He nods, "Yes my parents were both Mages,  respectable ones my father was a line walker, and mother a ley line rifter. I had a wanderlust though I could have stayed back home and become part of the whole power structure but there was a whole world out there and through my studies I discovered there were more worlds then just our own. When I chose to be a Shifter it surprised everyone it is not generally considered one of the respectable arts because it goes beyond the world. I guess in a way were not too different we both like to see new places, you with skill and knowledge of the woodlands and me with my magic." His thumb caressed her hand.

"It took a long time to learn to be a Shifter, luckily my parents started me young learning the basics of magic.  I never knew any society lived or even could live without magic.  So the Coalition when I learned about it fascinated me. To me living without magic would be like taking my eyes and ears from me, they have become so much a part of me." 

"I come from America too originally even though I settled down among the fey here for a while, their magic is quite different from what I am used to. They seem as much a part of the world of magic as dragons."

"What made you join the Coalition then ?  To see the world ? or protect humanity or something else ?"
He asked genuinely curious.

Squeezing his hand, "If you don't want to talk about the
      Splugorth, I don't mind." In reality, her tone is more like 'I
      would actually prefer not to talk about the Splugorth.'

"If you don't mind tell me, why did you decide to study magic? I
      don't believe you are one of those with innate magic," the red
      headed scout continues. "Was it that your family are wizards?"

"Most of my family did not have much interest in the military,"
      she adds. "As much as I love me home, I do like traveling and
      enjoy the wilderness. Could do with being shot at a little less
      however. Glad I was not born near Chi-Town though, they are nuts
      up there."

        think you will like it. The people we fought are not Splugorth
        but just their slaves and servants. They are powerful beings
        Alien Intelligences who would pretend to be gods though they
        have enough power to back up such claims.There is more then one
        too, I have been to other dimensions where they are a problem. I
        fear we only saw a tiny amount of their troupes the other day.
        Still that loss will give the people of the tree time. Splugorth
        don't tend to be hot heads and after such a loss they will plan
        for any next attack. I guess if you live forever you can afford
        to be patient."

        they are ever to be sent packing it will take some pretty
        overwhelming force but if the Splugorth bite off more then they
        can chew and upset enough people they might just face combined
        forces which could do it. Heck the Coalition made a mistake
        hating magic so much just think if I opened a rift to some
        Atlantis city the Coalition could fire a barrage of missiles
        through it.  Unfortunatly the Splugorth due value both magic and
        technology. Right now I think I prefer thinking about you.  Your
        far more attractive."
