The Thetas are all too aware of the fact that they're being looked at with curiosity, fear, and possibly contempt, but they deal with it; it's how they work.
Onix looks at Ryltar and Lynx first, knowing that the drow mage will be keeping an eye on him and his squad-mates. Lynx he's not sure about, but regardless, she helped him, so he'd give her the benefit of the doubt.
Zarae, and Lothir seemed a bit on edge with him and his squad. Nothing out of the ordinary.
At Drakins comment, Onix actually burst out laughing, which was followed by audible snickering from the squad; "if that is what passes for a 'cheap shot' around here, then you guys haven't really fought in a full-scale war have you?" Onix said to no one in particular.
It was the over-sized imp that caught the clone off-guard; "gargoyle, if you
had one of those things, I think then we'd all be FUBAR or Vithus phor trantz myar, and that's putting it lightly."
Do we still intend to head to the Underdark?
"Great. So are we going hunting for these eggs, or what? Show me how to use this thing, and let's get going."
"Do we still intend to go to this expansive underground system to hunt these eggs down and kill 'em off, absolutely; but as Zarae has already explained to me, this Underdark is as big as this continent, Faerun. Which means that me and my squad don't have the slightest clue as to where to start; and before you say something, the Leecher queens are created using dark sorcery and advanced cloning procedures, which makes them immune to any scrying attempts, I believe is the correct term, that one might make," Onix explains with a little anxiety in his voice.
"In order to get a good, general idea of where the bug has laid its nest, me and my squad need to return to our ship with the bug, take some samples of its armor, then compare it to geological data on the continent. So, to be blunt, this is my saying to all of you that if you wish to continue to help me and my teammates, then I'm gonna you to come with us back to the Nighthammer
," the clone said flatly, not surprised by the brows that shot up to his statement and request.
