Skarner's frown was immediately apparent on his maw. feebly, he attempted to collect the shards of the now destroyed vase, doing little more than collecting them into a pile with his claws, not able to do anything beyond that. Yet for as sad as he was, it was not for himself. Anemone, the girl he felt was like a daughter to him, loved the ruined pottery that now lay as a heap on the floor in front of him. He could not understand what motivated the Plague Rat's hatred of what seemed to be everything.
He was reasonably certain Elise would not have cared that her fellow champion had attempted to assaulted her, yet still, he wished it could have been different. For all the many years that he had slept, rested, he had hoped if nothing more could change within that frame, that blind hate would cease to be. That the pain it fostered could be quashed. That everyone could see a new beginning. More than anything else, it was for that reason that he let free a heaving sigh, knowing on some level that while his goal was noble, to give this world what it deserved, that it was bound to failure for decades, perhaps centuries.
He cast his gaze about, searching for the pink shimmer that would indicate Twitch's presence, even if it were only to utter a prayer in the language of the Arachia, one that no one would hear. A prayer to the earth itself for the wisdom to guide the demi-human to better things. And for the strength not to be destroyed by his own weak frustration. Prayer done, he returned his guest, to Elise.
"My apologies. Is there perhaps something you had wished to discuss? I fear it will be more trouble than it is worth to attempt to sway him at the moment, and so my attention falls to you, my Lady." The normally composed Brackern appeared tired, tail drooping, eyes downcast, claws placed on the floor of his home.
