>That troublemaker... Elis, I think her name was? Her fate after all these years is unknown even to me. But granted how quiet it's been, I'm guessing she's either deeper in Vina or left out of boredom. Though these are merely assumptions.

>Speaking of Vina: What are your predictions on possible conflict within the ruins?

> Has Vina always been in ruins?  Or do you remember it in it's non-ruined form?
>"It wasn't always this way, and I honestly prefer how it is now. The old inhabitants annoyed me."

>That troublemaker... Elis, I think her name was? Her fate after all these years is unknown even to me. But granted how quiet it's been, I'm guessing she's either deeper in Vina or left out of boredom. Though these are merely assumptions.
>"Ah yes, that was her name... Either way, I care little for her. I was merely curious if she was still present."

>Speaking of Vina: What are your predictions on possible conflict within the ruins?
>"The troublemaker at least knows her place, so unless she's somehow become particularly daring, she's the only thing of note in there -- assuming she's still present at all. -- The history of this place keeps things rather quiet for the most part."

>What does the city in Makai look like?
>"The capital? Honestly I haven't been there in over a millennium, so I would not be surprised if it resembled little of how I remember it. Pandaemonium should look more or less the same, though."
>'...Assuming she didn't remodel it on a whim.'

>As she floats down closer to Vina, she directs her flight path towards an abandoned shrine or temple of some sort on the outskirts of the city, nestled between several cliffs.
>'Hmm... The exterior hasn't changed much, at least, aside from some collateral damage from the encounter with that child...'

>"Why would I need one?" she raises an eyebrow in response.

>Did you ever encounter a blond child or woman with green hair?
>"I do believe the troublemaker was blonde, though she was far from a child despite how she acted... As for the other, I know nobody with green hair. Though I would not put it past Her to bring somebody with that trait into existence if she so desired. Is there a purpose to this question?"

>Waiting a moment for a response that doesn't come, she proceeds to walk into the ruined shrine, thoroughly inspecting the interior as she does so and searching for anything that might be amiss.
>"Hmm... Everything seems to be in order..."

>"Unfortunately, that would mean asking around, and people tend to stay away from the vicinity of Vina... If I knew for a fact that the troublemaker was still around I'd interrogate her, but I've noticed no signs of her presence."

>"Right, the capital..." Sariel says with a hint of disdain, "Hmm... memories are still a bit foggy, but I think I was planning something involving it before the shrine maiden showed up..."
>She shrugs, "Oh well, whatever I was planning can wait for now... Anyway, possible source of information aside, I'd prefer not approach it at my current level of strength if possible..."

>"There were in earlier iterations, though as far as I know the current one's sky is still a perpetual twilight haze with the only thing remotely resembling a sun being Hokkai."
>"However, Hokkai is also relatively stationary, so using it to determine the passage of time is unreliable."

>Or is there is a slow growing plant that you could use?
>"Plants generally do not grow around Vina. Nor am I one that usually takes note of their growth."

>Sariel takes to the air upon exiting the shrine, flying high enough to get a good look at the surrounding area.

<Hm... Perhaps I'll give things more time to recover from that little connection hiccup before resorting to less than favorable solutions...>


>What are you looking at?
>"I am trying to see if there is anybody foolish enough to be in the vicinity so that I may interrogate them for information. Failing that I intend to search for a traveler or a village. Whichever comes first."

>Sure enough, not finding anyone in the immediate area, Sariel begins to fly outward in a wide spiral, scanning the ground below as she travels...

<Restart the console since there's controllers plugged in that wanted this way, but their owners jumped ship.>
<Well that certainly is one possible solution... Honestly, I would've proposed that myself given time...>
<Anyway, with how loose the bond to your current charge is, a reset of the connection should be simple enough, though there will be a minor price to pay.>
<It's nothing major, but do know that as a consequence The Angel will no longer be an option when selecting a new charge to Guide. There would've been other penalties as well, but fortunately for you the weakness of your bond meant that they would not apply.>

<Anyway, with these facts in mind. Is a reset of the connection really what you desire?>
