More than just your average chauffeur, Michael Ward is a doting husband, a proud father, a closet scholar, a patient teacher, and a little more amazing than he lets on. A reaver with the designation of ward, Michael’s family has been serving the Hajime household for generations.
Michael Ward by FoxOfTwilight
Michael was born in England, but he was shipped to Stately House very young, to be raised by his grandfather (and by Argent). A polyglot and his former teacher’s pet, he lives a rather reclusive life, but Michael maintains strong ties with the In-between.

Argent sat stiffly in his chair, waiting for the call he couldn’t avoid, let alone resist. Not long after sunset, a soft knock interrupted his brooding.
“It’s only me.”
Michael eased through the door and put it at his back. “Your new mistress is here.”
“Was that today? It had entirely slipped my mind.”
“Are you all right?”
“That remains to be seen.” Argent gripped the arms of his chair more tightly, trying to hide his hands’ faint tremors. “Well?”
“Yes, you are. Disgustingly so.”
