With that approval, Koba fastens the latches of the jetpack to the back of
his armor. Metallic clicks ensure that wherever that rocket goes, so does
he. He opens the cabin door and faces what would be a bitter cold except for
the environmental armor providing the cushion between 98.6 and 20 degrees.
Affixing a long distance lens from his pack onto the camera, Koba takes off
from the deck of the boat and off into the sky. With camera in hand, he will
make a few passes around and over the island taking photos of every angle
before flying slowly a mere 50 ft above the tree tops to get a good view of
the shrine and any other man/D-bee made structures on the island.

Sialillion sighs with weariness and and slouches in her seat.   She  
looks ragged and somewhat shaken up.  Clearly it's been a long time  
since the lady elf has seen this much action.  She unclips her utility  
belt, dropping it on the deck with a clunk, then works on loosening  
the straps for her fury beetle shell breastplate.  Her hands are shaky  
though and keep slipping up.  Finally she gives up in frustration and  
just lies back, letting the snow fall against her face.  She takes a  
deep breath then looks up suddenly after hearing her name called.

"Oh... no, I believe photography is allowed," she responds to Koba's  
perky query.  She watches Koba set up his jetpack with little  
interest, then turns to the island pensively as it floats by.   
"Actually," she adds after a moment, "they say that there's some kind  
of magic on that island that works against demons... and we could use  
all the help we can get. "  She doesn't look happy about it though.

"We've been running and fighting since what happened at the inn.  Some  
of you might be more... seasoned, at all this than me, but I for one  
am going to need time to rest and reflect before I'm ready to enter  
some supposedly cursed tomb.  Maybe there's an inlet we can anchor in  
somewhere until morning?"
