She seemed to respect the work Azoth was doing, which from the outside looking in was understandable. Faustus was not sure he could say the same; he worked for Azoth because he thought he would win primarily, anything else he was more or less forced to go along with. But as long as he would be left a lone at the end of it all nothing else really mattered to him.
She also mentioned that aside from Earth, the only other mortal planet she had been to was her home, though she did intend to go to Namek one day. Faustus too intended to travel to Namek one day, as they were a people he had very little experience with and they provided him with much to study. Unfortunately they did not leave their home world very often, but with the plans that Azoth had he expected to find himself there sooner rather than later.
She asked of his own travels, to which he didn't have much to say in response.
"I've spent most of my like on Plant. It wasn't a very pleasant place to live; perhaps it was better before the Saiyans arrived. But Earth so far has been much better."
Faustus was curious to hear more about this home of hers, but he was more curious as to why his food had suddenly ran out. He pulled the waiter over and demanded another serving of everything he had just eaten, but got back to Phakk.
"I was under the impression that Shinjin where born in the other world, on a planet outside our dimension. Is this where your home planet was?"
"No being rude to the people feeding you." Phakk barks as well as Phakk really could, which... wasn't great, but there was a small display of spine in the form of a frown at the Majinn. "Please, though. Majins have the appetite of about ten Saiyans." She murmurs to the waiter, proud of herself for using a quote she had been taught. Apparently these Saiyans were very hungry people, too! As well as warlike. "I've been intending on going to Plant, too. from what I've heard, the war over there is about to pick up, and so me and mine are planning on seeing what we can do about it." One way or another there would be peace on the planet. Even if it meant Phakk would need to hold her family back.
"And Shinjin are!" She changes the topic to his question for a moment, nodding along. "We're all born from an ancient tree that bears us as its fruit. But..." She trails off, and for a moment her eyes lose their vibrant green. For a moment, orange takes its place. "That's not my home. Not anymore. I'm old, Faustus. Very old. A lot of things can change, and others can be forgotten." She takes a moment to dab at her mouth with a napkin, before continuing to eat. "One such thing is any loyalty to such a place. After you see the foundations of heaven, and what they are becoming, you become... disillusioned." She blinks for the first time, and the orange was gone. "O-oh, that's not to say they're not good!" She waves a hand, laughing. "J-just... not all agree with them."
Phakk seemed a little upset with the dinning matters of Faustus, which was something he was trying to get used to. Most of his eating had been done by himself or around other Saiyans; adjusting to the 'civilized' life was more difficult than he thought. Azoth was similar to Phakk in that way, though he did not find himself eating much with his master on account of how busy with his work he found himself. He much preferred eating alone anyway.
Huh, apparently this woman actually wanted to go to Plant; most he knew where trying to leave and yet this one little lady thought that she could help bring peace? A noble effort perhaps, but one which would likely end in disappointment. As long as the Saiyans and Tuffles lived on the same planet there would never be peace between the two sides; no matter how hard she fought for it. Unless she had some sort of magical ability to transport all of one to another planet, or had guts to wipe one half out herself, nothing would ever change.
After that, she went into a bit of a ran about the Shinjin and their origins. Most would have likely been bored by these stories, but Faustus could not help but find him enthralled by the tale. He considered himself a learner at heart; he wanted to absorb every bit of knowledge he could, and now he was speaking first hand to a roaming Shinjin. But what was this, the foundations of Heaven? He needed more.
"Please, do go on! Whatever do you mean? Anything you can tell me about the otherworld is appreciated."
"Oh! Well, there's not too much to say, and I'm sure you've heard the tales." Phakk begins, murmuring a 'thank you' to the waiting staff as they arrived with replacements or Faustus' meal, and a cup of lemonade for herself. "Otherworld, acting as a sort of heaven, is run by the Kais. There are four kai above those ones, called the 'grand kai', who are chosen by random chance and put in charge of four quadrans that contain the mortal and immortal universes. One for each cardinal direction, north, south, east and west. Although I'm not entirely sure how they denote north within a galaxy with a variety of stars. but that is beside the point I suppose." It was... nice, she decided, to be able to talk like this. She had learned it all from Ward, and beige able to recite information really helped to calm the girl's nerves!
"As for what I mean, it's mostly based around that random chance aspect. Some Kai go their entire lives training for such a moment, only to never be picked. Eons off combat, philosophy, learning and altruism picked in favour o someone that has done... comparatively less. Not to mention, but they also promote a... culture of non-interaction. it's why not many Shinjin are seen in the mortal realm, as the majority of us follow the word of the Kais and choose not to involve ourselves in mortal affairs. Some of us, like myself, disagree with this practice. We believe that the mortal races sometimes need an outside perspective with some issues. Such as the war on Plant." Phakk... wasn't sure if this part was at all true. It had ben explained to her by Darastras, after all, and she knew he wasn't a... entirely reliable source.
Phakk explained to Faustus how the Kai system worked, and the ways the ruled over each quadrant of the galaxy, which had been all new information for the Majin. She further explained her issues with the chance system, and how the Kais believed primarily in staying out of the affairs of mortals, while she disagreed. She brought up the example of the what was happening on Plant as cause for concern; something they should deal with. Despite hearing all of that, he still struggled to see what she could bring to Plant which would end the war.
"I'm not sure perspective is going to change things on Plant. The Saiyans like to fight; like to kill. Even if you were to somehow convince them to stop attacking Tuffles, or even convince them to move to another planet all together; what does that result in? It results in another war starting somewhere else, and the cycle continues. What is it you think you can tell the Saiyans and the Tuffles which would actually result in an eternal peace? Conflict is always bound to start between mortals; just look at the tournament for example. No killing, but still fighting; we just like to fight."
"A-a good point." The shinjin smiles a little. "Just... w-want to help, I guess. Things are bad there. And... I feel something should be done for sure." Phakk spoons a small bit of what seemed to be some sort of sundae into her mouth, vaguely wondering why such a cold climate area would sell sundaes, but happy for it nonetheless! "But, good questions, Faustus! I can see why you're so smart!" She gives him a grin, relaxing somewhat. The shinjin herself was smart, although obviously not as much as the Majinn before her. It was... nice, she decided. Nice to see that not all Majinn were so driven by their hunger as to think of nothing else. She had seen some like that, and it wasn't pretty. Part of the reason she had taken to carrying around emergency snacks.
"But that's neither here nor there. I'm not going to plant to do anything more than review the situation. The perspective scenario was assuming that all shinjin agreed with me. Which they evidently don't." She gives a self depreciating smile and chuckle. "It's not like I'm a social pariah or anything, just happen to have disagreements. You'd be surprised by how mortal a lot of immortals act." Just as prone to mistakes and faults, Phakk had learnt. It was... frustrating, sometimes, to see such an old being behaving in such a wa- She shakes her head, clearing it of such thoughts. Talk about depressing!
"Oh! Yes, the tournament! A good friend of mine is competing in it, so maybe you two will end up fighting. His name is Ward, and he's super strong." Phakk couldn't help the smile that blossomed on her face at the mention of her friend, humming happily.
Phakk tried to explain her ideas a little more in regards of going to Plant, but Faustus still wasn't too sure about the whole thing; had she ever dealt with a war before? She didn't seem like she had. She was powerful, as the Majin expected all Shinjin were, but no doubt there were Saiyans who were leagues above the each of them. It was all well and good to talk about peace, but if the two sides will never agree on peace then how will it end? He didn't know, but a certain part of him did hope she aided the Tuffles in some way.
But as he thought concluded, so had his meal. He had finished it all at this point, and now he needed to leave. He had slacked off a bit with this little getaway, and with the tournament so near he needed to return to this training.
"I must say thank you for the meal; it's been a while since I've had something as good as all that, but it's time for me to go. Ward you say? I'll try to remember that when I compete. Perhaps I'll see you at the tournament? And if not maybe back on Plant."
Faustus addressed the Shinjin one last time before leaving the store to head back to his pod
"Oh!" Phakk blinks at his suddenness, but supposed that was seemingly normal for the Majinn. "U-um, yeah! I'll be at the tournament. My friend is competing, and I'm thinking of signing up for volunteer nurse duties. Since... we Shinjin can heal and all." She gives a small chuckle, waving her hands as a soft white light envelops her fingers for a moment. "S-so um... I guess I'll see you then for sure. Just... try not to get hurt. I know Majinn are sturdy, but you should definitely take more breaks like this. There's no such thing as too many!" She wasn't sure why she was advising the scientist, but from what he had stated earlier, he was definitely the type to keep going and lose track of how he was feeling. And everyone had limits. Even sentient gum people!
"And you're welcome for the meal." She gives the Majinn a smile, before waving him goodbye as he turned to leave. For her part, Phakk decided she'd stay at the table a little linger, one hand holding her head up as she stared outside the window. After all... it was a beautiful, snowy day. She had food, good company, interesting conversation... Life was good. Despite the cheque she was no doubt going to have to pay. Chuckling to herself a little bit, the girl orders another drink. Yeah. Earth could stay. It was filled with good people, and with her Dads' new imprisonment... she had no one pushing her to rip out the heart of this delightful planet.
