Cycle of the Phoenix, 00-09, Year of the Emperor 481

A missive from House Almandine, Dawnstar

Duchess Samaia Almandine has died.

Tip of the Spear Samirah has been killed.

The Talvilainen of Dawnstar have today heard news that both their steadfast and noble leader, Duchess Almandine, as well as Tip of the Spear Samirah Almandine have passed on into the next life.

The venerable Duchess has been fighting to stay alive in recent years, her lifetime of battle, negotiations, peace-keeping and leading her people have taken their toll, cutting relatively short her life. She passed away shortly after hearing news that Imperial Forces had destroyed the malign threat from the End, for now at least. Her niece, Samirah, was in the vanguard of forces that confronted this extra-dimensional threat, and was mortally injured during the battle, passing away on Hermertian soil from her wounds.

Both died believing in something greater than themselves, protecting , defending and safeguarding their people's futures. Samaia, with her diplomacy and foreign affairs skills, was no stranger to battle when required. Samirah with her life time spent by her Duchess's side, providing counselling and effective martial prowess.


Both the Duchess and the Tip of the Spear positions remain vacant for the time being, until a successor has been chosen.

The passing of such nobility is truly a crime, especially in this time of rejoicing in the Empire's victory. Tip of the Spear Samirah Almandine at least can pass on knowing she was avenged.

To the House of Almandine,

We are deeply sorry to hear about the loss of the two most decorated members of your House. I knew Samaia quite well and she contributed immensely to the establishment of what is now the expanding Kingdom of Dunn. For this and for the time, friendship, and allegiance that was offered to my people I will always be grateful. We have lost a great member of Hermertia and a Sister of Valyria. May she and Samirah live forever in our minds and hearts.

Sincerely,
