ASOR-10 Telbun

"Milord."

"I am no lord, I am just a soldier."

"And yet, your appointment as Telbun has more prestige than many a lord."

"I let others worry about prestige, I am concerned with Duty."

"A perfect response, surely, you've been well trained."

"I train others, at times, it behooves me to listen as well."

"Too perfect, surely..."

"Yes, a Dandelion I am, I wouldn't want to anger my relatives, who are many, puissant and well connected."

"Oh, yes, wouldn't want to insult my family, you'd get a black mark."

"You're...?"

"Ami Meiho, scion of the Dandelions, and priestess, with the Dignity of Aumhavar of Mountain Home, and second fetish, a pleasure, cousin."

"A Meiho, and from Mountain Home, would you know Sosua?"

"He is my first cousin."

"He is my third cousin, I have been exchanging correspondence, he mentions visitors of import."

"Mountain Home seldom has any other kind, but I suspect you mean Mikhala Kagomei, Domei of Didina."

"Ah, he never mentioned her name or title, but I suspected at least a Hayley. Let alone a Dandelion herself by birth."

"A Hayley? For the third in the line of succession? Such a suggestion would get you in the small graces of the family, cousin."

"Please let us not say more, and tell me instead what brings a priestess of the Nine...."

"I am not of the Nine, cousin, I am Aumhavar, not Aumhavar-Meiho of Mountain Home, but I am second of Fetish, not First, Fetishest is not mine to claim, I am mistress of rituals."

"Mistress of Rituals? Maybe not of the Nine, but the next best thing?"

"And you, you speak to Meihomei as her trusted subordinate, sit on the committees for the Merit of Honor, and the Knights of Emerald."

"I serve in my way, cousin, and I don't begrudge you yours."

"You're... you're not even a priest!"

"No, I am not, I know the hearts of men, but without magic. You... know better than I ever can."
