//So leet, god bless piltover.
From beneath the fabric that shielded his face the master of Wuju smiled. He had not expected to see any of his fellow champions out here at all, and Sivirs presence was amusing, even given her… past employment. Swinging a leg over the camel he did not accept her hand, but instead dismounted as gracefully as he had mounted the beast. His free hand, covered in the gauntlet of his armor emerged from beneath the drape of blue fabric and tugged at the cloth around his neck and head.
His silver and golden helmet cast Shurimian light in all directions, and the large Topaz perched atop it burned with an orange fire. He noticed how it was a tad cooler around here, probably because of the oasis the camp was situated around.
"Lady Sivir," he started as he gave another quick glance around the camp. "You are a… welcome sight, but you are not the reason for my visit, I’m afraid."
He turned to the side, glancing at the winding cloud that snaked its way mysteriously south, unhindered by the weather it danced around. “My prey has left that.” he stated, stretching a free arm to the sky while the other held the pommel of his blade, letting the tip pierce the ground with a jingle.
Sivir stared up at the white trail, then back at her fellow champion. “Yi. You hunt the thing that leaves the trail? Then surely you must know why it’s interfering with the workings of the desert’s weather.” Finally, an answer had come. After all this time at being at a loss for action, she’d be able to get a better idea of what was going on and how to operate under the circumstances. “Come inside my tent. I’d like to learn more about the trail.”
The riders she had sent after him gathered that they were no longer needed and rode up the dunes to retread back to their outposts. Another group of people, this time inhabitants of the camp, went to tend to the camel that the visitor had rode on. A few of the people gave inquisitve sideways glances at the strange man, primarily because of his goggles and accent.
"Certainly." Yi replied with a bit of a smile, and gently tapped the tip of his sword along the ground as he followed her. As he walked his free hand picked again at some of the fabric, letting more of it fall from his shoulders. Shade, real shade, was something he was aware he was missing.
Inside the tent he gave a look-around again before resting his sword against one of the sturdy wooden poles that supported the structure. It would be fine there, he hoped.
"It is a beast. A creature of ancient Ionian power…" he started, walking over to the table. He looked around for a moment for something to write with and hastily sketched a quick picture of the creature as he had seen from texts. It was long, thin, serpent like…
"Why it has been traveling down here I am not sure, but when I alerted lady Karma of it’s presence she said that I should go." He finished his sketch and turned the paper around for her, giving his beard a quick scratch afterwards. "Perhaps she didn’t want to travel down here herself, hmm?"
galewindsunleashed asked: "Stop! Your tie is a little crooked." She steps towards him, soft hands adjusting his tie, before eventually nitpicking all over his outfit, smoothing down creases fixing the collar, etc.
Yi straightened as she went to work on his outfit, unsure if it was a best course of action. “Janna I believe I will survive without all your.. Janna I’m fine thank you..”
sheriff-caitlyn asked: "My word, Master Yi, you're looking sharp. What's the occasion?"
"Ugh…" Yi started tugging at the vest he wore. "It’s a Institute hosted event in Piltover. I asked them why they needed me but received the usual response. ‘We just need you.’"
