Condition: Sipping his drink
Huang drinks his water during the trip and responds to Carlos' second question first, "I always expect to run into trouble, which is why I am always armed. I have been able to ascertain the combat abilities of the other members of the group, but yours are still unknown to me. In a combat, will you be an active combatant or a supporting member? I was brought up fighting in all kinds of situations and against all manner of opponents, in vast numbers or solo combat, so my question is simply, 'am I going to have to protect you, or will you have my back?' Either answer is fine, as I know other skill sets are equally as important as combat.
After giving Carlos a chance to boast of his own combat experience Huang responds to the first question, "I believe our next target from the lymric is the "Robe of mystic night". We have little to go on except the greatest potential location is Witchend, north of London. In keeping with our keeping a low profile, I suggest we go there as a wealthy traveling couple and their manservant/bodyguard. Yourself and Ms. Jenny will play the part of the couple while I would play the role of your manservant. I think this may be best because I have... issues... with lying. To be frank, I am horrible at it. I can convince Eskimos to buy refrigerators in the winter on a good day, but outright lying just makes me terribly uncomfortable and it is very obvious I am lying. This would also allow me to largely go unnoticed and I can sneak around as needed to investigate clues. I am quite good at hiding in full view.
" Huang adds this last bit with a smirk, as if remembering a number of occasions.
Huang takes a moment and then adds, "Just as an idea, perhaps you two, as a couple, had heard of legends of a mystic cloak of invisibility, like the one in the Harry Potter novels, and are in the area looking up on it and catching the sights while you are at it. That might be plausible enough for people to believe, isn't very suspicious if you seem more curious than cautious, and would disguise our searching for something which might very well be exactly what we say we are looking for. According to Holmes' information that area is very well-kept, and, coupled with the name, leads me to believe there are probably strong magical forces at work there. As such, we will need to be careful for the unexpected.
Huang finishes his drink before adding in, "Damn good water. Perrier?
