"Yep, I knew I made the right call when I decided to make for Element City." Avalanche, a NetNavi modeled after the long extinct Smilodon, stated confidently as he nodded in satisfaction. His voice, the distinct sound of a teen aged male's youthful voice trying to deepen as the individual reached adulthood, carried more than a fair amount of enthusiasm. To match the tone of his voice, a broad grin was also displayed on his face. The joyful expression put extra emphasis on his prominent canine teeth which displayed themselves proudly on either side of his muzzle. Entirely caught up with observing his new surroundings, he failed to notice the occasional odd look he received. Some of these fleeting glances were more cautious than others, as their owners focused primarily on his fangs. Their presence could cause others to mistake the action for something more threatening. Admittedly enough, watching one of the most well-known predators of the long gone Ice Age display happiness so openly was an odd sight. However, some of his observers may well have been amused by the very same fact. Not that any of that would have mattered very much to Avalanche either way. After all, the teen aged Smilodon was more preoccupied with getting his mind back onto its original track. There was a reason he made the journey all the way to Element City, and that was to try to find a temporary job and earn some money during his stay!
Ideally it would be better if he could hold down a permanent job... But, he was largely undecided over what kind of occupation he wanted to pursue. There were fields he'd probably do decently with, such as working at a cafe. Or, if he wanted maybe he could try to learn some sort of trade and eventually open up a shop of his own? However, there were reasons as to why he was not fully committed to those options. One of the biggest reasons was that he had taken a liking to the independent lifestyle of being a freelance. He could go where he wanted for the most part and better yet, he could fully explore his interests or discover new ones without being pressured over it. Although, considering he was rather new to being a Solo Navi, he still had quite some ways to go before he'd truly get the hang of things. As it currently stood, he was rather inexperienced when compared to a seasoned traveler. If Avalanche planned on continuing with this sort of lifestyle, then it would do him no good to keep things as they were. One of the most important tools in a freelancer's belt was having the right connections. All sorts of information could be obtained through these networks, such as tips on unexplored areas or mentions of potential job opportunities.
"Ack! I don't have the time to play tourist and gape at everything I see! I need to get going, or else it'll get dark and I won't have accomplished a single thing!" Snapping suddenly out of his thoughts, Avalanche's mind returned to his present situation. But, before he could take off running through the streets, he remembered one crucial thing...his growling stomach. "Right, I'd better go see if I can find something eat. Hopefully it'll be something cheap, or else I just may have to hold off on lunch for a little longer." Giving the top of his head an embarrassed scratch, the light blue-ish white colored Smilodon started to head further into the city.
