Cadrius moves to follow Shade, unsure of whether to be angry or in agreement with her. She's right to an extent they didn't ask him to protect them, Cadrius certainly felt as if his niche had been tread upon by the presence of a real paladin. A bitter taste enters his mouth as he thinks upon the holy warrior. His sudden distate has little to do with the man and much to do with the profession. Paladin reminds him of days long past, loves lost, and glory discarded, things he'll never have again.

Despite these feelings of resentment he leaps to his feet and is at Paladin's side mere moments after he hits the floor. He seems to be saying something but Cadrius can't understand it.

"Are you hurt?" he asks, checking the paladin for wounds from unseen foes.

A small crowd gathers around them. He looks up and glares at them until he spots a barmaid.

"You there," he says, pointing to her, "bring me a mug of water and a mug of ale."

She stands still a moment longer and then is gone, disappearing through the throng of people.

"As for the rest of you," he stands and grits his teeth before saying, "go back to whatever you were doing."

His voice is low, menacing, and the normally rough crowd seems to give a collective nod before moving back to their tables and booths. The barmaid appears with a mug in each hand.

"Thank you kindly," he says, dropping a gold piece in her palm.

He kneels by Paladin's side and holds the mug of water to the man's lips.

"Come on," he says roughly, "drink it and you will feel better."
