"General Walks-the-Fire, for the Free Wherren," Hug'sh adds. "I have been avoiding the topic as I would much prefer that we prove ourselves with deeds, not words. But knowing who we are now, I hope you can see yourself to putting some faith in us, despite all." He smiles. "You sent for help. We're here. Let's get this done."

Angel looks at Hug'sh and shrugs.

"I tried big fella."

He sits back down, the casual manner not particularly affected - Angel's just Angel, and Angel is lazy until he needs not to be, and it also does a number on Vasa's bluster that Angel simply. doesn't. care.

"I'm not Bashakra'i. I'm Terran."

He lets that sink in for just a moment.

"My name is Angel Kesh. Some particularly creative types came up with "The Killing Wind" if that helps. Three years ago I got my introduction to the lovely little empire you all are fighting in a way that ended with with a dead Khiraba and a messed up knife. I was there for the liberation of Whiirr. Me and the rest of the 815 broke into the Repository of the Benevolent Spirits, kicked in the doors of the Halls of Tranquility and the Heavenly Purity itself, killed an Avatar of the Emperor and escaped through the Black Gate. Helped rediscover the Sheen and brought those charming little kill-bots back into the fold. Helped exfiltrate folks from several different Imperial-held worlds, have been a major stakeholder in an industrium under their nose some time now."

He motions to Hug'sh, Zaef and Arketta. "And these are my friends. Zaef Utari - Bloodwraith if you were an Arena fan, who is definitely better with a knife than I am. Arketta Quis - also known as Tarnisher of the Scarlet Banner, again if you're of a poetic mind, and the finest soldier I've ever charged headlong into the Black Gate with, and Hug'sh Walks-the-Fire. Whose story is long and complicated and full of nuance and tenderness that I don't think is required to finish making my point."

Vasa steps up. "You Bashakra'i come here and get yourselves killed all the time, I just figured you might need some advice. I've been dodging Turai sweeps and death squads for years, what the fuck have you done?"

Angel looks at Vasa evenly.

"That you've mistaken faking an innocent mistake to look like a team player trying to keep his nose clean in order to score a few cheap points with a potential point of friction between the two groups you're trying to fight as 'advertising my intentions' might make me ask the same question of you...sunshine."

"But if its going to take getting into a pissing match with you to get things moving, I'm happy to indulge you."

"Probably wouldn't be too bright to advertise your intentions officially, sunshine," Vasa says. "You sure you've done this before?"

Angel nods at Hug'sh's suggestion.

"I did ask Samal Ihan for a map of where she'd prefer me not stick my nose. That presents a potential avenue asking for a followup meeting. Either that, or filing a flight plan with her that's...mostly alright, but strays into a few places that," he nods to Vasa and Maarh, "you think might not set off alarms, but would be met with 'could you not?'."

Hug'sh nods as he fumbles his way through the haptics for adding their codes to his vox shortlist.

"Vox codes will do for now," he says. "We'll let you know if there are any urgent issues, but other than that, expect our next call when we are ready to move on the camp. In the meantime, we will leave you to your business and you may leave us to ours."

He looks over to Vasa.

"And when the hostages are safe, we will discuss Grinacanne's future in earnest."

Both Vasa and Maarh flick their vox codes to the group. "Done," Maarh grunts. "They're only on every hour, but we can set time and procedures for meeting up if we need to."

Hug'sh looks to Arketta and Angel. "Perhaps a former Turai or a charming noble will have an easier time of getting into Samal Ihan's good graces," he says, then turns to Zaef. "Which leaves us free to explore the wastes, I guess."

He looks to Vasa.

"We will need a way to stay in touch without meeting physically," he says. "Even if the Turai didn't follow you here, we don't need them associating you with us. One known encounter, we might play off as your desperate attempt to recruit well-funded offworlders into your struggle. I don't want to imagine what they'll do if they pick up our true scent, though."

"So," Vasa asks, having taken in Hug'sh's speech and Angel's contribution, "who's doing what? The Turai know who we are, they're not likely to pop 'round for a friendly chat."
