There is very little that surprises me any more, and yet such occurrences have become disturbingly frequent in the past few days. I can not say I exactly enjoy it. But I must admit this surprise is honestly the biggest. To find myself in a city I am unfamiliar with, surrounded by people and… creatures I am unfamiliar with.
[A wry smile]
And I thought myself well acquainted with all the corners of the Earth. Things change, yes, but they are the same at the core. Yet this place is… different. It remains to be seen if its people are as well. That I doubt. Some things are constant. Human nature is one of them. Even if there are… no. Never mind.
[He smiles and gives a slight bow]
Forgive me, without Sariel around I tend to forget my manners. I am… Mikhail Shifanov, dancer extraordinare. I do hope someone can point me to a theatre in this place where I may display my talents. And if anyone does see a youngish looking man, slightly taller than myself, with blonde hair answering to the name Sariel, please do let me know. His assistance is much needed here.
