In Sheep's Clothing


Tim Newman had been a drifter all his life. The poor man could never find honest work. He cheated and stole for a living; and his inheritance was drank and gambled away. Miserable and soon-to-be evicted from his meager home, in a moment of desperation he joined the Triadic Knights. Little did he know he'd be stationed in the backwater mudhole of Rivenmaur.

So there poor Tim stood, keeping a not-so-careful eye over Rivenmaur's perimeter. It was a hot day and he was roasting beneath sweat-soaked chain mail and leather. He had begun to doze off when he heard a twig snap.

Standing far too close for comfort was a wild-haired human boy. And appeared to be sniffing the knight, like an animal. "Whoa! Ge' back, you," Tim called out as he woke. And the boy skipped back.

"Malithra," the feral child said flatly, "I need to see Malithra."

"Malithra's a busy woman, kiddo," the guardsman replied, humoring him "I'm sure she'd love to see you but she's got a lot on her plate, so how 'bout you tell me and I'll tell her, huh?"

The child peered up at the guard, narrowing his amber eyes. With that he let out a snarl, pointed teeth bared and hair standing up on end. "It is a thing of importance. Bring her, manfool."

Even before he enlisted to help the Knightly order resettle Rivenmaur, Tim Newman was a man that did not scare easily. Ordinarily he'd be repressing the urge to smack the snotty little runt, but... the Paladin simply nodded. And off he went to fetch the priestess.

The boy, meanwhile, took a seat under a tree. The things that the manfools built from dead wood and stone, they made him ill at ease.

Malithra stood outside the temple getting her horse ready to ride out when Tim came to her with the message.

With a friendly smile Malithra spoke softly "A boy? Hmm... Yes, I will meet with him. I was headed that way, any way." She climbed her horse and nodded to Tim. "Why don't you take a break for now. Get something to eat and rest up before going back to town. It is a long way off, no reason to make the trip twice in one day."

With that Tim sighed as he watched her ride off. "Wounder what the recruits made for lunch..." He turned and walked inside.

The child did not rise from his seat as the priestess approached, he did not even look up at her. "You should not have come back," he said quietly, barely above a whisper. "Your village, and the people here: I smell death on them. I bear you no ill will, little one, but this place is no longer for your kind. Begone from here, and return to your stone dens."

Malithra sat down under the tree contemplating the boys word's as she pulled back her hood. She spoke slow so to be clear, and not to say the wrong words. She figured there was more to the boy then met the eye. "My kind?"

Though being called little she found somewhat insulting however, she knew he was not talking about her stature. "You think me like the others before? I assume, correct me if I am wrong. You speak for the elves and there spirits. If this is so, then I would like you to know that I have no intent on leaving. I will say that we will not be expanding into the forest. I have no quarrel with the elves and only wish to have peace with them."

She leaned her head back on the trunk looking at some leaves fall. "Also, I am searching to help...." Stops a moment once more to think. "Undo some of the damage done. "

Malithra sits back not looking at the boy but waiting to see his reply.

"We will not help you," the boy replied bluntly, "But neither will we assail you. I only bear warning that no good will come of what you do, only blood. The Black Rider will not stop; and I will only shield my own people from him. And the barbarian-men you fight with... you'll not rest once they free their huntress."

The wild-child had said what he had come to, and was eager to leave Rivenmaur. Hopping up from his spot beneath the maple beneath, he began to stalk off into Moonveil Forest. "Leave," was his final word to the priestess.

Malithra just watched the boy leave wandering how she will deal with the Huntress, as well as the Rider.
