Ise was surprised to learn that Kayfor had also been adopted, though by the way he spoke it seemed likely that he was adopted by other Saiyans and under rather strange circumstances. He made it all sound rather nice to have a sibling and part of Ise continued to wonder what it would be like or would have been like to have one of her own. If perhaps they had found some other lost child on their journey and her Father had brought them along as well.
Unfortunately while Kayfor did not say it outright it seemed to Ise that it was quite likely Kayfor’s brother, perhaps even his tribe were no longer alive, she was young but smart enough to pick up on the fact he spoke in the past tense about his brother, and the fact he had earlier mentioned a wish to try his tribe’s food again seemed to link that all together.
Either they were all gone, or perhaps something terrible had happened causing the death of Kayfor brother and the tribe blamed him? Or perhaps Kayfor simply could not face them because he blamed himself? No matter the situation it all sounded rather sad.
Ise decided it best not to push things when Kayfor apologized for bringing down the mood, she imagined it was a bit like if she was pushed a bit too much to speak about what lead to her being adopted by her Father, she COULD talk about it but after a certain point it became frustrating and painful.
“Well I’m glad he’s hired you, you seem like you’ll be great to work with Kayfor. Maybe we could spar some time? It would be a good way for me to get a bit more comfortable fighting someone I can’t sense properly, I figure you’re probably strong if you’re working for my Father."
Great to work with? K4 smiled, certainly this itsy-bitsy four-foot rugrat was not going to be fielded alongside cutthroat missionaries and atrocity-hardened soldiers! Could Hibernal be so mad and despicable to use kids, more so his own...? But the thought was too silly, Ise just had more saiyan bravado and arcosian haughtiness than sense. It was endearing, really! And promised to be an endless well of concern for the cyborg. He decided that he liked the rascal.
Suddenly his alarm sounded off. Lord Azoth had begun his commute on the other side of the city! K4's cut off the beeping, standing up and stretching.
"Yeah, we could spar some time." he said with an easy laugh "We could even spar now, but the life of a problem solutioneer is more than foodcubes and swapping stories. There's this whole-" he fumbled with his hands a bit "work side to it. Enjoy childhood while it lasts."
He made himself feel older than intended.
"And since you were so polite, I'll cut you a deal. You do me a small favor and I'll teach you how I deal with opponents Ican't read. I'm talking fighters that don't have a pulse, a signal or even ki. Sounds good?" the alarm sounded off again, this time like a siren that he smothered with a hand on the back of his neck. He needed to hurry, but also be nice to the little one "Tell Polarus that I wanna see him, to talk about troops and assets, ok? But in a dignified and direct way. I am all image to these people."
K4 was so nervous that his actual heart beat once. Made him queasy. He reached out his hand, in the solid shape of a fist.

Ise got a bit excited as Kayfor mentioned the possibility of sparring NOW only to quickly clarify that while he might have wanted to do so he had proper work to handle, something that Ise was pleased that she was not currently required to do. For the most part the closest things she had to ‘work’ were assignments to aid in taking planets, something she was unlikely to get right now.
Technically she supposed what she was doing right now was apart of her ‘work’ as her Father had specifically sent her here with the goal of becoming familiar with Arcose and its civilization.
Ise got the feeling as Kayfor mentioned the work he had to get to and told her to enjoy childhood while it lasted, something that ALMOST sparked a reaction from Ise as she disliked being called a child, despite it being technically accurate, that Kayfor planned to leave, but first he had an offer of sorts that caught Ise’s attention.
He wanted to make a deal, in exchange for her seeking out Polarus and telling him that Kayfor needed to talk to him about troops and assets he would help her out by showing her his method of handling those without discernible energy signatures. “Oooh, I like that deal a lot!” Ise grinned a bit more excitedly than she intended, at first she believed Kayfor was extending a hand for a handshake but unless her senses were acting particularly off he had extended a closed fist.
While unfamiliar with the gesture Ise was still able to figure out what his intended meaning was and with only a bit of confusion Ise extended her fist and bumped it against Kayfor’s “You have a deal, finding Polarus should be easy enough” she was already somewhat familiar with him, he was an established member of the NSFW though one Ise had encountered much.
K4's smile was vacant, his mind was cast to the other side of Kuriza City, following Azoth as he waited for the lordling public bus. Nevertheless he had the foresight to adjust his fist to meet Ise's, simulating an exploding motion with his fingers as he threw his hand away. With whoever else could he be so natural if not with the child of the employer he was already plotting against? Of course he didn't have the man's demise in mind, he was just preparing for when the lizard was crushed by his ambition, although... he did feel for the baby(ish) daughter. Perhaps she would learn from her old man's mistakes, but she didn't strike him as the learning sort — more of a 'double down, destroy the galaxy' kind of noble.
"Pleasure doing business with you, kid." he waved.
Then he felt stupid for waving at a blind person.
"Goodbye!" he shouted just loud enough to not have it smothered by the ionic flames flaring furiously in his heels. He cut a blue streak through the smog, leaving behind Ise with the foodcubes, forgotten. He was on route to Hypothermy Plaza, interfacing with his 'killer robot', running the data on ship self-destruct protocols. Blast! Where was sommelier jacket!?

Ise did her best to look Kayfor in the face as she gave him a grin, she was quite excited by the prospect of training with him and discovering how strong he really was and even more excited by what he could teach her, with luck his methods would help with one of the biggest flaws in her fighting capabilities.
“Take care Kayfor, I suppose we will be in contact some time after I meet with Polarus!” Ise waved in his general direction not entirely certain if he was facing her when she did so, she was quite interested by his method of transport apparently eschewing the usual method of energy based flight in factor of what felt and sounded like rocket flames, that at the very least would be a useful way for her to pick him out from any other machine man and so she made a mental note on it.
Part of her was also quite curious if he COULD perform the more standard version of flight, she rarely actually sought out help with such things but considering he was already going to be teaching her one thing it would not be impossible for her to perhaps figure out a way to learn more from him. Alas that would have to wait, she needed to seek out Polarus now and perhaps speak to her Father, Kayfor seemed very pleasant and putting in a good word for him might be good. Exiting!
