It's late afternoon on our journey, and the fashionistas are finally arriving at the Meeting!
Duke Brundali, famed technician and the train's creator, is having a peaceful cuppa tea on a couch, acting as modest as ever. Though some would say that in the throes of technological breakthroughs, he is a crazed madman who stays up for nights on end scrawling blueprint after blueprint, bending the very concept of what it means to create a construct, ignoring the thresholds of metal and physics, forcing sheer genius from his fingertips ~ *ahem* Sorry, I got carried away there.
Though some would say that, he's really a calm and interesting sort.

Who is that he's gazing so lovingly at? Why, the fruit bat Duchess Novita stroking a new Brundali original, a construct Brundali is boldly labeling as a new class, with the title Ampa'bi.

The construct's ability to move without legs or other sort of excess extremity will be revolutionary, and Brundali is excited to show it off to his very excitable, very wealthy group of potential investors.
Bokeh was right about the airship plans - Brundali has a grand hand to play during this Meeting. The new airship would be above and beyond what Ulukerno would have been able to conceive on his own, though Brundali would never have been able to make his own plans without Ulukerno's original concept to start with.
Though Brundali had no worries about his group of wealthy investors, he always kept a bodyguard in his employ, someone who would be dedicated to watching out for his best interests. Harum was in such employ during this trip.

Brundali is not the only technician showing off during the Meeting, though! Similarly to how Cirosouyat brought her private technician, Salacca, other fashionistas are also excited to show off their private constructs and their inventors.
Technician Cicely and her construct Xi'ana are attending with that in mind~
Art by Sigil
If Cicely had been talented enough to figure out a way to make Xi'ana airborne, Brundali may have had a rival to contend with - but the stained glass that makes up the butterfly's wings makes it hard for the adorable creation to walk, much less fly.
While Cicely may not have been able to manage flight, Cirosouyat and Salacca were managing to turn heads with their reveal of Boli'ana...
Art by Hebrew
Using the Meeting as a way to impress all of their friends and peers at once, they steal the show with a dramatic entrance. Though companion constructs were commonplace, Boli'ana's fluid motion and delicate details were a real testament to Salacca's skill.
Next time, The Big Meeting, Part 2!

Nezumi, is that what Cicely's supposed to be? I had a hell of a time figuring it out. She looks super cool, I just had no idea what kind of animal she is.
