  • Dwi turns to the room of equipment, eyes wide. He gently strokes his beard, wondering where to start first, and nods — "this is quite the challenge," he mutters to himself, "but that never scared me before..."
  • Dwi does a double take, and looks around the room, "All of them?!"
  • The number of glitches in Celeste's projection are starting to make Dwi wonder — does she rely on ancient technology, too? Has she been suffering from the same seemingly random failures some of the older Taulan vessels have been experiencing of late…
  • Dwi's eyes go wide at the sheer number of artifacts before him. He fails to contain his excitement as he makes his way into the room, rushing from item to item, attempting to discern what he can recognize and what he can't. He's surprised that he re…
  • Dwi notes the pause in Celeste's explanation just before the "attention to detail" bit — is that supposed to mean something he wonders, suddenly a little unsure of himself. He bows respectfully at the compliment none the less, and follows Celeste ov…
  • Dwi nods, and stands up from his spot, Rocky rousing from his nap. He expresses interest in seeing her projects "at some point". Then they shake hands, and go their separate ways for the evening. END SCENE.
  • Dwi purses his lips, trying to decide whether Four is deflecting talking about herself, or if this is some complicated free-will thing, like the stuff TASHA hates talking about. He opts not to press it — at least not right away. They're going to be …
  • Dwi waffles on answering for a moment, "It's not that we don't eat communally — because we do. It's more so the act of sharing the same piece of food. In Taulan culture, sensitive immune systems have all but pushed out any physical contact to the re…
  • Dwi stops mid-suck of his finger when Nur's leaves turn scarlet, his eyebrows shooting up in surprise — did he say something wrong? Was this too forward? He briefly, reflexively shakes his head as she apologizes – then again when she explains her in…
  • A little bit of the still melted chocolate spills out onto Dwi's hand as Nur takes a bite. He huffs out a low, staccato "whew" as she finishes licking her lips. When she asks if he's going to have some, he shakes his head. "Sharing food like that is…
  • That catches Dwi off guard, because most of his favorite dishes are native Taulan — but there are a few comfort dishes he picked up from his father. He peruses the bins, and pauses a moment when his gaze falls on the old lady's "Rose Hip Tea" — his …
  • Dwi strides over to her with a bounce in his step, and nods graciously when Nur offers to let him lead — he doesn't have a clue where he's going, but he can always call TASHA if he gets them seriously lost. They walk the arcades of the market for a …
  • Dwi shakes his head, a sudden calm coming over him, "I don't mind at all... I don't suppose any of these vendors sell carrots, do they?"
  • Now it would appear it's Dwi's turn to stare — his eyebrow cocks as Nur's leaves shift in shape and color, and the redness in his face gradually spreads down his neck to his chest, softening to a gentle flush, and revealing silver hairs on his chest…
  • Dwi stands up straighter as Nur snaps herself out of the stare — he's not used to this kind of attention, and he's always assumed that people stare at him out of morbid curiosity, rather than attraction, or genuine interest. He looks Nur over, and n…
  • Dwi's smiles back before the confusion registers on his face at her use of the word "Absorb". The confusion doesn't last long, though, as it's eclipsed by the embarrassment of her looking into his eyes — they must be a mess, he thinks to himself. He…
  • Rocky's pleasure at being out and among people again – with a million new sights, smells, and sounds – comes through plain as day with raw excitement. He's full of kisses, and playful jumping. Dwi makes his way over to Nur, casually following Rocky …
  • Dwi shifts in his seat, his brow furrowed in thought as he eyes Four up and down. Her response bothers him, and he can't quite put a finger on why... "Does that bring you comfort? I never knew a Minister of the Doctrine that couldn't talk your ear o…
  • Dwi chuckles at her use of the term "Normal" — like there is some sliding scale where he passes muster. "I guess my point is, Minister, nothing about my circumstance and experience is normal — and at this point in time, I'm not sure I know how to be…
  • Dwi's leans in to the conversation as Four assuages him. "I don't know," he answers honestly, searching his memory for something worth sharing, "I've always been between two world, so to speak..." He sighs, and rubs at Rocky's tummy with the ball of…
  • Dwi is visibly uncomfortable talking about sensitive matters with someone he just met, but it's clear from his demeanor that this isn't his first rodeo with a counselor. His eyes are distant, staring out into the void surrounding the protostar Alpha…
  • Dwi had been feeling out of sorts. The Liminal had yet to make an appearance after summoning him to the Alpha Station via a high-priority quantum-entangled message, and the stress of not knowing precisely why he's been summoned on this voyage has st…
  • Dwi whistles sharply, and Rocky comes trotting to his side. "Yeah, dinner sounds like a good plan." Dwi has been eating synthetic meats grown in his ship for the past several months while out on a surveying job, so the idea of eating something with …
  • Dwi's gaze follows Nur's down to Rocky, and he scratches at his hair nervously. "Rocky? I mean, I guess..." He kneels down and ruffles a bunch of Rocky's scruff. "What do you think, eh?" Rocky barks a few times, perhaps in protest, and Dwi chuckles,…
  • Dwi makes his way over to the gathering crowd, and whistles for Rocky to stop jumping on people. "Sorry," he offers, as Four approaches, "Rocky isn't much used to new people — he gets all excitable..." He eyes Four's hand as she extends it, years of…
  • Liminal says "Jump"... Dwi's people are "technically" the Capital; but in reality, Dwi doesn't know what they think, or how they would even feel about something as legendary as the Liminal. To the Taulan flotilla, that's really what the Liminal is …
  • Now let's describe the Liminal... Describe your homeworld's public opinion of the Liminal. Describe an aspect of the Liminal's physical form. Describe a way in which the Liminal is showing signs of mortality.
  • Hi all — I'm Dwi. I'm here because the Liminal said so... Dwi is a young man approximately 30 years old, and of mixed evolutional heritage. His father, a former human ambassador of the Capital to the Taulan fleet, met and fell in love with his moth…
  • Dwi has been exiled from the capital, and will be accompanying you all, and the Liminal on your journey.
