Though it’s only recently that she has returned. Megana Shadowcleft, Dark Shifter and Priestess of the Night Eternal, Lady of the White Tower, has yet to make an appearance at Pandemonium. That is, until now. Admidst the hustle and bustle of servers and the burble of a hundred voices raised in chat that is common in the between times of acts changing, she simply steps out of the shadows in a corner by the stage and strolls towards the bar.
Megana isn’t costumed for singing, nor is she wearing her usual battle gear or the dresses she’s become fond of, of late. She wears instead a white velvet cloak fastened at her throat and covering her body from neck to ankles. A movement of her arms as she reaches the bar reveals a blood red linen crop top and matching skirt and leather boots. A wicked looking sheathed dagger rests on her right hip, the flash of silver and a ruby in the pommel and her shiny black curls are piled up ontop her head and out of her way. Dark eyes scan the servers and bar tenders and then turn the patrons, apparently she doesn’t find what she is looking for and leans against the bar sighing softly in relief. “Well then, what now?” Megana murmurs.
We have a new server! Or at least temporary labor, and well she’s hard to miss, down right impossible. An almost 10 foot tall centauress can be seen trying to carefully navigate the club. On her lower back are a couple trays she somehow keeps balanced and another drink tray is being carefully carried in her left hand. She goes to a larger party table, getting teased and all, as even with the equine lower body, she is still quite the looker.
Kae’s tail lashes slowly and she sets drinks off the first tray on said table, quickly swaping to one of the trays on her back, and then swapping to the last one, getting 3 tables at once. She nods and smiles to them and backs away now, watching carefully behind her, before turning and heading back to the bar. Somehow, and it’s probably a miracle she doesn’t step on anybody… -this- time…
Those listening might know there’s a bit of a bet going on as to when she’s going to squish a toe or two…
Idly Megana wonders if she should put a stronger hand on the day to day reins of running the club but it isn’t as if she has the time for it and besides, so far He seems to know what he’s about. She also doesn’t want anyone knowing how closely tied she is to this place. Centaurs often prefer wilder areas too and so the new server ought to be a bit of a draw and that is part of the business plan. Uniqueness. Shrugging, the Shifter turns and smiles at the centuar. “How’s it going? Not too busy yet, I see.”
Kae pauses, nope she has no clue who owns the place, and looks to Megana… A lash of the tail and a brief shrug “Ok I guess? I got this like as a temp thing, needing money for school and food and all. Also, I’ve not stepped on any toes here in the club yet, so that’s good… Had a few people run into me, though didn’t spill anything.” She says and smiles cheerfully. “Anything I can get for you miss ummm…” She says and rubs at the back of her neck. “Oh, I’m Kaelyn….”
Kae says and smiles “Technically a changed and all, person who said I could help out here part time thought it was a good idea to have a changed person working here as a draw?”
Megana squints. So not natural born then. “Makes sense. No drinking for me tonight unfortunately. I’ve got things to do tonight and I can’t break this fast til after. Good for you though, you seem like you’ve landed on your hooves.” The Shifter smiles. “I sing here some nights, occasional days. When I have the time. Been awhile though. I’ve been…away for some months.” She eyes the stage. “I’ll have to schedule something in soon but there’s a lot I need to get caught up on and arranged before that.” Megana looks Kae over with greater interest. “How long have you been in Vesper? Oh, and I’m Megana. Megana Shadowcleft.”
Kae umms “Oh I was born here… Ma and pa have are crafts people…” she says and smiles…”Untill a couple years ago, I was Kullen… Needless to say, before you go on a bender with someone make sure you know who everyone is… And don’t try to drink an elder night god of Norse Mythology under the table, it won’t work out for you…” She says and motions to her lower half…
Kae then smiles “I’ve adapted, live goes on, found out there’s no way I can change back or be changed back, cept I guess by Loki, and he’s said he won’t turn me back, I’m too much fun, so, I live on, make the best I can of it..” SHe adds and grins brightly. “It’s not all bad though, I went from being a scrawny short uninteresting male to a big strapping centauress… It’s just different.”
The Shifter’s eyes narrow slightly and she withholds a sigh. Another god making an appearance in her territory. It isn’t as if there is a shortage of them. Well, it makes things interesting at least. Interesting enough that she’s made a home here instead of just keeping her room at Gran’s. Though it’s true her adopted family has a part in that as well. “Sounds about right for these parts. At least you seem to be managing.” She knows people who haven’t handled such things nearly as well. “You have a good way of looking at it. That’ll help.” Meg tells the Centauress.
Kae shrugs “WEll it’s that or be upset about it and be reminded about being upset every time I put on a shirt, try to get up, have to pay a food bill, have to go to a blacksmith to get fitted for shoes… List is endless… Ooh go through a normal door jam… That’s tough at times, I gotta kinda duck down and well squish in to fit through… sometimes my barrel rubs on the outside of the door jam, being a ‘draft horse model’ and all.” She says and grins before winking. “The food bill is the toughest… I’m still an omnivore, so I can eat anything a normal human does, and well just lots more…” she taps her lip and shrugs “A whole lot more…”
“Where are you from originaly?” Megana asks. At least it sounds like this one is from this earth this time. Still, she’s glad she left Lli Chibt drinking at Gran’s. No need to have a demon scaring the new people and she’s been away long enough there seems to be more than a few. Of course the club has grown in her absence and she’s glad. That means it’s doing well. The Shifter eyes the shelves behind the bar longingly for a moment. Ah well. She’ll drink well later, though not of alcohol. The effects will be.. even better. She smiles darkly before returning her attention to Kaelyn.
Kae shrugs “Born and raised here in this town, which makes my whole little run in all the funner cause I should know better who I talk to and what I say around here.” She says and grins just a bit sheepishly…
“Oh, well. That certainly makes it easier though. Imagine being put in another world, or land or time on top of it. I know people that’s happened to.” Such things don’t disturb her at all, she is a Shifter. Megana knows the effects and damage it can do to regular people however. “Things happen though. Best not to beat yourself up over it. Besides, I’d think that has more advantages than not. As long as you stay away from Dogwood and such that is.” Her lips quirk wryly. “Least it didn’t happen to you in a place like that. You might not have made it out. It’s reasonably safe here for people like you and people in general really. Or as safe as it gets in this world.” Meg adds thoughtfully. “That reminds me. I gotta check on the beastmen’s pocket dimension. The Dark Lady only knows what those little bastards have been up to without me.”
Kae tilts her head “Beastmen’s pocket dimension?” She asks curiously, equine ears pricking up before she tilts her head and gives a shrug.. “OOh I’mma go grab this next batch of trays, then Imma done for the afternoon.” She says, long black tail flicking as she gives a bright smile…
She all but trots slowly back to the bar, pausing there, tail flipping as she grabs a trio of large trays, all of these loaded up with drinks. And it’s off to another table!
“Yeah. They’re.. my little race of minions. There’s usually a lot of them but there’s smarter rocks out there. Anyway I should get a move on too. It’s nice to have met you Kaelyn. Good luck with the new job. I’ll be..around so I’m sure I’ll see you again soon.” Megana smiles and watches the Centauress for a moment before shaking her head and chuckling softly. Loki is it? Something new to think about.. perhaps she can work this into some of her plans.. it’s good information to have in anycase and she’s sure there are people who’ll be rather interested in hearing about it. This club is coming in handy in ways she’d never dreamed when first approached with the idea. “See you soon.” Meg calls over her shoulder as she turns to go.
