Bellena arose early this morning and prepared herself for a busy day. She discussed with Juanito a possible room change in the Hacienda before walking out to the church for a moment of peace to start her day.

She sat in the empty cathedral and pulled out her rosary as she began to focus her mind on the images and words of Kharsis as she prayed for guidance.

Prayers brought her nothing but inner calm.

After prepping herself for the day she walked out of the cathedral and into the courtyard where many of the people she had brought were stirring and preparing for their day. Seeing them in a place of relative safety caused a smile to cross her lips as she greeted the early risers who came forward to thank her.

Following the conversation of the locals did not always bring one to the proper place, soon she had managed to find herself within the Merenae sector. Stood in front of the Church of Karsis' Mercy the young Samurai stared at the small compound beyond the gate for some time. There was a charm to it that Kaiya decided was worth investigating. Through the gate, with Sakia close behind, the two Rokugani women started walking the grounds of their own accord.

Seeing the newcomer, and one dressed in the trappings of the Imperial families Bellena's attention was drawn to Kaiya. She slowly worked her way over to Kaiya and offered a bow as a greeting to the pair.

Kaiya recognized the woman from their time back in Rokugan, that much was clear, as was how Sakia did not. Both women bowed in response, and Sakia, albeit unsure if the woman would surely understand her, said her piece.

"Greetings, this is Seppun Kaiya-sama. One of the First Imperial Explorers and the First Mate of the Walrus."

Bellena was somewhat surprised that the servant was the one to speak, but began to formulate the reasoning for that in her mind quickly. She smiled and replied, "It's a pleasure to meet you both. I am Muhaki Berena, First Officer of the Kunshu Maru. What brings you both here today? Doing a bit of adventuring?"

"Seppun Kaiya-sama was tasked with finding a place to stay within the city, as have all the Imperial Explorers, and has set about seeing as much as she can about these streets in that time," she said. A rather nice way of avoiding the fact that they've been led astray on their journey a bit. Meanwhile Kaiya stood by, maintaining the image of a prim and proper Samurai.

"Unfortunately, Seppun Kaiya-sama is without the ability to speak as we commonly may. It is her hope that this does not cause offense.

Bellena shook her head, "She has done none to me. And I doubt many will take offense seeing that she has such a dutiful servant at her side."

She tilted her head, "Does Seppun-sama have any questions about her new environment?"

Sakia checked with the woman quickly, noting the shake of her head and then replied on her behest, "Though there are many questions, of course. There are not ones that Seppun Kaiya-sama would be able to ask of you. Some things may not be asked for but only discovered for oneself."

She chuckled, "Very well... This one thinks that there are probably also many things that one cannot understand without asking. But I won't impose my knowledge on anyone who would like to figure things out on their own."

Kaiya nodded and walked forward, with an inviting pace moving closer to the center. Looking to the people, and then the buildings and finally centering on the main construction itself. A building that long stood the test of time. Turning about she looked to Sakia and made some swift hand motions.

"Who do you worship here?" Sakia asked on Kaiya's direction.

“This is a... temple to Kharsis, the deity revered in Thrane and Merenae.” She replied.

"Seppun Kaiya-sama has never heard of such a deity," Sakia replied. Kaiya's dutiful servants eyes seemed to manage both watching for the woman's signals and keeping an appropriate contact with the conversation partner.

"Is that so? It is a religion that is not permitted on Rokugani shores from my recollection." She replied.

"It is the main system of belief for many outside Rokugan, however."

Kiaya, pausing from glancing about the courtyard looked to Bellena directly to show the earnestness of her question both as she signed and continuing through until Sakia spoke the very words.

"Would you be willing to speak of it for Seppun Kaiya-sama's sake?"

"Sure... what is it she'd like to know?" She asked.

"It would probably be most wise to begin at the basics, what this Kharsis actually is?" Sakia said.

"In the Kharsis faith... there was once a woman who was born to the creating deities of the world. She came to earth and taught many great things to her followers, and prepared a means by which those who believe on her could be admitted into a place called 'heaven' with her upon their deaths. She is thought to be a benevolent and loving deity who cares for all peoples and provides safety and protection to the weak and the strong." She replied.

"It is a faith based on charity and kindness. It is meant to have people care for others of less fortunate circumstances and provide for those who cannot feed themselves. Believers tend to be self-sacrificing, caring and compassionate people."

"The way you speak of it Muhaki Berena-sama, it sounds as if you do not believe in this faith yourself," Sakia pointed out curiously. Though Kaiya's hands remained still, nor did the woman seem to outwardly react to the information.
