@Crimson Vapor: Given that Naoto had to leave us to save you i assumed that was a bit further away and that Richter, Stasis and Slayer were alone right now.

The man responded to Richter's question with something akin to grunting. Richter was surprised for a second, despite the looks, the man sounded and acted more like a man from the North than Algilia. The next sentence the man spoken confirmed that as it vaguely sounded like something the tribes in the North would say. Besides that half-made sentence the man was silent without giving off a tone. "A man of few words, you'd make a poor companion for any traveler but me." Richter's smiled at him but the smile turned into a grin on the right side giving him a rather strange image.
The other man approached him as well and spoke. Much like Slayer, this man also did not speak the language he was supposed to. Both the language and the mannerism of the man while speaking belonged to Bealis, the country Richter's own kingdom was at war when he left. Any other knight would now threaten to take the man's life just for speaking that vile language, but Richter was different, right now he was here exactly because he didn't care about that kind of relationships. Before Richter had any chance to respond to the man's question a third person joins them by crashing from the sky right between them.
The man that asked Richter the question departs leaving the other three alone. The newcomer asks the a question, but then without leaving them any time to even think about a possible answer he charges at Richter.
Richter wasn't gonna stay there and go deeper into his reason for doing so, he just ducks, dodging the man's fist and sliding across the ground right behind him.
He draws Kindralth and pints it at the man.
Combat officially began for Richter the second he unsheathed his weapon, a conflict was unavoidable.
