Phèdre is forced to wait on any further assignations until Delaunay finds a suitable guard.  Alcuin heals quickly and came to peace with Guy’s death.  Phèdre adds to her marque.  When she returns, Delaunay announces he has hired a new guard, a young Cassiline Brother by the name of Joscelin Verreuil.  Phèdre is horrified, in part because the Cassiline’s are disdainful of everyone, especially Servants of Naamah, in part because she fears him to be boring.  Though she finds him physically beautiful she finds his personality annoying, and he is no less thrilled with her. 

Now that Phèdre has protection, Delaunay is willing to send her out again.  This time, however, he wants her to approach Childric d’Essoms with a message, that Delaunay knows who killed Barquiel L’Envers sister.
