Niselle, a little ways into her class line:
. Spoilers for Warrior Balmorra, more or less. 220 words.
Niselle glided into the poorly-lit Imperial office – she wondered whether the poor visibility was supposed to impress someone or just haze newcomers – and made for the craziest-looking person in the room. She had no idea whether he was this Malavai Quinn she was supposed to meet, but crazy was always an entertaining place to start.
The officer currently engaged in berating an underling by grabbing, lifting, and very nearly chewing was a promising start. When his face relaxed out of its furious mask Niselle realized something.
“Oh,” she said, stopping a couple of paces away.
“My lord!” The officer offhandedly tossed his prey aside and saluted. “Lieutenant Malavai Quinn. I’m to be your liaison here on Balmorra.”
He pronounced “Lieutenant” wrong. But that was a correction for later. “Oh,” she said, looking him over. “Oh, yes.”
A satisfactory alarm was taking over his expression. “…My lord?”
“You are exactly my sister’s type. As soon as I figure out what’s wrong with you I might just point you at her. And then sit back and watch.”
“My lord,” he said stuffily, “I endeavor not to have such flaws.”
She arched a hairless brow ridge. “Oh, I could start the fault-finding just looking at you, but why bother? I’m hoping Darth Baras’s little assignment will be more entertaining. So. He wanted you to tell me something?”
