"What gate? I see no-" In that moment, the world seemed to shift in a pirouette, just like the Harlequins that he faced. And suddenly, Onvar stood on grass, and the scenery was a new one. He and the masque had materialised before a camp, with a shallow cave in the background, the Death Jester already standing before it. How did he arrive before us? Wasn't he with us just a moment earlier? But in the time travelling with harlequins, Onvar had learned that it was useless to question these things. It had been ....interesting, to say the least. While speaking to them might strike one as confusing at first, Onvar felt that there was method between all those illusions and jest, and had found them to be quite fascinating. Meanwhile, their means of travel he just ad an irk with, it didn't feel quite right how their portals warped the webway in strange ways. While the masque descended onto the unprepared adventurers, Onvar found the time to size up his future comrades. He was suprised when he saw multiple corsairs in the group, one looking a bit battered and very close to a noblewoman. One of the Dire Avengers had put up his cape and seemed quite tired. Strange. Have they seen combat? As expected, his two aides didn't really have the intention to leave his introduction to himself, so he just issued a silent greeting, as the Harlequins were already proceeding. While watching, he met the gaze of a blonde exodite, but on closer look he judged her as more of a corsair with a particular fashion sense. Her smile somewhat calmed him, and in the very last moment one might have seen a glimpse of mischief entering his eyes, and a brief chuckle changing the noble lines in his face in a fascinating play of light and shadow. When, suprisingly, the Ranger spoke first, Onvar took that as an excuse to close in to the group. "Well, I bring greetings from Biel-Tan, along with good wishes for your sucess. As for our wandering cousins here," he gestured towards the masque,"Let us just say they are very adept at keeping their secrets. As it is their good right." he added, with a nod towards the Death Jester.
