    Ram

    Mask
    Six foot, barrel chested, and didn't skip leg day. Ram is a muscle bound behemoth. His face and body are scarred from numerous injuries and his movements look stilted with pain occasionally. Still, his craggy face does soften occasionally.

    Mien
    Ram looks like he could knuckle walk if he wanted. His arms and chest are enormous. More akin to a gorilla than human. His skin is an amalgamation of stony hide with fire cracks running through it and pieces of Fey machinery grafted at the joints. Segmented pieces of metal are bolted to run down his spine legs. Wood covers his skull with willow leaves providing hair, while curved bone horns sprout from the foliage.

    "Yeah," Ram confirmed as Yamiyo showed the sign for teacher.
    <Yes.>

    "I'm fine. I'll keep it in mind. What's the sign for keep and mind?"
    He'd read somewhere that you only really needed to know a hundred basic words or so for rudimentary communication. Felt like a lot more.
    <I good. Know in the future I>

    "Well, I do ram," he said with a half smile.
    <I ram.>

    "Makes sense. Like I'd be R or Breaker. How do you sign makes sense, and breaker?"
    <Know well. R my name. How sign M A K E S E N S E B R E A K E R person?>
    the fingerspelling went on for way longer after he finished his sentence.

    "What would you do differently?" he asked curiously. The Render had just taken on a new name himself, if he was going to need another one it would be nice to have the opinion of someone who spoke the language.
    <How name today you?>

    "No need to be modest, in case you need it so is it actually good for the brain." Putting her cup aside to get up to do seven jumps while tossing her arms out before sitting down again and drinking some. "I quite like it myself, then again my small size does not retain heat all that well when not in movement." Might be part of why she needed to move more than him, nevertheless the cocoa did help.

    Shaking a bit.
    "Do not ram into me please, you could probably make me fly quarter of a mile if you did." Softly chuckling, a bit exaggerated perhaps but still it would be far.

    Sipping some more cocoa, lightly tapping her lips.
    "Hmm now that is hard. These are the signs for them individually." Slowly showing him each individual sign. "However a name is better when it's quick so if you wanna create a name from it so should you try out a way that feels best for you. Now of course you can use the full combination." Slowly showing him again. "Or you can combine, breakdown or set them all up until you find what feels like you. Unlike spoken names so can sign names be a lot more individual, it's not important to get the full signing of things out but rather to create the sign that is you. So you will have to work with what I just showed you and create your own." Giving him a kind smile. "Do not rush it though, take your time and try them all around until you feel satisfied."

    A quick blush accompanied by a giggle.
    "Honestly? I would probably try to make it cuter or lovelier, perhaps focusing more on who I am or just use the meaning of the second part of my name. Avoiding the darkness aspects."

    "Let's go for a stroll then," Ram said happily nd got up suddenly, though him noticing her shaking factored in as well. Sacramento may not be the deadly cold of elsewhere but for those that got used to the heat, chilly started to mean something else.

    He paused to see if she'd follow but also to try to think. He didn't know the sign for walk and in his attempt to guess ended up using the P sign and wiggling the down pointed fingers like they were legs <you, I>

    "What's the sign for stroll?"
    <How sign S T R O L L?>

    He laughed at her joke. "I guess it's as good a time as any. How does tense work? I know past tense and future but not any others."
    <Good day know. How T E N S E know? Know sign n the past. Know sign in the future. No today>


    "Why don't you just change your name?" he asked with a curious look.
    <Why no C H A N G E name?>

    "Recently got a new name myself. Andrew. You could too," then again, Ram knew stability could also be important "if you wanted."
    <In the past take name me. A. You 2.>

    Hmm this would be hard.
    "Give me a minute to finish my cocoa first then, it will be hard to sign and carry it." Making sure to not drink to fast but finishing it of relatively quickly. "There now we can go."

    Like before showing him how to make the sign, along with showing it to him in various ways making sure to explain the difference between them all. For example walk, stroll, jog.

    Was that so funny? She hadn't really joked but he seemed to like it so why not.
    "Hmm this will be quite a long reply so stop and watch me carefully so that you will really have a chance to follow."

    Ohh this would be a lot.
    "First of we have present tense which is easy just sign close to your body."

    "Next we have past tense which is a bit harder to do. What you need to do is to sign the mark for finish first which means that this have already happened, it can be done last in the sentence as well but first is more common. You can also say the word fish whilst signing finish but whilst it can be polite so is it not always needed." No reason to say it around deaf people.

    "In order to get to future so do you instead sign Will at the beginning of the sentence to show that it will happen, additionally so the further away from your body you sign the more it indicates farther into the future. Which is part of why it's important to normally sign quite close to the body."

    Looking him over.
    "Did I explain that well enough?" She had never thought the language before, some signs yes but not more than that.

    Giving him a half sad half complex look.
    "Well it's my name, I made it like that so to change it would be to change it would be to change a part of me. It would be to give up a piece of who I am, no my name is my name and I see no desire to change it. That is my name, I made it for myself and it is mine. No matter that I do not see things the same way now as I did then I still made it my name. Same with my given name, that is me and I will never give it up on a more permanent basis." To use an alias for a brief time fine but never give it up.

    “Close to the body,” he said.
    <Close to body> He repeated her signs to confirm.

    It made sense. He’d read somewhere about parents and children basically making up their own sign languages. That ASL was sort of an amalgamation of those. It sort of made sense that it was still so close to the roots of meaning, having been standardized only recently.

    He nodded. Her sign from what he had been using but still had the slightly upward and backward motion. The same was true with ‘will’. Though apparently, he’d been doing it on the wrong side of his sentences.

    “So not like E D endings,” he replied.
    <No E D>

    “I mean, I’ll probably forget,”
    he said with a smile “But you explained well"
    <Will not know tomorrow. Finish teach good you>

    He again nodded at her explanation. He supposed it was different for those that remembered their names. Something of their past the Good Folk hadn’t tainted. Ram’s smile faltered slightly, it wasn’t so much memory, but he knew whatever name he had had, it had been soiled by things even before the Battlefield. The Render could feel the anger there. Buried deep. In many ways it burned even hotter than the rage he held for the Fair Folk. Yet, Yamoiyo didn’t need to be exposed to it. She had suffered enough. They had all suffered enough.

    The grin returned.

    “So, the staff room usually has hot water and tea,” he said before realizing he’d made a mistake <Sorry. S T A F F R O O M T E A made will> It wasn’t his best sentence structure. Still had to work on that.

    A confirming nod.
    "For when you normally speak in the present yes, that will be your primary." Looking over his arms for a brief moment. "No need to go overboard on length away though, just find a way that feels comfortable for you. There is no set limit for how far away to have your arms and people does tend to say dates anyway."

    Shaking her head.
    "No they opted for the word finish instead, as said you can add in saying the word fish but depending on situation so will that not always be optimal. Likewise so can you place these signs at the end of a sentence. However the common aspect is at the start which will make it easier. It will also be better for when you're talking with people that needs some time to translate it in their minds, to change things up there might just make it hard for them to keep up."

    Looking a little happy.
    "I have never really thought it to others that much before, some simple signs and some signs between brief friendships yes but not as in someone wanting to learn the language." Various small ones with various former partners though but that was not the same.

    "It might sound a bit weird for me it's just that my mother gave me two gifts in this life one was my life and the other my first name. Those are the only things I know that she gave me so I am not really fond of letting it go." Softly chuckling, she had been more than happy to get rid of her surname though.

    "Ohh? I have actually never seen it, never really worked here so I have only been to the needed rooms." Letting her eyes fly around a bit, he most likely knew which areas she were referring to if for nothing else cause he had seen her there. Then again she had never seen him in the tavern. "Do you enjoy working here?"
