@velaaru_of_illea: If the newcomer's act was a ruse, it was a masterful one. All evidence pointed to her being as young and inexperienced as she appeared to be, which made her presence here that much inexplicable. "Welcome to Eristes then, Vel'aaru," he boomed in response, his mouth widening in rather menacingly tusked smile. "I would introduce myself, but am I correct in assuming that you know who I am?"

@velaaru_of_illea: In combat, the ability to read an enemy's body language often meant the difference between life and death: the sudden widening of the eyes before an attack, a shift in the way the muscles tensed before a strike intended as a feint, and so forth. Xundar had not become arena champion merely by virtue of his immense physical prowess and ability to heal; he was also a consummate warrior, in every sense of the word. However, even a novice would have picked up on the sudden shift in the young alien's manner. She had taken notice of him, and it would be a safe bet that she recognized who and what he was.

The massive Eristian made no moves towards her; if her tense posture was any indication, that would likely cause her to bolt for the door, and then he would have to chase her down and risk hurting her before he could gain any information from her. Instead, he locked his hard eyes upon her face, and spoke, in as casual a manner as his booming, growling voice allowed, "What is wrong, young one? Is the milk of my world not to your liking?"

@velaaru_of_illea: The Eristian probably would not have taken any notice of the newcomer, had it not been for her request. For starters, manners such as hers were essentially unheard of in such an establishment, and the beverage she asked for so politely was highly unusual. Unless she came from a world where "milk" was a euphemism for some kind of cocktail, of course...

Sizing the young alien up, he realized that her appearance was equally incongruous with the surroundings. By all accounts, she seemed as though she had barely reached adulthood, if in fact she even had. She had a earnest expression, and was dressed in a manner more befitting some highly-civilized academy, not a cutthroat bar on a world that was more wilderness than otherwise. Still, he had seen enough in his years to have learned not to make judgement solely on appearance, and he remained where he was, curious to see how her request would play out.

@velaaru_of_illea: The reigning champion of the Battleworld arenas sat in the shadowed corner of the dingy cantina and glanced about the establishment dispassionately. He did not bother attempting to conceal his presence and identity; his reputation for battle prowess ensured that the common scum gave him sufficient personal space, and if a particularly arrogant or desperate ruffian decided to test him, well, what better way to scout out potential gladiators? Eristes' unregulated shanty towns were a veritable hive of the most dangerous and degenerate sentient life-forms in the universe, so he hoped to conscript a few of the more notable specimens into the upcoming bloodsport contests.

At the moment, however, his prospects were not encouraging. The taproom had seen its fair share of violence since he has arrived, but all of it had been fairly humdrum brawling, with no one demonstrating any notable skill or panache. The arena crowds were accustomed to exotic displays of battle prowess; any gladiator who was not, at the very least, a master of the craft would not hold their attention. Still, Xundar had the patience of a seasoned veteran. Taking a long drink of the potent local ale, he bided his time, his trained eyes continuing to evaluate all who came and went.

@la_espada: It's such an underrated weapon; so very simple in basic concept, but so brutally efficient in the hands of a master.
