I have looked into the great abyss of evil. I have seen the true nature of suffering. I have walked against a darkness so great I think I may never understand what light is again. Our trip was supposed to be scouting, finding.. looking. But what we found and what we did was far more than anyone had bargained for. I cannot describe the horrors, I cannot put words to them. I killed a man.. or something like a man. He wore our shape, he spoke language, but nothing human could have wrought the horrors he had and what he would have done to us. I still... I do not understand what I saw. Abandoned... Shav... I don't know what those words mean anymore.

What frightens me the most, though, is knowing that what I saw is only the very surface of the evils lurking in the darkness. This is only the beginning. Spirits willing, we will live to see the end.

Relationship Note on Hadrian

Quick to conflict. A lack of fear, perhaps? Or perhaps an eager guardian. I hope he finds a true challenge to truly find out.

Relationship Note on Isolde

Such a rare beauty and a true friend. I know I can call on her when my need is great and she will be here for me. I will endeavor to do the same for her always. I envy her grace, perhaps I will spend more time around her so I might learn to carry myself with poise as she does.

Relationship Note on Octavia

Someone with a mind for proper Justice. I hope Sentinel favors her and guides her mind and gavel.

I thought you had left me, but I hear you once more.

Thank you...even if you are vexing in your own ways as always.

Sketches. A few stray flecks of stars. A wolf with its jaws closed around the haft of a torch, sparks scattering in the dry brush. A paintbrush like a torch tucked into the brush, caught, burning. A skein of cloth draped over a skull. A flattened, battered dagger, of a metal too tarnished, old, brittle to be recognizable. Sunrise through a window into a stale empty room, lighting dust motes like embers.

Ack! Of all the times and all the days!

The Marquessa Simone of Greemarch tried to get in touch with me today! I made plans, but something went horribly awry! I think that the messenger became lost on his way to me, as I only heard of where we will meet just now. I went there, but I was told I was too late. I hope she will not hold this against me, I must write her back immediately.

To think, even in this day and age, messengers can get lost within the sick of Arx!

Relationship Note on Demura

I fear you've been stressed too much lately. You've been acting a bit off, and I wish I could take some of that burden. You are so sure that little things can be bit, that you forget to enjoy life. Yes, I agree Rymarr stepped out of line. Yes, I agree he should not have tried to lecture us on what is proper. But no matter how you spin it, he is still our brother. I will stand by you no matter what you decide, but I hope that you will not be so stubborn as father.

The Tourney of the Pridehall Remembrance

... the training has served well, and Prince Dagon, the woman Julea Sanguine and I fought stalwartly.

May Gloria and the Sentinel witness our work.

Relationship Note on Rymarr

It's not that your heart is in the wrong place, it's not that you don't try to do right, it's how you do it all. Brother, we are not the type to look down on others or act as if we have no cares but for ourselves. Our jokes set us apart. Our teasing kept us together. Our shared pain brought us close. But now, our jokes only make you act like you've been slighted. Our teases sound like insults. Our pain, you only care for your own.

You hurt our relationship. Not because you insulted us, not because we feel "wronged," but because you act like we are no longer family. You act as if we are some... zombie-like cult of people who simply shamble through things on manners and grace. That is for the public, not for the family.

Caelis, note to self. Stop biting off more than you can chew. You ridiculous girl. Stick to boats and wandering the wilderness. Parties are simply overwhelmingly foreign to me. I will take my beating in the ring over a night in a gown anytime.

Relationship Note on Niccolo

Though I did not expect this to be the way our families united, I am nevertheless pleased with how things turned out. I will be happy to call you brother, as I already call you friend.

Relationship Note on Deva

My sister is getting married. I always assumed this day would come, but I never assumed she would leave our House. This announcement is bittersweet.

But I have never seen her smile, the way she smiles when she speaks of him. She is finally happy, and I would no sooner deny her of that happiness than I would deny myself the ability to breathe.

I love you, Deva.

Relationship Note on Valerius

I had the opportunity to speak to the Black Sheep of the Thrax family. Well actually he might be more of a white sheep.

You know what forget the sheep analogy, I can't make it work with that family. In any event, the Prince defied my expectations. For whatever my opinion matters for, I think he is a good man.

Things spin ever onward, and though we are mired down by the grief which has paralyzed our hearts and stopped our minds from being able to find solutions, even so the world goes on. The darkness approaches, and like nightfall, it will not be delayed or deterred..we must find the flames with which to drive it back before it arrives.

I don't know the path I should take. I don't know what it is the gods would have of me or what it is that I should do. Each thread that i pull just leaves me with more questions than I had before, each path I follow leads to less understanding rather than more.

I need to find someone who can explain, who understands. But there is no one. And I fear that, there is no way I can find either the strength or knowledge necessary before the time is upon us..

That's two drinks he owes me. If our paths continue to cross this way I may start keeping score in bottles instead.

Relationship Note on Cara

You are -far- too clever for either of our good...but thankfully, you are also someone upon whose discretion I can depend. I don't know what tomorrow will bring, but I know that no matter what, I will always consider you my sister and be there for you..I hope you know that. In all the things I have learned and experienced since I have come to Arx, you and Aislin have been the bedrock of my life here and it is only through the pair of you that I have been able to become anything more than a mere vagabond knight sleeping at the roadside and wandering the wilderness.

Thank you.

Relationship Note on Talen

It's about damn time, now I can stop pretending I don't know who my sister is besotted with. And! I have -more- reasons to tease and harass and generally poke at Talen.

I am delighted.

If you two spawn brats, I'll have you know I'm never leaving an open drink around -any- of them. Ever.
