The atmosphere of the situation was eerie at best. Liaena did her best to come up with excuses and calm any hostility, but Sharon noticed how the Orc's glare penetrated her gaze as her eyes, growing redder by the second; slowly turned towards the Night Elf.
Before the Orc could open her mouth and say anything to the ill tempered Night Elf, Sharon stepped up, having already confiscated Rithrynn's bow, he went up next to Liaena, placing a hand on her shoulders.
"Sharon Dal'Dieb, Captain of the Silver Covenant. We are glad to have met you, honored Crusaders." The High Elf spoke out in a high, and pleasantly surprised sounding tone as he gazed forward at the Crusaders infront of them.
"We have spent days trekking through the cursed woods of southern Quel'Thalas. We are tired and worn out after the journey... " Sharon noticed the relaxed attitude of the Orc as she gazed at him, but he quickly remembered about her ire towards the Night Elf, and the High Elf quickly turned and looked towards Rithrynn.
"This is our guardian. She has kept us safe throughout the journey... and she has slain a lot of undead beasts that tainted the forest, she even killed a dark wizard who threatened to curse us all!"
"I di,-" But before Rithrynn could ask, Sharon motioned to Liaena; whom quickly and secretly punched the elf in her backside with her elbow.
"She takes her role very seriously, and only a few hours ago, one of the undead leapt out of the shrub and almost got my dear Li here, which she still blames herself for... "
The Crusaders were still pointing at them with their swords and Crossbows, but Sharon could see that the fury in their eye and battle lust had faded away a little.
The Orc Captain no longer looked as if she was about to kill Rithrynn with her own arrow, but now looked at the High Elf, giving him a short nod before she looked down at his black robes.
"And why the hallow's end outfit?
"Ehrm... deception, ma'am. We had hoped to attract less attention from Scourglings by dressing up at them?
The Orc gave him a cold look, before letting out a sigh, lowering her arms and placing one hand dangerously on the hilt of her sword resting in its sheath by her side.
"If you wanted to trick the Scourge you are too late - the Lich King's puppets have all but abandoned the Ghost Lands long ago, leaving only their pitiful slaves to walk around in their neverending nightmare."
"Ahh, I didn't know... " Sharon replied, bowing his head in apology. "I haven't been to the Ghostlands, in... years."
"Hrmf, well then, Sharon. I am Gar'za Ironblood, officer of the Argent Crusade. And these are my loyal soldiers, tasked to guard the northern perimeter of Stratholme against the undead monstrosities. You are lucky we know that the Cults have left the Ghostland, or you'd all been neck deep in kodo dung by now... "
Gar'za turned her eyes towards Rithrynn, giving the Night Elf an angry, but somewhat patient stare as she studied the purple elf - as if eying a football and trying to determine how far she could kick it.
"You may come with us, but that dope-eyed fool will remain unarmed until I say otherwise. Is that clear?!"
The Orc bellowed out loudly as her gaze returned to Sharon, and the High Elf bowed gracefully, giving her a friendly smile as he nodded with his head. "No problem, Officer Ironblood. I assure you, she will cause no further disaster."
