Chapter 21 Odds and Ends

  • After dropping off Felicity at her lodging and parting from Tarsus, who went home to bid farewell to his guardian, Damon returned to the Pig and Whistle Inn. The sleuth he had hired had returned with welcome news about his person of interest. 
  • Apparently, the Vigils had found a young lad wandering in cuppa, asking for food and water. While charity was allowed, begging was forbidden in Pago and Modo by order of the City Governors. Violators were arrested and produced before the magistrate for a trial. The nomad had been found guilty of additional offenses during his trial, as he refused to reveal his parentage or citizenship. He had been sentenced to a month of incarceration in the City Vigil Prison in the Agora. It was to be followed by an appraisal after he had served his sentence. 
  • The magistrate’s men had carried out some investigation to find that the child belonged to a Modo patrician. Through the Modo embassy situated in the Agora, they had opened up a negotiation with the party. The magistrate had demanded a hefty price for the boy’s return. If not paid in full, the child would be sold into slavery, as he had broken several laws during his time in the city. But the affair was likely to take over a month. The boy would languish in the custody of the Vigils, who were not known to be affectionate men.
