While standing quietly whating for Arden and rod to
come back thom their privot conversation. Talas caches
the sound of gun fire. When he turns to the direction
of the sound and sees that the door to griz's store is
open, he realizes that the sound has to have come from
inside and runs to the open door, to help his new



Hi every one it has just accrued to me, having a mind
that moves at the speed of malaises (IN the winter)
that a description of Talas has never really been
given. And since we are all here now, here it goes.

Talas is a fairly attractive elf (physical Beauty 22).
How stands 6’4” with a highly muscular build. He has
hazel eyes and long strait black hair that comes down
to the middle of the shoulder blades. His skin has the
bronzed colouring of a person how has lived there life
outdoors. But as one how claims to hunt Demons, he so
fare appears to not have a single scare or scratch on
him. He carries a Japanese Disho on his left side and
a large holstered plasma pistol and holstered plasma
rifle on his upper right leg. Across his shoulders he
carries a rail gun ammo drum that is obviously meant
to be mounted on a suit of power armour with the rail
gun holstered on it and a back pack hanging under it.
At this time he is wearing a suit of heavy body armour
that a Highwayman gave him after being tossed around
like a rag doll.

Note: While at the hotel Talas took off and put back
on the Ammo drum with as much ease as any person would
have with a light back pack.

A note for Bongos pic. Talas normaly wears bright red
silk chines robs aka: loose fiting silk PJs.
