>How well made were these card soldiers, compared to our current dolls?
>...Did we make them?
> Well... They are pretty comparable to your regular dolls. Their firepower is higher than most of your dolls, but there isn't much to them past that. They are even pretty fragile, enough so that your dolls should be able to take them out before they can create a significant offense against you, should you attack. However, the Trump King would end up being more of a problem than the rest of the card soldiers.

> You feel like you remember making them... though if you had to guess, it was either partially Shinki or your Grimoire that helped. Given Makai's possession of materials with will of it's own, it could be that they were mainly from that too. They probably wouldn't be standing before you now, ready to fight with their own minds if you had made them fully. You haven't managed an independent doll yet, and these are acting on their own from what you can tell.
> Or perhaps, they are still just trying to defend your wonderland.

> You praise each and every one of the card soldiers. There isn't an incredible amount of them, so you get done quickly.
> You travel further into your Wonderland. It feels as though you should have your eyes on your book, but the muscle memory isn't enough to do so instinctively - nor do you need its magic right now.

> It seems pretty barren... The few creatures you do spot are simply other card soldiers. It looks a bit duller than you recall it being. The red terrain is simple, unkempt, and uninteresting. It's either your vision, or the sky is also somewhat red...

> The soldier shrugs as best as it can without shoulders, before doing a... bowing motion? It points to it's head, putting a hand against the side of it and waving the hand pointed away from it. The soldier then crosses it's arms in an x formation, pointing to where you came from.

> The card soldier points to one of it's colleagues, nodding. It then points to the way you came, then you, and shakes it's hea-... body.
> The soldier motions more card soldiers over, seemingly communicating with them, before they line up in a row where you can only see the front.
> The ones behind the front one hold their weapons, so as to have 3 jutting out and away from the soldier and to one side, and another 3 doing the same for the opposite side. It reminds you somewhat of arms, though they aren't using their own ones, for whatever reason.

> "Ah, you guys." Shinki looks back to the card soldiers, before turning to you again. "I had them help make sure your world was untouched by the rest of Makai. Though uh..." She looks around the area. "It looks like having no one to take care of it made a bit of things unwell, huh. I wanted it to be just the way you left it, which meant not even touching it myself, but look how it got, ehehe..." Shinki smiles a little, holding her hands together and averting her gaze from you.
