Atani

Atani left her room at the inn and started making her way for the Boar Hat Pub, the location she knew was home to the town's public request board. Ironically, she hadn't even taken a request from there as of yet. Though she fully intended on doing so on her first day in Baska, she was stopped in her tracks by a delivery boy who mistook her for another blonde Wood Elf with green eyes who was supposed to arrive at Fernando's shop for assistance. But of course, it was instead Atani who arrived, a far different blonde Wood Elf with green eyes, but a Wood Elf who could luckily assist the man nonetheless. She had intended on kindly returning the letter to him so that he could get it delivered to the correct person, but her attempts were met in vain. Instead, the elf got roped into whatever task he wanted done.

In the end, it didn't even matter who was supposed to help him. He just needed someone to stalk his competition and uncover the truth about who the mastermind was behind the numerous sabotage attempts. Wood Elves, of course, were known for being creatures of habitual silence.

Atani

So of course, when Atani arrived at Fernando's fashion studio, he found her to be a suitable replacement. Though fulfilling his request wasn't exactly what the elf had in mind that day, it was at least something. In the end, she potentially saved a woman's life and ended up with a sizeable amount of jewels-- frankly, Atani hadn't even been expecting much from such a last minute job. She would have been surprised if she got anything for her troubles, seeing as this man didn't officially put forth a request for her taking. There was no contract to be honored. She just had to take the man on his word that he would supply her with adequate payment. Luckily, he pulled through. She would have to keep Fernando in the back of her mind whenever she felt like doing some odds and ends for money.

But now, Atani didn't have to rely on a spontaneous job offer. The Boar's Hat Pub was within her sights. She could smell the scent of smoked pork drifting from the building. She could see people heading through the front door, some cloaked, some armed, some demihuman, all of whom appeared to be mages of sorts.

Atani

If she wanted to get her hands on a good quest, she would have to pick up the pace. The Wood Elf began to walk closer to the building, when all of a sudden:

"Excuse me!"

Atani stopped dead in her tracks. It was that same voice again. The voice of the very delivery boy who mistakenly gave her a letter that wasn't hers to begin with.

"Look, I know you were told to find a blonde elf, but--" The little boy cut her off.

"You are Atani, right? The healer?"

That was new. Atani gave the boy a curious look. Since when were the residents of Baska aware of her healing talents? She wouldn't have been surprised if someone from Hargeon recognized her, but Baska? Infinity Wolves only became established in Astera not too long ago. How the hell did the news of Fiore's Sylvan Fay travel all the way to Baska in such a short amount of time? It couldn't have been because she was an S-Ranked mage encroaching on the land Eternal Nightmare claimed as their own... could it have been? If so, that was worrisome news for the guild, considering all the founders were considered threats in that regard.

Atani

"Yes... that's me," the girl confirmed. She eyed the letter that was grasped in the delivery boy's hands. Was this genuinely a message for her this time? Not one for another blonde haired Wood Elf girl with green eyes, but one for her and her only?

"From Dr. Gerard. He needs to see you at the hospital urgently."

"Understood."

Atani took the letter from the delivery boy. This time, she wasn't going to ask questions. The boy asked if she was the mage known in Fiore to be a healer, which was then followed up with a request for her arrival at Baska's hospital. There was no way Atani could hear those words and not become immediately alarmed. This Dr. Gerard guy needed to see her at once, and so the elf wasted no time. She took the fastest track she could remember to the nearby hospital, and while she did so, she took a few moments to look over the contents of the doctor's letter and... it was illegible. Great. How typical of a doctor not to have neat handwriting. Atani thought that was why they had scribes, but apparently this was so urgent Gerard had to personally scribble.

Atani

Well, it was time to see what the doctor wanted. Upon arrival, it didn't seem like anything particularly hectic was going on at the hospital. That was a good sign at least. Atani mentioned that she was the mage Dr. Gerard requested the presence of and she was directed to where he might be. It wasn't long before Atani reached her destination to find a middle aged man with a bushy brown beard wearing a lab coat pacing back and forth.

Atani cleared her throat. "Dr. Gerard?"

The man looked up from the floor to face the elf. A look of relief washed over his face upon realizing who it was. "Thank Illumin you've come! I trust that means you read my letter?" The look of hope was so pure in the man's eyes, Atani hated to crush it, but alas...

"Well, about that..." She told a white lie. She explained that the delivery boy told her it was necessary to arrive urgently. That part was true. So she rushed over to the hospital figuring Gerard would be able to tell her the key details in person. That part was not the full truth. She did want the doctor's explanation.

Atani

However, she only wanted the doctor's verbal explanation because she couldn't decipher what was written on the letter. Her excuse seemed to be a satisfying enough answer for Dr. Gerard though, which was the good news. He relayed to Atani the information that had been hastily written down. In short, there was an environmental crisis going on in Baska. Animals have been going on wild rampages, and it all seemed to be due to their drinking waters being polluted with some sort of chemical. He was able to synthesize a cure that could be administered to the affected animals, but a cure could only get them so far. As long as the waters were being polluted, antidotes had to keep being produced to ensure the safety of Baska's citizens and to safeguard the natural life that surrounded the town.

The culprits were tracked down to be members of the Cold Colliers. All of this, the pollution of the fresh drinking water to make animals go on wild and dangerous rampages, it was all to make a statement about 'society.' How childish. But no matter how immature it seemed, this gang was a genuine threat to Baska as of right now.

Atani

Dr. Gerard only wanted peace within Baska. Considering the Cold Colliers were all about reshaping society into something that best suited those who were frequently overlooked, Dr. Gerard was hopeful they would be able to listen to reason. They had made their point loud and clear with the grueling poison. There was no reason for any further damage. The best case scenario was that the group's leader, Mattoro, would be willing to simply sit down and talk with any mage who was sent his way.

Atani appreciated Dr. Gerard's pacifism, but she was afraid that a simple talk wouldn't get anywhere with a gang who was willing to go so far as to pollute streams, sending packs of wild boars to stampede through Baska and attack innocent civilians. Nothing about that screamed 'wanting to sit down and talk' to Atani, but this was Dr. Gerard's request. He thought a healer who understood the want for peace would be best suited for this sort of thing. She could perhaps even use her mage's rank for intimidation purposes, but alas, even with that in mind, Atani didn't see this playing out very well. Even so, she was determined to try her best.

Atani

Atani was given the address to the gang's hideout. Upon arrival, she was greeted by two guards who promptly inspected her for weapons. The elf let them give her a pat down without protest. She had nothing to hide. Little did they know, she didn't keep her weapons on her through the traditional sheath or belt. Everything she needed was contained within the little ring on her finger. Nobody suspected a thing from something as small as that.

Atani explained that she was here on behalf of Dr. Gerard, one of the many people who were aiming to find a permanent solution to Baska's river problem. She explained that she simply wished to speak with their leader. Much to her surprise, the guards allowed her entry and took her to a spot where she was told she could have an audience with Mattoro. But what was this spot? Strangely enough, it was a coliseum.

Mattoro stood high above the elf. Atani was allowed to make her plea, but her attempts were futile. The only solution Mattoro saw was to rebuild Baska from the ground up, and with his final refusal of Dr. Gerard's proposal of peace, the leader sent his gang members to attack.

Atani

Frankly, they were all grunts. Alone, none of the attackers would stand a chance against Atani. Together, they were capable of overwhelming less experienced mages; however, having dealt with enemies of this kind before, Atani knew how to swiftly deal with them. She was unable to fight with her bow at such close quarters, but hand-to-hand combat was good enough. She was able to fully defeat some of the grunts, knocking them out cold. The others, she was able to at the very least put them in a long enough daze for her to make an escape. She cared less about inflicting damage and more about getting the hell out of there, because the Cold Colliers came at her with blood lust in their eyes. Like their leader, they were not afraid to kill. Given that Atani was sent to the hideout with no warning of murderous intent, she believed Dr. Gerard did not know how severe of a threat this gang really was to Baska.

Having escaped, Atani hightailed it back to the hospital to meet with Dr. Gerard once more. As he patched up some gashes, Atani informed him of her discoveries. Though the outcome was unfortunate, he rewarded Atani for her efforts and bid her farewell.
