He nodded along at this, "I see, we have run into some of those before." He bowed his head to her at this, "Thank you kindly for this, we shall travel south." Lifting his head he glanced around at his companions, each time a set of eyes would meet the jackal's eyes would glow a soft gold.
Ba leaned in taking a spoonful for herself and smiled, "Superstitious indeed, the last group we met like that tried to call us witches." She smiled as she looked over at Aneira, the white fur of the cat shinning in the firelight. Sitting so close to the guests her dress reviled just how far the animal went on her. There just before her shoulders did the white fur end and light skin start, the animal only being at the head.
The others all soon taking a seat. Bek eagerly waiting his turn for some of the food. The large set man sitting partly back from the two, but his eyes a light green seemed to always be drawn to the clothing they wore.

Still, with Anu so close to her, and in the light of the fire did his tattoo shine softly a strange cross with the top of it ending in a loop while the three other sides all swelled out at the end. The entire thing done up in gold that would catch the light at times.
"So what brings you out here, as you are?" Se asked he was the furthest from them, his eyes as black as his fur showed poorly in the light of the fire. Still, his head lay locked staring right at the queen in hiding, the darkness that hid him doing little to hide the fact he was suspicious of the pair.
