*As news that Darl Thraranmere is approaching the soldiers stumble around to make the barracks and themselves presentable. Captain Kyt watches Kalvos with interest as the new recruit arranges his bed and possessions with military precision.*

*Candles are lit and Darl gazes at the weary faces of his warriors. He observes the new recruit, and looks to Captain Kyt*.

A new man I see....

*He nods and sighs*.

Our enemies are on our doorstep, although they are held captive in a blue mist that Philomena created, I believe they have burned a nearby village to draw us out into combat....

*Darl grips the hilt of his sword*.

The High Council armies are to be shown no mercy. We will take no prisoners... And we take no trophies.... We must simply wipe them out....

*He studies the dimly lit faces as he walks the line between each barrack bed*.

Children are to be saved and you must do your best not to kill civilians... We have a chance to gain alliances with Grimney citizens. This is not a war on Kanaran soil and we must gain the trust, and loyalty of the people...

*He looks at Captain Kyt*.

I will need three warriors to guard the Princess.... And Drayfuss and Grey will ride at my side and lead the attack.

*He looks at the Captain a third time*.

I also issue an order that Derias should be released.... See that it is done... Although the battle will be won.... Many will fall.... That we all understand.....

*He gazes down at the ribbon on his wrist*.

Take with you something personal, a reminder of why you fight... It'll give you strength in battle or give you comfort in death....

Lord Thranmere, I introduce the mercenary that Narvik Karn brought here. His name is Venn. May he swear his allegiance and be returned his sword so he may have the honour of killing and dying for you?

*He puts his hand on Venn's shoulder and gently pushes him forward. He whispers to the young warrior*

Go. Make a good impression, as you can see Lord Thranmere is an honourable man.

*He kneels before Lord Thranmere*

My Lord, I am willing to forgo the pleasure and glory of a victorious battle to protect the Princess if you should choose it. I believe that Ulric Hawk and Arlan Lex have guarded the princess recently and were not found lacking.

*Darl looks Venn up and down*.

Do you not kneel for your Commander and Chief? Did the gods not give you knees to bend?

*He strokes his beard and waits*.

What say you soldier?

*Kalvos remains standing*.

I was once a knight of the Queen's Elite... I have fought many battles and killed many men... I know the enemy when I see them....

*He looks Darl up and down and frowns*.

And I stand strong against them... I always stand... But I will fight for you and the Princess... If you return my sword.

Queen's Elite eh? Well I thought you were no ordinary mercenary. Explains a few things...

*He looks Kalvos up and down*

Guess you do things a bit different round here... there's another renegade knight in sick bay, friend of the Princess.

Renegade knights are welcomed...

*Darl shakes his head*.

Strong willed killers are what we need. And your desertion from the Queen's Elite assures me of your worth and standing.

*He looks to Captain Kyt*.

Give him his sword...

*He looks back at Venn*.

If you have desire to harm me that will fade in the face of the enemy, for their blood lust is greater than mine....

*He nods at the Captain and lifts him by his arm to his feet*.

Walk with me a moment...

*They cross to a dimly lit corner of the large barrack room*.

And Derias....

*Darl removes a large iron key from a pouch upon his belt*.

Pass this key to him... It will unlock the furthest door of a chamber beneath the castle....

*He whispers*.

With instructions that care must be taken... As I have cared... Derias is to speak no word of what he will find....

Speak nothing... even to your wife?

*He raises his eyebrows*

I thought you concealed nothing from her... I am not questioning you, I merely want to ensure I get your instructions right.

*He puts the key in his pocket and frowns*

And while I am guarding the Princess... I suppose Jett will still be acting as her bodyguard? Any special instructions?

*The captain picks up the shining sword and hands it to Kalvos*

It's a fine sword, finer than any I have removed from the corpse of a knight. I hope you will wield it well.

*Darl grabs Captain Kyt by the shoulder and pulls him close*.

I don't trust Vortigern Jett, but he has passion enough in his black heart to protect the Princess...

*He pats the officer on the shoulder and smiles*.

Until his own inevitable violent death.

*He sighs*.

Philomena judges me... She does not understand the ways of the Kanarans.... And perhaps the Kanarans do not understand my ways....

*He grabs Kyt around the throat*.

That I can give life and take life whenever I choose...

*Darl loosens his grip and lowers his hand*.

You'll serve me welll Captain Kyt.... As you have done before...
