This man, this mystery of a man, was clearly capable of a great deal many things. Keith had seen enough to know this to be true. That said, he'd also seen enough to sincerely doubt that straightforward answers were not among that which he was capable of, for he refused to give a simple, straight answer, instead stating that leaving the cave was impossible except by one's own merit, and therefore, part of Keith was lost there. Keith and Meowth exchanged bewildered looks at this, before the man touched Keith's shoulder. Keith shuddered- his hand was frigid to the touch. The man continued towards the cave, speculating that Keith might find this lost part of him once he helped Yohan. Or maybe it was that Yohan required Keith to find this part of himself in order to save him. Keith's head was spinning at this point, but it was the man's final words that got the gears turning. "Why was- sent to find- you mean-"Missingno. Master - Promptly calling out the man for his new, strange appearance and the dark fog that had just transported you back to the entrance to the Cave, yourself and Meowth make your displeasure towards his cryptic ways known and known well. But the man doesn't even bother to grace you with turning his face back towards you, instead opting to stare directly towards the cave entrance. That is, until you get directly into his face, attempting to get a better look under his hood, where you are met with a piercing gaze of bright red eyes, his smile widening as he seems to look straight through you.
"Why, have you not yet realized what has become of you? What more is to come for you to leave?" The man slowly raises one arm, a bony finger cloaked in a dark purple glove pointing towards the cave. "You cannot leave this cave aside from your own merit, and as such part of yourself has been lost here."
The further dodging of your question is made only more obvious as he simply places his hand on your opposite shoulder to Meowth, a cold chill running through the area he touches before he simply begins to walk past and into the cave. "Perhaps you'll find it once you help this boy, or perhaps the boy requires that you find it to save him." Removing his hand from your shoulder he presses on, "It is quite the conundrum. But then, why ever were you sent to find me if you could do this all on your own?"
"Dis guy's da mage?!" Meowth exclaimed.
"I mean, he's clearly got powers of some sort, so in hindsight, kinda makes sense," Keith shrugged. "But if I could do this all on my... why... sent to find..." Keith's eyes gradually widened, his mouth falling open as it dawned on him. "...oh, that piece of shit,," Keith hissed.
"Wat?" Meowth asked.
"Dusknoir!" Keith exclaimed. "Meowth, that was no accident that he let slip about the mage- he played us like fiddles! Sent us on this wild-Zangoose chase to waste our time and leave him free to drain Yohan- oh, geez, Yohan," he murmured, turning back to the cave. "We gotta get back in there, Meowth!" he exclaimed. "We've already wasted so much time! I just hope we're not too late," he groaned as he took off running after the mage.
