You jog up to the doll and tap it on the shoulder, giving it a wave when it turns to face you. No passerby looks in your direction, so it seems that they're not able to notice you, since it would probably be a bit strange if a random person just randomly stopped and waved.

Aldente: "Hi Ralph. Is there something you need?"

"Yeah. Well kinda several things, but main thing is I was hoping you could draw up some notes on anti-schal measures, for when my team goes back to the ruins.
Side thing, one of my team members can see you around town and had a minor freakout about it.
Other side thing how's the search going?"

Aldente: "Search is so far boring, which is good. I will put aside a doll to deliver some information to you.

Your team member, Evelyn, right? A rare one she is."

Aldente: "She's an Aura mage.

Ancient mages originally could not cast magic outside of their body, greatly limiting what they could do. Artifact and Tendril casting were eventually evolved, and significant crossbreeding between the two has resulted in the vast majority of mages being a hybrid.

A third, much more rare form of external casting developed in isolated groups of people, where the bounds of their spirit was significantly larger than that of their body, allowing them to simply cast in the non overlapping regions.

Many people have minor aura traits from far-away ancestors, but Evelyn is much stronger in that area than normal."

"Oh. Is that why she can see you? You can't reach to her body to do telepathy?
Wait. Does that mean she has an anti-magic field around her?"

Aldente: "Telepathy resistance isn't innate to aura mages, but she does have a powerful anti-magic field around her. I do not know the exact mechanism, but I suspect it's a technique that can't be cast within the bounds of the body for one reason or another.

Bezel is sufficiently insulated from telepathy as well, if you were curious, though that's just because she's very dense. Not an uncommon trait of constructors."

"Interesting. I'm a bit surprised you even managed to glean that from her, then, considering said shield. But then, I guess information gathering IS your specialty.

Speaking of that - Uh, aren't you a bit worried someone else will notice your dolls? Considering how many are running around, and how many people are out on the streets - There's oughta be at least a few good telepaths there?"

Aldente: "I've already found three others that could see my dolls. One was easy to overpower and wipe his memories, another I convinced to check every bell store for schals while wearing one of my masks, and the last is having lunch in my restaurant."

"Well. Prepared as always, it seems.

I'll wait for your doll, then. Thanks for helping out."

Heading to a secluded area of the park, you take a path concealed by trees and rest on a bench, activating your Soundhead beacon and setting it beside you.


Several minutes pass before you hear footsteps - another one of Aldente's masked dolls, smaller than the others you've seen, wearing a short black dress and skipping eagerly towards you.

She stops close to the bench and lifts the mask up - familiar speaker grills on the sides of her head, yellow eyes, pale skin.

Galena: "Ralph! Long time no see!"

"...Don't tell me it was YOU she was talking about when she said she recruited someone to search all the nearby bell shops.

Also uh, hi Galena! Yup, it's been a while. What brings you to Darson? Other than yearning for my company, that is~"

Galena: "Pizzi told me there were some new friends in town to party with, so I came over and then I ran into -"

She twirls and covers her face with the mask again -

Galena: "The Masked Militia! A secret organization maintaining the peace and order behind the scenes, and currently under investigation of a possible resurgence of body-snatcher schals! I remember hearing stories about those schals, awful things that're supposed to be all dead. If they're back, then things are really serious!"
