The courtyard of the guildhouse, pretty much right in the center of it. A fairly simple but beautiful bit of outdoors, with several tables scattered around, a small fountain placed near the doors, and a slightly smaller building leading to the training area off to the side. Right in the middle of the area is a person-sized statue of a beautiful woman dressed in the garb of a traditional Arkyrie, with a light armor/robe combination, a small crown around her head, and a pair of sandals on her feet reaching to her knees; this statue honors a young warrior named Lenneth, an Arkyrie who saved the world not long ago at the cost of her own life. This woman also happens to be Lina's mother, and was an acquaintance of the previous Guild Leader, Roland. Perhaps this is why he had a statue of her made?

Lina slowly approaches the statue of her mother. She had come by to visit, and this clearly wasn't the first time she's done so. As she stands in front of it, she slowly waves with a bit of a sad smile. "...Hi, mom."

Syntax stands behind and to the side of Lina, gently resting a comforting hand on her shoulder. She had come along enough times that she knew of the pain it brought Lina.
"Hello, Lenneth. Mother." She says with a respectful tone.

"... I didn't bring the kids today. I hope you don't mind. They've been doing fine, though." She begins, speaking as though the statue in front of her were listening. She moves her arm around Syntax.

Syntax moves to stand closer to her, their shoulders touching. There wasn't much for her to say or do, aside from what she could to make it easier on Lina.

Lina has managed to keep up a smile so far, at least. "Styla's been learning a lot these days. She's still very inexperienced, but maybe one day she'll grow up to be as good as you, mom. ... Well, even if she doesn't, I'm very proud of her. And of Luke too, of course. I know you'd have loved them..."

Syntax silently puts her arm around Lina, to match her own.

"And I... I hope you'd have felt the same for me, too..." She continues, much quieter than before as she looks down.

Syntax just gently rubs her side comfortingly, having no words just yet.

"I wish I could've gotten to know you, mom..." She still has the smile on her face, though it's noticably breaking.

Syntax remains silent for now, unwilling to interrupt Lina's silent conversation, but she continues to hold her gently. She expects that she will have to hold her a bit closer here in a moment.

She looks as though she's about to say something else, but the words won't come. She looks back up, her smile slowly fading as tears begin to form in her eyes.

Syntax waits but another moment.

She manages to get out one last thing. "I... I'll always love you, even if I've never met you..." And with that, she collapses into Syntax's arms.

Syntax hugs her close, placing one hand gently on the back of her head and the other around her shoulders. What words were there to say, when this contact was most likely infinitely more soothing.

The sounds of sniffles and sobs can be heard on Syntax's chest as Lina hugs her tightly.

Syntax begins to whisper soothingly to her as she cries into her chest, gently stroking her ears and hair.

Lina struggles to compose herself. She'd been through this many times before, and yet she couldn't control herself...

"It is alright, Lina... It is alright to cry..." She says gently, wanting to take away the possible shame of it.

Fortunately, it doesn't take very long for her to calm down and simply nuzzle into Syntax's embrace.

After a moment, she chances asking, "Are you feeling better?"

"Good..." She gently scratches Lina's ears.
