Little did the people of Bale realize, their rumors were often a fountain of information for the inquisitive Wingly. After his meeting with King Albert he had spent some time simply listening, and learning more of the situation affecting Serdio at large. Seles was under assault, and no information had been getting in or coming out for some time now. The last reports had been that the citizens still lived and the city itself still stood, but that wasn't a guarantee any longer.

Curiosity, and perhaps some other motives, getting the better of him Lloyd set off to investigate the situation himself. While humans on horseback or foot could not break the lines, a Wingly under cover of night could slip past quite easily. After observing from a safe distance for a time he flew silently over the troops surrounding Seles and landed on the other side of the wall, straightening out his robes from the flight.

So, Seles had been repaired. Unfortunate that it was so convenient to lay siege to.
Current Location: Seles, Serdio

Prowling they were, very close in fact as Lloyd was more than capable of sensing them not far beyond the wall. Regardless, for the moment they did not appear to intend immediate attack which was good, an attack would put a damper on any information gathering Lloyd intended to do.

He was mildly startled to see the knight that stepped around the corner of a nearby building. Lloyd made no move to conceal himself, assuming such an act may get a sword drawn on him.

Seles was very quiet, he'd be hard to miss.

"I was unaware there was a curfew." Came the indifferent reply, Lloyd tilted his head to the side slightly, scrutinizing the knight before him. The man looked exhausted, what did they not bother rotating shifts these days? A tired knight was as useful as no knight at all.

Lloyd didn't appear impressed, he just shrugged and gestured vaguely. "I do not intend to remain overnight, regardless unless you have an Inn with open rooms that will not be possible." No, he obviously wasn't from around there at all. Though for the moment he made no hostile motions, but was watching Coen intently. His nervousness showed clearly and Lloyd was prepared if he decided to grow hostile.

"Tell me of the situation facing Seles."

Again, Lloyd gestured dismissively. "I had assumed a knight would be capable of giving a better answer than 'look for yourself', though if that is all you are good for then I suppose I have no other choice." He probably wasn't winning himself any points with Coen with his attitude, not that he cared.

"Ah, so it has been rebuilt..." That was muttered more to himself than to Coen, as Lloyd turned enough to glance down the street. Maybe he would stay for the evening, he could use some rest. Besides, didn't the Red Flame and Moon Child still live there?

Not that they'd be too pleased to see them, it was likely the King would be letting them know of his presence before long.

Again, the hooded man gestured dismissively. "I only mocked you," A slight smirk with that. "Very well. Perhaps when you are rested you will have information." Granted it was very unlikely he'd want to talk to Lloyd after this, though he thought better than to press the issue at the moment. Starting a fight with a knight while surrounded by them would probably end in unnecessary bloodshed, and Lloyd hadn't come to start a war.

This time. He took a step back as Coen advanced, showing no will to fight for the moment. Best to stay on somewhat reasonable terms.

"Simply curious," that indifferent tone again. "Some may... I will respect your curfew for the evening, if I may have my leave?" Angry knight indeed, Lloyd found found it mildly amusing how easy it was to rile him up. He stood his ground, now that Coen apparently had changed his mind about letting him just go to the Inn.

Someday Lloyd needed to learn social graces.

He even received a slight bow in farewell, the hooded man wasn't completely impolite at the very least. Lloyd would indeed go to the inn, even book a room. That didn't mean he'd stay there all night, of course, but Coen didn't need to know that.
