In the dead of night, a hooded figure slipped through the southern gate into Riften. Two Daedric swords were sheathed on either side of his belt. From beneath the hood, a pair of sapphire blue eyes scanned the silent streets.

A howl echoed through the streets, but not a normal howl. There was something about this noise that sent shivers up the spines of adults and children scrabbling for their parents. Most of those left in the streets hurried to their homes, tonight was not a good night to be out. A guard spotted a sliver of silver in the trees, moving, but when he turned to shout for his friends it was gone. A large wolf slipped into the canal that ran through Riften, slowly swimming towards the city. It slipped through the wooden bars into the city and climbed quickly into the shadows, shaking itself before padding towards a dark corner.

Hearing the noise, and seeing the remaining townsfolk flee, the hooded figure slipped into the shadows, unfazed by the chilling howl. Curiosity got the better of him, however, and he began to make his way silently over to the source of the noise. He placed a hand on one of his swords, prepared to fight if need be.

Two hooded men stood on a balcony. One had his eye covered, the other tall and slender with dark blue eyes. They looked out over city as breeze blew their capes. A howl rang out and caused the one to shutter. "You are used to that yet are you?"
The ones man glanced at the other replying, "it's not something you would want to get used to."
The other only smiled a smile. He watched the town folk flee. 'This is going to get interesting.' He thought.
There was a long silence between the two as they watched the people scramble below. The taller of the two men spoke at long last, "Damn, it's good to be back."

The hooded man below felt eyes lingering on the scene from above. He turned and scanned the rooftops, spotting the two men.

"He is new." The green-eyed man said. Looking as own at him. The other nodded watching intently.

The young man glanced back in the direction of the noise, then back at the two strange men. Decisively, he removed his hand from his sword and began walking in their direction.

This time green-eyed man smiled beneath his scarf. "Well someone is a little forward aren't they?" The other glanced at his partner, "Krow, you know I won't let anything happen to this city."
"Yes." Krow replied. He knew his old friend was distraught sense his wife and his new born child had left for Hammerfell to fight for the Daggerfall Covenant. The city of Riften had always been his friend, Solduiran's home though Krow knew Solduiran hadn't been born here. It was from here Solduiran, also know as the Seeker, ran an complex web of contacts that spanned into every reach of Tamriel.
"Good, I am curious to see what this newcomer seeks." With that Solduiran leapt from the balcony and landed on the street kneeling. His friend Krow landed a foot to his right. Both stood to face the newcomer.

The newcomer smiled wryly beneath his hood. He felt as though the cocky smirk would hide his surprise that the pair had approached him. The situation made him nervous. He placed a hand back on his sword. "You two... You're werewolf hunters?"

Solduiran spoke,"far from it."
Krow spoke sharply, "I wouldn't call them friends..." Solduiran cut him off.
"I do." He said looking at Krow.

He removed his hand from his sword once more and looked at Krow. "They aren't all monsters you know. It's good to see you have an understanding for people like me." He finished, nodding at Solduiran. He swept his hood off, revealing his short black hair, piercing blue eyes, and the jagged scar that disfigured his right cheek. "I am Katyr," he said, bowing to the two men, "A gentleman of fortune, if you will. And I've found myself in need of coin. I've been told Riften is the place to be."

An old Redguard man sat by himself on the porch of the Riften inn. His weathered hands grasped an intricately carved wooden pipe. Every now and then a small orange glow could be seen as the man took a puff. When he exhaled he would blow perfect smoke rings into the air. It was a rare sight to see him in such a large city, for he did not often seek the comfort of a walled in society. He was a stubborn old man and kept his business to himself. Few knew his name, and fewer still cared to know it.

The Redguard was in the middle of blowing another round of smoke rings when an ear piercing howl was heard. It was an unnatural sound and frightened many of the villagers and they scrambled for their homes. As an experienced survivalist, he immediately knew that the sound was not that of a wolf. No it came from something more sinister. He had dealt with them before and did not wish to do so again if he could afford it.

Taking a cue from the fleeing townsfolk, the Redguard put out his pipe and began to walk towards the main gate to return to the wilderness where he felt more at home. He rounded his way around a corner on his way to the gate when he stumbled into a conversation. All he heard was about needing some coin and that Riften was the place to find it. "Ha! Riften is a good place to go to lose your coin maybe, never could earn much myself from these greedy types down here." The man's voice was slow and heavy, sounding almost as if it were tiring to speak.

Solduiran removed his hood. The face of a young man with short messy brown hair and dark blue eyes smiled a big smile at the stranger. His friendly face had a dark shadow of stubble on it from when he had shaved the last. "Welcome to Riftin, Katyr. I am Solduiran Long-Finger. And this is Krow." He gestured to his right where Krow Stood. Krow muttered to hi,self, "great another dog..."

Solduiran looked the old man sadly. But said to him, "You sound like someone else I know" the words of his wife rang in his head as she expressed her distrust in the city.

Solduiran glared at Krow before turning to Katyr. "You see I am a man of information, and that information is what gives me fortune. Now how do you wish to make this fortune?"
Krow grumbled quietly to himself.

Katyr's eyes locked onto the Redguard first filled with hope that it might be a man from his past, then sadness upon realizing the foolishness of his elation. He turned back to Solduiran. "It's a pleasure to meet you both," he said nodding to both men, "as for my preferences in work, I'm... Well I'm a bit of a hunter. But lately my quarry's numbers have been dwindling by my hand, making my work difficult. A man can't track what isn't moving."

Solduiran looked to Krow. Then back at Katyr. "A hunter..." He thought rapidly. "I could have use for you, if you wish to work with us."
