Airakou grazes her lips with her finger just lightly before answering. "So." The woman exhales slightly. "Your gimmick is of the observer. The one who looks to strike a deal. I bet that purposefully jarring hat was not put on your head for nothing, right? It must have a purpose." The man pretty much pinned the surface of the demonkin girl, so she gives off a little smirk. "You are right about one thing the most: I do not like being coddled around. The one thing I cannot stand in this world are those who seek and crave direction and a hand to hold. Not because of their fixation on a linear path for their choosing, but their annoying dependence for the matter." It makes them vulnerable. It closes their potential to do great things. How frustrating. "But I will direct attention to where it needs to be. I never intended to join a clan when I left home-- for that matter I am fleeing from one. However, being on my own has presented some issues. A balance must be maintained. Without a clan I do not have opponents to face nor a platform to add on to my grand goal of surpassing my limitations. I could go on foolishly out loose in the wild just slaughtering things on my own, but for such little satisfaction. It is senseless unless I am working towards something other than tedious grinding. This is why I ask: May I join your clan?" Airakou closes her eyes. "I do not stray, nor abandon those who gain my trust. But...this is obvious as my strong personality itself: I do hold a high standard. Perhaps I can help give form to your organization in an organized and proper way."
