Man's Best Friend (79)

Post by Consumer »

This is a combination of pet store and veterinary office. Doctor Hanark Banrom (5th level Body Fixer, Scrupulous alignment) is the resident vet with his daughter Cassy (2nd level Vagabond, holistic healer). Both resemble Dog Boys, but they are D-Bees from another dimension and have canine-like legs rather than the human-like legs of the Dog Boys. There are also four human assistants at the store. A typical pet shop, it sells pet food, supplies, collars, leashes, cages, and a selection of common and exotic animals such as mice, rats, hamsters, puppies, kittens, birds and a few species of harmless or domesticated alien animals, including the occasional Dragonsaurus common to Atlantis.

Rumor has is it that the Doctor arrived on Rifts Earth via Atlantis and may have once been a slave of the Splugorth. He never talks about it, and if his daughter knows anything, she never says. In addition to treating pets and livestock, Doctor Banrom also treats Dog Boys and other animal-like mutants and D-Bees. The cost is a modest fee that barely covers his expenses. If the good doctor or his daughter ever fell into trouble there are dozens of grateful Dog Boys and mutants who would com e to their aid.

Dhaltuun pulls up in front of the office. Opening his door, and standing on the frame , let's Dhaltuun see over the roof. ”Looks like the place.” He jumps down, ’This is it. Lets go, my girl.’ Dhaltuun sticks out his elbow, and clicks his tongue. As his beautiful lands on his shoulder, Dhaltuun pulls out some jerky. After taking a bite, and giving her the rest, he heads inside.

As he walks the aisles, Dhaltuun enjoys the animals on display. When he sees something exotic, he will admire it before moving on. Approaching the counter, he smiles and lets Marcella fly to a perch nearby. ”Good day, my friend(s). My name is Dhaltuun. I am a follower of Njord, and this is my faithful and beautiful familiar, Marcella.’ He cocks his head and has Marcella land on the counter. ’I would like to inquire into getting her checked over, maybe on a regular basis?”

The canine-form D-bee at the counter looks at Dhaltuun. "Well hello there, I remember you vaguely, you've been in before." She says politely. She nods, and looks into Dhaltuun's info on a computer. "Ah yes, we have you right here. Bringing Marcella in for a check up? Anything wrong or just making sure." The woman asks, looking at the Osprey.

Once Dhaltuun answers, she nods. "You're in luck, my father doesn't have any appointments at the moment, so he could take a look at Marcella. As for getting her checked on a regular basis, that just requires you to make regular appointments for her." The woman says before walking over to a door near the back. "Dad, you have a gentleman here who'd like you to look at his pet Osprey." She says, to whomever is in the other room.

"Sure send him in." A even quieter voice says from the other room.

The woman turns to Dhaltuun. "He'll see you and Marcella now."

Inside the back room is a clean examination room, and sitting on a wheeled stool is another canine-like D-bee. He stands up and approaches Dhaltuun. "Why hello there, this must be the young patient. Marcella right, it's hard to forget a pretty face." He says, Dhaltuun is almost unsure if he's talking to the bird or him.

"Any issues of note, or just a check up?" The man asks.

Once answered, The man takes Marcella and gives her a look over. checking a few things with medical instruments. All in all it takes about twenty minutes. "She's a healthy bird mister Dhaltuun. I don't see any issues overtly visible, and she seems very happy." The man says.

"My daughter will write up the bill, and you can pay with her, if you'd like to schedule another appointment for the future you can do that with her as well." The man says before handing Marcella back.

Outside in the main store, the woman awaits. "Total comes to two hundred credits. Would you like to schedule your next appointment now, or closer to when you may bring her back in?"

Perception: 31% / [roll]1d100[/roll]: [96] = 96 [/roll]
JiC d20 | d100: [roll]1d20[/roll]: [12] = 12 [/roll] | [roll]1d100[/roll]: [13] = 13 [/roll]
Initiative: [roll]1d20+1[/roll]: [9]+1 = 10 [/roll]
APM: 6


Dhaltuun smiles at the greeting. ’Thank you, young one. Yes, I have been here once before, but it has been too long I will make sure to stop more often. And this is just a check up.” He strokes Marcella lovingly as he awaits an answer about the appointment.

Once the appointment is confirmed, Dhaltuun thanks the young lady and enters the office.

Dhaltuun cant help but swell with pride at the compliment. ’I know he was talking to you, my pretty, but it is still nice to hear.” He looks at the doc, ”Just a check up. Never can be too safe. She is my most treasured.”

After the exam, dhaltuun retrieves Marcella and heads out to the front where he produces his card for payment. ”Thank you so much. So I will pay my bill in full and would like to make a 300 cr. donation for a total of 500 cr. Is that okay?” After paying, Dhaltuun will smile and head out to his buggy.

As he gets in and gets them comfortable, Dhaltuun has a thought. ”Time to see a man about a board.”[ He takes out more jerky and after each having a bite, heads off to Poseidon's Shipwrights.

The canine-like D-bee woman shrugs. "Not exactly common, but we're not against it." She says ringing Dhaltuun up.

Money deducted.
