Looking between his companions and the newcomer, Adrius sighed. Ever since he met Eris people seemed to be leaping out of nowhere and band together, companionship wasnt surely dead yet but in these dark days people kept to themselves more often then not. It was a most perplexing situation which put a slight smile on Adrius' face, wherever there is interest, a scholar must go, and as the last of the order it seemed to leave him the task of first-scholar too. Hearing the meek one in the party mutter and hand him the reigns of his horse, Adrius dismissed him for now, whatever foolishness he was up to it was of little consequence, his confesion of non-combatace showed there was still innocence left, but Adrius had learned long ago that even the meek must take up arms against their foes in this cruel world, whether it be a farmer protecting his sheep, or a religious man taking a final stand against the destruction of his beliefs. "Mistress elf, we were merely passing that scene past and required the horses for our own needs. Since you must have seen it previously to acuse us, and we have come from there after you saw it, we cannot possibly be the perpetrators." The elf gave him a flat look, Adrius never could read peoples expressions. "And it makes me wonder how you would have thought to gain your vengence on the path of strangers, untill dead boy here revealed our destination. But alas, we seek not to slay, we only go to the aid of an aquaintence, and that is all." Putting his reigns down before him, and setting his back straight, Adrius placed one hand before him and the other slightly aloft as if making a speech. "Vengence is the tool of the lost, whose lives are perverted from righteousness by the acts of the sinful. In time those who sin shall feel the wrath of the world, but to give up thine virtues to deal the wrath yourself, is a much greater loss than can ever be avenged" Placing his hands back down on the reigns with a smile, Adrius coughed, "A quote from the chronicler of Belthis, a thousand years since it was spoken aloud but it still carries truth, Death will come to Galathrist for his crimes, but you should not sacrifice your life just to end his" Adrius stopped stroking his axeblade which he had unconciously begun doing. He killed as a punishment those sinners who corssed him, he brought the light to dark places, he did not seek vengence, not for any mortal being. Adrius looked to the others, who istead of watching him, or at least pondering his words, were looking up behind him. turning Adrius looked upon a.......a dragon!?
