Inric turns back to her with a familiar weariness. She is gazing hopefully at him, hands clasped in unconscious supplication.
"That man - Prytanis - has some kind of hold on him!"
"It is not right to interfere," he says.
"But aren't they your kin too?"

He sighs, and surrenders. "You told me that Tiero works with wyrbeasts?"
"... yes?" She looks confused but hopeful.
