There's nothing quite like learning what makes someone tick, figuring out the most interesting aspect of their personality and setting it up to shine. I enjoy finding the use in people, and then making use of it. Does that make me manipulative? No more so than anyone else, I would think. A bit more self-aware than those who deny it.
    Friends are people that serve a purpose you can make repeated use of, for example. They may be good at making you laugh, or making you think, or providing an ear you can safely confide in. Enemies are those that serve as a hinderance to those things that you most want. Enemies have no purpose, and are therefore useless. What do we do with the useless?    Now there's a question that bears some consideration.

Relationship Note on Marcas

I met this man at The Spirits inn and saw him again most recently at Acacia Culler's riverside feast. Both times, he seemed quite interested in getting involved with a brawl or tangled up in a fight. Apparently, he just likes throwing himself into altercations. Then again, he also made sure to unbuckle and remove his sword, so perhaps he's got some sort of honor under that crude, smelly exterior.

Relationship Note on Edain

Prince Edain Valardin, High Lord of Valardin. Nadia has only met the man on a few brief occassions, but his obsession to see maple syrup invade every aspect of the economic market marks him as interesting in her eyes. Certainly, there's quite more to it than that, but maple syrup is his business passion and she can't help but find the chaste dragon to be quite adorable when he speaks so passionately about it or the tales of old about the White Dragons and how they rode out to conquer and vanquish foe alike. It's just a shame that, like her, life has forced him into a mantle of leadership long before he ever wanted it. Despite this, he seems to be adjusting well as time goes on, and for this she feels a kindred soul to him.

Dad granted me some money to start up my own shop after hearing I've delevoped a talent working wood. Perhaps this is his subtle way of encouraging me to hone my sales pitch for the good of the family. I don't know how well I'll do, but making a little extra money doing something I enjoy can't be a bad thing.

... That sounds dirty now that I re-read it.

Relationship Note on Dorian

I met this man at the tavern when I stopped for a bit of a meal. He says he is a Champion. He is charming and nice, but seems to be rather flirty. He is an interesting sort that I wouldn't mind getting to know better.

Relationship Note on Nadia

Squee! The whole city of Arx is charmed by Duchess Nadia Nightgold and who can blame them? From her gorgeous attire, to the way her presence lights up a room when she enters, it has even me near swooning from her company. In a very-very real and serious sense though, she's delightful, isn't she? She's quick with conversation, engaging, bounding with energy yet contrastingly demure and ladylike as its called for. She fulfills both the roles of a female's favorite friend and a man's strongest desire. Whatever competitions men may take for her hand are going to be intense and bloody. I can't wait!

Relationship Note on Ferrando

Ferrando and I met by chance alone, between rocks thrown and evasion tested, between business and banter, between Silks and the Sea. He stood out to me for more reasons than simply being imposing and impressive. He was skilled, fascinating, and had all the right qualities of someone that I look to. Caught up in a world that's quite far from me, should he get free time, I'd like to continue our short-kindled friendship, foolish as it is. He's Tay, after all.

Relationship Note on Everard

Nadia encountered this fine specimen of Valardin nobility during a social visit to the Spirits. He is the leader of the Iron Guard, and embodies all the traits one would expect of a Valardin vassal, but with plenty of charm, wit, and genuine love of fun to round him. It helps that he drowned her in compliments every other breath and handled his whiskey well. She hopes to have the pleasure of his company again in the near future.

Relationship Note on Freja

Princess Freja Redrain is a phenomenal woman. I wish that I had the opportunity to see her and Prince Fergus trade blows when I came upon them in the Training Center, but I certainly hope to at another time. She keeps her stately demeanor, while understanding how things work and her poise is one that commands both respect and interest. There's a sincerity about her that nearly startled me the first time I met her, but its all the more clear how she's led people after sharing words. I look forward to her gracious audience in the future, greatly.

Relationship Note on Audric

A man of outward jovial attitude but with enough sense to cut a business deal where required, Audric leads the Valorous Few. The Sword of Lenosia has expressed an interest in keeping abreast with the company and indicates he would seek to employ the private military collective when the need arises. As sellswords, it should be made clear that some of the best customers are the most well paying and most frequent buyers. The Velenosa are most certainly wealthy enough and rarely are without need for martial backing. Sometimes, just sometimes, more stabbing are needed.

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.
