Ise let out a long sigh as she and Zerori seperated, she was still thinking abou Zerori’s offer as the part Demon girl moved to gather up the remains of her headphones, even without the ability to pick up finer details on things it was VERY easy for Ise to tell they were quite damaged, the acidic.. blood? of the creature she had killed had chewed through enough that Ise was half way into starting a apology when as if already knowing Zerori assuaged her concerns.
“If for some reason you are not able to please let me know, I am sure I can have a replacement purchased for you” Money was not exactly a concern, her Father had been quite prolific in his work and while he bulk of the profits went to the Empire itself no small portion had gone to himself and the NSFW, which now was in her control.
Something would need to be done soon to ensure the NSFW maintained a steady income, it had a few existing avenues she was aware of but the bulk of income had been through new conquests and routing out pirates trying to operate in the Empire’s domain.
Ise’s brow furrowed as she was struck with an interesting thought though it was put aside for the moment as Zerori took a sead on the ledge and spoke up again, Ise quickly joined her and was treated to a bit of information on the Demon Realm and te Otherworld.
Were anyone other than Zerori trying to tell her such things Ise likely would have assumed them insane or perhaps just delusional. But Zerori has already give Ise plenty of reason to beleve on top of the trust she had gained. The part of Ise that had been trained for years to be a conquorer was VERY interested in the idea of some new realm to potentially claim, new enemies to defeat.
Though Ise had a feeling Zerori would be less than enthused by the idea herself.
“They might be strong, but I would not count yourself out against them now Zerori, the scales of power have shifted rather dramatically, when my Father had been healthy he was considered a paragon of power among our people, he rarely ever even needed to use his true form. Now though? I’d bet either of us would have been able to defeat him. Those impossibly powerful Demons might not be quite so capable of harassing either you or your Mother now.” and if ever the duo sought to visit their home and DID runinto trouble Ise would be MORE than glad to inform these Demons who they ought to treat a bit more respectfully.
The question on the Wintergreen family brought a small frown from Ise though thankfully it was not quite as painful a thought as everythig she had spoken of before.
“Not really unfortunately. Father has- had.. always been more focused on his work for the Empire so as far as I am aware he never had a partner, I do have a… technically a brother? There are methods for new Arcosians to be made without requiring a pairing” Ise said doing her best to sidestep actually talking about the particularities of how children came to be.
“Polarus is a result of such an effort, he is a fair bit older than myself and due to his own work we have not spent a ton of time together.. I… I am unsure exactly where he might be to be honest. Polarus often took work that had him away for long periods of time but I am sure he would have heard by now. It is also possible Father made similar efforts to ensure Polarus could not be put in danger that he did for myself, and Polarus would likely require more particular work as he would be able to more easily recognize his ship being off course.” Ise sounded just a BIT bitter about that, not on Polarus not having the problem, but just how EASY it had been to pull such a thing on herself.
While her relationship with Polarus was nowhere near as defined as with her Father it did still worry Ise that he was still missing, she had not had much ability to recognize it while in her grieving state but now it was apparent something was up. Azoth had seemed unaware of Polarus’ situation from their last fight and at present Ise had no real reason to assume different.
“Part of me worries he has taken offense to the fact Father placed me in control of the NSFW, he is older and,,,” and properly related to him. Pseudo-Clone or not Polarus had effectively been her Fathers eldest child, Polarus had never SEEMED overly interested in being the one to succeed their Father but it was far from impossible that the reality that Ise had been chosen had not been something he took well.
“and thus it would stand to reason he ‘should’ have inherited it” Ise’s shift from her actual thoughts came out a bit more stilted and akward than she had intended.
