(Music: Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked)
Grimport, The Ludroth’s Fang…
Moxxi herself was out of her room, watching over the usual crowd drink, gamble, or just behave like the dimwitted assholes many of them were.
Still, they were always variation every now and then. Today was one of them.
The doors to the tavern slammed open, to show Jin standing there, a cold and peeved expression on his face. The entire tavern went silent as they recognized the colors and symbols he wore: those of the Aquarius kingdom. He gave a look of contempt around the area and scoffed. “Feh, a regular pigsty in a shithole settlement.”
Moxxi eyes narrowed, but she said nothing as Jin entered, followed by Opera, Calua, and Gren…and a squadron of Skrall, causing some of the more cowardly patrons to freeze up.
Marcus just growled. “Great, a raid of imperial assholes. Just what we need.”
No one paid any attention to him as Jin and his tro

Night of Dreams
“You sure about this, captain?” Hakumen asked as he, Zero, and Krocken began to hack down trees for a fire as others set up simple shelters to camp out the night. “The ship could drift out to sea while we’re doing this.”
“No, I don’t think so.” Krocken replied. “There has to be a docking station ahead for when the slaves where occupying the area when ships came in.”
“Eh, can’t argue with that.” Hakumen agreed as they approached the campsite and tossed logs into the fire and sat down with the others.
For the most part, the atmosphere was quite cheery and pleasant, with casual chatter and laughter. Tao was happily chowing down with Breezie as Mia, Rapunzel, and Chocolat spoke with the others over the day’s events
“So,” Korra began. “Why do you think of our lifestyle so far?”
Mia paused and thought. “Well, first there were the various incidents at the ro

The next morning…
Krocken stepped out from his office, stretching his tail and other limbs as he breathed in the salty air. Everything seemed to be peaceful, with Rayman entertaining the nobles with stories of their past exploits-most of which was full of insane actions. He watched in amusement as the girls shifted between stares and laughter.
Everyone else was either doing some small chores to tidy up the ship or keeping their weapons checked and ready for any sort of confrontation. Lawrence was just finishing up his duties and decided to go and check on Ibuki…
…but before he did, he turned to his captain to examine him. In the short time serving under him, he came to the reasoning that Krocken was VERY hard to read. Aside from his time at Illyria, his past was practically unknown, even, as Lawrence saw it, to the others. It was almost one big blank spot. Lawrence had the desire to ask…but he knew it would get shot down immediately. So he

“The old bastard didn’t stand a chance one you decided to just ice him.” Korra said with smirk to her captain.
“Yeah, but doing that always tires the hell out of me.” Krocken sighed as she dragged the block of ice to the group.
Garna looked into the ice, and made out what appeared to be a very large heart, with surface that seemed to be a mix of molten rock and iron. “Say,” he reached for it. “Just what is this any-“
He was halted when Krocken grabbed his arm in a firm grip. “Don’t touch, and you may regret what you see.” He said simply.
“Er…all right.” Garna withdrew his hand.
Krocken sighed. “Now the, let’s get this thing aboard and-“
A cock of a gun caught his attention, and he turned to see Noel pointing her weapons directly at his head.
“N-N-Noel?! What are you doing?!” Momo stammered din shock.
“I’d like to know as well.”

The Opal Serpent soon reached the mouth of the cave, and the Krew began to prepare them to go in.
“All right, everyone.” Krocken said as chest and weapons were gathered. “Arm yourselves well. We have no idea what else is in that cave. We need to prepare accordingly.” He fingered Tasogare as his face hardened.
“Wow,” Lawrence said to Ibuki as he heaved up an empty chest. “He always makes sure to be prepared…then again, that’s quite reasonable, especially after all we dealt with today.”
“Yep. It’s how one survives in the wilderness.” Ibuki replied. “Drop your guard, and you can wind up dead.” Lawrence shuddered slightly but nodded.
As the small lifeboats were prepared, a groan could be heard form someone coming up. All eyes turned to see Korra, slightly dazed but otherwise looking quite all right.
“Oh, my head…” she groaned. “What did I miss?”
