Beau Bergeron lowered the young elf down the stern of the airship. The request was odd but not as unexpected as one might think. Beau figured she probably had the hots for the Prince, but he himself well knew the solid class and monetary divisions present in Aeldrethian society. Breaking in was probably the only way to force herself upon him.
Beau smiled. He wouldn’t’ve minded a toss with her himself, but that wasn’t in the cards. No, his hand was one much better than mere base pursuits. His fee, such as it was, was simple: Information. He lowers her in, keeps her from swaying or falling, and in return she gives him the layout of the room, what they are carrying (as if he didn’t already know of course), and importantly, what they are carrying it in.
Tayliana gave a thumbs up as she was pulled into their room.
All for the good of the ship and the Captain, of course.

Tayliana Winddancer Dahtaligaar would nearly have laughed at the other female’s incredulity had the Prince and the Wizard not both immediately trained their weapons on her upon arrival.
“Yes, well, milord,” she did a sort of half-bow so as not to seem to be going for a weapon, “sometimes you make it seem like a girl needs a more…direct approach to get acquainted.” she said. She took care to steer clear of any boxes or bags the daemonic cards could currently be housed in. She knew they were here, somewhere. They had to be, though she couldn’t sense that weird aura she’d felt in Kledy. She didn’t really mind that all that much.
“What I want is not necessarily what you might’ve thought. I need to bring you to my room,” she said to Jeneyeru with a smile, “I need you to do something there that you might find a bit…out of the ordinary.” She hoped that they’d lower their guard and acquiesce to her request.
“This ship is…” she struggled to come up with the right words to explain it, “special,” she decided. “In more ways than just the obvious. It was once, in another lifetime, powered without wind and without sails. Without magic of any kind. But with some sort of clockwork mechanism of a kind in which I’ve never seen or heard of in all my days.”
“I’ve been trying to make it functional once again. It fascinates me. I was hoping one who is such a high level wizard as yourself might be able to make more sense of it than I have.” She finished with a full bow, blade or no blade.
