Her gaze dropped, falling to the sand under them for a moment. Yes, it was. There was too much. And what was truly unfortunate, was there was very little they could find easily. If they couldn't find it, it was much harder to fix it. There was no sense in being too worried about it, though. It wasn't as if it'd solve anything, and maybe that which they couldn't find, the aura-burst could.
"Nydema," Kasaya answered. "All three are currently in Nydema. Only Kassandros is aware he is a Guardian." Kohaku and Kassidy were not aware of that, just yet. Kohaku didn't even do magic yet, but that was for the best. It was too dangerous, before, for him to be able to use magic. He'd have been executed on the spot for his powers, and his god-parent, Xitos, had sealed his powers to prevent that from happening. His sister's seal had broken. It was long time for Kohaku's to.
And Kassidy, she had all kinds of problems. "... Kassidy does not know that name, either. She is called Livia, now, but she and Kassandros are close friends. Find Kassandros, and you'll find the other two. It has waited this long, though. I suppose it could wait a little longer, while you handle things here." And, it would be going a little bit quicker, now that Kemosiri's fleet was here to help, and Kasaya would help where she could, too. At present, it wasn't like she had anything better to be doing, and she wanted to help Katsuya become able to leave sooner.
The quicker the Guardians were together, the better, perhaps.
Nydema. Well that gave him something to work with. Three people in Nydema. Well at least it was a coastal city, he had some chance in managing to reach it. There were some reasons why they didn't typically go down that far, but this was important and Katsuya was.... well. He wasn't happy about it, but he could recognize that this was more important than being happy about the situation.
Only one of the three knew anything about what was going on. Well that was.... well. It was possible they'd come into their powers in different ways or at different times. Depending on what was going on, exactly, he supposed maybe they really hadn't noticed the sheer amount of aura that they had, or the strength of their magic compared to others. After all... Nydema was in Dalmasca and Dalmasca wasn't exactly known for liking mages.
.... Oh for the love of the gods, Nydema was in Dalmasca and he was going to have to spend his entire time there dodging slavers, probably. That added a layer of complication to things. Just, not saying that. He'd figure it out.
It was probably better not to say that. Okay, right, force on finding Kassandros and the others would follow. Well wasn't that convenient? Well. That was probably not quite accurate but it was close enough to what he meant.
Katsuya nodded a little. "Will be good to get this taken care of first." He agreed mildly. Though Katsuya didn't like the idea of leaving his family - the fleet - here exactly. On the other hand, bringing Selverya and his son into Dalmasca was certainly its own risk so the ilim guardian couldn't really win here. "We're making good progress." Just, there had been an awful lot of damage and it was making clean up take some time.
"Yes," Kasaya answered. "Somewhat slow, but that is to be expected, with this much to deal with." Ah, but things should be speeding up, a bit, now that Kemosiri had arrived, and she fully intended to do what she could. Perhaps not for very long, but her assistance would probably make quite a bit of headway. Surely, it'd make some more progress.
Most likely, he also needed time to think this over. It was either drag his family into Dalmasca, and Dalmasca was pleasant to no one (though, Kasaya suspected Kassandros would quite readily step in to protect them), or leaving them here, and either one was a very unpleasant prospect. Kasaya could appreciate the difficulty of this particular decision.
"If it's any consolation," she started, "if you wait long enough, I believe they will be leaving Dalmasca, and heading to Saqqara. I am not sure if Livia is leaving, as well." But it was Kassandros' idea, and honestly, Kohaku had nowhere else to go. In any case, there was time to consider it. "In the meantime, if you could point out those underwater complexities..." Then, she'd get to work on them, and he could think in peace, or something like that.
[I think this one can be wrapped up next post.]
Well, they were doing the best they could. But yes, he supposed it was a little slow thanks to the fact that there was so much to deal with and the fact that their numbers had been drastically reduced by the damage. .... Kemosiri's presence had been a great help, and with her help that would do even more he was sure. It was....well. Hopefully it would be enough.
And it would give him time to decide the best way of managing what she wanted of him anyway. And time to process a few of the more surprising details that she'd left him with. The gods were dying, the four guardians were decended from the gods... those were still details he would need to sort out. Never mind a trip to Dalmasca was frought with its own issues - even if it was important.
"Sort of, but from the sounds of it it would be better not to wait that long." Just going by what the oracle had said before but you know. That was something to work with. Never mind they would still be divided if the aforementioned Livia didn't go to Saqqara with the other two.
"Right, I can do that." Katsuya motioned slightly for her to follow him as he began to move off towards the water's edge. It would be easier to poitn them out when he could see the water better, after all.
