"Oh? Well keeping from distraction might a bit difficult Miss Doo," says one of the three travelling companions with an amused smile, a grey unicorn with white mane and tail by the name of Mythos Gray who asks with a chuckle, "as how can I keep myself from being distracted when led by such a lovely mare?" The stallion seemed to have a look of amusement on his face, perhaps finding he words amusing or it would perhaps seem he was not taking this as seriously as he should. It was hard to tell.
Mythos was the adventurer’s information and history pony, one that had stepped forward to offer his services and expertise in finding Book of Khafka and unlike many was one of the few ponies to actually take Daring seriously when it came to the idea that the book may still actually exist. He even offered to do it without payment, saying the discovery of an amazing story was all he wanted to find. He had explained and shown his knowledge in ancient history not only of Equestria but of many lands around about, even showing that he was a linguist and understood the very langauge believed was used in the Book of Khafka.
The stallion had shown he was one of confidence and charm, his Canterlot upbringing showing clearly in his words and manner. Yet he was also a more positive example of a unicorn from such a city, being polite and friendly even to ponies not a unicorn like himself. Yet he had one major flaw that Daring had learned very quickly… that he was a terrible flirt and charmer, and though she would not know such Mythos was also notorious as a flankchaser.
Mythos had never worked with Daring Doo before or even meet her, though he did know of her through the books written about this mare of adventure. It was because of this that he had so quickly stepped forward when he heard she was looking for a pony knowledgeable in the Book of Khafka, as he seemed to find her intriguing . It could be asked, how better to learn about the mare behind the books then to travel with her on an adventure?
Golden Dawn on the other hoof kept silent, honestly not much liking the stallion and still uncertain if he had made the right choice in spending his week off from the palace going on an adventure with a mare he thought was a fictional character. Yet Raven Feather, in her quiet way on sneaking about, had heard Daring Doo was looking for those to go with her in finding a book and had thought of him. His friend and fellow guard had said this was a chance for him to have some fun and that the adventurer needed a protector.
Though he had not admitted it, he had looked to prove himself and put his training to the test. It would also probably be more exciting than standing around the palace all day. Yet this had also been the chance to visit his parents in Hollow Shades, but Raven had said she would go and tell them why he would not be there. This brought a different concern, his parents getting the wrong idea between him and Raven and that she was more than a friend. Knowing Raven, she would actually have fun with this and he would have no way of being there to set things straight.
With a sigh the pegasus brought his attention back to Daring Doo and her instructions of not falling behind or getting distracted and Golden answers in a serious tone, “I have offered to guard and protect you Daring Doo, I will not allow such to happen.” Though he hid it well enough Golden was nervous, as he had never been on an adventure and he was still trying to get his mind around the idea that he was being the bodyguard of a pony he had thought was fictional, a mare shown to be the greatest adventurer in Equestria.
