David nods at the woman that came in, but seeing as she is apparently busy with something he decides not to disturb her. When the giant black lynx walks out of the wall he stares at it. The meeting with the shadow lady has learned him that it probably isn't Nocturne, so he isn't shocked like when the shadow lady appeared, but he studies it intensively. Are those shadow flames? He has heard about how in the Shadow Isles and other dark places necromancers and other dark practitioners would use flames of shadow to give their victims a fate worse than being burned to death with normal flames. When the lynx solidifies and the flames disappear he shakes his head. If they really were shadow flames they probably wouldn't be allowed in here, and if the creature got them in there's no reason for it to remove them. It's quite a big lynx though, bigger than those that David has encountered in the wilds. He continues studying the lynx, although he remembers to continue reading from time to time. First the shadow lady, then the phantom knight, and now this giant shadow lynx. The rumours now seem much more likely to be real than yesterday, when the entire place seemed devoid of everything besides David himself and the junior knight, and of course the shadow lady. Although it's curious how so far the extraordinary creatures all have a kind of dark theme, just like the rumours are mostly about things like shadow users, succubi, dark dragons and creatures that look like they are made for slaughter. David personally finds the succubi the least likely. The other creatures could all be thought to hang out around here, but from his childhood memories he remembers being told that demons are the personification of evil things, so they probably wouldn't waste their time in this place where all those things aren't permitted and very heavily guarded against.
