Backdated to the 29th. @Tzila will be accompanying him, but all welcome!

Disappointed by their discovery of the one man army in Neverwinter, the pair had decided to extend their outing. Tzila wanted to check on a pack she was familiar with, and he agreed to follow her lead. But when they arrived, the place was completely deserted. A few stragglers still lingered from the smell of it, but the pack was no more. He was disappointed yet again, and it showed on his face.

Black Hat didn't bother announcing his presence, intending to actually rummage around for any caches this time since they were unable to without a struggle in Neverwinter. At least now they were less likely to be found out if a ghost who still hung around disproved of what they were up to. The whispering of the willow limbs was the only semblance of activity here, which only accentuated how devoid of animal life the place was. It was peaceful here though, and the abundance of willow trees was to his tastes. This place would be a lovely place to stay, he mused before getting to work digging up an old cache.

With Neverwinter forest behind and Mal forgotten for now, Tzila pressed on with Black Hat. Their trip was turning out to be quite a bit longer than she had expected. In her eyes, that was not necessarily a bad thing. It meant more potential opportunities to gather information of which Vengeance would find useful upon their return. She was able to use this time getting to know one of her fellow mercenaries better. And if they were lucky, they'd take the edge off her hunger. Which was partly why she had chosen to bring Black Hat here.

Elysium's fate had been lost to their once former member until she neared the borders. The absence of any fresh scent of kin was proof enough that something had happened to make them disperse. Huffing, she wondered if the emotional strain after losing their loved ones to the bear had made them crumble. They were weak then - she had seen that with her own eyes. Maybe they simply had ran out of steam, of willpower to continue on. 

In the midst of digging up the same cache as Black Hat, head lowered several inches away from his own, but never touching, a dark thought emerged. But she didn't voice it yet, staring intently at the soil around her chilled paws. "I thought you'd like it here. It has your trees..." She clawed at the remnants of a partially frozen beaver. She took several mouthfuls, hardly caring if it hadn't thawed yet. "You know...this used to be my home. The first one ever, here in Teekon." She said, raising her head to take in the place, as if for the first time all over again.

Tzila joined in, and he didn't mind the proximity. Her comment drew a smile from him. How thoughtful. I am fond of this place... maybe I'll come back for a vacation, He jested. They uncovered an icy beaver carcass, which she impatiently bit into. No judgment there though, Black Hat was just as starved. He tore a few chunks off, himself. It was far from fresh, and the cold crept into his core as the meat made it way to his stomach, but food was food.

What Tzila said next intrigued him. Oh? A pause, then it clicked. Ah, so that's why you wanted to come here. Elysium, was it?
