To Kalcora: That is rather unfortunate. If you know of a meal that will cheer her up, or ones that might make her sad so I can avoid them, let me know so I can prepare a proper meal for her. I'm not sure of the customs of other races, so knowing which foods are better and worse is something I am working on. Kiryu says with a smile. My story is an odd one. I was told me birth was a blessing on the village. You see, I have the power to speak with spirits. Its a rare ability, but can be quite useful. One day, the elders of the village decided that I need to go on a journey to help build my unique gift. My village supported this as there are stories of those like me helping the village. A big celebration was held. Kiryu waves his hands around. Many gifts of gold and gems were given. One of the elders escorted me to the edge of our home. It was there he told me the truth. His joy turns to sorrow. Our oldest and wisest seer had a vision. I was at the center of a village that was burning to the ground. They knew if they did nothing, the vision would come true. The seer wasn't able to give many details. The elders decided that it would be best if I were to leave and never return. I don't hold any anger towards them, they acted in the best interest of everyone. With a big smile, he says: I eventually came across a rather interesting chef. I studied under him for a while. With his help, I learned what I needed to know to come here. To Palodina: Kiryu will leave her be as she seems to prefer that. He will give her a friendly smile or a wave if he sees her while roaming the ship. To Kurvis and Eamon: I would be happy to join you in a game of cards. Kiryu smiles and waits for the cards to be dealt.
