Relationship Note on Prospero

My cousin has arrived in Arx and I cannot be more thrilled to have more Fidante blood in this great city. Yes, he's much older than I am, more like an uncle or a father-figure, but truly he is neither. Thick as thieves he and I can be now that I am of age and have taken a higher position in the house.

Oh Prospero, you have no idea how my soul is eased by your presence.

I learned a valuable lesson while attending the little fracas the Cullers put together. Who would have thought that in the midst of fast flowing whiskey, showers of silver coins, and the spray of blood one might walk away enlightened?

Anyway, you'll surely hear about the winners and the losers and what I may or may not have attempted to do, so why should I waste my breath repeating it here? For Vellichor's sake?

Well even fucking Vellichor gets tired of hearing the same shit, day in, day out. Your grey hair is testament to that, far more than the conversations you have with me. Don't even give me that look, either. You're not my father, and even if you were that's a look far more suited to Mother.

Tonight, a mudpit was roped off outside the villa. Bonfires burned bright and spirits were poured, and fun was had by all. Nadia and I had agreed to a friendly little brawl, though she insisted she would win. I ensured she was well and sorely beaten into the mud. So much for that 'soft prince' shite that some people were spouting.

The match with Brianna could've went better. But I suppose calling a draw with her was the best outcome I could expect. She's a fine warrior.

Never one to avoid certain events because of their location, I found myself very excited to witness the underground fighting at the Hollow in the Lower Boroughs. There was a lot of whiskey, a lot of shouting and blood, a lot of combat that really stirred my soul. I enjoy fights of all kinds and I have to say, this particular evening was most riveting. I'm going to have to keep my eyes on Marcas Aodh. Sorry that my Lenosian bet lost but it was entrancing to watch the bear of a man not hold back.

Relationship Note on Dawn

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I agreed to meet with Lady Dawn, though I know with certainty that she did not meet those expectations - she exceeded them in every means possible. Dawn is a woman that has taken what life has given her and made something inspiring of herself. Charitable, kind and diplomatically graceful, she is undoubtedly the best person to perform the job as the voice of House Grayson. I look forward to getting to know her better.

Relationship Note on Brianna

Lady Brianna seems to have a good head on her shoulders, her priorites in order, a clever sense of humor, and apparently does not want to see my brother unclothed like the rest of the populace. This is a relief. I hope we will get along wonderfully. We can get used to living here in the south without letting it devour every bit of who we are.

Relationship Note on Victus

He does not appear to be much fond of how I choose to spend Grayson silver. Nor did he seem to approve of my taking part in a spar at the training fields. He looked positively dour when I mentioned, on our first meeting, that I felt he and I had some commonalities in our background.

I would suspect that Lord Thrax does not care much for me if I did not believe this is how he interacts with most that he meets. He is a hard man come from a hard life, with concerns and cares that diverge a great deal from my own. His rough edges are understood.

That said, it takes an effort to not rise to the bait when he calls me Princess. Thrax produces most capable fishermen.

Relationship Note on Donella

If there is anyone who can understand the perils of my position it is Donella. We have called a truce between ourselves. I only hope that Donrai will allow us to maintain it.

Relationship Note on Hammar

Master Hammar. I had thought to make a kind gesture at a card game, by sponsoring his play, and in so doing I appear to have earned for myself a champion. Some might question the wisdom of keeping him in that role, even if it is of an unofficial nature. But, while I have not yet seen him in battle, I must say I find his nature to be simple and charming, and do not doubt that if I did need someone to come to my defense with hammer in hand, I will be well-protected in that instance.

Relationship Note on Acacia

Mistress Culler is the proof that birth does not dictate abilities. She herself admits that she still has much to learn and while that is true of all of us, I believe the lady (I can call her that here without fear of reprisal) has learned more than many would or could, coming from the place she has. Each time we meet, I find myself more impressed by her. Not only for what she has made of herself, or for the way she conducts herself among those she claims as superior, but for her insight and vision.

Duke Niccolo is fortunate I also hold him in high esteem and that I am an honorable woman, else I would do all I could to lure her into my employ and take on her patronage for myself.

Time and time again, I worry that I have perhaps not contorted myself to the best standards of my House. Seeing someone like Lady Dawn doing such a better job behaving.. and representing our interests is on the one hand, incredibly frustrating due to my lack of patience and inability.. but also liberating in a way. At the very least however, I no longer have to even pretend to be a diplomat anymore with her about and I can focus on my work. There are those who beleive I have been rude.. or let us say.. agressive before.

And that was only when I was using my words.. an Inquisitor has many tools at his disposal for investigation.

I have so much to write about for this week. Whereas last week was terribly boring, this week has been incredibly exciting. First, there was the arrival of Lord Eos Saik, Lady Kima's brother. He's been a huge source of entertainment for me this week and I do not foresee this ending any time soon. I so love when I can see a blossoming friendship on the horizon.

The second most exciting thing.. Well, this takes in the place of two forms; First, Admiral Alrec Magaldi sort of waged a personal vendetta against Lady Margot Tyde. This has put me in a strange position as I am fond of the Lady and am friendly with the Admiral. I do hope things can come to a peaceful resolution.

The second /second/ most exciting thing to happen this week was the arrival of my beloved cousin, Lord Prospero. He is a lawyer and while he's more than twice my age, I suppose one could consider him more like an uncle? Regardless of what others might think of him, he is family. He is a Fidante through and through. Just when I was feeling a little more homesick, home has come to me.

Relationship Note on Lydia

One of the younger siblings of the Nightgold family; I recollect her vaguely back in Farhaven, years ago when I stuck near Sherrod as best I could. She, in a much similar way, was (still is) serving as a Lady-in-Waiting to Drea - though I serve the noble family as a whole, at the time it was primarily Prince Sherrod. I don't know her particularly well, but she seems to be a pleasant, well-mannered lass with a bit of a mischievous streak. Then again..most of Redrain is like that..

Relationship Note on Darren

My meeting with the Ruling Prince was brief to say the least, but one thing was confirmed - he DOES exist. I had heard of him so often, yet never caught sight of him around Arx or the Villa. He wasn't quite what I expected - which in a way is good - I had been concerned as to what kind of man Darren is. I can see a bit of similarity between him and Kieran in a way - that smirky grin touched with impishness. I was a little apprehensive that he was going to be froofy and uptight, but he was easily approachable and mostly easygoing. Not what I expected at all.

Relationship Note on Silas

I have been impressed with many of Sir Silas's showings in martial events, by all appearances he is a knight well skilled in the sword, in the tilt and in the hunt. I have no doubt that he serves the Iron Guard with distinction and honor. What was more surprising to learn is what a talented carpenter the man is. He made me a very large table with a map of Arvum carved into the surface and it turned out even better than I hoped. I have even already been yelled at by the manor staff for using the good china as 'strategic markers' because it was so big that I didn't have enough tokens to place them everywhere that I needed. He is truly an impressive craftsman!

Relationship Note on Prospero

Cousin (I think?) to Lady Calista, and a fine man with a sharp mind and quick wit. There is nothing more appealing in a man who humors my wicked sense of humor and brings me a present before I even have a chance to bat my eyelashes at him. You do not find a treasure like that very often. I may just convince Calista to give him to me as a present. In all seriousness, his conversational skills are not to be taken lightly, and I think I shall enjoy the challenge he presents.

Leona and Jaenelle could not be more different, and where Jaenelle is air and water, Leona is fire and earth. She was my staunch defender when I was a little boy, and even though it was an embarrassment to the House that my sister was my protector, I have always been grateful. It is for the best, I think, that she has left House Thrax, though I would never say that publicly, or even in private to grandfather. But I believe if she is to find happiness it will be here in Arx among the Crownsworn.
