The Karzik chirped for a moment, a slight buzzing sound, and tilted it's head, wondering what the treat was. Now that there was food involved, it was much less wary. In fact, it inched forward bit by bit in order to snatch it from his hand with it's pincers.
Renathan was never sure exactly what mining familiars ate. Sarabi sometimes licked salt, and he did provide her with plenty of those little gem bags that were simple to get in the Labs City, which did seem to disappear one way or the other, but he wasn't entirely sure if she ate those. He also left her traditional pet foods, and those seemed to disappear too. Perhaps she ate everything? Maybe she gave the others to other critters? Who knew.
But he did know that mining familiars at least seemed to try treats. These were a small processed treat, something they found at the market. "Yup, I dunno what it is, but here you go little fella." Renathan says, holding the treat out on his palm. Sarabi stands behind him, looking directly at that gem, and not so much at the creature itself. Familiars could sometimes have a bit of a one track mind.
What all could it do right now aside from go for the treat? It inched forward again and napped at it, all caution to the wind. Sure it could be grabbed, but it didn't seem to understand what danger it was in.
Perhaps Luckily for the little creature, Renathan had long since stopped lunging at creatures that he found at the places that he explored. Part of the reason why was because he ran a creature off one time (one time out of relatively many, he had succeeded several times before as well) and also partially because it was because the critters generally did not react well to being fed by him afterwards for a long time. It seemed to scare them. So while Sarabi stands behind Renathan, waiting for him to get done with whatever he was doing, the russet mammalian simply allows the creature to have the treat, all while using his other hand to dig another treat from the pouch. He holds out his other palm, with the next treat now, and bides his time trying not to scare the critter.
The Karzik nibbled at the treat and then tilted it's head, wondering what the deal was. The man wasn't running away or trying to nab it, it was very confused, but hey, as long as it got treats out of this, maybe it wasn't so bad? Slightly wary, it inched a little closer to sniff at the pouch the man was digging in.
Renathan couldn't help but chuckle at the Karzik's antics. "Aren't you a mess? More?" Renathan digs another treat out of the pouch, and tries to decide what the best course of action was. Should he try to grab it, just this once? Should he let it snack and go? He wasn't sure if he would be able to find a good home for it, but he did know that he might as well try to catch it. He puts the treat in his hand again, holding it out, and then holds his fingers loose. He is planning on gently clasping a finger around the Karzik's leg, ever so carefully, but holding it firm, if he could get it that way. If he was able to without scaring it away, he was going to see if he couldn't tame it using more treats, to make it less afraid. Sarabi rolls her eyes, and goes to check the nearby wall. Renathan was a dolt sometimes, in her opinion.
The Karzik clacked as it nibbled on the new treat, not even noticing the hand around it's leg. This... wasn't a smart creature, it would seem, or it just had really taken a shine to the man. Either way, it was happy, and it would follow the treats for awhile, see what might happen.
Renathan was pretty glad to have caught the Karzik- it had been so long since he had seen one! He wasn't sure if they were rare, or simply if he was too lucky to find one (it really could be either way) but he hadn't seen one since... Well, he didn't know if he was around Sarabi at the time or not. He quickly finds a string to tie around the bottom of the creature's leg, and then ties it to his arm. This was a temporary measure, because they would go home relatively soon to bring it home. For now, though, he wanted to check around for anything of interest, and then momentarily go home. Sarabi knew exactly what Renathan was going to do (they'd done this so many times by now!) and it was obviously annoying to her.
The pair checks for anything of interest, and then momentarily go home before returning soon after.
