Fan out and look everywhere! My father isn't known for his survival skills. The miserable fool couldn't have gone far!

Aye

And when you find him, you bring him to me, immediately! I'm the only one who will do any harming here, now get to it!

He's desperate...

Check the cliffs, boys, the fool is trying to climb!

I got no survival skills eh? Clearly you never knew how I survived dealing with criminals, you creatin.

*THIS* is your plan? I'm a bit dissapointed, Green skin. I expected more then hiding.

Trust me, I'm not allowing that to happen at all! I got a plan but just lemme continue in thinking.

It's called, Divide and Conquer. I need to separate the mooks hes around then deal with whomever i can single out! I can outwit these idiots.

And how do you intend to take on your son then? All he has to do is zap you, take me, and leave you for the buzzards and it's mission accomplish for him.

Keep up the pace! We needed to get those fried hours ago!

Did you all forget the kind of clientèle we have? If it is less then perfect you answer to me!

Is it one of the passengers?

Eh, no ma'am, a detective with a goblin and hobgoblin.

Ericka, you have some one who wants to talk to you. They insist they speak to you right now.

Sounds like a circus. Alright fine, I'll be there in one moment. Just see to it people get things done here.

Of course!

You think we can get a snack? I'm kinda hungry! I can only imagine what food they got in a swanky place like this!

We are not here to eat, young man. I want to keep Ericka away from her kitchen.

Why?

Ericka is a loud and unpleasant woman. We don't want the other staff to hear us.

Please, take a seat, it will be quick.

Okay, are you the people that wanted to see me? Make it quick! I am swamped with things to do!

Who wants to know? Who in blazes are you people!?

Ericka, what can you tell me of the captain of this ship?

I honestly don't see what business is that of yours!

I believe you two were once married, am I right?

I demand to know who you people are! You pull me out of work from an air-tight schedule and you begin asking me questions about the captain.

Please understand we are in important business in concern to the captain.

Please tell me about the captain's past, anything you may know.

Okay, fine! I was once married to Reece! So what?

I need to know what happened before the war thirty years ago.

You'd think I'd know!?

Huh!?

She is lying. She knows more then you think!

Reece Oaks was a lieutenant of traitors to the war. The man tried to make a deal with Ceradal but he never delievered.

What are you talking about!? What plan? And who is trying to make Wrottis look bad?

The plan is to frame the Elf as well as to expose the captain of his past transgressions.

Okay, so somebody hates Wrottis, big surprise, but who would have it out for the captain?

It doesn't take much to frame an elf. Just show him before a crowd and a angry mob will want him dead in seconds if those people know anything of the war. No, this goes a bit deeper, it goes into territory of hate.

Wait a minute! I think I might have an understanding. The captain met you guys right?

Before we were born, yes. Ceradal and he had an arrangement during the war. Riches beyond his imagining, if he did one thing.

One thing?

Yes, to my knowledge, that one thing was to find a special kind of item and keep it for safe keeping. But Reece lied and hid it.

So this Ceradal guy wants to collect, so that means...this isn't an elf's work! It's you!

It's not me, Green skin!

What he did to the captain...is it like what the elf did back at Jewel?

Here is where I find myself in conflict. I can't just tell you who it is willingly. You see, Ceradal is our 'father' and to say what I am saying defies him. But...

This is why I hate this so much!

The Black Season!

We are the instrument to his Season. We are the ones who are to allow the Throne of the Dead rise!

Dang it, every time I talk to you I leave with more questions then answers! What are you--

SILILIUS, YOU CLOD-BRAINED, BUFFOON!

Silliuis is buried under the ocean, how can a Season make that happen!

The dead 'RISE' during the black season! That includes nations that have been long dead!

Th-th-th dead!?

As he proclaimed...we'd be returning home, as he 'The God' of what he wishes.

But I know the truth! I just wish it wasn't!

Home shouldn't be raised...the dead can't be allowed to...be forced to walk again.

Shryke must be stopped. He will give the artifact to father when he finds it. I don't know what stops him.

Not sure I know the guy.

If he sees you or the queen knowing it's him...he will kill me. He always suspected my powers. Not even my half brother knows it. But The Black Season can't be allowed to happen!

Do you think I should try to tell what happened to the captain? Expose who you people are?

Do what you feel matters most, but hurry, I think he nows knows what I done...and I no longer can...

I know nothing that I care about sharing with the likes of you or--

I do believe you would know, Ericka.

I almost am inclined to believe you know more then you are allowing us to know, Ericka. Think about the safety of these people here, think of your daughter.

Matilda? Pah! As I'd do so much as to even look at her, you'd think she could be bargining chip? I already told you I know nothing about Reece's past to bother sharing with you!

What!?

She's lying.

I know she is.

Excuse me, you think she's lying?

The Green Skin can shut his mouth about things he knows nothing about! I have nothing to hide just as much as I have nothing to proove!

Duke, we barely know this woman. How can you just say she's lyin' like that?

Reece is hiding in this ship. He made a deal with some people before, bad people, and that product of that agreement is here in this ship somewhere.

A heavy accusation. Is he true, Ericka?

I DON'T NEED THIS, I--

Lady, the man is turned into a glowing crystal. Someone did that to him. We want to know to stop him.

Assistant!

What!? Something happened to Reece!?

I knew it! There is a ship filled with hungry people waiting for their lunch to be ready and wondering why they can't be in here, and here I see you guys again!

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FATHER, MATILDA!? I DEMAND TO KNOW!!!

THOSE PASSENGERS COULD CARE LESS ABOUT YOUR FATHER! WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM, WHAT IS THIS ABOUT HIM BEING A CRYSTAL!?

I already told you he's sick! Get back to work already, we have unhappy passengers who-

There's something not right about this ship, and we demand to know!

What!? How did she!?

I'm sorry, Sawyer, but I feel the truth had to be told...we couldn't keep this hidden.

I'd like to find that source on where you know all this. Did you know this whole time!?

UP IN THE CLIFFS, YOU IMBECILES! HE IS NOT GETTING AWAY THIS TIME!

Forget this! I'm going after him!

STAND STILL!!!

HE'S LIKE AN BLASTED MOUNTAIN GOAT!!!

TO THE HOVER TUB, YOU IDIOTS! I'M GOING AFTER HIM! I WANT YOU TO SCAN AND GO AS HIGH AS THAT THING CAN GO, HE IS NOT LEAVING THIS CANYON!

WHOA!!!

NOT GOOD, NOT GOOD, NOT GOOD!!!

AHHHHHHH!!!!

<coughing and groaning>

Sadly no!

Ah...everything...hurts....I'm not dead...right?

Least I'm alive, and I see a light!

However I'm certain your worst rug burn didn't hurt as bad as that did!

Ugh...my everything hurts! I thought I was a goner for sure!

Still a ways down. I don't know if Toma and his goons are...

I think I need to lay down...

<Heavy breathing>

Funny you came out of the one cave I thought you'd come out from.

Last words?

Big mistake is to ever think I have any!

Jammed!?!

What's wrong, Toma? little toy broken? Too bad there, son! Guess you do have to man up to me after all!

I never took a coward like you for anything of a scrapper, father!

I'm no coward, just a smart man. I been in this business for a long time, son. I don't let two-bit chumps like you get the better out of me!

You may think of yourself as top dog, but I made it in the top before I even thought of having you!

Luck as carried you, old man! You shoulda been dead a while ago!

Well I ain't pushin' up daisies right now, am I?

You don't know what comes and here you are stubbornly keeping that God forsaken stone! Don't you care about anything aside from yourself!?

Yeah, sure you're a real saint to run that line pass me! You're the one who threatened to fire at your uncle! I know your play, I always known it!

Yeah, like I'd trust the biggest threat to my father to not stab me in the back and leave me for dead. He ain't your friend, Toma.

It comes down to survival, pops, don't you see it!? The Black Season is coming and Norman and I work on the side that isn't dyin' to it.

I never called him a friend. And Unlike you, I at least take my options.

I'm nobody's chump, not even if it benefits me to do so. That's why you can never beat me in this business!

I at least am not a follower, Toma! I admire the whole racket you had back at Jewel, but that is where the respect stops! You're Just a bottom-rate parasite! Even I find that pathetic!

You talk like you a big time success, father. You couldn't raise me right, you let mom ruin you, and you proved, without the trace of a reasonable doubt, that you can fail in style when you even try to become anything more then that!

You don't have to make this painful for yourself, Dad. Surrender yourself, share the notes of Grandpa Orges, and you can at least be able to live out whatever horrors await from this Black Season! It's the only smart option.

I maybe hated my old man, but I ain't surrendering anything that is his! My plans for our family take priority! Of course, excluding present company! You're having fun fetching slippers after all!

Where do you get this disillusion of grandeur!? Duke hates you, Yewk thinks you're a selfish idiot, Uncle Millez thinks your a scumbag, and the only person who thought any good of you, is dead!

And so would they about you! You aimed a blasted gun-cane at your own uncle!

I don't let family drag me across their muddy patches of stupidity. Duke's a flipping little loser, Yewk believes in some imaginary person, and you, well you're just you, a joke!

YOU!?

WATCH IT IN WHO YOU'RE CALLING IMAGINARY, BUB!!!

My eyes! Who the!?

Go! Hurry Before--

I dunno who in the world you are, twerp, but I'll deal with you later!

Boys! Stop!!!

Fuzz and I climbed this canyon just to...just to...<gathers breath> Save you!

Yewk?

Is this really the way you want this settled!? We're family McGuddy, Family!
