45th of Fall, 519AV

Half a season had passed since the mysterious wave of metamorphic magic had spread across the settlement, leaving everyone within it stuck in a body that was vastly different from the one they were born with. That meant that half a season remained before they would all revert back to their original forms, something Kamilla had decided would be, without a doubt, bitter/sweet. On one hand, she did long for the familiar height, dark hair and tanned skin of her real body, while at the same time she knew she'd be sad to see the gills and beautiful lavender irises go. She'd grown quite fond of her aquatic capability, spending at least some time beneath the waves every day, even after her horrific experience with the fish people and giant shark.

Having just come from the Syka Mercantile, Kamilla was making her way through the settlement, along the Cobbled Pathway, followed by her cart golem Wally. Inside the bolt were the mage's newest purchases, a large bolt of white cloth as well as a new bolt of green cloth. She'd been having a minor rodent problem in her cave and it seemed the vermin had taken to chewing on her work supplies, leaving her short on material.

Lavender eyes searched the horizon for any sight of the odd fish creatures, the odd pull of the ocean that seemed to come with her semi aquatic form always present in the back of her mind. It was as if her body longed for the sensation of being surrounded by water, the increased pressure holding her like a comforting blanket. The Konti allowed her thoughts to wander where her body currently could not, visualising what it would be like to slip into the waters and just keep swimming. Who knew what the rest of the Suvan Sea could be hiding.

Her daydream did not last long. A few shouts and one scream reaching Kamilla's ears from somewhere behind her, along with the growing sound of something big moving through the nearby jungle, branches cracking and snapping along with whatever was causing it. Perhaps one of the large creatures Lars kept at the woodmill? She couldn't be sure.

The sound kept growing louder and closer.

"Lookout!"

Turning to find the source of the warning, Kamilla had caught a glimpse of something very long and giant coming towards her and was forced to dive out of the way, landing with a soft thud in soft sand and rolling over to face the giant unidentified thing.

Even though it's front had long since passed her, Kamilla's heart sunk, lavender eyes catching the middle and then last of the things body, the serpentine movement of its massive tail easily knocking over her cart, Wally, it's contents scattering across the sand.

It was a snake. An enormous one, she knew that much. Was it a Dhani? She'd never seen one that gigantic before and considering the ones she'd seen easily neared twenty feet in length, this one was truly a whole other kind of big.

Barely a tick had passed since her desperate dive when an armed man came running past her with sword in hand, while the dark hue of his skin was unfamiliar, Kamilla recognised the facial features, it was Buraga.

The Konti mage watched from her space on the ground as the akalak angrily lunged toward the massive creature, giving a wide swing of his blade which caught the retreating snake, opening a thin horizontal cut near its tail end. The snake did not react, nor did Kamilla notice any blood on the sand or Buraga's blade.

Slowly getting to her feet, Kamilla watched as the giant anaconda quickly coiled itself around one of the four post beds scattered about the Commons and began to crush it with ease, it's massive head alert and watching any that approached it. The sound of wood splintering as it crushed within the snake's grasp made her uneasy as she imagined them as the bones of anyone caught by the monstrosity.

"What's going on!? What is that thing!?" She was asking anyone and no one at the same time, it was obvious that the gargantuan anaconda was a threat to the settlement and needed to be dealt with.
