Relationship Note on Acacia

A decent sort, for someone Boroughs born and bred. She seems reasonable to do business with, though I can't imagine if I'd ever utilize her skills or connections. Perhaps in some information respect, but even then, who knows. There may be better options. But, she's nice enough, but time will tell.

Relationship Note on Victus

LORD VICTORY! We drank, he lost, we won, we drank, and stories. O STORIES! How they were told, are told, will be told - He knows The Greybacks for what We are! He knows, and because he knows, The Stick, Rabbitsfoot and I would surely drink with him again. Over bodies, too! Preferably live bodies. Live bodies with tits. Not dead bodies. I abhor violence, you know. Unless it's the good kind where I win.

Relationship Note on Gareth

Scarface. Bellhound. Shroudsinger and, he reminds me of a little boy I met, years ago, years and years and years ago. I met him in prison, you know. The little boy, not Gareth. Or was it Gareth? Was it prison? Oh right, the little boy: He sold his horse for some magic beans, instead of silver, and his whole family starved to death the winter thereafter. Lovely story, innit?

Relationship Note on Morrighan

Red. Red like Blood, Red like Fire, Red like Wine and her voice is something to DIE FOR! Everyone looks, and sees a savage Prodigal servant to Redrain, and maybe they are right! Maybe. But I look, and I See, and...O Red, We shall roll the dice!

Relationship Note on Acacia

The Interchanging Door, Down a Corridor of Screams; my most beautiful Cousin not-cousin! Cutter to the core, Cutter? Did I say Cutter? I meant - Culler. Culler, yes. She's a Culler. Not a Cutter. That'd be silly. Her words are like silver, her touch is like whiskey, and O! O, how her strength is like that of a rightly made road. A road, that goes right into the Lower Boroughs.

Relationship Note on Talen

Master Talen Artiglio, ward of House Velenosa and sword of Lenosia. Now this is an interesting man. For one, he's very skilled in the art of war and battle and yet he chose to cheat at a tournament. There was no real reason to do it other than to let others know he's capable of such. I'm led to believe this is precisely what he was setting out to do. He also enjoys sending philosophical messengers. I do wonder what else goes on in that head of his.

Relationship Note on Rohkir

Prince Rohkir of Redrain is an unexpected surprise. He's a beast of a man given his height and brawn but there is so much more than simply his physical prowess. The man exudes confidence and charm in a contrasting manner to Victus Thrax; Initially that is precisely what I expected from Rohkir. I enjoy the company of this gentleman.

Relationship Note on Jaenelle

I don't quite know Princess Jaenelle Velenosa as well as I'd like but I do know she is Valerius' sister. I promised the Thraxian Prince I would reach out to his sibling since she's a recent widow, though, from what I have heard, she's been friendly with Prince Rohkir of Redrain. She is lovely though. I can see us becoming fast friends.

Relationship Note on Valerius

Prince Valerius Thrax is quite unlike the rest of his family and there's something about him that draws me to him. He's flirtatious, adventurous, and naturally mischievous. I can never say I've had an unpleasant or boring time with him. One could say he's rather inspiring.

Relationship Note on Niccolo

The Velenosian Statesman is not only the current Duke of Lenosia, but he is also the father to Arch Duchess Esera and Princess Isolde Velenosa. He is a difficult man to read but one that truly piques my interest. As he is older, he is surely wiser and has certainly seen things in his day. I'm curious to learn more about the past from him.

I do hope that I am backing the right person by supporting Prince Gareth's investigations into the fate of his Majesty. He seems to be the ideal person to discover what happened but his, to put it mildly, abrasive personality and tendency to launch into immediate threats is not ideal. On the other hand that probably ensures he is not seeking the throne for himself with any prospect of success.

I do not even like birds very much, but certain nobles do seem to feel that the whims of their not even particularly close relatives are infinitely above the dignity of the gods. What a very odd subject to choose to try to press on and why do they feel as if the Faith can be treated like perhaps a wayward merchant family? Is the Tehom worshipping sect in the south that much in the pocket of the ducal houses?

Relationship Note on Niccolo

Duke Niccolo seems utterly intent upon backing his niece's... Odd fixations, which surprises me, he does not seem stupid. Whilst I can understand wanting to maintain the prestige of one's house this does not normally extend to threatening and trying to browbeat figures in the church should they fail to actively pander the inanities of relatively distant relatives. What a thoroughly unpleasant man.

Relationship Note on Ophelia

I have found myself writing about nobles who exemplify the qualities they should have, now I appear to have encountered one who wallows in negative stereotypes. Whilst I am sure she is quite adorable to the right person she also appears to be quite mad and utterly self absorbed, unable to comprehend a universe which does not revolve around herself.

Relationship Note on Arianwen

The Sword of Lenosia first met Mistress Arianwen at a dinner in the Velenosa Estate, the woman only having begun her metamorphosis from tavern wench to courtesan. Still in training, Talen has made it clear he thinks she is not yet ready. That said, during his observation of her progress he has bled advice in how she might improve. Perhaps in time.

Have you ever had a dream where, upon waking, you don't immediately realize you've returned to reality? Now I don't mean something fantastic. Or maybe I do, but we'll get to that. Anyway, I slept in today. Maybe you can't appreciate that, but as someone who's relationship with sleep has grown tenuous at best, let me tell you, it was a marvel. I slept in, and when I awoke I was so comfortable I didn't want to move a muscle. Then I remembered.

I remembered that the dream I had wasn't real. Couldn't be. Because Damaris is dead.

Have you ever seen someone die, scholar? Have you ever even seen a corpse? I don't begrudge you if you haven't. I've seen them, made them. You know this. Let me tell you about Damaris, and how she died.

All these soirees happening around Arx - she would have loved them. I dare say she'd take to them even better than I. Damaris was the type of woman who always had all the right words, and you never felt as if she was having you on. Sincere. She was the youngest daughter of the ruling family in Caith. Beautiful, with these dark thick curls of hair and equally dark eyes. A little smattering of freckles over the bridge of her nose. Gods, how her mother hated that she chose the path of the sword.

I suppose the woman must hate me, but I couldn't tell you for sure. I've never reached out to her. Out of shame, you see. Are you surprised I know the word? Well, how can I not, when all their bodies lie unburied?

...I don't much feel like talking about the rest right now. Not even the prospect of scandalizing you with tales of morbidity has its allure. Another time, perhaps.

Relationship Note on Gareth

Prince Inquisitor Gareth Grayson is a man that is dedicated to his career in a way most normally aren't. Talen's respect for this has been noted as he himself feels much the same, the duties of being a Sword and serving the Velenosa family as all-encompassing as they are. It is Talen's belief that if there is ever to be any foul matters in Arx, the Inquisition will be the ones to find them.

Relationship Note on Margot

I realize that Lady Margot perhaps is just entertaining my boldness, but she carries herself in a particular demeanor which draws people to her. The fact that she's acquiesced to grant me audience at some point speaks wonders to both her temperment and grace. It's been awhile since I've been at sea, but there's a memory there which she invokes. In every situation I've found myself in, and there's been several, her name has never come up without the highest standing and praise. It certainly makes one get to know her a little better.

Relationship Note on Rohkir

Prince Rohkir Redrain was a man of no small stature and while he not a direct heir by a long shot, he nevertheless held Talen's attention. This may be in no minor coincidence to the fact that there was an expressed interest in the Grand Duchess Esera and so, as an ever-watchful and protective sentinel of the Velenosa family, Talen was curious of the man and his motives.

Relationship Note on Kima

Lady Kima Saik had not been known to Talen prior to his introduction to her in Arx. First met on the night of a masquerade, they had only been further acquainted from time to time for brief periods at various social gatherings. During the TORnament of Roses hosted the Fidante family, however, they were to face off in a joust. Talen has no qualms against throwing caltrops under her steed and for it, he was disqualified. It is Talen's belief that while Arx may not appear to be a place for southern trickery that the lady herself has lost the arguably healthy pananoia that serves individuals so well to survive in the Lyceum.
