    Tane had to wonder if it was normal attitude for this boy to just run off and talk to every stranger he had met. Tane did not have children, nor did he spend much time with them, but he recalled a time back in his youth where all the adults discouraged against such things and used words like 'Talking to strangers is bad' and 'Don't accept food given to you by strange people'. It was not his place to bring up such schooling though. Maybe they learned differently these days, or, alternatively, maybe it was just Zeid's nature to be so polite and welcoming. Apparent child of royalty, maybe it was bred into his being to be greeting the people like this. Tane had no idea. Tane also didn't care. What did it bother to talk to strangers anyway? He wasn't in charge of this operation. He was only the hired brains.

    "Indeed seems the case. Everyone's got someone to find,"
    he remarked absently, giving a nod towards Dante. Zeid was looking for his mother, Rachel had been looking for news on Zen, and this newcomer was looking for a child. It just went full circle here. Tane was looking for no one on his own though, just his own ego and fame. "We ought to start a lost and found."

    They'd come out here and found this fellow and quite honestly, Tane didn't know what to say. He didn't wish to divulge into the details of their quest if it wasn't his place. This man was offering to help? Were they going to allow that? Were they going to give their secret mission away to just any and every man, woman, or child that 'offered to help'? He met eyes with Dante curiously, the question lingering in his gaze. He could be good and hold his tongue, keep secrets, and only speak about what he was allowed to speak about. So professional.

    Unable to answer, he could only shrug and comment on this 'goddess healer whatever' business this fellow appeared to be a part of. "Came a bit late. I've already been healed." Whether he meant his physical injuries from the previous night's arena fight or some measure of sarcasm about spiritual healing though was anyone's guess. "Pleasure to meet you though. Tane Kooper. I'm a detective around these parts. Helping out this pair with their missing person's case." Now that wasn't giving anything away as it had already been said the boy was looking for his mother. He offered a hand, "Finding what's hidden is something of a specialty. And speaking of-" He drew his eyes back to Zeid, "I think I can answer your question. Got something we wanted your input on." And he left it at that.

    Dante shifted his focus to Ruarc and narrowed. He spoke of being a servant but how much detail he gave was still cause for some worry. People followed the goddesses to a point of no return hence and point, the Order. But, still they had more info than this man was handing out. Either he was being extremely careful or he was actually honest with no actual info to be given. "Blindly following where you are told to go. I've seen worse." Zeid was looking between them all. A child watching adults act strangely and not quite grasping the concept as of why. "I doubt any of us have the time or will to start such a place, but it could prove valuable." He'd offer a gentle laugh at the idea.

    It appeared he was not the only one being rather skeptical about Ruarc. Tane was most likely doing his detective thing and studying the man whilst they talked. Although, what the Ace would find would have to be asked later. When they were out of ear shot.

    Rather the conversation shifted enough that Zeid was looking at Tane with eager attention. "Of course, though I assume you want to ask me in private."

    "One thing at a time though." Dante tilted his head indicating that of their large hylian person standing there. "I'm sure you can understand our cryptic responses Ruarc and this whole situation. Whilst I am not normally the one to turn away help our current predicament is a little more sensitive than most would even understand. I'd like to figure out this situation as best as we can though it is clear neither side can give too much info to the other. Which of course puts us in a very awkward place." He gave Tane a side look. Ruarc was evidently the sort who was made to be a powerhouse. But if the timing had to come down where Dante and Tane had to make a choice, he was almost sure they could handle it. Although that could be a bluff.

    "Instead of wasting each of our time and trying to hint at what can't be said in public, I suppose I ought to ask the burning question." Red orbs thinned again. "I'll be blunt in hopes to expedite this. You are looking for a kid, do you personally believe that Zeid is the one you were looking for? I doubt you go around trying to make friends with kids in the first place. If we can establish what you believe of the current moment, I am sure we can come together in a logical response to deal with the remainder of this as adults." He just hoped Tane had a gift for being able to sense or read if someone was lying or not. "I'll keep on the side of skeptical and let Tane be the one to see if you are to be believed in your words or not. Naturally I have the idea of keeping Zeid safe as his current guardian and employer."

    As it became apparent that Ruarc had to think about what Dante was bringing up, the boy turned to face the detective. Sizing him up as his lips quirked into a half smirk. There wouldn't be any better time than now to perhaps talk about what Mr. Kooper had been thinking about. After all he did said he had a few things he wanted to run by Zeid. Even if it was evident that he didn't want to say them in front of the large silent man.

    "Since Dante is currently busy;" A brush of his thumb pointed to the current guardian, "Did you want to step aside and talk Mr. Kooper? I know you said you had something you wanted my input on." There was no better time than when Dante was slightly distracted. It would probably give Ruarc a chance to talk adult to adult without him around.

    Even if he was still considered young compared to the three adults here, Zeid knew when a conversation no longer needed his attention. They were being polite about it but it was no less apparent.

    "Sounds like an idea." Dante chimed in having been paying attention. His arms were crossed firmly over his chest trying to look intimidating. Whether that was intentional or not was verbally confirmed. "We'll be a minute or two. Depending."

    "All yours Mr. Kooper."

    Still uncomfortable with the stranger, Tane began nodding as Zeid brought up the suggestion to step aside. There were things he wanted to ask the kid, but this situation was delicate. Zeid and Dante hinted at so much and, if Tane was anything, he was not going to betray that understanding. "Please excuse us then," he said, placing a hand upon Dante's shoulder, giving the man a curious look. It wasn't like he didn't trust any strangers. He just simply.... didn't trust any strangers. At least, not right now.

    Tane led the way, trying to get far enough away from the stranger that he might not creep in and listen, but not too far that he would think they were somehow trying to escape and ditch him for any reason. Though, the man could think what he wanted. If he thought that they were going to ditch, then he could deal with that disappointment. Tane supposed it was his attitude and what he wanted to do with it.

    "Listen,"
    he said, stopping by some shelves of educational books of a sort. Grammar and spelling and the like, he really only glanced for a moment because his eyes wandered. "We found something we thought you ought to look at. I wanted your opinion on it. Specifically, I wanted your take on there." Extending a hand, Tane offered out a couple scrolls of maps the two had found after the boy wandered off. "If these old maps might hold a clue to and potentially forgotten locations your mother may have thought to journey to." He tried be somehow both specific and vague just in case someone was still listening in around here, and so avoided words like 'old shrines she might have opened' or 'distant lands she sought out'.
