    The Goblin Language

    Seeing the posting for goblin lessons, Edward also looks to join in on learning the goblin language. The added bonus to possible gain some insight and learn the mind set of his fellow company members was also too good of an opportunity to pass up.

    A surprise visitor

    As Raz makes his way into the building, nodding off all the random solutes that are being flung at him by the rank and file members of the Sharp Tusk Tiger company, he pauses for a moment when he notices unusual gentlemen in the common room talking to Piet. As he looks over him a small level of dread and intrigued wash over him as he comes to recognize this individual as Halleron, made corporeal. This turn of events has Raz frozen and delighted with fear and wonder as being who could easily kill them all is simply sitting around tapping his fingers. As he manages to find his nerve and center again, Raz approaches Piet from behind, placing a hand on his friends shoulders he whispers "we need to keep everyone else out of here while we talk with him, that is if we want to keep them alive". At this point Raz takes a step forward and dropping to one knee says "it is an honor to see you again my king".

    Turning a new leaf

    With the recent revival of his friend August, Raz finds the concept of brewing and mixing potions and remedies to be a prudent practice. As such he goes forth to locate a master in the city of Ulmmarch and soon comes across a small halfling man named Thomas, who is quite adept at the craft, and is willing to teach Raz. He stresses that this art is a time consuming tedious one that requires a level of dedication and skill that is not for the faint of heart. Having conquer many similar challenges in his life, Raz eagerly accepts the trials that lay before him.

    Raz looks up at his friend a gives him a soft nod, letting all the new information he just gained about Sehrasa stew in his mind. There were so many things he still wanted to ask him about his life, and so much more he wanted to tell him. But for now he took some small level of comfort that his friend wasn't leaving right away. Following Sehrasa's example Raz also got up and proceeded to pat out the small wrinkles that had begun to form on his clothes. "In any case my friend I shall be needing a drink, can't quite decide between tea or brandy in regards to settling my mind". He claps his hands on the shoulders of Sehrasa briefly looking at this friend saying "I know you have you own life to get back to my friend, but please do me a favor" at this point Raz is looking his friend directly in the eyes "don't just rush out of here like that, I may not be wanting you to leave, and that may be contrary to your wishes, but at least give me the chance to send you off proper". And with that Raz gives his friend one last hug before leaving him in the drawing room, which is more like a library now, while he searches for tea, or possibly brandy.

    Raz and Angelique both accept the drinks graciously from the server in front of them, Angelique becoming somewhat giddy with the flattery being bestowed upon her Raz. Her fiance on the other hand was internally quite cross by how forward this man was toward his fiancee. While he understood the social context of the 'gesture' that was made before him, Raz was a selfish creature that detested anyone touching that which he held dear without permission. It took a certain measure of self control to maintain his composure and simply sample the beverage that was handed to him with a simple, "thank you, the tailot business can be discussed later, but in the mean time I'll certainly enjoy this" taking a small sip from his glass before continuing. "I'm look forward to meeting our host I've heard many things about him and I'd like to separate fact from fiction". Taking a moment to look over the man in front of him and the nearest footman Raz could tell that he was the head servant. With that in mind he turns to Angelique and whispers "I'll be with you shortly to mingle with the other gusts, I'd like to have a word with Sehrasa first if you don't mind". When Angelique hears this she frowns for a moment thinking to herself 'what could he possibly want from his now of all time'. But she quickly pushes those thoughts to the side and gives Raz a little peck on the before replying in a similarly quite but seductive manner "you better find a way to make this up to me darling". And wth that begins heading in the direction of the other guests, leaving her fiance a little flush in the face in her wake. With a forced cough he composes himself and turns to the servant and asks him where he could find Sehrasa.

    The carriage ride to Daumantas's estate seemed like an eternity to Raz, as he sat next to Angelique he began nervously spun his ring around his finger. Seeing her fiance in distress Angelique take his hands into hers, gives a light kiss to the back of his hand and says "it's going to be okay darling, you've stared into the face of a full grown dragon and didn't blink, this should be a cake walk by comparison". While Raz nodded in understanding kissing her hand back in kind whisper "what would I do without you" to Angelique, internally he thought to himself that a room full of nobles was far more hazards. At least when you're fighting a dragon, you know where you're going to be potentially attacked from. The snide underhanded nature of high society was still something he had yet to master, though he was learning a great deal from examples made by Piet. As the the carriage came to a slow, it became quite clear that they were nearing their destination, as Raz looked out the window he noticed a small train of carriages slowly dropping off their passengers. The people who exited seemed like your typical sort of nobility, stuffy and full of themselves, it really made Raz wonder why in the world Angelique wanted to be involved with such snobs. But he promised he would try to make a good impression for her, given how she had been more than accommodating to hectic nature of Raz's work. As a result he had been subjugated to hours of shopping and tailoring in order for them to have the 'perfect' outfits for this engagement. All of this just to appease his fiance in her efforts to integrate themselves into the echelons of high society. Needless to say he would not have endured that for just anyone. As they made their way into the estate, they were quickly greeted by a valet.

    Raz slowly nods as his friend tells him all of this, as the pieces of the puzzle begin to snap together and make far more sense then they had previously. He was glad that Sehrasa had found someone to cherish, but it also made it plainly clear why his friend was in such turmoil. The thought of having a loved one anywhere near that hellhole known as the Lurching Pines had become was enough to make a man sick. It astounded Raz that his friend hadn't simply abandoned his duties to try and start a one man crusade to save Ross. Though thinking back to that public outcry of his in the barracks, it was clear that he had a move level head and approach to the situation. " That certainly is quite a burden to bear on your own Sehrasa" as Raz begins going into he pockets clearly looking for something, then says a short curse in primordial when it becomes clear that it's not on his person. Turning to his friend he begins saying "it's times like this that make me want to enjoy a bit of Toby to settle myself." he chuckles a little at this "but I keep forgetting I kicked the habit ten years ago when I got kicked out of the monastery" His somewhat jovial nature not belying the magnitude of his previous statement.

    Raz nods his head at this and simply says "that's more than fine, I should be able to pick it up without too much issue, especially given the break the company has given us after that lost job." He just stands there a moment smiling and thinking about what he's going to do with the downtime he's been given. Raz then remembers that he hasn't given payment yet and begins opening up his bag and beginning the arduous task of counting out coin. Before leaving Raz turns to Piet and quietly says "I've recently built a number of race tracks across Ulmmarch, I feel that you may know some interested parties that would love to get involved in some of the behind the scenes work" he lets the last few words hang in the air as he observes Piets expression.

    A home for a Wanderer

    Remembering himself, Raz lets go of the stand of hair and looks upon his friend as he stares at the floor. It had been some time since he had actually read about the final moments of his parents. How he blamed himself for the death of his parents, that his childish antics robbed them of their one means of escaping the bandits. The valiant but futile attempt to fight off the ambush. All these details crystal clear details, made real with a touch of a strand, a surreal process that was impossible to describe to one who had never practiced the craft. Raz takes a deep breath that can be felt around the room, and after looking up toward the ceiling releases a gust of air that causes any lose paper to go flying. With this he looks back at Sehrasa and begins to speak "my friend while our pasts seem incomparable to you, remember that no two stories are alike, and that it's their differences that give them meaning. While I do not relish some moments of my past, they helped shape me into the man you see before you. The pain of losing my family at so young an age made me treasure family, and because of that, the first time I saw my daughters I knew I had to be apart of their lives." Raz then places his back against the wall and slowly slumps to the floor. "our up bringing may be different Sehrasa, but don't begrudge yours just because my was less than ideal. It was because of that tragic incident that I ended up at a monastery of Aduela" He pauses his story for a moment to look at Sehrasa to see if any of this was reaching his friend.

    As Raz hears this his stance relaxes, as the weight of uncertainty is lifted from his shoulders. He then gives a slight nod to Sehrasa as takes in the words that his friend has said. "Before I ask anything about you there are a few things that I must tell you first". He begins running a hand through his hair woven with beads, as if looking for a specific stand in the chaos that was his mane. When he finally stopped and grasped on to a single stand he looks to Sehrasa and begins to say, "there was a time my name wasn't Raz Kahime, but Gale Shorewind" as he is speaking Raz's fingers are tracing along the beads and knots as if fingering through paragraphs on a page. "My parents were simple merchants that earned their coin by traversing Mawritania, trading goods along the way. We were always on the move, never truly calling any place but our wagon home" he chuckles for a moment as he says this, were it not for his unforeseen union with Angelique he might still feel such a thing was true. As he continued his tale Raz spoke of the tradition his parents taught him of weaving ones life story in their hair, so when they die and meet their ancestors they will be able to know their life's journey. He goes on explaining that it was mostly a record of things deemed important to the owner, and as such each story was vastly different depending on the "author". "It was the last thing they taught me before they were killed...." He trails off for a moment, as his fingers reach a rather crude and messy section of hair in comparison to the rest. They linger over it for a time as his face begins contouring in between anger and pain, making it plain that what ever was marked there was unpleasant to say the least.

    From the Ground up

    It has been a number of months since Raz first had the inclination to master the art of carpentry, so many things had happened. In any event with the successful completion of the mission sent out from the Aurian embassy, Raz and several other members of the fellowship where given a leave of absents as an additional reward to finding a resolution to the problem that plagued Gran Skyre. As such Raz would take this boon of downtime to learn this craft that had caught his attention so many months ago. For the next few weeks, Raz would be apprenticing under the tutelage of one of the builders that has seen to the additions to his estate, and had been more than willing to meet Raz's request to maintain the aesthetic of the property in the new expansions.

    As Raz hears the words "I've overstayed my welcome" the slight bit of crimson that was adorning his face quickly vanishes with a sudden feeling of dread. While it was true that Sehrasa had accomplished the task that Raz had dangled before him, as a means of endearing himself to his Tiefling friend. But now it began to dawned on Raz as to how much he had come to enjoy the company of his friend. What's more as he processed the rest of what Sehrasa said, it became quite clear that he had been neglecting to pierce the vial of questions that surrounded Sehrasa. What was the driving force that made him want to save the Lurching pines? What were the implications of having a true name? Where did he even hail from!? All these basic things that he should know about the man he claimed to be his friend momentarily brought Raz into turmoil, until he remembered something that he had wanted to discuss with Sehrasa after he was finished with the library. With this he raised his hand toward Sehrasa and simply uttered the words "please wait" as he slowly walked across the room toward his friend. Those few steps forward seemed to be the longest he had ever walked, as if weights has been strapped to his feet, and he could no longer feel the breath of creation. When Raz was close enough he tentatively placed one hand on the Tieflings shoulder. Slowly he began to speak his mind "Sehrasa....these past few months having you here they were a real treat to me" as he continues Raz begins to gain momentum and his words become more fluid "We've both never really spoke about our lives before the company, and I never really pried into your personal affairs as I believed that if I could not share such things with you it would be unfair to expect you to do so with me" He pauses for a moment as if he's looking for a specific word then just continues on with what he could think of. " That was a mistake, I should be more open with you about who I was, and I should have bothered to know what is troubling you in your personal life to cause you to become so passionate yet so distant Sehrasa" He goes quite for a short period become he starts speaking again."When I asked you to be my best man, at the time it was because you were the only person in Ulmmarch I could say was my friend' He begins to shift a bit on his feet looking at the ground for a moment before truly meeting Sehrasa's eyes. "But now that we've shared so many adventures together, had our backs to the walls together and fought as brothers for survival, I can honestly say I don't know what I do if I didn't have you in my life." Raz begins patting his pockets for a moment, and after a bit finds one that crinkles a bit upon touch. He then pulls out a piece of paper and unfolds it completely before handing it to Sehrasa. As the Tiefling begins looking over the document Raz continues to speak, "that was a project that I wanted to talk with you about when you finished with looking through my library. They are designs that my builder and I have been discussing for your own personal work space" He begins to trail off a bit near the end, and forcibly clears his throat as if to remove some blockage that wasn't really there. "I was hoping to bring it up to you....after I asked you to become a permanent resident of this house." He let the words hang in the air as he waited for Sehrasa's reply.

    Raz scratches his head for a minute a thinks about how he wants to phrase this. "Quite honestly I'm not particular when it comes to how it looks personal, it's going to be a gift to Verilio so I'm leaving most of the details up to you my friend. Quite honestly the reason I'm giving him such a grand gift is to solidify the foundation of my own house that is coming into it's own. He looks Piet in the eye when he says "I have you to thank for this opportunity Piet, without our business partnership I would have never been able to amount the capital needed to accomplish this." He extends a hand toward Piet at this point.
