"I was always more focused on the art of civilization and how one could grow under the conditions of their universe," Hemmingsworth replied, reclining back into the couch. His appearance placed him somewhere in his sixties, or maybe seventies - but his eyes conveyed that he was far older than he looked.
"My primary hobby is the art of sword-fighting, one could say. My duties place me as the head of the warrior branch of my particular religious order. We have different chapters all over the omniverse, but they all ultimately report to the heads of the different branches."
Clearing his throat, Hemmingsworth supposed that he could indulge such information - it wasn't like his own order wasn't down-low. They were everywhere, almost.
"My own protégé runs a private military. I can barely keep a leash on him when he gets out of hand, but he listens to me."
<the lizard looks on amazed> Ah, I knew you were cultured, it's only natural that would be your interest. If you're interested in the growth of civilizations though, are you aware that Mambi and this structure dates back close to 4000 years? It's true...he told me the tale. Mambi stopped aging after he got his powers and that predated the Egyptian pharaohs based on his description. Plus most of the technology here comes from the Andromeda galaxy before their war when they were at their peak, and that was a good 2500 years ago. Do you see? You are literally sitting in a historical museum that personally observed the rise of civilization! <the lizard laughs> But yeah, Mambi can tell you tales he personally witnessed from centuries, and he's travelled around so he saw a lot.
So you're a religious warrior as well? Interesting! Is you protege here at the party as well? We welcome all faiths in this place, so that won't be a problem, but may I ask what the root beliefs are? Reigious discussions are always so fascinating when done in peace and not for conversion, and if branches are ahcross the omniverse, it is clearly a multitiered orginization, presumably with a hierarchy. Though if you have protege's with private paramilitaries, I'm going to assume you are not necessarily a "turn the other cheek" pacifist sort of faith? <grins and listens intently>
