Zelda confirmed "Yes. The Zora who is bonding with Vah Ruta is the one I referred to as being missing from our discussion at the moment. He is prince Sidon. Given the lack of a date on my letters I do not know when he will show up. I can however say I have not received a rejection letter so I do assume he will be coming and based on Link's description of him it probably won't take very long ether."

Jessa of the Sheikah/Gerudo

That was when a very red, very LOUD looking Zora came in, breathing hard as if he'd either been swimming or running the whole way here from the Akkala region. Jessa yelped, darting behind Link to hide. Sure, she was confident around certain people, but this guy? He was too much even for her introverted self. 

"I am so sorry if I am late! I didn't know when I was supposed to be here!" The Prince of the Zora apologized, bowing low to Queen Zelda. His eyes immediately fell on the tall woman trying to hide behind his friend Link. 

"Link! Good to see you! Who's this trying to use you as a hiding place?" Sidon asked, gesturing to Jessa. She blushed as his teeth flashed at her in a sharp toothed smile and actually glinted at her. She turned as red as his scales at that. She pulled as low as she could, poking her fingers together as Trixie yipped, going over to check on her human and make sure she was OK. Right now, Jessa was wishing she was back in the desert so she could hide in Naboris's halls. She was really shy and couldn't even bring herself to greet the rather loud Zora. Even he could tell she was an introvert. 

"Ah, shy one are ya? Don't worry, I don't bite! Well, unless you're a Moblin or a Yiga Clansman." Sidon assured the girl, earning a shy giggle in response. Even to his Zora eyes, she was kinda cute. White hair on tan skin? He'd never seen that on a Hylian before. He suspected she was a rare hybrid - part Gerudo and no doubt part Shiekah from that white hair of hers and her hair style combination. It was a clever combination of Gerudo and Sheikah fashion. That was when Sidon felt something furry rub against his leg and looked down to find a red fox looking up at him. 

"Well, aren't you a cute little piece of fluff?" Sidon greeted, reaching down to let the fox sniff his hand before scratching behind her ear. Jessa peeked out from behind Link, watching Trixie's actions with the fishman. She giggled again when Trixie rolled over on her back for a belly rub, which Sidon happily obliged.

Yunobo was also a little startled with a strange red energy popping up to surround him for just a second before it disappeared as Yunobo realized the sharp toothed thing that randomly burst into the room was just a really hyper and kind of loud fish man.

Link told Jessa "It's ok. He's a little loud but he wasn't kidding about not being bitey. If anything Sidon can be a little too friendly."

Zelda said "Teba, Yunobo and Jessa, meet Prince Sidon of the Zora. Prince Sidon of the Zora meet Teba, Yunobo and Jessa." She then gave the Zora a rundown of what she had just discussed about the divine beasts with the others so far including that these other people with her had each also caught a divine beast's fancy.

Jessa still felt embarrassed by the whole thing. Trixie seemed to like the Zora after all. She was running around in her little "I want to play now" dance, catching her tail in her mouth and giving Sidon the cute fox eyes. 

"I get it, you want to play, don't ya?" Sidon asked, producing a small rubber ball from his belt pouch. "Lucky for you, I come prepared." He told the fox, throwing it for her. Trixie yipped happily and immediately dashed after the ball, darting past Jessa to get it and running back to the Zora prince. Jessa couldn't help giggling at her fox's antics.

"Her name's Trixie, she's mine." She told Sidon, still blushing at her own response to his entrance. Sidon grinned that sharp toothed grin at her in response. 

"Trixie huh? A cute name for an adorable little fox." He mused, taking the ball from Trixie and tossing it again for her, watching the streak of red dash after it and bring it back to him. Jessa glanced at Link. 

"I think Trixie might have the same problem as Sidon. I think she can be too friendly sometimes. Though you have to admit, the results are adorable." Jessa mused, glancing between Link and the Prince. She couldn't help but wonder if he had a girlfriend yet. That turned Jessa's face red again when Sidon winked at her as he threw the ball for Trixie a third time, letting the Fox chase after it

Zelda said "Should I even bother wondering why he's just carrying a ball around randomly?"

Link told her "Nah. Just accept that it's a thing. Don't bother wondering where he got rubber eather."

Zelda told him "I assumed he or someone else just found it like that one rubber suit of yours."

Yunobo asked "Goro. What even is rubber? Looks weird."

Zelda told him "One of the things people use to know how to make but don't anymore. There's some items made of it still....around. If you look h.ard enough or get lucky."

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito

‡ Teba ‡

Teba sort of played 'silent listener' to alot of the ensuing conversation, as he usually wasn't a big talker anyways. What he found interesting was the other's accounts of their experiences with their Divine Beasts. Yunobo described it as a sudden obsession, which sort of fit how it had happened with Medoh, except Medoh wasn't NEARLY as clingy to him as that. On the other hand, Jessa's account of Naboris intrigued him. Hearing their beasts. He himself wasn't entirely sure if he had experienced that with Medoh or not. He had just assumed that Medoh's moods tended to be obvious, but now he wondered if they weren't as obvious to everyone else as they had been to him. He was a tad disapproving of Jessa's laughing fit at Yunobo for not understanding the Beast's link like she had, however he refrained from saying anything about it simply because he didn't see it worthwhile to start anything.

Sidon's entrance hadn't scared him quite so bad as Link's had. The sudden clatter had gotten him to look over and see the Zora prince himself barrelling into the room and greeting everyone in a whirlwind. (Well, being greeted for by Link.)

"Greetings." Teba quietly said with a small nod to Sidon, not at all minding that the man was already distracted with other things. In fact, since Sidon was distracting mostly everyone else in the room at the moment, Teba saw this as a good time to stroll over to Queen Zelda and have a direct conversation with her.

"So... You truly think everyone in this room is going to be selected by the Divine Beasts to be their riders? I mean.... I can't say I'm nearly as acquainted with Medoh as the other two are. Granted... Sidon just came in here, but he's directly related to the last champion that Ruta had. I'd have to imagine they're already close since they already knew eachother." he quietly commented, turning so that he was facing Sidon and Jessa while standing beside Zelda. "The most anything that's really happened with me and Medoh is that he follows me to the Flight Range sometimes. Mostly just.. he watches me. I catch him doing it sometimes. I was more than a little unsettled when it first started happening." he said.

Zelda told Teba "It may not be 100% certain for a few of you yet. But from the sound of it at the very least Naboris and Rudania appear to have made their decisions. You and Medoh may still be in the trial phase but if he has been eyeing you that does imply that he deems you at least interesting enough to consider. If he continues to show interest in you I have no doubt it'll be you he links with."

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Master Galroh & random Yiga scout dude

‡ Teba ‡

Teba placed a wing hand under his chin thoughtfully. "Makes me wonder just how awake they were during the Blight thing. I suppose it was as far as being fully conscious but unable to control yourself. Or if they could control themselves, it took a lot of willpower to do it." he said.

£ Master Galroh £

Meanwhile, off in the Yiga Hideout......

Master Galroh was polishing one of his windcleavers when a Yiga footsoldier suddenly teleported right in front of him. Being a Yiga Blademaster himself, this wasn't nearly as alarming to him as it might've been to most people.

He calmly looked up, then said "Randi. What do you want?"

"Galroh, sir! There's something weird going on with the Divine Beasts! Vah Medoh's been spotted circling above the Hyrule ridge area!" the Yiga footsoldier known as 'Randi' replied.

Galroh paused a moment, before questioning "...Is that it? ...Hyrule ridge really isn't that far from Rito Village for something like a Divine Beast. Is it heading PAST there?"

Randi slowly replied "Well... no.. It doesn't seem to go past there. Last I saw it was circling back towards Rito Village."

Galroh sat there for a few seconds, before saying "Randi, I'd hardly count this as a 'crisis level' situation. Couldn't it just be... flying around?" he suggested.

Randi stood there for a second before slowly replying "Well.. Yeah, I suppose so."

Galroh just... stared at him for several moments, then shrugged and said "Why did you feel the need to lead me on like this was actually important then??"

Randi fidgeted, quickly saying "But it's not just Medoh! It's Rudania too!"

"Where exactly is Vah Rudania?" Galroh pressed in a tired tone.

"Hyrule field. More specifically the part right in front of Hyrule Castle." Randi said matter-of-factly.

Galroh was stunned into silence for a few seconds before exclaiming "And you didn't think to LEAD with that?!"

Randi raised a hand to his chin thoughtfully, but Galroh continued before he could say anything else. "Randi! GO get me Draiil and Zeraena. DON'T say anything other than 'Master Galroh wants to see you'. Nothing more than that, nothing less. Do you think you can manage to do that?" Galroh questioned.

Randi immediately nodded. "Yeah! Yeah, yeah, I got it!" he quickly said, then went off to find the two he'd been told to get.

Eventually Randi found Zeraena and so Zeraena was with him when he came up and told the Yiga clansman named 'Draiil' that Master Galroh wanted to see him.

Yunobo noted "I however am going to not think too deeply about that. Goro. Sounds kind of like a litteral nightmare."

Link said "Oh, totally. A nightmare for both the beasts and their champions. Do you guys know about the fact that the other champion's spirits got wrapped up in that blight situation too? Did I have the forethought to mention that when explaining the situation. I know I told at least Sidon and his dad but still."

Yunobo said "I actually saw Lord Daruk's ghost so.... yeeeaaah. He had a very friendly smile. Goro. By the way."

Link agreed "The champions took the whole situation very well considering. I mean the fact that none of them were insain was impressive enough but most of them acted basically like they always had. They didn't seem really tramatized or anything."

Yunobo said "I'm not entirely sure Rudania got out of it without being tramatized though. Goro. Again, he still hates our canons which suggests he at least remembers what happened during the malice situation. ....Poor Rudania. Goro. Poor all of them."

Link sort of griminced then said "Yeeaaah. I kind of regret having to get so rough with the divine beasts. A situation with a sick and agressive divine beast does not leave a lot of options."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

-Draiil-

Draiil was a little scared at first when told who wanted to talk to him. He hoped to every g.od ever that the man wasn't somehow displeased with him. Still, he had been summoned and maybe it wasn't about Draiil having done something unsatisfactory. So....he went to meet Galroh. "You...called for me Sr.?" Draiil asked.

 

 

((Ok. A Yiga clansmen named Randi is somehow very funny to me. I don't know why. XD))

Jessa of the Sheikah/Gerudo and Prince Sidon

Trixie came back to Sidon with the rubber ball in her mouth yet again, this time refusing to give it back. Jessa rolled her eyes, walking over and took it from her fox. She walked over and gave it to Sidon. 

"Sorry about that. Once Trixie gets ahold of a new toy, sometimes she refuses to give them back." She apologized, earning a hearty laugh from the Zora prince. 

"It's perfectly fine! I heard one of the people coming to the palace had a pet of some kind. That's why I brought it. I figured if it was a canine, it would be a good idea to bring it along. My sister got it 100 years ago when they still knew how to make rubber. I've got loads of them back home." Sidon replied, smiling down at the young Gerudo hybrid. He was easily a head and a half taller than she was 

"Thank you Prince Sidon, that's very generous of you." Jessa replied, earning a happy bark from Trixie as the fox snatched the ball from her and ran over to Link, giving him the "Play with me now!" look. 

"Please, just Sidon is fine!" The Zora replied, ruffling the girl's hair in response, earning a small shove from her. 

"By the way Link, Trixie won't stop begging until you play with her. She's stubborn like that." She told the Champion, Maxilar's skull now resting safely in her backpack was starting to stir. "Oh! Hold that thought. It must be close to sunset because Maxilar's starting to wake up. I better get outside and get his bones out so he can wake up properly." Jessa noted, seeing the bones of the Stallhorse start to move

Because of the fact that the topic changed so quickly even Link with his slight time changing abilitys couldn't really keep up enough to reply to the Trixie thing. Instead he just said "I gotta see this." on the Stallhorse related one.

Yunobo however said "I...Goro...I'm good here." staring at the bones with that same look of terror as earlyer. 

Link said "You sure? I mean it's probubly not nearly as scary as you're imagining."

"IT'S CREEPY!" Replied Yunobo.

Zelda added "Honistly I sort of feel the same way Yunobo. A walking d.ead thing doesn't sound very sanitary to me."

Yunobo told her "I'm....not sure we're freaked out for the same reasons at all."

Link said "Well. I won't force you to mess with the bone horse if you don't want to mess with the bone horse. I will say you should think about it though because you might be missing out on something and I really doubt it COULD hurt you even if it wasn't tame."

Yunobo was still thinking about it when Link moved to follow Jessa.

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Galroh & Zeraena

‡ Teba ‡

Teba was highly interested to hear about the champions' ghosts. ~'Does that mean Champion Revali's ghost was up there on Medoh, too?'~ he thought to himself, however the conversation was already moving on so he didn't bother asking about that now. He could always do so later.

 

On the subject of Stalhorses, Teba noted "A Stalhorse IS a bit odd of a choice of steed. You can only make use of it at night. I guess the upside is that it's easy to take with you and easy to take care of."

 

¥ Zeraena ¥

Zeraena accompanied Draiil to Master Galroh's quarters (well, more or less just went there the same time as Draiil did) and silently stood beside him.

 

"Yes, I did. I called for the both of you." Galroh confirmed, not bothering to stand up. "I want you two to go out and investigate what's going on with the Divine Beast in Hyrule field. I've been told both Rudania and Medoh are out of place at the moment. Firstly... I just want you to make sure these reports are true, and if they ARE true, find out why they're there." he told them. "You're to stay near eachother so you can have eachother's backs."

Draiil of the Yiga clan

Draiil said "Wait....one of the divine beasts is in HYRULE FEILD? That IS weird. We will go over there as soon as physically possible." he wasn't sure about how he felt with being randomly partnered up for this task as he knew the usual reasons for him being stuck with someone was a silent judgment on him. Then once the two left the leader's room he turned to his partner and said "I think we should probubly bring faries. Not because I think we're going to get attacked, after all this is a spy mission not an attack thing, but the thing about divine beasts is....they can sense magic. I'm probubly being a little paranoid since we probubly aren't any different from any sheikah but I don't want to be stepped on in case we do happen to smell like something suspicious. Having something else magic related on us might cover up anything the beast would consider bad."

Jessa of the Sheikah/Gerudo and Prince Sidon

Sidon grinned, going to follow the Sheikah/Gerudo girl to see this creature. He could see the courtyard from the window and got an idea. 

"Hey Yunobo, why don't you watch from the window with Queen Zelda? That way you can still see but still feel safe. The courtyard should be big enough for a Stallhorse." The Zora Prince suggested, nodding to the window overlooking the courtyard. Jessa looked back to see what was taking her small crowd as Trixie bounced out ahead of them with a happy yip. 

"I think that might be a good idea. And in case you were wondering Your Majesty, I bathe Maxilar like you would any other horse. I also use a cloth saddle so both of us are comfortable. Speaking of which, I better get him outside before he decides to wake up in here. Sun's going down and he can only wait for so long." Jessa agreed, feeling the bones rattling away in her backpack as she went outside and set it down, not bothering to wait for a reply from the Queen or the Goron. 

"You may want to stand back. Maxilar likes to put on a show." Jessa advised, Sidon immediately stepping back, pulling a couple curious castle staff with him as he did so. A small crowd gathered, having heard of the Gerudo hybrid with the Stallhorse. That was when the magic started to happen. A cold wind swirled, easily picking up the bones from the open backpack. Starting with the horse skull, the creature formed bone by bone, starting with the neck, chest and forelegs, going to the spine, ribcage and rear end, scraggly hairs for the tail appearing as it formed, the skeletal horse rearing back on his haunches before slamming to the stones of the courtyard. That earned an eye roll from his rider, who was used to his antics by now. 

"Do you always have to be so dramatic when you wake up?" She deadpanned, earning a snort and pawed hoof in response from the demonic looking creature as the castle staff scattered to get away from the beast. Jessa was used to this sort of thing. Typical civilians? Not so much. She gave his skeletal nose a pat. "OK, ok big guy. Anyways, we've got some new friends." Jessa told the animal, seeing the glowing eyes of the creature eyeing Link and the others suspiciously. Like Trixie, she used Maxilar as a living trouble detector, but he was more wary than Trixie was and tended to be less trusting of Hylains and other beings that weren't Jessa. She glanced over to see the look on Sidon's face. It was classic, just classic. It was a full on "WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED" face. Jessa doubled over laughing, leaning on Maxilar for support. 

"OH MY HYLIA! I wish I had a camera right now! Your face Sidon! SO PRICELESS!" Jessa crowed, actually falling on her back with laughter. It wasn't unusual for her to get weird reactions with Maxilar, but this was just too funny.

 

(Please note, the link on the word "face" is what I think Sidon's WTH face looks like)

Zeraena ~ Female ~ Sheikah (Yiga Clan) & Birdman Teba

‡ Teba ‡

Teba casually sauntered over to a window after half of the group went outside to watch Maxilar reconstruct himself. He was a little interested just to watch the scene, though the Stalhorse itself wasn't anything too aweing to him. He'd actually seen quite a few stalhorses during nighttime flights through the snowy Hebra mountains.

 

¥ Zeraena ¥

Zeraena followed Draiil out with sort of the same feeling as he had. She didn't like being paired up with somebody as usually that meant the guy pairing her suspected that she'd get herself killed if she wasn't paired with somebody. Nonetheless, she knew it'd be worse for her if she didn't obey their instructions. But that didn't mean she wouldn't stretch the rules a bit if she had to.

 

When Draiil turned to her and suggested the fairy thing, she paused for a moment before saying "...Alright. That actually sounds like a smart idea. I wonder if anyone around here already has some in a bottle or something somewhere. Because if not, you're the one who'll be doing the fairy roundup."

 

((Awww noo it's fine! It doesn't feel rushed at all yes.))

Zelda and Yunobo decided that Jessa's idea was a good one. Zelda wasn't afraid of the horse (just grossed out) so she could've gone outside with the group but she didn't really need to be close enough to possibly be touched by the thing she found gross and she decided that Yunobo might benifit from the companionship. So...mostly for Yunobo's sake she hung out with him and Teba watching through a window. Yunobo told Zelda "I'm sorry for being so freaked out by Jessa's pet. I know it's not very fitting for a divine beast rider."

Zelda told him "We all have to start somewhere. Besides. I know when you are actually required to be brave you are capable of it. Link would have had a lot more trouble clensing Rudania of malice if that was not the case."

Yunobo told her "I still can't believe I did that. I mean...I remember doing it but when I look back on it.....I don't understand how I was able to do it."

Zelda told him "Sometimes that's the way things work. You think you aren't even capable of something and then when you are given no other choice you find yourself able to do things you wouldn't have dreamed of."

Yunobo smiled slightly before looking back out over the courtyard. He decided Zelda was a good queen and he was happy for the Hylians to have someone like her.

 

 

Meanwhile Link was right up in the action. He asked Jessa "Is this a can pet them imeedeitly sort of animal or a, aprouch carefully sort of animal? He looks a little unsure of me but you're the expert here."

 

 

 

 

Draiil agreed "No problum."

Some time after that they poofed somewhere near Hyrule feild not wanting to be so close that the divine beast or someone else would 100% see them do so. Draiil poofed into a disguse only after entering the area so he might have another shot with the same outfit if he HAD been seen and had to try again. The sheikah tec machine he had the most success with was a gaurdian named Fred so...while a divine beast and a gaurdian were quite different he sort of hoped some of the same stratigys for safe interaction would work as they were....sort of related. With his fairys in his pocket somewhere he decided to just....get Rudania's reaction to him out of the way and walked by the beast at a distance he hoped was respectful. Vah Rudania had been sort of pacing with bordom and slight concern for Yunobo after feeling those few moments where Yunobo got scared during the meeting. The beast was always a little frustraited whenever he was too big to be involved in something potentally interesting even without concern for a friend. So....he really didn't have much to do at the moment and when Draiil walked by examining him Rudania turned his head to look right back at what unknown to him was a Yiga clansmen.

Draiil flinched when the divine beast actually looked at him scared for a second that the jig was up but he wasn't going to give up the ghost too easilly. He reminded himself that Rudania was one of the more likely beasts to activly turn his head twords someone who caught his attention and he noted the beasts feet were not on fire yet. 

Not too worryed about looking scared because....Rudania was likely use to that Draiil said "Don't mind me Mr. Vah Rudania. I'm just looking."

Rudania did kind of mind him though. He came from a tourist heavy area and so he knew better then to let someone who was interested in him go unwatched. Tourists were not always respectful. Plus Rudania saw it as only fair that if he was getting stared at he got to stare back.

Draiil noted "You're a long way from home, aren't you big fella?" 

Rudania just continued staring though he wondered why this random man was talking at him that way. They didn't know each other. ....Maybe it was just one of THOSE people.

A little uneasy from the continued staring but taking solstice in the fact that Rudania hadn't roared at or tryed to stomp him Draiil continued twords the castle (presumably with his partner). Rudania would not be giving him any answers.

He whispered to Zeraena "For the record, we're tourists. Ok?" 

They would not actually get into the castle before something happened.

Sidon shook himself and watched as Link had an exchange with the rather brave Gerudo woman. He couldn't help falling in love with the girl. 

"Approach slowly. Like I said, Maxilar's wary of new people. It'll take awhile to earn his trust." Jessa advised Link, producing a few cubes of cane sugar and slipped them into his hand. "Try giving him those. Cane sugar cubes are his favorite treat. He's got a real sweet tooth for a skeleton. It should help." She hissed, nodding to the animal as she saw Maxilar's expression change to anticipation when he saw the treats she passed to Link.

Link nodded then turned his attention to the horse. He held a cube out on a flat hand and said "Hey buddy. Want a yummy?" Link did not aprouch very closely prefering instead to let Maxilar come to him."

Jessa smiled, watching Maxilar carefully. Sometimes he'd accept treats right away, sometimes he'd reject them if they were from a stranger. It all depended on how wary he was around the new person. She was pleased to see Maxilar merely sniff Link before accepting the sugar cubes. The Stallhorse's red glowing eyes were shining with delight, though that would be unclear to an untrained eye. Jessa knew Maxilar's modes and how to warn someone when he was going to be aggressive. 

"I think he likes you. He doesn't always take treats right away when it comes to strangers. Especially when I'm not around. He's used to different reactions from people when he wakes up. Usually, people run and hide. But the kids back home in both Kakariko and Gerudo Town are used to him by now. He loves giving them rides. He's got a specially designed cloth and leather saddle to keep things comfortable." She told Link. She was pleased to see Maxilar so calm around all these strangers. Though, seeing Trixie run between his legs then around Link's ankles before plonking down beside him probably helped ease the Stallhorses's mind. Maxilar stompped his hoof a little in a way that said "OK, I'll trust you, for now. But if you do anything to hurt my human, I hurt you, got it pal?" in Stallhorse. Jessa sighed and glared at the horse in response. 

"Hey, no attitude from you mister! We're around celebrities! Be polite!" Jessa scolded, earning a snort from the animal in resposne. Jessa rolled her eyes.

"Sorry about that Link. Maxilar was just calling you out. He's a bit on the protective side when it comes to my safety." Jessa apologized, glancing over at the Champion as she spoke. Considering how she rescued her friend, she couldn't blame him for being protective of her.

"Yeah, he's a bit overprotective like that. He's a sweetheart once you get to know him. He's more comfortable around kids since they tend to be more open minded. Adults...it all depends on how Trixie reacts to them. He looks to her as his example, but he also keeps her in check to keep her from trying to get a Moblin or Bokoblin to play with her." Jessa agreed, glancing over to the open throne room window. 

"Hey Yunobo! You can come out now if you want. Maxilar's perfectly fine around Gorons. He's used to them being around back home." She called, gesturing for the shy Goron to come over and meet the stallhorse. Maxilar barely glanced at the Goron and looked away as if to say "Yeah, he can come over if he wants. So can the lady with the short hair." when he saw him and Zelda in the window. She had more cane sugar cubes ready if the Goron wanted to try approaching her Stallhorse.

Yunobo called "Thanks but I think I'm good over here! Goro."

Link said "He might need to watch us a little while longer. Yunobo's a little anxious."

Zelda however was starting to be overrun by her curiosity. Yunobo seemed relitivly ok now so she came outside to get a closer look at things though she still kept a respectful distance back. She knew it was Yunobo who was offered to come down rather then her but she wasn't planning on trying to touch the horse anyway.

Jessa smiled, seeing Zelda come over. Maxilar looked over, the Stallhorse nickering in greeting before going over to Zelda. It was as if he knew Jessa admired the other woman. He looked down at her with those glowing red eyes of his. Jessa slid over, standing beside the Queen and held out a handful of sugar cane cubes. 

"These are his favorite. You don't have to touch him directly, but you should try giving him some. I think he likes you." Jessa advised, watching how her stallhorse friend stomped his hoof as if trying to say "Hey dude, I'm not gonna bite. I think we can be friends." She smiled, watching her horse's behavior carefully. He wasn't used to being around so many strangers. She couldn't blame Yuonbo at all for being nervous. Good thing she always kept sweet foods handy for Maxilar and Trixie at all times

Zelda was very much uncomfortable. But she wasn't one to pass up trying new things. She sort of...stiffly took the treat and offered it with as little of her hand touching the food as possible in the hopes that would also cause as little of the stallhorse to touch her as possible.

"Oh hey! You chose to join in the fun! Good for you!" Link told his long time companion.

Zelda told him "Your definition of fun as always been skewed." which only earned an impish grin from the champion along with a comment of "Says the lady who tried to make me eat a live frog that one time."

"OK, that story I have to hear!" Jessa insisted as Maxilar took the treats, respecting the fact the Queen was uncomfortable with him. He tried his best not to touch her skin directly, only grazing her enough to take the offered treats. He looked at Jessa as if asking "Did I do OK?" as Trixie trotted over to sit at Zelda's heels, looking up at the Queen to reassure her and to say "Hey, Maxilar's a nice guy. You can trust him," in Fox. Jessa smiled at that. 

"I think Trixie's trying to say that you can trust Maxilar. She can tell you're nervous." Jessa translated. She couldn't wait to tell her mother that she was becoming friends with the QUEEN of HYRULE and the CHAMPION LINK! She'd write her mother first thing in the morning when she woke up.

Zelda said "It's not about me worrying about being bit. Really it isn't."

Link urged "Frog story?"

Zelda said "Alright. It was for science. The frog involved was an ingreedient that could be used to boost one's stamina to a remarkable extent. I wanted to test that."

Link added "While it was still alive....not cooked."

Zelda told him "Don't even pretend you suddenly have standards! I have SEEN you eat raw eggs and meat!"

Link said "I draw the line at still moving."

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Zeraena

‡ Teba ‡

Teba glanced over when he noticed Zelda drifting out to go see Maxilar as well, leaving him alone with Yunobo. For the boy's sake, Teba remained with him just so he didn't feel like he was excluded.

He watched the scene down below for a little bit, before glancing over at Yunobo. "So. Is this your first time away from your home village?" he casually asked.

¥ Zeraena ¥

Zeraena had followed Draiil, except she'd poofed there already in her disguise as she wasn't quite as cautious as Draiil was. Now, she HAD let him walk by Rudania first just because.. she didn't mind using him as shark bait. But once Draiil had been there for several seconds without a trouncing, she calmly came walking by to join him even though he hadn't finished his testing the disguises just yet. She acted as casual as possible, and in fact.. definitely did seem ridiculously calm considering they were just walking by something that could crush them like ants and had motive to do so.

When Draiil informed her that they were tourists, she gave a 'heh' before whispering "You seriously had this all planned out, didn't you?"

Yunobo admitted "Yeah. Goro. It is actually. I'm not even use to how cold it is down here."

 

 

 

 

Draiil whispered "No. But tourist is my default choice and it's worked very well for me so far."

That's when Rudania started acting weird. He suddenly turned away from the castle and looked off at seemingly a random direction. Something was building in the air though only the divine beasts nearish to the area could pick it up. Rudania didn't recodnise the magic despite the fact that whatever it was, it was very powerful and because he didn't know what was happening he didn't really like it. He didn't try calling for Yunobo as he didn't want to get the kid involved just yet. Whatever this is it might be dangerus. The beast walked a little ways away (well, a little ways for a divine beast) from Hyrule castle trying to track down the source of the anomaly.

Draiil turned around as well to watch Rudania head off. "Ok...I don't know what it's doing but I gotta watch." doing his best to try to keep up with the beast without using abnormal amounts of speed.

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Medoh & Zeraena

‡ Teba ‡

Teba gave an amused snort at the cold comment, replying "Funny. If anything, it's a bit on the warmer side for me. Not unbearable, mind you, but different. I've been out of Rito territory a few times before, never this far though. Never really had a reason to come out this far before."

¥ Zeraena ¥

Zeraena also followed, not being quite as discreet in her following. She only kept a LITTLE ahead of Draiil purely out of competitiveness' sake. "You think he's spotted whatever he came down here for?" she asked Draiil.

⇔ Vah Medoh ⇔

Vah Medoh was further away from the anomaly than Rudania was, however he felt an odd sort of something too. Curious, he started to fly over to see what was making the big weird magic reading he was sensing.

[Hey Rudania. Do you see anything weird going on down there?] he messaged Rudania, purely because he was closer. Granted Medoh could see just fine from where he was but he also meant if Rudania FELT anything. Rumbling ground, perhaps.

"So this is sort of new to you too huh?" Yunobo said. Then he looked off towards the distance. Something didn't feel right. But he wasn't quite linked with Rudania strong enough to immediately know what the feeling meant. "Do you...Goro...feel weird right now?" he asked Teba.

 

 

"Maybe." Draiil said continuing "Though if that's the case it's weird that Rudania was facing the castle before this."

 

 

 

Rudania sent to Medoh [Yikes! You feel it too huh? I don't know what it is. There's just....something going on."

As Rudania watched a patch of air seemed to ripple like a pair of curtains being slowly pulled aside. Strange symbols swirled from a hole that was torn in the very fabric of various dimensions. Two shapes were thrown forth onto the ground before the portal vanished. One was some sort of strange black bird with batlike wings and a ring of feathers around its head which were the only feathers on it. It oozed dark magic that immediately made Rudania distrust the thing. Beside it was a more familiar form but somehow not as well. [Is it.....a goron?] Rudania asked Medoh as he just wanted to ask literally anyone what he was looking at. It did look like a goron but its colors were off. The rocks on its back were white like its hair, it had skin on the yellow side of the goron skin color spectrum but it was a weird dirty yellow Rudania had never seen in a goron before. They had brighter yellow tattoos all over them too. A pair of them on the being's arms even featured the goron symbol. [I think....it IS a goron. A goron just came out of nothing!] Rudania added just before the strange bird started to sturr. Now, Rudania was one who often jumped to conclusions. The only dark magic he knew of was Ganon's brand and so he did not notice a subtle difference in the stuff coming from the bird. Rudania figured this creature was a monster the goron had been in some sort of fight with or something. He tried to step on it though luckily for the creature had not decided that was what needed to be done before the thing was awake enough to dart into the air. Now, the bird did not take kindly to Rudania's attempt to squish him. Weirdly it was more insulted then scared. With a honk of war it started pulling some of the same shenanigans that Spazz had done to Medoh some time ago. Of course this threw Rudania into a whole fit of angry. The divine beast tryed to pinch the not so divine beast's wings and tail with his face and slammed his tail every which way. The grass was alight from Rudania's now on fire feet.

Then the goron woke up too and for a second was stunned into silence before he realized that despite having no idea what was going on he needed to take action. "FLOOFY!" he called before he started throwing rocks at the ridiculously massive lizard in a desperate attempt at a distraction. It worked though more because Rudania was just confused by the goron's behavior rather then any sort of harm done. [The goron is....throwing things at me. AND THERE'S AN EVIL BIRD!] Rudania told his brother hoping to share the confusion as he paused to wonder why. He missed the fact that the bird had a saddle that also had the goron symbol on it (and to his credit such a detail is tiny to him) so he didn't connect the dots that this bird might belong to the goron.

 

 

Draiil of course stayed WAY back not wanting to get in the middle of whatever that was. In the chaos he was able to spot something the beasts missed because of residual magic basically covering the "scent". He couldn't tell what it was but it was glowing and about the size of a large plate if quite a bit thicker. He pointed it out to his partner and said "What do you think that is?"

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Medoh & Zeraena

‡ Teba ‡

Teba furrowed his brow, then really thought on it for a moment. "Now that you mention it.... Sort of. I can't really put my talon on it though. Maybe it's from meeting all of these new people?" he suggested. He wasn't quite sure of that for himself as he didn't really think he got too anxious about meeting new people, but he couldn't be sure of what it was. "Or maybe it's homesickness." he added after a few more moments of reflection.

⇔ Vah Medoh ⇔

Medoh was just as surprised as Rudania when a random pair of very odd looking creatures were just thrown out of a hole in reality. He quickly tried to cross-reference the anomaly with the same ones the dragons tended to disappear into, but it didn't seem to do much good. He looked like a completely different thing.

Medoh circled above the brief 'fight' scene, watching everything and finding it MUCH easier to get a closer look after Rudania stopped thrashing about. Now, he didn't like the dark magic that bird was throwing off any more than Rudania did, but he wanted to approach it with a little more of a plan than that.

Believe it or not Medoh actually had a much better read on the situation Rudania did BECAUSE of the distance between him and the two new creatures. For Medoh's eyes could zoom to an insane extent, far better than they could focus on close-up things. So as Medoh circled, he caught a glimps of the saddle on the evil bird's back.

[Rudania! The bird.. has a saddle. It's got the Goron symbol on it, too. Could the Goron be in cahoots with the dark creature?] Medoh sent Rudania, sort of subtly implying 'that Goron is somehow an evil goron' but not saying it outright for fear of Rudania's reaction.

¥ Zeraena ¥

Zeraena also kept a safe distance from Rudania as she really didn't want to end up stepped on, even if a fairy could heal her afterwards. When Draiil pointed out the shiny, she said "Who knows! But it's either gonna get squashed by Rudania or taken by that weird Goron and his bird thing if we don't get it first!"

Rudania sent [WHAT? Gorons should not be with evil things!] turning to look at Medoh in shock.

The goron took the moment of distraction to whistle between two of his fingers like he was calling a horse. The bird swooped down to land and the goron hoped on before it took off again. "Thanks for finally noticing me calling you! Let's get the heck away from whatever those things are!" 

Floofy disagreed wanting to poke Rudania again but the goron was so urgent about getting away that the bird realized its companion was legitimately scared. They headed off in a random direction away from Rudania and Medoh.

Rudania sent [They're leaving? What do we do? Something with magic like that can't just be ignored right?]

Because things had calmed down a little with the divine beasts questioning each other about the situation Draiil took what might be his only chance and ran in to g.rab the weird item before darting off. He told his partner "Keep watching. I'm getting this back to base." then ran somewhere to poof. Rudania did not notice. He was too focused on the issue at hand.

 

 

 

 

 

As Yunobo thought about what Teba was saying the feeling got stronger. Suddenly he knew what it was. "GORO! That's not homesickness! That's Rudania freaking out about something! And if you feel it...Medoh must be in on it too!" he rolled out the window to get to where the others were (the window was open so this didn't break anything). With Daruk's protection as extra padding to help his landing (even though as a goron that fall probably would've been fine anyway) Yunobo was suddenly with them.

Link said 'Woe! Nice entrance. Though....probably not the best choice near a stranger shy horse."

Yunobo said "RUDANA IS FREAKING OUT OVER SOMETHING!"

"What is it?" Zelda asked. Yunobo replied "I DON'T KNOW! Goro. I JUST KNOW HE'S FREAKING OUT!"

Zelda asked "Is this a regular Rudania tantrum sort of freak out or something worse."

"WORSE! Medoh's involved! Ask Teba! Goro." Yunobo said.

Zelda sighed "I hope those two aren't having a sibling rivalry fight or something."

[Vah Naboris]

Naboris sensed what her fellow Divine Beasts did. However, she couldn't see the anomoly from the desert. She was however, watching through her new chosen partner's eyes to see what she was up to. Naboris was glad Jessa was making friends. Especially since two of them were her childhood heroes. She overheard the conversation between Medoh and Rudania. 

[What are you boys up to? You just scared poor Yunobo out of his wits! I saw the whole thing through Jessa's eyes. You also scared her Stallhorse!] Naboris scolded the two male Divine Beasts, sensing that her Gerudo Hybrid was laughing and having fun with her new friends. 

 

[Jessa]

Jessa yelped in surprise as Yunobo made his rather unexpected entrance before she laughed, making sure that Maxilar wasn't too surprised. Actually, he was a little startled, but he was more curious about the group intruder more than anything and lowered his head to the Goron on the ground. Maxilar sniffed him, snorting a little as he did so. 

"Oh my Hylia, I'm sorry Yunobo, I know I shouldn't laugh. But your entrance was pretty funny." Jessa apologized, offering the Goron a hand up. She could sense Naboris was up to something - probably talking to the other Divine Beasts judging from her mental tone. She was used to feeling Naboris at the back of her mind by now. She could tell Yunobo wasn't. She shot Sidon a glare that would send a Stalkoblin running when he started laughing that shut him up immediately.

Rudania replied [Oh so of all the times NOW is when our connection progresses. Of course.] After a slight pause to worry about Yunobo possibly getting into something over his tiny head (cuz even a goron is tiny to a divine beast) Rudania continued [There was some sort of magic thing happening! We don't know what it was but it's like the air opened and it spat out a weird looking goron and an evil bird. The goron is now RIDING the bird! I'm very confused. I mean, that bird is full of some nasty sort of magic sort of like Ganon's. The goron didn't seem to be but he's riding the thing now! I don't know what we should do about this. I was thinking of messaging the sheikah slate so hopefully Zelda or Little Guy might help us. If Yunobo's freaked out though they might already be about to show up. But...maybe I should message anyway? My link with Yunobo probubly isn't quite strong enough for him to know the whole story yet.] He sent her some footage of what happened partly to prove he wasn't making it up but also just so he and Medoh could get another opinion in on this matter.

(Rudania did not have a history of making things up but he did sometimes make mystakes in explaining what he saw if he caught a thing at a glance or didn't understand a situation. Plus this was honistly so weird that even the most honest person in the world would want to prove they didn't make it up)

 

 

 

 

Yunobo accepted the hand up though did most of the work of getting up to avoid making Jessa pull a goron to his feet.

Naboris seemed to give the mechanical equivalent of an exasperated sigh. She had a stronger connection with her partner and would be able to give her the full details if needed. 

[Bear in mind that my handler rides a Stallhorse. It's probably a similar situation.] Naboris pointed out smugly, probably earning a mechanical eye roll from the other two Divine Beasts.

 

[Jessa]

Jessa smiled, glad the Goron was literally pulling his weight before Maxilar started sniffing to check him for injuries. She smiled at that. 

"Maxilar just wants to make sure you didn't get hurt or anything. Don't worry, he won't bite." She assured the Goron, watching Maxilar as he stomped a hoof as if in approval and pulled back, respecting the Goron's space bubble and moved to stand beside Jessa.

-Vah Rudania-

Rudania sent [YOURS RIDES AN EVIL THING?!] which was probubly not what Naboris wanted him to take from it but Rudania was...well...Rudania. Despite being a machine he was more emotionally driven then logical.

 

 

 

 

 

-Yunobo-

Yunobo did flinch and bring up his sheild for a moment when the stallhorse moved to sniff him but at least he didn't run away screaming.

Zelda said "I think Link and I should go g.rab some horses. That will help us keep up in case the beasts are on the move or will start running off somewhere. If you two get any more information on what is going on let us know when we get back."

Yunobo said "I....probubly would weigh really heavily on a horse. Goro. I'll just roll."

[Vah Naboris]

Vah Naboris would've face palmed if she could. She sighed and rolled her giant eyes again. Her eyes alone were the size of a building. She knew Vah Ruhta didn't mind that one of her friends had a partner that rode an "evil" thing.

[Oh hush you. Maxilar's not that bad. He's a sweetheart. You should see him play with Jessa's fox. You'd think they were siblings from the way they behave. I let him run around in my halls whenever Jessa needs a break from her village to get away from the crowds at night during their festivals.] Naboris scolded, wishing Rudania wasn't so literal half the time, if not all the time. Honestly, it was like trying to explain things to a child. 

 

[Jessa]

Jessa nodded, glancing at her new Goron friend. She'd gotten a report from Naboris about a Goron on some kind of bird thing that didn't look like it was from this world but similar to Maxilar in terms of energy signature. 

"Naboris just told me what the other two Beasts saw - something about a Goron on a weird looking bird that might've been cursed like Maxilar was. If you don't mind, I'd like to come along. I'll bring Trixie and Maxilar. If there's magic in play, they'll smell it well before any of us." Jessa commented, pulling out the simple, but elegant, blue saddle blanket and leather seat that went with it and started strapping them to Maxilar as if he were a regular horse. The Stallhorse stood perfectly still, letting his human work before allowing her to swing up on him

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Vah Medoh & Zeraena

¥ Zeraena ¥

Zeraena yelled a 'Can do!' at Draiil as he ran off, then continued to keep nearby the Beasts during the whole situation.

 

⇔ Vah Medoh ⇔

[Will you two focus on the current issue here? Now is not really the time for discussing Naboris' riders' stalhorse! Misunderstood thing or not, that bird is far less innocent than a Stalhorse is. It looks more like it's mostly made of dark magic rather than an originally normal thing resurrected by evil. And that Goron isn't Jessa, either.] Medoh sent, feeling a little bit annoyed by his siblings' bickering at the moment when something clearly important was going on. Medoh was currently following where Grumf and Floofy were going since he was able to track them easier because... he was flying too. [What do you think we should do about them? We can't just let them get away without any sort of questioning or anything.] he sent to the two currently involved siblings (because as annoyed as he was with Naboris currently, he kind of trusted her to have a better idea than Rudania would have)

 

‡ Teba ‡

Teba furrowed his brow when Yunobo suddenly announced that it was something going on with Rudania. He watched the Goron roll out and fall to the courtyard below before venturing out there himself by just calmly diving out of the window. He listened to them all converse for a small while before saying "I can go scout ahead and see if I can track down this goron and bird. Chances are if they're in flight it will be easier for someone who can fly to catch up to them, after all." and then taking off soon afterwards (for he hadn't really been 'asking')

 

He stopped by the weapons-check guy and got his bow back, before flying out to Hyrule field to see if he could spot these 'creatures' anywhere.

-Vah Rudania-

Rudania sent [YOU'VE LET IT IN YOU?! YUCKY! You know those stallhorse things stink of Ganon right?] unfortunately even Rudania's great respect for Naboris as a fellow hot place lover wasn't quite enough to stop him being horrified.

Now, saying something stunk was probably incorrect as Rudania couldn't actually smell but the thing he had that worked about the closest to smelling was his magic sensing ability so he tended to use the same terminology even though the sense was more like a feeling then a scent.

On the bright side. This conversation WAS making Rudania rethink his earlier choice to try to stomp the bird. He wasn't sold just yet but this was starting to feel like an oops moment.

Then Medoh scolded them and Rudania dropped the stallhorse topic even though it wasn't dropped 100%.

He asked his brother [How can we catch them without hurting them? I have ways to pick up little people but not from the sky. And your feet would just crush them.]

 

 

 

 

-Bird rider-

Grumf the weird bird riding goron looked backwards noting Medoh he said "Ah geeze. FLOOFY! EVASIVE MANEUVERS!" Floofy darted up to try and hide in the clouds because of course neither he or his rider knew what Medoh was or that he could home in on the dark magic Floofy had infused with every cell of his body.

 

 

 

-Those at the castle-

Zelda said "Good to know." as she and Link rushed off.

Yunobo said "Oh gosh. And here I thought this was going to be a er....relatively normal trip. Goro. I was going to say normal and then I thought about how Rudania was with me and that's not quite normal even if I'm starting to get use to it. Goro. Oooh. I hope Gonguron wasn't right about me having to be part of some huge destiny or something. As much as I like the respect that comes from that sort of thing I was really hoping to relax after helping Link get rid of Rudania's malice problem."

Soon Zelda gave a "Let's go!" and the group was off. Zelda was on a white horse that looked just like she one she had rode 100 years ago. It was decorated with golden gear. Link was on one that was almost entirely black except for a single small white patch on its forehead that was almost hidden by a longer then average mane. That horse had a relatively normal saddle but a ridiculous headpiece of blue green and yellow with a bright red plume sticking right out the top of it. 

Yunobo stared at Link's horse. Zelda's horse was pretty and all but....what the heck?

Link said "I know, I know. Didn't expect me to be a crazy horse gear guy right? This is Diva. I got him from someone who couldn't handle him after a long line of people who couldn't handle him. Given the name....I had to dress him silly. Just had to happen. He's not the fastest horse in the world but he's not the slowest ether plus he's mine and I love him. ....Even if he does hate walking through mud."

Yunobo said "If he hates going through mud isn't that a...really bad horse to use for a possible beast chase?"

Link said "It was him, a horse that is really not fast at all, or a horse that Rudania really doesn't like for some reason."

Zelda said "You know what? Maybe you and I should just go on mine."

Link said "I already saddled Diva."

Zelda told him "Alright but...if a problem happens we're temporarily leaving him somewhere to continue with mine. That is an order."

"Ok." Link agreed reluctantly.

Then the group waited for Teba to give them directions. Or at least that's what Zelda and Link's plan was unless Link got impatent (actually very likely) or it became clear that wasn't what Teba had meant.

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Vah Medoh

‡ Teba ‡

Teba didn't have to get out too far before he realized that Medoh was following the Goron and the bird. He caught sight of them just before they disappeared up into the clouds. Circling back around, he did a quick fly-by over the group and yelled down "FOLLOW MEDOH!" as just the quickest way to tell them where to be. Just as swiftly as he'd flown back there had he turned and winged it back towards the action. This small set back unfortunately resulted in Medoh having more time without someone more maneuverable up in the clouds with him.

 

⇔ Vah Medoh ⇔

[What about your drones? You might be able to corral them down lower to the ground with those. I'll try to do the same with my shield generators.] Medoh suggested to Rudania, initiating that plan as he did so by releasing his shield generators. Now, he would've just done it himself, but his generators couldn't fly too far away from him so they weren't quite as independent as Rudania's drones were. They also didn't really work like little eyes either so that was further reason to ask for Rudania t use his drones. They'd do in the meantime though. Medoh followed Grumf and Floofy up higher as he indeed could track Floofy's magic like a hound dog. Medoh sent two of his little shield generator things towards Floofy and Grumf to try and get those ahead of them so they would have to turn around or at least be brought to a sudden stop.

-Vah Rudania-

Rudania sent [I can do that.] releasing what the gorons had called sentries but were indeed basically drones. They were sort of like really simplified and weaponless versions of the flying guardians though they did not have minds of their own. Each one had a single propellor and a downward facing eye/camera that could project a spotlight if that was needed. Rudania himself was sort of trying to keep up with the action on the ground as best he could but his drones would certainly be doing most of the keeping up.

 

 

 

-The weird bird riding goron-

Grumf didn't automatically realize the smaller objects that were suddenly also in pursuit were part of his already present persuers. So, when Floofy had to make few turns thanks to something that sort of looked like a type of plant that lived in Grumf's world's version of the Gerudo desert but smoother and more aggressive AND some things he couldn't even tell what was the front and what was the back of Grumf said "Are you KIDDING me?! WHAT EVEN ARE THO- ANYTHING ELSE WANT TO CHASE US TODAY?!" Vah Rudania's drones were almost entirely harmless without Rudania himself in a dangerous range. Grumf of course had no way to know that. After punching one of them (which Rudania found insulting and it reminded him disturbingly of the goron back home he didn't like much) out of fear that it would somehow spawn a mouth and bite one of them or something Grumf said "AAAH! There's too much stuff up here! We're going to crash into something if we keep this up! Maybe that freaky bird has lost us by now though given our luck so far I wouldn't count on it. Dive!"

Floofy folded his wings and dropped. It was a move as crazy as a Rito would pull using Grumf's weight to fall as fast as possible. The drawback of that sort of dive was that it took several seconds to stop it when the goron gave the command.

Grumf gave it early because..... "BY HYLIA ABOVE! THE LIZARD'S STILL ON US! WHY? Just....Just WHY? Why and HOW!"

Rudania was looking right up at them when they came out of the clouds and Grumf didn't want to risk falling within possible lizard snapping distance. He had no idea if that thing could rear up on its hind legs or maybe even jump.

Grumf continued his self imposed rant that was mostly just him trying to relaved stress by talking to himself "Why are WE so interesting to giant predators? These things look like they should be after WAY bigger things then us!"

Now, Grumf did have machines where he came from. The goron mines of his home were quite sophisticated with huge magnetized cranes to move things around. What they didn't have though were robots. Robots were an alien concept and Grumf didn't yet realize the things that were after him were in fact mechanical. This was made worse by Rudania having earlier tried to bite Floofy as it very much made it look like he'd been looking to eat him.

 

 

 

 

 

-Main group-

The main group set off using Medoh as a marker for about where they needed to be. They soon found Rudania as well as even though Rudania was probably the shortest divine beast with his spread legged stance a divine beast is always big enough to see at at least some distance.

Yunobo rolled up to his very large friend and asked "What's going on?" which distracted Rudania a little bit as he still wasn't sure he wanted Yunobo in this situation.

Zelda squinted upward and noted "It IS a goron. A goron in the sky. How very odd. And I've never seen a bird like that before."

Link said "I take that as an extra bad sign for us figuring out what's going on given you're a huge research j.unky."

Zelda told him "Don't give up yet. Perhaps if we can talk to him...."

Sidon glanced at the horse and didn't hesitate before mounting the offered animal. 

"I'm coming as well. I'm not missing this action." He called, his horse galloping after Link's. Maxilar and Jessa were right on his heels. The Stallhorse was clearly fast and was able to catch up to Link's oversized black horse with ease, despite the animal's longer legs. 

"I should also mention that Maxilar's a champion racer!" Jessa called over, seeing the somewhat ridiculous headdress on his horse. Honestly, that would totally slow down Maxilar if he were in a race. Back in Kakariko, they did night races for the MidSummer Festival and she always competed since it was a way for her and Maxilar to have fun together. Trixie would ride in her backpack in Maxilar's place, just like right now. The fox poked her head out of her bag and yipped in agreement

Link the champion of Hyrule.

Link called back "Diva here is kind of finicky for racing. But he can go fast enough for most of my other needs."

"We should do a one on one race sometime! See how he holds up!" Jessa called, impressed with the horse despite the fact that it wasn't much of a racer

Zelda said "Are we seriously talking about horse racing at a time like this?!"

Link replied "Why not? We can't really get in on the action until it gets out of the sky. ....I wonder if Medoh would let me teleport to him....you know....if you temporarily remove the sheikah slate in time out penalty."

Zelda told him "I think I'll let Teba have a bit of a go on his own first." not wanting Link to do something insane. Link however just shrugged and said "Alright, but now you can't say I didn't try to help." then turned back to Jessa to say "So...horses." before including the Zora prince in the conversation with a "Hey Sidon! Is this your first time on a horse?"

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile Rudania was basically repeating the story Naboris already told the group through Jessa while Yunobo was only picking up bits and peaces of it.

[Jessa and Sidon]

"Is it that obvious?!" Sidon calls back, barely hanging on to his mount as Jessa rolled her eyes. Ameture. He clearly didn't check his girth before mounting - even in a hurry, that was riding 101. ALWAYS check your girth before mounting or your saddle will slip and so will you. Jessa had Maxilar drop back, leaning over and expertly tightening the girth, adjusting the stirrup and flipped Sidon upright on his horse. 

"Thank you!" Sidon called to the girl he was now head over heels for as she rode back to her position beside Link, the Stallhorse snorting his annoyance. Jessa didn't even deign Sidon's thanks with a response other than a wave. She knew Naboris was watching through her eyes. 

[Naboris, can you get Medoh to send the action down here so we can help?] She asked her Divine Beast friend telepathically. She'd figured out that trick almost two years ago now. She'd let Naboris know when she needed a break from Gerudo Town that way more than once.

 

[Naboris]

Naboris was indeed watching through Jessa's eyes. She found it fascinating to see things through the eyes of the young Gerudo rather than her advanced optics. Mechanical eyes were more advanced, sure, but there were some things you just had to see through organic eyes rather than mechanical ones. The night sky for instance. But that wasn't the point right now.

[Consider it done.] Naboris replied almost immediately, pleased the girl was contacting her. 

[Medoh, the organics are on their way. See if you can get your new flying Goron friend to land near them. She and her companions can take it from there.] Naboris instructed the second youngest of the Divine Beasts. If she had to pick the one with the personality of the youngest child, she'd have to pick Rudania. She used their link to show Medoh where they were in relationship to his aerial position.

Link the champion of Hyrule.

Link told Sidon "Don't feel too bad. Everyone falls a few times before they get the hang of it. Even experts can fall if their horse randomly freaks out."

"It's true! I've fallen off Maxilar plenty of times when he goes back to being bones when I least expect it!" Jessa agreed, giving the skeletal horse a pat on the neck, earning a whinny in resposne

Then Diva randomly decided to jump over a rock. Link hadn't been driving him twords the rock. Diva went out of his way to jump over a rock. Link almost fell simply because of how out of nowhere it had been. After the fact he stopped the horse and said "Really Diva? Really? We're doing this today? Don't you see the level of crazy going on?"

Diva eather didn't understand or he just didn't care. Or possibly both. 

Link got him going again.

Zelda pointed out "Remember what I said earlyer."

Link told her "It was one time. It's not that bad yet."

Teba ~ Male ~ Rito & Vah Medoh

⇔ Vah Medoh ⇔

[I CAN see them, you know. You do not have to back-seat drive] Medoh sent Naboris even though he actually couldn't quite see EVERYONE down there because of the cloud cover. He at least knew where Teba was, and the sheikah slate was easy to track as well as Maxilar and Link because they had such distinct magical signatures (well, in Link's case he just knew what Link 'smelled' like)

Medoh was slowed in his pursing Grumf and Floofy when they dived as he couldn't descend so quickly. Even if he free-falled his propellers would still turn, and he didn't want to free fall anyways. So he gently decreased in altitude and kept a tab on where the Goron and his bird were. In fact... he actually had quite a clever idea.

Vah Medoh trained his target-laser on Grumf and Floofy. He figured it would help everyone involved to be able to see where the things they wrre chasing were at all times. Plus, it might censored the two into landing.

For precaution's sake and for everyone else involved, Medoh sent to both Rudania and the sheikah slate the following [Just to be clear. I do not plan on shooting them yet. This is to help everyone who can't sense magic, if not just Teba, track where they are.]

‡ Teba ‡

Teba got there in time to see Medoh's laser following something flying through the air. He had a very good guess that this was the aforementioned Goron and bird-monster. Teba was a little worried that Medoh was going to try and shoot the two (ignoring something in the back of his mind that made him feel like Medoh wouldn't do such a thing) and so he came flying at Grumf and Floofy pretty fast.

"LAND!" he shouted, both in a commanding tone and in a warning one. He really wasn't sure if these guys were friend or foe yet so he wasn't going to start shooting arrows. Plus, he was already pretty busy just keeping up with Floofy.
