Saniago Torres part 4: Saniago Torres Questioned.

Post by Elysia » Sun Jan 05, 2020 9:27 am

The Defenders had discovered Saniago Torres was an Under-Lieutenant in the Defenders. They promptly questioned him. This was one of the requested RP sessions, one of the few, but it was fun.

Loud noise emanates from the common room.

The bluedoor is opened from the other side.

Fuujin has arrived from the west.
A Defender of the Stone has arrived from the west.
Delion has arrived from the west.

The hustle and bustle of the tavern drowns out all other sound.
CLOINK! Someone loudly puts down their tankard.
The scraping of wood on wood suggests a chair is being moved.

Fuujin frowns.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres looks at his cards and sighs.
Delion slowly scans the room.

This man has a dark complexion, with the tell-tale pointed and oiled beard
that Tairens prefer. He is of average height and weight and wears the knots
that denote him as an Under-Lieutenant in the elite force of the Defenders
of the Stone. He seems to be proud and oddly cheerful.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres is in excellent condition.

You follow Delion.

To the Stone!

Office of the Defenders
Guarded by an etched brass-colored door, the Defenders' office looks
well-adorned and comfortable, but with an obvious purpose, judging by the
thick metal chains. They are set into the far wall and seem tailor-made
for holding prisoners. A table, desk and chair, all metal-made and finely
etched, complete the picture. The dungeons are back out the door, westward.
[ obvious exits: W ]
A Defender of the Stone serves his superiors here.
Lord Melat al'Farath is standing here.
An Under-Lieutenant of the Defenders of the Stone stands here.
Lord Delion the Lieutenant is standing here.

A Defender of the Stone maintains peace in the city.
A lean man with a short pointed beard surveys the area.
The Defender's quartermaster, Marke, stands nearby.
A gray haired weaponsmaster stands nearby.

Though overseeing everything going on around him, this man stands with an
air of cockiness only gained from being a noble of Tear. He is lean in
stature with darkened skin. A small beard grows on his chinned trimmed to a
point. However, his armor marks him as the Captain of the Stone.

Captain Rodrivar Tihera is in excellent condition.

Captain Rodrivar Tihera is using:
<worn on head> a rimmed round helmet
<worn on body> a burnished metal breastplate

Delion says 'Please Saniago, sit.'

Delion slides into one of the chairs.
Fuujin sits in a chair to the left of Delion.

Fuujin says 'I prefer when things go smoothly'

Delion whispers something to Fuujin.
Fuujin nods at Delion.
Delion whispers something to Melat.

Fuujin says 'Under-Lieutenant. Torres, do you mind if I call you Torres? '

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres notices a bit of lint on his black coat and carefully brushes it off.

Fuujin doesn't seemed concerned as to your response, 'How long have you been in service to the Defenders?'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I am proud of my family name, ma'am. You may call me Torres.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'A bloody shame we lost, if you don't mind my saying so, ma'am.'

Melat leans back against the wall, crossing his arms.

Delion says 'Blasted mercenaries.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres grins evilly.

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'After nearly an age, it has not weathered.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Melat tilts his head slightly as he examines the facial expressions of Saniago Torres

Fuujin says 'I have another question for you. Have you ever heard of fork root?'

Delion whispers something to Fuujin.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Fork whom, ma'am?'

Fuujin nods in agreement.
Fuujin says 'I thought not, it's not commonly known about'
Fuujin says 'For most people, it doesn't do much'

Delion places a quill and paper in a small satchel.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I assume you mean by that, that some are affected?'

Fuujin's fang-toothed grin doesn't quite reach her eye.
Fuujin says 'Right you are!'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres strokes his pointed beard.

Fuujin says 'But few are. It's kind of like a truth serum. If you're honest, you'll be fine. And if you're not, well...'

Delion ever so slightly nods at a Defender of the Stone.

A Defender of the Stone tenses, resting his hand on his sword hilt.

Fuujin says 'Delion, would you be so kind as to offer the man some.'

Delion says 'It's as harmless as it comes Torres.'

Melat nods at Delion.

Delion says 'You're drinking from the same skin as I, in fact.'
Delion says 'If anything, it helps with recall.'

Fuujin says 'Your cooperation in this matter will be most appreciated. We're hoping that this is a case of mistaken identity.'

Delion places a water skin on the desk in front of Saniago.

Fuujin says 'Perhaps someone is slandering your name'

Melat nods in agreement.
Delion gives a water skin to Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres looks around slowly, as if something is hidden in the room.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Is this a joke? Did Carlon put you up to this?'

Delion's smile no longer meets his eyes.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres directs a hopeful look towards Tihera.

Fuujin says 'Would we be sitting before Captain Tihera if this was a joke'

Delion says 'I can assure you, this is quite serious.'

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'No, Under-Lieutenant, this is no joke.'

Delion says 'But please, the sooner this is cleared up the better.'

Melat echos his words, "quite serious"

Delion says 'And we can go back to our duties.'

Melat chuckles politely.
Delion gives a Defender of the Stone an order.
A Defender of the Stone stands at ease.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I suppose that was honest.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres chuckles politely.

Fuujin gathers herself, 'See. It's good that you were cooperative. I have a few more questions, however.'

Delion says 'I apologise for the bitter taste.'
Delion wrinkles his nose.
Delion says 'I'll need a beer after this.'

Melat says 'doesnt help that he backwashes.'

Delion nods at Fuujin.

Fuujin says 'You may not have heard, but there is a man bearing your name threatening Tear'

Delion glares at Melat.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Bitter is an understatement. Pardon my saying sir, it tastes like three week old manure.'

Melat leans back against the wall and smirks

Delion snorts loudly.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres shrugs helplessly.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'One of Carlon's jokes, I'm sure.'

Melat frowns.
Delion hands a rolled up poster to Lady Fuujin.
Delion whispers something to Fuujin.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'He's not in trouble, is he? My mother, she was so fond of him.' [EDITED tense because I had forgotten his mother was dead.]

Melat reaches into his sack and pulls out additonal posters of similar sizes.

Fuujin shakes her head.
Fuujin says 'As far as I'm aware, he's fine'
Fuujin says 'This, however, was found in Fal Dara'

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'The lady Cyrilla can rest easy. While her youngest son is a pest sometimes, he is not in trouble.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres heaves a sigh of relief.

Melat writes a quick note.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres looks at what Fuujin is holding.

Fuujin unfurls the poster and slides it to Torres, 'Lord Melat made this copy, but these words were posted on the gates of Fal Dara.'
Fuujin opens her hand for Melat to pass another poster.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres's dark eyes dart left and right as he reads.
Melat hands Fuujin another poster
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres's face grows more concerned.

Delion says 'Fal Dara. Caemlyn. Cairhien. Mayene. Tanchico.'
Delion slams his fist on the table.

Fuujin unfurls this poster, 'And this was found in Tanchico.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres starts to say something, then reaches the end of the page.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres throws back his head and cackles with insane glee!

Delion boggles at the thought.
Melat looks at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Who'd have thought there's another Saniago Torres.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Jon Smith, sure, but Saniago Torres?!'

Delion blinks his eyes innocently.
Delion says 'It is not a common family name.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Is he Tairen?'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'He sounds Tairen.'

Delion says 'We do not know.'

Fuujin says 'But more worrisome than that'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Well, if he truly exists, this is what we've trained for for hundreds of years.'

Fuujin says 'Is that this man claims to have taken the Stone before.'

Delion says 'Torres, I am concerned you haven't fully grasped the implication.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Well that's bollocks, obviously.'

Delion says 'There are many parties incredibly vested in finding a man called Saniago Torres.'

Fuujin nods at Delion.

Delion says 'Many of them will not be cordial.'

Melat nods in agreement.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'If they dare to harm a Defender, they will face the might of Tear's elite forces.'

Melat frowns.
Fuujin frowns.

Delion says 'Indeed, they will have to get through us.'
Delion says 'I'm sure you're aware of the rumours surrounding the White Tower's penchance for kidnapping.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Really, who would be stupid enough to think a Defender of all people would be the Dragon Reborn?'

Delion snickers softly.

Melat arches an eyebrow.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres frowns.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'It's that fork stuff, it's making me forget my manners.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres chuckles politely.

Delion waves a hand dismissively.
Delion says 'No matter.'
Delion says 'We get off track.'
Delion nods at Fuujin.
Delion whispers something to Fuujin.

Fuujin ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres sits a bit straighter.

Melat appears impatient.

Fuujin says 'Do you have any other family besides Carlon? Or any enemies that might go to these lengths?'
Fuujin says 'Any gamblers you might owe a lot of money to?'
Fuujin peers closely at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres, trying to figure him out.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Ah, well.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres looks sad.

Delion drums his fingers on his thight in a steady beat.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I only have the Torres family. My father is a retired Defender. And there's my brother.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Unfortunately, that's all I have. After I was born, my parents had both died and the Torres family took me in.

Melat says 'wait... your not a torris blood then?'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'My mother did not have a child yet and she was happy to take care of the child of a fellow Defender.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'My father died deployed with the forces near Tar Valon during the Aiel invasion.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'My mother died during childbirth, here, in the...'

Melat widens his eyes

Delion says 'Ah, a bloody war.'
Delion looks at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres gestures to the building around them.

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Melat says 'fascinating...'

Captain Rodrivar Tihera nods at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'That was all recorded at the time, to ensure you were able to enlist as a Defender, should you wish to.'
Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'Considering we only take from certain families.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Delion says 'As is good and proper.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres nods at Captain Rodrivar Tihera.

Melat says 'you are Tairen by blood or not then?'
Melat looks at Fuujin.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Light, yes.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Born right here to lady... erm...'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres thinks hard.

Delion says 'He wouldn't be here if he wasn't Tairen through and through.'
Delion snickers softly.

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'Rafela.'

Fuujin nods at Captain Rodrivar Tihera.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres taps his head and says 'Rafela. Lady Rafela.'

Melat says 'did you have any older siblings from her?'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I think that fork drink is losing its potency.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'No sir!'

Fuujin ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Melat writes more notes.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I was the first born. I'm told first born carry the greatest risk for the mother.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres looks glum.

Delion nods in agreement.

Melat says 'where exactly were you born?'

Fuujin says 'It's unfortunate that she passed away. '

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Right here in the Stone.'

Fuujin snickers softly.

Delion blinks his eyes innocently.

Melat whispers something to Delion.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'The lady's Rafela's quarters I assume? I don't know where women go to give birth.'

Fuujin snickers softly.

Delion says 'Then if my memory of the Aiel is correct, you're quite young?'

Melat whispers something to Delion.

Delion says 'To have risen to the rank of Under-Lieutenant so fast.'
Delion says 'Quite an achievement.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'My father was a Defender.'

Delion nods his head approvingly.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres grins evilly.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'But yes, I am young still. I only recently attained this rank though.

Delion nods in agreement.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Less than a year?'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres eyes Tihera.

Melat mutters to himself in complete disgust.

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'Less than a year, you are correct.'

Delion nods in agreement.
Delion says 'Well.'
Delion says 'Whilst it is good to have met your properly Torres.'
Delion says 'I'm seeing nothing in your family history to suggest another of the same name.'
Delion thinks hard.
Delion says 'Can anyone here recall meeting any others called Torres in their travels?'
Delion says 'A cadet branch in another country perhaps?'

Fuujin shakes her head.
Delion strokes his chin thoughtfully.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres strokes his beard as he thinks.

Melat says 'what was your fathers name, Torres?'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Alfredo Torres, sir.'

Melat says 'and your other ...father?'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres glances at Tihera.

Captain Rodrivar Tihera chuckles politely.
Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'Huan Annariz.'

Delion says 'I'll never fail to be impressed at that perfect recall Captain.'

Fuujin nods at Delion.

Melat says 'huan'
Melat strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Delion says 'Including every single mistake and transgression I've made over the years.'
Delion sighs loudly.
Delion says 'It may be worth exploring other options.'

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'Huan was a lesser member of the Annariz family, a cousin of the High Lady.'

Fuujin nods at Captain Rodrivar Tihera.

Fuujin says 'We don't think this is a prank, so we have to be sure that there isn't someone close to you that we should be aware of or someone with a reason to impersonate you, specifically'

Delion nods in agreement.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I think if they wanted to impersonate anyone, they would use my birth name.'

Fuujin says 'Indeed'

Rajis has arrived from the west.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'The Annariz family is far wealthier and more important than the Torres family.

Delion whispers something to Fuujin.
Delion nods in agreement.

Rajis looks at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Delion says 'Which makes this far more personal.'
Delion says 'Though we will have eyes and ears on the hunt for any other bearing your name.'
Delion says 'And in fact, already do.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres nods in agreement.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres boggles at the thought.

Fuujin says 'A threat like this, posted as far reaching as it is. We don't take security risks lightly, not where the Stone is concerned'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Should I come across this fellow, I will blacken his eye.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres growls menacingly.

Fuujin nods at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Is there anything you require of me, until we apprehend this fellow?'

Delion strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres looks at Tihera and everyone else in turn.

Delion says 'So, no enemies you can think of?'
Delion ponders life, the universe, and everything.
Delion slumps in his chair.

Fuujin says 'Others may come for you. I would suggest to Captain Tihera that we assign you to the Stone for duty, less a Hand of Light catches you and whisks you away'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says dryly 'About a few thousand Illianers, to the west.'

Delion says 'I had hoped we could glean more from this.'

Fuujin just gave up on that cause they suck so much.

Delion says 'I fear we are no closer to apprehending the culprit or culprits behind this.'

Fuujin nods at Delion.
Rajis sighs loudly.

Delion says 'Ah, one other thing.'
Delion grabs a small note from a small leather pouch.
Delion says 'Does the word Asha'man mean anything to you?'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I already patrol the Stone, however, I do like going to the Golden Cup for a drink or two.'

Delion says 'A little beyond a bar room grudge.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Asha'man sounds like the Old Tongue, but I must admit I was never paying attention in those classes.'

Delion nods in agreement.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres clears his throat.

Melat blinks his eyes innocently.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I preferred the riding classes.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres chuckles politely.

Melat whispers something to Delion.

Delion says 'Didn't we all.'

Fuujin nods at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.
Fuujin says 'Of course'

Delion whispers something to Melat.
Delion says 'Very well.'
Delion says 'Are there any further questions?'

Melat thinks hard.
Rajis shakes his head.

Rajis says 'I'll talk to the rest of you afterwards'

Delion nods at Rajis.
Delion says 'Fuujin?'

Melat says 'Are you eventually striving for Rank 7, Torres?'

Delion chuckles politely.
Fuujin snickers softly.

Delion says 'At the rate he's going.'
Fuujin says 'I should hope so'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Of course. However, that will be some time.'

Melat says 'The only difference between your name and the poster is the "Lord"'

Melat says 'I think it is an interesting distinction.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres frowns.

Fuujin pokes Melat in the ribs.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Perhaps I should not rush it then. Not that I could.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres glances at Tihera.

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Delion blinks his eyes innocently.
Delion says 'If I can, anyone can.'
Delion nods to himself, he must need reassurance.

Melat says 'I'm sure when and if that day arrives, this hooplah will be all figured out.'

Captain Rodrivar Tihera says 'You know it.'

Fuujin's fang-toothed grin doesn't quite reach her eye.

Delion says 'Right then.'

Melat says 'We do appreciate your cooporation.'
Melat nods at Fuujin.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'You're welcome.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.
Fuujin says 'I love when these go easily'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'It's an honor to serve Tear and the Stone.'
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'But if you pardon my saying so, I could use a proper drink.'

Fuujin prays 'I feel like you're flexing on me rn because I've fucked it up every single time lmfao'
Fuujin nods in agreement.

Delion says 'I am sure you can.'

Fuujin says 'Make sure to watch your back and don't stay out too late'

Rajis says 'Surtain's is always open'

Delion says 'However, it may be wise to adjust your schedule some what.'
Delion says 'In light of this revelation.'

Melat nods in agreement.
Melat says 'We need to provide extra security, perhaps'
Melat says 'Just in case someone does an attempt on your life.'

Delion says 'I wonder if the Captain might be able to have a guard provide-'
Delion nods at Melat.

Melat nods in agreement.
Melat says 'A watch, 24/7 for the next 9 days'
Melat says 'For your protection, of course.'

Delion says 'People tend to jump to conclusions.'
Delion says 'As I suppose we did somewhat.'

Rajis nods at Delion.

Delion says 'I hope you do not feel you were treated unfairly.'

Melat says 'They will not be as polite as we are. Hell if we let anything happen to you in this next coming week.'

Delion says 'But we can leave that to the Captain to decide I'm sure.'

Fuujin says 'We were cautious. Conclusions weren't jumped to, I'm sure Torres understands.'

Delion says 'He loves additional paperwork.'

Melat smirks.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Perhaps I could act as bait?'

Melat arches an eyebrow.
Melat strokes his chin thoughtfully.

Delion balks, his face incredulous.

Rajis says 'A daring suggestion.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I would assume that some are willing to break our laws to get to me, especially those with less than savory intentions?'

Melat says 'Interesting... only two parties would be interested in that'

Delion says 'You- you aren't wrong.'
Delion says 'No, I can think of more.'

Melat says 'Those who do not understand what is going on...and those who actually may be the one BEHIND these posters.'

Delion says 'Oh well.'
Delion says 'Yes.'
Delion snickers softly.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Or the Shadow, assuming they are not behind those posters.'

Melat says 'Either way, this may be a favorable suggestion.'

Delion says 'I can see.'

Fuujin ponders life, the universe, and everything.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres shrugs helplessly.

Delion says 'Then perhaps no further action is needed.'

Melat says 'However, if you are willing, we may call for your aid into this in the very near future.'

Melat says 'Perhaps we can catch someone quickly and find more answers.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I can try to keep a list of those who try to query me.'

Fuujin nods at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Delion says 'That would be of great help.'

Rajis says 'Good plan.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres nods in agreement.

Melat says 'If we can arrange it, I propose eyes and ears and extra muscle with Torres at all times until this is solved.'

Delion says 'I am considering a proclomation announcing that Torres has no connection to these posters.'

Melat says 'If any one comes for him, we will have guards on stand by to quickly assist.'

Rajis says 'If perhaps at a distance to not tip people off.'

Delion says 'This may encourage and discourage various parties.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'If something does happen to me, Corlan is not yet of age. Please make sure he is taken care of. Not that I doubt you would.'

Delion says 'It would certainly alert them to him.'

Fuujin nods at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.
Melat whispers something to Delion.
Delion smiles gently.

Fuujin says 'We always take care of our own'
Fuujin says 'But don't worry'

Melat whispers something to Delion.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres smiles widely.
Delion whispers something to Melat.

Fuujin says 'This should blow over soon'

Fuujin grins evilly.
Fuujin nods in agreement.
Melat shivers uncomfortably.

Delion says 'Well, if there is nothing further, we can let the Under-Lieutenant have a chance to win back some gold.'

Melat begins to write quickly.

Fuujin says 'Or lose some'

Delion chuckles politely.
Melat gives some coins to Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.
Fuujin smirks.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres nods sadly at Fuujin.
Melat claps Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres on the back.

Delion says 'Whilst we perhaps continue this discussion not packed like sardines in the Captain's office.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Delion gives some coins to Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Mmm, sardines.'

Delion says 'That should cover a few drinks.'
Delion says 'Apologies again for the forkroot.'

Melat looks at Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'With a squirt of lemon.'

Delion says 'chuck'

Delion says 'A Tairen through and through.'

Delion starts to drool.
Fuujin shivers uncomfortably.
Melat strokes his chin thoughtfully.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres bows his head slightly.
Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres stands.
Delion nods in agreement.

Melat says 'I find it suprising though... nobody has mentioned these posters to you while here?'

Melat says 'it's been up for a few days.'

Delion says 'Time is a funny thing.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I had heard some things mentioned, but I thought it was a joke from Corlan.'

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Melat says 'Perhaps time is. May we talk to him or your Torres family?'

Melat says 'Perhaps a quick stop by later.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'My mother died last year, unfortunately.'

Rajis comforts Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'Alfredo is retired after he took an arrow from an Illianer to his shoulder.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'He could never work his sword arm as before.'

Delion nods in agreement.

Melat says 'The only other place worse than the shoulder is the knee...'

Fuujin says 'Thankfully it wasn't his knee. He can still ride.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'But I'm sure he will talk your ears off if you let him.'

Melat nods at Fuujin.

Delion says 'I don't think Torres's family history will provide much more insight.'

Delion says 'It seems whomever is behind the posters comes from outside the family.'

Melat looks at Delion.

Melat says 'Perhaps outside. But why the name is the question.'

Melat says 'They must know him somehow.'

Delion says 'But continue to pursue it as you will Lord Melat.'

Melat says 'Oh I wil.'

Melat says 'will.'

Melat coughs loudly.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres says 'I will keep an ear out.'

Delion nods in agreement.

Fuujin nods in agreement.

Melat says 'I am done for now.'

Melat nods in agreement.

Fuujin says 'I have no further questions myself.'

Delion says 'In that case, we thank you for your time once more Torres.'

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres bows deeply.

Under-Lieutenant Saniago Torres snaps to attention and salutes grandly.

Delion says 'You are dismissed.'
