It's been quite some time since Peter has been in the Nexus, and he pauses for a moment to get his bearings. He's obviously been traveling for a while, his boots dirty and his tabard in need of mending, but his well-worn armor is properly maintained and a golden circlet gleams on his head.

He puts his hands on his hips. "Well, this wasn't a planned stop on the tour." He's not upset, though, a faint smile touching his lips.

"What's the farthest you've ever been from home?"

"I stepped through a gate of stone and fire into the realms of Oblivion," comes the raspy tenor of an albino lizard in fine scholarly robes. "Apart from that, I think perhaps the city of Anvil is the farthest point I have reached from home."

Taking in the crown, he dips his head respectfully, adding, "your majesty."

Peter's unfazedness is something of a relief--humans in the Empire know Argonians well enough, but he has had some difficulty in presenting himself among the people of the Nexus. "Parts of it may be pleasant," the lizard concedes, "but for the portions I have seen myself, you have the right of it. Fortresses of iron, flame, and flesh, where a conqueror musters his armies."

"And of yourself, your majesty? What is the farthest your travels have brought you from home?"

Conversations are built on such things, the answer to a question prompting more. But conversations are also built on reciprocity, and it's a good king who practices that.

"A long winter?" The scholarly lizard gives a shiver. "That sounds terrible! I am biased, of course, but glad to hear that it is done. And diplomacy is the path of wisdom--it is well to see you walk it."

"A century of winter?" He shudders again, then flashes a grin. "Suddenly, lakes of fire seem refreshing in their appeal. It is good to hear this too-long winter has ended. Do you now skip them entirely, or take them in their more normal measure?"

"Easily forgiven, your majesty," the lizard answers, bowing from the shoulders. "I am called Shade-Seeker, Archmage of the Arcane University and Crusading Champion of the Nine Divines." He gives a wry smile, adding, "it has been an interesting year."

"I would imagine," Shade-Seeker chuckles in agreement.

As for the titles, Peter seems to have judged them well. "Pah, I leave my titles at home, when I can. I offered them only by way of introduction. Unless you seek entry in one order or the other, my name suffices."

"I find titles are very useful for offering context, but as with any tool, there is a time they are best applied, and a time they are best set aside. If you feel your titles would lend context, I welcome them, but you are not, I think, one who needs constantly hear his own name swaddled in honorifics to be content, yes?"

Peter's question is a fair one, but the answer is an unpleasant an ongoing situation, so it merits a sigh. "One of the lords of that realm seeks to conquer my world. This he does by opening gates from Oblivion to Tamriel, where his forces may muster. The only way to close such a gate is to pass through it, assail the fortress beyond, and remove the sigil stone at its heart which maintains the gate."

Acknowledgment without agreement, but offered without hesitation--Shade-Seeker's snout dips in a hint of approval at the young king's social acumen, a skill he still needs to hone with care.

"If there is, we have not yet learned it," the lizard-mage admits, "but we are very new to the situation, and our enemy has been preparing for centuries."

"I have had the opportunity to explore other planets, besides my own." The young woman who answers him appears to be slightly older than Peter himself.

"Diplomatic reasons. I am a doctor, and often am requested to join such missions, just in case."

Laura smiles softly. "Plus, I enjoy learning about other planets and cultures."

"Laura Kent." She answers with a smile.

"I was born and raised on Earth. My realm is one that in the 21st Century. Lots of technology. Lots of big cities. But my family grew up on a small-town farm."

"And you? Where are you traveling from... and to?"
laura_kent: (Laura - outdoor girl)

[personal profile] laura_kent 2017-03-24 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
"A Long Winter doesn't sound good."

Laura has met royalty before, but never a High King. "But it is very important to re-establish ties with neighboring lands."

The name of Aslan reminds Laura of someone she met in the Nexus many years ago. "Aslan. He is a very big, very kind-hearted, very gentle, Lion, right?"

"Your path led you to your new world?"
laura_kent: (Laura - playful)

[personal profile] laura_kent 2017-03-24 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
"He was in the Nexus a few years ago. I and two of my younger siblings all met him. He was really kind to Dru. Which is great, since she is so shy."

"He was such an inspiration. Very encouraging."
