    RP - Interview of Roland Cassidy for the Legion

    Post by Lunarisse Aspenstar on Sun Jun 05, 2016 9:51 am

    Care Marlinea - Part One

    [ 2016.06.05 17:09:13 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote pads in quietly. She's dressed, as is her habit and custom, in black from head to toe, with a long dagger tucked through the black satin sash wound around her middle*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:14:08 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote on the other hand was in a semi-casual ensemble of digital camo inspired colorful reds, purples, from blouse through to slacks.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:17:00 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote steps into the Cafe, the last time he'd been here well... it seems like a different era altogether. The imposing looking mercenary looks haggard, his hair grown long and a goatee (similar to http://i.imgur.com/JdzVUHk.png ) -
    [ 2016.06.05 17:18:56 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote sipped her coffee slowly, and kept an eye on the new arrivals into the cafe.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:19:03 ] Roland Cassidy > Swapping the Haori upon his departure of New Caldari Prime, he opts instead to sport his Red and Black attire that seems only more menacing in conjunction with the pair of cybernetic arms this clone has.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:22:06 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote , in person, is small and slight-- no more than 4'10", with birdlike fragility. If she finds the mercenary intimidating, however, she's doing a good job of not showing it very much. She bows, politely, in the Amarrian fashion*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:22:37 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote from her table turned her attention to Mr. Cassidy and offered him a smile,
    [ 2016.06.05 17:23:03 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote pauses to look to Aria, recognizing her from other events and their conversation last evening. "Ms. Jenneth." He returns the bow in the Na Paani way, with a clenched fist and an open palm.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:25:09 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Ave, Mr. Cassidy. *she smiles slightly* This is Varcutii Renalard. Thank you for ... coming to speak with us.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:26:13 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote kept to a cheery, genial, if polite manner and bearing > It's good to meet you Mr. Cassidy.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:26:33 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote makes his way to Varcutii's table. "Ms Renalard." He preforms the gesture once more to show respect not rising to meet her gaze until introducing himself. "I am Commander Cassidy. Lady Aspenstar has requested I speak with you. May I join you?"
    [ 2016.06.05 17:26:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Please do, sir.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:27:03 ] Varcutii Renalard > Certainly, do feel free to make yourself comfortble.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:29:01 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote nods and allows Aria to be seated first if she has the inclination, before taking his own seat. He orders a Green Tea and inquires if the Cafe has sake available.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:29:31 ] Aria Jenneth > *she takes a place alongside Var*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:31:05 ] Varcutii Renalard > I understand you have an interest in the Society, Mr. Cassidy..
    [ 2016.06.05 17:32:13 ] Aria Jenneth > *considering the Amarr/Gallente qualities of the Cafe, it probably doesn't actually have sake*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:32:20 ] Aria Jenneth > *Tea, absolutely.*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:34:41 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote takes a sip of tea, taking a moment to appreciate the young brew... and to respond. It appears as though his deliberateness in his manner is natural. Aria may recognize this reserve and focus as traits of a practicing Wayist if she is familiar-
    [ 2016.06.05 17:36:20 ] Roland Cassidy > "I have a habit of wandering... I do not consider myself disloyal... or uncaring." He observes the two women. "I feel as though it would be my path to assist Lady Aspenstar, who has befriended me many times over, in any way that I can."
    [ 2016.06.05 17:37:45 ] Aria Jenneth > *cocks her head quietly, listening*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:39:19 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote placed her coffee cup down delicately...and regarded Cassidy earnestly with interest > I'd love to hear what brings you to us, at the present time.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:43:30 ] Roland Cassidy > "Gratitude... I have spent much time alone in the outer null regions. I am a mercenary. This is my tao.. I avoided acknowledging that path and in doing so brought much pain to my life and others. I do not revel in it, it is simply what I am." He sips.
    [ 2016.06.05 17:44:47 ] Aria Jenneth > *smiles faintly, but doesn't speak*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:44:51 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote nods at that, listening with her eyes, with respectful attention..
    [ 2016.06.05 17:46:28 ] Roland Cassidy > "I do not follow the scriptures... but this does not mean I do not see merit in those that keep to the Faith and abide by it with humility and kindness. I have respect, but it is simply not our way, our way is the Winds and our Ancestors."
    [ 2016.06.05 17:48:28 ] Varcutii Renalard > Are you familiar with the teachings of the scriptures and the customs of the Imperial, Amarr faith?
    [ 2016.06.05 17:48:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *nods, very slightly, as though she is hearing something confirmed*
    [ 2016.06.05 17:51:54 ] Roland Cassidy > He takes a moment to consider the question fully. "I have spent much time studying the teachings... I have in the past attempted what my people consider, unacceptable romantic relations with several Amarrian faithful."
    [ 2016.06.05 17:52:33 ] Roland Cassidy > "It was my priveledge to learn more of the culture and in turn learn more of them..."
    [ 2016.06.05 17:54:33 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote smiles slightly and switching to very relaxed tone with a wink> ... Khanid? ... Ni-Kunni... True Amarr?
    [ 2016.06.05 18:00:02 ] Roland Cassidy > "Lady Katerina Tzestu... is Khanid... and A shorter daliance with a Ni-Kunni Lady who asked that I maintain her privacy. Which I shall continue to observe." He smiles in return.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:01:59 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote grins and smiles before returning to a slightly more formal manner > It's nice to hear you've had an opportunity to spend time with members of the empire and that you are familiar with the culture.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:02:51 ] Roland Cassidy > "I am neither considered a loyalist nor a convert... but I am willing to defend the interests of my treasured friend... I believe I am correct in my understanding that this program in which you may consider me suits my... status."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:04:05 ] Varcutii Renalard > Yes. There is a program within the Society which would be well suited to one of your standing.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:05:48 ] Varcutii Renalard > The Legionarius program, accepts pilots who recognize the grave threat posed by the Drifter menace...to the Empire as much as the cluster as a whole.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:07:20 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* ... but who aren't part of, and don't wish to convert to, the Amarrian faith.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:08:33 ] Roland Cassidy > "I considered it an honor to fight against the Drifter Incursions along with my fellow mercenaries in Spectre Fleet. And I find myself in further disfavor with my own people for publicly chastising the Chief Executive Buerau for their lack of gumption
    [ 2016.06.05 18:08:39 ] Roland Cassidy > in dealing with the threat.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:10:49 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote looks to Aria at her mentioning of the open nature of the program > Indeed. The program and its entry as well, is quite open to pilots who feel a strong desire to directly do something about the Drifters, yet does not include faith tied obliga...
    [ 2016.06.05 18:11:16 ] Varcutii Renalard > obligations of a serious nature - conversion, and the like.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:16:39 ] Varcutii Renalard > If anything, we are a faithful Society. Who do have some faith based customs which do not necessarily, sit well with the cluster. You would be willing to, respect and understand the presence of slavory? Both privately and publicly as a member of the -c
    [ 2016.06.05 18:16:57 ] Varcutii Renalard > a member of the Legionarius program?

    Continued:

    [ 2016.06.05 18:17:57 ] Roland Cassidy > "Its my belief that efforts such as this are your faith's strongest tools for Reclaimation. The Way of the Winds is not a Faith in the way that Amarrian people might think, but instead a way to approach life... its similar but at once entirely different
    [ 2016.06.05 18:20:21 ] Roland Cassidy > "I can accept that the practice of slavery is propigated by the Faith... and recognize that it is the Holder's duty to ensure the safety and well being of the bound. But I would be untruthful if I did not express my hope that one day the Faith would
    [ 2016.06.05 18:20:35 ] Roland Cassidy > deign the practice no longer necessary."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:21:18 ] Aria Jenneth > ... there ... do seem to be a lot of us who feel that way.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:22:35 ] Roland Cassidy > "I also recognize that as an outsider, my personal opinion is best left... private."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:23:10 ] Aria Jenneth > *mute nod of agreement*
    [ 2016.06.05 18:23:51 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote nods at that, listening intently and following, takes a moment to sip her coffee, and setting the cup down > Having some familiarity with the Empire, its people, and ethnic population, How do you feel about the true amarr?
    [ 2016.06.05 18:27:51 ] Roland Cassidy > "I feel about them much the same way I feel about the Deitis as a Civire. Leaders often come from a long line of leadership. Respect of the past is important, and integral in navigating one's future. But quality is not simply composed by blood alone."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:30:23 ] Roland Cassidy > "There will always be some who deserve the laurels of birthright, as assuredly as there are many who bring dishonor to it." He drains his cup to the dregs. "I try to judge on a case to case basis."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:31:20 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote nods at that thoughtfully before switching to a tongue in cheek geniality > So... the whole notion, one lets the truebloods... because they're true bloods.. sit at the front of the interbus isn't really something you think is all that wonderfu...
    [ 2016.06.05 18:31:44 ] Varcutii Renalard > -wonderful, mmm?
    [ 2016.06.05 18:34:01 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote blinks. "Public transport is for the public... To my knowledge wouldn't most True Amarr patrons have means enough to use private transport?" He seems slightly confused.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:36:39 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's a little more variable than that, but ...
    [ 2016.06.05 18:37:42 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote looks down ... pauses a moment and then back up offering Cassidy a warm, very understanding smile, wholly bereft of any impolitess > I mean like, in theory.. hypothetically?
    [ 2016.06.05 18:40:30 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote nods. "The Universe is imperfect, the notion of fairness, is a child's dream. There is only merit... if one of higher caste is afforded a right, it is because their contemporaries deign that right to be merited."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:42:04 ] Roland Cassidy > "Regardless of the fairness or true worthiness of that percieved merit. If the people deign no longer to recognize that merit, it is up to that society to decide." He pauses.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:42:26 ] Roland Cassidy > "Until then I shall just pay the extra fee for private shuttles."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:43:37 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote nods and smiles > Shuttles are great, mm? Zip, zip soom. Such align, such wow!
    [ 2016.06.05 18:44:30 ] Aria Jenneth > ....
    [ 2016.06.05 18:45:18 ] Varcutii Renalard /emote looks to Aria with a wink and smile before returning to a serious tone and manner
    [ 2016.06.05 18:51:01 ] Roland Cassidy > "I don't percieve it to be a large problem... I have resided in the Empire before."
    [ 2016.06.05 18:53:44 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote nods at that and then looks to Aria > ... I think we have a really comprehensive apprecation for Mr. Cassidy's background. Do you believe i'm neglecting something?
    [ 2016.06.05 18:56:32 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I can't really ... think of anything, Ms. Renalard.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:57:53 ] Aria Jenneth > ... Thank you ... for speaking with us, Mr. Cassidy. We'll ... report to the Directrix, and you should have news soon after. *she rises, and bows politely*
    [ 2016.06.05 18:58:35 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote looks to Mr. Cassidy, and sits up, straightesn her blouse slightly, as she gets up not that it was ever really out of place as she shifts to a respectful formal manner > It's been genuinely good to meet and speak with you Mr. Cassidy.
    [ 2016.06.05 18:59:39 ] Roland Cassidy > "Thank you Ms Renalard, like wise." He turns to watch Aria get up. "Ms. Jenneth..." He rises... "Would you mind... speaking for a bit?"
    [ 2016.06.05 19:00:00 ] Aria Jenneth > ... alright. *she sits back down*
    [ 2016.06.05 19:00:38 ] Varcutii Renalard > /emote offers the pair a relaxed, if formal bow of sorts before she departs > May you both have a lovely cycle..
    [ 2016.06.05 19:01:13 ] Aria Jenneth > ... thank you, Ms. Renalard ...
    [ 2016.06.05 19:01:47 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote looks down. "I.... actually meant to ask if you would care for a drink... it's been a tough few months and I have a powerful thirst for some sake." He pauses.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:02:34 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I actually spoke with Ms. Renalard about maybe arranging some for the Lamp.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:02:53 ] Roland Cassidy > "And I can't help but think some of my responses landed close to the heart."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:05:21 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* ... we've ... in some ways walked similar paths, sir. ... The priests of your Way ... tend to look at us Achura as ... sharing the same beliefs, by a different name.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:07:30 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote nods. "I grew up in the same Prefecture as Landfall Temple... part of my duties was to help the priests tend the gardens." He refills his tea. "Until the day I was selected for the program, I had completely intended to follow in their steps."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:11:24 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *nods* I was ... a member of the Sujui monk clan, on Achura. ... Shuijing ["Crystal (of size and clarity suitable for jewelry)"] sect.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:12:51 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's not a time I can ... remember, anymore. My infomorph is damaged. ... but I seem to have left voluntarily to ... attend the Academy. Apparently I wanted to prove myself.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:15:02 ] Aria Jenneth > *she orders another pot of tea-- and a second cup*
    [ 2016.06.05 19:15:40 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote nods. "It is rare.. to find another capsuleer who has a similar tao. Difficult to balance the spirit with the warriors duties."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:17:05 ] Roland Cassidy > "And all too easy to simply disregard the spirit in hopes that it will ease dificulties of conscience."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:19:08 ] Aria Jenneth > *she considers this, then simply nods*
    [ 2016.06.05 19:21:49 ] Roland Cassidy > "I misjudged you... when we first spoke. I thought you seemed timid." He sets his cup down. "I failed to understand that what I was seeing was something akin to a mirror. And that stoicism is far from meekness."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:25:32 ] Aria Jenneth > *the additional tea having arrived, she refills Roland's cup, then her own*
    [ 2016.06.05 19:28:18 ] Aria Jenneth > *quietly* Well-- you'd not ... be the only person to see me in such a way. And in places, I do have to ... be meek, or give the appearance of it.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:28:27 ] Aria Jenneth > My formal status here is ... not high.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:30:53 ] Roland Cassidy > "You seem not to resent it... if I may be so frank to say."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:33:29 ] Aria Jenneth > Well ... I've accepted status as a retainer to Directrix Daphiti, bound by oath if not by formal fealty. It's something I did by my own choice.

    Part 3:


    [ 2016.06.05 19:37:57 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I was a wanderer, also. ... Like you, I see the Directrix as an admirable person. Like you, I find it easy to take life. ... that's not something I think is very much to my credit, though, if I am not careful ... who I allow to wield me.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:40:39 ] Roland Cassidy > "I do not find it easy to take a life... the truth is, I mourn the loss of every soul snuffed out by my actions... they are remembered." He shuts his eyes. "I am skilled in this act... in leading others to that path."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:41:17 ] Aria Jenneth > ... then you're ... maybe rather blessed, in this way.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:42:53 ] Roland Cassidy > "Perhaps... and maybe I have recently been capable of looking at it in such a way. But fleeing what I was... evading truth... this was more destructive."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:43:47 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I make myself remember, and remind myself of their importance. But in the end it feels like a masochistic act.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:46:00 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote reaches out and places his hand next to Aria's... a gesture of compassion... the Caldari way of saying, 'there is someone at your side'- without saying a word. "We all find our path eventually..."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:46:48 ] Aria Jenneth > *she bows her head a little* I ... know ... I have it in me to be, without regret, a murderous weapon.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:47:33 ] Aria Jenneth > It's something I would rather not become ... comfortable with being, so ...
    [ 2016.06.05 19:48:02 ] Aria Jenneth > To be here, the servant, agent, and blade of an honorable person ...
    [ 2016.06.05 19:50:11 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's not something I resent being at all.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:50:33 ] Roland Cassidy > "There are no sad cherry blossoms... for they do not understand that their most perfect moment preceeds their demise. Yet nature would not allow it to stop blooming even if it did."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:53:12 ] Roland Cassidy > "For what it's worth, I think you are admirable in your decision to serve... too many of our kind are preoccupied with serving themselves.
    [ 2016.06.05 19:56:44 ] Aria Jenneth > ... *she smiles a little, but seems to be having some trouble coming up with something to say*
    [ 2016.06.05 19:58:22 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote looks away. "I should go. Thank you Aria for our talk. I should hope to have many more with you."
    [ 2016.06.05 19:59:03 ] Aria Jenneth > ... I will ... look forward to them, sir. ... and ... ... thank you.
    [ 2016.06.05 20:00:46 ] Aria Jenneth > ... it's a little rare ... that I meet someone who understands this, even among the Amarr.
    [ 2016.06.05 20:02:04 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote stands and offers her the traditional bow. Opening his eyes to meet hers directly as he rises. Staring for a few moments too long. "That... is my pleasure."
    [ 2016.06.05 20:02:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *she rises, and bows back-- this time in Achur fashion*
    [ 2016.06.05 20:02:55 ] Aria Jenneth > ... please be well.
    [ 2016.06.05 20:05:36 ] Roland Cassidy > /emote turns and walks out quietly. Waiting until he exits the Cafe to take a moment and lean against one of the station bulkheads. He holds onto a thought for a moment... looking both pensive and relieved, before continuing to the docking bay.
    [ 2016.06.05 20:07:13 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote remains behind, watching the mercenary dapart, before settling back in her seat. After a long moment, she sips her tea.*
