Amalia
the shield of safrin
The Underground.

Amalia has spent little time in this place: too dark, too dreary, too full of secrets, some of them good and many others bad. It is here that she made her greatest mistake, the one that led to every disaster, to the world falling apart. She never should have helped them liberate the Voice - and while she knows it was a group effort, while she knows the blame is not squarely on hers, it is she who made the fatal whisper, who answered the riddle and opened the door.

It is here she must return to look for answers, to continue the hunt for absolution of this, her cardinal sin. The blight may be lifted, but there is still work to do, people to guide back from the darkness. One of those beings may be beyond hope, but Amalia is nothing if she does not try.

She carries with her the usual armament, though the staff and shield are strapped to her back in an attempt to avoid the appearance of a threat. A dimly lit lantern is held in her right hand, and on her pack a small box hangs, buzzing with a special treat: a paper wasp, caught in the Antheneum. The other treasure she carries is fragile, wrapped in cloth and tucked in her pocket, a single rose of Vi.

Barefoot, ginger, the girl steps into the darkness, pressing forward with calming thoughts, invitation she does not know if it can hear. If it was an animal once, perhaps the Attuned bond will work, but... she does not know. "Prince? Are you here? I've brought you a gift..." She is dressed in muted colors, grays and blacks, the only spot of color the red scarf wrapped loosely around her neck.

IANTO
sometimes love can kill a man
Another splash of colour would soon join Amalia as she descended into the underground, but this one came on wings and fluttered to land carefully on her shoulder. Ianto had been flying - aimlessly, yes, but flying all the same, when he had noticed the baker on her mission. Crimson feathers ruffling up against the cold, the cardinal became an adorable featherball and chirped a greeting to Amalia.

I hope you don't mind some company, Ianto said through their bond. Only I think I would be chastised if you were to disappear down here, and I was the last one to ever see you. His laughter was quiet, but that didn't make him any less serious. And besides, this would be a welcome distraction from... from... well. From what he had seen, felt after the events at the shrine in the Wildwood.

Who is the Prince, if I might ask?

Within, of course, the underground was treacherously dark and icy. And there was no sign of the creature that Amalia called. Yet.

"Chastised by whom?" Amalia turns to the bird on her shoulder, pleasantly surprised by the appearance of her fluffy red friend. She had meant to seek Ianto out after their talk by the Spire, and his presence is a welcome comfort in the darkness of the Underground and the weight of her own doubtful thoughts. The days have grown brighter with the receding blight, but Amalia still feels the pressure of her recent failures pressing down upon her soul.

Distractions are welcome. Distractions are how she remains sane. The underground is dark and icy, but a snow leopard's paws were meant for just such terrain, her eyes adjusting to the low light. "The Prince is... he's said to be an experiment of the Voice, made long ago. But not human. At the start." In truth, Amalia has not encountered the Prince before personally, but all the descriptions she has heard portray him as less villain than victim in his tale.

Stepping further into the tunnels, the baker proceeds slowly, the footing rather treacherous despite her feline claws. "I was hoping that... I don't know. Maybe the roses would help him, too. I suppose that sounds silly, though."

Oh, any number of people. You have a lot of friends, and I'm sure there would be search parties if you were to go missing. Did Ianto know that for certain? Did it matter? Either way he had come looking for her, and now she wasn't alone in the dark any longer. Not that she seemed to have planned to be alone for long.

Clicking his beak at the description of the Prince, the fluffball inched his sneaky way across Amalia's shoulder in the hope that he, too, might nestle up in the warmth of her red scarf. It sounds... interesting, he said slowly, unsure what to make of this supposed experiment. Does it have the blight? he asked, unsure how the roses were meant to help this Prince. It's worth a shot, I guess. So do you just call for it?

You have a lot of friends. Another thing he cannot know will hurt her, but it feels like a jab into her insecurities, fingers in her wounds. Amalia chuckles uncomfortably, turning her face away from the bird on her shoulder in an attempt to hide the bright flash of pain, a crooked smile swiftly taking its place. "And what about you? I'd hate to have the wrath of the Fae rain down on me, if I lose you in here. Better stay close, little bird."

Deeper into the caves they progress, and Amalia stops to take some chalk from her pocket, marking a small X upon the wall. "I don't know if it has the blight," the girl confesses, "But the demon did, and... I dunno. I thought if there was a way to help him it must be worth a shot." She shrugs, feeling silly, aware of how foolish her optimism must sound. "I just... I feel like I have to do something. To try."

Gods, but maybe Safrin was right. Maybe she's just a bleeding heart with delusions of grandeur and an inflated sense of self importance.

"I was hoping calling would work, but I'm trying to reach out with the attuned bond, too. In case there's still an animal mind in there. I was going to try singing, too." Sheepishly, Amalia smiles, shrugging gently so as to avoid disrupting the bird. [say"I... I also brought a treat for it. A paper wasp. If it wants."
