After he is approached by the lady with the robe, Hiro can't help but to shudder a little bit as he looks up at her, Scylia clearly being taller than him. Nevertheless, her being somewhat of a human to Hiro, he doesn't really get anxious or anything and after a couple seconds of silence, he speaks up, holding the book downwards. "Ah, uhmm, yeah... I have a Chinese hopping vampire friend and.. I am trying to find out as much as possible about her type... and about zombies in general..." He looks back down at the book, his cheeks blushing slightly from the looks of it. This friend he is talking about must mean a lot to him, given how he reacted. Strange.

Scylia gives him a brief and evaluating look as he might be either confused. nervous or both. Despite his young and naive looks and emotional reactions, she does sense a genuine interest in knowing more. She had always studied things like that and any of of the "real deal" was not possible for her until she learned it via studying and such."My dear boy....I think you might be confusing the terms vampire and zombie. In any case, I have plenty of knowledge about such subjects. You could say I have a certain....flair...for it", she says without looking the least bit conceited or anything like that."That kind is quite rare and I have yet to personally see one for myself. However, I think I can help you out...but I think these premises might not be the best to discuss such matters", she says. If she comes off creepy, she certainly has no idea about it and if she did, she would likely not care anyway.

Hiro tilts his head up at the woman in a perplexed manner, responding to her first words. "Uhm, I s-see... Thing is, that's what Jiangshi are described as, but I can assure you that I am not confusing anything... I know for a fact, that they're a type of zombie, but their name translates to vampire..." He said so in an intellectual tone, though certainly not in his intentions to flaunt his knowledge, as it is most likely much more limited than Scylia's. After her second sentence, he looks around, not seeing many people around all that much, so he seems rather confused of what she said just now. "H-How so...? Seems like a pretty secluded place to me, h-heh..." He gives off a slight nervous chuckle, stepping back from the woman just in case she tries anything funny, leaning over to use a single hand of his to slide the multiple open books towards his way, whilst he closes the book in his own hand, now standing there patiently. If this were his first day around creepy people or monsters, he probably would've run off by now.

"I am aware of the translation, but in functionality, components and every other way, they would be seen as zombies. But let us not be bogged down by mere semantics...", she says, seeing no reason to pursue this specific topic as it is not the aim of the conversation and would only serve as a waste of time, which Scylia is not too crazy about at all. She gives a few looks around as well, seeing they are fairly private."Fine, we speak of it here, but you need to keep it very low. Necromancy is not exactly welcomed by the majority. I even had to wrap up my friend here before coming...", she comments firstly whilst peeling off a familiar book off the shelf to her right. The title is rather obscure and itself do not hint towards his area of curiousity. She steps closer once more as she intends to bring her voice down further."What is it you wish to know more precisely?".

Hiro tilts his head at the woman, furrowing his brows and squinting his eyes, though not in a judgmental manner. "R-Really? I thought it would be viewed differently, considering monsters are around and they exist and such.." He murmurs, looking off to the side for just a moment, before shaking his head as he dismisses the topic. Fulfilling Scylia's wishes, he keeps his tone quiet and moves onto the main topic at hand. "Precisely, well.. everything in terms of how zombies function. What they can and can't do both from a physical and moral standpoint.. and an emotional one, like.. love.. b-but not because that's what I'm seeking, o-of course! Just.. curious! I'd l-like to understand my friend m-more!" His face becomes rather red after saying that, only after he said it realizing that it can be misinterpreted in many ways.

Scylia is still not overly interested in letting the young man be fully aware of what she does and studies. So she tries to keep that part much more vague while still able to give him the information and such."Undeads in themselves are not as taboo, but dealing with them can certainly be...so be wary who you tell if you do that sort of activities", she says, both to warn him and let him know there are ways to handle such monsters. She notices his reactions from the last part and either she does not care or she does not recognize what it means."That could take a longer time to properly convey to you. I shall try to make it simple then: They cannot eat, breathe, have no pulse...the usual. There might be some physical hindrances if they have gotten any damage to limbs. It is pretty case-by-case based really. Morality wise....well...depends on how aware they are of the world around them. If they seem mostly "present", they are not very limited on that part. Morality is pretty subjective though. Plenty of people object to undeads even existing, particularly those of strong faith...", she says and pauses for now. The necromancer leans closer to her companion and whispers something Hiro cannot hear at all. The figure then begins to move around, basically keeping an eye out for Scylia, letting her know if there should be anything to be aware of. Finally, she starts again."Sorry about that...my friend Gregory here is just making sure we are not....disturbed. Soooo emotionally...well, kind of the same thing as with morality - if they are very aware, they can experience any sort of emotions someone living can...however, since they are undead it may take a lot more to make them show or even be known to said undead", she finishes, hoping that helped him understand.

Hiro fidgets a little bit in his movements, stumbling slightly as he took a small step to the side, only because he was trying to take out his notebook and pen again from where he stored it earlier, placing the books that he read to the side and at the speed of near sound, he'd be jotting down everything that she says. Every now and then he nods and even mumbles out a quiet "Mmmhmm" or an "Uhuh" despite already knowing some of the things that Scylia spoke of. Still, he most definitely learned something new and interesting, clicking the end of the pen and finishing writing it all down as soon as she finishes explaining, looking back up at her. "I see.. well, my friend, she is... I'd like to say quite 'evolved' in the moral and emotional stand points.. She's pretty aware of the world around her, though she doesn't seem to remember her past.. Still, she is quiet and kind and-.. honestly, I already feel weird talking behind her back, but I hope she will appreciate that I was just trying to find out more about her kind.." He rambles, looking away at a random spot for a moment as he thinks. "Her emotions are quite clear to me, actually.. She gets flustered whenever there's.. s-some sort of physical closure, she gets less shy and cheerful whenever I speak to her.. a-and she gets upset whenever I ask her about--.." He doesn't finish his sentence, looking back up as he seems to have realized something. "--A-ah, err, speaking of which.. she thinks that I don't accept her the way she is, every time I offer her or ask her about what if she was able to eat and drink things, or if there's even a slight possibility of her being able to do that in the future.. I j-just.. I think I was being too pushy in that regard and I should just forget it.." Changing the topic yet again because he's trying not to see Scylia as a sort of therapist, though she can stop him and his words, in case she has anything to add so far. "..You said they have no pulse? Uhm, s-sometimes I feel like her skin getting warmer and not from my own touch, she can also blush on the face like anyone else, and sometimes I even feel a pulse or a heart at her chest, b-but t-t-that really must be either my own heart, or my imagination. M-most likely both.." He's usually not stuttering this much when speaking, but here he is. The topic must've struck something in him, though he doesn't really know that Scylia doesn't care about his emotions, or she just doesn't know.

Scylia is really, really not used to interact a lot with others and especially not very talkative and emotional types like Hiro seems to be. Not because she has no heart, empathy and other such qualities, but she is just way too analytical, focused and the like, to properly understand such outbursts of emotions and ranting on. Still, she listens as carefully as she can, whilst trying to form her own reply in her mind before speaking. She is definitely the type to contemplate their utterings very carefully and may often come off as a person of very few words. So she patiently waits for the guy to finish his flow of words. Of course, not even she can ignore the very obvious signs this is giving off from Hiro."Zombies can vary a great deal from one to another. Of course, there are overall similarities, but other things can change immensely between, like personality or lack thereof...", she comments and pauses to quickly communicate with Gregory real quick before going on again."Ohh, sorry...had to check with Gregory. So, it seems like you are indeed quite emotionally enamoured by this zombie friend of yours. These physical things you have felt with her can very well be real as some specimen can experience emotions and such, though it usually requires a higher "output" so to speak...I think you are best off trying to just accept what she can and cannot do. Chances are that how she is right now is all she does and will ever know. However, I cannot really help you with the emotional stuff a lot...I am not exactly an expert on that...", she says, hoping to still be useful.
