Kohath, of course, stood out due to his stature. Fezandipiti pointed a wing at him. You there! You look as though you know a thing or two about fighting. Won't you join me in confronting the ogre?
Kohath raised a brow. Well, now he'd directly been asked. And the bird had clearly alluded to his physique, not any beasts he might have had with him in some of those strange spherical containers. He wanted him to fight with his fists.
That was clearly foolish, but he did want to know what this fearsome ogre was like in person. He decided to agree partway.
"I will accompany you to the ogre," he said, loud enough to be heard well, "but I do not know if I can be of any help. The ogre seems all too strong for a human to take on." Even a Helixian. "If the opportunity comes, however, I will assist you."
He did not expect to actually assist the bird. If the ogre proved as powerful as he understood it to be, he would stay out of the fray and retreat if necessary. Hopefully the ogre would not pursue him.
