I received a gift today that is meaningful to me. I find that in abscence it helps but it is no substitute for the actual physical presence. I'm not the whining sentimental sort. In fact, I would say I'm mercurial at best and my moods are fleeting and diverse. Lately I've grown more accustomed to Arx and not living my life as if I am reaving upon the Salt. It's been a slow adjustments but one I'm growing more accustomed to as the seasons turn.

Relationship Note on Sylvie

Such a different person from her sister-in-law, it seems. I cannot deny that there is something compelling about her, but perhaps it is only that we are so different as well.

Relationship Note on Cara

The things you tell me disturb me deeper than I would care to admit. It must be connected, but I don't yet know how.

I cannot say for sure that I'm glad to be back in the city, but I am back and it is somehow a relief. It worries me while I'm away to think my family needs protecting from something of which I do not yet know how to protect them.

Relationship Note on Anze

Anze is the brother of Fergus and Freja.I haven't had much of a chance to speak to him, but he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. A damned good fighter, from what I've been told by peers. The few times we've crossed paths, he's kept me in good spirits with humorous quips. Sometimes he's incredibly insightful when I least expected it, too.

Relationship Note on Victus

Gruff he may be, he's a good man. One just has to be patient, and not be easily cowed by his withering looks and grunted "Fuck off"'s. Ply him with a good rum and whisky and he'll tolerate any lady long enough to make something of a friendship of it, so long as you're tolerable. True fact.

I have recently began my service with the Sovereign's Own Royal Guard, or King's Own more commonly. The Lord Commander seems to be a strong warrior. She strikes me more as the sort of individual who doesn't wish to be bogged down by scrolls, conversations, and niceties. She wants to be in battle, doing her duty, and being where steel meets steel. Talking about possibilities seems to only give her some cause for either frustration or anxiousness, I can not tell.

The Lady Regent also paid a visit. She seems to be a very optimistic sort. She's brought news to the tower, as well as made it clear that she supports our mandate and wishes to work with us. It is likely why she is the Regent and I am not. I also do not smile nearly as often as she.

Relationship Note on Aksel

Sword of Nightgold. Likes his stories and his whiskey, though I hope he is smarter now to know not to wrestle a bear when other drunken asses are goading you on.

Relationship Note on Cybele

Another Shaman, but a Shav, from the North. I don't know what to make of it, whatever it prefers to be called. It is smart and with a good wit about it. I think it will be a good addition to our faith represented in the South.

Relationship Note on Gisele

A dark red bird perches on a flowered branch, its feathers puffed up, its dark eyes half-closed. The branch is a riot of color, a highly unrealistic riot of color in fact. Have there ever been yellow, white, cyan, lilac, orange, magenta flowers all on one branch, nearly crowding out the fresh green leaves of spring? You can hardly see the bird itself for all the flora. Bird looks cozy, though.

Relationship Note on Gisele

I've never met her personally, but certainly /unusually/ understanding about accidental paintings. And her books are beautiful.

Relationship Note on Felix

Do not know the man but everyone reccomends him for a weapon. I sent him a message, just waiting for a response. The plan is to get a high quality steel Thrax harpoon maybe fix it with some good leather and hemp line.

Lord Commander. Every bit as serious about her duty as I am, I think.

Relationship Note on Eithne

Tried to sent a message to Felix the smith but I had to take a shit. Probably wrote a mess the man can not understand. I will find him in person and see about getting a weapon. Bank had a couple silvers from some thing the family had me signed a bunch of years ago. I took those silvers to Eithne and order a steel armor. She has a nice shop.

Relationship Note on Aislin


Desperately sorry I missed the inaugural meeting of the Society! Public apology: if I hadn't been taken up with an unavoidable issue of discipline among some of our men, I would have been there with bells on.

Well-- not literal bells. Vincere tells me I make enough noise as it is.

You and the society continue to have my full support! Adventures!!

A meeting with the Lady Regent and a new member of the King's Own, this evening. Only marginally slipped up, by neglecting to carry the King's Own blade. I still had the Crown's Defender at my side. It didn't seem proper to have that when meeting the regent. When standing amid the Hundred. They need to see me as a leader, now, instead of a former protege.

We began laying out the groundwork for improvements - to strengthen ourselves against any oncoming threats. Pending a Minister, where we will then turn plan into action.

(Would you be proud of me, Lord Dayne? Gloria, Bless. I wish to hope that you would. Yours was the judgement that mattered the most.

One day, soon, my private mourning of your loss will cease.)

Until then.

Relationship Note on Calypso

Took a beating from the Lady General. She is quick on her feet and I could not land a single hit but the advice she offered was getting better gear and complimented my ability to take a sword through the gut. She suggested I speak to Prince Anze from Redrain house.

Relationship Note on Costas

When I saw Costas wearing the sigil of House Malvici at the grotto, a small part of me twitched. Old habits die hard. This man has led an incredible life and I found myself to be lacking when it was my turn to reciprocate. When I shared with him that my work has kept me rather busy these days, he did not hold back from painting a vivid image in my mind that has left me wanting more. Even if such an adventure does not come to fruition, I yearn for more of his tale to be told.
