Tobi Gustav

Tobi's arrival to Issathon after departing from Itim was somewhat swift over the two day flight, epecially with Tobi's wind magic aiding Triton in the skys. Naturally the two were excited to see such a bustling and active fortress. Once within the city walls Tobi escorted Triton to the dragon stables where he was to rest for the time being. The first thing Tobi set out to do was find some merchants he could trade with, he needed some supplies. After he was finished with such things Tobi decided to rest inside a small shack to get a drink. To his suprise there were a few Royal Guards there as well, chatting among themselves.

The first of the Knights takes a sip of his drink before speaking, "...ahh, where exactly do you think we should start to look?"

Then the somewhat shorter Knight responded, "I dunno, but the kind sounded serious." He pulls the parchment of suspected dragon tamers from his satchel. "Theres still a few dragon tamers on the list we havnt found."

Dragon Tamers..?? Why are they looking for Dragon Tamers?, Tobi thought. Upon hearing this Tobi begins to feel uneasy and abrubtly decides to leave the shack without finishing his cup, which consequently leads to him attracting unwanted attention.

The last Knight and unmistakably, the leader of the bunch calls out to Tobi. "Hey young man. Come here a second." Tobi, then halts, and approaches the Kight. "I know this may sound weird but do any of these names mean anything to you?" He hands Tobi the parchment. "They're supposed to be dragon tamers."

Shockingly enough, Tobi's name was one of the last on the paper. His reputation must have spread even to Issathon. He thought for a momment on what to dobefore replying. "Hmm...I might know of one of these names. Not sure. But may I be so bold to ask why tou are searching for dragon tamers?

The Knight raised an inquisitive brow, but sure enough answered the question. "I'm not sure exactly. Nonetheless the King urgently requested an audience with these people. "

Tobi then rolled the parchment back up and handed it back. "Sorry i dont think I know any of these people after all, I guess I was mistaken. Sorry to have taken up your time."

"Oh no, thank you for your time. Carry on." The second Tobi stepped foot out the shack he signaled to his fellow Knights. "Follow him. I think he might know something."

Minutes later, Tobi had made it back to the dragon stables and immediately went to see Triton who was resting a ound of assorted hay. In the Drake's slumber, its sides heaving slowly up and down with every breathe. Tobi called to his friend from over the gate. "Hey, buddy, I'm back!" Triton then, in a flash responds to his rider jovialy nuzzling his face. "Haha, yea, I missed you too!" Tobi reaches into his sack and pulls out a fresh mutton for Triton to feast on. "Eat up. Make it snappy too, I think some people might be looking for us."

Then, from beind the cover of the well, the three Knights from before jump out and confront Tobi. The leader speaking fist. "Aha! I knew I was right about you! You're a dragon tamer!"

Tobi, unsure of what to do, edged closer towards Triton's gate. "And, what about it?"

The Knight took a non-threatening step closer. "Look, I'm under strict ordersto present any Dragon Tamer I find to the king. Dont make this more difficult than it has to be. There will be consequenses if you resist."

Tobi, looked over at Triton who had become tense, then back torwards the royal guards. "Fine, I'll come along with you." He then turns to Triton and pats his head. "Just hold tight, i'll be back again soon." And with that, the Royal Knights escorted Tobi the the Royal Palace.
