A delicate Blood Elf woman strode up the steps to the Scryer’s library. She was garbed in high heeled boots, stiff elbow length red and gold gloves, a matching corseted robe, and a white hooded cloak which hid her face somewhere deep within. The strap of a sizable messenger bag was draped over her shoulder and under the cloak. She and a guard nodded absently to each other, neither really paying the other much mind.
She browsed the shelves before pausing front of some particularly old tomes that she’d stopped to study before. Gingerly she slid a hefty book from its place. The elegant style of the runic writing and intricate illuminations only enhanced the already significant value of the spells within themselves. Her dainty gloved fingers turned the pages with great care inspecting the workmanship.
Despite or perhaps due to the excessively gentle manner in which she handled the tome it slipped through her fingers and hit the marble floor with a mighty WHUMP. Several heads turned her way and her body language was sheepish as she bent to retrieve it, cloak enveloping her kneeling form.
The Elf quickly slid the precious book back into its place as she stood and moved on to another shelf. This time she only briefly inspected a small herbalist almanac before striding out the way she came.
She walked straight to the lift, pausing anxiously at its edge. Heights… Why was everything good in Outland always placed so high up? The heels clicked softly on the textured surface and she waited tensely for the lift to reach bottom.
Once in Lower City she ducked into the nearest outhouse and began to strip. Off came the enveloping cloak, the dainty gloves, the corset, the boots, the robe and the form shaping bandages underneath were loosened so that Anukaar could expand to a more natural shape. If he’d still had features he’d look pleased with himself. He sighed in relief and pulled the tome out of the messenger bag to inspect it again.
It would be a while before they noticed the fake that he’d swapped it out for. It was a lovely replica even if he did say so himself. Sure, he got lazy after a couple of chapters where he’d begun to just make up poetic sounding gibberish but at a glance? Perfect.
There were definitely interested parties he could sell the original to in the Consortium. He put it away again this time wrapped in the Elven style lady’s clothes. After rewrapping himself properly and getting dressed in more traditional Ethereal garments Anukaar headed out to do some casual shopping while he was in the city and put off the inevitable terrifying flight back to Netherstorm.
