Packed snow crunched underneath hardy boots as Stashaper Sikká made their way down the street leading to Tyrssalr's city centre. It was chilling outside, but they barely noticed the cold despite their slight frame. One of their contacts at the Wrights guild had informed them there was a important client looking to hire a capable wright, and since very few institutions save for the great houses could both afford to hire wrights on a permanent basis and had use for their skills, this had earned the Dreygr's full attention. They had made sure to get all the information they could from their contact:when and where the meeting was supposed to take place, how many rival applicants were to be expected and so on. The only thing Sikká's contact couldn't tell them was the exact identity of their prospective client, or indeed, how they were supposed to recognize the person they were supposed to meet, which they presumed was part of the application process.

Well, unless this is someone from House Tyr looking to reclaim some of their former power or a power grab from House Nergal, I'm probably looking for someome from House Hormuz, so it's probably a person with dusky skin in expensive- looking winter clothes... or some servant or retainer from another species. There's only one way to find out.

Sikká paused at an intersection near the area where the meeting was supposed to take place, her glowing blue eyes calmly scanning the area while their lifelike artificial arms brushed away snow that had gathered on their clothes. They had decided to wear their armored engineering suit in case the prospective client demanded a demonstration of their abilities. The suit itself was emblazoned with the symbols of their quorum, guild and the owl lodge, but they had also made some addition in the form of an overcoat bearing the symbol of the wright's guild. They had decided against removing their pircings or attempting to cover up the telltale ichor brands and marks that betrayed their identity as a Dreygr, much for the same reason they had decided against cutting off their dreadlocks and trying a more "orderly" hairstyle. Sikká had earned the honor to be reawakened and thus bear those marks, and they weren't ashamed of their old life (or what they could remember of it, anyway).

The former shipborn craned their neck as they looked around the place. Sometimes it annoyed them how everything seemed to be made for people several heads taller than them, but there had been plenty of times when their small size had been an advantage as well. And while their short and slight stature and pointed ears might have made them a seemingly easy target for a mugging or attack in their former life, those who recognized the ichor brands and marks on their face usually kept a respectful distance.

If that client is as important as my contact thinks they likely brought armed bodyguards to overlook the place, maybe even some locals. thought Sikká as they continued to scan the area for signs of people who seemed to be more on guard than usual. After a while they spotted the building where the meeting would supposedly take place and began to make their way there. They had decided to arrive a bit early to give them time to observe their surroundings and the competition (or in case they had to dodge a bar brawl that sipilled out into the street or other holdups.

Let's see how this turns out.
