Oia'i'o really seemed very insistent he explain every possible angle of his aversion to the sun. With a sigh, Bastien continued to oblige (he was, if nothing else, generally friendly): "Perhaps it is. But I do not think The Voice gives 'social experiments' for no reason. Besides, inside I have my paintings, my wife, books to read, wine to drink. There is little need for anything else."

Despite their reluctance it seemed like they both would come in after all, though he could see the hesitation in Oia'i'o's steps. That is, until she caught eyes on Pittore. While the way she edged around him as if he would attack stung a little, he was happy to see the girl (for really that was what she felt like, a child) so excited about something.

"His name is Pittore." He said out into the room, leaning against the wall as he watched his little green art assistant turn to look at the two twins, yarn dragging along the floor as he turned. Then with a wide smile he ran over to them, excitedly holding out the yarn to them both and babbling in his own little language, squeaks and 'bop's running over each other with an enthusiasm to match Oia'i'o's and Kai's.

“But you only think that.” You point out, before venturing deeper into the house. However as Pittore turns towards you, you entirely lose the plot so to speak, and dissolve in the presence of the gremlin.

You’ve never seen one before after all. You’ve heard of them of course; creatures of rumour and stories, but it’s absolutely amazing to see one up close. You note it’s large eyes, teh dexterous hands, the sharp teeth. Mostly though, you notice the yarn. ”Don’t tangle it.” You warn as if this is simply common sense, before reaching out your fingers to try and unknot the bright yarn that is trailing behind the creature. After a moment you chirp something unintelligible (but kind sounding) towards the creature, and pull out your notebook. With that in hand you begin to sketch and take notes, chirruping every now and then at Pittore to try and get its attention to draw a new angle or record a new pose.

The gremlin - Pittore - is astoundingly cute, almost like a tiny person with green skin and sharp teeth and huge ears and eyes and okay, maybe not like a person really that much. But it's so much different than you expected an animal made by the Voice to be, so much more alive, and really you find yourself adoring it despite its questionable origins, utterly entranced by the little green thing and its yarn.

"Watcha doin' with that?" you ask it, fully confident it can understand (and wondering vaguely if you will be able to establish a non-verbal communication system). "Are you makin' something? Do you make things? What kinda things d'ya eat? Are you like an Ascended an' eat blood or do y'eat other foods? The teeth look carnivorous. How'd y'meet him?"

This last question is addressed back at Bastien, your brown eyes wide as you look up from the floor where you still sit, fully at the mercy of the little companion and whatever games it might choose to play.

"And you only think everything you think too. You only think you won't burn up when you step into the sun, but whos to say what might happen next time?" Bastien pointed out.

Though it seemed Pittore had fully taken all attention away from Bastien. Clearly revelling in the spotlight, he happily chirped back to Kaimana, though nothing recognisable as words, more mirror sounds. As Oia reached to untangle his yarn though, Pittore frowned and tried to pull it from her, making a louder angrier squeak. The yarn was exactly how he liked it, thank you very much.

At least Bastien had not been entirely shut out of the conversation. Looking to the back of the room, he pointed to the corner where Pittore had been found. "After Longnight I returned to my guildhall to find him asleep in a pile of canvases over there, having made rather a mess. ...Speaking of the canvases, would you like me to speak you through the art here...?" He asked, desperate to speak about the paintings and not his companion.

“No. I have data and evidence for what I think.” You disagree with a sharp shake of your head. ”Ah! An interesting point. Many argue that in fact there is no reason to think that the future will resemble the past, no matter how many instances of consistency we see in the world. It could be that physics will suddenly depart and that I will indeed burst into flames the next time I am in the sun. However all available evidence indicates that this is not the case and thus I act accordingly.”

You trill back under your breath at Pittore as the gremlin recoils from you. Still, you nod obligingly and scribble a few notes and even draw a rough outline of the creature and some of its more noticeable characteristics. “You haven’t answered Kai’s questions.” You point out to the creature, as if it needed reminding (rather than a translator).

Glancing over your shoulder as Bastien mentions the paintings, you immediately shake your head. You don’t really care about art, and you care even less about it when you instead have the chance to study a new species. “No.”

Smiling broadly at the creature's angry chittering, you turn to Oia with a patient look. "It's rude to take things before you have permission," you point out informatively, the social custom stated simply for your twin's enlightenment. Turning back to Pittore, you shake your head gently at the little creature. "It's also rude to ignore a question." You wonder just how sentient it is, and how much it can understand. Does it know or care about social norms, or is it more an animal in that way?

Truth be told you aren't particularly interested in the paintings, either, but you pick up a little bit of desperation in Bastien's voice and decide to indulge his interests. This is what you were sent to do, anyway: observe the people in their natural habitats, seeing how they've adapted to their situation.

Leaving Oia to entertain the gremlin, you rise to your feet and walk toward the tall artist. "You can tell me about 'em," you announce cheerfully, your eyes darting between the canvases that hang upon the wall. "An' why you made 'em. An' what they represent, an' what purpose they serve, an' why it's so important to you."
