    In the Arcane Sanctum

    Evo assesses the pile of paper he's shuffled and reshuffled through the last several interruptions. He shoves the pile aside decisively. "No, I think I'm at a good stopping place. What's on your mind, Marshal?" He catches on to Arlyne's anxiety and softens his tone, "Everything okay, Arlyne?"

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    Evo shrugs. "Any thing is possible, but it's rare to travel the mists, even for a Fae Lord of Portals. Might be worth asking."

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    " 'To their home.' This tells me two things." Evo glances up at the gathered crowd, decides not to shoo anyone. "First, there is a chance, however small, that Jinn is quite alive and well; I would expect some personal item, or a more compassionate note if he had perished across the mists. It's...

    "And it was only this note and your house banners? Nothing else at all? This is important."

    "What, precisely, does this letter say?" Evo sighs quietly. "I need details."

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    As the whirlwind of the clanmates blows into the Sanctum, a bemused Evo carefully sets aside his paperwork. "Perhaps," he says as Rohnan finishes, "you had best start at the beginning, and tell me what happened. Unless you would like to wait." Evo regards Rohnan critically.

    "You're too kind." Evo cracks a smile, and begins to organize his paperwork, again. "I'm sure you'll have time to do some research, and still look into your mysterious fire. But when you're ready, I'll introduce you to Dwevdi, the keeper of the Library Annex here at the Lux, and the only...

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    Evo laughs somewhat awkwardly, "I died there. I knew the risk, and it was not... unexpected." He absently rubs his hand along his ribcage. "We are not *people* to the Iron Lord. More like *things* to be inspected, appreciated, used, and discarded. Much like his own creations. He is passionate...

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    The magus screws up his face in concentration as he reads the music. "Five flats... That's, damn it, um, B flat minor." He clumsily hums his way through the melody, like a child reading a difficult book. But his eyes light up as he reads, and by the time he's done, a bit of a smile is tugging at...

    "Do not force Mal to answer, but I think they would be in the best position to tell you why they left." Evo looks suddenly tired. "I wish I had all the answers, Elly. I'd even settle for knowing that I was asking the right questions." He focuses into the distance. "I have to remind myself I'm...

    "Ohh, I could have used those books a few years ago," Evo pines. "I suppose I'll settle for 'Running a Library and/or City-State in Seven Easy Steps, with Pictures'." Evo levels his gaze for a moment: "You are asking for help, and that's the right thing to do. As you've seen already, we will...

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    "I'd probably head straight for the Strategy and Tactics section, 'How to Cover Your Tracks With Fire.' But I do tend toward the pragmatic, if not outright pessimistic." Evo smiles gently. "No leads yet?"

    "That should keep you busy for a while," Evo peers over the desks. "How goes the search?"

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    "Keep me apprised of your progress in both endeavors, and I'll call on you if I find things which need doing." Evo sits amid the pile of papers and shuffles a few, halfheartedly. "But first, " he grumbles, "paperwork. " "If that's all?" He waits, inquisitively.

    "Good you thought to mention it-- I've asked that only Adeptus or higher level Sanctum members have blanket permission to study under the Paragons," Evo smiles -- "but I'll ask them to make an exception in your case. Please keep in mind that it is a privilege and a responsibility to study these...

    Evo nods as he listens. "It may be several months before we can meet again as a group. Perhaps you can visit Cassiopeia in the meantime and relay this conversation to her. Assuming she accepts, I think this will be a good assignment for both of you."

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    Evo reflects a moment, not very well hiding his disappointment at the reminder of Mal's resignation. Soon, his eyes brighten, and his expression softens. "This is the eagerness to lead that I asked for. Generally the Sanctum won't assign students to Lore Seekers, and that's because there's more...

    In the Arcane Sanctum

    A familiar head appears from behind a mountain of paperwork. "Magus. I am still in the singular, as much I could use another of me to catch up on--" he gestures vaguely. Evo stands and stretches. "What can I do for you, Rohnan?"

    Waiting outside the Sanctum

    "Let's speak privately, then, Jinn." Evo gestures to the study and closes the door behind them.

    Waiting outside the Sanctum

    Evo lets the chatter flow around him, and comments as needed. Jinn: "If I'm looking great, you're a unicorn." Calan: "Until you advance to Celestial Armsman let's not formally assign you students; but you're doing exactly right by rising to the opportunity to teach. Go ahead and share first...
