As the encounter progressed and wolves grew worn down. Guzen suddenly leaned forward. For second he locked himself in sprinter like position and then dashed with immense speed. In blink of an eye he was already behind the wolves which moment after fell onto ground Still breathing. Each of them in fact got stricken in a way which blocked out their carotid arteries immediately blacking out their consciousness but the move alone was as mechanic as if Guzen had done it hundred times over.

Straightening up once again his head tilted toward nearby trees.

"I'm afraid the show is over. Or perhaps is there something I may help with?" - his voice was calm but it was as intimidating as hearing voice of overprotective 'future father-in-law' for the first time.

Stepping forwards, Xorin lands on the ground next to the tree, making nearly no sound as he lands, putting the steel needles into his belt before studying the man. "I'm impressed, not many people would be able to notice me that quickly even when I'm not trying to hide." His eyes glide over the wolves before focusing back on the man. "I recon you're not from around here." His eyes narrow slightly as he opens his book near the mid pages.

As if trying to figure out situation Guzen did glimpse his conversation partner before replying. Seeing his clothes held a certain dose of refinement he did not any longer suspect him of being a bandit. Yet something seemed odd about this person.

"No I'm not"~he replied somewhat in polite tone~"It is only due to a set of ... certain circumstances that I've ended up here"

He glimpsed once again at the now lying unconscious dire wolves.

"It seems they're not numerous but they grew big and especially keen. Not until they were already in line of sight I've noticed them. Such thing means they've grown hunting for especially... perceptive prey"


With a somewhat serious expression Guzen once again turned toward Xorin.

"I apologize if my question comes as weird one but: are local forests known to host any unnatural or monstrous creatures?"

Xorin flips to the pages slowly while glancing over a few of his scribbled notes. "Why yes... the beasts in this forest are prone to be... unnatural..." He stops at a page and seems to compare something to the wolves laying on the ground.
"Hmm, they are a bit bigger than described... I need to report that..." He then quickly closes the book before returning his focus to the foreign man. Nodding a few times while looking at his swords. "Since you say that you are not from around here I should ask you a question, do the places Alastaire, Tartarus, Windohym or Belladonna sound familiar to you?" His eyes focused on the man.

Hearing those words Guzen seemed somewhat troubled. Sighing slightly he nodded his head.

"No sir. Neither of those places sounds familiar. I may probably assume being far from home"

In somewhat gallant yet oddly foreign way he faced straight in Xorin's direction and bowed slightly.

"I apologize for not introducing myself till now. My name is Ichikage Guzen and currently I'm" ~he stopped as if calculating his current position ~"a travelling craftsman... I guess"

Xorin shakes his hand as Guzen bows, having read about some foreign traditions he figured this must be one of them. "No need to be formal around me." Bringing his right palm to the center of his chest he bows slightly, a noble aura emanating from his entire being. "My name Xorin D'Ernum Lanzear, from Belladonna. Please if you would join me, I would love to hear about where you are from and about the crafts you delve in." Slightly turning his body, he moves his right hand to the side, extended in the direction of the city of Belladonna. "It would be safer to head to the city instead of staying out here."

Guzen nodded once more.

"Yes it would be definitely wiser to head into the city premise. And I would be grateful for guidance sir. Surely I would not mind conversation on the way"

Xorin smiles as he nods. "Very well, please follow me." He slightly bows before guiding the way towards the city of Belladonna.

Marc wandered the forest, searching for useful materials all over the place, the research he's delving into at this time requires materials not used in Belladonna so he has to find the materials himself, not completely sure of what he actually could need he brought a backpack in order to have room for everything. Harvesting plants, metals, different types of rocks, insects, even some parts of dead animals.

After wandering for a little over five hours he found a couple of big wolves laying on the ground next to a tree, it didn't look like they were moving at all and from a bit away it was possible to see that there had been some kind of struggle there some time ago (This is happening around 2-3 hours after the event with Xorin). Being careful he unsheathed his dagger, putting it into the pouch before getting into a low stance, a few seconds later a dagger appeared in both of his hands and he slowly started closing in on the wolves.

Tessa walked across the grass in the forest her thoughts were lost on the results of her most recent experiment concerning her research into abilities, specifically elemental abilities. However she was drawn back into reality when her left foot hit something, Tessa stopped before looking down only to step back and cross her arms as she looked at the wolves that weren't moving, she then extended her right hand outwards before a fireball lit up in her hand and her eyes turned scarlet red, but she stopped when she heard someone else approaching and turned to look at Marc before she said.

"It's been a while since I've seen you"

Blinking a few times as he heard the familiar voice Marc stopped before getting out of the combat stance. "Tessa? Is that really you?"
He hadn't seen her since before he moved to Belladonna 6 years ago without telling anyone.
"It's really been a while." He walked closer to her while keeping an eye on the wolves, in case they started moving. Though he thought it was strange that they didn't even budge when Tessa had bumped into one of them. (They are dead, one of them with the throat ripped out and the other is missing the head, Marc can't see the wounds from his direction.)

"It's been six long years since we've seen each other Marc, after all that time it's good to see you again"

Tessa said with a kind smile on her face as she turned to Marc, she lowered both her arms extinguishing the flame in her right hand and her eyes turning back to it's natural emerald colour, Tessa then looked around before she said.

"If you are still following the same path you were before you left I'll take it you are looking for materials right?"

(I'm aware that they are already dead )

"It's good to see you too Tessa, sorry for not telling you that I moved away from Windohym,"
Marc closed in on the wolves and crouched, inspecting the wounds. "You're right about materials... not much I can get in stores where I live..." Not smiling he used his daggers to cut off the parts he needed, putting them into his containers in his backpack. "Do you see the head of the other wolf? It doesn't seem to be on the ground here and the wounds look like they were made by a bigger creature."

(Oh they were alive when Xorin and Gozen left, they were just knocked out that's why I said it.)

"No I'm afraid I don't see the head of the other wolf"

Tessa said slowly as she looked around for the head of the other wolf, however she turned back towards Marc before she said.

"Why did you move away from Windohym?.... oh there it is"

Tessa said spotting the head of the other wolf, she walked over to it before bending down and picking it up, she then carried it over to Marc before placing it on the ground next to him, she then knelt down before she said.

"I was travelling to Belladonna to do some research on the abilities of some of the Vampires, humans or half breeds there, but I actually kinda got lost in this forest..... never thought I'd ever experience being lost in a forest"

While harvesting any remaining useful materials marc glanced up at Tessa. "To be honest... I got an offer to move my store to Belladonna and I did it. The new store it three times the size and it also has a private lab."
He worked for a little over ten minutes before removing the wolf brain from the decapitated wolf head. Inspecting it quickly before placing it a sealed glass container in the backpack.
Standing up as he wiped his hands on some rags from the backpack he looked at Tessa again. "Do you need a place to stay while in town?"
