~Tawny eyes fell upon the little thing that kept calling her Capher-kin. It was all Issabelle could do to keep from strangling the rodent. She clenched her jaw... if that thing blew her cover... a Slight growl played in her throat... aching to escape. Her hands, rested at her side, fingers clenching her clothing as she took a slow breath...~

I have naught a clue what your friend speaks of....

~she hissed slightly as she turned her eyes from Avour to Capher...~

But whatever it be... She is truely Mistaken... I know noone by the name of Capher... and I am quiet sure... She knows naught who... My Kin are....

~she licked her lips slowly as she watched the two... letting her hands slide behind her back, clenching tightly in annoyance...~

Hajarian looked from Avour, Issa, and Capher, noting Avour's comment on the similar "smell" of the two. He rubbed his chin with his hand, as he continued to feel the waves of power rolling from both. Similar waves of power. He spoke:

"It is more than just... smell.... that is similar about these two." he said, quietly, keeping his face low but retaining his crimson gaze to the three individuals.

Maybe their secret will be revealed to me shortly....

"Issa, I believe you misunderstand her. For some reason when she refers to each of us she adds "Kin" to our names, I do not understand why.

The mistory here is that there is now three of us that sence a simularity between you and Capher each in our own way I am sure. It would appear Avour has a rather good sence of smell and smell the simularity, I observe actions and nature vary well and in this way I sence the simularity, and now Haj sences it as well. I do believe there is something to this, it is too great a coincidence for it to be otherwise."

Terra looks to each person in the room in turn.

"This mistory must wait, for now finding Talia should be our priority as Capher has pointed out."

"Yes I agree.  Our first priority should be to find Talia.  I just hope she has not been captured."

Capher then looked out the rudder room's door, seeing no one, he took the lead to try and find Talia.

Talia stands at the top of the staircase and can't decide, what to do, a very rare situation in her normal life. She hears some dwarves running around the lower deck, but then it is suspiciously silent downstairs.

If I only knew, where they are! I don't want to go deeper in this ships belly, if it is not necessary!

Talia draws her dagger and goes silently and slowly down the stairs, not making a single noise.

Capher went down the passageway, pausing every few minutes, listening for sounds.  He heard nothing.  He continued across the passage way till he came to the stairs leading up to the next deck.  He stopped.  Motioning to Terra, whom he thought was behind him,  he whispered into her ear. "I think there is someone on the stairs, but my eyesight cannot see who it is. And the damn dwarves put out all of the lanterns.  Maybe since you are armed it would be best if you took the lead."

Terra does not hesitate in taking the lead, he dagger coming gracefully to the ready as she starts to creep cauciously up the stairs.

Something is suddenly down there, approaching. It is dark, and Talia coming from upstairs with at least a faint light in her back, can´t see anything. But unnamed senses tell her that she is not longer alone.

Who could this be? Are dwarves able to be this noiseless?

Talia stops, and her hand searches for some of her stones she carries with her sling. And throws them down so they may hit at the bottom of the stairs, either the one down there or at least the floor, making some noise away from her, and causing maybe a reaction.

Hajarian walked slowly behind the others as they made their way down the passageway, making no attempt at speach. It was dark, yes, and he was beginning to wonder why no one had asked him to provide a light source. He was a fire magi after all. A simple light was only but a novice's task.

His attention was drawn to the stairs as he heard a noise. Some solid objects crashing upon the bottom. He looked up towards the top, barely making out a shape with his elven eyes.

Capher gladly stepped aside to let Terra take the lead.  It never occured to him to ask Haj to make a light source.  His mind was too busy trying to sort out the puzzles and questions that had arisen; why did Terra think he had changed?  Who was Issa, and why did Avour act so strangely around her?  Who was Haj, and what was his purpose?  Surely Seyella has some interesting "bed fellows" in this group, but he usually could figure out why Seyella sent those she sent in his travels, but his mind, was not...

His thoughts were interrupted by some small stones that had suddenly been thrown down the stairs.  One of them hit his shoulder.  He winced in pain and then suddenly without reason he became enraged.  He shifted into a Chasm demon, roared and began stomping up the stairs.  His claws tore up the sides of the stairway.  He found a human female standing there, suddenly he stopped, he looked down at her.  His features contorted as if it were fighting itself, but it did not touch the human.  Then it spoke. "Talia?"   Then as suddenly as it had appeared, the demon disappeared and Capher stood there,a dumbfounded look upon his face.  He looked old, his face ashen, his eyes sunken in and dark circles beneath his face.  "Talia...how?" he asked.

Capher.

~Issabelle listened silently to their explainations about avour... it did not make her feel any better. She narrowed her eyes as they had turned their backs on her... And she followed them quietly. Temptation to destroy those who may figure out what she was, was strong... but she ignored it. Her eyes never left Capher... watching him...cautiously...trying to decipher anything that may link him to her...~

occ - did issa not notice Caphers change..?

Avour walking closely behind Terra like a shaddow started to smile as she could smell Talia closer, before she had a chance to say anything Terra had walked in front of Capher taking lead. She heard something passing through the air and then stood in fright as she saw Capher change form. Her eyes wide open when she realised that it was heading in the same direction as Talia's sent.

Giving out a slight yelp as she realised that the Capher-like creature was running towards Talia in an attacking way. Avour started after Capher, stopping dead in her tracks when the creature turned back in to Capher. With a cafeul glace towards Capher, Avour looked at Talie and threw her arms around her hugging her tightly. "Talia-kin!" She said excitedly. "Avour-kin having adventure!!!" She continued and kept hugging Talia about the chest.

**OOC I was planning on letting others React to the shift, before she did. I may need to judge her reaction on theirs... But I guess I could go ahead and react.

~Issabelles eyes glistened as she saw Capher... shift. She stepped back slightly, dumbfounded as to what she should think. He did it so freely.... she was unsure whether she should consider that stupid... or whether he knew what he was doing. Who was this man... Could he be her long lost brother..... She shook her head slightly in disbelief and turned to go back to her quarters before she did something stupid.~

Talia is stunned. That isn't the reaction she had anticipated when throwing the stones. A creature so terrible she had never expected to exist stamps up the stairs towards her.But before she realizes  her only way to escape - diving under its arms and just darting down the stairs in whatever she might await there, it couldn't be more terrifying than THAT - this creature calls here name , and shifts back to Capher. Talia knows about Caphers ability to shapeshift, he saved them from Bium this way, what was a very interesting episode, but she wouldn't have expected such a creature. And then she hears Caphers voice call her name. Still paralised she stands there and stares through the darkness as someone passes the figure before her and hugs her!
"Talia-kin!" this person says excitedly. "Avour-kin having adventure!!!"  
"Avour!" Talia replies, hugging her so tight, that  the poor girl must suffocate. "Oh my Avour, how glad I am to see you!"and adding laughing with a sigh:"How glad i am to feel you!"

"Oh, by the glare of Foiros, isn't there any light?"she asks in the darkness with a still slightly trembling voice.

Hajarian's crimson elven eyes widened as he clearly caught sight of Capher's shifting, and he immediantly muttered in exclamation: "Chasm demon!" He was stunned for a few moments... this Capher was more and more proving to the magi's suspicions. There are no others besides shapeshifting dragons that can shapeshift... besides other magi such as myself.... but there was no spell in that action.... could my hypothesis be true? Is this no man, but dragon? He slowly follwed up the stairs after Capher, never taking his eyes off the 'demon'. His doubts about the shift were totally dispelled as Capher shifted back to human form.

He stopped halfway up the stairs and looked straight up at the man, his eyebrows furrowing lightly. Your secret won't be a mystery for too much longer.... His thoughts were interupted as he heard a shout:

"Oh, by the glare of Foiros, isn't there any light?" It was Talia's voice. Hajarian titled his head down slightly with a grin on his face. Holding up his hand, palm up, he willed light unto the hand, causing it to light up with bright rays of radiance. Instantly, the stairways and nearest places were bathed in the light of his hand.

"As you command." the mage stated with a slight grin, his eyes peering up at Talia.
