    Mask:

    An alluring young beauty, Sonnie Wu is 5'2" and lean-bodied, with a light, nimble step and eyes that seem to say "Hey, you know what would be fun?" Her reddish-brown hair often seems slightly unkempt, and an amused smile regularly plays on her lips. Sonnie is usually dressed casually or for outdoor activity. She almost always wears a pair of red leather tabi boots.
    Mien:

    To the eyes of Fae, Sonnie's feet are like those of a monkey: Toes as long as fingers, with one on each foot being opposable like a thumb. A long monkey tail protrudes from the base of Sonnie's spine, covered in hair the same shade as her head. It appears to be prehensile, and often moves to react to her mood and dances about when she speaks, like people who "talk with their hands." Finally, her brown eyes turn golden.
    Mundane Equipment:

    Smart phone, messenger bag, quarterstaff, 2 throwing knifes (concealed), 3 goblin fruit (changes by season), mountain bike.

    Sonnie figured out which fork to use by subtly watching Seraphina choose one. Okay, she wasn't that subtle about it. Still, mission accomplished!

    The conversation was on topics she knew little to nothing about. Or rather, on things she no longer remembered. It was... frustrating that she had nothing to add, and that she felt like she could have, at one time.

    Fortunately, the Beast had a nice chicken dinner set before her. Correct fork in hand, she dug in. Food soothed the the bad feelings away.

    "It tastes delightful!" Sonnie announced, before she swallowed her current mouthful of chewed chicken. Oops! She covered her mouth and finished chewing.

    Softly shimmering gold flakes catch the light whenever she moves, delicate gilded and diamond scales extenuate the luminescent sapphires that are her eyes. The ocean lives in Sera's eyes, perfectly cut sapphires, gleam in the light. Deeper shades always shifting like the tide. The scales trail up to her temples and forehead. Her hair reaches down her back, brushing the back of her knees, spun silver and gold. Very fine diamond dust falls loose from her hair when she moves, reflecting rainbows from the light. The scales on her hands are dulled by the simple fact that her hands are translucent.

    She nods as she carefully touched her napkin to the sides of her mouth, “Yes, Paris was simply magical! Though I do hope we get to go back someday, there is just so many things to see there.” And one trip was not enough. “Rome sounds like it would be a wonderful place to visit.” Of course, any place with Rhodes was wonderful to her.

    Another bite was taken as Alex offered a new question to Sonnie.

    A sad nod, “While the painting is in fact small, it has a very large presence. If I had to guess, I would say it was roughly an eight by ten?” looking to Rhodes for clarification. “But worth seeing in person, just to be able to see it. Though the Louvre has so much to offer, the Egyptian exhibit was breathtaking!” she gushed.

    “Oh, it’s delicious!” she complimented.

    If Sera saw Sonnie watching which fork she used, she didn’t say anything about it.

    Rhodes simply nods as at the qurstion of the meal. Another, more enthusiastic nod in agreement with Sera's assessment of the painings. "Something like that. I confess, I don't know a wealth about art, but there was a reverance there, like one might find in a large cathedral. I had hoped to see Notre Dame, but what with the Fire, and the restoration..." He shrugs.

    "But what about you, Alex?" He asks with a smile. "Do you like to travel?"

    Keeping conversation going? All too easy. Something twisting, a barb in the back of his mind, reminded him that there was a reason.

    Goes by Jack. Has never introduced himself to anyone as Jacque.

    Educated, scholarly, lawyer, scientist.
    Jack's outward demeanor and tone are a baseline of respectful and calculated.

    He actively debates, persuades, negotiates and even at time tries to intimidate, as core skills of any lawyer worth his salt.

    Alex nodded at Rhodes' comments, "Absolutely. I'm not exactly what one would call 'a man of the church' but one does have to appreciate some of the art and architecture that was born of that passion."

    He sets down his fork and takes a sip of the wine before answering his question, "At one time, yes. Unfortunately I'm so wrapped up in work these days that a luxury like that is one I simply can't make time for. I rarely am able to spend personal time outside of evenings anymore."

    Dessert menus begin to be handed out as the previous entertainer returns for his second act. He engaged with banter to some of the table and after a few warm up acts (and confirming most had finished their entrees) he completed his finale- sword swallowing of both single and multiple flat blades.

    1. Crème Brûlée
    2. Chocolate Truffle cake
    3. Tiramisu


    Part way through the act he rests a hand on the table towards Sonnie to signal for her attention and leaned in to ask, "Enjoying yourself?" A coy smile accompanied the question. He hand't learned much of anything about the mysterious woman, but he had come to terms with that inevitability much earlier in the night.

    "Oh, the Egyptian exhibit? Did they have mummies?" Sonnie leaned towards Seraphina curiously, "Did they come to life?"

    Her fleeting attention was grabbed by Alex for the moment, and she smiled and nodded, "Oh, I'm having fun. The food has been..." there was a pause as the Beast searched for a word she hadn't yet used. She'd said delightful already. Hmmm. "...delicious?"

    A pedestrian compliment, but it was still accurate.

    Then there was the dessert options. The only words she recognized on the menu were chocolate and cake. So that's what she went with.

    After that, where her attention was concerned, it was all about the sword-swallowing performance.

    It had been disappointing about Notre Dame. But who knew what the future held.

    Nodding to Alex, “There is something about the architecture and the stunning shape it cuts in the landscape that draws everyone. No matter what you believe, there is no denying the power of the structure and sheer history it has seen and housed.” She wasn’t religious, not at all. But the historic cathedrals were stunning buildings.

    “That’s too bad, I hope you’re able to make some time for yourself soon.” Though she wasn’t one to talk. “Evenings like these, or even taking in a local art show, make life worth living.” Or finding the love of your life.

    Looking over the menu, she decides on the Crème Brûlée. She applauds and gasps at the sword swallowing! Truly an amazing feat!

    Nodding at Sonnies question, “They did! I’m anxious to show you the pictures from the trip, some are of the mummies!” the next questions brought a laugh, “If they did, they did it after the museum closed, so I didn’t get to see it.”

    The Autumn nods along with Alex. "Oh, quite. I'm not a religious man either, but you cannot help but feel a very real and literal awe in such places." He sips his own wine as Alex responds, and slips his hand over one of Sera's. "Oh, I used to think so too, but I strongly suggest you make the time. I certainly have no regrets, work or no."

    Rhodes turns to watch the act with a clinical fascination, as if he is trying to work out how the tricks are done. His tiramasu is delicately carved with the spoon, and sliently offered towards Sera, his hand under the spoon to catch anything that might risk her fabulous dress.

    He chuckles at Sonnie's comment. "I wouldn't like to think what would be needed to deal with such things."

    Alex grinned at the compliment of the food, "I'm glad." It was a challenge to try to tailor the evening to the evasive personality and his pride couldn't help but swell from Sonnie's affirmation.

    He nodded to Sera and Maxwell's sentiments, "Well, I've at least drawn the metaphorical line in the sand that nights are my own." A light-hearted shrug, "Still doesn't leave much of a window for personal travel but it works for me."

    Choosing the Crème Brûlée himself, he picks up his spoon and gently cracks through the caramelized surface. "So Sonnie, do you have any other hobbies outside of kung fu?" He motions to his guests, "If you'd like another round of drinks, by all means don't be shy."

    "I wanna see a living mummy! We should totally go there and hide in the ladies room until after hours, Sera. Then we can sneak out and see them shuffle around!" It was a brilliant plan, and not at all illegal.

    Sonnie smiled at Rhodes, "Cats, I think. That's what the movie said. Mummies are afraid of cats."

    There was never a cat Beast around when you needed one.

    Her attention was once more briefly focused on Alex. She laughed, "Other hobbies? Well, I have... many. Like, I don't know..." Don't say eating. Don't say eating. Don't say eating.

    "Eating?"

    Her heart skipped a beat at the words. Even though they had been together as long as they had, and were engaged, he still gave her butterflies. A loving smile offered to him. Looking back to Alex, “I’ve recently been taking some time off from work and school to focus more on those around me and enjoying life.” How long it would last remained to be seen.

    Sapphires light up at the offer of a taste, accepting the spoon careful, she tries it. “Oh, that is wonderful! The perfect amount of sweet!” she compliments. Breaking into her own desert, she offers him a taste.

    “Well, I hope you get the chance to travel. There is so much to see in the world, many adventures to be had.” Everyone should get to travel in her opinion.

    Smiling, “Very generous of you, thank you.” Though she was still quite happy with her water.

    Laughing, “If we do that, we would need to plan it out. Floor plans, ways to enter and exit, the whole thing. One does not go blindly into such a situation.” She would always play along with Sonnie.

    “What about your parkour?” she asks, her tone encouraging, “It’s something I could never do, and from what I’ve seen, it takes a tremendous amount of skill and talent.” Come on girl, talk yourself up!
