Sah

Sah found himself once again going to the training grounds at the barracks. He was rather disappointed in his recently failed endeavor to retrieve mage glass and thought it'd be be better to deal with the frustration productively. As he arrived, the Abandoned quickly set up a few targets and then stepped back.

Sensing her bonded's intentions, Lilly made her way to the edge of the grounds and out of the line of fire. Once his pup was safe, Sah turned to the targets, a determined glint in his eye. Calling upon his magic, he paused in surprise. Lightning had always been his natural affinity. The element that remained with him when he'd arrived in Caido. Yet, as he felt it surge through him, Sah grinned widely.

For the first time since coming to this world, his lighting magic felt right again. It finally felt as strong as it was meant to. Not the weak sparks that he'd grown used to wielding in this body. The energy now felt wild. Powerful, lethal, and just as eager as the Abandoned himself. It felt how it should.

Grin turning nearly feral, Sah allowed his magic to release. Without any warning they sky darkened there was a loud rumble from above. A large burst of lighting struck the targets in front of him, lighting them aflame and tearing them apart. Within hardly a second or two, all of the targets were thoroughly destroyed.

"Finally." Sah had finally regained the first piece of what he'd lost upon coming to Caido and the Outlander felt almost giddy at the accomplishment. It didn't help that his bond with Lilly was being nearly overwhelmed with the wolf's pride and excitement.

MORGAN
With all of the politics and complications of a leadership position, Morgan's combat training had fallen somewhat by the wayside. Once, when she had only been the leader of a company of guards, she had spent each morning practicing her magic and fighting ability, honing her body and mind so that she could be sure she could take on any situation.

In the last years, it had become harder to find the time, but she was trying her best to step out onto the training grounds as often as she could. If nothing else, it was a good way to get out any tension that was building in her. As she arrived at the grounds, Morgan heard a loud crack of lightning, reverberating through the air with a static effect that lifted the hairs around her face.

It wasn't long before she saw the person responsible - her newest councilmember, Sah. With a faint smile on her face, seeing a chance to get to know him, Morgan entered into the Grounds fully. "Sah. I didn't know you had such abilities. Do you mind if I join you?"

Sah

Sah glanced up at the voice, his wild grin turning into a friendly smile. "Hello, Warden. And of course you can join me." Who was he to stop someone from training? That and practicing was always more fun when you had a partner. As the smoke fully cleared, Sah turned to Morgan, head tilted curiously. "Or do you prefer just Morgan?" He had a hunch it was the latter, but it didn't hurt to ask.

The comment about his magic made Sah's earlier grin come back, though a bit more subdued. He was still coming down from the pride and exhilaration of finally reaching one of his goals. "Actually. This was the first time that my lighting has been that powerful. I think my training is finally beginning to pay off." He paused, recalling something. "You're an Abandoned too, right?"

As the two Abandoned spoke, Lilly trotted over. Sitting beside her bonded, she gave Morgan a small yip and wag in greeting. A  new person to meet meant she had one more person she could ensnare as a friend.

MORGAN
"Morgan, Warden - I don't mind. Most call me Warden, but-" She shrugged, taking off her heavy cloak and letting it drop onto a bench, revealing her leather armour underneath. Morgan still had the necklace Deimos had made her around her neck, the benefits it provided far too beneficial to let pride take it from her; as she stepped into the arena she pressed it to activate the armour. "-Whichever you are most comfortable with."

She nodded and opened her mouth to reply when they were interrupted by a wolf approaching. For the smallest of seconds Morgan was alarmed, but it seemed Sah was comfortable with it's presence, and the friendly yip marked it out as a likely companion. "Oh. Hello." Morgan greeted, giving Lily a couple of obligatory head pats.

"As I was saying. I am Abandoned. It is only in the last few years I have begun to truly invest time in learning my magics - prior to that I relied on more direct physical combat." When she'd been the guard captain taking down common thieves and thugs, the hammer had been perfectly suitable. "How long have you been practicing?"

Sah

Sah's lips twitched slightly as Lilly made herself known. Satisfied with the Wardens' compliance, the wolf returned to romping through the snow. The Outlander shook his head fondly before focusing on the conversation as Morgan began to speak. It was a surprise to hear that she'd only recently begun to train her magic. That almost sounded like refusing to exercise both sides of your body to Sah. He couldn't comprehend it.

"Truly? Any particular reason why?" Surely there was a reason behind her choice. Refusing to properly train seemed to contradict the impression that the Warden had given him so far.  "What magics do you have?"

His own training was another matter, one that drew a sigh from Sah. "I've been training nonstop since I came to Caido, switching between physical and magical every other day. I was stronger in my original world and had mastery of my magic. Having to start from scratch has been frustrating. It's pushed me to do all that I can to rectify it.  

Sah eyed the still smoldering target with satisfaction. "I'm finally starting to get there." The Outlander hated being weak. Hated not being able to protect himself or his loved ones. Regaining his former strength was more than just a goal for Sah. In his eyes, it was the only option.

MORGAN
Morgan could see Sah's surprise, and understand it: she'd probably find it odd from the outside too. "It's...complex, but...my father was not Abandoned, and I took most of my training and inspiration in my early life from him. He succeeded as the guard captain here for many years without magic and was very keen I should learn to defend myself without it too." Her father had been set in his ways and some might have thought close-minded, but she'd appreciated the regiment and discipline he had given her. She never had to depend on only her magic.

She'd heard of some people that had arrived from other worlds losing their powers, even if they had been hugely powerful before. "That must be frustrating. Admirable that you are picking it up again, though. I know some would simply give up." Not her, but she'd seen enough people throw in the towel on just about anything after one failed attempt.

At his confidence, she smiled and rolled her shoulders back. "Well. Would you like to practice with me? I'll let you have the first blow. No blood, we stop whenever either wants to." A gentle fight, for their first session; she didn't know Sah well enough to let a wound damage their relationship so early.
