"Course we'll help," Owain said through gritted teeth, only held back by the growing pressure of Laurent's grip. "Shame tis that animals destroyed their homes, Ser."
He met the grey wolf's eyes, gaze as sharp and fiery as his words, but the man didn't seem to notice. Instead, he patted both men on the shoulders - Owain recoiling slightly at the unexpected touch - and turned to gesture at one of the guards milling about the barracks.
"Colombus! To me!"
The target stood upright, hurrying forward to salute the wolf with a fist against their chest. Her chest - with her face to them, now, they could see she was a tall, lanky woman, grey eyes bright, face round and cherubic.
"At ease. This is Moyenne Colombus. She'll serve as your guide around the city, and as your trainer for your duties here in Opus."
Moyenne lowered her salute only for a moment, then immediately went into one again, excitedly clacking her heels together as she beamed at Owain and Laurent.
"Pleasure ta meetcha both, it is! Pleasure indeed! If you'd come with me, I can getcha both suited right up and ready for tha night patrol!"
"Night patrol?" He asked. "Are you certain, Colombus? We don't want to drive our new recruits away with the most tiring shift!"
Moyenne nodded quickly.
"Easier, sir. Less people, less trouble. Sides, I'm none too keen waking up at tha cracka dawn just ta train these two larks!"
Jacques laughed, and returned the nod.
"A good point. Very well, prepare them for the shift." His gaze shifted to Laurent and Owain. "Don't be strangers. If you need me for anything, my office door is always open."
And with that, he was gone, heading for the doorway in the back of the barracks. The moment he was gone, Moyenne's smile fell a bit.
"Aya, what an intense fellow. Never got used ta that smile. Dog bearing it's teeth, ya?" She looked to the men. "Call me Moy, if it pleases ya. Swear by all, thought Owain was gonna carve old Jacques in two if Laurent wasn't holding him like that. Goodall he didn't try."
