“The rumors are true. The old Manticore is dead. The Silent Legion has appointed a new commander. A man called Faramud. He’s imprisoned at Assakal, along with his closest allies. Mistress, do you really want to deal with these mercenaries? There are reasons the old guard of the Grand Emir was imprisoned for life. But I did prepare the doves and placed them in front of Faramud’s cell, exactly as you wanted me to.”

Cassia of Tenos
“I know you liked her, dear cousin. Oh, everyone loved her. Even I did. But she’s an enchantress, a dazzler, a harlot. We know that all too well. Cassia promises the world to everyone, but she cannot pay with anything but her pretty eyes and a pretty voice. No, dear cousin, she got the kicking she deserved. The monster would have eaten us all alive.”

Takate – Forest-Man
- Heresy and the denial of Divine Truths
- Endangering the peace
- Public obscenity
- Practicing Black Magic
Despite his origins among the forest people of the Rain Mountains, Takate has little left in common with his brothers. Though he speaks the Common Tongue well enough, it would be a mistake to think him civilized because of it: Takate learned his manners as a slave in the gladiator schools. Battle and bloodshed have been his only purpose in life, and he has earned a reputation for playing with his victims like a wild cat before making his cold-blooded kill.
