Perhaps what we were doing was a metaphor for what’s going on in Hollandus Landing.
Was there a Valor-like figure controlling the city without us knowing?
I’d certainly hate to look like one of those creatures who were under asylum from Sybari the unfairly named Dragon Witch despite being a dragon-humanoid woman and knowing magic.
It would really suck if some people were othered like how those creatures were.
I’m sure my grandparents would relate to that all too well, and I thanked God they survived an elected Valor decades ago.
