At her next point and venture, he ceased all movement, brow arching infinitely. There were modicums of understanding there – for he’d certainly attempted to aim Darkeye in those directions, but he was also not an individual who purposefully roamed into another kingdom’s business, if he could help it. Instances flickered to his mind, of setting fire to a particular person’s guildhouse, and some lessons learned from those circumstances, so when he addressed Alys, it was with all the merits of patience he possessed. “I do not think it wise to pry into another land’s concerns unless necessary.” And he doubted these were one of those instances. “I know how I would feel if others came into Halo dictating how we, or who, should govern.”

Allowing a small smile, because he could picture the rest of the citizens acting in the same facets, his head tilted. “Noah has been sent by Vi to help get things going in the Grounds.” But as far as the Greatwood or Stormbreak, their connections were minimal.

Alys had spoken without really thinking, but it had come from a place of good intentions. Still, when Deimos quickly offered a rebuttal, she wondered if she was perhaps being chastised in some way. "I suppose not," she murmured. She chewed on her lip. "It just seems - I mean, how do they even function, without leadership?" Her own knowledge of such things was limited, at best, but it still seemed to her that having at least one leader should be the bare minimum for any land. Who made their decisions? Who made trade agreements? Who steered them towards success? It perplexed her.

That Noah was being sent by Vi to help in the Grounds only made her more confused. So they weren't to meddle, except for when the gods called for it? So she frowned at the ground, trying to make sense of all these unwritten rules. Perhaps this was why she had no interest in politics.

His shoulders lifted in a quiet shrug, brows furrowing slightly. Based on what he’d seen and heard of the Hollowed portions, they were still and listless, drifting in their day to day mode of existence. “Probably not well. Difficult to make any advancements.” Without someone at the helm, dictating, talking to gods, or organizing some manner of motion, they’d likely be stuck for a while. “They likely survive, and that is all.” Alys would’ve seen it before moving her way to Halo.

Distinct implications ran down his spine though, based on bitter folds of the past. “I can recall a time when we were content in not having a leader, at least in the Grounds.” Memories of Zariah, of dictatorships, of weights cast down upon them, on sudden rule implementations, had made them all shirk and rebel; and perhaps it was still strange to see where some of them had ended up today. “Things change. Maybe there will be someone with ambition and determination soon.” Or the other worlds would continue to linger in their stasis.

Somehow, Alys always felt like she came away from a conversation with Deimos a little wiser than before, and today was no exception. Where she fumbled for ideas, he was already well-versed in what might work and what might go wrong. She chewed the inside of her cheek as she thought, considering his words and all that they implied.

She had indeed seen the end result of a land without leadership, though she hadn't truly realized what it meant before coming to Halo. But it was also true that leadership wasn't always what it was cracked up to be. But without anything of value to add to the conversation, Alys simply nodded. "Maybe." It would be good for Halo, too, if the other lands could settle their leadership, especially if their leaders were friendly. At the very least, there would be opportunities for trade.

It was a rare occasion when Deimos was the one who said more, but either his speech had moved her to thought or nothing at all. Snorting, listening to that noise ricochet off the walls too, the juvenile aspects returned, rather than any wisdom or lecturing tendency. Beginning to rotate several stones scattered around the floor, until they rose along the air and spiraled at his discretion (much to Belial’s delight), a boyish grin lit up his features once more. Intentions to taunt and tease were clear, with some notion of machinations contorting around the sentiments – old habits died hard, even after multiple lifetimes. “No urgency towards politics for yourself?” He'd have much in agreement, despite how many times he’d wandered into its space and threads.

The noise of Deimos's snort echoed through the caverns, coaxing a small smile to Alys's face as well. She wasn't entirely sure what it was that the man had found so amusing, but it was easier to be entertained than it was to continue thinking about leadership and leaderless lands. That line of thinking was beginning to give her a headache.

But then, it didn't seem to be done. As Deimos questioned her intentions, it was Alys's turn to snort. "Gods, no," she said with feeling. "Be responsible for everyone and their problems? No, thank you." She was sure there was more to leadership and politics than simple responsibility, but that was even more reason to stay far away from it.

Responsibility and determination went hand in hand with the Sword, even long before moments spent in Caido. As the Reaper, he’d been much the same in his carnivorous intentions to ensure the Basin was safe and sound – and while here he was not as haunted or demanding, old habits died hard. The hard-fought spirit of his steadfast and stalwart aims and purposes remained chiseled along bones and blood; and since they’d placed so much effort within the mountainous region, especially before the war, it would be stupefying to not persist in much the same stead. His machinations were far too conniving for that anyway – to merely give in, to scatter away.

Arching his brow as Alys made her sentiments on leadership abundantly clear, he did spare another laugh. “Evie, Noah, and I share that burden, at least.” And he wouldn’t have even contemplated taking up the role without the former. Theirs was a careful balance, regardless.

That wasn’t to say they took it all on themselves, however, for everyone in Halo had a role to play. “But a citizen’s insight is always appreciated,” jutting his jawline in her direction – as much to say she was always welcome to her opinions, necessities, and thoughts about input along the kingdom.

As Deimos laughed, Alys resisted the urge to stick her tongue out at him; she'd long since given up on such juvenile tactics. For the most part, anyway. In any case, her opinions on leadership were clear and concise. It wasn't that she didn't appreciate what went into ruling a region. On the contrary, she admired Deimos (and, by extension, Evie and Noah, even if she didn't really know them) quite a lot. She just didn't really want any part of it herself.

No, her only leadership aspirations were to be like Hotaru. Maybe she could help, someday, with the Academy in some capacity.

She nodded along to Deimos's commentary about a citizen's insights. "I think it's great that you care what people have to say," she ventured. "I imagine that it would be easy to let power go to your head."

Perhaps, in a perfect world, everyone would be able to contribute in their own way. Opinions would be valued rather than scorned. Measures would be taken with grains of salt, rather than grievances. But Caido was nowhere near that balance, and while they had made great strides and gains, there were many platitudes to go. So he indulged in some manner of a smile, imploring Belial to follow the rocks he enclosed and encircled around the peryton’s form; occupying the companion further as they spoke.

He didn’t glance back her way though, brows furrowing slightly. “When you experience it from your own government, you tend to avoid repeating it.” Zariah’s hold on the Grounds had been detrimental in a variety of aspects – and planted seeds of rebellion almost immediately. Helovia’s motions, and to some degree of Isilme’s, hadn’t been so fraught with chokeholds; but enough sedition to last lifetimes. “Our roles are to ensure Halo’s success. Not to control the people.”

Deimos took a moment to entertain Belial, leaving Alys to her own devices. She watched the peryton for a brief moment before turning her attention back to the rock and stone around them. When Deimos spoke again, it was with a certain... what was the word she was looking for? Sadness? Regret? She couldn't seem to find something that fit. Not for the first time, Alys was reminded just how little she knew about Deimos and his past.

But it was really none of her business, and she wasn't the type to pry, so she just hummed in agreement and continued to walk. Then she offered a half-smile. "Halo's people don't seem to be the type to be easily controlled." It was one of the things she liked about the region. There was a certain freedom about the tundra that had appealed to her the longer she stayed, and she felt the same way even now.

Belial’s flutter of wings and stomping of cloven hooves were another boundless echo against the cavern walls, giving the Sword time to pause, reflect, and think, swallow down the range of bile that might’ve coated his throat at thoughts of Zariah, at parallels none of them wanted to experience again. Morgan hadn’t been a tyrant either, but certainly misguided and deluded by her relationship with Neron, and he never wanted wool pulled over his eyes with such circumstances either.

Hiding a sigh, and collecting the rocks over the peryton’s head so he began snapping at them in fanged relish, his attention meandered back to Alys, the bark of a laugh slipping through once more. “You are correct. They are a strong and independent people.” Had to be, to have dealt with the extreme weather, temperatures, Eirachi, the wildlife…and everything else in between. "Do you have a fondness for anything in Halo yet?" Some favorite portions?
