"You're the fourth person I've brought back," I say matter-of-factly, "But you're the first one who's anything like you.

"The others, they were a good deal older."

"Oh," I respond a little hallowly, the blanket in my hand going slack as I give up trying to straighten it and pull it as tightly as she had on her own bed.

"I guess I'm just really good at messing things up, huh?" I say, trying to I inject a little humor into my voice as I smile back at her, though my posture betrays my sullenness.

"Hmm?" I hum back, finishing the bed with a flattened pillow at the head before looking up at him.

"Don't be silly, the others were really boring."

"What brought you to them then?" I ask curiously as I turn to plop down on my poorly made bed. "Did they do anything? Or just get lucky?"

With my bed made, I move to sit at the table near the door, my legs crossing as I look at him thoughtfully. 

"Well, my first job was an assignment, not entirely unlike yours, but not exactly the same. I knew who I was going to find before I ever left the Marches. More like I was going to just pick someone up." I explain, "After that, the next one was fleeing charges - for what, I can't remember - but she had happened across a colleague doing missionary work, and word was sent for me to meet him so I could retrieve her.

"The one before you, though, was a similar situation to yours. Only whisperings of something peculiar going on in a town just east of Hegburn, a few weeks west of where I'd found you. A mage was suspected, and I was sent to investigate. It took a bit of time, but I was able to track down an elderly man who's gift was becoming unmanageable due to his age. He's living in the Capital now, mostly muted, but on his clear days he's trained and exercised so he can still enjoy his gift."
