Atani

Western Fiore was a new region to Atani. She didn't believe she passed a lot of it when she traveled from Athalran to Hargeon, if any of it at all for that matter. It was hard to keep track of regions when you were constantly venturing through small towns and thick forests. Classic to her Wood Elf nature, Atani preferred that method of travel over the main roads. Though she knew those too from studying maps of Fiore, it was second nature to her to... well... travel through nature. Although most people took the main roads because they felt safer, Atani felt quite the opposite. The woods brought her a sense of security. There were accidents on roads. There were thieves who liked to jump people who were traveling on their lonesome, much like Atani did 99% of the time. I mean, a young blonde woman who was traveling without accompaniment? She was practically their prime target. Unlike mages more suited for combat, nothing about her screamed 'Hey! I'm actually an S-Rank mage!' But she digressed.

If someone wanted to make the mistake of trying to steal from her, she could deal with them swiftly. But it was still an annoyance.

Atani

An annoyance the Wood Elf was able to avoid by merely taking the road less traveled... If you even wanted to call it a road, for it wasn't. It was the woods, or at the very least some other part of nature. Sure, some had bears, wolves, and vulcans. The great thing about being herself was that she had the rare ability to talk to animals. Imagine that. Wild animals were used to Wood Elves such as herself fearlessly, most of the time even calmly, approaching them with ease. Conversing with them though, even that was an ability rarely seen among the elves.

If it were Atani, she would have been surprised if an ordinary animal suddenly started talking to someone like Lee or Manzo, but she didn't believe it was the same the other way around. Animals with their primal minds likely wouldn't comprehend the significance of someone like her talking to them. It was like how they behaved with humans. A fox who grew up without having once seen a human would still know to flee from one at sight. They wouldn't know why; it was just instinct. Instinct also told them that for communication to occur, there must be some level of similarity.

Atani

Talking to animals was strangely how she got to Baska in the first place. There was not much terrestrial wildlife in Astera. To feel more at home, she retreated to the nearby woods temporarily which apparently connected with the woods that laid in Baska's territory. As such, the local animals from both towns somewhat shared bits and pieces of territory. She was curious what Baska was like-- Zane had mentioned the place once. It was where he had gotten the ancient book Atani had yet to translate from.

Baska was the centre of it all according to the animals. Oak was feared. It was home to Eternal Nightmare which was run by a Wizard Lord. Astera was a beautiful port town, but it was more touristy. It suffered in reputation after the infamous demonic incursions, however. Baska though? Baska was the hot spot of merchants far and wide. Grand sparring tournaments were held upon the Great Baska Rock. Beasts roamed the outskirts and were hunted for sport. None of those were the reasons Atani wanted to visit, however. From what she heard, the town was also a great source of income for mages, probably better than her guild's home base.

Atani

Though Infinity Wolves was still very much in its youth, Atani didn't see any harm in taking a short trip to Baska. Her plan was to stay in the town a couple nights, pick up some jobs here and there, and return to Astera to be there with LeeAnn and the rest of the guild. Simple as that.

Plus, it couldn't hurt to get the name of their guild out early. Baska was, after all, a neighboring town of theirs. If Infinity Wolves could get the town on their good side, it would likely benefit them greatly. The only issue was Eternal Nightmare but... Ah, that was another issue for another time. For now, Atani had to focus on the little things. You always had to start somewhere, and for a new guild that was still trying to get their name out, that somewhere had to be someplace small. For Atani, that most easily translated into completing quests, helping the townsfolk out with whatever ailed them.

Coming into Baska, the town appeared to be very similar to what she had imagined it would look like. Skeptic merchants, open greens, run down buildings, dry summer heat. Yup, seemed to be right.

Atani

In the midst of Atani searching for the town's local request board for any mage or adventurer's use, a quiet tap came to her shoulder. A slightly louder 'excuse me' followed. Curious, Atani turned around. Before her stood a delivery boy with a letter in his hand.

"I've been looking everywhere for you!" he exclaimed. She didn't follow. "Here, Fernando said to give this to you. You are to meet with him at once!" She still didn't follow.

"Hey... I'm sorry, but I think you have the wrong girl," she gently explained. "Nope," the boy insisted. "Elf woman with long blonde hair and green eyes. Don't get many of those around here! Anyway, he'll be in his fashion studio. Good luck!"

"But-- !" It was too late. The boy was scampering off to his next delivery, and Atani was left with a note not likely meant for her to read, but unfortunately she didn't know what else to do with it besides return it to this Fernando guy himself. Considering he ran a fashion studio in the middle of a town that consisted largely of farmland and pubs, something as unique and niche as that would be exceptionally hard to miss.

Atani

Atani was right. Fernando's fashion studio stuck out like a sore thumb in the middle of Baska. Mannequins dressed in flashy clothing decorated the windows, drawing the attention of passersby who, before then, had probably grown used to the earthy shades that decorated the majority of Baska. The Wood Elf could only begin to imagine the type of person who would be so bold as to put a sparkling fashion studio in the middle of a rustic merchant's town.

The nature mage entered the fashion studio. A tall man who Atani could only assume to be Fernando was deciding which patterned hat would pair best with the outfit situated upon the nearest mannequin. The man's hair was in two shades of violet, one darker and the other lighter. He wore an outfit as eccentric as the ones he designed. It had to be him.

"Excuse me, Fernando?" Atani piped up. The man whisked around. Upon seeing the mage, a broad smile came to his face. "Finally, you've arrived!"

Once again, Atani was confused. "I'm sorry, I think--"

"You know, I sent for another elf, but I remember you from all those years ago. The great Fernando never forgets a face."

Atani

Clearly, 'the great Fernando' did, for Atani would have surely remembered meeting such a man. But on the other hand... No, she couldn't see herself willingly getting herself involved with this man. Unless of course her past self had a slightly different take on things, but Atani tried to shove those thoughts aside. All would come in good time... hopefully.

"Well, anyway, let me catch you up to speed. My fashion shows have been a huge success as of lately. Of course that's to be expected with a designer of my caliber, but it seems my success has drawn the attention of some rather... unsavory individuals."

Atani asked the man to elaborate on that. Though he didn't initially want her specific help, he was okay with settling for her now. Perhaps the matter was just that urgent. Besides, what kind of light mage would she be if she turned a guy in need down?

It seemed that some 'accidents' have been happening at a suspiciously high rate in Fernando's presence. Such 'accidents' included a heavy cabinet from the studio falling, nearly crushing Fernando in the process. Similarly, a large, sharp, crystalline chandelier fell from the ceiling and onto the walkway.

Atani

It crashed mere inches from not just him, but one of his models too. There were some other instances described, but none as drastic as the most recent ones. Fernando feared they were escalating, and he believed his competition, Jaune Chameur, was the guilty party. He also ran a fashion boutique in Baska. What were the odds?

Atani's task was to stalk this Jaune guy and see what he was up to. Fernando mentioned his regular haunts. The elf made a mental note of that and went to seek out this rival of Fernando's. Just like finding the fashion studio, finding Jaune was a piece of cake. Like Fernando, he liked to make a statement with his appearance. A statement that would only go unnoticed in a land full of people like her current client.

Atani never lost track of the man as she followed him. It was an exceptionally easy task when her target had highlighter yellow hair and bubblegum pink pants. For the most part, he didn't seem to be up to anything dubious... that is, until Atani noticed an attractive woman got his attention. A woman she had seen at the studio briefly, probably one of Fernando's models.

Atani

Jaune stalked the woman until she was close to her home, away from any onlookers. It was then when he rushed forward and pinned her against the closest wall. With a grin, he drew a dagger that had been concealed in one of his many pockets.

"Hey!" Atani exclaimed, rushing out from hiding. A look of annoyance flashed across Jaune's face. He swiftly procured a magic scroll that teleported him away to gods knew where. "Damnit," the elf cursed under her breath. The man got away, but Atani still saw this as a win. She was able to confirm that Fernando's suspicions were most likely correct. He at the very least showed hostility by threatening a known model of Fernando's. What's more, if Atani didn't end up taking the request on behalf of the other blonde elf, who knows what could have happened to the model? If Jaune wasn't afraid to drop a chandelier on one, he probably wasn't afraid to cut them with his dagger, but who knew. For all Atani knew, it could've been a scare tactic from the start, but she wasn't going to take the chances. She reported back to Fernando with her findings and was adequately rewarded.
