Have you ever watched a pack of wolves tear apart their prey? I did today, when out with Kima hunting. We'd tracked a deer for a while after Kima only wounded it. Between you and me, she's not the best hunter. By the time we caught up to it, someone else had gotten there first. For a moment I thought they'd turn on us when all those bloody muzzled heads turned in out direction. Big and mean timber wolves, I wouldn't have enjoyed that even if we survived. But while she's not much of a hunter, she managed to defuse the moment somehow.

Like she's some kind of wolf whisperer.

Relationship Note on Calain

When Princess Malorie was returned for us, she was dropped off by a mysterious stranger that left her with a house servant and disappeared before we could thank him. He has a name now. Prince Calain Grayson. He came to visit us the other day and look in on her. We owe him a debt we can never repay, and thankfully he strikes me as an honorable soul, who has learned a lot about the world in his travels and he seems to have every intention to leave the world as a better place than it was when he found it. I hope I can help him in this quest. It is the least I can do for him.

Relationship Note on Malorie

Returning to us 8 years after we thought her lost forever, Princess Malorie was returned to us after the attack, and for many she was was the first bit of good news in the dark months that immediately followed the Tragedy at Sanctum. She spent some time in our ancestral home of Sanctuary and has joined us here in the city of Arx. I will be glad for her assistance. She has really run with bringing the quality of Oathland steeds to the city, and it is good to see her have something to focus on. Also I won't lie, I am glad to have another of the Valardin families social butterflies here in the city. The more I can have access to someone that can cover up and diffuse my mistakes in court the better.

Relationship Note on Talen

So perhaps I did offer a harmless stabbing upon our first meeting, after all it was only an olive fork.... Luckily this charming Sword took it in the good humor it was meant and has become someone I look forward to play many more games with.

Relationship Note on Isolde

After months in Mourning the loss of Queen Genevieve, I finally made my debut return as a scion of the Whisper House. What a joy to have made this first step with non other than the Princess Mirrormask, herself. In one night I was reminded of the many beautiful joys a Whisper can behold. Thank you my beautiful Princess.

Relationship Note on Denon

Master Denon Whisper is an artist as well as a male attendant of some sort, Talen is sure. A man who speaks very little but is seen very often, there's a certain interest the Sword has in him. It's rare to see a courtier who conducts themselves close enough to Talen's standards and here's hoping that the man will prove himself as one of those. Insufficient data, so far.

Relationship Note on Larissa

Mistress Larissa Whisper is a bold woman in the right context and company; one that would offer to stab a Sword in the hand at a dinner table, if he were receptive to such humour. Luckily for the woman, Talen Artiglio is such an individual. The Sword of Lenosia had met her in the Ambassador's Salon alongside company and after a game of truth or dare he had secured on promised encounter with her for the future. The payment was more than generous, a deposit given and to be followed up on the night of the date.

Grand Duchess Esera held a joint event with mind-blowing largesse alongside Lady Calista Fidante. The seaside soiree was in homage to some of the parties found in the south but remarkably more tame than usual to suit the modest tastes of Arx and its citizens. It's still too early to tell how much is too much for these slightly more reserved individuals, but steadily, one step at a time, they will learn to appreciate the charm of such freedoms we encourage.

Good fortune had my path cross with this lovely young Whisper's and she is indeed delightful company. I shall have to invite her to the estate for tea so that we may further discuss future party plans and fashion.

Today I visited Alaric. It's not the first time I've gone to spend time with him and though I thought I formally bid him adieu, he's not physically gone. I can't pry myself away just yet. Like the other times I've visited, I brought him a bouquet of roses and made certain to have the thorns removed since the first time I brought him a single rose it was confiscated by his guards. I also brought him one of my favorite Lenosian dishes; a seafood and chicken stew that is robust on flavor. The first time I brought His Majesty food it was also confiscated until his royal taster deemed it was not poisoned. As if I would poison the king!

I have tried and have epically failed to have private moments with Alaric like we used to have before. At least I have not been escorted off the palace premises! Could you imagine the rumors? I have convinced the guards to escort us into the gardens where they obviously all stay close by. The garden was one of Alaric's favorite spots to bring me. I remind him of the times we spent together here and take the time to explain the different blooms to him. Something tells me he didn't really know what kind of flowers he has growing in his royal garden. They are just pretty flowers and pretty flowers make great gifts for pretty girls. Alaric can seriously make any girl swoon even if he gave them a bunch of weeds.

But if I may be truthful, the man looks absolutely awful. Perhaps it is because I am missing his animated personality, the way his eyes would seem to alight with fire when he looked at me, or the wild gestures of his hands when proudly showing off prize possessions around the palace halls. He loves showing off and sharing what he had with others. Now he just sits motionless, expressionless. It's worse than a statue. He's just a shell of a man and it is heartbreaking. I've even tried reading to him from my Lycene variant of 'Beauty and the Beast' just to see if I could get a rise out of him. I noticed some blushing on the some of the guards but Alaric remains unmoved. Poor soul.

Relationship Note on Alistair

I met Inquisitor Alistair in the most unusual place; The Jewelry Shop. It's perhaps wrong of me to think an inquisitor would not be interested in such things but I was surprised to meet one there regardless. I didn't see what he purchased but there was definitely something in the small satchel he received from the store clerk. I was there merely trying on a few pieces. He made his opinions known as to which necklace I should purchase but I left empty handed. Instead I invited him for a drink and a bit of conversation to which he humbly obliged.

My arrival in Arx corresponded with the Seaside Soiree, a lovely little event on the beaches. I was a touch late, but I dare say fashionably so, and had enough time to make my rounds. The Archduchess and Princess were surely sights for sore eyes, though it seem I may have my work cut out for me. I'll certainly have to make sure the Princess stands out at the next event - wearing the same outfit as a Whisper! If I allow that to happen often, people will begin to think I've lost my touch.

I also must remember to make good on Talen's promise of a hug, no matter how much he resists and pretends not to remember. We are family, after all.

Relationship Note on Alistair

I met this Inquisitor in the Great Cathedral, and that fact alone was a delight to my sense of the world. Our conversation was... intense, and I find I actually rather like the man. He's not one for the Game, but I think we'll end up speaking at length often. And it struck me as well.. my work in bringing the Thirteenth through the world... makes me fairly effective at helping the reputation of the Inquisition. After all, both are imposing, intimidating... and extremely misunderstood.

Esera's beach soiree was a smashing success, and it let me make a business deal. I'm going to have a special event with the Whispers, the details not set in stone yet, but, this city often misunderstands their purpose, and it is tragic. The coming days will need the Whispers and their courtly skills. Diplomacy seems to be on the crumbling edge of chaos, and they'll be vital in holding the world together. I'm going to make the city see them for their greatness, and endear them to me in the process.

Larissa is of the Whisper House and something of a troublemaker. I liked her instantly. She's simply divine, and I took her to the Beachside soiree proudly. She'll be a wonderful companion. Quick of wit and sensually delightful, I'll be the envy of all with her on my arm.

Relationship Note on Gareth

I confess I do not entirely know what to make of the Prince Inquisitor. At times it feels like we could be friends, but I get the suspicion that he sees me as more of a tool than anything else. Even so, our relationship is mutually beneficial thus far, so I have little to complain about.

Maybe one day he'll even smile.

Hammar think Larissa so pretty and nice to Hammar that Hammar doesn't know what to say to her. Larissa wanted to make Hammar Ladies Champion, so Hammar wait to see what Larissa say about that!
