*Kalvos sighs and steps forward. He bows his head and kneels before the Princess. He takes her hand and gently kisses it*.

Venn....

*He looks wearily into Philomena's eyes and smiles*.

My name is Venn... And as a soldier, I'm merely here to die for you...

It's a nice name. Follow me Venn, let's hope you will not be asked to lay down your life for me on the way back to my chamber... although as you are just another mercenary, I dare say I will replace you soon enough.

*Philomena glances at Darl, nods to Captain Savvi and leaves the room*

*Darl sits up in bed and stares into the dark, he can see light shining through a nearby corridor and calls out*.

Where is my Princess?.... Why have I been sleeping?!

*He climbs out of bed and staggers across the floor*.

Weakness.....

*Darl reaches the wall and leans against it*.

Though I live and breathe....

*He can make out the physical forms of others lying beneath bed sheets in their beds*.

I sleep in a hospital?!.... Graveyards are favorable to such a place as this.....

*He calls out again*.

Derios!!!!

*Derias awakes from dozing on the chair. He springs up and supports Darl*

My Lord... My Lord...

*Tears spring to his eyes*

To see you rise... all my prayers have been answered. She saved you... the Princess saved you from the assassins poison bolts. You must rejoice at that kiss that brought you back from the dead.

*He looks to a guard and barks at him*

Get the Princess at once. She will be in the Great Hall, hosting the victory banquet. No doubt she will wish to be at Lord Thranmere's side.

*He smiles at Darl*

A weaker man would have died, your strength will return soon and you will be able to enjoy the gratitude of your wife. You saved many children, it appeals to her tender heart.

*Darl slides out of bed and stands up*.

Derias.....

*He grips the man tightly by the arm*.

How many know of my wounds? That I have been sick?

*He pulls Derias close*.

My enemies are all around.... Seeking to overthrow me.... Bring me down....

*Darl snarls at Derias*.

The Princess saved me?! Do my generals know of this indignity?

*Darl places his fingers around Derias's throat*.

Is the war one? Have I missed the final battle?

It was impossible to keep news of your condition secret, but you must not fear. Only the most loyal of men guard you and I will not leave your side. It won't take long for you to recover, you had worse wounds when you were pulled from the Dudrassa. It was the poison that almost killed you, and the mermaid's kiss cured you of that.

*He rubs his throat*

The Princess has garnered a great deal of respect from your men. That magic cloud, her ability to use a mirror to see the activity of your enemies and to save a man from certain death just from a kiss. They admire her power, you know how the Kanaran people are... They will fight twice as hard for both you and her now. She will remain loyal to you for you are family now and mermaids are trained from birth to be loyal to their families.

*He smiles*

The final battle has yet to be fought, you still have that chance for victory, over Grimney... and your wife's heart. Besides... This last battle will go down in legend, your men say you fought more fiercely and valiantly than any warrior before you. If it hadn't been for a cowardly shot to your back... from Kanaran hands.

*He looks grim*

You have to purge your enemies, once your strength returns you must put to the sword any you think has betrayed you.

Lord Avalay...

*The Captain looks nervous about the news he is to break*

The Princess.... she said she will come when she feels like it.

*He glances at Darl*

I think... I think she doesn't want to disrespect the Generals by cutting the victory banquet short.

Captain Savvi I shall attend upon the Princess and my council of war...

*He looks at Derias*.

I have been betrayed and the enemies who sought to poison me must perish. I want names and I want executions.... Slow, painful public deaths....

*Darl smiles uneasily*.

The Princess will be rewarded for her loyalty..... I remain devoted..... And I will as you suggest punish all those who believe that I have even the slightest weakness....

Take your leave Captain...

*He nods his head in response to the uneasy salute from the captain*

Names will not take long to find...

*He makes a motion to a young maid who scurries away like a mouse*

Once a few conspirators are in the dungeons, their tongues will loosen quick enough. Public executions... they are of course a necessity but will you command your wife to attend? You know she does not like such things. Perhaps in some cases you should demonstrate your strength, personally take the traitors' lives in front of your men.

*He sighs and looks at Darl*

The Princess... this is not a life she was born to. Be gentle in your treatment of her.

You believe me too harsh?

*Darl raises an eyebrow and his mouth twists into a cruel sneer*.

A strong woman can take a beating... And the more you beat them the stronger they become. Brutality builds iron hearts.

*He glares at Derias*.

Philomena must learn our ways and understand our natures....

*Darl looks around at the wounded soldiers*.

Find names, wounded or otherwise I will see my assassins skinned.

*He nods*.

Yes Derias... I will carry out the executions personally.... And Philomena will bear witness... Find those who tried to kill me... Innocent or not I want blood.
