Fate was too cruel sometimes. A young, innocent seeming girl, just entering what should have been the best years of her life, had been snatched away in a handful of terror-filled seconds by nothing more than the shock of a loud noise. There had been no time to call in professional help, and by a stroke of bad luck the only person around who'd tried to help her was Tio; a man so utterly useless at medicine he was literally had a bounty on his head for practicing it. The yludih grit his teeth in frustration and cast a silent curse at himself. This was the second time a young woman had died in his arms because he hadn't possessed the skill to save them.
He only became aware of the pale man who'd come to stand beside him when they spoke up, expressing a similar sentiment that the girl had been too young to die. "Aye, she didn't deserve this. Nobody does." He replied wistfully, keeping his gaze down on the poor victim. Yet when the pale man said his next sentence Tio's eyes shot up to look at him, a mixture of threat and disgust clear in his voice. "You aren't taking her anywhere creep! She's going back to her... family..."
His voice trailed off as Tio finally noticed that the world around him had frozen, and that a strange mist hung in the air. Slowly but surely the world around him was fading into a foggy void, with the exception of him, the pale man and four other people who'd been in the garden. One of them Tio realized looked familair; it was the very first person he'd briefly bumped into when he was sucked into that maze at the start of Vhalar, but the rest of them were all complete strangers. It was pretty clear at this point that something strange was happening here, something evil judging by all the darkness and fog. Was the creepy pale guy behind this? And more importantly could he have caused the disaster that'd killed this poor girl?
Two of the people he didn't recognize; a pair of women who could have been twins (they looked very similar, but with all the darkness and fog about Tio struggled to make out much of their features) asked him, the blonde boy and the other woman who they were and how they came here. The woman replied to them first, stating firmly that her name was Kirei and that she had no idea. From what Tio could make out she was a biqaj, and a very pretty one at that. Under better circumstances he'd probably have started hitting on her already, but the endless void of shadows and pair of dead bodies kind of spoiled the mood a little.
"I'm Tio. Tio Silver." He said after her, trying to sound more jovial than he was really feeling and not at all succeeding. This place and these three strange siblings set his nerves on edge, and as much as he wanted to he couldn't quite hide it. "I have no idea either, I just sort of get pulled into these kinds of things. Are the three of you responsible for what happened to this couple?"
