A simple scouting mission in the caverns of Quasis' homeworld. What do the two of them see that we don't?
Quasis - A reptilian alien from a faraway world sent to Earth against his will through curious means. He was forcefully bound mentally with Edana whom sheltered him from the prejudice and suspicion one of his kind received on this world. He never left her side, the bond they share only growing stronger. An incredibly flexible and highly acrobatic swordsman, a curious black material coating his body has enhanced his form as well as given him the curious ability to snap between two points in space.
Edana - A human female born with a terminal mutation with a silver lining; the ability to manipulate fire and ice. She underwent a hard life, causing her to become cynical and distrustful, especially towards men and even more so aliens. A perfect night was ruined as one such alien appeared before her, a subconscious trait attacking her, ironically binding her to this creature against her will. From that point on, she shared his life, felt his pain, and protected him from society. It changed her, extending her life, allowing her to feel compassion, as well as mutating her abilities even further.
The two now live side by side, watching each other's back, living and loving life.
