Prompt #4 - The Negotiators
In the age of space and portals, piracy isn’t always just a random crime. Sometimes it’s a tool. Shipping companies often target their competition with bribes under the table to aim the pirates in the right direction. Dealing with pirates isn’t always straightforward– some are as likely to stab you in the back as stab your enemy. Draw or write your character handling backroom deals with pirates or shipping companies. Your piece must include your character and either leaders of pirates, leaders of shipping companies, or various documents.

"You're a demon without morals, so why not just become a pirate?"

The little water fairy asked most curiously, swinging her legs idly without a care in the world.

The white-haired demon chuckled softly at the question, soft amethyst eyes flashing briefly with a mix of derision and amusement as she lazily looked up from her documents.

"Comradery, loyalty and fairness in distributing loot; no matter how scarce or ragtag, any decent pirate crew follows these creeds, at least to some degree. And that all just sounds like far too much of a hassle for me right now."

"So, why not just let them all fight each other, letting me pick up whatever spoils I may desire in the process, whilst still retaining my freedom and independence?"

She smiled confidently, as if she had experienced it all before.

Neveira is acting as an intermediary for a shipping company to bribe a pirate crew anonymously. It's a paid job, but she may have some other plans to increase her gains also...
