Tyr walks out and at first the woman has disappeared. Out of the corner of your eye however you see the flicker of a tail. Dip around a corner of a wooden stand a couple dozen yards away. You turn the corner and see that it is a staircase that leads to some sort of under pier infrastructure. It runs under the pier and possibly into the ground. The water is level with the wooden plank walkway, giving extra noise for each additional step. You notice something in your pocket. Taking it out it’s a small piece of paper with a version of thieves cant written on it “Follow Me.” It translates to.
Hermenor you see Tyr turn a corner and disappear down the pier a bit of the way.
Prtion - you don’t see much. Mostly people just working on boats and the docks minding their own business.
Hermenor doesn't want Tyr to be alone or too far from help. He continues following him towards the pier under which he saw the tabaxi disappear. Hermenor keeps his distance a bit, to ensure not ruining this cat-folk meeting, but wants to be close by in case of an emergency. Also, he keeps an eye out for anything suspicious.
Tyr- She turns down a corner, in pursuit you follow as well. As you turn the corner you met with a dagger to your throat. The blade pressed against your fur as the tabaxi holds in place. “Who sent you? Why are you looking for Elena Stormspeaker?”
Hermenor you notice Tyr stop abruptly at the corner in the distance. Not quite in a battle stance, but his demeanor has shifted and you can’t tell why. (Or I should say, no visual evidence as to why)
Hermenor takes a few more steps toward Tyr and prepares a dart in his hands. If he sees what is causing Tyr to change demeanor and it happens to be the other tabaxi as he suspects, then Hermenor will use his reaction to release the dart if and only she attacks Tyr.
"Yes, I'm with the guild. We have been investigating something of strange nature. Black crystals that corrupt people by tethering them. I'm just trying to learn about mysterious disappearances or any strange new people in town. Does any of this sound familiar?" Tyr remains calm as he speaks, it clear this isn't the first time he's had a blade at his throat.

The tabaxi gives a smirk. “Out to save the world are ya? Didn’t peg you for the type. I have some business around town, but nothing about movin’ people around. The only thing I can tell you is to check out the underchannels. It’s a natural cave system that runs underneath the city. Most people don’t know about it, but most people ain’t up for piratin’ and bootleggin’ neither. It floods with high tide, and it’s filled with nasty critters. Anything nefarious going on around here and people ain’t seen it, it’s happening there.”
The Tabaxi removes the blade quickly. Slinking away with a purr before jumping up to the next story and climbing up onto the main dock disappearing from sight. You feel confident that this was Elena.
Hermenor - You see Tyr relax.
Ragnir - the drink is warm and barely suitable to drink. The kind of drink you think would be sold super cheap to men that have been out at sea for weeks to months. Honeyton begins to run and scratch against the bar before you hear a low cracking noise as the bar begins to bend and giveaway.
Priton - 13 - you hear a quick splash down on the side of the dock. Walking over to look down into the water. You see two small webbed flipper feet slip into the water.
Priton will go over to Hermanor and Tyr if he can see them "Hey mates, some webbed thing went under the water. Think it might be going into them sewers?" He says as he points to about where it went into the water
