|Holding himself proudly, the Helmaroc King approaches the Phantom. With a respectful bow of his head, yet keeping his eyes locked on the man, the large bird says "Greetings, Phantom."|
-My gaze calmly drifts up to the enormous Kargaroc like bird, and I cock my head to the side.- You are the Helmaroc King who sought to take over my temple, if I memory serves me well. -I fold my arms.- What is it you want?
A small smile tugs at the corners of his beak as he recalls the memory. Indeed, the first time the Helmaroc King had visited this temple, he tried to take it over. “Your memory is correct,” he says, raising his head slightly, “But I have not come here to try and take it over again. You see, I have found myself in a bit of a… situation. And after speaking with Keirin, she informed me you might be able to assist me.”
-I fold my arms.- You have my attention. What is this situation?
Glad he has the attention of the man before him, the Helmaroc King says “Not so long ago, I encountered the hero known as One. He and I fought- but I was unable to kill him. Rather than kill me, the boy placed a curse on me. While I am under this curse, I am unable to kill the hero, and I am also forced to do whatever he asks of me.”
Ah… yes. That foolish boy. -I think over your words, before looking hard at you.- Did you come to me under his command, or are you here under your own will?
