    Steven let his eye drift from Odette to Nolan, then back to Odette. He remembered what Odette had said back at the team meeting, something about joining the Covenant for information. When she'd mentioned it, he hadn't exactly thought it would be as straightforward as walking up and asking Nolan...

    Frontier Town Sun Stone Saloon

    The sound of a knock made Steven jump slightly, forgetting momentarily that they were in a public establishment, even if it was a more private area. Expecting Greasewood, it was a surprise when a more familiar face stepped into view. "Odette!" he said, surprise still evident in his voice even...

    Steven regarded Nolan with an apologetic tilt of his head. "Ah, I had thought it might. Perhaps if there was a history to learn from, it might give hints as to how to proceed now. I'm sure those in your organization would have already scoured everything looking for answers, but just as with the...

    Steven nodded along as Nolan spoke. "Ah, so the light you've referred to before is the very same. I knew you spoke of such a thing when we first met, but we'd only heard of its name afterward." At Nolan's downcast expression, Steven gave a thoughtful hum. "I see. I've heard much the same about...

    "Ah, of course, that's quite alright," said Steven. "This has already been incredibly illuminating. No need to get into the minutia, at least not yet. You've given us plenty to mull over, and in such short order." He gave Nolan a polite smile. As much as the others had said Nolan wasn't to be...

    "Ah, um, I'm sorry--" Steven stuttered, taken aback by Nolan's comment. Had he been too forward with his expectations? He and Laura had figured some things out and neither were auditors nor familiar with this world in any meaningful way, so surely someone of Nolan's regard would be more adept...

    Frontier Town Sun Stone Saloon

    Strangely, it looked like Nolan went through a bout of indigestion just then. Nevertheless, he suggested much of what Steven had already feared... He nodded slowly. "If this mysterious voice is trying to scare us off, perhaps this shadow pokemon crisis is the reason we were summoned here."...

    Frontier Town Sun Stone Saloon

    Steven's surprise at Nolan's reply quickly turned to puzzlement. So the mysterious voice wasn't the side effect of a shadow attack? Or Nolan wasn't attacked by a shadow at all, but that didn't seem right; he wasn't acting. His ordeal with the Wolf clearly bothered him. But if the voice didn't...

    Frontier Town Sun Stone Saloon

    Steven studied the table for a moment, contemplating something. His eye furrowed in thought, or perhaps it was frustration, or shame? Either way, the expression vanished as he made up his mind, eye narrowing in concentration as he undid the clasp of his cloak. It fell to the side, revealing the...

    Disappointment colored Steven's expression, though he could have assumed as much if Nolan didn't have any other leads about Terminal Two. Although... Alarm crept into Steven's tone at the name "Wolf" as he recalled Nolan's account from their first meeting. "Was... Was that the night you took...

    When Laura mentioned the attack at the Haus, the tingling in Steven's side intensified, and he shifted uncomfortably in his seat. The expression on Nolan's face reminded him of something he'd been meaning to ask the Inteleon, something not necessarily about the mayor's ledger, but then Nolan...

    It wasn't lost on Steven the way Laura bristled at Nolan's treatment. He couldn't blame her; the Inteleon had already proven to be quite the unsavory individual. His eye narrowed slightly, and he repeated a mantra to himself, 'It's just business. It's just business.' However successful he was at...

    Steven joined Nolan at the table upon his request, settling into the seat with a light thunk. It was a relief to not have to hover on his own the whole time. "It's no issue," he said with a shake of his head. "It's hard to keep the mind occupied when the body is at rest. A conversation I can...

    Well, the blasted cloak did nothing to hide the shadow skorupi's handiwork from Nolan's keen eye. It was a ridiculous article of clothing and an even more ridiculous idea anyway; not like his condition wasn't painfully obvious even without seeing the full extent of the damage. Steven suddenly...

    Threadmarks: [Ch03] The Audit

    Steven had barely gotten settled in his new accommodations when he received Nolan's note. Thankfully, the Maus knew how to find him to deliver it, since he no longer was staying in his old room... The Inteleon hadn't left him much time to prepare. Steven would have appreciated a few more days...

    Steven kept his thoughts to himself as the conversation continued. By now, he was well aware how much trouble he could cause by speaking up about a topic he didn't know, and it was painfully clear how little he understood about almost everything in Forlas. Spirits, humans, pokeballs, even! They...

    Steven regarded the sharp words of the sneasel whose name he didn't know. She looked frustrated, angry. Even more so after Laura stepped in. It was understandable with everything that was unfolding, and on some level, unraveling. He gave her a sympathetic look. "No, it's true, we don't know the...

    Steven floated up a bit higher to make himself heard above the murmuring of the room. He chimed lightly, almost like he was clearing his throat. "Bellatrix is correct. I made an agreement with Nolan to share the mayor's notebook with him to assist in his audit. I also made it very clear that...

    Steven gave Ghaspius a nod of thanks as the conversation continued. "We learned some new things, but not as much as I'd hoped..." He turned to the group at large. "Nolan is an auditor contracted by the Commonwealth government. He's here in Frontier Town to look into the mayor's illegal...

    "About the shadow charmeleon," Steven chimed in, "I did some digging in the town records, but there hasn't been any member of the species living in Frontier Town at any point. I don't know if the charmeleon line is native to the wilds of these parts, but if the records are accurate, this shadow...
