"Yes. He's in his office right now." Said the receptionist.
Mia then led Ethan up the staircase that was near the receptionist desk, and to the second floor.
On the second floor, there was a hallway with many doors. The first door on the right side was an oak door with the words, 'Schwert & Co.' painted on it. Mia knocked on the door and the voice of Clovis Schwert, the leader of a small band of mercenaries answered "Enter."
Mia and Ethan then went inside. The room was officially the office of Clovis Schwert and his band of mercenaries that the he and his band of mercenaries rented from the Mercenaries' Guild, although the inside didn't look much like an office.

He was a good friend of Mia when he was a Constellation Knight because they were both Royal Knights, and they kept in touch even after he retired. For these reasons, Mia believed that he and his band of mercenaries would be the best choice for Ethan
"Well, what brings you here Mia?" Asked the old mercenary.
"My friend Ethan here was recently put in charge of the Barony of Kastell by my father, and he was looking to hire some new knights for his barony. He was looking for twelve knights.
