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 the one who is perfect for their job.
“Our Lapis?” Jacques asked, incredulous. “Lord Mossberne?”
Argent’s lip curled. “According to the traditions of his clan, Lapis is neither a lord nor a leader. He is an academic with a reputation for mingling with humans. Broken. Expendable.”
“Hey, now! Hisoka did handpick him,” Sinder defended.
Argent wasn’t impressed. “Dragonkind tossed humanity a scrap that would not be missed.”
“Their loss,” Sinder said firmly. “And not the point. We have a cabal simmering in there, and while they’re trying to be polite, the air’s thick with sway.”
“Tsk.” Argent’s fingers drummed against his thigh. “Very well. Jacques will do it.”
