Tesla had introduced herself and made ready to make her way to the island with him with no hesitation. He found her interesting, to say the least, and somewhat mysterious, which went a smidge further to keep him engaged in seeking out information about her. It seemed she was some sort of huntress, but not necessarily of prey. He wanted her, if she was any good at her job, though the only quarry he knew her to seek had obviously slipped away without her being able to find success. Still, the desire was there, and that was something to consider.
Just before slipping into the water, he had bowed his head slightly, and spoken his name by way of introduction; “Crixus. A pleasure, Tesla.” And then the two had set out.
He was sufficiently impressed by her ability to keep up with him- he having made the swim many times, was no slowpoke about it, and was barely winded upon arrival on the shore, and so when they stepped onto the rock-strewn beach, he shook off, took a few steps, and turned to face her. “You will find the scents of two other females here, and of course that of myself.” He hadn’t happened across the cripple’s scent, so if she had reached the island, it would have been before he himself had done so- an unwelcome thought- and her scent would have long faded. However, she was welcome to explore and verify his truthfulness.
