The Crocus gardens had been famed as the most beautiful gardens in the capital, possibly the most beautiful place even in Fiore, and yet Odin had never taken the time to visit during his tenure there. He had been almost everywhere: to multiple bars and inns, the castle Mercurius, even the grand cathedral which, given his form as a Lich, caused quite a stir among the local populace, but he had never quite worked up the courage to enter the gardens. Even now, he had waited until darkness had fallen across the land before entering, taking his time to enjoy the beauty while he could. The moon was out but covered with clouds, and visibility was rather low, as Odin went through and admired each flower, stopping at one that was close to becoming his favourite. Before, he had always enjoyed the rose, as it was both pretty but deadly, and Lucifer had always considered himself the same. Now that the demon had left Odin's body, he needed a new favourite, as he was far from conventionally 'pretty'. He had stopped next to the chrysanthemum, in a distant and hidden away part of the gardens, watching it sway in the slight wind that was blowing, it's large petals -if you could even call them that- looking much heavier that the stem could withstand. It was a flower that was keeping itself upright despite hardship, and that was something Odin could relate to.

It had been about a week since the attack, since Arthurias had announced his rise to the throne, and since he had announced that it was no longer legal to discriminate someone based on how they looked. Seven days, and yet Odin still received the occasional look from the people. While everyone was happy to have a new Emperor, going against their natural dispositions when it came to a Lich like Odin was not easy. They saw a monster, and they were instantly angry and scared, that wouldn't be something to disappear any time soon, but Odin had become accustomed to it. There were few people that looked past his appearance, but those few were some of the most important people to him.

Little progress had been made towards repairing both Mercurius and the surrounding building as a result almost nothing had been left completely untarnished by the assault save for the odd building here and there. Strangely and almost deliberately the Crocus gardens famous for their all year round flowering was untouched by both defender and attackers. Because of the state of peacefulness and stability, Kon had begun to use it as a place of solace. Entering the gardens at the dead of night when few were around to spot him using the secondary entrance for the gardeners themselves while perhaps unwisely taking his weapon, The Punisher with him. The secrecy was a result of the new ruling party requiring him to reduce his presence to the public being a former nobility himself and a current Holy Knight.

The events that had transpired within the walls of Crocus had left many of the community shocked and troubled about the future. Kon was amongst those individuals with him having a growing desire to leave the capitol and find his beloved fiance who was hopefully unaffected by the conflict that was beginning to spread through the country under the rule of the new “Emperor.” In spite of his strong want to leave, Kon was forced to remain through a obligation by the Holy Knights there should he need to defend the organisation from yet another attack.

The only reason why Alice had not be asked as well was due to her pregnancy almost having come to an end. He wondered how she would have coped in this sort of situation that he had been put in as he bent down to look at a thorny rose just about to bloom. “Beautiful….” He spoke under his breath before returning to his feet, standing up to make his way to walk around the rest of the garden, punisher still on his back. As he moved through the maze-like garden a familiar figure came into view radiating a distinct glow he had come to associate with his friend, Lucifer. “What was he doing here at this time of the night?” He thought to himself before answered his own question with his own reason for being there himself.

They had never been the type to discuss whom they worked for however it was more important that ever for him to know who Lucifer stood with if they hoped to retain the relationship that they had developed over the last few months. Approaching the man at a friendly pace, he rose his right hand up into the air with the moonlight striking a glare out from his golden eye and his huge punisher weapon as he did so. “Seems like only yesterday that we saw each-other in Baska town, Lucifer How are you?”

Odin had decided to stick around in the area of the gardens where he had been before, now sitting on the ground watching the flowers, and just enjoying the company of his own mind, something he had still not gotten used to. Since losing the demonic presence of Lucifer, his mind had been missing someone to constantly talk to, someone that had been present for as long as the Lich could remember, and now it was gone, replaced by a silence. He originally couldn't understand how the normal people could cope with such an infinite nothingness in their heads, and why they didn't go insane from it, but over time he had gotten used to it. Now, he even enjoyed it, the solace of solitude, and he had retreated there to think about life as he watched the chrysanthemum move in the wind, thinking about how it made him feel. He had never thought much about flowers, never really cared for them before, but losing one's life made it easier to appreciate the things that captured life, and many people viewed flowers as perfect representations of life. They grew from a seed, blossomed, passed on their seed, and then died, the most basic necessities to continue life and live as they were. Humans usually did all that, but they over complicated things along the way. Flowers kept it simple, and for that Odin couldn't help but appreciated the life they must've led, even if they weren't truly sentient to experience it in the same way.

An unfamiliar voice speaking on familiar terms broke Odin out of his trance, as he turned to see a stranger that he didn't recognise. The word's of the man, however, Odin could place, as he had only met one male in Baska who knew his name, and the blonde hair -despite the slight differences- made it all the more likely. Getting to his feet, and smiling at the man he assumed to be his friend, Odin spoke to Kon, greeting the man he had come to trust and enjoy the company of. "Okay, maybe that is a better way to greet someone if you've changed your face. Better than me running up to you looking like this", a slight chuckle escaped Odin's lips before he continued, "It's good to see you Kon. I'm well, but you look like you've been busy since Baska."

Able to poke fun at the man made up of little more than bones and bound in form by his very essence, he returned with his own quick jab. “Yes, I must say the last time we met you did give me quite a startle, liches aren’t commonly seen well really anywhere to be frank perhaps all that is to change with the new Emperor…” Leaving the tone of the conversation open for debate rather then illustrating his own opinion on races associated with darkness or evil in general. “Ah hmm As for my appearance there was an incident that took place between being in Baska and Crocus that caused me to clearly lose the pigment in my hair and while not as noticeable in the darkness changed my eye green for some reason.” Curious about how his friend was doing he continued. “So what brought you to Crocus…, business or pleasure?” Having carried the punisher on his back for quite sometime, he slung it with his right hand and planted it onto the ground making a resounding clunk as he did so. “Don’t mind the cross, it’s just really heavy, needed to put it down for a bit.” Smiling with the light gleaning off his white teeth as he did so.

Kon, being the man that Odin knew relatively well from their encounters, made things political shortly after they had greeted one another. Truly this was a man who knew more about how the world worked than he had initially let on. Both Odin and Kon were telling half truths and concealed lies whenever they spoke, neither knowing the true alignment of the other, or the organisations for which they both worked. If that was a known fact, then things would be very different indeed. He mentioned the Emperor, and how the man was seemingly going to bring about some change when it came to Liches, something Odin was excited for, despite never showing it, "Yes I heard the announcement thing from the new Emperor, Arthurias was it? Not going to lie, despite the man's methods I'm hopeful that the future will be bright, at least for me and anyone like me. It'd be nice not to be judged on appearance one day, although I can't really blame it if people do."

Then the vague truths started again, as Kon said that something had happened to cause his change, a change that removed any pigment in his hair, as well as for some reason turning his eyes green. Wait, eye. It was at this moment that Odin started to see more than just his friend standing before him. A golden eye, some kind of relic perhaps, and a glow about him, a glow that Odin had only seen around one other person: a Seraph. He didn't want to believe it, but the facts pointed to the idea that Kon had been the one who attacked Nastasya, something that Odin really hoped wasn't true. He had two people that he cared about in this world, two friends, and they had interacted in possibly the worst way imaginable for Odin. However, it did give some insight as to the kind of power Kon fought for. "Business I'm afraid. My pub has the best alcohol in the land, and let me tell you that isn't easy. But, more importantly and this might be a strange question, but are you a Seraph? Like an angel?"

His friend, enemy, rival, whatever Kon actually was at this point, he put a large cross that had been slung over his back onto the ground, the thud showing that the thing was indeed heavy, "If that's heavy, why you carrying it around all day? Surely you're not the extremely religious type are you?" Odin did not mean any contempt by his questions, merely poking fun at how annoying it must've been to carry around something as large and heavy as the cross, another new addition to Kon's collection since Baska.

Kon wasn’t here to get into a heated debate over the rights and wrong of a hostile takeover on this grand of scale particularly with him being on the “losing” side of such an event. Perhaps Lucifer was involved maybe he wasn’t that’s not what was important at least not yet. He did appear to at least share his sentiments of disapproval towards the Emperor’s methods, Kon equally found his forceful change of regime and new policies of keeping the peace an unstable and unreliable system to base an Empire upon. The blanket claims made within the speech clearly held significant problems with maintaining the foundations of the country now lacking the manpower with the loss of slaves industry would crawl to a halt with the economy suffering significantly from it while races would now be free to roam about without repercussion.

Each was both good from the morale point of view however Kon could easily see within the next few months drastic spikes in crime particularly between various races who held deep seeded hatred only held back by the fists of the Rune Knights and the Holy Knights. Only the Holy Knights as an independent body would be able to actively hunt those who they deemed unsavoury. “The words of a man in power can do a great deal however they do not force the people who the man rules over to view anyone any differently, laws have changed but people don’t forget what has happened to them or others around them.”

Suspicions were raised when Lucifer gave his reason for being in Crocus in the first place, sure he was the owner of a brewery however the fact that he had been not just here during the attack on the royalty and also in Hargeon town deeply suggested that he was only giving him half-truths for him being there in the first place. Did he want to push the matter further?, after all if he was involved with the crimes committed against the former crown would they become enemies as a result? Kon whilst wanting to maintain a friendly relationship with the lich gave a prompt answer probing him in return. “Lucifer, I’m a nice person only a simple human, I might have angelic properties with my magic for instance however I am not a seraph, but let’s back to a matter that you seem to want to avoid.”

Drawing up his gun casually he continued with a questioning, yet still open minded tone. “You say you’re here for work however the fact that you’ve been in the same location as each significant Grimoire Heart related crime is too much of a convince mind explaining yourself?” Noting the comment directed to his cross he answered it as a show of force at the sametime. “Indeed it is quite heavy, though I’m not much of a religious type, this was merely given to me in case I need to use it against someone.”

Kon raised a very good point, one that Odin was acutely aware of and one that unfortunately affected him very heavily. While it was true that Arthurias wanted all races to be accepted as equals, that didn't mean it was going to be the case overnight. Lycans had murdered and killed husbands, vampires had turned and sucked dry mothers and children, and that was not something that could be so easily forgiven simply because a man that enacted a coup wished it so. That was something Odin knew all too well, however in that regard he felt like he was unique, as he was the only Lich to currently exist, and likely the only one anyone would have seen unless they were immortal. "That I can understand, but I don't think I've caused anyone overwhelming harm. I can understand that some races have caused great pain to others, and in that I include humans, but I'd just like to not be seen as a monster, and judged for crimes people assume I've committed." Without even meaning too, Odin was getting rather passionate about this. There was no contempt in his voice, instead he was speaking as someone who just didn't want to be assumed, as most people usually ended up being wrong in those assumptions.

It seemed Odin had been mistaken, and this was not the man he was looking for, to which he breathed a deep sigh of relief, obviously without any air escaping his lungs. Kon had magic that held angelic properties, something Odin hadn't actually known until now, but he himself was not a Seraph, and so he was not the one Odin had to attack, something the Lich couldn't help but be so happy about. This man had become one of his closest friends, for him to have attacked Nastasya would drive a wedge between them that Odin would never be able to recover from. He was glad it was not the case, and they could move on from the awkwardness of their current conversation, "Ah, my mistake friend." Unfortunately, the conversation was about to just get much more awkward and difficult for them both.

Kon was a smart man, and it was only a matter of time before he make some connections, especially due to how secretive Odin often was. He asked if there was any link between Odin and Grimoire Heart, as he had been present during both of the previous attacks: the attack on Blue Pegasus and the attack on Crocus. Technically, although Odin wasn't going to bring it up, there had been more attacks on the guilds than just those two, as all the former guild masters had been killed, not to mention the attack in Era where Theseus was first freed. However, if Odin mentioned the other attacks, Kon could wonder where the knowledge was coming from, and that wouldn't help the situation. Odin had to give an answer though, so he did.

"Wait, but we met in Hargeon, and now you're here in Crocus too. Surely, going by that logic, you're as likely to have some relation to them as I do? You've been just as secretive about yourself as I have been, and that was always how we were. We didn't bring politics into this friendship, why start now?" Odin's voice was calm, as he forced himself not to sound too defensive. He was tempted to call Kon out on being racist, as that's partly how it seemed, but he just wanted them to end this string of conversation and go fishing again, that had been fun.

It then did change, the topic, as Kon spoke about his cross, stating that he didn't carry it for religious purposes, and instead was given it so that he could use it on someone if he so wished. That sparked an interesting question, "Surely you'd just be better punching someone than swinging that around? Seems really impractical."
