Roha found herself just beyond a settlement in the Canyon, having trekked outward to find a sort of tranquility one could only find outside of a city. She was off-duty at the moment and had found free time today, leading her on a stroll that had brought her just outside the city itself. It wasn't often she had a chance to do such a thing, she had a job, after all, among other things. As such, this was something she had planned to do for some time, but had never gotten around to doing until now. Granted, this was nothing special, it was just a walk, after all. It was a time to think, though, to ponder things, even if the city lay right behind her, and all she truly did was pace down the well-trodden path.
Being off-duty for the time, she dressed more like a civilian, wearing a pair of trousers and a tunic, though she kept her sheathed blade at her side, and a leather cuirass equipped on her torso. The day had already reached its half-point and the long, yet steady descent of the sun had begun as it passed its peak and moved towards its end, where it would beckon in the darkness of night. She hadn't gone far from home, and yet staring down the long road ahead that lead onward aroused a subtle curiosity. The lands beyond the Obsidian Canyon were always strangely fascinating, in a way. Somewhat surreal, even. The vast expanses of the dunes seemed to encompass all outside of her homelands. These white sands were a stark contrast to the rocky, somewhat lush canyon she had known as her home for all of her life. And here she was, on the edge of her reality, yet only the beginning of the true world, and what lay beyond.
Despite her innate interest in those distant lands, she was bound to the Canyon, as she always had been. Bound to her duty, dedicated to protecting her people. Such was the noble obligation of a soldier, a necessity in the world they lived in. Those that had chosen to defend these lands had kept the peace for this long, after all. The Obsidian Canyon was a relative safe haven for her people, and things had been pleasant, something more than what many could attest to.
At the end of the day, it was all she could ask for. A home, and a purpose. And yet, there was much to be seen beyond the towering walls of obsidian and stone she had lived in for so long. A vast, expansive world yet to be explored and appreciated. There was a tantalizing allure to the unknown, and yet alas, here she was, on the edge of the Obsidian Canyon, on the edge of infinity.
