Though the war had seemingly come to a conclusion, there was a lingering inch in both Arthur and Ulric. When Arthur dreamed, his dreams seemed to turn sour. They couldn't remember how it had gone down in the end but they were left with some contentment. Still that itch persisted in the two of them. Arthur found himself arguing in bars more often and Ulric found himself choking many more people with tendrils... so they decided they needed to go somewhere where that sort of behavior would be tolerated... hell it might even be celebrated. They'd been to the Crescent Arena once before and so it wasn't too difficult to find again, but when they arrived, they did so as separate individuals. Ulric manifested completely and wore his own sword at his side while Arthur was... well Arthur. Ulric had begun to have complicated feelings about possessing Arthur given his recent choices. He knew the man had complicated feelings about Sintra but Ulric had been marked after the war and when he possessed Arthur... he felt the mark.

So they arrived to fight in the arena as separate men.
