  1. A blue glow ahead signaled that Triton had made his way to the front of the ship. He was struggling in the water surrounding the island, something he wasn’t used to. “There’s an old powerful magic in these waters, it’s interfering with my control!” He shouted above deck. The water was heavier to him causing him to work harder even for simple spells. Triton dug in and coated the front of the ship with a hardened ice, strong as steel. Then he began conjuring small icebergs in front of the ship the would crash against the front causing the ship to slow but not fast enough. Time slowed as he analyzed his surroundings. There was no wind and the water wasn’t pushing the ship. As he focused he could see the aura surrounding the ship. He cursed himself and thought of Flint who would’ve probably noticed the aura by now. He kept at it with the icebergs and added to it by shooting a massive geyser at the front of the ship attempting the expedite the process. It was working but he wasn’t going to be able to slow the ship in time.
  2. Below Oakly, Triton shot out of the water. He landed on the surface of the water, skimming across the surface keeping pace with Oakly. “I’m going to try and slow it down from the front!” He yelled from below as he activated his dragon aura. Then he shot forward leaving a large wake behind him to get ahead of the ship.
  3. Triton made his way to where Killjoy was standing on the ship. “How true do you believe the stories to be about this place?” Triton asked seriously. Killjoy wasn’t the type to let her imagination affect her intelligence. Triton had found it a surprising comfort on the voyage.
  4. Triton simply nodded respectfully back, trying not to draw too much attention to himself in this moment. It was not his place and even though he had been given some command, he hadn’t been with the equestrian army even close to as long as his superiors. He would stick to advising in the war room and not as much with the politics. His logical standpoint was void of emotional ties to the past and it wouldn’t be as well received by his own companions. He intended to follow his superiors lead.
  5. “I think we both know you’ll be needed in battle more than you’re letting on.” Triton chimed in as he sharpened the times on his trident in the corner of the tent. Casually looking over status reports while he worked.
  6. “Well I think the princesses will be thrilled with how well you all are acclimating, I will be delivering a full report to them and Lord Shadow. He especially will be pleased. Good work Echo, you were the right choice to get this group started.” Apollo said commendedly with a flick of his tail. “Noctis my friend, I believe it’s time we return to Lord Shadow.”
  7. “I’ve found that feeding on carnivorous predators is a nice substitute, it’s never the same but it appeases the need.” Apollo replied while flicking his tail giving polite nods to some of the gawking batkin. “I’ve just come from the Princesses. They are aware of our situation and tentatively have accepted our alliance under certain terms. “An alternative way of feeding should be your first goal, that should help eliminate a lot of tension. Also, try and pick up on some human mannerisms, makes them a little less on edge when you are around them. Noctis can help with that he’s been learning the same things.” Apollo added absent mindedly as he walked inspecting the camp.
  8. Triton shot out of the ocean with a splash that hit Seven as he passed him. He landed on the deck of the ship soundlessly and completely dry. “What a refreshing trip. Felt good to travel by sea for once.” He said as he joined Oakly at the helm. “Are we expecting trouble immediately?” He asked Oakly.
  9. Apollo paused. “Echo, I trust you’ve been faring well. Please, show us what you have accomplished here.” He said professionally, eyeing the group with curiosity.
  10. Triton looked on calmly. “Not yet, but after learning from them the differential will only grow smaller. To be perfectly honest though Shade is completely different opponent then any other I have faced. It’s a battle of the minds, one illogical mis step would lose that battle. One thing I will not do is be the one to change his mind about joining us.” Triton replied honestly. The back of his mind shot him a warning as if he was being watched before the feeling passed. He shrugged it off excusing it as exhaustion.
  11. Triton studied Oakly trying to read his emotions before giving up. He had always excelled in anything with the mind. The heart was coming slowly. Arial had been trying to help him connect more since joining up with the dragons. “Look at it this way. It’s an even battlefield now. This group could have wiped us out at any moment since arriving. They are masters with their traits. We just received ours. Anything we can learn from them will only help us. The enemy will be rattled by this betrayal. If we appear united, it will only help us more.” Triton replied cooly showing no intention of hiding anything. He respected the warrior and admired him for voicing concerns.
  12. Triton stood up clearly lost in his mind. “I appreciate your confidence in my skill set. I will do my very best to see this dream come to fruition despite how unpopular it may be with some of my comrades. After all this will change the world as we know it. That is, if we win this war.” Triton bowed with respect and nodded to Shade once again before exiting the tent turning in for the night drifting into his thoughts. Apollo chuckled to himself, the sight of a batkin interacting so casually with equestrian soldiers gave him hope for the future. “Let’s go Noctis, it’s time to check in with the rest of Shadows followers.”
  13. Apollo bowed his head politely. “Of course, no more surprises. I intend on returning to the group now.” Apollo began to exit but stopped in the doorway looking back at the Princesses. “Any news on the Captain? I think it goes without saying that she needs to know what she’s walking into when she returns to the camp.” Apollo flicked his tail and comtinued out the door to meet Noctis. Triton felt his eyes go wide as mind began making countless connections with the new information. “I see, so the survival and continuation of your bloodline could’ve never happened under Maelstrom’s rule. This is sensitive and will have to be spread amongst the team with great care. Some may not take to the idea as well as others. I must ask, why was I chosen over my other companions to bear this knowledge?” Triton asked as he calmed his racing mind.
  14. “Yes of course Princess, I will not tolerate any disloyalty from or new warriors.” Apollo answered politely before turning to Luna to hear her input. Triton took another sip of his wine listening and analyzing every second of his time with Shadow. To him this was how he got to know people. Not so much focusing on what they have in common but how the Silent Fang member present himself and th way things were said. He sensed no dishonestly just as he expected. Triton set his cup down. “I appreciate you allowing me to speak with you. I don’t tend to be as warm and friendly as the others but I assure you, I am not an enemy.” Triton allowed himself to relax a little bit as the two continued in talking.
  15. Triton took the wine graciously with a hint of awkwardness. He found himself unsure of how to act given the fresh treaty. “It’s Shade. He teleported out not long ago and Leaf is gone as well. I came to you first because I have respect for Shade and would not want to see suspicion brought down on him unrightfully. That said can you think of any reason for him to sneak away or any reason Leaf would be in danger?”
