Relationship Note on Edain

I met Edain at the Ambassador quite by chance, he was very sympathetic to my plight, both the hang over and the frustrations with trade negotiations. Still I wonder, is he really as kind as he seems? Can someone so seemingly nice and guileless really survive let alone prosper as a High Lord?

Relationship Note on Niccolo

Uncle Niccolo has barely changed from when I knew him as a girl. Still impossibly proper, still you can't deny his abilities for all I might tease him. Someday I will get him to show his human side, after all he's the man who left his family and risked it all for love, there must be more behind the mask.

Hosted a card game at the Hundred Cities Inn, turn out was good but very varied. With fur covered northerns mixing with commoners and more refined individuals. Got to meet Kieran and Fergus, royals from the North and Valencia's in laws, also discovered Luca is completely terrible at cards.

Relationship Note on Edain

I have only met him a few times but Prince Edain is everything I would expect of a Varadin Knight - polite, humble and dashing. It is refreshing to meet another soul that thrives on modesty rather than scandal.

Relationship Note on Ravna

Ravna? Tch. What did he do this time? Ravna has a certain aura which draws people in. It's the damndest thing, really. Perhaps with anyone else, some of his antics would get him killed early, and I'm not saying that won't happen at some point or another either. But generally speaking? People find it interesting, curious, even charming sometimes? He has a way with words and stories which are just outlandish enough to wonder if they're actually true or if he's merely mincing things around. But either way, he's a Culler, in some way or another, and that's the only true important thing, isn't it?

Relationship Note on Dorian

Dorian? Of course I'm not close with him. Why would you think I was close with him? Tch. We just happen to run into each other a lot and he tends to be a lot of fun to be around when that happens. Why? Did he catch your eye? He has a habit of doing that, doesn't he?

Relationship Note on Calista

Calista is a darling. For a woman who is supposed to be nothing but trouble she is sweet and endearing, and wonderful company. I never thought I would find so much pleasure in spending time with the Lyceam ladies.

Relationship Note on Acacia

I might not have met Acacia if it wasn't for that stone that conveniently came flying when she ducked. I didn't, and we had a decent laugh over it. Since then, we've sent messengers back and forth enough to know that even if she might be up to something, she can be interesting company and I wouldn't mind running into her again, down in the Lower Boroughs.

My Luck!

Could you imagine, could you, that My Twin, has a Cousin? A COUSIN! Just as I! The Bearded Beard, whom at first might be the gruffest fuck whos ass be sore or throttled -- and turns to be chaffed, and vigorous. One cannot have slaughter without laughter, eh! Eh. I think. Victory was his name, I think, I know positively, and surely enough I think if this man ever thought to hire a Stick? I'd ask Greyhat to go join him, too. Fuck it, yeah?

Saw the Seraph again, once more, I did. I am now truly positive she fancies me, yeah, she keeps recounting every lyric of her Faith and - I must say - she tries. She truly tries. Truly, dually, and it is -- lovely to behold, if not humorous. One day, she will drink with me, I think. I know.

Prince Lucky was born when a Prince might be born my Twin, me very best companion of drink and tyrannical terrible trouble. Valrawl? I'd count my Twin amongst my most beloved of Family, and, bekid not, The Rich Kid can handle his drink and laughter hand-in-hand with just as little fear.

This same night I might meet The Tallest of Pretties; a Seraph whos cloud-borne head could not be anyless admirable than the stone-like stance, I think, I do believe, of her faith. I am postiive she fancies me.

Could you imagine, now, imagine, that my first time, my first free breath, I run into my cousin-not-cousin slid into the most lovely outfit of leather and just barely able to handle the way in which her cousin-not-cousin can perform such amazing feats, his zest, my zest, for life?

Recounting with Family is good for the soul, I think. I hope. I know, I think.

Arx is incomprehensively vast, even just the Ward of the Compact a mess of throughfairs, boulevards, ways and numerous other strange terms for streets. I have done my way to map the core of the city at least, which will hopefully prevent me from wandering lost:

The beginning is always the hardest time. This is when the groundwork is set that decides whether or not you're going to be a player or a fraud. Well, I guess that's the almost beginning, huh? The time that comes right after the beginning?

The beginning would have to be back when Father was strung up by the Iron Guard, even if I'd bet hard coin in those rumors which said that he was set up. There was always someone wandering around, watching what they didn't have and trying to figure out how to snatch it for themselves. That's the circle we live in. I get this. You get too much of a good thing and someone's going to want a piece. And he did good things. Well. Good for the family things, which counts just as much, if not more. Rencio Culler. There was a certain pride there. Not that I was trying to ride in his shadow as much as make my own, but you couldn't deny enjoying that it was constantly there.

But now I'm back. And something about that Lower Borough grit seems a little bit sweeter than it had previously. I get that taking that extended leave of absence might not supply excessive good will in those I left behind, but I'm working on reattaining that and it can't be said that me splitting town for awhile hasn't brought helpful things for everyone. Now it's just a matter of protecting what you have by any means necessary, while keeping your throat intact at the same time. So first comes the groundwork. And then? All the rest.

Relationship Note on Fergus

Running into him in the market was a little ballsy, even for me, but it's proven to be well worth it. Who would've thought that such a bold venture would've ended up with the rare humor or drink shared. I wouldn't dare to loiter around enough to try to tarnish his reputation, of course, and it isn't as if I don't know my place here. But there's a certain accord there. Maybe because my life doesn't mean as much in the grand scheme of things, eh? It's a frail thing at the moment, but perhaps time will strengthen it. Or perhaps it will break. Who knows?

Conducting myself amongst the highest of nobility is difficult, their viewpoints alien, their perspectives coming across as squewed and priorities strange indeed. What is expected of me? This is my new battlefield however and though I am ill equipped for it I must do my best and let my heart guide me in my actions.

    There is only one path and that is the path of Truth, do the right thing because it is right. The purpose of life is to be amongst those who renew the world, to make the world progress toward perfection.

How best to guide the world toward perfection? A whim of some high lord or lady can change the lives of thousands yet they do not know the fundamental truth, that for most of their subjects, the greatest goal they can aspire to is that their family will never know hunger.

Relationship Note on Viviana

I can't tell how seriously Viviana takes things or not. She laughs too easily, mocks too easily, and seems to treat life like it's some kind of big game, or even joke. Still, I have to believe there's a reason Belladonna made her the Voice of the Pravus family, so I'm willing to see if there's more than jokes and games with this one before I make my mind about her.

Relationship Note on Valencia

Alda's daughter is feisty. I can see why Carlotta thought she might thrive with Redrain. You would think Valencia would see the opportunity there, but I either she doesn't or she likes to pretend she doesn't. I'm admittedly not sure which it is yet. She is shrewd, she is smart, she is passionate though and sometimes prone to rash decisions. Still, she is family, and I do care for her, even if she can't quite see it yet.

Relationship Note on Arianwen

She seems to think the toughs of the lower boroughs should be feared, and that her connection to them makes her special. It doesn't. Her singing voice, her beauty, her general sassy attitude makes her special. But not so special a lord's guard is going to ram the butt of his weapon into her face one day to teach her a lesson, and there'll go her teeth and there'll go her beauty, and she's lucky she'll not get strangled out of her singing voice, too. That's the way the world works, kid. Its always safer to keep your head down. Not that I'd ever take that fucking advise myself either.

Relationship Note on Valencia

I really can't imagine how Valencia manages to always seem so calm and happy when we all know she has to return to that hairy beast of a Notherner husband every night. It makes me shudder just to think of it, shudder and make sure I'm valuable enough to the family that nobody is ever tempted to marry me off like that.

I've arrived in Arx after being appointed Voice of Pravus. So far I'm enjoying the city, lots of new people to scandalize or duel. Still need to get to know most of the important players so I can start to work in earnest but am looking forward to the challenge.
