Ring Fortune has not yet permitted our meeting [Private]

Continued from here.

The correspondent failed to include an address, but such trivialities were not paid heed by the Imperial Consulate. It was a fairly academic exercise to note that a certain Eraisuithon Nan'tathren had, in early Ulyris, made specific inquiries with respect to a fairly large property.

Furthermore, the sum of two hundred and eighty thousand crowns, at sight (and on demand) payment, meant that this was a fellow of some means.

Two cycles hence, a uniformed Imperial Marine presented a sealed envelope to this aforementioned individual, said envelope bearing a unique Imperial Consular seal of a winged being sejant of some kind. There was no mark of postage, implying that the message had not traveled via the Imperial Courier Service, but rather, through private, military, or Imperial channels.

Eraisuithon Gil'dae is a benevolent Adventurer
Kicking back in his study, feet quite impetuously propped up on a fine mahogany desk, the elf wrested a hand through rather unkempt hair and sighed deeply. It was going to be another one of those brightenings; the suns had barely risen, and he knew it. He withdrew himself from his propped position and stood up lazily, looking out the windows of his study at the overgrown lawns and the dim silhouette of forest beyond. He bent over, trying to touch his toes; then stood upon his tiptoes and flung his arms in a stretch overhead.

What to do? he asked himself aloud, wandering towards the bookcase and tugging the glass door ajar. He inspected the volumes, hoping for an answer. His eyes glazed over. The previous owner of his house had liked botany far too much.

I thought retirement was supposed to be fun, he mused further, pulling out a volume at random and dusting off the cover anyway.

Then he heard it. He stopped - thinking his ears were playing cruel tricks on him. But then he heard it again - the almost inaudible clink, clink of his door knocker - and he knew at once that it could only be one thing.

Throwing the tome aside, the elf sprang out of the study and into a wide open marble corridor. Breaking out into a run, his bare feet slapped loudly against the floor as he sprung past landscape paintings and bronze statuary, before finally sputtering to a halt at the main door to his foyer. He accepted the letter gladly from the marine, raking the fine piece of Imperial meat hungrily with his eyes after the courier had turned away to leave. Then, slamming the door behind him, the elf hastily tore open the seal of the envelope and devoured every word within.

It seemed he would have something to do soon.

Goblet Introductions.

In the Reign of Rhysatra and her First Lackey Threllius de Lylles,
during the Supreme Commandership of the West of Her Imperial Highness Arctic de Ioannes,
Ulyris, Summer, Era XXI after the Aetherfracture.



The black carriage that had fetched the quiet elven fellow had borne little fanfare, save its being dark as the night and its interiors sumptuous - evidently Sapientia liked his comforts - and the guest therein given all possible courtesy and refreshment.

The Imperial Consulate in Nexus Prime was an unassuming manor, not easily distinguishable from others of its kind. It had no sentries at the door, and the only difference was the fact that it flew the Imperial Standard prominently on a flagpole, with the black gryphon upon a silver shield upon a purple field - the flag of Arium - on another flagpole nearby.

The uniformed attendants of the Imperial Legions dismounted and opened the carriage door, hastening their charge's entrance, save for the fact that they did not, as a rule, salute mere cives, no matter their wealth.

The interiors - it looked just like any manor, albeit with an Arium cultural feel compared to the Great Houses of Aelyria Prime - and ended at what appeared to be the largest room, where the front page of The Herald covered the face of what appeared to be a seated individual.

"Master Eraisuithon Nan'tathren," intoned the uniformed Provost, who then immediately left the scene.

Setting aside the Herald would reveal blonde-brown hair and pale features soon revealed none other then His Imperial Excellency and Imperial Grace The Duke Sapientia, Imperial Viceroy. He stood up, and bid his guest sit.

The furnishings were adequate, if Arium antiques were one's interest. Quietly grand, aged, but purposeful, hiding a strength not immediately seen, just like the United Directorate.

"A pleasure to make your acquaintance. Might I offer you a liquor of your choice?"
