of paper he had, a wanted poster. Looking at the poster he scans over the drawing of the paper, the person he was searching for, though it was just a drawing of her head as well as some details about her appearance. The person he was currently after was a woman that had long red hair and red eyes, two things that he knew would help him in his search though he still had to do the leg work and find her. He had been tracking this woman for a few days now through Anthropinos, most of which was simply asking around the merchants and local riffraff. Both of which he found paid off most of the time just as it did now as he found out about where the woman was staying as well as where she frequented. With this information, Hunter decided to wait at the tavern he was told she had been staying at, The Owl's Nest, a three story wooden and stone building not far from the merchant quarter. With it growing later in the day he had taken up a seat in the tavern and sat, waiting to see if the woman he had been hunting either came in or came down from the stairs. While waiting he pondered how to go about this as he did not know what she was capable of doing given the wanted poster did not have much information about her but since it was a woman he figured it wouldn't be to hard to catch her.

Saphira spent most of her day looking around the city. Specifically she was looking at people's professions. Such as black smiths, tailors and what not. From what she had seen it didn't have anything Dragconis didn't have. In fact Dragconis had more than this place. She decided that today was her last day in this city. She wasn't going to travel an night though so she headed back to the inn. Heading in the the door Saphira made her way to the stairs.

As he shifts his gaze slowly he takes a sip from the mug of water he had asked for, since he had yet to find the woman he has been looking for he held off on food not wanting to start a meal and have to get up and leave to go after her. With the sound of the door shutting Hunter turns his gaze, his eyes coming to rest upon a red haired woman as she moved towards the stairs. Though he was not sure if this was the woman he is after he knew he couldn't over look her. With a light sigh he sets the mug down and grabs his crossbow before raising to his feet and slowly following after her though not making it obvious that he had started to follow after her. Though he had found her he was not sure which room she was staying in, however he had yet to come up with how he was going to go about catching her. He knew he could try and catch her now though that may make a scene and cause trouble. Rather he was hoping to avoid such things and catch her somewhere more secluded.

Saphira moved up the stairs and headed for the room she rented. Saphira had grown up in Sklira and her hears were tuned to pick up the slightest sound in case it was a native about to pounce. Because of that Saphira heard someone was following behind her. After rounding the corner at the top of the stairs Saphira casually leaned against the wall. Hunter wouldn't see her till her rounded the corner himself. If he walked past her then she had nothing to worry about if he turns around then he was probably following her. If he sticks around to chat then he was definitely following her. In any case Saphira was going to make sure she was prepared just in case.

Moving up the stairs after her, Hunter idly glanced to her from time to time. Though not completely sure this is the woman he has been after, he hoped that it might just be so he can get the reward that is on her head. Trying to to look as if he is following her he makes sure to remain a few paces behind her though he was unaware of the fact she was already onto him. He watches her as she rounds a corner though he continues at his pace, not moving to round the corner quicker since he did not want to appear as if he was following her. He was not expecting her to be against the wall as he rounds the corner. With her against the wall he glances to her, giving a faint nod " Evening. " He murmurs lightly as he glances at her, getting a look at her eyes, seeing that they where red. Though he had more of a confirmation that this was the woman he has been after he does not stop in his stride, his gaze shifting from her after the greeting. Looking back ahead he continues to move down the hall.

Rounding the corner he nodded to her and gave a customary greeting before continuing on. With him walking off not looking back Saphira was more at ease. She couldn't believe how easily she got paranoid. Saphira then continued to her room glancing at the man to see if he was watching before walking in. The door creaked as it opened up and she entered her room. "So much for a sneaky entrance" Saphira thought to herself before closing the door and sitting on the bed. Pulling out the small or Saphira picked up she held it in her hands examining it. She could feel the magic radiating off of it. She wonder what it was meant for or if it was just meant to store magic away. There was a spell on it to allow anyone to harvest the magic from it but without earth magic Saphira couldn't put energy in it.

Now that he found the woman he has been looking for he just had to come up with how he was going to catch her, which he hoped would be an easy task. Moving forwards at a steady pace he keeps his gaze set a head of him for a few steps before he turns to one of the doors. Acting as if it was the door to his room, he gives a quick glance to his side, looking to see what door she was going into as he begins to pat himself own as if looking for the key to his room " Don't tell me I forgot it.. " he murmurs lightly, acting as if he had forgotten his key. After glancing back down the hall to see what room she had went into he turns his gaze back to the door before him while patting his pockets still. He was not sure if she was on to him being after her though he tried to seem like he was not. Once she had went into her room he makes his way back down the hall, coming to a stop in front of the door she had went into. For a moment he stood looking at the door before he reaches out and taps on the door a few times before letting his hand fall back to his side, waiting for a response.

Having heard a few taps on the door Saphira sets down the orb on her bed and gets up to head for the door. She wondered who it could possibly be. Her first guess was the inn keeper or maybe a maid doing a round of cleaning. Reaching the door Saphira opens it to see the guy from only a few moments earlier. "Yesss?" Saphira asked wondering what business he had with her.

After knocking on the door he waits a moment, wondering if she would answer through the door or open the door before answering. Though he was not sure he thought know may be the best time to try and capture her, he had the bounty poster so hopefully he would not have any trouble should he capture her. As the door is opened he gazes in at the red haired woman for a brief moment as she spoke to him. Given that she had opened the door almost completely he found his entry much easier then having to force the door open more. Stepping forward with his gaze fixed on her he pulls his hand from inside his coat and tries to ease her back into the room as he steps forwards, not trying to hurt her though simply trying to get her into the room so he could shut the door behind him.

The man starts walking towards her and take his hand out extending it to her in a pushy like manner. Trying to keep her personal space Saphira walks back wards and the man shuts the door behind him. "What are you doing?" She asked getting a little nervous. She took his actions as threatening and Saphira did not take threats lightly. Spreading her legs for a firmer stance Saphira stops moving back and hold her ground. "I demand you leave right now or I'm going to have to hurt you." Saphira said before using her telekinesis to pull her sword out of its sheath and bring it to her hand from its place near the bed.

He managed to force her back as he was wanting to do and get the door shut, leaving them alone in the room. She had put some space between them and once he had the door shut he stopped advancing towards her and looked at her for a moment. As she draws the sword with her telekinesis he frowns faintly seeing that he will need to use his collar to prevent her from using her magic. " Please, put the sword down. I would rather not hurt you. " he says as he reaches into his coat and pulls out a collar. In his other hand he still had a hold of his crossbow and it was loaded. " Now, I want you to put this on. I am here to collect the bounty on your head and I would much rather take you in alive and unscathed if at all possible. " he says as he watches her though his gaze shifted as he glances over her body for a brief moment.

The man ignored her warning and instead said he didn't want to hurt her. He then said he was here to collect the bounty that was on her head. "What?" Saphira exclaimed. "Why is there a bounty on my head?" She asked. The cross bow he was holding was making her uneasy. Using her telekinesis Saphira slid the bold out of its positions and moved it so the point was nearly touching the mans neck. "You are going to answer my question and then you are going to leave." Saphira said to the man. He was lucky she was just using one bolt. She had dozens of daggers hidden underneath her clothing that she used specifically with her telekinesis.

Though he hoped to do this the easy way and get her to put the collar on, as he watches her things begin to go down hill quickly. As she removes the bolt form his crossbow and brings it up to his neck he frowns faintly. He would definitely need to get the collar around her neck so she could not use her magic. She wanted him to leave though he was not about to do that, not when he had his mark right in front of him, he just needed to defuse the situation. " Here. " he says as he lets his crossbow fall to the floor before he reaches into his coat and pulls out the wanted poster he had for her. Pulling the folded wanted poster out of his pocket he offers it to her. While offering her the poster he starts to use the magical pendent on his person, a magic that would start to calm her down and make her more complaint with him.

Saphira began to calm down as soon as the man dropped his crossbow. He then pulled out a wanted poster from from his person and extended it to her. Pulling the bolt away and dropping it next to the crossbow while she grabbed the poster from his hand. Her sword still extended she began reading it. It didn't say what she had done and it didn't give a very good description of her either. Just red hair and red eyes. That alone was enough to know it was her though. Never in Saphira's life had she seen anyone with the same hair and eyes she had.

After reading the paper Saphira crumpled it up and tossed it aside. "Alright you can leave now." She said in a calm tone.

As the bolt fell to the floor he let out a soft sigh of relief though he knew he was not out of the woods just yet. Once she took the wanted poster from him he let his hand fall back to his side and watched her as she looked it over.

For the moment he held his ground as she looked over the poster. She still had her sword which was a problem. As she spoke again he lets out another soft sigh knowing he was not going to simply leave. " I'm afraid I cannot do that. " he says as he slowly takes a step forwards, the calming magic was still in effect as he stepped forwards.

" I need you to put this on. " he says, still holding the collar out for her. He hoped she would put it on of her own free will, other wise he would have to get it onto her by force. Now that he had dropped his crossbow he made no move to go for one of his other weapons, instead hoping that she would comply with his command.

After saying he wasn't going to leave and instead stepped forward Saphira would have normally stuck her sword to his neck and forced him out, but his calming magic was keeping her from doing that. Instead she just kept her sword pointed forward struggling to figure out how to get rid of him. She could only move with her telekinesis as much as she could with her own strength which meant she couldn't simply just push him out. Saphira was in a stale made and didn't know what to do. "I'm not putting that on and I'm not going with you." She said.

Stepping closer to her he seen that she did not try and strike at him with her sword, instead she simply held it at the ready. Though he tried to get her to put the collar on again she refused to do so which meant he was going to have to put it on her instead. " I see.. " he says with a light grumble. He had hoped she would comply with ease. With his gaze fixed on her he reaches into his coat and grips the hilt of a short sword before quickly drawing it from hits sheath. Drawing the short sword he brings it up and uses it to parry the sword she wielded, trying to knock it aside. As he tries to knock the sword aside he flicks the collar open and shifts forwards trying to lock it around her neck.

When Hunter pulled out his sword and brushed Saphira's sword out of the way she drew it back however she wasn't able to do it fast enough to prevent Hunter from placing the collar on her. With her crystal and the collar Saphira couldn't use her telekinesis at all. Normally she would have gone into a rage but that stupid calming magic prevented that. Saphira dropped her sword and used both her hands to try and force the collar of but the no avail. Saphira's eye widened in fear of what he was going to do with her. She quickly darted around him and tried to escape.

Though he was not sure if he would succeed in getting the collar on her when he hears it lock into place he knew things where going to get easier now that she could no longer use her magic. With the collar on her he takes a step back and watches her as she drops her sword before trying to pull the collar off, however he knew she would not be able to only he could remove it. Watching her closely he was ready for her to run, they always tried to run and escape. Expecting her to make a run for it as she runs for the door he leaps from the ground and tries to tackle her from behind and pin her to the ground below him.

Though she tried to escape Hunter intercepted her and pinned her to the ground. Saphira struggled to get free put it was no use. Saphira decided to switch to a new tactic. "You see that orb on the bed over there and the necklace I have on me. They are both magical artifacts each would sell for far more than. My bounty will give you. If that isn't enough I have a house in Sklira. collecting my bounty isn't worth it."

Having taken her to the ground he remains atop her for the moment, his gaze fixed on her now that she lay under him. Now that he had caught her he just had to get her out of here and on the road. As she makes mention of an orb on the bed he glances it for a moment before looking back to her. Now that he had caught her she was trying to bribe her way out of being turned in. Listening to her he lets out a soft sigh though she was putting up a good offer. " Yeah, I bet you would like that. Now do you know the bounty isn't worth it.. Maybe I have a reputation to uphold. " he says, his gaze shifting over her body for a moment before he raises up off of her and helps her stand up.

Her bribe didn't seem to work. Saphira was hoping he would have taken her necklace at the very least. Then she would be able to use her magic again. Her crystal though was stronger than his collar so she wondered if taking it off would make her magic go a little out of control. Hunter got off her and offered her a hand up and Saphira decided to accept it. Once up she had a new plan in mind. Slowly moving her hands up to her necklace she began speaking. "You know this necklace of mine can also be used to restrict magic." She said taking the necklace off. Her mother told her never to take it off but Saphira figured that this would be an ok time to do it. Once the necklace was off Saphira used her telekinesis to unsheathe all of her hidden daggers. Most of them she pointed at his neck some others she pointed at his arms and the rest she pointed at other weak spots on the human body. "Bet you didn't know I was that powerful." Saphira said as she twirled the crystal necklace around her finger. Something caught her eye though. All the drawers in the room were sliding open and slamming shut over and over again making quite a bit of racket. Saphira wasn't even worked up she was still calm from Hunters magic which scared her. She was so calm yet her magic was doing all this and she even had a magic restricting collar on. "Alright take this thing off before I get us killed."

When she took his hand, he helped her stand up before releasing his grasp on her hand. He keeps his gaze fixed on her now that she was on her feet, wondering if she would try anything else or if they can be on there way. Keeping his gaze fixed on her he watches as she reches up to her neckless. For a moment he thought she was going to try and use it as a bargaining chip but rather she makes a strange comment before removing the neckless. Narrowing his gaze as he looks at her, he was not sure why she would have a neckless that would restrict someones magic unless they were trying to suppress there true power. Shifting his gaze from her he glances to where he had dropped his crossbow before looking back to her as she spoke about him not knowing she was powerful. Looking back to her he notices the daggers as they float in the air, all around him it seemed like, all pointing at him in various areas. Seeing the daggers in the air, he catches a glimpse of the power she holds. Watching her closely he frowns now seeing he may have made a mistake though at the same time he could see why she would be wanted. There was no telling what she had done to get a bounty put on her head though he figured it had something to do with her power. Listening to her speak up about taking the collar off of her he lets out a soft sigh " How about instead you put yours back on so you don't do something you will regret later like killing the innocent... You honestly do not want to go there. " he says as he watches her closely, hearing the dresser drawers slam shut from her magic.

"I consider you anything but innocent." Saphira replied. Saphira didn't plan on killing the man but she was going to start hurting him if he didn't take off the collar soon. Saphira used her magic to press on of the daggers against his stomach. It was a light pressure just enough to avoid breaking his skin, but if he didn't cooperate soon she was going to have a look at what he had for breakfast. In the corner of her eye Saphira noticed her slightly out of control magic flung the sword she had dropped earlier into the ceiling. She was going to make this bounty hunter pay for the hole it would reveal if you were to pull it out.

As she spoke he frowned a bit more at her comment, though did not consider himself really an innocent. Feeling the dagger press against his stomach he glances down at it for a moment before lifting his gaze back to the woman before him. Given her magic he had lost control of the situation though he still did not want to give up the bounty. He noticed the sword fly into the ceiling above them and lets out a soft sigh knowing he had to get her magic under control or something bad was going to happen. " I was not talking about myself... I was speaking of the other people in this tavern. If you are truely so powerful you are putting their lives at risk. " he says as he watches her still, hoping that the thought of killing people in the tavern would help bring her under control " I did not take you for the type to kill the innocent, though if that is your think I'm sure their are children in the tavern so you could always start with them. " he says, knowing he may be pushing her though he wanted to get her under control.
