There are a lot of changes happening in the council that rules over the magical Odox. For decades it was led by Feandra Riverwing and her Elves but recently the Human called John Adams was elected as new president of Odox. As many Odoxians supported this change, John Adams replaced many Elvish council spots by Humans. Feandra remained on the council along with two other Elves but everyone knew that they would no longer have a big impact on it.

One of the most controverse debates in the council is wether or not they should remove the civil rights of the Orcs. The Humans have never trusted the Orcs and because of a few bad apples, public opinion turned against them. The Elves try their best to avoid this change as they feel that most of the Orcs are not savage anymore like they used to be. They also warn for a possible civil war of an entire race is taken their rights away.

Xul'Tchau, an Orc activist, wants to see the Humans taken out of the council before they can do any real harm but feels disappointed by the lack of rebellion of the Elves (who prefer dialogue over rebellion).

John Adams is working on a so-called "Dark Orc Law" which allows the exhile of Orcs that decend from the Dark Orcs. This is no coincidence, as Xul'Tchau is the great-grandson of a Dark Orc.

Kjolmar was making his way to the deepest parts of the tunnels. Everywhere the eyes of Werewolves glared at him. "What is an Elf doing down here?" they whispered. Despite being political neutral, the Werewolves were causious of the Elves. As Kjolmar went deeper underground, he came to a gigant area filled with Werewolves partying, dancing, drinking, having sexual interactions and even fighting. It was no place you would expect to see an Elf like Kjolmar.

A badass-looking Werewolf approached Kjolmar the second he saw him. "I knew you would be back. Came to escape the Human bullshit, did you?". Kjolmar looked him straight in the eyes. "You know why I'm here, Shadow."

Shadow grinned. "Shall we get on with it then?" After a nod from Kjolmar, Shadow placed his teeth in Kjolmar's arm.

Kjolmar had recently discovered that Werewolf venom, spread through their fangs, had a strange addictive effect on Elvish blood. It didn't turn them into fellow wolves but it sure wasn't healthy either. Like no addiction ever is. Kjolmar moaned as he felt the venom go through his veins. And just like last time, when it is over, he would go back to the Elves and pretend like he had never been there. As a lawyer, he would defend Orc cases by day and at night he came to the tunnels. Shadow was his main supplier.

Ambassador Ithnesi Rarrisa’s eyebrows rose at the sight of the elf entering the wolf pit. Whilst it was not uncommon to see other members of the ‘less desirable’ races reveling in the debauchery conducted down here, he had never known an elf to frequent such a place.

He wound his coils closer to himself, the nearby company relaxing slightly as his threatening bulk shrunk away from their warm-blooded pelts and skins. He was no threat, especially given his political position, but the many past transgressions of the venomous cultists had left a bloodied stain in the tapestry of Odox that the snake people were struggling to shed. As a constrictor, he wasn’t built as an assassin but his fellow pleasure seekers were under no illusion that his muscular lower body was just a scaly tail.

He watched the elf’s eyes roll as the werewolf venom coursed through his veins, taking another sip of his own poison of choice: Effens, a potent liquor made by his people containing milked venom and therefore illegal in the capital, shuffled through here on the black market. As the elf turned, Ithnesi was struck by his handsome features and smooth alabaster skin. The warming in his groin was soon replaced with horror as he recognised the face from earlier in the day’s proceedings. He had watched this lawyer with an impressive respect as he fought for the orc case against the human politicians. His naga contingent was now very interested in the developments as rumours had spread of the case being precedent for the persecution of other ‘less desirables’.

An elf being down here was one thing, but a governmental lawyer witnessing a royal ambassador revelling in countless illegal activities was an offense of which the consequences made him squirm. He quickly downed his glass, the burning sensation spreading from his throat and adding to the fuzziness in his head. Well, I’ve had too much… He excused himself from the knit of misfits, other none-werewolves, and crouching low to the ground silently slid his way through the crowd toward the exit. He gave the elf and Shadow a wide berth, and just hoped he could slip out unnoticed.

Kjolmar felt himself being in the same trance that usually affected him while getting his Werewolf venom. As he looked around, his gaze turned to Ithnesi. Because of the venom, however, Kjolmar's eyesight was a bit blurry and he wasn't exactly sure who or what he saw. Was that a Naga fleeing the scene? The Werewolves and the Naga weren't exactly mainstream civilians but as far as Kjolmar figures, they wouldn't steal from each other.

"That's enough for now." Shadow said and ended the ritual. One of the other Werewolves chuckled and let his hairy hand glide over Kjolmar's cheek. "Why don't you let me have a turn next?" Kjolmar wasn't sure what to make out of the not very subtle suggestions but Shadow gently pushed the other Werewolf away. "Too much will endanger him. Back off, Kain." Kjolmar noticed how Kain seemed to be very less trustworthy than Shadow and tool a step backwards. "I should get back." He shook Shadow's hand and a small blue glow could be seen for a split second. Payment was Elvish magic. Kjolmar wasn't sure what Shadow used it for but he decided to not ask questions.

On his way out of the tunnels, Kjolmar's physical appearance changed. Instead of the hooded black robes, a sapphire outfit with Elvish design poppers up around him. Right before going above ground he found himself eye to eye with a Naga again. Was it the same one? "Don't I know you from somewhere?" he asked, immediately regretting his question as he realized he shouldnt be there, soecially with his main outfit on - easy recognized.

Ithy cursed himself as the elf spoke. Distractedly he’d made a wrong turn whilst leaving the underground den and had to double back… straight into the elf.

He paused, unsure how to respond, a mixture of emotions overwhelming his senses. If the elf reported him, he was outcast. Silencing the figure before him wasn’t an option either, as whilst certainly physically stronger, his own magic was no match for an elf’s. Yet he realised the elf was in the same position as he. Dealing illegally. That was enough to get him disbarred as a lawyer and posted to some godforsaken outpost. But he was also confused as to why the elf had already glimmered back into his normal elegant outfit. The naga quickly took in the tight figure and perfect fit of the clothes, the sapphire colour radiant, even in the gloom. Elvish magic and too many gemstones. These tunnels were no fit place to flaunt one’s wealth and therefore naivety.

He shook himself from his revery and straighten up, using his tail to present himself at least a head taller than the elf… “I’d have thought an intelligent lawyer like yourself would have remembered my face, I did spend the day observing your work after all.” He smirked, appraising the pale face for any hint of recognition before him. “Now if you’ll excuse me, you’re going to draw far too much attention to the both of us…” and with a flick of his forked tongue, went to slide past the elf.
