Ark and Aesti have an… unusual working relationship. They were teamed up in an underground fight club; neither had ever met the other before their first match. The construct immediately bonded with the artificer, protecting him against every opponent they faced. Eventually, they earned enough money for Ark to buy Aesti outright, and the pair have traveled together ever since. Dimetrius, having discovered some as-yet-unnamed problems back in Athisaar, has recalled Illianna to help with the situation and hired Ark to assist the party in Tsar in her stead. Ark isn’t sure he trusts Dimetrius, or these new allies, but he recognizes strength in numbers, and is willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
