Birds were a foreign thing to Rand. Sharp-eyed and shrill, the familiars of those of the clan Menel. Many he simply paid no mind to; mindless, thoughtless creatures, lesser than he, exerting their dominion over a realm that was far above the watery depths of his Mistress.

He was no stranger to the concept of avians heeding to a luperci master. Many Menel-born had their eagle and owl companions. But a common crow, gurgling its low string of incomprehensible blabber, seemed a questionable choice.

With mute interest, the Priest watched as the dark wildling sent her feathered companion on his way, much to the corvid's chagrin; but Rand's tall ears told him that the creature lay just nearby, no doubt watching, waiting, murmuring under his breath.

His eyebrows cinched at her blasé greeting — but he smiled anyway, his teeth yellow and sharp as he regarded her with something akin to a fondness.

"Woodsmoke," he addressed her, reaching out with a hand in the vast chasm that stretched between them, one that he no doubt expected to her to fill at his beck and call.

"You're not likely to eavesdrop much at all out of me, I'm afraid. The ones worth listening to are still in the City Square."
