Synti had already picked out her next target-- it was an amber rook, with enough stripes to sufficiently cover a kukuri four times over, at least in her opinion. She had been watching him for a little bit, trying to figure out the best way to get what she wanted out of him.
She had first spotted him a few days ago, when he was out hunting and she had been... rather bored, if nothing else. When she had first laid her eyes on Lanterns, it struck her that she should try and mess with the rook, if for nothing but to alleviate her boredom.

She had considered stealing his kill, but that was boring; a master trickstress like herself could do far better than such mediocre things.
It had, admittedly, taken her a couple days to come up with a satisfactory plan. She had seen the rook strut and bend to no one's authority
