Birth by Storm

Once again Devroux found himself relaxing in the comfortable atmosphere of Teddy's. This bar was, beyond anything else he'd found in the world to date, the most comforting place the mink could find. Regardless of his appearance the patrons generally lacked any interest past his entrance and the wait staff continued and remained cordial and polite during every interaction. But above any of that was the consistency at which their whiskey was prepared the quality of the whiskey they used. The oaky after-taste was prominent and dignified, representing the barrels of which is was aged. While he remained on Baltigo, Teddy's would always be the number one spot Devroux would be visiting.

However, the consistency and reliability of Devroux's returns to the location made him easy to track for anyone that wanted to find him. Yet, even then, when one man walked through the door to interrupt his calming relaxation session, it was impossibly surprising and somehow amazing at the same time.


The door opened and an elderly man entered, sporting an attire that made him vastly out of place among the other patrons of Teddy's, even in comparison to the all-natural, naked mink that frequented the establishment. Devroux's eyes scanned the man from his beaten boots up through his brown, worn leather coat before reaching his face. Donning his signature gray, scraggly beard was none other than Tall Tale Tom himself, leaving Devroux completely speechless in response.

"It's been a long time, old friend!" Tom shouted across the bar, calling even more attention to himself than his attire already had. Completely ignorant of the attention now focused on him, the old man stumbled his way over to the counter where Devroux sat, his limp even more evident than it had been the last time they had seen each other. "I've been looking for you all over! I've got some very interesting tales to tell."

Birth by Storm

Drinking alongside his friend Devroux at a bar the mink had heavily recommended, Noctis took in the relaxed and calm atmosphere of Teddy's. Sipping the whiskey in his glass, Noctis couldn't remember a time where he had felt so carefree, the feeling was so foreign to him that it made him a bit anxious without realizing it. Beyond that, however, Noctis could easily see why Teddy's had received such high praise from the otherwise hard to impress Devroux. Even in spite of his anxieties, the patrons and employees' actions kept him wanting to stay. That, and the drinks were damn good. With the booze warming him from the inside, Noctis was content.

Yet the serene moment was interrupted as an elderly man who could have passed for homeless stepped into the bare without a care or trouble on his face, as if he not only belonged, but was a regular. It was a surprising sight, but not nearly as surprising as watching the normally stoic Devroux's face light up as he recognized the old man. Noctis sipped at his drink with the same awkwardness you'd see as a friend talking with an even older acquaintance of theirs might cause.

Causing a scene and general commotion, the old man yelled out to Devroux before hobbling over to the bar next to Noctis. Bringing in Devroux's attention, the man exclaimed that he had tales to tell. Completely flabbergasted, Noctis managed to to spit out a lone "What..?" as he listened on.

Cassius Sinclair
The Kraken



Cassius had stumbled across Teddy's mostly by accident, wandering the streets of Baltigo to better familiarize himself with the island. Outside it was hot, hotter than it had been since he first arrived. His initial instinct was to immediately dive into the sea and drift off to sleep until the night, but the last time people had observed him jumping into the water by the docks they had balked and scowled, just another reason for them to hate him he supposed. Just another way to highlight how different he was from the vast majority. Teddy's however seemed to offer a wonderful respite from the outside world, not only the heat, but from the people on the streets as well. Bars were comfortable for Cassius, homey and easy to blend in as most patrons lost themselves in their drink rather than bothering the ugly fishman who stank of the sea. As he opened the door, he noticed an older man hobbling rapidly towards him, his hand outstretched for the open door. Cassius obliged, holding it for the older man before turning and walking towards the bar, the old man following behind him.

He noticed a strange, black furred humanoid sitting beside another, more human looking person. They, like all the others in the bar seemed content in simply enjoying their drink unbothered; that is until the old man several paces behind Cassius piped up. Cassius was startled by the sudden, loud exclamation from the gentleman, but brushed it aside as yelling and excitement often occurred within the confines of such an establishment. Instead he took a seat one stool to the left of the more human looking one, a single empty spot separating them. As Cassius pulled out his pipe, held it up to his beard tendrils to hold and began to light it, he eavesdropped on the conversation behind him. Though it wasn't really eavesdropping per say, in fact he'd have to actively not pay attention to not hear what the old man was saying. Between the hobbling geezer and the strange black creature who no one else seemed to have a problem with, Cassius knew he was in for an interesting day. Puffing diligently on his pipe he stared ahead as if admiring the rows of whiskey and rum the bar offered, but all the while listening intently to what the old man had to say.
Ten thousand says he's a silly ole drunk. Cassius thought to himself, wagering a little mental bet while he listened.

Birth By Storm

Miles "The Unforgiven" Slovak

Miles began working at Teddy's as a musician just a couple of days prior to the current events, working the piano seemed like an easy way to lay low for a while. after being laid off at his previous work, a tavern two streets across, for murdering a civilian who worked for another bar. Incidentally, that civilian was the previous musician working at Teddy's. Miles was paid well to kill the guy but it would be the last paycheck he got from that pub. After a little job searching, he strolled into Teddy's one day and hadn't looked back since. That day Miles had been receiving a fair amount of tips in the jar sitting upon the piano, that was something completely unique to this bar, He actually got to keep whatever went into the jar instead of handing it off to the owner.

Miles was happily playing the piano when a human and mink duo walked in, the piano was angled in such a way that the player could view the entrance to see the coming and going of patrons out of their periphery while still being able to play. He was positioned near the back of the room on a slightly raised platform along with a worn down microphone that smelt like beer, nobody really paid much attention to Miles until they got up and left, some dropping a few spare notes and coins to pay respects to the artist. The door swung wide open as two figures appeared in the entranceway, a fishman of sorts and an old man in rags behind him. Miles paid them no attention until the loud bellowing of the old man, the piano playing stopped as he turned his head startled at the noise cutting through the regular commotion. "What in the...." Miles' voice trailed off as he tracked the man with his vacant gaze, moving his fingers once again and bringing the relaxed mood back to the atmosphere. Paying almost all of his attention to the unusual old man meant that he could find out what was his deal was disrupting the peace of a nice saloon like this.

Birth by Storm - Phase 1

Noctis’ interjection into their conversation made both Devroux and Tell-Tale Tom turn their attention on him for a brief moment. Tom had been hobbling his way all over Baltigo in search of the mink’s face due to their history, but his focus on him after finally achieving his goal made Noctis almost an alien species at that moment. The long-legged man’s words called Tell-Tale Tom back from his excitement, though it didn’t diminish it in the slightest. Devroux, on the other hand, had completely forgotten about Noctis’ existence when Tom arrived. His accomplice in recent times speaking up made him feel silly for forgetting, especially after what they had been through. However, more importantly than Noctis was the tale that Tom had come to tell.

“So,” the mink spoke, calling attention back to Tom. “How did you even find me?”

It was the first question in a series of them that Devroux had flying through his head, but it was also important information to have. If a crazy old bastard like Tom could find him, then he’d have to be more diligent about concealing his presence. Given the duo’s run-in with Clovis Adder, there were people that would likely pay a lofty price to get their vengeance.

It wasn’t until now that the fishman’s face registered in t Dev’s mind. He couldn’t quite place where they had met previously, but an ugly fishman like that was sure to leave an impression. However, the thought didn’t go too deep before his attention was called back to Tom, giving his brand of tell-tale truths.

“I walked! I started in the first district and worked my way up! I had Kenbunshoku active for days trying to get a glimpse of that aura.” As he said this, Tom motioned towards the sword, Yoru, that was always strapped to Devroux’s back.

The mink nodded in response. Tom hadn’t stumbled upon him, nor had he tracked bread crumbs. It was comforting knowing that he wasn’t that easy to find. Instead, Tom had done his due diligence and searched the entire island, an amazing feat for someone so old. What was more was that he said he had his Kenbunshoku Haki in use for days, but that was easily chalked up to story embellishment on Tom’s part. Beyond that though, Tom was smart looking for emotional auras. Since obtaining the sword the ominous emotions stored within its steel had diminished in strength, according to his perception, but it was understandable that others might not be as used to it as he was.

“Alright,” Dev said, continuing the conversation. “So what tale have you come to tell, Tom?”

“Seastone!” Tom exclaimed, visually excited once more.

Dev nodded, motioning for him to continue.

"It’s this ore or something that has the ability to stop devil fruit users’ powers from working when it’s close enough. I haven’t seen it myself, but the ocean is full of stories about it.”

Once again, the mink nodded, although this time he turned his attention towards Noctis. Rather than giving his own opinion on the matter just yet, he wanted to let his partner weigh in on it.

Cassius Sinclair
The Kraken




Cassius couldn't help but stare at the two men sitting at the bar even as the old man rambled on about some sort of big discovery and his trek all across Baltigo. He knew these two...but from where? Cassius stroked his tentacle beard in thought, musing over his memories of the last few weeks on the island when finally it struck him. Of course, the bat mink and the long leg with the busted ankle. He had met them on the pier some time ago. It hadn't been terribly noteworthy and he had interacted with so many strange people over the last few weeks that he didn't exactly feel bad he had forgotten them. Cassius smiled, these poor two bastards were getting their eat talked off by some old drunk. Cassius almost felt sorry for them, but went back to his drink and his thoughts only to hear the man blurt out, "Seastone!"

Cassius perked up as the man went on about its properties and mystical abilities to stop the use of devil fruit powers. He himself hadn't run into any devil fruit users quite yet, though he had a suspicion about the long leg boy and the little smoke trick he had pulled earlier with Cassius's pipe, but he had heard plenty of stories about the new strange fruits popping up all across the sea. They seemed unnatural and the name alone was enough to deter him. People were easily corruptible as is, humanity certainly didn't need this new tool under their belts. Deciding to seize the moment, Cassius stepped forward,
Oi, I thought I recognized you two. How's the ankle lad? Cassius asked, looking at Noctis before extending a hand towards the old drunkard,
Cassius Sinclair, how'd ya do? I couldn't help but over hear ya from down by the bar. Cassius said before dropping his voice to a hushed tone so only the four of them could hear,
It might be wise to lower your voice a bit if ye know what's good for ya.
He picked his head up and scanned the room carefully, catching eyes with the musician in the corner. Cassius gave him a nod of acknowledgement before turning back to the other three gathered around him.

Birth By Storm

Miles "The Unforgiven" Slovak

Miles listened to their conversation patiently as he ran through a tune on the piano, playing soft enough for him to still be able to catch the important parts. He didn't have much to do while he did his job in the bar so eavesdropping became a pastime as he played the day and night away, picking up the whispers of the patrons was fortuitous for his other business, personal information and blackmail came in handy if such an occasion arises where he had to do business with a patron. The musician might have vaguely caught a glimpse of that bat looking thing around here once or twice before but in the few days that he had been working this pub he hadn't seen a patron who carried themselves in such an uncouth manner, thus he couldn't seem to take his eyes off of that small group of customers. Miles found himself a tad confused when he saw the other creature that walked in with the old man, the fishman, sit down directly next to the group and listen in to their talking. Seeing that fish on legs peer into their conversation must've meant that he caught interest in the old man too, or maybe it was the other two fellows? Either way, this made the conversation that much more interesting

Growing up in the environment that he did, Miles never saw a creature other than human and the basic farm animals. It was only in the past two or three years that had spent on baltigo that he had encountered such people like minks and fishmen, holding them in higher regard than normal humans for their unusual and beautiful looks. Miles found his interest piqued when the old man mentioned "seastone", that word had been something he had been hearing for a couple of days now. Though he hadn't really heard what the hell it was, he knew that it was new and people were definitely willing to pay a huge price for it. The musician went to stand up but was interupted when he saw the fishman do the same and introduce himself as Cassius, he sat back down on the black leather piano bench for now. A couple of moments later the conversation dropped to a whisper, making it impossible for Miles to hear, at that moment the fishman took a glance at him and gave a nod before turning back. "Thankyou very much, I'll be back later" The musician said as he stood up from his chair and gave a bow, pocketing the cash that he had made that day from tips and heading in the direction of the suspicious group. Now that his cover had been blown he most aswell introduce himself.

"Good...uhh...whatever time of day it is," Miles stumbled upon his words as he tipped his cap. "Pardon my intrusion but I couldn't help but hear your conversation about a certain item of value." Not helping to listen in to this particular conversation seemed to be a trend today, that might just be saying something about the old man though. He then looked over to the bartender and slid a note across the counter, "A round for these fine gentlemen on me." Miles stood over the hushed group and leaned on the counter in a failed attempt to look suave, "I would be delighted to partake in this lil' conversation if you would do me the honor."

Birth by Storm

Devroux looked to Noctis to gauge how he felt about the tale Tom was telling, but his response didn’t come fast enough. Before he could say anything, the fishman interjected in the conversation, introducing himself. He also mentioned Nocts’ ankle, a question that jogged Dev’s memory and reminded him of where they first met. He was the ugly fishman the duo had run into at the docks, but he couldn’t remember if they had exchanged names back then.

“I don’t remember if I told you before, but my name’s Devroux. Devroux Alter,” he said, grateful that the fishman had already introduced himself once more. Though, grateful as he was for that, the conversation between he, Noctis, and Tom had just expanded to include yet another person that may weigh in on something Tom’s tales might grant.

Within moments of Cassius introducing himself into the conversation, the music in Teddy’s that so well set the atmosphere stopped, letting silence run over the bar. The musician then also inserted himself in the conversation, though he had no prior reasoning for talking to Devroux and Noctis aside from personal interest. But before Dev could excuse them from the conversation and move Tom and Noctis elsewhere, Tom did what he does best – tell tales.

“This island, Jordsand, is booming with activity all the sudden,” Tom said. He had lowered his town to a dull roar, but the excitement in his voice was nonetheless there. “If you’re interested, I can even take you guys there myself. I’m a navigator, after all.”

Within his mind Dev prayed that the fishman and the musician didn’t want to tag along, but the only thing he had to bank on that was the fact that they didn’t know Tom. With Tell-Tale Tom having been the one to lead Devroux to Yoru in the first place, there wasn’t any reason for the mink to distrust the raggedy, old man anymore. If Tom believed there was treasure to be had, he had Devroux’s full trust.

“I’m in,” Dev said. “I don’t know what’s there, but if you think it’s worth seeing, I can vouch for your credibility.”

Birth by Storm

Noctis was struck with silence as a cacophony of characters gradually began to center themselves around him. As soon as Tell Tale Tom showed up, his relaxing moment at Teddy's suddenly became much more. Not only that, he was doing his best to avoid drawing the fishman's attention. He didn't exactly do too much in the time since they last met besides getting his ankle fixed up, and Noctis had promised to repay him. Yet despite Noctis' best efforts, Cassius eventually connected the dots, and asked Noctis about his ankle.

"Ah, yeah. I got it all fixed up, basically good as new. It's still a bit sore every now and then but hey, couldn't have asked for more." Noctis replied to Cassius a bit hastily, as his attention seemed to be rapidly stolen away by Tell Tale Tom's stories. Not only did this character and acquantince of Dev's have some supernatural ability to weave stories, but he seemed inordinately strong. The old man's passing mention of having his Haki active for days put Noctis immediately on edge. His own experience with Haki was limited, but from what he had experienced, it taxed Adder so heavily that he couldn't even maintain it through an entire fight.

Just as Noctis was about to question Tom, another man interjected. The musician from Teddy's almost forced his way into the conversation and Noctis was beginning to feel just a bit crowded. Still, with an almost divine deftness, Tom drew him in once again. The island of Jordsand, a rare type of stone, the prospect of it all not only was attractive to Noctis' sense of adventure, but also his part-time profession as a materials expert.

The fact the man offered to take them all for free was suspicious, but Devroux seemed to wholeheartedly trust the man. With no reason to question his own friend's belief in Tom, Noctis chimed in as well. "You can count me in as well. I don't think I could pass this one up."

Standing up from his seat and grabbing the free drink he had been given, Noctis made his way out towards Teddy's entrance. Things were getting a bit stuffy, and Noctis decided to wait things out until it was time to depart. "Dev, give me a buzz when it's time to kick things off." Noctis announced, pulling out his Baby Den Den that he had synchronized with Devroux's and pointing to it before placing it gently back in his pocket. With things now out of his hands for the most part, Noctis took his drink and left the bar.

Cassius scowled as the musician stopped his music and approached the group, though he shouldn't have been surprised. If Tell-Tale Tom had been loud enough to attract his attention, surely there were others in the bar who had been listening to the man's ramblings. However, when Miles bought them a round on the house, Cassius relented, maybe having the musician around wasn't all bad after all. The bat mink introduced himself and Cassius mentally realized they had never exchanged names on that day. He nodded and said,
Nice to put a name to the face.
Cassius had never heard of Jordsand, though he had never heard of half the islands in the world considering how new he was to the surface. These people around him were complete strangers and for all he knew this could very well be a trap. On the other hand, there was no reason to trap Cassius. He had very little money, hadn't made any real enemies quite yet other than stepping on a few Marine toes and bumping into a few lowlifes around Baltigo. Not to mention he was getting a little sick of Baltigo, granted there was still plenty of work to be done before he could put his plan into action, but he needed a little vacation from the city of sin. What better vacation than hunting down some mystical rocks?

Oi, count me in. Cassius said with a nod towards Tom as his drink arrived. He took a long swig from the swill the barman was passing off as rum for the night.
I figure one of three things happens: A. We all die gruesomely. B. We get handsomely rich or C. Nothing because this little island and its magical rocks doesn't exist and this old man is drunk off his rocker. Still, at least one of those sounds good so I'm most certainly in.
Cassius placed the glass of rum on the bar top and stood from the seat he had taken next to Noctis.
Don't worry about finding me when it comes time to leave, I'm far better at finding you. Have a good night gents. Cassius said with a wave over his shoulder as he stepped through the front doors of the bar. He had some matters to attend to and things to finish up before leaving the island of Baltigo regardless of how long it may be.

Birth By Storm

Miles "The Unforgiven" Slovak

From the moment Miles stopped talking he could tell that most of them didn't want him there, which was completely understandable considering he stopped doing his job, joined their conversation and rudely interrupted. He didn't feel as bad as he should because of the separate interruption that occurred, so to him, it didn't really matter if one more person joined in. The old man rambled about some island called Jordsand, it happened to be a place that he had heard sailors sharing stories about. Apparently the place had been created from a freak whirlpool, a sea storm or even a hurricane; the story had been told that many times in this bar alone that the specifics of what it was were unknown to Miles, but he did know that it was somewhat of an archipelago with only the real good stuff on the main island.

There wasn't really much to be said then, his existence to the group consisted of scowls and stares, not even a simple hello. As soon as the drinks arrived, the musician grabbed a glass and went to raise it. But not before the dark haired human whom he hadn't caught the name of snatched his own beverage and took his leave, along with the fishman who he assumed was named Cassius from eavesdropping before took his drink and left, slightly more courteous than his predecessor. And with that it was just the three of them, the bat man, the old man and the musician. Now that the group seemed to have shrunk, Miles felt that now would be the time to add his two cents. "W-Well-" He stuttered then coughed, calling attention to himself and taking a sip of his drink. "I happen to have heard a few sailors tales while working and I would be glad to tell you what I know on the way over there." Miles finished the last drops of the glass and took a step back from the group, "I work here so you know where to find me when the time comes, if you have any questions just ask for me at the bar. I bid you both Adieu." Now away from the group, Miles walked out into the back room of the bar with a wave, such was the beginning of a new era of Miles' life.

Birth by Storm

Tell-Tale Tom took a seat next to Devroux at the bar as the other three left their group. The mink sighed in relief as they did, the attention in the room dissipating away from them a little as their group dwindled in size. Dev didn't mind taking the trip alone, as he was sure it'd end up fruitful when it was all said and done, but having some others there to witness how trustworthy Tom could be would help to justify him, and make him sure he wasn't crazy.

Tom leaned over and pat the mink on the arm. "Hey," he whispered, "On second thought, you arrange another ride."

"Uh... Why?"

"I forgot that I don't have a ship."

"So how'd you get here to begin with? How do you even boast about being a navigator if you didn't even sail yourself?"

"I swam."

Dev took another swig from his glass, waving for the bartender to tend to Tom. Using this man as a distraction meant he didn't have to reply to another one of Tom's more ridiculous sounding stories. It also gave him a minute to think about what needed to be done now.

Without a ship, he'd have to get one of the others to float them there, if they even could. If they couldn't, as the one vouching for Tom's credibility, he'd have to be the one to arrange them another means of travel. Tom, true to memory, was already stressing him out, but if they could find another Yoru, then it'd all be worth it once again.
