Don't be eye candy, be soul food. -- Anon Guest
After the Hunger War, things were relatively quiet. Never too quiet, because despite the differences that were buried to literally fight for life, people liked to remember a grudge or three. The Bureaux of Balance went public and attempted to help keep a lid on things.
And despite semi-retirement, it wasn't that much of a shock to see living legends turn up in situations loaded with strife. Well. Technically three living legends, two semi-undead legends, and the Grim Reaper if things were really horrible.
Taako was easy to spot. He was the one in the most 'extra' outfit. He cashed in on fame, and like any elfin wizard with a lot of money, blew it all on his jackdaw-esque jewelry and fashion collection. Which included platform heels. Merle, squat and stumpy as always, took one look at his bejeweled friend (and his bejeweled wardrobe) and said, "I thought Magnus was the designated target in this game."
