Drink up, the Helghast Colonel's Happy hour

 [Today, the man who refuses to take off his mask with reddish eyes and complete with a gas mask is wiping the bar's counter]

Not sure who talked him into it, but he was providing today's happy hour.

The Helghast Colonel stood in the bar writing down specials for the day. 

"Welcome to my day"

Today's specials:

Fireball Whisky
Helghast Special- My own mix
Ludds Blood

The tables seemed to have some sort of theme today, they were covered with a blood red along with black line going through it.

A giant of a man approaches the counter with a smile, and points at the specials board. "Hi, I'm Baze Malbus. May the Force of others be with you! What's a Helghast Special?"

Baze boggles at the preciseness of the recipe. He smiles, wondering id this bartender is more droid-like than others.

"Then I'll have that," Baze says, nodding exactly once. "Sounds delicious. Do you need the mask to breathe?"

Baze frowns a tiny amount, but is soon back to grinning again. "I know a little bit about invaders," he says, shaking his head. "But congratulations on your rank of Colonel. How did you get promoted?"

iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

"A military academy! That must be rewarding," Baze says, leaning on his elbows on the counter. "What does ISA stand for?"
iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze blinking (if you say so)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-19 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
"Why'd they join with Earth?" Baze says, blinking at the droid-like man. "And do you want to be feared?"
iprotectyou: Baze looking off to the side, wrinkling his nose (how about no)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-19 11:34 pm (UTC)(link)
"Baze," he says, drawing himself up to his full height. "Can you read minds?"
iprotectyou: Baze Malbus holding his heavy repeater rifle and raising his brows (I think not)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-19 11:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Baze settles again, still wary. "Yeah, lucky guess. So you said you were mutated? What kind of mutations?"
iprotectyou: Baze aiming a bazooka cannon with a red tint (welcome to the gun show)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-20 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
"Is your sight affected?" Baze asks, eyeing him back. "Can you see better, or worse?"
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-20 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
Baze laughs, caught off guard. "No one's ever pointed that out to me, but I guess I do. You can ask some questions yourself, you know."

Quentin's trying to make his hair neater when he enters in a t-shirt and jeans with his pointed ears showing through his bronze hair.

He stares at the red on the tables, that's not a comforting color and then at the man, maybe behind the counter and leaves a little space between him and the counter, "Um, could I just get a coffee?"

He blinks at the question and stands taller, doing his best to be noble and disdainful, he has practice,

"Daoine Sidhe, what are you?"

[personal profile] heatherandsteel 2017-09-20 12:56 am (UTC)(link)
"That doesn't tell me anything except that you're in some sort of army. Is a Helghast your species, your race?"

Quentin reaches out for the coffee, moving a little closer to the counter, that's a lot of armor.

He shrugs and takes another drink, "Have you ever been here before?"

"Oh and she made you bartend," Quentin smiles as he does like Bar, she reminds him of how his world works.

"I don't know what's expected of a Helghan so I don't know. I mean I get how duty is, its always present and its nice here to not have to worry about it,"

The duty doesn't go away but in Milliways, it doesn't press.

"War tends to take up a lot of time. But you still do eat and drink?"

Maybe not, perhaps that armor feeds him or something.

Quentin watches the writing, not sure why its being done now, "You mentioned the Isa invaders. What are they like?"

[personal profile] heatherandsteel 2017-09-20 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
"But you consider yourself a Helghan? Where did you live before? Teams of what?"

Perhaps its about pride, taking the name of their place of exile or punishment, he's not sure which.

"So the planet's named for the people who found it, but its not your homeland?"

He feels like he's missing some part of it. Its a common story, land is power.

"Which you're going to use to take on ISA and take back Helghan? Are you also trying to conquer Vekta?"

It sounds like one of those wars that's never going to end.

"Oak and ash, that's horrible,"

War is bad enough but to fight until no one's left, that's a terrible waste of life and doesn't serve much purpose.

"That usually needs someone to end it,"

Which is hard, war has an inertia to it, he learned that not long ago.
heatherandsteel: from hip2bsquareicon on IJ (bad idea)

"What's your cause? We were here first, because the other side could probably say something similar,"

From what he's said, that's what it sounds like though both planets were settled later. Its been a cause in many a Fae and mortal war.
