Auremelia goes to meet her newest brother, Takaha, and spend a pleasant few hours in conversation. She is told that he believes some of the priests of the All Father consider him traitor, and he is not welcome within His walls.
Into the evening, she returns to the fortified manse of the Lord General and talks with her priest, Atakuro. He speaks to her of some of the concerns being noted within the Temple. He tells her that the Order of the Black Shield has been banned. He also discusses the Roseerian Revolt in the Fathers temple before the Unification wars. While in this conversation and in prayers, she is constantly attended by her fathers ever vigilant household staff.
