"I will need to leave soon, possibly for several days," Inric says. "You should know how to greet other Eldarin, should they arrive in my absence. They will expect a clan name. I presume you would prefer not to mention Ahl Serin or its location?"
"Oh, um, no." Tiero swallows. "What should I say?"
"Unaffiliated settlements do exist outside of the clanholds, although they are rare. If you say you do not come from a clanhold, that is what most will assume. And since you came here by transfer, you do not know the way back."
"Oh." Tiero digests this for a moment. "Oh, I see. My thanks."
