Battlemaster of Sanctuary, the First Grove
It has come to my attention that my charge, Ivy, is to be expelled from Sanctuary and the First Grove. I understand she has destroyed the Skybridge and disrupted the lives of those living in the First Grove, but even so, she is much too valuable an asset to throw away. Please reconsider.
I respectfully await your response.
To: Warden Kynd Battlemaster of Valla, the Fifth Grove
Well met, Warden. Regretfully, I must hold fast to my decision. She is powerful, but also angry and disruptive. I can no more contain her than I can a thunderstorm. Without discipline, she is not suited for the Calling. If her anger persists, she may very well be a danger not only to her fellow initiates but the citizens of the First Grove. As much as it pains me, as a Warden I cannot risk the safety of my people by keeping her here. Her expulsion from Sanctuary and the First Grove must stand.
May the Blessings of Our Lady Be with You, High Warden Naya
To: High Warden Naya Battlemaster of Sanctuary, the First Grove
I am a man of few words, High Warden. And I realize now that has created a barrier of misunderstanding between us. When I left Ivy in your charge, I was fresh off the battlefield and in no mood to talk. I should have told you the whole story.
Not only was I at the battle of Acacia, but so was Ivy. She stood with her parents as they defended their posts on Acacia's ramparts. When they fell, Ivy took their place; her fury willed the trees to hold fast the orcs as she shot them down. She would have remained there until the end if Warden Talos hadn't knocked her senseless. Even then it took the both of us to drag her away.
Ivy's losses would have demented a lesser person. Her power is only overshadowed by her will. She cannot be expelled. Someday, many seasons from now, those initiates she is "disrupting" may be alive only because she was there to lead them.
To Warden Kynd Battlemaster of Valla, The Fifth Grove
Good tidings Warden Kynd,
Bless you for bringing this to my attention. The poor child! She told me nothing of it. I understand her anger now. Perhaps more compassion in her tutelage is warranted. Ivy will stay in Sanctuary, and I will make her learn. A thunderstorm she may be, but a little rain never hurt anyone.
That being said, I counter your uncharacteristic optimism with my uncharacteristic cynicism. By "lead them" are you suggesting that she may one day be a Warden? I find that highly unlikely. A Warden must have an inner peace, a respect for nature, and a compulsion to protect life at the expense of her own. I only see the latter in Ivy--but she is young and perhaps you know something I do not.
I sense now your empathy for your fellow elves. The Meeting of the Groves is three days hence. You will be there, yes? There is another matter that I will bring up for a ruling; I'm sure you and I will see eye-to-eye on it!
