Strange name, almost suggesting there was a city within a city. Many people came here, but not the sort that he would want to be around. The people here were... how should he put it... not as mature as he would have hoped. Many were so self-absorbed in their power to manipulate elements that they would boast around like they were super heroes, gangsters or some sort of cloaked anti-hero believing coolness outshines everything else. Worse was coming across people in their young adult years. To someone like him, walking around here unarmed was asking for trouble. That, or to be patronised by wannabe heroes.
The city itself have their good side, especially during the day time. With how many people were elementalists, one way or another, there was a lot more space here. A lot more... landmarks and open areas. Several rivers cut through the city in sections, with squares of grass and trees for those who liked to play with the earth. He would have considered finding an apartment here if the place werent so dangerous for him. That and if they weren't so expensive.
This time Sly was more properly equipped. If only they weren't so flimsy as what he was used to. An antique rapier made from bronze, and several throwing knives that, literally, looked like he had grabbed scrap pieces of metal and moulded them into the shape of knives. Honestly, he doubted they were enough to survive a full fight with any average citizen here.
But he was not alone. Walking across one of these grass squares with Lexia, the more barren ones, he stood in the shade to take a look around. Several shops were opening, wowing anyone who got close with fancy spectacles using their elemental magic, doing anything to attract whoever they could. All that, compensated with higher prices than what he saw sold in the inner area. It was still early in the morning, and they had just ate. Sly was not so sure why he chose this exact place, but maybe just seeing how others used their magic so freely about here could reawaken something in Lex.
How're you feeling now?
