IC (Manuka): Manuka stood atop the Po-koro wall, surveying the desert beyond. The lost koro, as some had taken to calling it, was currently a peaceful place. Harsh, perhaps, still a little broken from what it had suffered, even tense at what might yet come, but for now, its residents could enjoy a little peace and security. Manuka was proud of that. He was only a mercenary, true, hired to bolster the ranks of the sentinels, but he had come to like the place. It was his home on Mata Nui, and unless something major came up, he expected it to stay that way.
He turned from watching the desert, and looked back down upon the village. A trade caravan to Ko-koro was just getting ready to leave, while other beings bustled about the bazaar. An orange Skakdi caught his eye, as did a very large toa-like being going into an inn. Not long after, there was a small disturbance at the far end of the village with a few sentinels involved. It ended in a n orange and grey toa in a hat walking away from the group and out into the village. It seemed a busy place, not lacking in exciting events, but most importantly, to Manuka, most of the beings inside seemed to be getting on well with each other. It was a good day.
OOC: Manuka open for interaction.
IC (Pukena): At the Po-wahi quarry, another being was watching the goings on. She wasn't a miner really, she was just there to cart the stone they produced back to Po-koro when her cart was full. All thoughts of stone, however, fled her mind when a toa walked into the quarry, looking like she might soon collapse from weariness.
After a moment, a small gust of wind blew a puff of sand towards Naona, and that sand began to spin upwards as if it had been taken by a dust devil. It was no mere wind that caused the movement, however, because shapes were forming from within the mass of grains: two legs, a head, a body and eventually arms as well. When the last grain finally moved into place, the sand was no longer sand, but a mound of metal and muscle.
"Well, well, well." Pukena said with a smile. "If it isn't the leiutanant, finally back in the wahi. We've all been wondering where you'd got to."
