Even on a magical island full of oddities and freaks, the twins still seem to attract curious gazes with their presence. But the twins were used to the gawking as the slithered through the city's seedier underbelly. But given that lax immigration process and penchant for bringing in criminals like themselves, places like this were bound to spring up in paradise.

"Ah cold stone walls, mildew growing along cracks seeping with water, and that scent of rot lingering in the stagnate air? Reminds you of home right?" suggested Char as the twins make their way down the street way

"If by home you mean a dank cave... then yes... except shorebirds and silverfish we have discrepant..." grumbled Merlot as she pointed out to a couple of non-descriptive hooded figures.

"Yeah suppose its bit a more crowded here. But nothing that a bit of murder and genocide can't fix right?" joked Chardonnay whom's eyes catch the glimmer of gold being peddled away by some lankly man. While Merlot was busy scoffing at the city's degenerates, Char helped herself to quick slight of hand to snatch a golden necklace with one of her hands when she was sure no one was looking.

"Hmph yeah so long as we are not the one's instigating it. Its remarkable this society can hold itself together considering how different everyone is." remarked Merlot, looking to her sister just in time to see a new necklace that she was 100% certain was not adoring her sibling neck earlier.

Merlot gave her sister a disapproving glare but said nothing of it so to avoid attracting attention. Chardonnay seemed proud herself.

adryan with eye.PNGAdryan wasn't usually one for just being out and about, but recent events called for him to have a closer ear to rumors and talk. The best places for the talk he needed was the underbelly of Manta Carlos.​
It didn't take long for him to find it when he first arrived on the island and it fit most people's ideas of what sinister alleys might look like. What didn't fit Adryan's idea of the shadow dwellers here was the seemingly conjoined pair talking amongst each other.​
"What do we have here? I call the one on the right," Nux said within Adryan's mind. The thief merely smiled as the demon spoke of Chardonnay. It was at that moment that he noticed her slip a necklace and eventually placed it around her neck.​
"You've got good taste," Adryan whispered back to his demon. Kicking off the wall he was leaning on he took a couple strides before he ended up in front of the two with a charming smile upon his face.​
"Now where did you get that? Not your style at all."​
Adryan reached for the necklace confidently, and if allowed he would carefully remove it from Chardonnay and place it around Merlot's neck. If not he would merely point to the other sister.​
"Now on her? Much better. You should really be careful while stealing things."​

As the pair were abruptly stopped by a man with an eye tattoo strategically blocking their path forward. The blonde hair twin perked their ears up while the purple haired one narrows their eyes on their obstructed.

"Finders keepers." declared Char, two hands resting on her hip while the third help up with a shrug. She made no protest as the necklace was removed and placed upon her sister. Merlot seemed someone perplex but curls a smile.

"Hmmm... he does have a point... on both accounts." giggled Merlot as she looks with her sister with a shit-eating grin.

"Bhah... he was clearly haggling off stolen wares anyway. But I guess I should take better care... gotten rusty with the whole slight of hand thing." mumbled on Chardonnay, looking to the man with keen interest.

"Yes it would seem you attracted some attention... but not the unwelcome sort it would seem." spoke up Merlot, studying him with her eyes "I do not believe we are familiar with each other. I am Merlot, and my careless sister her is Chardonnay. We are just perusing and reminiscing down memory lane."

Adryan chuckled at the banter between the pair. Nux had picked a winner in bringing his attention to them. He assumed the fact that he didn't immediately turn them in, made them relax around him. Either that, or just his natural charm and easy going nature spread quick.​

"A thief stealing from a thief? What has this world come to?"​

Nux erupted in laughter within Adryan's head, causing the thief to wince a bit before regaining his composure and smiling back at the pair. He shifted his body slightly so he was now standing beside them, opening up their way to continue moving through the location. Adryan had deliberately chosen to move closer to Merlot than Chardonnay, simply to see how they would react.​

"I'm Tyler. It's a pleasure. Though I may want to watch getting caught up with you two if that is the level of your skill."​

His voice was silk as it came out. Confident and sure. Even as he teased a bit, it never faltered or stuttered. Since moving to Merlot's side, Adryan almost seemed to be ignoring Chardonnay by keeping his eyes locked on Merlot when he was not looking at where they were moving, and as always keeping an eye on his surroundings.​

"Ah, the world has always been a dog eat dog world. Now does stealing from a thief that make me good person? A bad person? Probably just a bad bitch but hey I'm just trying survive is all it is." commented Char in response to Tyler's remark.

As he moved closer to Merlot, Chardonnay made no real reaction as they seemed more focus on the path ahead of them though she made sure to keep one ear to listen in on Tyler to make sure he was still walking next to them. Merlot in contrast eyes the shift curious as he made his way to her. There was a single flick of her forked tongue to get his scent, then put on smile as she resumed a cordial conversation.

"Well meet Tyler. Your caution is understandable... nobody in our trade wants to get tangled due to another's poor planning or execution." Merlot then gives her sibling a sharp look, to which Char rolled her eyes.

"And yet you still risk to accompany us even when it is clear that would bring trouble. What about us strikes your fancy I wonder." spoke Merlot, begging to question to see if Tyler is will to bite.

"What about you two doesn't strike my fancy? Both are pretty. Seemingly quick witted. Well spoken. And a decent sleight of hand."​

Adryan smiled a bit miming being lost in the wonderful things of the twins as he listed them off. He had heard Chardonnay's about stealing from a thief and was holding onto it for special effect.​
"Besides...."​
After the word trailed off, Adryan went invisible and moved around to Chardonnay's side, taking care of their tail, before reappearing with his charming smile.​
"...I can handle myself if things get out of hand."​
He slipped a hand up to his chin in a thinking pose before he looked over to Chardonnay.​
"I don't think stealing from a thief makes you a bad person. But I don't believe in good or bad. Those are just titles people put on things to give a semblance of control to that which they can't control."​
