Mollusc pod crashed hard into the Namekian soil. Being dead had not improved his hand-eye coordination in the slightest. In fact, he was even worse, even with being awake the whole flight. Guess it was just another downside of being a dead man walking. Mollusc rubbed his head as he pulled himself out of the pod looking around. The planet had not changed since the last time he had been there. This time he was there for answers. He had been brought back and he still had no idea how. His first thought was Porunga. The Dragon who could grant wishes could easily bring him back but why? Plus the dragon could not have been just summoned right? Maybe someone accidentally revived him? That was possible Kayen had hurt people maybe someone revived all those killed by the pirate queen. He'd scanned around sensing for anyone nearby. For now, he didn't pick anything up but he knew to keep himself ready. He doubted his pod didn't gather any attention. People would see and want to know what was going on. So instead of looking around and hoping to find someone to answer his many questions he decided to wait out for someone to find him.
The loud crash at this point didn't bother him anymore than someone sneezing might startle someone, but the power level that was in the same direction absolutely caught his attention. The fact that the crash and the energy were so close by were a bit more alarming than normal as there were plenty of high power levels on the planet at the moment, but none showed up this close to where Guru was usually staying. Thankfully Oboe had left for Earth, but if someone were to show up assuming the Guru was still there, he couldn't simply tell them given the overall situation on Namek currently. Steno dashed in the direction of the power level, nervous of it being higher than his own and unfamiliar, worried it would be yet another attacker after the dragon balls, and stopping not too far from where he found a crashed space pod.
In a matter of moments the door opened and what exited was confusing and Steno had to blink a few times and stare to make sure his eyes weren't playing tricks on him. It looked to be a Namekian, but there were some major differing features that confused him and he wasn't sure how to approach whatever this potentially Namekian creature could be. The moment he saw the person start looking around curiously, he moved in closer, making no attempts at hiding himself, and his power level would have been as obvious now as his own unique appearance, but he didn't speak at first as he wasn't sure what he would have even said, simply watching. After a long pause, his eyes narrowed and he stepped a bit closer and spoke up a bit. "Can I help you with something?"
Mollusc began to sense a power heading his way through it was a power he had never felt before. It was strong too, nearly as strong as he was. That caught him off guard who else could be on Namek. Mollusc stood tall his eyes narrowing at where the power was coming from. Just in case whoever was coming happened to be hostile. When the person arrived he was shocked it was another Namekian. He didn't expect that at all he was under the impression he was the strongest Namekian but this man would have been stronger than him when he faced the Queen. Mollusc wondered how any Namekian this strong just appeared out of nowhere. Last time on Namek no one even close to this strong existed. Still, he'd keep his cool and bowed his head. "I am Mollusc, you seem quite strong I just landed here to try to find some things out, I suppose the first I'd like to know is who you are if that is not too rude of me."
The Namekian looking creature seemed surprised by Steno's arrival and gave him a strange look, but it was hard to tell if it was because he recognized him, thought his physical appearance, or perhaps his power. Steno was feeling similarly in many different ways towards Mollusc, still not sure if this Namekian was even that given the strange form some of his body took. It would have been near impossible for the two to have met previously given Mollusc being off world so often and busy when on Namek and Steno's specific training and location. This Mollusc seemed polite regardless of who or what he was, and Steno bowed in kind, keeping his eyes on the new arrival as he did. "My name is Steno, and you seem pretty strong yourself. I'm not sure if I should say welcome or welcome back. You look to be Namekian but, if I can be blunt, it looks as if some of you is missing." It was obvious Steno was confused by this ghost form, as he had never seen one before, only hearing partial rumors of anything resembling it and never from a Namekian. "Aside from my name, my position is guardian of Guru. I've become a bit of an unwilling welcoming committee as of late with all the new arrivals to Namek. So if you need help with something, I can likely help or point you to who can."
"Steno huh. Can't say I've never heard of you." He felt hed of heard of the man if he was so strong. Of course, he was not only one with questions as Stento seemed to wonder about his ghostly body. "Yes I was a Namekian but I died. Then I came back So i'm a Namekian ghost now. Not really sure how it works so I came here to see if I can find answers on Namek. It is a place of magic afterall maybe someone here could help me." Mollusc would explain to Steno, maybe he'd have some advice on the matter. Stento then mentioned he was the guardian of the Guru. He seemed strong enough which was good enough for now. He doubted anyone would attack the guru regardless. If they did they'd lose the dragonballs which he assumed was what most people came for. "Thanks for meeting me. So you're the Guardian. How did you come to such a spot. I have been to Namek a few times but I never have seen a Namekian stronger than myself." Of course, he could sense he was slightly stronger but because of his ghostly form, his powers were reduced. If he had his full power he'd be able to overcome Steno if he also had the power of a Super Namekian.
He began to reply to having never been heard of but was mentally cut off as Mollusc mentioned he had died and was a ghost. " Okay I don't say this often, but I have no response to that.", just staring at Mollusc with an obvious confused look across his face. "Namekian ghost. I have never heard of that before." He kept looking Mollusc up and down in confusion the more he talked, wanting to simply believe he was lying or confused himself, but the fact that the top portion of his body looked Namekian and the bottom looked like what could only be described as a cloud monster was more than he could comprehend otherwise. "Oh, yeah no reason to thank me for that.", waving the Ghostekian off. "It wasn't my intentions to come and greet you as much as see what the new power level coming along was. We've had so many Saiyans and friends of Saiyans and monsters of varying degrees so I had no idea if you'd be hostile or someone else coming to grab the dragon balls.", sighing heavily at the mention of dragon balls, sounding rather annoyed about it. "Well I've been training in the far east from here the vast majority of my life, which is likely why you've never heard of me. I'm no one important. I was a member of the warrior caste chosen to train into this position at a young age and that's the extent of it. I've only officially been in this position for a little less than a month. So the chances of us meeting before then was likely impossible." His eyes narrowed however and he wondered when the last time this Namekian was here, or how long he had been dead. "When was the last time you were here? Our Guru himself isn't much weaker in regards to power level than myself. Though, he isn't much of a fighter.", giving a slight grin as if it were some sort of inside joke.
