Almost as soon as the portkey - an old, fraying length of rope - sets the pair down, Tristan is moving. This isn't a type of mission that's new to either of them, after all; it's obvious to everyone that missions involving snakes should involve Tristan, and he often ends up dragging Jocelyn along (because Morgan is afraid of snakes, obviously. What other reason?). Today they find themselves at the gaping entrance to a cave, which Tristan regards for a moment before turning to Jocelyn. "Shall we?" he asks, raising his brows. A natural habitat is hardly a challenge for either of them, after all. Should be simple.

Should be simple, she thinks too. After arriving, she turns to survey the edges of the cave and spots no one nearby, withdrawing her wand. "Are you familiar with occamies?" she inquires after nodding at him and heading into the cave's mouth. When it goes cold and dark, she illuminates her wand with a small swirl. "As in, you have firsthand experience with them." It wouldn't surprise her if he had. Up until they met, he had lived a far more interesting life than she did.

"A few times, yeah," Tristan says as they walk, keeping his wand out but not illuminating it. This way if anything attacks them they don't lose time cancelling two spells, and he can cover her until she manages. He does cast serpensortia, though, summoning a Chinese cobra that slithers further ahead of them at his word. "Last time I was in China, after the Jordan mission, I went to visit some, and then Professor ibn-Yasmine introduced me to a few, too. They're reasonable - aggressive when they think they need to defend their eggs, but who isn't? I've never met one who cares about the shells after they've hatched, so really all we have to do is go in, have a chat, and leave."

Jocelyn glances down at the cobra that appears in front of them. At this point, she is used to various snakes appearing at random. It's a bit funny to think her fathers used to scream and sweep her off of her feet the moment a snake slithered out of the brush and now here she is trusting those little (sometimes not so little) creatures. Speaking of parents, the comment about occamies defending the eggs because who doesn't obviously sticks with her. For now, she pushes it from her mind as best as she can. It's a mental hurdle for another time. This mission isn't dangerous. "Perfect," she responds simply, not wanting to be too loud and talkative especially as they turn a bend in the cave.

It's a few minutes of walking in relative silence before the cobra appears in front of them again, hissing loudly at Tristan. He listens interestedly, then translates in a hushed tone for Jocelyn's benefit. "Apparently there's a lot more than just the occamy here, but almost entirely just non-magical snakes. So I don't think we need to worry about that. What's more interesting is that those snakes have been talking about other humans passing through, about an hour ago. He doesn't know if they've left already. We'll have to be on guard."

Something in her stirs at the thought of running into others. "Hopefully they're long gone by now," she murmurs quietly also silently hoping that they were also on the hunt for eggshells and nothing more. Jocelyn can't stomach the thought of anything else, stealing occamy eggs or worse. She imagines the sale value must be ridiculously high on those things. Well worth it if you have lower morals than her. "If not, then oh well." She stands guard, but isn't too frightened- cautious without the anxiety. Her stance becomes a bit more protective as they move forward in silence for several minutes, slowly lowering down to sea level until they run into a large pit. Instinctively, she reaches out a hand to stop him.

He stops abruptly when she lifts her hand, craning to peer down into the pit, and then he lets out a single surprised (and delighted) laugh. "It's a snake pit," he says, judging the depth and deciding it seems survivable. Three to five feet deep, at most. A few sentences in parseltongue is enough to have said snakes making space for them to jump down, which he does almost immediately, turning around to offer to lift her down. It's up to her if she takes him up on it or not, but he'd really prefer she did. "These can kill you," he tells her, remarkably calm about the whole thing. "But they shouldn't be in our way anyway. Take care not to step on any, though."

Jocelyn doesn't hesitate, using her free hand to grab onto one of his and jumping down. "As if I would dare," she comments, immediately clinging to him to avoid stepping on them. The thought that they could kill her- that one of them could decide not to trust him or that they don't take to them very well and just bite and kill her- is naturally terrifying, but she trusts him and besides they always have phoenix tears on them. I wonder if the others were Parselmouths, she thinks, transferring the thought to him as she becomes more conscious of the fact that there are others about. Otherwise, I don't think they would have made it past this point. It's possible, but unlikely. Jocelyn tilts her head for a moment to glance up at him, trying to read his expression before turning to watch their surroundings again.

Tristan's free hand snakes around her waist when she clings to him, vaguely amused that she feels the need to but not complaining. He supposes it is his fault, for his phrasing, but he really is certain they're not going to decide to bite them; it's clear the pair of them are not a threat. At least to him it is. If they were we've got a problem, he thinks back to her, though he's not so certain that they would have a parselmouth. They're kind of rare, after all. Or maybe not. Who knows, maybe they're friendly? The undertone of wariness is clear, though. Should I ask the snakes? They might lie, though.

Naturally, she feels more comforted once his arm is draped around her and she smiles just slightly for a moment before her expression becomes more focused again. She doesn't understand why any of the snakes would want to lie to him, but then again, there are probably snakes with trust issues, right? I think you should try. Even if they would lie, why would they all choose to do that? Certainly one of them would choose to trust you over whoever the other ones are. I think it will be fine, she tells him, sounding rather sure of herself for someone who has no experience talking to snakes. That isn't entirely true. Jocelyn knows how to say three words to Nehebkau and that is it.

Tristan shrugs, crouching to pick up one of the snakes, a large female that regards him interestedly. A short conversation makes him frown, draping her over his shoulders instead of replacing her in the pit, and then he's abruptly moving again, translating for Jocelyn in his head. There is another parselmouth, he thinks, somehow managing to sound irritated about it even in his head. But she says he's rude. He tips his head towards the snake, listening to whatever she's saying. One of them stepped on her friend's eggs - Chinese pit vipers are very defensive of their eggs, like occamies I guess - and when she bit him he cursed her. So get ready for a fight. Even if they could have avoided the other group, which Tristan honestly thinks is unlikely, he's still decided he's going to hunt this man down and curse him.

Jocelyn parts from him when he leans down, moving ahead of him slightly and holding her wand lower to the ground to better illuminate the floor. Her eyebrows knit together and she stops, surveying the pit before turning towards him. A look of hurt anger flashes across her face- only hurt for the simple fact she's become rather sensitive to sadness nowadays especially when it pertains to certain subjects like these. Eso es jodidamente terrible. Mataré a ese hombre. Her tone is rather aggressive and her immediate reaction is filled with too much upset to translate. She knows she's preaching to the choir, however, so she swiftly resumes their pace down through the pit. That's horrible, she adds after a second just as they reach the other side.

It's lucky Tristan's been practising, then, isn't it? Not if I get him first, he thinks darkly, keeping an eye out for said cursed snake as he follows her. There's no sign, at least at a glance; he supposes he can look more carefully on the way back, after they've dealt with this other group and made sure the Occamy is okay. He doesn't put the pit viper down, though, letting her coil around his upper arm and shoulder as he reaches Jocelyn. Do you want a leg up? he asks, because the pit is nearly as deep as she is tall. Merlin, she's short.

Obviously she would prefer to not have to murder someone and she knows he would probably gain some satisfaction from doing it on his own, but she's gotten a bit more protective lately too and she would also rather not get extra blood on their hands. This mission was supposed to be easy. Please, she answers although with visible reluctance. She's certain she could lift herself over if she tried, but it would be a struggle and then what if the others came across her right then? She wouldn't have enough time to grab at her wand. She lets him lift her over, brushing herself off and holding out a hand just in case he needed it. As if it would do much. I heard that. I'm not that short. She challenges.

Tristan doesn't have such qualms; I mean, when does he ever? Extra blood happens, sometimes. He rolls her eyes at her assertion that she's not that short, giving her a pointed look as he kneels to let her step on his hands. You're nearly a foot shorter than me, he points out, climbing up after her once she's up and making a point to grasp her hand as he does so. It's called equality in a relationship. I think the cavern with the occamy should be fairly close by now. Can you hear anything? As a legilimens, I mean.

Jocelyn rolls her eyes. And? Has it ever occurred to you that you're just ridiculously tall? Her hand grabs at a section of his upper arm, absentmindedly feeling for a snake before hitting it lightly with the back of her hand. When she finally starts hearing other voices, however, she gets a bit more serious. A couple of voices, but they're quiet. At least two, but some could be further along or could be more proficient occlumens. It's a bit difficult when his thoughts are so close by and so incredibly loud, but she won't tell him to stop. Not only does she know he isn't a stellar occlumens, but it's the only way they're communicating at the moment. It doesn't seem to matter much though as an orange light starts to become more visible from where they are headed, causing her to cast a silent Nox. When the words start to become more clear, her heart gets heavy.

Morgan's taller, Tristan thinks back immediately, making a face when she hits his arm. Uncalled for. At least two is what he expected, but he's inclined to think there are more than that, just from what the snake wrapped around his arm is hissing in his ear. Can you make out any useful information? he asks, curious. He's not stupid enough to just run forward and throw himself into the fray, as much as he might want to. Instead, he lowers the pit viper to the ground and lets her slither silently ahead, to report back after she scouts the cavern ahead.

I'm sorry, she thinks in response, but she's more focused on other things. Jocelyn stops and holds a hand out to stop him too. I think they're right around here, she gestures around the curve of the cave and turns up to him. It's difficult to see much of his face, so she doubts he can see the concern on hers, but then again, she's lower to the ground and closer to the light source. I think they're taking the eggs and they- I think they killed her. It isn't necessary to mention that it seems as if it's a pretty light-hearted subject in their minds. It's especially not necessary because there's an eruption of laughter causing her to instantly reach for his arm.

It's only the return of the pit viper that stops Tristan from walking right in there and throwing around the killing curse, but his anger is palpable as he bends to pick her up again and listens. There are four, he tells her mentally. They're trying to get the eggs down from the nest, but she says only two have hatched and the other six are still in the eggs. You're right that the occamy is dead. Any strategy ideas before I go avada kedavra the lot of them?

No Unforgivables, she warns him before her hand falls from around his arm down towards the pocket of her robes. It has long since had an extension charm on it considering it's more practical than carrying around a purse or wallet. We have other curses and these, she points out as she withdraws a medieval sword. What if we start with Incarcerous, then disarm them? We should each be able to perform two nonverbally before they are able to react. We place shield charms immediately in case it doesn't go well. Only use an Unforgivable if they do first. Considering a shield charm won't protect them from those, it only seems fair that they use them if they do. No matter how much planning they attempt to do now, however, things will certainly not go this way.

Tristan doesn't argue; he'd be inclined to use unforgivables, of course, but he's more than capable of other methods too and it's ultimately not much of a handicap. He nods in agreement, pulling out his own sword and rolling his shoulders to loosen the muscles before they enter. I'll cast the incarcerous spells if you handle the disarming, he thinks at her, levelling his wand in his off hand and moving closer to the entrance to the cavern, as close to the wall as he can manage. The snake continues on in the opposite direction, presumably back to her pit. He doesn't really want to risk her here, and she's small enough she wouldn't be any help anyway. He wonders if Eithne would fit in a magically-extended bag. An invisibility cloak would be good about now.

Jocelyn nods, twisting her wand over in her hand until she has a more comfortable grip on it. There has never been a greater time to be ambidextrous. If we cast Cave inimicum, we won't be able to hear each other, but we won't be seen, she points out, glancing up at him before leveling her eyes and following his movements along the cave wall. As the other people's voices get louder and their thoughts start blaring through her mind, she clutches her wand and sword a little tighter. It has been a long time since she has been able to read thoughts so clearly and the accents easily give them away. Fucking Americans. Ready whenever.

Tristan considers that for a few moments, then shrugs. They've been on enough missions to know each other's tactics inside out, and he's got enough faith in Jocelyn's ability to handle herself even if he can't hear or see when she's in trouble that it seems like a good idea. "Cave inimicum," he murmurs, rapping his wand on his temple and edging towards the corner while he waits for her to do the same. Two of the men seem to be close to the occamy, a bloody mess on the floor - Merlin, what did they do to her? Tristan's blood is rapidly approaching a boil, but if he learned anything in Jordan it was that it's important to keep at least a relatively level head on missions. The other two seem to have been assigned to watch the perimeter, one on each side of the cave. He waits a beat, deciding it's more important to protect the eggs than take out the outliers, and casts incarcerous at the two in the centre first.

Cave inimicum, she casts silently after she watches him disappear. It's a bit more difficult navigating now that she doesn't know when he is going to act, but she moves out around the corner of the cave and furrows her brows. The moment two ropes shoot around the men standing near the occamy, she casts two appropriately powered disarming charms at both of them. When they clamber to the ground and their wands fly against the cave walls, the two on guard puff out their chests. They immediately begin shouting and sending Surgito at the entrance of the cave where they stand, causing her to slash her wand in the air and shout "Protego!" It's an instinct to shout when she knows she won't be heard, but that's what that damn concealment charm was for.

Tristan has a split second to make a decision, but doesn't cast protego. He doesn't need the concealment charm now that their presence is announced, and it'll let them do more damage if they don't know Jocelyn is there. That and they'll be less likely to use large-area attacks. All in all seems like a good trade. He takes the time he would have wasted shielding to fire off a sectumsempra at the closest attacker, barely waiting to see if it hits before he's already twisting on his heel to apparate towards the other one. It's best to stay out of the way of wherever Jocelyn ends up, after all, so stray spellfire doesn't hit her.

Jocelyn doesn't have time to be overly worried about him dancing around in plain sight. To her knowledge, she's still protected and it appears at least one of the others is finished. As he bleeds out and writhes on the ground, she turns around to face the others and notices one of the men who had previously been tied has managed to get free and summon his wand to him. He must be the ring leader considering he has to be the occlumens. No thoughts come from him or perhaps he's just stupid. "Depulso," she casts at him, sending him soaring against the cave wall and falling down on top of the maimed occamy. He stumbles onto his feet just as she tries to cast an arrow shooting spell straight for the heart. He's a bit too far away to just stab him or else she would.

Appearing beside the other opponent with a crack, Tristan is caught off guard by a cutting curse and barely ducks it, receiving a gash across the cheek for his trouble. It's far from the worst he could have gotten, though, and it pays off when it gives the man enough time to summon a snake and hiss at it - so this is the parselmouth, then? It's probably a mistake when Tristan takes the time to cast a shield charm around said snake, hissing at it to stay still and ignore his opponent (he doubts it'll work given the nature of the spell making the snake friendlier to the caster, but that's why the shield charm won't let the snake out of its little bubble, either). Actually, no, it's definitely a mistake, which he discovers when he turns his attention back to the other parselmouth and finds himself staring down a green-glowing wand tip.

Since she has her own to handle, she has only been paying short glances at Tristan. When she hears the forbidden words, she whips around, interrupting her attempt at the disintegration curse on her own attacker just in case the arrow doesn't do enough (which it doesn't as he leaps off of the serpent's body and avoids it altogether). There's nothing she can really do because the shield charm won't do anything against it and she won't make it over in time. There's no use shouting because he won't hear. She feels useless. The distractions allows plenty of time for the previous attacker to climb down from the serpent and cross the cave and before she knows it the other man is casting a Surgito right at her.

There isn't enough time to summon something solid to block the curse, but there is enough time to duck, and Tristan's lucky enough that the curse misses his head by a hairsbreadth. His answering knee-reversal hex hits (well, it was cast point-blank) and he has enough presence of mind to stun the other parselmouth rather than kill him. Who knows, they might get some useful information out of him. There's also the fact that he's never met another parselmouth before, even an enemy, and he wants to interrogate him. An incarcerous further incapacitates the man, and he glances up in time to see Jocelyn pop into view again. She's capable, though, so he takes a moment to dismiss his shield charm and banish the snake back to wherever it was summoned from before he goes to see if she needs help.

The green light hits the cave wall and an incredibly small weight lifts from her chest. It doesn't last long as the man lunges at her, which means she can conclude he probably isn't the occlumens. He's just stupid considering it takes only her lifting her sword and sending it towards his stomach to stop him from getting any nearer. When he's fallen to his knees, she sighs and wipes the small beads of sweat from her forehead, glancing between the last remaining men. Jocelyn stares at her husband for a moment before crossing over towards the eggs, sending a bundle of sparks at the man left still breathing beside them. She tunes out the profanity that follows. "Who do you work for?" He doesn't appear to be much of a threat tied up and besides she would rather know which organization thought doing this was a good idea over just murdering them all.

Deciding to let Jocelyn handle the interrogation unless she calls him over, Tristan stops just long enough beside the occamy to check that she really is dead before hurrying on to the nest. There's a hatchling there, among the eggs and shells, and he starts to hiss reassurances to it as he scoops it up, cradling it to his chest and placing its unhatched siblings into his only non-expanded robe pocket with copious cushioning charms. He doesn't want to risk them breaking. "Where's your other sibling?" he asks the hatchling, collecting the pieces of shell with less care than he afforded the whole eggs. That's definitely enough shell for two eggs.

When he tells her, a humored smile comes before her face. He's lying. His thoughts prove so and she isn't afraid to point it out. "Isn't it Pura Motza? What sort of bullshit is that?" Are they just a lot of teenagers or something? No, they're all on the older side. Maybe they were teenagers when they banded together. The humor would follow through with the early twenties, she supposes. A few more questions later and she becomes content, crossing over to where Tristan is and taking a better glance of the space around them. She lets the man live, so she can continue to hear his thoughts spiral about how he's ratted them out, unconsciously revealing more the longer he sat there to overthink. How do things appear over here? she asks him, turning to stare up at him.

I'm taking the unhatched eggs back, Tristan tells her, surveying the room with a frown. Where is the other hatchling? It shouldn't have been able to get far. They won't survive without a mother. But there should be another hatchling, I just don't know where it's gone. He still smiles down at her, though. Did I hear you say Pura Motza? What the fuck kind of name is that?

Jocelyn begins searching for the other hatchling, not batting an eye at the thought of bringing the others with them. After discovering they had murdered the occamy, she had very quickly come to the conclusion that- should there be any left living- they would become parents to a bunch of occamies. Her becoming a mother off of the merit of marriage alone. She knows they're more his companions than hers and she's fine with that. So, she simply nods and begins hissing a sweet Come that she uses with Nehebkau when he wanders off too far. Hopefully it's still alive. The kind a bunch of stupid American teenagers pull out of their asses, she answers pointedly. Their base is in Harlem under a Muggle laundromat. This man won't stop worrying about us finding it. Pinche imbécil. Jocelyn rolls her eyes before glancing back at him with a small smile.

The parselmouth's still alive, Tristan tells her, ducking to check behind a rock a small way away. I thought it might be interesting to interrogate him, but we should take him back to the Citadel first. I don't want him getting away. The hatchling in his arms is hissing incessantly, and whatever it's saying causes him to frown, turning to face the dead occamy again. She says her sibling is over here. As for the base... up for another unofficial mission? Maybe they should take some others, too, though if the calibre of these men is anything to go by it won't be a hard one. Though Elayne might like to get more practice in... Do you know the exact location?

We should wait before doing anything hasty. We can get the occamies acclimated to their new environment and interrogate this idiot and take a moment to just breathe for once. Jocelyn isn't upset that he wants to raid their base, but she isn't sure she can handle the stress. Even second guessing it is annoying her as she immediately decides she can handle it. Why not? One second. She stands, walking towards the man from before and kneeling in front of him. "Where is it?" She smiles and the man smiles at her too, but in the way middle-aged men tend to ogle after twenty-somethings. "Where's the laundromat?" she repeats, watching the smile slip from his face and his mind starts to reel. Once the thought is at the forefront of his mind, it's a lot easier to view. For a moment, she's transported into his mind and the memory of him standing outside of a laundromat in Manhattan comes to view, turning down to see an advert for it in his hand. Jocelyn pulls out of his memories with a heavy sigh as she brings herself to stand again. I do now. Easy shit. She lifts her eyebrows and grins for a moment, but she's visibly a bit exhausted.

Tristan grins back at her, easily impressed as ever, before using his wand to gently roll the occamy's body over. A-ha. The second hatchling is looking a little worse for wear, but it's nothing permanent, and he can look it over when they get back to the citadel. Maybe after you rest, he adds, looking her up and down critically. I doubt they'll move within a couple days. They probably won't even notice this group is dead until Monday, if they're based in the US.

Jocelyn immediately extends her free hand out for the other occamy, finding the immediate urge to nurture it as soon as she sees it. If they're all of this nature, then yeah, I doubt they'll be mindful enough to be suspicious. She's learned not to be too combative both with herself and with him, so she doesn't protest especially considering she was the one who suggested it in the first place. Growth, apparently. She probably would have a few months ago. We don't need them both, so might as well get on with it, she thinks before turning and flicking her wand, conjuring a bunch of arrows that soon sink into the crook's chest. Are you sure you want the other one in the Citadel?

Tristan offers her the hatchling as soon as she extends her hand to it, the first one having climbed up his shirt to wrap itself around his upper arm. He cracks a smile at her comment about the man's intelligence, barely batting an eyelid at the arrows she conjures because he's too busy catching her hand in his and pressing a brief kiss to it. Yeah, the dungeons are secure enough, he thinks back, straightening again and turning away from the occamy. The other parselmouth is still out for the count, but he makes a point of snapping the man's wand and checking his ropes before he gives Jocelyn a thumbs up. We can kill him after, and I'll bring Eithne in to the interrogation room, too. He's confident in the basilisk's loyalty to him, if not to the Parade itself, and there's no chance she'll turn on him because of some second-rate parselmouth. It'll definitely give the man a scare, too.

The occamy finds its way underneath the sleeve of her robes just in time for when he reaches to kiss her hand, causing her to smile sweetly at him for a moment before reality settles in again. Do you want me in there with you? I don't think you need me, but if you want someone to read memories or detect lies, then you know. He can always grab Iseult unless she's off somewhere random again, but she prefers the thought of being asked to do it instead. Then again, she is a bit worn, but he doesn't have to know that.

I think I'll be alright, he thinks back, mostly because she is looking a little worn out. Though if anyone has the right to, it's her; sure they're a team but he's not stupid enough to think she isn't carrying the biggest burden recently. Literally carrying. Unless you really want to. I doubt that we'll get much more out of him than you already got from that one.

Jocelyn questions it for a moment, knowing she will be torn with whichever decision she comes to. After a moment, she nods. Okay, it's fine then. I don't have to, but I will wait for you in the Citadel before going home. Usually she wouldn't mind leaving without him, but something about watching this new Parselmouth almost kill him has her more wary. Although she knows he can handle it, she would much rather wait it out in her quarters at the Citadel than in their cottage on the other side of the country. Ready?
