The Serpent in the Fort
Madena was splayed out on a wall near the docks, staring blankly at a n old man as he shouted at her in a foreign language. Normally she would be freaking out or threatening the man if not turning him to stone, but ever since she got off that ship and felt this sun she couldn't get enough of it. She used her backpack as a pillow and made sure her hood was up to conceal her 'hair' but pretty much everything else was visible and already some people were staring at she scaly woman. Not that she cared, this sun was simply too fantastic to have her worry about anything.
After lying there for an hour the man gave up and walked away. She figured he gave up and she laid her head back down to bake further in the sun like a lazy lizard. However her nap was rudely interrupted once more when she heard the old man return...and this time with company...
6 soldiers, most likely city watch, followed him. He pointed at her while shouting something and the soldier s approached with their hands on their oddly curved swords. It was the first time she had seen swords like that. She wanted to ask about the swords, but quickly her instincts kicked in and told her that she needed to get out of here.
They reached her just as she got up and strapped her backpack to her back. Two of them grabbed her by her shoulders and started to push her to one side. They were simply removing what seemed to be a beggar or working girl on public docks and moving her out of the area, but to her it was as if they were leading her away to be executed. She fought back and struggled in their grip, screaming at them to let her got but they didn't seem to understand her...or they chose not to in her mind.
Doing what she only thought was right her legs morphed into a large snake tail and with one powerful swing all 6 soldiers flew through the air into a couple of fish traps nearby. She gave a violent hiss before bolting down the road. She didn't know where she was, but she found herself in an alley. She morphed her legs back and looked around, trying to figure out where to go...
