Relationship Note on Wolbrand

Wolly - He hates it when I call him that but his name is rather cumbersome on the tongue; Wolbrand. WALL-/brand/. It's not the kind of name you would cry out in the middle of passion. Not that I have, but I have totally thought about it. I wondered what it would sound like in the midst of ecstasy, words thick with honey... Ahem. He's my guildmaster. A god one at that..GOOD one. He's a good man.

Relationship Note on Alrec

Admiral Alrec Magaldi is not someone I should talk to. I am not sure if his reputation is larger than it should be or if he is exactly as people believe he is. He is said to be dangerous, treacherous, a man of few morals. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, I find myself in his company on the rare occasion we run into one another in the Hundred Cities Inn or on the beach. I have decided, despite the urging from my cousins, to decide for myself what his reputation should be.

Relationship Note on Kima

Lady Kima Saik. What's there to say about her that I haven't talked endlessly about? She's great! And probably pretty good to have at your back in a fight. I look forward to getting into all sorts of trouble with her once things get interesting.

Relationship Note on Acacia

She is my father's protege -- his flame, with hair bright as one. She is a beauty, and a poet. You would not expect her of the Lower Boroughs. Perhaps I am too far removed from them to know what to expect. She told me she was disposable. Is there such a thing as a disposable person? I don't want to believe there is. Naive, I know.

Relationship Note on Fergus

A skilled warrior prince and a very blunt individual, I find I enjoy Prince Fergus's company. He would make an enjoyable drinking buddy or sparring partner, but I think I ought to figure out a way to actually harm if I seriously want to pursue him for the latter; otherwise I'll just be giving him more and more ammo to mock me with.

Relationship Note on Malorie

A Valardin princess with a notable interest in horses. My interactions with her have so far been pleasant. She has taken an interest in the care of my aging gelding, Theodore, and currently cares for my next warhorse I intend to use when my trusty stead officially retires. I suspect she is a very caring, empathic individual - the world could always use more of those.

Relationship Note on Ophelia

Truly a delight to interact with, I believe Princess Ophelia may be one of the few people in existence who is capable of cheering up the Prince Inquisitor. She also has a penchant for skillful bird murder, which is an asset to any hunting party who wishes to have a buffet consisting of more than one meat.

Relationship Note on Eos

Like the tragedy surrounding my friends, I somehow find it...hard to put words down about my brother. There is the boy that I remember and the man that he has become, and it is no small thing to build a bridge between the two. With so many years that lie empty, I have very little with which to work.

But he is my brother, and for the sake of blood and the memories we do share, I will strive to mend that gap. And he has to know - he doesn't have to be alone.

Where has all the time gone? I really can't keep track anymore because I've been working day and night and night and day and it's starting to take a bit of a toll on me but I'm working tirelessly to perfect this rubicund armor. I'm not there, yet. Not yet, nope but soon. So soon and I can taste it! Can you imagine the best of the best soldiers and nobles all bedazzled in 'rose' armor? I mean, I'd love it. It'd totally match my hair. Soon ladies and gentlemen. Soon.

I need to come up with something amazing for Market Day, which is an upcoming event Lady Dawn has arranged to showcase the crafters here in Arx. I love making making bows, so I've half of mind to do one of those. The hairpins, however, may appeal to a wider variety of people. I mean, come on. Jewelry that is also a weapons? Blades are more popular, but I don't want to make popular, I want to make unique. In the midst of this, again I find myself wondering if I've been spending too much time at the forge and not enough time in a ring; I am not getting any younger. Still, this event is an important one and I gave my word to Lady Dawn, who I rather admire. What to make, though? I've a crapton of parchments full of scribbles and still no solid idea.

Defenestration.

That's the sort of word you have to be a fucking miser not to love. Kima's good for little nuggets like that. Would you believe I've never actually defenestrated anyone? Hah. I can tell from your face you think I'm fucking joking. I'm not. Really, I've never done it. But I do sort of feel as if I should've, at least once.

If for no other reason than to be able to use that word more often.

Relationship Note on Kima

No matter how long we are apart, how far away I ride, or the troubles we have seen - Kima smiles and it is as though nothing has changed in the world, we are still children unburdened with worries racing our ponies through the vineyards. It might be unfair to hope that she never changes, that I will always be able to look at her and remember only a simpler time, but I hope it none the less.

The road to Arx was not kind to Vomas. By the third day he suffered saddle sores and his stomach turned to knots taking him off of the road every half hour if he took more than water and hardtack. Still, he did not complain once and passed the time drawing the plants we passed in his journal, and I am proud of his perserverence. I suspect that my son will not follow the path taken by myself and his aunt. He shows all the signs of a budding scholar; all the more reason to have him in the city with me. The things that he can learn here in Arx, the resources that are available that we do not have in the Saikland Greens, are too numerous to count.

For myself, I do not know yet what Arx will hold for me. Perhaps I am blessed in some fashion that not knowing what the next rising sun will shed its light on has been my way of life for so long. Prior to the king's last hunt I might not have found myself at home here in the city, but a veiled future is as comfortable as a familiar hearth. Fealty and oath will point the way, once I have had time to rest from the road and separate those rumors which have been twisted on their way south from those still wrapped in truths.

Relationship Note on Silas

Sir Silas is so clever! He had the wonderful idea to have a card game at the tavern, and it was one he developed all himself! I'm still not quite sure I remember all the rules, but it was so much fun. He has been very polite and pleasant, and it's so good to have such company around. I only hope I can return his kindness.

Relationship Note on Acacia

Isn't it funny how some people just feel right? Acacia had approached me through messenger to inquire after healing services, and I had an opportunity to meet her a few days later at a card game in the tavern. She's so witty and vivacious, and I had such fun! I look forward to seeing more of her out and about. I have a good feeling about her.

Relationship Note on Dorian

How exciting to meet an actual champion in person in my establishment! And so charming, and dashing, and... goodness! I'm ever so flustered. Dorian has been an absolute gentleman, and I do love seeing a friendly smile in the tavern. His patronage, and what seems to be blossoming into a friendship, is most appreciated.

Relationship Note on Dawn

It's such a relief to see that Lady Dawn isn't too burdened with responsibility to have fun on a hunt. I hope that she, Ophelia, and I will be able to venture out again sometime in the near future to ride and let our arrows fly free. The situation with her brother is a difficult one, and I hope we have an opportunity to discuss what happened soon. I've sworn to avenge my father's death, and I imagine she has just as much interest in seeing justice served.

This week wasn't very eventful. We were able to conclude some business and decided to set up camp on the beach. The first mate tells me the sailor are more comfortable now but this isn't Setarco. Still, Arx offers a lot of opportunity for them to cross-train and some have taken jobs as personal bodyguards. This only helps to bolden our resolve. I feel we have the respect of various nobility and their commoner servants, some more than others because my requests while sometimes ignored never rejected.

Relationship Note on Calain

How many times have I started to pen my thoughts on this prince of House Grayson, only to set the words aside for another day. I was raised in a house that cherishes bravery and valor, where knights and scholars are lauded. What then do I say about the brave soul that brought me home to Sanctum? To say he is my hero is an understatement, I fear. Perhaps one day I will find the words.

    Has it truly been three years? It feels so long ago, and yet, I remember it like yesterday. The Mirror's Masquerade of 1001 AR, where I danced the dance of my life, where I became who I am, who I was always meant to be. No other dance has come close, or meant so much. Will another dance ever fill me with purity of purpose? Will a night ever change me so thoroughly again?
    I often wonder what my family thinks of that night, where their sweet, studious daughter, shy, and reluctant to go out in public sister went. Barely noticed by a Sword, often left to her own devices for weeks, and happy to do so. A girl with a sense of longing for a life that seemed just out of reach, lost in her thoughts watching the surf for hours, with a book in her lap. She seems a dream now, and I wonder if anyone from my past would even recognize me now.
    I don't miss that girl. I bear her no ill will, far from it, in fact. She learned to listen, to watch, and to see the world unlike anyone else. But she was not made for this world. She would have crumbled to dust when her mother's head was sent back to the city. She would never mingle with Northern Princes, or boldly challenge Valardin Faithful. She would never make a mark on the world, happy to stay in the shadows, unnoticed. She had her place, and it is in my past. Now I am something more, something greater, and with the strength of the Thirteenth, I shall make this world, and our people, greater than they could ever have dreamed.
