    "And to see old friends," Tarsus insists.

    Tsu elbows Tarsus in the side, giving him a look. He was carting slaves through last time he was here, don't get smart.

    Tarsus grunts, softly, wondering what the hell that was about. The last time he was through here he sat down to eat with Toshiro, and got along just fine.

    Oparal isn't very comfortable with the feeling of being surrounded by buildings, as if Tengutown itself was looming over her. Edgar, her raven familiar, senses her distress: "What's wrong? Where's the trouble?", he turns his head around suspiciously, looking for any source of danger Authentic Forum Dice-rollPerception - (1d20+13) [24]

    "It's nothing", Oparal reassures him, "just some bad memories from being trapped in cramped spaces."

    With a bit of a delay, Lavinia arrives as the conversation with the guard unfolds. 'Took me a while to realize it wasn't just an invitation for politeness sake.' she acknowledges with a slight blush.

    The man that had adressed them just now rubs his lightly stubbled chin as he mulls over Tsu's words.
    "Fine. Come on, we'll take you to our yoriki. You can explain yourselves to her." He says before jumping down from the balcony. Two other robed figures without apparent weaponry or armor join you as well and they escort you through the crowded streets, walking in a wedge formation before you and clapping their hands every once in a while to draw attention of bystanders and encourage them to move aside.
    After half an hour of walking through the cramped streets they open a door of a building marked with 'Crazy Wah's laundry.' and usher you inside. Only the spokesperson of the squad goes in with you, the rest stay outside. Inside there is a counter with an elderly looking gnome behind it giving you a dirty look. Off to the side are rows of clothes, washed and pressed and waiting for their owners to pick up. The leader bids you to wait a moment as he walks off, through a door in the back. It doesn't take long before he comes back with a tengu in tow. She's quite tall for a tengu and possesses the fluid grace of a fencer. Her beak, slightly longer than Tsu's has a certain elegance to it, no doubt aided by the intricate gold filigree painted on it. She carries no weapons and her hands and clawed feet are wrapped in clean bindings. As for the black and red silk robes she is wearing, they are beautifully made and embroidered. The tengu's golden eyes take you in but linger on Tsukohari and you swear you can feel the temperature drop several degrees when the two make eye contact.
    "My adjutant tells me you are Tsukohari of the White Star... With added muscle for back up. I am Yoruichi, Yoriki of this section. You wanted to talk about... Commerce?" she says with obvious dislike. The last word even sounds like an insult.

    Tarsus raises an eyebrow and folds his arms but says nothing.

    "...these are my friends, whom I wished to bring along on a visit. Unless Tengutown suddenly doesn't take visitors?" A look down and back up tells her all she needs to know about this particular bird, her gaze cold because of the preen and pomp present. Plus the height. "Either way, this is an offer that would benefit security, yes, although I was hoping to speak to someone a bit more...important."

    She shrugs. "Ah well, beggars can't be choosy. The offer was concerning procuring mithral and adamantine products at a hefty discount, brokered through White Star."

    "Who is it Yori?" asks a male tengu as he steps out of the back doorway, wiping his hands and a towel. His beak has a little chip on the right side missing as if from a recent injury but he stands straight and looks fit. When he sees who the visitors are he spreads his arms. "Well, if it isn't Tarsus of the White Star, along with some of his friends I see. And Tsukohari as well. My oarsmen have told me much!" Toshiro exclaims as he grabs Tarsus' arm and shakes it vigorously and gives Tsu a slight bow. Behind him Yoruichi folds her arms as she continues to glare.
    "They are here to propose a trade deal." the female tengu says dismissively.
