Enigmatic Professor: The Absol looked directly into your eyes for a moment, the illustrious darkness comforting in a strange, ephemeral way. After this brief pause though, the Disaster Pokemon leaps from the bluff, indicating for you to follow once more. Moving through the snowy woods silently, creeping forwards with a ghostly determination, it strikes you as somewhat odd that this Pokemon would be willing to assault the encampment with you. Still, were it leading you into a trap, it surely would have been sprung by now - it was a far sight less dangerous for the bandits to have some prior warning as opposed to you showing up to attack them at their most vulnerable.
Finally, you draw closer to the camp, close enough to hear the sounds of the men. They were laughing boisterously, celebrating their sizeable haul. More importantly, you catch a piece of dialogue from the largest of the man, who stood just next to a fearsome looking Sceptile.
"Still unsure how we managed to pull of kidnapping the Jarl's weedling grandson. 't'll no doubt fetch a handsome ransom."
The convenient morsel of information resolved the uncertainty you felt from the Jarl. While Scandia warriors prided battlefield acumen above all else in their ruling member, having lost flesh and blood to common bandits would inevitably be a political disaster for the current Jarl. Having an outsider handle the business without much fuss was a shrewd move.
However, to that end you had to succeed in defeating these bandits. Luckily for you, you were downwind from the camp, and Absol seemed awfully focused on the boy in the cage, leaving you to deal with the Sceptile.
.After hearing the snippet of information that the Jarls Grandson was the one in the cage quelled Drakes's thoughts about the mission. The Jarl might be many things but family matters weren't something he could step into and change without changing or possibly altering the future. Time was starting to be a hated thing for Drake along with things messing with Space considering his past.
Drake shook his head and then started to hatch a plan for taking the Jarl's grandson back. He noticed that the Absol seemed focused on this kid, and Drake couldn't be sure if this was a tame or wild Absol because both have been noted to follow and partner up with those that are a pivotal point in some upcoming disaster. Well at least back in his homeworld this held true, but here could be different.
His enemy to take on was seemingly just the big man and what he assumed was his sceptile. If he were to pitch just Wolfe into this match he would probably be able to make this a clean sweep and takedown before everyone could scatter and escape. True it was that his main objective or focus was to bring this kid back safe and sound but he also wanted to make sure these bandits were captured and brought in. He had Wolfe mentally relay the message to Lelo and Fenrir that they were to assist the Absol with freeing the child, but once the child was out of the cage they were to Aid him and Wolfe in taking down the rest of the bandits.
This was probably Drake's best chance to strike, so with that he had Wolfe and his partners charge forward, Wolfe Howling to distract the bandit's attention away from the cage and on himself and his trainer
