Secret info is hidden... Somewhere.
Carefully her steps fell on the path silently. While it had difficult to retrieve information in the harbor, she had received some. Ruvari knew that it was her fault she had such trouble getting any information while talking to others. She was always standoffish, but being in a new kingdom seemed to push her silence and abrasiveness to the surface. Still, she knew she would have to eventually work on her callous nature some day. Though this new demeanor was of no concern to her at the moment.
Her footsteps were even and calculated as she kept her eyes forward. Ruvari had arrived in the afternoon hours at the harbor and due to all of the talking, which she despised, the hours and sun had begun to diminish by the time she had set out on her way. However, it was not the dim light of the falling sun that kept her on edge. The cawing of ravens sounded from a nearby tree yet she was focused. Crunch... Footfalls, not her own. They could not be from a heavy beast as her own steps had seemed to cover the sound for a time before she picked it up.
There was little she wasn't prepared for. Even a ghoul or lycanthrope stalking her would meet its end if it chose to jump out at her. But this was not a mindless and bloodthirsty beast. Quickly the elvish woman made an account of the distance between the figure and her. While she couldn't see them, her enhanced hearing was incredibly attuned. Still, it took time for her mind to process the information and make an educated guess.
Yet the sound of footsteps began to be drowned out by the flow of the river that began to cascade before her path. A tender rock bridge had been built, and while Ruvari knew nothing of Azuria she had assumed she would at least be able to see the capital. Though all that surrounded the elf woman was tall trees, deep green brush, and the dirt path that she had been told was the way to the kingdom. "If this is an ambush..." Slowly Ruvari's pace began to come to a crawl as she came to the stone bridge.
