Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.) Indulge the lot of us, especially for the beloved son.

“Or does not know about them. Or cannot publicly own them.” Argent nodded. “Reaver Dulcet is trusting his son’s future to us.”
