Vossler seems like a very organized man.
Warnings: Um, none.
Notes: Just a bit of Penelo thinking, and trying to figure out the people she's with. She probably had to do a lot of that at the beginning when she was pulled in so many different directions. Poor girl probably never got a good explanation until Raithwall's Tomb.
Vossler says nothing but Penelo can feel him watching her when they are forced to fight.
He does not leave Ashe's side, because she is the most important person there. He also does not stray far enough to leave Basch's back unguarded, and Penelo knows that is because he is second in some order of importance that is only in Vossler's mind. It's an order that is very important to the man, and one he never deviates from.
Occasionally --when Penelo's footing slides or her block isn't just quite fast enough-- a blur of metal will shoot over her shoulder killing whatever was attacking her. She eventually works out that she is third in his order. She thought Vaan was fourth --innocent civilians and all-- but was quickly abused of that notion quite early. Fourth was Vossler himself, and Vaan was ranked the same as the Balthier and Fran. The Sky Pirates had no importance at all to Vossler.
