Dyan was on the hunt. She'd tracked down a few spies during their last battle and had hunted down that Cardassian scientist but that had been a week ago and she'd had little to do since. Her usual routines at work had been dull and uneventful and while the Cardassian had been an okay experience that had certainly satisfied her at the time, she'd had little action since beyond self pleasure and she wanted more now.

Luckily Aldea was a prime place to find prey. While a good sexual partner was acceptable she'd take a fight too, or both. The Klingon area was always an option for one or both of those but there was no hunting involved in that and for Dyan that was part of the thrill, the experience, the pleasure.

Scanning the crowd as she made her way through the bustling streets, she was rather disappointed at the apparent lack of candidates, perhaps it was due to the time of day? Feeling frustrated in more ways than one, she was about to call it a day and head back to the ship when something...or more accurately someone caught her eye.

Wasn't that the Trill pirate they had captured and had been locked in the Brig only yesterday? The Asurian was pretty sure that it was, what was he doing here? Had he escaped? Surely he must have, there was no way the Captain or anybody else would have let him go, it was possible but unlikely and if they had let him go then surely there would have been a report issued to the Security staff that that had been the case and she certainly hadn't received such a notification.

The Trill was making his way through the crowd, clearly going somewhere and Dyan couldn't afford to lose him. If he had been released and she caught him it was a simple misunderstanding and if it wasn't then she had just caught an escaped prisoner! A smile slowly spread across her lips.

Keeping her distance, Dyan started to follow the Trill, making sure to keep a fair distance between them without falling too far behind to lose sight of him. She pursued him through the streets until they hit the marketplace, where he would stop and look at various stalls, with her pretending to look at stalls close to her as well, just in case he happened to glance around in her direction.

Dyan felt a rush of adrenaline and couldn't help but smile, after nearly calling it a day, the spotted man had unknowingly made her day, she thought. Glancing back, she saw the man stop looking at whatever items that particular stall had been offering and continue his journey.

Resuming her pursuit, she allowed herself another smile. The hunt was on.

What a difference a day makes. That was the thought currently running through Zaryn's mind as he wondered the streets of Aldea. After so long being undercover as a pirate on this planet and in this system, he had finally be reassigned. To the Theurgy of all places. After his long talk with Captain Ives, listening to what s/he had to say as well as confirming all of those details with Admiral Andersson he was going to be serving on an actual Starfleet ship for the first time in...he couldn't remember how many years. Although what exactly he would be doing on the ship given his skillset he had no idea.

Regardless, he had been given his new assignment and he would do it, but for now he had to finish securing his safehouse, upload all the information he had collected over the span of his assignment, both to Starfleet and any relevant information to the Theurgy, knowing that there were a few things that they would more than likely need to know about.

He'd been on Aldea long enough that he could walk to most places without actively thinking about where he was going and soon found himself cutting through the marketplace. Occasionally stopping to look at various stalls and what goods they were selling. Zaryn liked Aldea, it reminded him a lot of Risa and as far as assignments went, wasn't a bad one at all. He got a nice beach view, good food, the locals were friendly and plenty of opportunities to surf.

That being said however he had rarely used the SI safehouse he had been assigned once he had integrated himself with the pirates, often staying there. Only really going back there for his scheduled check in's and to upload any new information he had discovered on either the pirates or the Klingons.

Having moved from stall to stall, checking out more knick knacks and trinkets, mostly lost in his own thoughts, he vaguely became aware of a feeling he knew all too well. The feeling that he was being watched. He was a professional however so he played it cool and continued to act normal, approaching another stall and picking up a small statue, rotating it in his hands as he examined it.

The statue was a small wooden carving of an Aldean kneeling, arms spread wide and looking skyward. "Excuse me, could you tell me more about this carving? Why is the Aldean praying? I assume they're praying, or is it something else?" he asked as he repositioned himself next to the stall's owner, allowing him to look out over the marketplace, his eyes scanning the crowd to see if he could spot anybody acting out of the ordinary.

"Well sir you are correct, the figure is praying to the Gods asking for....[/color] the merchant started saying, not that Zaryn was paying him any attention, not that his body reacted that way, nodding almost on instinct to look as though he was hanging on every one.

At first he couldn't see anything that really jumped out at him until he caught the sight of someone in a hooded outfit several stalls back. At first there was nothing unsual about the figure, but every now and then they would look up and over in his direction before looking away again, returning their attention to the stall. Zaryn returned his attention to the merchant occasionally as well to continue his own act, occasionally flicking his gaze back over at the figure he had spotted and sure enough, they glance over again.

"...And by the end of the season he had a full field of crops for the harvest." the merchant finished explaining, blissfully unaware that not a single word he had said had gone into the Trill's head.

"Facinating, I'll take it." Zaryn smiled, letting the merchant wave a device over his Aldean communicator/tricorder/wallet thing attached to his jacket as it deducted the funds from the device.

"Thank you for your custom." the merchant smiled "And feel free to come back again!" he added before moving off to speak with another customer.

Pocketing the small figurine, Zaryn turned on his heel and continued moving through the market, stopping at other stalls and taking the opportunity to look back at his potential stalker. Sure enough a few stalls back, this time on the opposite side of the pathway to him was the hooded figure, again taking a few opportunites to glance over at him. Whether or not the person followed him had seen that he had seen them or not was a different matter entirely, but there was always one way to find that out.

Walking away from the stall, Zaryn maintained a steady pace and smiled as he saw a larger group of people just up ahead and made his way towards them, lowering his head slightly so that could more easily blend in and lose himself within it.

Time to see how good a tracker his new admirer really was.

From stall to stall they went, the game of cat and mouse continuing as Dyan followed her prey. She was keeping a good distance from the Trill, while maintaining visual contact at all times. She observed the man as he stopped and examined various trinkets on the stalls. Whenever he stopped, she would stop and pretend to be looking at whatever wares were being peddles by the merchant who owned the stall. Junk mostly as far as she was concerned and flat out ignored any merchant or civilian who tried to engage her in idle chit chat, she was a woman on a mission.

Once or twice during her pursuit, she would see the Trill glance back towards her, wondering if she had been spotted or not, yet so far it didn't appear as though she had. The small smile that spread across her face beneath her hood was most definitely one of pride, the silly pirate had no idea what fate awaited him when she eventually got tired of the game he didn't even know he was playing with her.

No sooner had Dyan had the thought however, and the Trill had taken off again, heading towards a larger group of people. Not only that but he had lowered his head, making it a little harder to spot. She had been made. Despite this however, Dyan simply chuckled and continued the pursuit, feeling a new tingle rush through her entire body. The prey had caught the hunters scent it would seem, this would be fun.

While the Trill had clearly tried to lose her in the crowd, he hadn't made it deep enough within the mass of people before she caught sight of him again, both hunter and prey being absorbed into the larger group.

Dyan would have to give the pirate credit, he was pretty good, several times she had almost lost sight of him. Unfortunately for him however, almost was not good enough when it came to her as both continued to duck and weave through the traffic of bodies, heading deeper and deeper into the marketplace where even larger crowds or people were gathering.

As he ducked and weaved through the throngs of people in the marketplace, he was confident that he had managed to give the person following him the slip several times, only to catch sight of them still pursuing him. Whoever his mystery hunter was they were good, another spy perhaps? Although why anybody would be following him, the Trill had no idea.

As far as he knew his cover hadn't been blown and most of the pirates, he had been working with had been either caught or killed during the Theurgy crew's rescue mission, the same one that had led to his capture and subsequent reassignment. Zaryn supposed it was possible that one of the pirates had survived and spotted him, but tailing someone with the talents of a fellow spy were most definitely not their style so he doubted it was one of them.

As he continued meandering through various people, he quickly ducked down one of the side streets and quickly sprinted down it, smiling when he saw a small ladder leading to the roof of one of the buildings. Quickly climbing it, he positioned himself on the roof and waited, wondering if his pursuer had spotted him take the turn and would follow him down here, if so, hopefully he would be able to get the drop on them, or perhaps even begin following them instead. The next few moments would certainly give him his answer.

Dyan followed her prey feeling the excitement building within her as she ducked and weaved her way through the people around her, her gaze never leaving her target for the most part, although admittedly there were a few times when she lost him briefly...but only briefly before picking him up again. She had to admit that he was good, really good. The last few people she had hunted down hadn't been nearly as interesting or challenging to track down but this one certainly was making her work for it and she liked that.

Walking through the busy market street however did mean that occasionally some passer by would bump into her or step in her way, obscuring her view causing her to curse under her breath and give said individual a look that would kill, especially if it cost her view of her target. A group of people earned themselves the glare as they walked out in front of her causing her to lose track of the pirate.

Quickly scanning the crowd she was almost positive she had lost him when her eyes caught him ducking down one of the side streets. Making her way through the crowd she entered the smaller streets a few seconds behind him and narrowed her eyes. The street was a rather long one and yet it was empty and there was no way that her prey could have sprinted the entire length of the street in the brief moment it had taken her to enter it.

A grin made it's way onto her face as she slowly started walking down the path, her senses on high alert as her eyes scanned every nook and cranny of the street as she went. Feeling her adrenaline pumping in her veins this was her favourite part of the hunt, knowing that the one she hunted was close by, either hiding or observing her as she stalked him, the game of cat and mouse continuing.

From his position on the roof, he watched as the hooded figure made their way into the smaller side street and started slowly and carefully make their way down it. The way they moved told him that whoever they were, they were clearly well trained based on their movments and how they were carefully checking every space they could. All places except above them it seemed.

As the figure got closer, Zaryn noticed that the clothing they wore made it hard to tell whether they were male or female nor what species they were. If he were to take an estimated guess whoever they were were about 5'7 in height but that didn't help much as he knew both men and women who were that height. However as the figure moved below him, he noticed the way their hips swayed as they walked. So it seemed it was a woman following him, interesting.

The spy continued to follow her from above, quietly hopping from rooftop to rooftop observing the woman as she continued carefully making her way down the street. It didn't take long before they reached the end of the street. The figure stopped and glanced to her left and her right, trying to figure out which way to go.

He wondered which way she would go only to curse when she instead look up and spotted him. Crap. he cursed and took off to the left hopping from roof to roof, wondering just how long this chase was going to go on for now.

Dyan's eyes narrowed as she made her way down the small street, she couldn't see her prey but she knew that he was close, every fibre of her being was telling her that, not to mention she hadn't lost sight of him long enough for him to simply disappear completely. There were a few walls and a large dumpster that he could be hiding behind...or even in for that matter.

Creeping quietly forward, she checked behind every wall, dumpster, trash can and everything else that she saw but her target was nowhere to be seen. Despite this she couldn't shake the feeling that she was being watched, even as she reached the end of the street. Glancing to the left and right, she couldn't see him and growled under her breath. She knew he was close by, she just didn't know where.

 Glancing around again, something compelled her instead to look up and couldn't help but smirk under her hood when she saw him looking down at her from the roof of one of the buildings to her left, he'd been watching her the whole time. Impressive.

Her smirk grew even bigger when, upon being discovered the pirate took off running, the chase continued. Keeping her eye on the rooftops she pursued him as he leapt from rooftop to rooftop above her, this was the most fun she had had since the battle on the ship, pirate or not he was worthy prey and one that was giving her a challenge...still despite this he would not win, oh no she would catch him eventually.

As she weaved her way through more people, she again smiled when she noticed that there were only a few more buildings left before he was out of them, in which case he would either have to double back or find a way down, either way she would soon have him.

Sprinting along the roof, leaping from rooftop to rooftop wasn't exactly something he hadn't done before, but at least those other times he knew who was chasing him and why, this woman however was an unknown and one that was keeping up with him pretty well, even though the traffic of people down at street level was pretty crowded, at least she had been every time he had spared a glance down there.

It didn't take him long to realise that he was running out of rooftops and would need to make a decision, either hope there was a way down or double back. If there was a way down, his mystery pursuer would be right on him, if not waiting for him at the bottom, and if he doubled back it could be the same thing at the other end as well. Nor could he simply stay where he was as she could just climb up and meet him and a rooftop fight wasn't exactly something he wanted.

Landing on the final rooftop he was relieved to spot in front of him a bit of rope hanging loosely from something just out of view just beyond the edge of the roof. Hoping that it was part of a sign or something, he threw caution to the wind and leapt over the edge and reached out for the rope, grabbing it.

Relieved that the rope was in fact connected to another roof on the opposite side of the street below him, holding up a few signs for the marketplace. Unfortunately for him however, it was clearly not designed to take much weight beyond said signs and heard a loud snap, as the end of the rope behind him broke away, dropping him towards the ground.

Lady luck appeared to be on his side however as the other end of the rope remained attached to the other building, allowing him to swing down to ground level. Landing with a grunt, he immediately started sprinting forward, ducking and weaving between the crowd of people, all of whom had turned their attention toward him, some in awe of what they had just witnessed and others cursing him for ruining the sign.

Not that the Trill paid much attention to them as he knew the woman chasing him was hot on his heels as he ducked down another street and continued running, opting to start making his way back towards his safehouse, hopefully he could lose her on the way.

Dyan moved gracefully through the throngs of people while keeping an eye on the figure above her, watching as he leapt from roof to roof and pushed herself a little harder to reach the last building when he did, eager for the end of their little game of cat and mouse. She was a little behind him and was feeling rather angry with herself for failing to match him, although that soon changed when she watched him leap from the last roof and grab hold of the hanging sign, watching him swing down to street level.

Had she been ahead of him she would have stopped and been waiting for him to drop down or turn around, which would have put her at a disadvantage, however since she was a little behind him she managed to maintain her speed and stay in the chase. She also found herself smiling at the display beneath her hood. impressive she thought as he hit the ground running and continued running, at least the gap between them had closed, she was only a few seconds behind him now by her estimation and rounded the corner into the street he ducked down shortly after, managing to keep an eye on him this time.

Down several streets they went and were pretty equally matched for while she wasn't gaining on him at the moment nor was he increasing his lead over her. Evidently they were both matched for stamina which made her smirk at a thought about what other areas stamina related they might match at, too bad he was a filthy pirate...then again she could always use him before handing him over to their security team.

Shaking her head to dismiss those thoughts as they turned another corner she cursed when she ran into several Aldeans, which slowed her down. Ignoring their petty complaints she pushed on, scanning the crowd to spot the illusive pirate, almost missing him before spotting him ahead of her and starting sprinting again, pushing her way through several people to help make up the time she had lost., unfortunately in doing so, she got tangled up in a few of the fools who tripped over right in front of her and by the time she had untangled herself she'd lost sight of him.

Unwilling to give up the hunt just yet however, she pushed forward, hoping to catch sight of him again.

Zaryn had to admit that he was getting just a little frustraited by the fact that he couldn't seem to shake his mysterious pursuer, whoever they were and he ducked, twisted and turned his way through the numerous pedestrians that littered his path. Despite the fact the streets were still crowded with people, he couldn't shake the woman behind him.

She was persistant he had to give her that. Persistant and relentless evidently. Managing to manouever his way through another group of people, Zaryn turned down another street and sprinted forward a little, taking a moment to glance over his shoulder to see the hooded figure still on his tail and cursed as he rounded another corner into another street, just narrowly managing to avoid colliding with a large group of people.

With a quick apology he took off running again but heard a commotion behind him and glance over his shoulder, just in time to see his pursuer hit the floor, having been unable to avoid the group of people that he had. Smiling he disappeared into a larger group of people and lowered his head, taking the opportunity to catch his breath.

He watched the woman pick herself up and start moving again, this time though clearly scanning the crowd to try and find him. He allowed himself a small smile when she walked passed him and kept his eye on her as she continued walking forward, allowing a few paces to seperate them before he left the group he was shrouded in and started following her.

It would seem as though the hunter had become the hunted.
