----Description: 

========== WRITTEN TEST ==========

   A Zangoose, followed by a young Ralts, walked down the somewhat peaceful morning Andalusst road. The Zangoose was missing his red left ear, and his 'scar' went off the left side of his face. Extra tufts of fur sprouted from his cheeks. He wore a slightly torn gray hoodie, fastened by a gold, red, & black button.

  The Ralts appeared as if any average Emotion Pokemon. She wore a dark-blue Shawl with Cyan buttons lining the front. On the back was a Crescent moon sewn onto it. A Joltik, half the size of a normal one, was sitting atop her head. "Are you sure I can't bring him with me, No-ear?" she asked the cat-ferret.

   Without turning to face her, Zachary replied, "No, you'll have to start leaving Kyle with Mary, alright?" Dianna nodded somewhat sadly, patting Kyle's side.

Above your team stands one of the few restaurants around Andalusst that could be considered ritzy, Café Obscurité. The name is often looked upon as ironic, due to the establishment's success and popularity. Many can't afford to dine here, but it is where the Hunters have invited your team to speak with a Guild representative. Hopefully they don't expect you to pay...

   After a few seconds of observing, the trio proceeded to the front door.

The moment you step foot inside, the Pokémon at the front desk approaches you and shows your team to a table. It's located in one of the darker corners of the already-dim establishment, and it's already attended by a sly, smiling Furret with a blue newsboy cap. The Hunters representative, you realize, though he hardly seems like a good fit for the present surroundings.

"Hey, pull up a seat. Order your favorites; this one's on the guild's checkbook," he greets with a quick wave.

   Zachary took his seat across from the Furret, pulling his hood up to hide from the other diners. Dianna jumped up to hold onto the side of the table, smiling & giggling lightly. Kyle crawled off her head & sat on the table.

Shortly after your team is situated, an Empoleon waiter arrives at your table and passes a fancy-looking menu to everyone present. A number of higher-class dishes are represented on it, along with equally high-class prices. "The usual," the Normal-type comments with disregard, gently pushing the menu back against the Empoleon's chest. The waiter merely rolls his eyes and turns his attention to your team, waiting expectantly for your team to order.

   "I'll just have a Nomel berry drink, thanks," Zach told the Penguin. Dianna shouted "Leafy greeeeens!~" before falling on her rump, having let go of the table. Kyle continued staring at the furry 'mon.

Once he has everyone's orders, the waiter shoots one last annoyed glance at the strange fellow, who appears unfazed, before walking off. "No sense of humor," the Furret remarks with a shrug, before lazily slumping back in his seat. His gaze doesn't settle on anyone in particular, as though he's simply staring off somewhere.

"The name's Cuffin, but I'm sure you've already heard of me. No need for introductions on your part, I already know who ya are,"Cuffin says with another sly smirk, tapping his paws together. "So... I work for this kid, Sundance. He made me promise to ask ya a few things before I go off on my own thing. He'll get his feathers in a bunch if I don't, so humor me. First things first: why do you wanna join the Hunters?" The last question is accompanied by a roll of the eyes and a dramatic recitation, as if driving home the fact that he's being forced to ask this.

   The Ralts walked up to the Furret, saying, "They seem like the coolest." Zachary spoke up immediately after, "It's been one of her dreams since she heard about the guilds."

At the very least, Cuffin looks interested as he listens. Perhaps it isn't the question itself he's so annoyed about. "All right. Respectable, yeah. Down the list..." The scruffy Furret reaches for a parchment already settled upon the table. Rather than hold it up to read, he crumples it in his paws rather rudely, then promptly tosses it over his shoulder. "What can you bring to the Hunters? What skills or talents can you utilize for us?" Once again, his recitation of the question is somewhat mocking.

   "We can only bring what we end up giving, right Dianna?" The Ralts went back to holding onto the side of the table. "Aye aye, captain."

"Yeah, yeah, I gotcha. I guess we'll get to see some of that soon enough. Don't get me wrong; your answer don't mean you're gonna be taken or thrown out. This is basically... formalities..." Cuffin pauses, tilting his head upward thoughtfully. "...Yeah, formalities. I think that's the word he used. Whatever that means."

A grin comes over the Furret's fuzzy face as he readies himself for his next question, lowering the register of his voice. "This one's more interestin', to the little guy's credit. Are you against doin' things that the Royal Guard ain't gonna like if they catch ya doin' em?"

   Zach leaned over to the Furret. "Not like I haven't before," he whispered,  a small frown coming across his face.

The Normal-type's pointed ears twitch at the reply. "It ain't me, just sayin'. I know well enough that if yer here, then you an' I are prolly already aware of the answer to that question. I just needed somethin' to tell the kid." With a sigh of relief, Cuffin tosses his hands in the air, then at the sides of the chair dramatically. "Whew. All right, enough of that stuff. The kid is on the right track, but sometimes it seems like the royals crammed a stick really far up there, if ya know what I mean. All these "formalities" and junk... anyway, the rest is straight from me."

He looks left, then right... but given the way his bright eyes are never quite focusing on your team, this seems to be one of those "formalities" of his own. He then begins to explain in an oddly sincere fashion, "You already know the basic stuff, so I'm gonna level with ya. Truth is, the Hunters are all about knowin' things about everybody else. Yer gonna learn secrets that nobody else will know. It'll change the way you look at this whole city, and yer prolly not gonna like what you see, but you'll always know exactly what's goin' on under the coat of sugar. I wouldn't blame ya if you'd rather go hang with a Guild that doesn't deal in the worst of what Andalusst can offer."

   Dianna's smile faded as she replied with a curt nod. Zach laughed emptily and grinned. "I'm rather intrigued, Cuffin. Good on ya'," He told the long-body 'mon.

Cuffin's non-serious demeanor returns with a smirk at your response. "Is that so? Well... to be honest, I would've blamed ya, actually," he jokes with a lightly teasing tone. "Who doesn't wanna know everything about everybody? Life is all about keepin' yer options as open as possible 'til the right moment."

Just then, the waiter comes into earshot, flippers laden with everyone's orders. As he hesitates with the platter containing Cuffin's meal, one can't help but wonder if he's contemplating on spitting in it. The Furret doesn't appear to be looking at him anyway... and your team may begin to suspect that he couldn't even if he wanted to. The silver platters are placed on the table with mild clatter, but Cuffin faces your team again before paying them any mind.

"Before we eat..." he interrupts, reaching down and palming the nearest glass. He holds it up and forward across the table."Let's toast, to the new recruits," Cuffin proposes, though he leans in and adds with a whisper, "...That's you, just so ya know."

   With a nod, Zach raises his cup of berry juice, clanking it against the tan & brown 'mon's glass. Dianna, sitting on the floor of the restaurant, ate her salad quietly, her 'son' Kyle sitting in front of her, nibbling on a small piece of lettuce.
