"Oh? You certainly got a lot more going on than me then. Mine were both born here, though I believe they both have Russian blood in them from before my family came here so I guess they might've gotten the name from there." He wasn't going to go into details on his family situation of course, especially not with a stranger. "So Japan huh? Did your parents move you hereafter the curse or was it just the fact that you are half-alien?"

He was somewhat curious about how the government dealt with cases like Bastet. With the plethora of species and cultures on the island, no case could be placed in a specific type...right? He just couldn't imagine being a ranger having to deal with the day to day of extracting people from the earth. He never got the chance to ask why his family was on the island because life was just far too normal on his end to question it.

"My father died in duty. My mother is a prosecutor, with a load of cases there. As for me, well, I was invited to come to Manta Carlos after my Yokai Hunting training was finished. Before you come to conclusions, the group I worked with was more of an "order enforcer for the Yokai", making sure the well behaved ones are protected and the troublemakers taught a lesson.", she simply explained without a second thought, and despite being reminded of the death of her father, her tone had not changed at all, nor her friendly expression.

It seemed weird that MC would bring over a person trained to kill a specific type of species but then he remembered that a large number of the people of the island had done much worse and were going about normal lives. "Yeah I can see that I know a few people who did something akin to peacekeeping before they came here but gave that life up to further education or enter a new career...Sorry to hear about your parents though. I know it can be rough being without family especially for a long period of time."

Vlad didn't let the thought of his parents get him down. He'd overcome that hurdle for the most part and had found some sense f closure over the number of years he had been without them. " So do you plan to use that knowledge somehow, like becoming an MCPD officer or something."

"When I heard about how things were well enforced here, just thought of looking on the bright side and see my studies unhindered. Ah, don't worry about it, in the end my father achieved his dream of having a family with the woman he loved, so he surely has few to no regrets.", and once the thought of her own future came up...

She crossed her arms and looked down in thought. "Yeah, seems she doesn't have her life sorted yet. She wants to take after her father, but she also wants to protect people, but she also wants to return to her old duties somewhat. It's complex.", OroHachi explained in her behalf.

"Makes sense. A lot of people don't realize what they want to do with their lives immediately when coming here. I'd imagine it can rather life-changing coming here no matter where in existence you come from. Honestly being born here is one of those things I thank existence for giving me every day. I can only imagine being a normal human brought here." He smiled a bit at the thought.

In his life, prior to all the unfortunateness, his family lived pretty straight forward lives as farmers. If they were ever placed back into the normal reality of earth he'd imagine they could continue on with their lives just fine. Maybe the same could be true for the opposite, but he'd have to put more thought into it. Most of his older neighbors were aliens or other mythical creatures so normal wasn't the same for him compared to others.

"But if you did want to protect people there are some good options on the island and space station from what I've heard. There are police and security internships all over the place."

"She could also see about the possibility of finding other divine or cursed essences to bind to her, although... I fear how much her body can hold before breaking. However the fact she was strong enough to endure our influence is already most remarkable, any ordinary human would have given in.", OroHachi said with certainty.

"I have been considering those, yes, along with the idea of becoming a firefighter too. Lately however I have been concerned over demons, vampires and other beings deemed "evil" being attacked, so I have been wondering what to do to protect everyone, regardless of them being related to dark or light or the Inbetween.", Bastet frowned low, and her eyes suddenly went to his shadow, "Gacha can at least be a good judge of character, so I have that help."

And there was, that black cat, lazing about in Vlad's shadow, giving him a more friendly look than one might expect from a cat.

Vlad frowned "Yeah it has been pretty crappy lately with all those terrorists running around scaring people but I'm hoping that stuff ends soon. The island is a melting pot that sort of forces assimilation so I've never found it surprising that such ignorant people refuse to change." He thought about the sort of evils his masters talked about and then thought about those people who wrecked the Vampire commune. In his mind he thought it had to be them, they had to be the type of evil he heard so much about.

Shaking away the depressing though he continued. "But at the very least its good to know people are thinking of others when choosing their futures, and you seem to have help from some highly invested friends." Vlad instinctually rubbed the back of his head before noticing the stare of the black cat and cutting it quickly.

"This kind of thing is everywhere, really. Else Oni Odori and other factions wouldn't be necessary to maintain harmony. But the existence of people caring enough to look beyond the differences and try to help both is what makes a whole world of difference. ...", Bastet noticed Gacha and Vlad's reaction to her, shortly snickering and saying "Why don't you pet her? I don't think Gacha objects."

Vlad gave a reluctant smile to the cat but didn't make any other gesture toward it. "I'm okay actually. They sort of remind me of my family's house cat is all. Though given the magical nature I doubt the two are related." It was a lie obviously, his adoptive parents were allergic to the furry creatures and avoided them like the plague. What the lie accomplished, however, was offering him some form of escape from the proposition. He wasn't going to touch some random person's magical cat.

He was reminded of all the stories of people bring fooled into mundane things like looking someone in the eye, or watching a videotape, and then they wind up in some dark pact or some shit. The last thing he needed holding him down was a curse....another one that is to say. " So what grade are you in then, or are you a college student?" He said trying to steer the conversation away from any potential further questions or requests for him.

The girl may have appeared around his age but on the island, one could find a baby who was old enough to be the progenitor of your entire bloodline so he always took precautions when making statements that alluded to someone's age.

OroHachi had a slightly suspicious look at Vlad, but dismissed it, instead opting to address Bastet about something else: "I may remove myself for now, if you need any of us just summon anyone except OroShi.", and rather than just sinking into the ground, he slithered away from them. Gacha's eyes traced the dirt snake before disappearing herself in Vlad's shadow completely. Where did that cat go next?!

"Oh, about me again, huh? 9th Grade, nothing out of the usual I suppose.", Bastet responded without giving much thought.
