Juno: *riding her horse* Let's see...he must be here someplace....
Auni: Are you lost Miss?
Juno: Oh? *turns to him* No, not lost....rather, I'm searching for someone.
Auni: Oh... who?
Juno: A falcon laguz man named Kendall. Have you seen him?
Auni: nope. Sorry, Miss
Juno: *frowns* Ah, well...I hadn't expected it. Thank you for your time.
Auni: Of course. Should you be out on your own?
Juno: *cocks her head a bit* How do you mean?
Auni: By yourself... I don't know, doesn't seem like a young woman should be out on her own. Unsafe, you know?
Juno: *smiles gently* Thank you for your concern, but I can take care of myself.
Auni: Of course I didn't mean that you.. I'm sorry, Miss. Please, forgive me.
Juno: *cocks her head again* You were merely concerned about my welbeing, were you not? There is no need to apologize for that.
Auni: But I.. I shouldn't be telling people what to do. I'm sorry.
Juno: *chuckles* You apologize over the silliest things! You asked me in the form of a question, not told me in the form of a demand. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what you said.
Juno: My name is Juno; may I ask you for yours?
Auni: I'm Auni. Nice to meet you, Miss Juno
Juno: *nods in acknowledgement* A pleasure to meet you as well, Sir Auni.
Auni: I um.. I'm no sir, just Auni, Miss
Juno: Oh, right. *chuckles* Sorry, it's a dreadful habit of mine.
Auni: It's okay, Miss
Juno: *smiles* Right. I'm afraid I must take my leave here; I still do have a person I must find. I bid you a good day, Auni.
Auni: Of course. I'm sorry to waste your time.
Juno: *opens her mouth to tell him otherwise, but sighs when she realizes it would be useless to try and talk him out of insulting himself* Have a nice day, Auni. *bows respectfully before she leaves*
Auni: Yes, Miss.

Support Level B Edit
Juno: *healing an injuried wolf* Here you go, young one. Off with you, now. *the wolf yelps thankfully, licking her face before taking off*
Auni: Y-you heal wolves?
Juno: Oh, Auni. Well, I heal just about any injured creature I come across.
Auni: But what if that wolf kills someone?
Juno: That wolf was just a pup; it hasn't killed a thing in its life. Besides, wolves don't attack people unless they are provoked.
Auni: But.. but it still could when its older someday...
Juno: So you would deny help to someone today, based on what they might do tomorrow? That's a bit judgmental, don't you think?
Auni: I... I didn't mean to... I'm sorry
Juno: *chuckles a bit* I understand what you mean; it's quite normal to be wary of things.
Auni: I should not have questioned your judgement though, Miss.
Juno: Do not worry so much, Auni. You apologize too much; you are entitled to your own opinion.
Auni: I.. I'm sorry?
Juno: *chuckles* Time is the best teacher, I suppose. You were a noble's servant at one time, weren't you? I can tell by the way you speak; afraid to offend, yet polite and dignified.
Auni: A slave, Miss. Not servant.
Juno: *blinks* A slave? I'm so sorry....
Auni: It is not your fault...
Juno: Yes, I know; I'm sorry it had to happen to you, though. How did you escape?
Auni: My sister... well my half sister. She was my master's daughter, and so she knew how to escape...
Juno: *lets out a small gasp* Your own father....that's terrible!
Auni: Yes, he did not consider me his son. He was a cruel man...
Juno: I'm glad you managing to escape....no one deserves that kind of treatment.
Auni: Yes, the beatings were difficult... and the hunger. Its like a whole different world..
Juno: Your father sounds like a monster among men...
Auni: He was.. almost everyone there was. My master, the guards.. even the slaves sometimes
Juno: The guards were following orders, I suppose...and when enslaved, something gives in eventually; whether it be your emotions, your logic, or your mind.
Auni: Yeah, we all just fended for ourselves really. Never stood up for anyone or anything. I thought they might help me when my mom died, but they all just kept to themselves..
Juno: That sounds about how it works; they acted out of fear, not spite.
Auni: It was a scary place...
Juno: I can only imagine how you must have felt....
Auni: I.. I'm sorry, I should not be talking to you about this..
Juno: No, no, it's alright....I'm no strange to this subject in the slightest.
Auni: Still I... you don't need to speak to me out of kindness, Miss. I'm sure you have important things to tend to
Juno: Nothing that I must do is something that I can accomplish within any set frame of time. I can take a moment out of my day to speak with you.
Auni: I.. Yes, Miss.
Juno: *smiles and places her hand on his shoulder* You must remember that you are a human, Auni; you are a free man. You can live your life as you wish, without worry. That man will never be able to harm you again.
Auni: I know... Please, Miss, I should be on my way..
Juno: Oh, yes, I understand. I hope to see you sometime again, Auni.

Support Level A Edit
Juno: *facing off against two men wearing dark blue armor* Tell me where he is!
Auni: *watching from a little ways away* Uh oh... *crawls closer*
Juno: I will not go back! I refuse!
Auni: *Waiting behind them with his axe* ...
Juno: *the men move to grab her, but she jumps back and brings out her stave*
Auni: *rushes out and slams his axe into one of the men's back* Don't you touch her!
Juno: *surprised* Auni!
- the other man runs off*
Auni: Are you okay Miss?
Juno: Yes, I'm fine....thank you for your assistance, Auni.
Auni: Of course..
Juno: I'm glad you were here, otherwise I may not have gotten away.
Auni: Why were they after you?
Juno: *sighs*.....Those were my father's men. I ran away from home and they were trying to bring me back.
Auni: Y-you ran away too?
Juno: Not for the same reason as you; I ran away because of love.
Auni: What do you mean?
Juno: Well....believe it or not, I am a woman of noble birth.
Auni: I know. I can tell by the way you talk
Juno: Hm...well, that wasn't as climatic as I thought it'd be. *shrugs* Oh well. Anyway, my father is like most nobles; he keeps laguz as his slaves. One slave in particular grew very close to me; a falcon laguz named Kendall.
Auni: Oh.. I'm sorry to hear that. What happened?
Juno: Eventually, we grew to be...romantically involved. When my father found out, he was furious. He threatened to have him killed. I didn't let him; I set Kendall free the night before his execution was to take place, then I escaped myself. We were separated during the retreat, and now I'm trying to find him.
Auni: Oh.. you didn't plan a place to meet up?
Juno: *shakes her head* It was too chaotic to do anything more than run.
Auni: Oh.. I thought maybe before hand... so you still haven't found him, huh?
Juno: No, I haven't. I'm confident he's out there looking for me as well....but the Goddess must be placing us through this trial for a reason.
Auni: The who?
Juno: The Goddess....surely you know of Her?
Auni: I guess not...
Juno: You mean you never learned of the Goddess? No wonder you seemed so hopeless when you described your captivity.
Auni: We didn't have contact with the outside world.. and its not like the guards ever told us about gods or goddesses
Juno: I see....shall I teach you, then?
Auni: Sure! I mean... if you don't mind, Miss...
Juno: Very well, then; let's begin
