"Well, very well. Though, it's not much of a story" Selene smile as she began
"Legend has it, as it often does, that there was a time, before memory, when our world was whole, and all was good. Yet, like all good things, it calls out to those from beyond the void who wish to make it their own. Against such a threat, the one who created the world, whom we called the Great Father, and his eldest daughter, the Dreamer, became the world's defenders.
For eons they fought against our eternal foes, and after eons, the Dreamer grew weary. She wished to bring the Brazier of Desire, the mightiest of treasures the Great Father held, upon the creatures of the world, so they would grow, and those who were strong enough to survive the change would join her in the eternal war.
The Great Father refused, fearing the immense power of the Brazier would turn the young world to cinder. The conflict could not be resolved, and a fierce battle occurred between them, during which the Brazier was shattered, leaving behind only the Willful Dark and the Formless Flame.
As the Dreamer fell from the sky, the Willful Dark came with her, and as her bittered soul wished, turned the site of her fall into a land separated entirely from the outside world.
The Great Father, weakened and wounded, could no longer defend this world, so he gave his youngest child the other half of the Brazier, the Formless Flame. The Flame were to be spread around the world, seeding the boundless wish for better things into every creatures, so they would grow powerful in their own way, rivaling his might one day.
As for my ancestors, who witnessed the spreading of the Flame, they believed as the Flame grow, its other half would seek to maintain the balance, and so, to keep the Dark satiated, they went into the land of the Dreamer. Over generations, the Dark scarred our souls since birth, giving us magic, and upon it, we built our society, just as you, the "outlanders", built yours upon technology"
the vixen paused for a moment
"According to legend, at least"

David listened to all Selene said and nodded along. "I have... no idea how to respond to that," he confessed, "except to say that, after today, I think we're stronger standing together, yes?"

Jay tilted her head at Selene's tale. "Got it." She, in fact, barely understood it.

"That was of course, just a story" Selene giggled "You don't have to take it literally. Civilizations all over the world from ancient time have had their own version of creation myth, this was just our own is all"

"Looks like it's unanimous, love," David commented, sitting between Jay and Selene.
"What's a Una Mouse," Scruff quietly asked Sam and Fletch. (Although Lucky could probably hear too.)
"Un-an-i-mous." Fletcher whispers back, sounding it out for the raccoon before Selene starts the story.
"It means we all agree."

~~~~~~~~

"Dat's an interesting story. I like it." Sam smiles with a nod.
"What's dis brazier ting dough? You said it was powerful and a mighty treasure but not what made it so or what its power was. I guess it wasn't relevant to de story but I'd still like to know."

"What I'd like to know is what happened to the Great Mother. If there's a Great Father and children, wouldn't there be a Great Mother too? Unless it's like Christianity where the one God is everything." Fletcher muses, sipping her drink and nibbling at a complimentary breadstick.
"I'd also like to know what's keeping our food."

"well....." Selene looked away for a second, with a sly smile "I suppose some would call it something like that, but" the vixen looked back, with only a hint of the smile remain "Whatever the source is, most of us were born with ability use magic"

"Funny enough, that same question has been around since even before I was born" Selene smiled and chuckled "Some theorize that the Brazier held the power of creation, others argue it must have been a weapon, hence its supposed might, some even proposed that it's merely symbolism, representing the might of unity, but at least for now, no one knows for sure"

"Well, not "one god is everything", to be precise, my people believe that the Great Father created his children, not giving birth to them, so the word "father" doesn't carry the usual meaning in this case"

David smiled slightly. "The way things are going," he joked, "this Brazier probably in an antique shop in town. And I have to be really careful about how I say that, believe me. I'll try not to talk about more than one of them..."

Scruff hopped off the chair and up to one of the serving people. "Um, Is Miss Fletcher's food coming," he asked.

With barely a glance in his direction, Fletcher grabs the thieving fox by his cast and tugs him back.
"Oh no you don't! Swiper, no swiping! Bring that back!" she scolds.

"No, thank you, Selene! Dat was an interestin' story! So, if it's not rude to ask, what sort of magic can you use? Could you show us some?" Sam asks.

"Like I said, sweetie." Fletcher smiles, an effect made gruesome by her scars.
"I don't fight fair. I fight for survival. Next time I'll pull it right off. Thanks, Scruff." Once the food is safely back on the table, Fletcher releases the fox and gently shoves him away.
"Now, why don't you go play with the pups and let us grownups talk." she suggests before turning to David and the raccoon.
"Now THAT'S how you do a cheap shot."

Sam hides her giggle with a cough into the crook of her arm.
"So, uh, magic, Selene?" she prompts.

"right!" Selene smiled , pretending that nothing happened like a few seconds ago.
"it's kind of not allowed to do these sort of things, but, i suppose we here are an exception already" she said, handing Sam a napkin "would you mind tearing that in two?"

"The chat often is, Jay," David reassured her, "but I think the lunacy is specific to Lucky." David winked to the young Tod, then looked down to the table to see the picture Jay'd been working on. "|You learn quickly, sweetheart. It's better than I could do."

Scruff got back on his seat, put his chin in his hands and waited happily to see if Selene replied to Sam.

"Not allowed? What do you mean?" Sam asks as she tears the napkin in half.
"Should I sign one half too?" she jokes, causing Fletcher to snicker and almost choke on her drink. She thumps the bigger doe on her back as she waits for her next instruction.

Whole lotta good it did us..
Hush.. We just didn't have the training to fight the supernatural
"Trust is only one part of it" the vixen chimed in "Our form of magic is severely harmful for both the user and reality itself. We don't use it because it grants us anyway particular advantages, we use it because we have to.
Beside, I know the idea of magic sounds very ....er... "magical", but what if I tell you that you guys are the one holding the advantage over us?"

"Well," David said, doing his best to look innocent (whilst winking down to Jay) "I'd say I believe you, Selene, but you might need to explain more? For, um, Lucky's benefit?"

"Can you do that with money, Miss Selene," Scruff asked wonderingly.

Jay beamed lightly at David's compliment to her creative work, and mostly listened along to Selene talking. She caught David's wink, not that she fully understood the meaning, but backed up David's suggestion. "Yeah, Lucky needs to hear more." She said, nodding sagely, despite having somehow failed to see the impossibility of the repaired napkin.

It's just simple 'slide of paw', even you could learn to do it, if you practiced at it enough.Lucky yips back to David.

"My pawwriting is horrendous, so I wouldn't ruin a napkin for that" the vixen giggled.
"As for your question, our magic isn't as convenient as you might think.

Most of us only align with one element since our birth, and with that nature comes many restriction. Unless your alignment is wind, it is nearly impossible to travel by air. If you don't have a talent for earth magic, it would take years to simply build a tower of decent size. and building anything close to skyscrapers or even something as common as apartment buildings is simply impossible. It's not something we could change over time by learning or practicing, we can only improve upon what was already given to us.

Meanwhile, with technology, any of you can take to the sky, sail across the sea, build forests of concrete and iron that become home for billions of people. Any of you can communicate with one another even if you're on the opposite ends of the world, without delay, and all of that can be achieved by anyone, if they learn how to do it.
You see what I mean?"

David sat down between Selene and Jay again. "Tell me, guys," he said, "you know what you'd do with the power but..." he indicated someone passing by, "what would HE do with it? You know as well as I do that not everyone who has an ability has the training to use it. It's not perfect but it's better than, uh," he paused, noting one of the café patrons was watching with concern, "filling the role play with wounded."

Lucky smiles coyly, like only a fox can. an saunters over to scruff to lean down to whisper into his ear.
wild born predators like us, can never seriously injure or kill another pet.
If we do, the humans will make sure that are pelt is hanging on the wall by the next day.
An they are only slight more lenient with the DOEmestics.
Keep any talk of killing to yourself, if you don't want to be locked into a muzzle and shock collar, if not caged.

Lucky sullenly intones.

"Oh, yeah." Fletcher agrees.
"Last thing we want's a total party wipe." she adds, hoping the nerdy term will put the patron off listening.
"If there's one thing I know about D&D it's that you should never trust anyone with magic powers that the DM introduces to the game. NPCs can turn into villains in an instant."

"Yeah. Or energy. Drainin' your own reserves. Ooh!" Sam answers the fox, suddenly realising at least part of what she's getting at.

"Never would anyway, Mr Lucky," Scruff whispered back. "I like 'em all too much. And you," he added, slipping a sly kiss onto Lucky's muzzletop as only an innocent child can.
