Ysalwen steps through the front door, looking lighter and less troubled than she has in weeks. Having your apprentice settled into a Tal-Vashoth mercenary team -- the Valo-Kas, as it happens -- will do that. Particularly given that they are newly formed, though taking in members of several different mercenary bands with a great deal of experience.

Meraad liked them, and James found very little to complain about with any of its members, so.

Ysalwen settles herself at a corner booth, pulling out her tablet-book and pulling up three holographic windows. One contains a complicated nuclear decay simulation, another has some sort of energetics equations on it, and the third is playing Die Hard. She's been told it's a quite interesting play, and so.

Liranan has settled underneath her chair, ready to take a nap while she works. He may come out when the movie's gunfire starts, or he might just roll his eyes and go back to sleep.

Beat. "- was you?"

"I... think I'm glad I missed that."

Hera would really rather stay in her own body, thanks.

"The magic?" Hera asks.
for_everyone: (have hope)

After a moment, Hera answers, "We don't normally use those kinds of words."

But it's not exactly a 'no.'

Hera takes her time in answering. She doesn't see reluctantly, but like she's choosing her words carefully.

"There's something in our universe that we call the Force. Certain people are sensitive to it, and that gives them abilities most don't have."

She lets out a breath. "Some species call that magic, but that's not very common now."

Hera pauses, and then shrugs.

"I think some in the galaxy use 'magic' for things that aren't possible through the Force, but..."

She lets that trail off for a moment, and then, "I'm not a Force user. I don't really know that much about it, or what those possibilities are."

A little more quietly, "There aren't... that many of them left in our galaxy now, either."

"I don't think there's anything wrong with admitting it."

Though Hera has no idea if this is some kind of common occurrence across universes.

Hera sighs. "I wouldn't really look to my galaxy as an example for anything, at the moment."

Hera looks sideways at the holo.

"I really don't think I can help with the human."

This doesn't seem to be any universe she recognizes, aside from all the humans.
for_everyone: (talk to it right)

Hera shrugs, a little awkward.

"I'm not too great at comedy, either."

After another pause -

"I'm okay with following your lead."
