A glimmer caught the maraquan Tonu's attention.
It was faint, but the Tonu had been trained to notice such things. Before long, he had swam over to the source.
Well, well. What do we have here?
He took out his gold trident and gently nudged away some obstructing coral. Upon closer inspection, the Tonu then found himself looking eye to eye into a stone statue's chiseled face. He vaguely recognized the imitation of a Lupe as being that of Jeran. But for the most part, his mind was much more occupied with it's shininess.
He put his trident away and reached for the maractite net strapped to his wave-patterned, cerulean scavengers cloak and threw it over the statue in it's entirety. Carefully, he began to hoist his find up.
The Tonu almost immediately dropped the statue from it's sheer weight. But with some effort, he managed to keep it above the seabed.
He grinned; almost maniacally. The others at the scavenger base were going to love this.
I'm /already/ an expert scavenger, darn it. I just need to, uh, hone my techniques a little more.
Sorry, no luck. The only conversation I managed to overhear was about a crate of cutlasses being smuggled into the city.
I'm going to be the best scavenger in Maraqua! Just you wait and see!
