Bermann was rustled suddenly as he heard a voice slightly louder than an indoor voice, one intended to get the attention of another. Shaking up like an old man would, he blinked his eyes and looked up, looking around. Once he saw Queen Kay, he smiled. He slowly stood up from his seat and pushed up with his cane. Limped on his cybernetic leg, he leaned on his cane to approach her. "Hello, Lady Kay," he said as if he knew the woman, "You didn't keep me from waiting. I know the duties of a Monarch; they can get quite restless. Sometimes, they need a little R & R," he chuckled under his breath, limping on his cane as he continued walking. He approached the Queen until he was only a foot a way, putting his hand out as if to shake it, and tricking her, as his niche, and clasped her hand. He raised it, and kissed it on the back, just like always. He didn't do much more with that interaction; releasing her hand, he went back to leaning on his cane and continuing into her office. Instead of sitting down, he leaned against the wall instead of leaning on his leg. He wiped his forehead and down his face, trying to wipe away the stress of the new life, and also his face ached just a little. He declined any tea or food.
"I hope you are well," he turned to look her in the eye out of respect instead of talking to a wall, "I know things are a little different but I can't just blurt out the obvious, you see," he chuckled, using his hands to convey his expressions. "But you know me, Lady Kay," Lady Kay being his nickname for her, even though she was a Queen and should be addressed more formally. He reached into his pocket and pulled something out very slowly with his free hand. He then flicked it towards Lady Kay onto her desk. It was an Aurodium coin, one with the Galderra symbol on it. When she would look back at him, he winked, still having that twinkle in his eye as he always did.
"Now comes the part where I ask you where you want my services." With his free hand, he idly reached into his jacket and pulled out some paperwork. Paper. Classy. And then tossed it onto her desk. He'd be more polite and reached over to place it, but that would unfortunately require more movement with his new leg which he didn't want to. Both his right leg and left arm were obviously cybernetics; he didn't get them covered in skin. The document was his credentials, history, and 'past' services he had done with Commenor Systems Alliance. It was made to sound like he was a secretly reactivated operative for CSA. He of course, came with an extensive background of clearances that justified all that, which was actually true. Extensive experience and knowledge in slugthrowers, blasters, he knew engineering, how to control ships, fix them, and command fleets. He had everything his old face had, and a little more under his belt since they last met.
"Now it's time to put my life debt to use, Lady Kay. Ignore my limp, I'm still getting used to this mechanical contraption down here. I can be a soldier, a naval officer. I could be a... an intelligence officer, a secret agent," he chuckled. He didn't have the same sound of Eddaks voice, but it was now the same tone. "But... I've heard you need an Admiral. I'd enjoy helping you fill that role. If you need a shipwright, I can do that do. But I understand if.... I don't think CSA and I, well I was really in it big with the royal family, or the government. So if Fleet Admiral is out of the question, I literally have all the time in the known universe to talk to you, Lady Kay." He nodded, smiling. If at any time she said his old name, he would put a finger to his lips and quietly shhhhh her.
