Sectonia followed Poppi down to the desert floor, towards the crowd of RED colored people. While Sectonia and Poppi could fly, Fox still kept up with them with his agility which Sectonia was fairly impressed with. The three soon made it to the spawn area of the RED team, the team still waiting for their next round of combat. Poppi was the first to introduce herself, waving herself in and making introductions for herself, Sectonia, and Fox. It was probably for the best, as while Sectonia thought herself as one of the most beautiful things in this world, she wasn't the most qualified to make introductions. Plus having someone else introduce her was proper for royalty.
Poppi talked a bit with the gruff warriors, their gruffness most certainly showing as they seemed to shoot down or question everything Poppi said or asked, not giving her much acknowledgement for her attempted joyful kindness. Even Sectonia noticed this and felt a little sorry for the mechanical lady. But even with all eyes on her, she didn't fluster too badly and was able to get a few important tidbits of information out of this group. Especially during the muttering phase where they seemed to chours the 'forever' thing, one of which even muttered how they had been in this desert for as long as they could remember. This gave Sectonia a few ideas on how to win these warriors over, and she was going to act upon them getting ahead of this 'Fox'. She was the Queen, so she was going to make sure these mercenaries knew it.
"Ahem" Sectonia coughed, to get the attention of the mercenaries in the room. "As said, I am Queen Sectonia, ruler of Floralia. From the looks of you all, you seem quite strong and fond of combat." Sectonia said, thinking this little 'speech' through. This area felt very familiar, but she couldn't put her tongue on it. "Are you all content here, fighting the same endless fight over and over, with no new opponents, no new scenery, no... purpose?" Sectonia said. And saying that, she figured out what made this area feel familiar, it was like that "Lumbridge" town they had been in. But instead of resetting every week, this reset every few minutes. But from the sound of things these mercenaries could remember past battles. While she recognized this, she looked over the various people here and gauging their reactions. Some were in armor, some weren't, one was holding a gun almost as big as he was, and he came up to Sectonia's chest! It was a very varied group, one that would do them well in the fights ahead if they could be convinced to come with them.
"Now, much like what Poppi said. We are a group adventuring through this land to bring purpose and beauty to it. Purpose that seems to have been stripped from you all. After all, what purpose is there to fight over the same thing over and over?" Sectonia said, looking over the group again. "Much like some of us here." Sectonia said, pointing at Fox "some of you have other allies that came from your world you'd like to meet. You can't do that staying here fighting an endless fight." While this message might've reached a few of them, it wasn't really her biggest selling point. She did need fighters after all, and continued. "And if you just want to fight, we could give you some purpose to fight for, more varied fights, and even strong powerful items that allow you to do all sorts of things." pointing at Poppi's fancy looking shield she got from Thunderblight ganon, and the crown she had fashioned herself from a spirit she had crushed earlier. While Sectonia had no idea what Poppi's new shield could do exactly, she did know that these spirits were quite strong from the others that she had seen, even as items.
"So, which of you would like the opportunity to discover what lies beyond this 'desert'. I can assure you, this world is vast and needs agents to make it beautiful." Sectonia concluded. She would like to see Fox top that! Although thinking that, Sectonia did figure that Fox would be able to address angles she missed. But what was a better motivator than purpose and loot? Especially for those who fought endless warfare? She was hoping that she wouldn't need to 'fight' any of these people to gain their loyalty though. She knew about the whole 'galeem controlled red eyes' issue that could lead a simple loyalty fight into an all out brawl and she wasn't going to get herself involved with that if she could help it.
