Meia meets the party while aboard the ship traveling to Alvanista from Venezia. While chatting, he explains that he's a wandering swordsman who wants to explore the Morlia Mineshaft, the Dwarven ruins under the control of the Kingdom of Alvanista. Though the kingdom limits access, he believes he can use his contacts at the Adventurer's Guild to obtain permission. He then says he is hungry and heads below deck, where the party joins him for an all-you-can-eat buffet. He and Claus F. Lester get along especially well, partying through the night.
