Relationship Note on Talen

A darling man, and probably the one person I can absolutely trust to be around Esera. I would even trust him to stand against me, if I ever lost my wits. That makes me feel better. She needs someone like him.

Relationship Note on Kima


I can recall a time where I'd have been angry about losing to a soft noblewoman who doesn't appear to take much seriously. Thankfully, I'm not a younger woman, and thankfully Lady Kima Saik isn't the fool she likes to present herself as. She knows how to use that blade at her hip, so I'm willing to ignore the attention seeking she seems fond of. Should make for a good drinking partner some eveninge. Next time we go a real round, she'll be going down.

Relationship Note on Vercyn

The Duke of House Halfshav is a personable older gentleman. We met while watching Lady Kima Saik's bout with Princess Marian Valardin. He offered a decent wager on 'the redhead,' on no other basis I can discern but pride in that common hair color of men and women from the North.

Some might judge this foolish. I do not.

Someone who has that much pride and confidence in his fellows can win fierce loyalty. His money may be gone - I passed it on to the true victor, Lady Kima - but consistently expect the best, and you have greater odds at receiving it.

I met his bet with one on Lady Kima for the same reason. I had not seen her fight in years. Might I have been backing a losing candidate? Perhaps, but I always support those who support me.

If I had lost the wager, it would still have been a thousand silver well-spent.


Duke Vercyn, I must also note, has excellent manners. He seems quite taken with Princess Valencia Redrain (nee Velenosa), as well, perhaps because she invites courtesies.

Is the North a place where my lord Vercyn has little opportunity to practice such ways? I do not know, but I intend to find out.

Relationship Note on Edain

Oh, bless his heart, Prince Edain just has no concept of how to handle Velenosa women. He's noble, handsome, virtuous... stuffy, slightly pompous, and daft. He will be a long term project, so hopefully he can stop making Esera livid with him by breathing. A very, very long term project.

Relationship Note on Calista

The lovely Lady Fidante, she is a good friend, a confidant, and someone who loves the game, without the cruelty. She is exciting and sweet and I have every intention of seeing her flourish and succeed.

Relationship Note on Arianwen

This delightful commoner is trying to be a courtesan, or so she says. She's obviously trying to climb the social ladder and it's adorable. Hopefully she takes my advice and doesn't -actually- fall in love with a nobleman, especially a Prince. It would only end badly for the poor dear, and she has so much -potential-.

Relationship Note on Brianna

A wild northman who beat up Victus quite nicely. I intend on getting to know her better, as long as she doesn't get -too- dirty. You can never tell with those northern types.

Relationship Note on Eira

A delightfully blunt and crude commoner, she comes highly recommended as a bodyguard. There may be some growing pains, but she has the potential to be good for me. She has delusions of being a landed noble of some sort, and it's charming, even if practically impossible.

Relationship Note on Alarie

A fine young tailer who I hope will help me make Thraxian fashions... fashionable. It will be a struggle but perhaps we will have some success.

Relationship Note on Niccolo

Isolde's father and now I know where so many of her best qualities come from. Refreshingly blunt, and to the point, and not nearly as fussy as I expected of a Lyceum man. He asks hard questions and distracts any attempts to turn the tables on himself but I shall still try.

Relationship Note on Jaenelle

Ah, my cousin Jaenelle, charming and clever, I think she was happy with her arrangement, and it was a real tragedy that she became a widow so soon and at such a young age. I do enjoy the time I spend in her company though, especially when Valerius is around. Having someone else try and prod him down a better path is quite useful!

Relationship Note on Margot

I had the incredible pleasure of sewing my first silk dress for this marvelous lady. She is modest, yet elegant. Yet, I sense a strength in her. She is like a rolemodel of what Thraxian women should become. I look forward to doing more business with her.

I feel the pain of Angus' passing renewed every time something happens that reminds me of him. I wish I could have told him that I finally sent the ring he made me to be fixed, I still regret throwing it at him that day.
    He'd tracked mud into our bedroom and when I complained he'd very rudely told me to 'get used to it', that I'd never fit in here if I whined about some mud. I took the ring and flung it at his head, but my aim has always been lousy. It hit a vase, cracking it down the middle, and in the process, the ring chipped.

I've gotten used to mud, Angus.

Relationship Note on Viviana

The Sword of Setarco is an interesting woman, when she's not busy gushing about her love of sailing she is more then happy to make clear how uncomfortable my presence makes her, 'tingling her spine' as she puts it. I'll be sure to get myself a front row seat for her time in Arx.

Relationship Note on Niccolo

I met with Uncle Niccolo for the first time since the King's Rest began. He seems... different. He's still condescending and enfuriating of course, but he also seems a bit more paranoid. Where has he been all this time? Surely not hiding from the world. He mentioned that troubles are brewing in the northern islands as well, I'll see what I can find out but I do worry that I'm chasing spectres of a heartbroken man rather than actual conspiracies.

Relationship Note on Kima

I'll admit freely that Kima's wine wasn't half fucking bad. Won't win me over from ale, mind, but if I gotta drink wine I'll rather order the Saik vintage than some Grayson swill that tastes like cat piss. Truth is, before I met her I didn't even fucking know there was such a thing as the Baron Saik, let alone that they had any fucking vineyards to speak of. Wonder if her Uncle's paying her a percentage of what she can pull in from Arx, pushing it on every fucking person she comes across?

Speaking of Kima, it might have been a close fight she fought with Marian, one that could've gone either way if Luck had chosen her to take it rather'n Marian, but she still won. Looked good doing it. No doubt she'll have a new collection of useless silk draped perfumed stinking layabouts coming to her for sword instruction. Just so they can all ogle her ass and prance around saying they were taught by her personally.

Relationship Note on Victus

I've crossed paths a couple of times with this Thrax lord, and regardless of his brusque demeanor, I find myself taking a liking to him. He is blunt, gruff, but honest in his feelings. There is a grudging respect between us, I've noticed, and I'm sure it has to do with my experience fighting the Abandoned back in the Lyceum. On my end, I can respect his strength and no-nonsense approach to life.

Relationship Note on Belladonna

Her concern for my wellbeing is touching. Belladonna is as beautiful as she is charming. I can't help but admit that whenever we meet, she brings a smile to my face and encourages the good memories I have of the Pravus family to resurface. Her company when indulging on a goblet of wine is certainly welcome.

Relationship Note on Margot

I don't know Lady Margot well. Her story can be tragic or inspiring, depending on how you look at it. I give her credit, for she was more honest about her feelings during her meeting than I thought she would. Then again, said honesty is not always pragmatic. Still, at this point, she is interesting enough that I'm curious to learn more about her.

Saw the biggest man I'd ever seen today. Now I'm a wide traveled man, but he surely looked as if he had giants blood in him.

It was at the trader's tavern, where Gutthraw that slimy fat old bastard of a merchant dared to suggest my wares were less than reputable, in full public. Why, if I wasn't such a peaceful man, I might just take grave insult at such unworthy and untrue slander. Regardless, in the wake of Gutthraw's embarrassing departure, making the other patrons quite uncomfortable, especially the table next to ours, I was addressed by a lady. Lady Calista Fidante, I'm sure bards write whole epics about nothing but her beauty and the men who kill themselves trying to be worthy of it.

We could've had an interesting conversation I think, she and her goodwoman companion and I. But then comes a pair of princelings, and I decided it was better for my hide to make my departure. Alas, alas. And on the way, that's when I saw the giant.
