Datahook privileges are convenient.

She's on the bed of her cell, indulging in such, when magic impacts her awareness. 

Taking such input apart quickly and in between moments is not a skill she has lost. It is not her keepers' magic. There is a lot of it, in terms of strength and concentration if not distribution. There is nothing she is going to be able to do about it.

She imprints a message - possible cataclysmic remnant, and the feeling of it. 

And then it takes her.

 

When it finishes she is elsewhere.

She shields automatically (that is also not a skill she has lost, if not one she would have been able to use previously). Snaps out magical senses and makes use of physical ones.

There's a rather surprised woman - perhaps in her late twenties - standing a bit before her. She's in what probably used to be a forest, that has since burned down and is only now starting to grow back. The ground curves a bit oddly, and there's a deep gash through the hill a few hundred feet to her right. 

The strange woman has her hand on a sword. "Who are you?" she questions sharply. "How did you get here?"

Permalink

She broadens and reinforces shields, in as much as she currently can. Does not take a fighting stance, but takes one that can easily be turned into one at need. Does the work for translation.

(Once she is returned, she may need to submit something complementary about Reynan mage imprisonment standards.)

"I apologize, might you repeat that? I was not able to understand you the first time."

Permalink

"Who are you and how did you get here?"

Permalink

She directs some awareness more particularly. Is the woman a mage (or, at any rate, a mage and not hiding it well enough for her to not detect)? What kind of magic properties does the sword have, if any?

The language she does not recognize.

"What form of identification are you looking for, exactly? And, I'm not entirely certain, at the moment - would you happen to be willing to tell me where 'here' might be? That might somewhat help me determine."

 

Permalink

She isn't a mage - but she isn't not a mage, either. There's something especially odd about her life-force. The sword isn't quite magical, but - it's like it could be magical.

"Your name and clan is enough. This is what used to be the Land of Fire, near the capital of Kakyo."

Permalink

Magical senses to the world are also reading - unusually.

She considers whether to answer according to her actual considerations. But if they had an existing undesirable policy for interdimentional appearances, the woman is likely to have reacted differently. And she is not particularly likely to be able to effectively pretend to be something else.

"At the moment, I suspect I've been transported between dimensions. Is the country Reyna familiar to you? 

I do not have a clan."

 

Permalink

"Not in the slightest, though things have gotten - more international, of late. Have you heard of Kaguya?"

Permalink

"I have not."

Permalink

"Then you're definitely not from this dimension. She's - the reason I'm hesitant to try to just send you straight back, there's a large risk that if I did she'd notice and attack your dimension."

Permalink

"Yes, that is definitely not familiar. And that sounds like an undesirable outcome. Can you generally send people between dimensions?

Permalink

"...It's a slightly experimental ability, and more of an 'opening portals' thing, but Kaguya knows when and where I've done it, and she's faster than me."

Permalink

"Ah, that was not a request - I'm sure my dimension will figure out how to follow me and do so, at some point, and I was not in the middle of anything particularly urgent. Only interest. Are you in contact with other dimensions?"

Permalink

"No. Haven't had the time - it's just me on our side with the ability to move around, though I think the Uzumaki clan could figure something out if I died. I've been to other, empty dimensions, though, if that counts."

Permalink

"It continues to be interesting. In the dimension I am from we do not generally have that as an available capacity."

Permalink

"Wasn't available here until - very recently." She tilts her head as if listening to something, then nods. "C'mon, it's not entirely safe here, let's get moving. How fast can you go?"

Permalink

This sounds like it would be a story, though not one to ask about at the moment.

She checks her current constraints. She can teleport within visual distance, with time spacing. Well, not particularly surprising.

"Shall I run?"

Permalink

"Sure. I'll keep up."

Permalink

"Would it be helpful to have more concealment?"

She can't do full invisibility but she can do some.

Permalink

"Probably not so much if Zetsu, Kaguya's little spy, has already noticed us. How does your concealment work?"

Permalink

"The form I was thinking of bends light-rays around the target. I can't currently do it in full but I can do considerably lowered visibility. If it would help at all I can also do that and then teleport us within my visual distance. I can consider others, if that method specifically is less useful in this case."

Permalink

She considers this for a few moments. "Zetsu doesn't track by sight," she says after a bit, "Though that might help against other humans. How often and how quickly can you use your teleport?"

Permalink

"Do you know what it is they track by?" Concealment wards are unlikely to work well at the moment, but the information is useful nonetheless. "I am somewhat restricted at the moment. In general the main limitation is distance - one can only go so far, and one cannot avoid that by sequencing multiple teleports rather than one. I am not certain what exactly the current time restrictions are."

Permalink

"Sensing chakra, I think. Hm... I think just running there would be better for now, there's not really any good sight-lines."

Permalink

"Chakra?"

She waits for an indication of which way to go.

Permalink

She starts walking. "It's - life force. What you use for techniques... Might be different in your world, though."
