    It was always strange was it not? Being aware of things but not being able to feel. Redcliffe had this dilemma right now, looking down at the creature who he was trying to shush. To him, everything felt the same, a presence but no texture or warmth. Even how fragile it was could be hard to tell. And his bone hands were careful as the stalfos lay a hand on the child's shoulder. "Calm down now. Everything will be okay." He said to the crying child, who only stopped for a second to look at the glowing yellow eyes in his socket, and then cried harder. "Why do children have to cry?" He muttered aloud, if only so as to have something different in his hearing. Looking about, he saw nobody yet, an empty side street still the only viewer to their ordeal.

    As easy as it would have been to leave, to take the safe option, and yet Redcliffe had his fault of pride. Even if the little hylian was absolutely terrified of him, there was no way he could leave him be. Or her. The stalfos had lost the ability to discern genders unless it was exceedingly obvious during his time as an undead. "Let's take you home little miss or sir." He said, lifting the child up under their arms to carry him or her onto the main street to look for help.

    Snd wouldn't you know it? The child quickly found help. By the way of a pair of Rauru temple priests, both of whom assumed the worst and immediately called for the guards. Redcliffe just stood there, letting the kid go, not inviting any reactions of violence. And still a spear was shoved in his face. And then another. And then a sword. "Ca-calm down please. I was just looking for..." he clattered.

    "Silence criminal! You are being arrested on charges of kidnapping!" One hylian guard shouted. Not really liking where this was going, Redcliffe was forced to comply. If only so that he would stay alive for the next few hours. Was that all the time he had left? Judt a couple decades into his unlife and already it was going to be abruptly ended? Shame. Not that Redcliffe had any qualms with that. His self preservation instincts had gone out the window when he realized he was already dead.

    Horrible stroke of luck maybe, but to the fickle gods, a mere lapse to make way for the greater opportunity..or perhaps just a way to make one even more miserable. Who knows?
    Whatever the case, the town was quickly alerted, not just the kidnapping, oh no, that was much earlier. Children stolen away in the dark of night like the stories mothers told their children to keep them in line. Though good behavior hardly accounted for who gets taken away and who doesn't.

    Boots gently clacked against the gritty stone of the jailhouse, the songstress' curiosity was piqued by the news of a Stalfos being brought into custody for heinous charges. Although her rank within the Order was relatively low, where she was comfortable, mind you, it still allowed some perks.

    "Right this way, in this cell," The guard's voice could be heard as the lady was led in.
    Golden eyes peered into holding pen silently before they turned slightly, a curious tilt of her head.

    "I don't recall Stals being known for kidnapping. I'd like to hear what you have to say for yourself," her voice carried gently in defiance to the dreary prison they stood in.
