Elkintra counts himself lucky to have met the group he now travels with. And such boisterous singers too! He didn’t know the words to the songs of Big Daddy, Little Sister and IMP but they were all tunes easy to learn, and although the harmonies were as cacaphonic as the bellows of pack lizards at feeding time, it was good to get out some artistic expression and enjoy a touch of ritual again.
As he travelled, Elkintra contemplated his present relationship with each of its members. Lore seemed to be a bit of an introvert, but this may be due to the aftermath of the poison and the near death experience. Elkintra knew only too well how such and event could drain a personality of its vitality. Nonetheless, he felt certain he had forged a certain bond with the Kayal from the moment of their meeting. And more importantly, he felt he could work with him in a fight.
Big Daddy and Little Sister were obviously an extremely tight knit pair and not easily swayed by others. But they both seemed reasonable enough. Little Sister had offered payment from his help at an early stage and Big Daddy had even engaged in friendly conversation. However, he would still have to be wary of them until he gained their trust fully. Certainly, he should endeavour not to do anything to anger either of them.
The dark elf wondered at the Imp’s motives. Certainly, he was intelligent and cunning but his old Etiquette Tutor, Master Ikk’ ba, would have cracked him over the snout several times already for his poor tact. Elkintra found it strange that someone new to the party (like himself) would jeopordise his position by being so haughty and demanding. Perhaps Imps were like that. Perhaps he thought his disdain for the others went unnoticed. Nonetheless, he was the hardest to like and would be the hardest to trust in any battle.
Fenril seemed quite a straightforward sort of chap and Elkintra was glad of his friendship but he had no idea how the man would handle himself in a fight. Perhaps fighting was not his thing, but at this stage in the development of this small group, he certainly seemed to be the leader to follow.
