@Maleth @GoreWrencha Serpent nodded to Argos in agreement. "Ah, no. No excrement-monsters." Serpent said with a smile while he walked with Phoenix, ruffling her hair in a gesture of camaraderie. He had to bow a bit not to hit his head on the door frame when leaving the briefing room. "At least, I hope not." He added with a chuckle. "Keep it Serpent from now on, okay? Let's get to the car, Darkling." His original name brought with them the memory of his family and loved ones. They didn't know of his current state and he didn't plan on telling them. Things were too different now, all they know he is still MIA. Acting like his past didn't exist helped coping with the sudden mutation.
