Toka, after getting tired of waiting, punched a guy behind him in the nose. Instead of triggering a fight however the man yelled "you did it! You fixed my broken nose!" Toka looked at him like he was a nutcase and turned back to the bar
The knife had pierced through the man against the wall's ear. He had frozen in shock and was now staring at the hilt less than two inches from his eye. He slowly reached up to touch his ear and screamed.
The small crowd gathered around Flare gave a collective gasp and turned angry faces toward her. She shrugged and grabbed a glass of beer from a person standing next to her. She took a sip, swallowed, and set it back in his shocked hands.
"Sorry?" she said to the man who was now sobbing, stuck on the wall. She walked a few paces, pulled her knife off of the wall, flipped it, and stuck it in her belt. "I've got to go."
Edward looked at the tall woman next to him also getting a drink as the bartender got their rum. When Edward got his, he said to the woman "You seem like the kind of person who is well versed in sea travel. I can tell from your looks."
Toka ordered a rum and downed it in seconds. Already knowing his informant wasn't going to be here, he ordered another rum. Tika heard other bs going on and wondered if he could blend into a pirate crew. His garrish appearance could fit in but he had no idea what he'd do as a pirate

Toka wondered if the freak that stole his sister also hid on a pirate ship. the damn monster. toka thought. He hated thinking about it. He took another swig of rum angry at just about anything. Then someone burst through the door wearing a suit made of newspapers. "Tank where've ya been?!" Toka shouted at the newspaper clad stranger. This man was his informant and probably the dumbest person he knew
