After talking with the others, Cale whispers to Hank, "I'm here from a group called the Gray Mages and investigating the sudden appearance of strange new monsters in this area. It seems to be concentrated near the Tournament, but I have not been able to tell which contestant. I see you are a Hunter's Guild associate. I am at your service if you require a translator/defensive mage/wingman for the bar scene."
Remembering something about hunting after dark and/or dangerous creatures on another island, Hank stares strangely at Pooky. He whispers back to Cale, "While I do not have any idea of where the monsters are coming from, I have a bad feeling about that black bunny."
