The man seemed to look at Everleigh for a brief moment, looking at her with confusion before he looked back towards Liliana.

A nod dipped the Noblewoman's head.

"Most of them with the mages."​

A frown touched Liliana's lips almost instantly. That presented a problem, but then again...if the Mages were taking all the magic users then that was likely where many of the other Initiates had ended up after the mess on the beach. Not that it mattered much.

They were here for only one person. "What about Idrig, darling? Have you heard of anyone with that name here?"

"I...ma...yes. Yes...He's with the mages. They took in some days ago..."​

A curse escaped Liliana's lips.

For a brief moment she considered, blancing to Everleigh, then to the prisoners. "We'll need to create a little chaos."

Probably more than a little.

Oh. Tonight kept getting better and better. No, really, it was, at least for Everleigh. She tilted her head down, grinning and wrapping her arms around herself to keep her from shaking from the sheer excitement of it all. Not only could she be killed by a giant fireball, she was going against mages who didn’t seem human, it was seven to two, she could be captured and forced to live a horrible, miserable existence, and she could find out that Idrig was possibly dead and they had done all this hard work for nothing. Things were always so much more exciting with either side had so much to lose.

Liliana’s words broke Everleigh’s glee, causing her to clear her throat and look back at Liliana with that stoic gaze. She nodded her head. It seemed Liliana had a plan, and Everleigh watched her as she glanced to the prisoners. Oh. Good idea.

Leave it to me,” Everleigh said with a smile, eyes glowing. For a moment they were violet but a second later they had turned gold. She steadied her breathing, coming to the first cage and checking out the lock. There was no need to try and find the key. It just made more sense for Everleigh to hold it in both her hands. Moments later, a sizzling could be heard, steam rising up between the crevices of Everleigh’s hands. Her eyes were still glowing gold and she concentrated, the sweat from her hands aiding her acidic touch. It was a newer ability she had discovered and it came in handy. After a little of a minute, the lock on the cage had eroded just enough so when Everleigh pulled on it, it snapped right off.

I think the candles will be a good touch. Give them a little taste of their own medicine. I’m sure if they were all knocked over the tent would go up in flames.” She said slyly, heading over to the next cage and repeating her actions. After the first lock, the next ones went by much quicker.

Lovely.

It seemed that her new friend was far more useful than she had originally anticipated her to be. Perhaps there was a lesson to be learned in that, though it wasn't like Liliana would pause long enough to actually take note of that.

There was to much to be done. With a smile she quickly followed behind her companions wake. Only stopping to turn back towards her transfixed Guardian. "Stay there, precious."

Liliana purred before she moved to the entrance of the first cage.

She did not use the weavings as she arrived at the prisoners, instead she simply used her words. Quick whispers, quiet words, and assuring promises were more than enough for the newly freed slaves. A pat on the cheek and a quick terse plan captured most of them.

The same could be said for those in the second cage that Evereleigh opened, and then for the third as well.

By the time all of the cages were opened the two Initiates had a small army of fourteen men and women. All of them were haggard and worn, but that didn't particularly matter. They were a distraction, nothing less, nothing more.

"This will be enough." Liliana mused to Evie. "They will 'escape', and we'll find those mages."

She glanced towards her pet guard. "With a little help, no?"

Everleigh shrugged. Fine. No fire right now. But later. Once the mages were handled, Everleigh was going to burn this place to the ground. Or at least burn one big tent. She looked over at their tiny army, and frowned. She began to deftly pull the weapons out hidden throughout her body, producing five flat steel blades, six throwing spikes and two daggers. She had licked the blades or their points, and glanced back at Liliana. This was all she was willing to part with, and she set them on the ground before the freed prisoners.

Don’t prick yourselves unless you want to die.” She warned, before pausing, taking two of the flat blades and handing them to the two freed corsairs. Made more sense for the most skilled of the prisoners to get the better weapons. Everleigh nodded approvingly at her idea. Hopefully each person could at least take out some of those guards for them, then. She then looked over at Liliana.

Let’s get started. Idrig is waiting.” She said with a smirk. Despite appearing just fine, Everleigh could feel the needle of worry. She needed water, especially after using so much fluid in general. Her throat did feel dry. However, she had other things she could use if desperate, namely blood.

There would be no argument from her. "Alright."

Liliana briefly glanced at their 'army'. Pathetic as it was, she knew that there was little doubt in her mind that they were useful. Even as little more than fodder, they would serve a purpose. That much she was sure of to her very core.

A breath filled her lungs.

She shot a glance towards Everleigh for a moment, judging her. Was she ready for this? Was Liliana ready for this? There was no small amount of trepidation to her. She did not like being on the frontlines, less so in a siutaiton like this.

"Lets go." She pointed to the others. "Run to the waters, the ships, as fast as you can."

It was the opposite direction of Idrig, of those mages.

Some seemed to flicker, looking at her, and then it began. The prisoners stalked out of the tent, some holding Everleigh's weapon, others rushing forward. A roar escaped from them, and soon after chaos broke loose.

Everleigh was still as the freed began moving. She didn’t move until that roar of defiance rang out among the camp. She pulled out two throwing spikes, licked them to administer toxins and had just finished as two pirates rushed into the tent.

“You!” One of the men shouted, most likely about to say more but Everleigh was poised to throw. The flick of her wrist was quick yet sure, the spikes hitting both of the unassuming pirates squarely in the throat. It wasn’t long that they were choking on their own blood, their lips turning blue. Everleigh looked back at Liliana and nodded her head, a silent “let’s go.”

Everleigh was the first out of the tent, peeking out of the flap, wishing that she had a shard of perfectly tempered steel or a mirror to really see what was going on. But Liliana was correct with the plan to make a distraction because as far as Evie could see, it was working. And quite well.

A deep breath. The moment she exhaled, Everleigh was off, dashing to where the guard had told Liliana the mages were. It was best to catch them now, when hopefully, they could still be surprised. After all, the mages were the real problem. Especially if they weren’t human.

Liliana moved after Everleigh as soon as she darted out of the tent.

Her magic rushed outward, the weave, the press of it casting over the others who were all around them. It was a net that reached out, dragging over the minds of the former prisoners. All of them seemed to stop for a second, and then a press pushed against their mind.

It was instantaneous, powerful, and utterly violent. The men and women who had a second ago just been released from their cages turned into rabid dogs.

A loud roar escaped form the prisoners as Liliana, the enraptured Guard, and Everleigh slipped through the the tent city. Every last man and woman who had been within the cages rushed out, rage, anger, and utter hatred on their faces.

They rushed and attacked anyone they saw, stabbing with Everleigh's needs, tearing at flesh, screaming like mad dogs.
