Empire Kids is the friendship between Beauregard Lionett and Caleb Widogast from the Critical Role fandom.


A Show of Scrutiny

As they make their way to the lockward, Beau points out the snake that the man is skinning as the one she punched to Caleb. Caleb asks if she took it on all by herself, but Beau says no. Caleb says that he saw her arms last night, so she most likely took the lead. Beau tells her to give credit to the whole group and move on. Caleb says that he's been away from society for so long and has forgotten how to talk to people, and Beau just thanks him for the complement.

  • Caleb points out that they would move because Nott is a goblin, but Beau says that people who move around a lot tend to be doing it for a reason.
  • Caleb says that Nott wears the mask to hide that she's a goblin, but Beau is more focused on the travel thing.
  • Beau tells Nott and Caleb not to break anything.
  • Caleb asks if they don't know each other that well, and Beau says that they've known each other a day or two longer.
  • Caleb doesn't understand what Beau means.
  • Beau asks Caleb if Frumpkin's an asshole.
