“Please, your Imperial Highness, I di---“ The citizen hadn’t had time to finish what he wanted to say; the axe descended and yet another head rolled onto the ground. Emperor Lavander was quite pleased by the sight of it; a wide smile rested on his lips. Another one of those foolish, weak human beings that tried to talk about the Emperor had been executed to set an example to the citadel. Ruling by fear was the easiest way to go and Lavander proved that he could put his money where his mouth was. Of course, he had a little help from his Jaeger Terminas members whose life he would put in their hands. There was nothing that could be done. He was untouchable, or so he thought anyway. Sitting upon his throne, he was discussing with one of the members of court about the uproar of rebels arriving. Unimpressed with the news, the Emperor dismissed him without hesitation after he heard what he wanted. He didn’t want information about the rebels, it wasn’t his problem. The members of Jaeger Termina would probably want to hear the rest. In fact, Sirolos had been present with the other two members, in the back, listening in. Narrowing his eyes as the court members left, he turned to his two comrades with a concerned glare. “Candlelight. They’re growing stronger by the day and their numbers are going up. Keeping this bastard alive is a hard task.” He said with disdain. Lazerous shrugged, not sure what to think about it. It meant there were a lot of new recruits they could simply slaughter and scare the rest away. The Emperor got up from his throne and went to go see his three assassins, a wicked, amused smile on his face. “What are the lots of ya still doing here? Get out there and get these… rebels.” --------- Gerald had to gather the members of Candlelight as fast as possible. Someone had spilled the beans about their presence within the citadel and they needed to act fast. He needed to act before the Jaeger Terminas would fall on them. Hopefully, this meeting would help the newer recruits to the rebellion to stay strong even at the news.
