Challenge #04013-J360: An Unusual Affliction

Wraithvine, Gikka, and Bibrid disguised as a a small imp enter a kingdom where runners are swiftly going through the cities looking for a strong healer to heal the princess. Unfortunately, the situation is dire as her injuries from the animal attack are infected and getting worse. Sadly, dealing with royals is something that terrifies the immortal healer.]( -- Anon Guest

Legends told of a magical Gnome who could keep a living body frozen in time. The iconography was horrifyingly close to Bibrid's chosen form. Which was why he had chosen another. One guaranteed to cause people to take caution and keep their distance.

Bibrid looked like an Imp. An unusual choice, but an Imp in the company of a Wizard, generally with some variety of electrum chain on their body, was automatically assumed to be a tame, summoned creature. It also helped that Bibrid kept himself within flinching reach of Wraithvine.

People who saw them together assumed that Wraithvine held him on a leash, and then were surprised that it wasn't there. They were also a little shocked to see a Kobold so close to an Imp. The assumption being that Dragons and Dragonkindred didn't get along with any creature that entered the mortal plane from another. People assume incredibly wrong things more often than not.
