"Nice to make your acquaintance, Kayela," Hasmir nods at the Shoanti, then turns towards the strange warrior, and replies. "And you too, Mister Dedlock. No need for a sir, though, I have not been knighted just yet."
He gives the newcomers a bit more time to calm down and get themselves to speed on the will and the rest, and regards them with a curious expression. He raises an eyebrow slightly at "Kendy" - apparently the man was a lot more familiar with the Professor than him. Speaking of which, playing cards in a dead man's house? He does appear to be a harrower - curious enough - but courting misfortune like that is quite strange, the harrowers he knew were usually superstitious to a fault. Unless they were trying to get someone else to risk their luck, but that was another story...
"Indeed, although I think it sounds familiar to one I've heard along the way. Not a very common one, though," Hasmir says, interested. "Well, from what we've seen so far there does seem to be a... possibility of foul play in all that. There was a plan to go to the ruin and see if we can find something at the scene of this "accident."
Anyway, there is more," he continues with a sour look on his face. "There was some commotion around the Harrowstone memorial this morning, apparently someone wrote a "V" in blood, or something looking a lot like it. However, so far they've been unable to clean it off, and there was the slight feel of. ah, magic about it - Dryden believes it a necromantic residue of some sort. I checked with the sheriff, and he said that he'll have someone watching it from now on. However, what with magic being involved and us being strangers here, we should try to get to the bottom of this before it turns into mass hysteria. The sheriff said he wouldn't mind if we looked around a bit, as long as we don't cause any trouble. So, ah, is any of you a bit of a night owl?"
Can we tell she's speaking celestial if we don't know celestial, but have heard some before? It would be like knowing if someone's speaking French or German.
