You head to the warehouse to see Claire.

Walking in, you see Claire prodding at one of the dissected cores with some long tools from the safety of behind the clear mobile barrier.

Ingret seems to have gotten bigger, as expected, now nearly twice your height. She's staring at an opened book on the table, a pile of others near it.

The bird looks up to greet you in the same Bezel voice that you first heard.

Ingret: "Hey Ralph."

"Hey Ingret, hey Claire.

How are things going? Any major progress in understanding how the compression functions?"

Ingret: "Flying regulations, and a dictionary."

She lifts one of her wings over an opened heavy tome, using an extended finger to turn several pages before bringing the wing back to her side.

Her feathers seem to have acquired a more ruffled and more textured appearance lately, looking almost like cloth.

Ingret: "You went with Bezel."

She pauses for a moment, then starts flipping through the pages of the dictionary.

Ingret: "Not working."

More flipping, and then she stops, peering down at the book.

Ingret: "For enjoyment? Yes.

Was it nice?"

"Yup. We had a nice little date.
How'd you know?"

Ingret: "Bezel told me. She normally spends time with me, and she tells me what she does when she leaves and returns.

Your work is digging, right? Digging and searching for old things. Except you haven't been doing a lot of digging lately."

"Yes! And, also, reading about old things so we know where to dig, and what things to look for. And occasionally being the team's interspecies diplomat."

"Very careful digging, but yes. Digging and searching.
And yeah, haven't been digging much. Been more of, running away from monsters and following Bezel and Claire around while they get things done."

Ingret: "Bezel says she wants you to be more useful, so she gave you the mana stone and wants to make constructs for you.

I think you just need to show her that you can dig better than her. I'm useful because I can fly better than her."

"You're better than her at a lot of things, you just don't know it yet.

Also... Yeah, I could get better at this. It just so happens, the things we've been looking for have not often been buried. Like you!"

"A person, way north in Silo. They're a spirit specialist.
Unfortunately, if we have to dig them up, then the mission is kind of already a failure."

"Okay, so- Bezel has probably told you what we're trying to do. We want to make a way for people to talk and do things at very long ranges. We know something like it has been done before, so we just need to find all the pieces of it.

First, we discovered that witches could move things around pretty fast, using fourth-level magic. So, we talked with the Soundhead witches to know what exactly they could do, and acquired a few witch cores to see if we could pull it off as well. Things went better than expected and well, now you're here.

Our next target is a spirit specialist living in the city of Silo, far to the north. Spirit magic and gates are supposedly capable of sending information and matter, respectively, through the other, so it'd be worth studying them.

The train tracks don't go all the way across the continent, though, so we were originally thinking of flying an airship there. But, with you around, we might not need to!"

Ingret: "Hm. Won't be long until I can start flying. We'll find that spirit specialist."

Ingret goes back to reading. Looking over at Claire, you see that she's still carefully digging through the core, taking breaks every now and then to draw in her sketch book.

[Timeskip to expedition!]
[Go see Claire]
