The Keep was as busy as ever, life bustled by to and fro as people went about their lives. Traders hawked their wears, sailors unloading and loading cargo at the docks shouted warnings and instructions to one another as they worked. Those who had finished their work made their way toward the streets where they'd mix and mingle with all the other colorful inhabitants of Twin Keep. Some of these sailors were good honest men, traders and their ilk, others were pirates. With the alliance between the Steva nation and the pirate bands the place was often crawling with the underhanded thieves, yet there was little trouble among the towns. The people of the nation and he pirate had an understanding, stealing and killing was not allowed within Steva's borders, even pirates would be charged with such crimes, they were expected the act some what honestly on Steva's land. In tern the government turned a blind eye to the smuggling and other businesses the pirates ran. It wasn't an ideal partnership in any means, but they managed somehow, the need to survive was a powerful thing.
Some of these pirates belonged to the nefarious pirate ship The Stargazer, a rather unassuming ship that had docked earlier that morning. Among those men who had disembarked was the captain. After leaving strict instructions to the party assigned to remain with the ship, Trey eagerly disappeared into the crowd. After a time of wandering, as he often did, he noticed a certain woman sticking to the shadows before vanishing in the back alleyways. His eyes narrowed as a dark shadow followed after her. Casually he left he busy street and entered the alleyway the woman had entered. Keeping a safe distance from the stranger he silently followed, he wasn't entirely sure why he felt at unease, but that shadow hadn't left him with a very good feeling. So he resorted to stalking the girl until he was certain there was nothing wrong. If it turned out his instincts were right, he'd be close enough to lend a helping hand, if he was wrong and she wasn't in any danger he could quietly slip away without her ever knowing he was there.
