How is life at court? How is the duke? How is the duchess? I trust the summer fashions are most amusing, et cetera. I have been well enough, considering the circumstances. The roof has begun to leak, two of my goats are pregnant, and it would appear that I am still exiled indefinitely from the kingdom, on pain of death should I enter again, but anyway--
You may be wondering why I choose to write you now. However, I suspect you already know.
Last night, a young man arrived at my door. He was glassy-eyed, rather disheveled and clearly delirious, and seemed to be suffering from all signs of the early stages of lycanthropy.
Am I correct in thinking this man is your brother? I met Lucas only a handful of times, the last being four years ago, but there is something familiar about the poor wretch's face. There has been talk, even out here in the Thregian Mountains, that your brother was consorting with the Wolf Prince. I have always dismissed it as nothing more than talk, but now I wonder. If true, surely you understand the seriousness of the situation. Even if it is not, you are surely aware that the King has vowed, not only to destroy all such beasts, but those who attempt to aid of conceal them as well.
I would very much like to know why you have sent a fledgling werewolf to my door. I would also like to know how in the world you believe I can help this creature, and more to the point, why in the world I would care to. After all, you and your kin did little to aid me when I stood accused of poisoning the Archduke. Is there some debt I owe you that I have forgotten? Certainly nothing comes to mind.
Three days til the full moon, Valia. You should write back quickly. If he injures any of my goats, I am cursing you and all your descendants til the Flood-day.
