    Shanty of the Sea, or "The Shanty", as the locals commonly shortened it to, was a tavern and restaurant nestled at the heart of Blue Maiden. This wasn't exactly your normal, run-of-the-mill tavern, however. Oh no, because the thing about the Shanty was that it was an old boat. No one throughout the whole Swamp was able to say exactly how the boat had gotten where it did, or for how long that it had been there. The most prevalent story was that sometime long, long ago, some sailors, whether explorers or perhaps even pirates, had gotten a little bit too adventurous. Seeking either treasure or glory, they had foolishly taken their vessel from the sea where it belonged and had ventured down the waterways of Midoro Swamp. They soon found themselves having bitten off more than they could chew and found themselves unable to maneuver the boat, eventually becoming stuck between a few trees and sitting in a shallow pool of water where the bottom touched.

    It was still a mystery of what had happened to the people manning the watercraft, though their bodies were likely part of the surrounding earth. Years later, as the settlement of Blue Maiden was built up, inhabitants decided to make use of the abandoned ship, since it couldn't be moved out of the way. An old lizalfos merchant claimed ownership of it and cleared it out, setting up shop inside. He began to peddle his wares out of it and was able to make decent money from the growing town population. One day, he also began to sell alcohol that he was able to acquire, and then business really took off. Blue Maiden kept growing, and through the years, the lizalfos merchant passed his business down through the family.

    To that current day, Shanty of the Sea, keeping the original name of the boat that was sprawled across its bow, was still owned by a descendant of that original lizalfos. The business had seamlessly transitioned into a full on tavern, serving any kind of booze that one could desire, as well as a limited food menu. It wasn't a large boat, it had two levels total. The lower deck was the main hub, there was a hole in the ship that opened up to this deck and was the entrance for the tavern. It was made accessible by a suspect wooden bridge that had been built over the small distance of water to land. Once you stepped inside, there were many improvised seating areas. Tables and chairs were made out of whatever had been available, anything and everything from wooden crates to large rocks to well constructed actual tables. Then in the stern of the ship was the bar, where the cargo hold likely was, which made great use of the all the storage shelves that where there. There was a small counter set up with a few stools. There was a ladder by the bar that you could climb and get onto the upper deck, where there was some outside seating and another small bar.

    ------------------------------------------

    Zain stepped inside the Shanty, having been referred there by almost all of the town's inhabitants that he had come across. Apparently, this was one of the most popular and busiest places in Blue Maiden. These claims were confirmed when the sight of people everywhere met the Twili's eyes. It would surely be difficult to even find a seat. Everywhere you looked there were people eating, drinking, and laughing. Zain began to make his way through the crowd, every step on the old and worn wood creaking loudly. There were even the occasional puddles of swamp water leaking through the floors where the wood had been broken. The Warden pressed on toward the back of the boat and managed to find an open stool at the bar. He sat himself down and ordered an exotic rum when the bartender came over. Soon he was sipping on this drink and had turned around in his stool, curiously watching all the people before him.

    "Can someone get this man some clean water?!"

    The shout came up over the noises of the hustle and bustle of the tavern's crowd. Forcing his way in and around people, a Zora entered with a very disheveled looking Twili under an arm. Half dragging, half carrying the man, the Zora shoved him into an empty corner. "I will be right back," he said, "Do not get up. You're hurt. I'm going to get you something to drink. Then we'll get you cleaned up."

    Dazed, only half paying attention, Bryar lifted his head to watch the Zora disappear further into the boat, towards what was probably the "kitchen" of this place. Curiously looking around, the Twili took in where he was. He was seated next to a bar full of people, actually more behind the bar and on the floor and out of the way where people wouldn't step on him. He was on a crate that was probably full of kitchen supplies or food. It took another beat to actually take in that he was on a boat now in the swamp and there were people here!

    Someone saved you.


    "Who.. said that?"
    he asked aloud, tongue barely functioning. He wasn't himself. He was still hearing voices that weren't there and could barely focus on anything. What had been pain was now just numb and hardly able to move. He took another look around with unfocused eyes. Someone found him and brought him in here? Last he remembered, he stumbled into a settlement of some kind and collapsed. That Zora... he must have seen and come to help me.

    The Zora in question soon returned with a glass of water. Pressing it to Bryar's lips, he gave instructions to drink slowly that were followed with difficulty because Bryar was barely able to pay attention. "How did you get here?" he asked then, studying the Twili. Bryar supposed he wasn't used to seeing a Twili. No one was, it seemed.

    "I don't... remember.."
    he managed, "Woke up in the swamp.. Can't remember anything.."

    "Does anyone here know this man?"
    the Zora shouted, calling out loudly so that everyone could hear unless they were seriously that plastered.

    With hopeful eyes, Bryar looked up and gazed around the room. Trying hard to get to his feet, He leaned against the bar and briefly caught the eyes of the tender behind it, looking a little unhappy at such a filthy sight daring to touch his bar. There was... a Lizalfos. The thief cringed, somewhat wishing he could run.

    Zain was about halfway through his mug of rum, still enjoying the views, when he heard a commotion start. Something more than just the normal loudness that resonated through the building, that was. Someone was audibly yelling something about water, from what he could make out. Soon his eyes were met with the sight of the source of the sound. A Zora was carrying a man through the crowded tavern, who appeared to be in pretty bad shape. What had happened? It didn't take long for the Zora to make its way across the building, ending near the bar. Zain, immediately interested, placed his drink down on the counter and rose from his seat. He slowly stepped towards the man that lay on the ground. Most of the Shanty had went back about their own business, but a few spectators had been drawn in to try and see what was going on. Zain nudged his way past these people to get a good look, and...

    That was another Twili. That was certainly a surprise. Twili were not exactly the most common of races. It was rare to see one, and rarer still to see one outside of the Enclave. Save for Zain and his group at Sanctum now, of course. But that made this all the more intriguing. Who was this one? Did Zain know him? He had grown up in the Enclave and only recently left, so he knew most of the Twili there. The Warden stepped closer as the Zora returned and exchanged words with the man. He had all the trademark characteristics of the Twili race. His hair, his skin, the runes. But Zain did not recognize him. The stranger spoke, and apparently he.. didn't remember what had happened to him. What in the world was going on here? Zain had to know more. Thinking quickly on his feet, he answered the Zora's question.

    "I do, I know him.. he is my friend." Zain stepped one more time toward the Zora and the man that was now using the bar to support himself. As he did so, he removed his hood, fully revealing his own orange hair and runes glowing on his face. The Warden feigned an expression of concern, fully committing to his bluff. "We had been traveling through the Swamp together and got separated.. I- oh my, you are hurt." Zain eyed the stranger's head, before extending a hand. "Come, friend, let's get you taken care of."

    The helpful Zora turned his head, fishy eyes studying the newcomer who claimed to be a friend. Like this poor injured man, he was also obviously one of those twilit folks. Rare as they were, he (and probably most people who saw one) suspected they all must know one another closely. There just didn't seem to be enough Twili around to not think they must have been part of the same family or community. It may not have been what everyone thought, but the Zora did for sure.

    Stepping aside and out of the way, he explained, "I found this man collapsed just inside Blue Maiden. I saw him stumble from the swamp. Whatever someone would be doing in there is beyond me. Nothing good can come out of venturing into those boglands. There's all kinds of creatures in there and dangers for anyone who doesn't know how to traverse it right. Just think about the parasites and the diseases. Young folk like this who know nothing shouldn't be just gallivanting through swamps." It seemed like almost a lecture at this point. Bryar was lucky not to be paying attention or putting nay focus at all on the Zora.

    His eyes were on the Twili that spoke up, calling him a friend. Were they friends? Bryar honestly couldn't remember. Things were so hazy and recent events were all but completely gone. Everything was a blur. It was entirely possible these two were friends or had met recently and he could not remember. It was really the only lead he had, so he clung to it.

    "You.. You know me!"
    he exclaimed, unable to hide his relief that someone had come to collect him. Someone could help him and get him out of here. Not that he wasn't grateful to the Zora who dragged him to this tavern, it was just that the Zora in question didn't know him and was only able to help his as far as getting him on his feet.

    He took the extended hand readily as the other explained. "He's suffered some kind of head injury as far as I can tell. There was dried blood all across his scalp. I'm no doctor, but it must have caused some kind of amnesia as he told me he couldn't remember anything."

    "Thank you,"
    Bryar said slowly, trying to regain some wits about him. "Where are we... going to go?"

    Zain, partly annoyed and partly amused by the time he was done, allowed the Zora to go through his rant about the dangers of the swamp.That seemingly came out of nowhere. Talk about a concerned citizen. It reflected well on the Zora though, ultimately, Zain figured. He appeared a genuinely good man, having helped someone out like this and then also making such a big deal of how it came to be. A second of silence fell between words before the Warden addressed the fish man's concerns. "Yes, you are absolutely correct, sir. You see, we were traveling together, as I said.. headed here, actually. But I suppose it's quite obvious we are not locals, in fact we don't know the area at all, it is our first time here. We took one too many wrong turns and even foolishly were split up. I was fortunate enough to find the town and wait for my friend, though he seems to have only found trouble."

    Zain nodded happily at the other Twili, a sly smirk spreading across his face. He even offered a small chuckle. "Yes! Of course I know you, my friend." The Warden licked his lips as he felt the other's hand and the Zora confirmed that the man could not remember anything. Wonderful, it couldn't get any more perfect. There was a blank slate to write upon. Zain nodded again and effectively answered both the Zora and the Twili with his next statement, "We are going to get you fixed up immediately. Come, it will all be alright." Zain paid his tab at the bar and gave a last look to the Zora. "Thank you, friend, for being a kind soul and helping us. Who knows what would have happened if not for you. We are in your debt. If ever our paths should cross again and you need anything, you can call on us." With that, the Warden led the other Twili out of the building.

    An hour or two passed and the pair found themselves in the Shanty once again, this time sitting at a private table in the corner. Zain had taken the other to a local clinic in the town and gotten his injured head cleaned and patched up as needed. He had paid the bill for this for his new friend, and was also now offering a meal and drink. "After all, I know you must be starving and you could stand to get some fluids in you. There's no telling how long you were out." The duo ordered and while they waiting on their food, Zain studied the other carefully. He needed to know more about this man, but also needed to appear as if he already knew plenty about him, if he were keeping up the act of previously knowing each other. The memory loss could be a convenient work-around for that, though. "Tell me friend, do you remember your name? Do you remember our purpose in Blue Maiden?" Basic questions that would hopefully come across as merely testing the injured memory.

    Bryar stared up at his apparent friend, a weak smile on his face. Thought his mind was in a haze and his memories a muddled mess, he was so grateful someone had come to claim him. The only clue in his head he could picture was a woman's face that had.. come here? Met him here? No, maybe met him somewhere else. He didn't know her though, not a name, not anything. Only a face.From that face though, he could only deduce she wasn't a Zora or a Lizalfos, so maybe she wasn't from around this swampy wasteland. Hopefully it would become clearer in time.

    As the Zora went on, he spoke up. "Thank you.. for bringing me here. I am glad that.. that someone cared enough not to leave me." The Zora only nodded in response and then went off on some tangent about his safety that Bryar barely heard. With his mind going in and out, flickering rather like a candle, he could only hear bits and pieces of long winded talk.

    Rising shakily to his feet, he followed after his fellow Twili. It sure would be nice not to be filthy and wet anymore, were his thoughts on the matter. He wanted to waste no time in getting freshened up and to make sure he didn't have any major injuries he was not aware. His luck held out with a minor slash to the head. Though the wound had stopped bleeding, it was bandaged regardless to stave off infection of dirt getting into a still open wound. The lasting damage, however, could not be certain. At this point, it was truly impossible to tell if there were to be any serious brain damage. Amnesia aside, all else seemed fine int he way of motor control and function. He'd even begun to walk a little better by the time they had returned to the tavern.

    Seated at their table, finally able to relax and get something to eat, Bryar began mulling over everything, trying his best to remember. "Bryar," he started, then added his full name to be sure he still knew it, "Bryar... Blackthorn. I remember my name.. and my family. I remember being in Hyrule... I've been here... for a long time. I don't really... remember home much. There was a woman. I think?" He sighed, struggling to remember more recent events. It hurt a great deal, the strain giving him a light headache. "I'm sorry. I don't know why I'm... why we're here." he looked at the other with his most sympathetic face possible, "I don't remember you. Who... Who are you?"

    "Very good, Bryar." Zain grinned as he offered encouragement. The man had stumbled a bit on his words, suggesting that it would indeed be a difficult time remembering. Bryar Blackthorn. An interesting name on the surface level. Unfortunately though, Zain did not recognize it, not the first name or the family name. He had been holding out hope that there was a possibility he knew Bryar or his family from the Envclave. There was no such luck to be had, though, so now the Warden faced an odd situation and complex decision. Zain had been hoping that some knowledge of Bryar, no matter how limited, would have come up. Then he would have been able to work with it and turn it into something. But now, it was clear to Zain that he did not know the first thing about the other Twili, besides his name, even though he had claimed that they were good friends. So how long could he keep the act up? Was it worth keeping up? Was it right to keep it up?

    Zain was playing a very dangerous game at that point. Was it right to play around with someone's memory? What sort of consequences might be suffered? For both parties involved, at that. With Bryar remembering his name and family, it must have been some sort of short term memory loss. But to what extent? What happened if Zain filled Bryar's mind with false memories and then he remembered the truth? But then Zain was already into a story, so how did he back out now without revealing lies? It was a very tricky and sensitive situation that he had gotten himself into. The Warden forced himself out of his thoughts and made eye contact with Bryar as his identity came into question. Zain, looking slightly offended that this man who didn't actually know him couldn't remember his name, raised an eyebrow and replied. "Zain! Zain Binatair, your friend. My, my, Bryar, it seems you received quite the hit on the head.."

    The pair's food and drinks arrived and Zain got a spoonful of his stew, blowing at it. As he waited for it, he spoke slowly and carefully tiptoed around his next words. Bryar remembered a woman, but couldn't remember anything past that as to why he had been in the Swamp. Zain figured he was supposed to provide an answer as the other Twili looked at him. "Well, I'm not sure what woman you are speaking of, perhaps you met someone after we split up. We were on our way here to Blue Maiden to conduct some business and ended up getting ourselves lost in the thick of the marsh. Both of our first times here, after all! We foolishly decided to split up for a few minutes to try and find the path again... and well, I somehow stumbled into town here, while you had more of a rough go of it, apparently." Zain glanced to Bryar's head and then back to his face, studying carefully. He hoped he had kept things vague enough while simultaneously offering enough of an explanation. He was sure Bryar would have more questions, though. Zain downed the spoon of stew he was holding as he awaited the inevitable inquiries.

    "Zain." He repeated the name back once, twice, a few times, testing how it felt on his tongue. "Zain... Zain Binatair... Hmmm.." While the name didn't sound familiar to him in the slightest, hardly anything did right now. In his state of confusion, anything could seem right or wrong. He had to trust both himself in believing that he'd heal and get his memories back soon, as well as trusting his friend here who would care for him and help that healing process along.

    "I'm not sure if I remember it,"
    he answered honestly, "I suppose it could sound familiar." Curses! It was just so hard to remember anything! Why would nothing come to him? "I wish I knew what happened to me. Was it an accident? Or did something attack me? I just.. woke up in the swamp and there was no one else around. If I had hit my head on accident... wouldn't there have been... evidence of that?" If he was bleeding, there would have been blood on a tree or a rock or the ground or whatever he hit his head on, right? Though... could simply falling and hitting one's head cause so much damage? Coming to a conclusion, he said, "I think I must have been attacked. It didn't... look like there were signs of a fight so I... guess I was dragged away and left there?"

    He groaned, his headache getting worse by the minute. "I wonder what... I did though to get... attacked like that?" A thought crossed his mind and he gasped, "Oh! But I'm glad... I'm glad that you're okay. Whatever had... attacked me in there didn't find you. That's good." He quietly wondered if there were monsters in the swamp or if it was something far more normal and easier explained. "Maybe... it was her. The woman." Maybe she was the one who attacked him. She could have been some kind of robber or local after his valuables perhaps. It was an idea, but he didn't know if it was true or not. "Maybe she attacked me for... money... I don't know."

    Talking was beginning to make his head throb so he took a short break to try some food. His stomach growled in response and he briefly wondered just how long he had been out there alone and harmed. He smiled as he ate, grateful for the meal. It was fantastic! It felt like he hadn't eaten in months and this was his first good meal after all that time. "This is really good. Thank you."

    An amused smile appeared across Zain's face as Bryar played with the sound of his name. Would he realize that he had in fact never heard this name before? Seemingly no, as he admitted to not remembering it, but relented that it was possible he could. The Warden cocked his head to the side a bit and blinked as he gave the floor to Bryar, who took a few minutes pondering over what had happened to him in the Swamp. Zain managed to work his way through about half of his bowl of stew and had started taking a sip of his drink as he registered Bryar thanking him. The rum sliding down his throat, Zain nodded and gave a dismissing wave of the hand. "Of course! No need to thank me, my dear Bryar. I can't imagine how starving you must have been. Goddesses know how long you were incapacitated out there. But all that matters is that you're safe now, and that we found each other again." Zain offered another smile, then helped himself to another big spoon of stew.

    At this point, the Warden began replaying the words of the other Twili over in his head, fully processing them. Half as a reply, half as thinking outloud, he began to speak. "A woman.. you seem pretty sure of that much, it seems, but there still remain many blanks that need to be filled." Bryar had deduced that he must have been involved in some sort of fight. "So we can assume this woman, whoever she may be, was involved somehow. Was it she that attacked you? Perhaps.. The Swamp is certainly home to many creatures and unsavory types, so we could be looking at a whole host of suspects. It could have been someone as simple as a wandering rogue, or it could have been something much... darker." Zain paused for a moment, briefly looking past Bryar at nothing in particular. He blinked and made eye contact with his fellow Twili again. Bryar wondered why someone would have attacked him. "Why.. money.. That's a good question. Are you missing anything, my friend? Have you had anything taken?" It was probably a safe assumption that Bryar had been relieved of any possessions, but maybe not.

    Zain finished up the rest of his dinner and sat back in his seat, thinking quietly for a few moments. What was his next step here? He wasn't planning on staying in Blue Maiden much longer, but he couldn't just up and leave this man with no memory who was convinced that Zain was a close friend and was the only person he "knew" at that moment. Could he? What he was doing may not have been right, but it had been done and now Zain was in. It would be even worse of him to abandon Bryar at that point. "Well, you were absent for it, but our business here in town is finished. I say considering everything, you are ready to get out of the Swamps. I say we leave shortly. Would you feel up to that?"

    "Uhmm... Well, no.." Bryar began, answering whether he had anything taken. "I checked my pockets when I woke to see if I could find any clues about myself. I found some rupees and.. well and this stuff." Digging into his pockets, he showed one of the knives and a small handful of the trinkets. Specifically what he grabbed was a ruby pendant, a ring and a gold colored bracelet. It made it less likely that he was targeted by robbers or other bandits. In fact, it was a thought that crossed his mind that maybe he was the robber to have wound up with such shiny jewelry. Maybe he robbed someone and they took revenge on him, knocking him out and leaving him for dead in the swamp.

    Thinking about this, he decided to ask, "Do you think I stole this stuff from someone and they attacked me for it?" Absently, he twirled the knife around expertly in his hand, his skill apparently not hindered in the slightest by the injury and his memory troubles. Instinct, it seemed, was still there and not as easy to dismiss. If anything, he remembered perfectly his skills both with a blade and with his magic. He was lucky not to have forgotten that. If he were to get attacked again, this time at least he could try and defend himself. His head still hurt, but he was much more aware than he was before.

    "It makes me kind of excited to hear you offer leaving. Not to sound rude or anything but... this place isn't exactly for me. It's... well it's dirty and... confusing. And I... I would be so happy to leave."
    He tried some of his food, smiling. "I wish I could remember what our business here was, but I sure hope it went well. If there's... anything I needed to do, maybe you could remind me of it. Or you could tell me where we're going next?" Hopefully wherever they were going, it was somewhere much cleaner than here.

    Zain's eyes twinkled as they saw the items Bryar held, his interest fully piqued now. What was he doing with objects such as those? There was yet another question that might possibly never be answered, all depending on Bryar recollecting his memories. Zain was teetering on the verge of wishing to try and help him remember now, even if that meant that the Warden would likely be ousted and caught in his lie. It was just all so very curious. Who exactly was this man and what had happened to him? The mystery had to be solved. Zain, still eyeing the treasures, thought out loud as a question was posed to him.

    "Well, I suppose it is possible.." he mused in response to Bryar having stolen the items. After all, he knew nothing about the other Twili. How could he say whether he was a thief or not? "Though if you did steal them and you were attacked in retaliation, surely your assailant would have taken their possessions back, no?" Zain scanned Bryar's face, trying to decide if he thought the man capable of criminal activity or not. After a few seconds, he came to a conclusion, convincing himself with his own reasoning. "No, of course you didn't steal them!" No sooner than that, Bryar began maneuvering a small blade around in his hands, showing obvious weapon proficiency. That was certainly interesting. Maybe he was a thief.. or maybe he just knew how to protect himself..

    Zain procured some rupees and set them on the table for payment of the two Twilis' meals, before addressing his new friend's concerns. "Do not worry, you have been through so much today! I took care of our business by myself, it was really no problem. That's what friends are for, right?" Not giving that specific question too much time to permeate, the Warden quickly continued, "But let us leave all these misfortunes behind. On we go to better things. We are headed to Hera." With that, Zain stood up and beckoned for Bryar to follow, then made his way out of the Shanty.

    His friend made another excellent point. If Bryar had stolen personal possessions and their true owner had come after him to retrieve them, why beat him up and dump him in the swamp... but not take the goods back that they had worked so hard to attack him over? It made no sense and he felt a little stupid for even suggesting it in the first place. He blamed it on his head and his injuries that he wasn't fully thinking through ideas before blabbing them out loud all over the place like this to his friend not friend that he was still trying too hard to remember.

    In a hurried manner, he finished as much of his food as he could while rupees were offered in pay. He briefly regarded the rupees and thought about offering his own to the pile to help, but then hesitated for some reason. There'd be time soon enough to repay his dear friend for everything he'd done. Hopefully along with that time, he would also regain some memories and some knowledge of their time together. He could only pray right now.

    "Hera,"
    he repeated once he had finished cleaning his plate spotless. "That sure sounds like a plan. Really uhmm... whatever gets us out of this swamp sounds like a good plan." He didn't want to whine about the smell or the humidity or the filth, but all three in perfect combination were driving him crazy. This place was, for lack of a more elegant word, gross. The swamp in general, that was. The shanty in itself was completely fine for what it was. Though what it was... was rather dingy. He rose from his seat and followed after Zain, gleefully making comments all the way out the door as he walked. "I think I may have been to Hera before, but if I have I don't remember it much. I hope it's peaceful and clean though. And I really hope I can remember some more things before we get there, too.."
