"I'm sorry, Ms Dominic" apologised Rohgen as he started into a polite
greeting ritual. "I'm in charge of this group, here. My name is Rohgen
Czeshin.  I thought this pretty young woman had already seen my wish list to
her satisfaction. I meant no disrespect. I like to try to help my team out
when I can to keep them happy and to maintain a good working vibe." Rohgen
paused uncomfortably to gauge a reaction from both the 'Queen and this "Sal"
woman.

[ooc: what is the colonels 'official' company name -- trying to confuse
matters a bit and slide past the queen whom my boss is without
confrontation, if i can help it -- here's hoping  :)
    Also, i'm not sure if there's a special way the queen likes to be
greeted -- something rohgen might know though. -- maybe a streetwise
roll?...in either case, rohgens attempting to keep polite and keep the queen
from getting angry -- she seems scary to me (maybe not to rohgen but i
personally think shes kinda scary)   :) ]

"I've just been hired onto a group and we've been on a hunt for parts as of
late. We are a new working 'team' so the ground work for our 'team'
relationship is still being worked out". Rohgens eyes unconciously gave a
quick glance at Tina, as he thought of the whole confussing working
relationship of any Gear sport team and the few shady areas of the said
heiarchy.
