Corpulus: Ah good you're back.
HI-15-161.png
???: Is she okay?
Corpulus: Don't worry, she's doing fine, that girl can sleep a long time.
HI-15-162.png
???: Considering how much blood i found around her, its not surprising she could sleep a whole day.
Corpulus: i'm amazed she could even survive.
HI-15-163.png
Corpulus: you should go check on her, i last checked an hour ago.
???: Okay.
HI-15-164.png
???: Thank you Ms.Vinius for your help.
Corpulus: No problem, its the least i can do for you, you've been helpful these past few months.
HI-15-165.png

HI-15-176.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: how did i get here?
HI-15-177.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Oh?

HI-15-178.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Looks like someone patched me up and laid my weapons out.
HI-15-179.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Hmmm.
HI-15-180.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: They didn't do a bad job.
HI-15-181.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Why did they patch up my lower body though?
HI-15-182.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Hmm, i wonder who did this?
*Door Opening*
HI-15-183.png
???: Ah, good, you're looking well, should i get some clothes now for yo-.
HI-15-184.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Whoa, who are you?
HI-15-185.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Are you the brother of Deej-!
HI-15-186.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Ah!!
HI-15-187.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Dammit my chest hurts.
HI-15-188.png
???: You alright?
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Not really?
HI-15-189.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: But th-....wait, sorry, you can't be related to her, you two don't even share the same scale type.
HI-15-190.png
???: So you noticed.
HI-15-191.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Sorry, i assumed you were here to assassinate me, its a little dark in here too.
???: I'll let it slide, how are you feeling?
HI-15-192.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I'm doing better....wait, who are you?
???: I'm the one that saved you from dying of blood loss.

HI-15-193.png
???: My name is Solomon Fire-Fang, please to meet you.
HI-15-194.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I see, hello Solomon, what were you doing on that ship.
HI-15-195.png
Solomon: I was there doing some scouting, i'm a scavenger, just not a violent one like you see normally.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Oh.
HI-15-196.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: By the way, you didn't do anything strange to me right?
Solomon: Strange? I don't follow.
HI-15-197.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I mean did you rape me in my sleep.
HI-15-198.png
Solomon: What in Oblivion!?
HI-15-199.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Just a question, i've had that happen a lot.
Solomon: I'm not sure how to respond to any of that.
HI-15-200.png
Solomon: I'm not the type to do that.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Really?
HI-15-201.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Got any way to prove it.
Solomon: Look at me.
HI-15-202.png
Solomon: Do i look like a rapist to you.
HI-15-203.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: .......fair point, you've got different eyes than most people i meet.
HI-15-204.png
Solomon: Thank you.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: So what do you want from me.
Solomon: Before i was just checking up on you, but you mentioned a name.
HI-15-205.png
Solomon: It wouldn't happen to be the name of the Argonian Pirate i killed would it.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: It is. And i know where they stored their goods.
Solomon: Great, could you give me the location.
HI-15-206.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I could, under a few conditions.
Solomon: O-oh, what are they?
Ms.Heavy-Iron: First is we are going to return what they stole, second is i have to come with you.
HI-15-207.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: And third is that you watch my back.
Solomon: Oh, you sure you are up for going into another fight. You lost quite a bit of blood.

HI-15-208.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I should be okay, i just need to modify a few items on me and then we can fight them with no problem.
HI-15-209.png
Solomon: Sure, i'll help you get some supplies.
HI-15-210.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: No need, i've got them already, we just need to stop at the Blue Palace(grunts as she gets up) Ow
Solomon: Whoa there, don't strain yourself.
HI-15-211.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Don't worry so much, i'll be fine, thanks for worrying but i've been through worse than 1 stab wound. Also thanks for getting my stuff by the way.
Solomon: I'll ask about the stab wound later. Sorry, about your armor by the way, i guess they stole it and hid it, i couldn't find any that could fit you so i was going to grab some once you told me what you like.
HI-15-212.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Oh they didn't steal it.
Solomon: When what happened to it?
Ms.Heavy-Iron: With the exception of these Gauntlets i was never wearing any.
Solomon: What!? Why?
HI-15-213.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I'm a nudist.
HI-15-214.png
Solomon: Wha?
HI-15-215.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I don't wear clothes for the most part, got it.
HI-15-216.png
Solomon: I.....See.
HI-15-217.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: That's not gonna be a problem is it?
Solomon: N-Not at all.
HI-15-218.png
Solomon: Everyone's got their own way of living so.....it won't bother me too much.
HI-15-219.png
Solomon: Seeing all that.....skin.
HI-15-220.png
Solomon: I mean, the body is um.....
HI-15-221.png
Solomon: I mean......i....
HI-15-222.png
Solomon: We should go, before they decide to move from the location you know of.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Right behind you.
HI-15-223.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: This guy might be fun to tease.
HI-15-224.png

 

 

(1 hour later)
Ms.Heavy-Iron: So Windhelm huh?
Solomon: Correct.

HI-15-225.png

Solomon: I've been venturing around for a year now, i didn't expect it to be so tough.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I see, a rookie adventurer huh, what do you think of most of skyrim.
Solomon: Its a fun place, but scary, i've almost gotten killed a few times just by bears.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: *giggles* same with me, by the way, what's with the goggles by the way?
HI-15-226.png
Solomon: I have bad eyesight.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I see
HI-15-227.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: You could use magic to improve your eyesight so you can go without them, you look better without them.
Solomon: Oh....thank you.
HI-15-228.png
Solomon: We should stop at that lantern.
HI-15-229.png
Solomon: Plan out what we are gonna do.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Sure.
HI-15-230.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: So what's the plan?
Solomon: Well.
HI-15-231.png
Solomon: While i still want you to not join due to health, but still don't know bandits tactics well enough so i do need your help, would you happen to be good at stealth?
HI-15-232.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Yes actually, i'm quite good.
Solomon: Okay good.
HI-15-233.png
Solomon: I can't have you nearby me as the way i fight is a little....wild.
HI-15-234.png
Solomon: So i'd prefer it if you stay back.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: A little wild with your sword huh, that's fine. I can help up close if needed too.
HI-15-235.png
Solomon: That's good but......um.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Um what?
HI-15-236.png
Solomon: I'd rather not see you get hurt like that again.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Awww. Thanks, you're a pretty sweet guy.
HI-15-237.png
Solomon: Just stating my thoughts, nothing more. By the way you got any ideas.
HI-15-238.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I might have a few. But i'll tell you them on the way.
HI-15-239.png
Solomon: Great then lets be off.
HI-15-240.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Is it me or is it getting cold.
Solomon: The snow says its not just you.
HI-15-241.png

 

 

Ms.Heavy-Iron: Well here we are.
Solomon: The campfire is a good indicator as well.

HI-15-242.png

Ms.Heavy-Iron: So you remember the plan.
Solomon: of course.
HI-15-243.png
Solomon: I head in first clear away the grunts on the way to the layer then wait for you to enter.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Yep, and do not enter the area with the others until i get there. I'll be healing myself a little more before i go in okay.
HI-15-244.png
Solomon: Right, i'll see you inside.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Okay.
HI-15-245.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Be careful big guy.
Solomon: Don't worry i will.
HI-15-246.png

 

(5 minutes later)
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Alright.
HI-15-247.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I feel pretty good now.
HI-15-248.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Lets go and help that rookie.
HI-15-249.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Oh.
HI-15-250.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Its pretty big in here.
HI-15-251.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: There's some lighting though, that's good.
HI-15-252.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Should make it easier to find him.
HI-15-253.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Wow, looks like he defeated this guy with no problem.
HI-15-254.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Same with him.
HI-15-255.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Solomon might make for a good companion when this is over.
HI-15-256.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Ah another.
HI-15-257.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: He left the bridge down too, that was nice of him....or he forgot.
HI-15-258.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Two more.
HI-15-259.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: It doesn't look like much of struggle either, seems like he knows how to fight pretty well.
HI-15-260.png
Voice: Psst!
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Solomon?
Solomon: This way.
HI-15-261.png
Solomon: There you are, i was worried i missed a few.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: If there were any left they would have fleed in fear after the carnage i saw.
HI-15-262.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: You feeling okay?
HI-15-263.png
Solomon: Oh i'm fine, ready to go?
HI-15-264.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Of course, i'm an archer, so i will stay back a little but i can join in if needed.
HI-15-265.png
Solomon: Alright then.
HI-15-266.png
Solomon: Lets send them to Oblivion.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Right behind you.
HI-15-267.png
Bandit Scout: Talos being a lookout sucks.
HI-15-268.png
Bandit Scout: We are in a hidden cave.
HI-15-269.png
Bandit Scout: What kind of crazy fool wou-.
HI-15-270.png
Bandit Scout: HURRR!!!
HI-15-271.png
*Falls on ground like a statue*
HI-15-272.png
Solomon: Why did he freeze like that before dying.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Paralyzing errors stay in affect after death.
Solomon: Oh.
HI-15-273.png
Solomon: Well then, come on, lets kill them.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Be careful okay, we don't know what types of bandits are down there.
HI-15-274.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: So you draw them out and i can kill any mages or archers while you handle the ones with swords.
Solomon: That i can do. HEY BANDITS, I HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU!!! I HOPE YOU LIKE RED!!!
Bandit Engineer: Intruders!!!
HI-15-275.png
Bandit Engineer: Stop them.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: There's one.
HI-15-276.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Good bye engineer.
HI-15-277.png
Bandit Engineer: ARGHH1!!

HI-15-288.png
Solomon: Whatever your next.

Ms.Heavy-Iron: He's pretty amazing.
Bandit Marauder: DON'T THROW MY FRIENDS BODY

HI-15-300.png
Bandit Maruader: Wait! I-AAHG!!
Ms.Heavy-Iron: That's that.

HI-15-301.png
Solomon: Well that looks like all of them.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Looks like it, normally everyone comes out at once.
HI-15-302.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: I was surprised how good you were.
HI-15-303.png
Solomon: Me, no, you were pretty impressive too.
HI-15-304.png
Solomon: You landed arrows on pretty much everyone.
HI-15-305.png
Solomon: Even that engineer mage before he could summon anything.
HI-15-306.png
Solomon: And those two on the ground as well.
HI-15-307.png
Solomon: Very impressive.
Ms.Heavy-Iron: *Giggles* thank you.
HI-15-308.png
Ms.Heavy-Iron: Say i'd think we'd make a pretty good team, want to work together for awhile.

Hmhm, I like the new guy. Give him a bit more spice, I'd say. I mean, he is a killer, so he could be little bit cooler - not too much, that might make him too random.
