WoA - City StreetsStanding at the gates of Denerim, the wardens and their Qunari companion took in the sight of the impressive outer wall. Jhiidhas stared wide-eyed at the great stone structure as they were greeted by two guardsmen. They opened the gates and allowed the group to pass into the main streets where the city was teeming with busy voices from faces passing by. Several seemed to notice the Qunari woman right away, giving her awkward glances and pretending they weren't looking at all in the first place.
"Welcome to Denerim, Jhiidhas." Jasehnka said "Capitol city of Ferelden. Home to the rich humans, the poor elves, and a few dwarves here and there hawking their wares." Jhiidhas stared in awe at the many shops around and people idly trotting about, buying, selling, and chatting about seemingly meaningless things. She found it beautiful yet un-productive at the same time.
"Do these people not have work to do?" She asked as she noticed a small gathering of noble women giggling amongst themselves a
WoA - Sunset DanceAs night approached on the sixth day since leaving Vigil's keep, the wardens and their Qunari companion decided to set up camp early to rest their weary legs. Jhiidhas decided to climb a nearby tree and watch the sunset from her perch, reveling in the beauty that this new land had to offer. She returned to the ground when Terinel and Drake finished gathering wood for a fire.
"The sunset here is beautiful." She said as she approached Terinel lighting the fire. She sat near it to keep warm in the cooling air and watched the flames grow.
"I'm sure they're just as red and orange where you come from." Terinel replied.
"I never understood people's fascination with the sun setting." Drake interjected as he pulled some dried deer meat from a pouch. "It signifies the end of the day."
"It is so much more than that in the eyes of some, Drake." Jasehnka added. "It's a symbol of many things. The end of an era perhaps. Maybe the end of a life. Perhaps it signifies the last of light on one's life bef
WoA - To DenerimAs dawn broke the next morning, Jasehnka slowly stretched as she woke, moving the sheets around her as she tried to recall when she last slept in a real bed. She got up and began to stretch all her muscles as she routinely did every morning. Before she could even dress herself, there was a knock at the door. She cracked it open to see Jhiidhas standing there with a slight smile on her face.
"It is good to see you this morning, warden." She said cheerfully. Jasehnka sleepily tilted her head.
"You are rather chipper this morning, aren't you?" She replied. Jhiidhas smiled more.
"Your fortress is quite impressive. I have spent the morning studying its structure and greeting your fellow wardens, though some of them seem to be quite wary of me." Her face twisted into a look of concern for a brief moment. "The small one with the large beard is a bit invasive, however." She stated. Jasehnka couldn't help but start laughing as she heard this, which only served to confuse the poor Qunari further
WoA - Vigil's KeepHaving already said their goodbyes to the Dalish of the Wending Wood, the elven wardens left the camp with a few parting gifts of ironbark bows and a new companion, the Qunari dancer Jhiidhas. They were given a few provisions to hold them over for a few days, but they needed to stop back at Vigil's keep in order to be more properly prepared for their trip to Denerim. They had been out for three days already, and each night when they came to rest, Jhiidhas would ask more about the ways of the mainland, and in turn would teach the elves about Seheron. She learned of many things both in the camp and on the road and took part in tasting some of the foods that the mainland had to offer. But one question she did not ask that continuously nagged her was of the wardens themselves and how they contradicted what she had come to learn of elves of the mainland.
"Not much further now, Jhiidhas, and the great granite walls of Vigil's Keep will be rising over the ridge. Perhaps we can see about fitti
WoA - Darkspawn CaveTraveling back through through the woods, the wardens and the Qunari searched for clues at to where the darkspawn horde could have originated. The darkspawn were long gone from the area but the sense of their blood gres stronger as the wardens trekked deeper through the trees. Jhiidhas followed closely behind as they seemed to be able to detect the beasts through some unseen means.
"Commander, look." Terinel ushered the others over to duck behind some shrubbery. Beyond the trees and in what seemed to be the side of a cliff there was a large cave opening. There were no darkspawn to be seen, but the ominous cave reeked of evil intention as they slowly approached with weapons drawn.
"Jhiidhas, I want you to stay behind us but don't stray far. Keep close to Terinel for now. Teri, hang back, long range only. Unless of course I happen to be dying, then feel free to assist." Jasehnka led the way into the dark tunnel ahead, noticing the bloodied ground and drag marks in the dirt. There were dy
WoA - Dancer's BladeThe wardens and their new Qunari companion made the trek back to the camp within the hour, taking a bit of a slower walk as they swapped stories.
"So that is what a Grey Warden is?" Jhiidhas said, her eyes fixed on Jasehnka as she listened closely. "I have heard many things of these Grey Wardens. I did not know that your females were allowed to become Wardens as well." She said with honest interest.
"Yes well, it is rather invigorating. Slay some darkspawn here, help some people there. It's a bit quieter now than it was when the blight plagued us, not that I miss it mind you." Jasehnka said with a chuckle.
"The mainland is such a strange place. Training females to be warriors and wardens, these things would never be allowed on Seheron." Jhiidhas said with a bit of excitement in her voice. "How does one train an Imekari to be a Grey Warden? Are there different styles of combat between that and a soldier? Do they have rituals?" She had so many questions she wanted to ask the wardens, but
