Evening on the 6th of the Scales of Judgement, 5152
Outside the Walls of Fort Fabelle
Ellis wasn't sure how he would be greeted at Fort Fabelle.
On one hand, it had been his 'mission' to ingratiate himself with Xanthe. He had accomplished it, and had made great strides not only with her, but with Feofil Peti and Ilithiya Fenn as well. He ought to be celebrated... But. But. He also knew that Pelagia had wanted him returned to the Fort several days ago. He was not intended to be gone for so long. Besides that, Corporal Evard and Officer Pencialo had likely passed on some... Less than favorable information to Lord Xista. Something about Ellis (accidentally!) shooting Pencialo with a crossbow. About him (less accidentally) shooting the God Tree to prevent the Coporal from killing, or capturing Xanthe. About how he had disappeared into nothingness.
He wondered what it looked like when people went through the God Tree.
"H-hail!" He called out at the gates, holding his crossbow up in a show of surrender. The guards looked at him confused, holding their weapons up, but unsure what to do. Here was a pale-skinned, red-headed human wearing the armor of the Attonians. They had never seen such a thing. "I-i am Ellis D-Danton! Sc-scout for Lord Xista. P-please--" One of the guards blanched in recognition and rushed at Ellis, knocking him down. As he did, the guard's helmet fell off, showing a familiar, angry face. Pencialo.
"Was hopin' you'd see the flare, traitor," Pencialo raised his mace, preparing to bring it down on Ellis' unprotected head, and all Ellis could do was hope that someone would stop the officer before it could connect with his skull. "L-lord Xis-xis-- Ah!" Was all he managed to call out.
