PostSubject: Little Ray of Sunshine   Tue Feb 23, 2016 7:53 am

On particularly overcast day in a particularly hustley and bustley camp in the middle of a green Valley betwixt two large mountains... Dinner was being served. The bell rang, alerting all in the camp that it was time to eat, everyone starting to line up in the large mess hall for their meal. Everyone was so lively, you almost wouldn't guess that all of the ponies and such here were part of the militia group known as the Equestrian Rangers, a dedicated group of volunteers that kept the land safe where the royal guard could not. Entirely self sustained and self reliant, not needing the funding from the government that other organizations did.

Standing in the line today was a lovely young ball of energy, wearing her autumn red leather armor supplimented with pieces that looked to be from another set of plate. Beneath that she wore her black hoodie and a pair of cargo pants with simple leg and knee protection. On her back sat a weapon that looked far too big for her short stature, a long and wide greatsword that would have been difficult for a stallion to weild, let alone the mare! She hummed and swayed back and forth as she grabbed her food tray with her black furred hands went to sit down to eat. Good ol' mac and weenies today! Yum yum! She brushed aside her red-streaked, black mane and brought the fork to her mouth, wiping a mess from her golden lips as she accidentally makes a mess. "Whoops! Heh..."

A lone stallion in a heavy black cloak brings his tray of food to a secluded corner of the mess hall. A bandanna hinds the lower half of his face and the hood pulled over his head obscures the rest. As he sits down, the glowstones in his vicinity flicker and dim before winking out, a dark aura disrupting their magic. The stallion pulls the clothe down to uncover his mouth, sharp white points flashing in the dark corner as he eats.

The lights going out would draw a little bit of attention, a couple of passersby complaining about faulty rune lines. Cynder herself looked over and saw the stranger, sitting in the dark corner. She poured herself a glass of rum and watched him eat, quickly identifying him as a thestral. Thestrals were pretty cool she guessed, though they were probably a little weird from spending moat of their time out at night.

But! That was no excuse to exclude them! She picked up her plate and walked over to the mysterious stranger, oversized sword clinking on her back. "Hey there. Wouldn't you rather eat in the light?" Only when the words had come out of her mouth did she realize that was kind of a silly question. "Erm, nevermind. You mind if I sit with you?" She kept a warm smile, still holding her tray with her full bowl of mac & weenies.

Phantom looks up at the yellow mare as she approaches, red eyes shining from under the shadow of his hood. "The light doesn't agree with me," he says, returning his gaze to his food, "You can sit with me if you wish, though I'm not sure what you think such a gesture will get you."

Cynder smiled and sat down, laying her sword on the edge of the seat. "Get me? What do you mean?" She asks, her next action being stuffing her mouth full of mac & weenies and then washing it down with rum. She doesn't give him much time to answer before she asks another question. "I haven't seen you around here before. Are you a new addition? Mercenary?" She gasps! "You're totally a mercenary right?! Hard boiled and mysterious!"

Phantom sighs and raises his head to meet the mare's gaze, laying down his fork andpushing his tray slightly aside so he can rest his arms on the table, Of course she's a talker, "You could say I'm a mercenary, which is why I questioned your actions, as usually I am only approached when others desire the use of my talents and have something to offer in exchange. Seeing as you were unaware of this, I am curious as to why you decided to approach me in the first place,"

Cynder blinked at the thestral's explanation, finding it a bit odd. "What, people don't just, you know, want to talk?" She asks. "I just wanted to be friends! You know how Equestria is after all, right? Ever since Princess Sparkle came around anyway." She takes a bite of toast, still holding her smile. "But if you're a mercenary, you're probably here for something important, right? You gonna help us with the raider problem?"

Phantom smirks, amused by the mare's comments, "People do not usually see me as approachable under normal circumstances, you are most certainly an outlyer in that regard. As for why I'm here, your superiors were unclear of the classification level of my assignment, so for now I shall only share with you the vague details; I am here in case any opportunities arise to strike a crippling blow against your enemies, or in case they need someone for what would be a suicide mission for anyone else."

Cynder nodded at the vague and mysterious thestral. He was a contingency plan then. That was kind of neat. Though, she had to admit, a bit strange as far as mercenary work went. "Cool. Cool. Hey, what's your name anyway?" She asks, realizing she hadn't asked for such a thing yet and extending a friendly hand. "I'm Cynder! Cynder Ardor, ranked corporal and greatsword enthusiast!"

"Phantom," he replies, flashing a shark like smile and taking Cynder's offered hand, giving it a firm shake, "Phantom Tears, professional assassin and master of shadows," he takes a moment to really look at the mare for the first time, admiring her fit build and cute face, Despite her hyperactive attitude, I think I'd like to get to know this mare a little better~

Cynder snickers at Phantom's self title. "Professional assassin." She says with a bit of a giggle. "Wouldn't you want people to not know that? Not that I'm questioning if you're good or not!" She quickly corrects herself and clears her throat. "Anyway. You'll probably go off to the raider's stronghold if you're waiting for them to give you work. We don't usually go and assault stuff like that, being as we're not really soldiers. More like security for the outlying villages and settlements. Moat we do is escort a few farmers or help with the crops. But a lot of us have seen our fair share of action. Myself included." She includes herself with a bit of pride, holding herself in higj esteem.

The thestral shrugs, "It usually doesn't matter if my target knows whether or not I'm coming... A whole stronghold all to myself, huh? My your superiors are generous, I should send them a gift basket to show my appreciation... Oh? I'd love to hear about some of your encounters if you're willing to share."

Cynder puffed out her chest a bit, her leather armor creaking a bit with her proud pose. "Well, I'm sure you've probably heard by now the daring heroics of how I single handedly faught off a hoard of bandits on the south ridge." It was three bandits. One of them was probably sick. "And how I stormed fearlessly into a camp of raiders, slaying them and puting and end to last winters frustrations!" She triped, was discovered, and finally rescued by her teacher.

Phantom tries not to smirk as the mare puffs out her chest, stealing a glance here and there as he nods and puts on an impressed expression while she recounts her adventures, "My my, quite impressive. I actually haven't heard about either of those, though I haven't really heard much of anything from anyone, you're the first person who hasn't been too intimidated to speak to me."

"I try and make friends with everyone." Cynder says, going back to sitting regularly and continued to eat her meal. "Besides, you seem pretty cool. Maybe we can hang out, do a mission or two together." She suggested with a mouthful of mac.

As if on que, an elderly stallion, dressed in armor approached the two of them "Phantom. You're needed. And you as well Cynder." He says, handing Phantom a scroll with mission details on it. It contained coordinates and a name for an assassination, within the Raider stronghold. "Cynder, you'll show him the way since you know the land the best. Be careful, and don't get hurt out there." And without much else, he leaves and exits the mess hall.

Cynder had given a mock salute to her commander and bounced with excitement. "Holy shit! What timing, right?"

Phantom chuckles and smirks, "Sure, that sounds like fun," Alone in the field with this mare, I doubt I'd be able to control myself, He turns his attention to the officer when he stops by their table, accepting the scroll and looking it over, Well, looks like we'll be testing that theory~
The thestral smiles at Cynder and nods as he rolls the scroll back up and slips it into his cloak, "What timing indeed. When do you want to head out?"

Cynder stands and flexes, showinf off her biceps. "I'm ready to go right now!" She says, dumping the last of her food and rum into her mouth and then grabbing her oversized sword. "The quicker the better, right? And that place is only like, a day away from here! It'll be a cinch!" Though the chipper mare seemed like she was all talk, she certainly wouldn't have been chosen to go with Phantom because of her good looks. And she was eager to prove herself to any and everyone. "I can get my pack ready in like, ten minutes! I'll meet you outside the main office building!" And then she turns and hurries out of the mess hall to get her things, ready for another adventure.

Phantom takes advantage of Cynder's little gun show to check her out more. He only manages a nod in response before he's watching the mare hurry off, enjoying the fresh angle, I don't suppose they'd agree to give me her as payment instead of the bits and equipment we settled on... The thestral wonders as he stands and takes care of his own tray, having hardly touched the food. He then exits the mess hall and makes his way to the designated meeting area, waiting for Cynder before heading out.

Very soon, Cynder is rushing to the office building, a small pack on her back and her sword strapped down tight as well. She stops in front of Phantom and catches her breath, having exerted a lot of energy already. "I'm ready!" She says, giving him a thumbs up and straightening herself out. She holds on to the straps of her back and smiles. "This place is just west of here. About a day away if we take the roads. But if we cut through the valley they we'll make it in about half that time. Then we can sleep and act in the morning."

Phantom smiles at the sight of Cynder running to meet him, nodding in acknowledgement as she speaks, "We could be ambushed in the valley..." he looks up at the sky a moment, a smirk on his face and a hungry glint in his eyes when he returns his gaze to Cynder, "But it should be dark by the time we get there, so it won't matter~"

"Weeeelll ok then!" Cynder says, getting started with they're journey and walking down a path through the valley. She, of course, doesn't stop talking, bwing the little conversationist she is. She goes on about adventures across the world, bwing kidnapped by slavers and seems really enthusiastic about rum in particular. Luckily, she brought her own bottle of it to tide her over, the girl had some high tolerance!

Soon they're walking down at the bottom of the valley, Cynder leading the way and happily humming a tune. "So Phantom. What made you decide to be an assassin anyway?"

Phantom nods and laughs when appropriate as Cynder tells him her life's story, making a mental note to stock up on rum. It takes him a moment to realize the mare had asked him a question she was actually expecting an answer for, "Oh, uh, well, that's a bit of a long story, and to be honest I don't recall all of the details very clearly..."

"C'mon, you,gotta know something!" Cynder says, touching a finger to her lips. "Here, I'll guess!" She says with a bounce, turning around and walking backwards skillfully, stepping over roots and holes as if she could see them. "Yyyoooouuuu're trying to avenge your family after they were viciously murdered at the hands of a dastardly outlaw! With a moustache!" It was really hard to tell if she was being serious or just silly.

Phantom is somewhat amazed at Cynder's reverse walk, wondering if he had missed the eyes in the back of her head because his attention was focused much lower during their trek. He smiles and shakes his head, chuckling at her guess, "No, I'm pretty sure that wasn't it. I can't even remember my parents. What are your parents like? You've told me of your grand adventures, but what was your life like before you joined this militia?" The thestral makes an obvious attempt to shift the focus of their conversation, counting on Cynder not to be too suspicious and just be glad to have more to talk about.

Cynder looks curiously at Phantom as he explains he doesn't even know his parents. That was sad. Parents were pretty awesome to have. At least, Cynder thought so. "Hmmm, my parents are pretty cool. My dad's a metalurgist and my mom's a herbologist. They basically treat my like their baby when I'm around because I'm the youngest. And their only girl. Got four brothers!" She takes a small hop to avoid a puddle and keeps walking.

"I guess I grew up pretty normal for a Canterlot mare. Dad made me go to a private school though, with uniforms and everything." She sticks her tongue out in disgust. Ahe always hated those unoforms she had to wear. Mostly because she hated wearing skirts. "Got a few close friends though. *Gasp!* You should totally let me add you to my friends list!"
