Letter to Orphie Dradius, lead of Rangers

Deles Silam Serae Dradius,

I would like to request an interview at your convenience.
I am at the service of the Karae Tamiela Fera Fillia di Torani as Lady-In-Waiting and she has been kind enough to entrust me with the mission of learning more about the presumed author of this Matis map recently found in your archives, Ser Svaldi Bucci.
Not having been able to find any information on him, I take the liberty of bothering you.
I understand very well that your time is precious and I will not abuse it.
But I have no doubt that your answers will allow us to rediscover this character of our common history and the role of the Karae in the promotion of Arts and Culture will give him the place he deserves.


Liosta Be’Zephy
Karae’s Lady-In-Waiting

Woren siloy young homina!

By the tone of your letter, I am sure I may address you in this way.
Even if I cannot, alas, grant you an interview (my hours are very busy, especially at the moment) I will nevertheless try to meet your expectations.
First of all, you will allow me to be astonished that you did not find nothing in the Royal Archives. But perhaps, indeed, the times were too turbulent for certain documents not to disappear, by accident or not...
For Svaldi Bucci was a great homin and he deserves to find in our common history the eminent place that is in fact his own.
You have to know, indeed, that Svaldi was my predecessor at the head of the organization that we today call the Rangers.
But to better appreciate the importance of the character, it is necessary to go back even further in the past, at the time of the settlement of homins on the New Lands, after the Great Swarming and the exile that followed.
Svaldi was then in command of the Matis contingent of the armed force willed by the PMA and led by the four heroes of the Force of Fraternity. I think this name at least is familiar to you and I don't need to remind you of all that the guild it refers to has brought in the fight against the kitins.
It is on the remnants of this army, and by taking up its objectives, that the guild of the Atys Rangers was built. And Svaldi took over the leadership of the guild: his experience in command was designating him for this role.
He firmly held the helm in the storm raised by Jinovitch's accession to power in 2504, despite restrictions, despite pressure from all sides.
And when the time came to help Prince Yrkanis flee Matia to save his life, he did not hesitate for a moment.
Then, because Jinovitch's suspicion of him put all the Rangers at risk, he sacrificed, for the good of all, his position as Guide and disappeared, probably to join the rebels led by Yrkanis.
This is when I took the lead of the Rangers of Atys.

This is what you must retain from him, young Matisse: devotion to the common cause! Remember this when you report to the Karae!

Svaldi Bucci was great. Give him back the place he deserves!

Orphie Dradius,
Rangers' Guide

Wisely standing in front of the Karae, Liosta waited for her to finish reading this missive which was becoming more and more important to her.
This missive had brought her, first of all, the information that she was missing to be able to conclude the mission that the Karae had entrusted to her. This was invaluable to her.
But now, after the Chamber of Nobles, it had been adorned with an aura of mystery that made Liosta's eyes sparkle.
For, if rumors were to be believed, Orphie Dradius must have written it shortly before leaving on her final quest.
So, behind each word, she was looking for a hidden meaning, a revelation that she had to bring to light.

The Karae finally raised her head.
"I thank you Serae Liosta. I will ensure that the royal archives now correctly mention Ser Svaldi Bucci. But you wanted to add something.
- Sil, Nae Karae! Two actually. Am I allowed to go to the funeral of Serae Dradius if non-Rangers are welcome? I'd like to testify to her kindness in answering me when she was already planning her expedition.
- Of course, Serae! And the second one?
- Nae Karae, that kirosta sting that no one has ever seen! We must find out where it comes from! The SKA must have this honor! And you must be the one to reveal all this to the Atysian people! I am not a warrior, the Firm is a guild of craftsmen but I would like to help! What can I do, Nae Karae? "

Tamiela looked at her lady-in-waiting and hid a smile. So much youth. So much ardor. All that was left was to temper it all with a touch of dignity. Add a touch of self-control. She sometimes regretted not, no more, being able to act with such spontaneity.

"Come on. Serae Wu She-Peng did your instruction, you told me. She certainly instructed you on this kind of case. If you can't, or won't, do something yourself, then find out who can take care of it. And make sure he or she shares your goals. In this case, you probably don't even have to look far. You mentioned the SKA. What is their opinion on the subject? Have they offered to help with the research? I doubt the Rangers will give up this Sting entirely, but they pride themselves on letting all willing parties participate in their work. So let's not make them languish."

Liosta had been impressed by the pyre and the ceremony. She had so much faith in Jena that she was inclined to forget that the Powers could not always bring the homins back.
It seemed to her that burning that body was so barbaric, so final...
Serae Dorothée had insisted on receiving a copy of the letter. She also owed it to the memory of Serae Dradius. So she began to copy the message.
