Breath of life comes to Cassandra the Brawler. Mine aspiration is to be Ruler of Kings and yet I have suffered culpable negligence for the 7th time much to mine astonished. I am not in a fantastical era yet I have become it.

Greetings, Clara. I find myself feeling rather adrift at present. I admit that in our last encounter, I was rather curt and disrespectful. You have given me good advice that has helped me stay alive, despite great hardships. The truth is, I've never really had friends before. Certainly not ones claiming to be family! It's a bit strange, but a good sort of strange.
I've been traveling back and forth from the Town and Llanfair for work lately, as you probably know. Today, I'm on patrol outside Llanfair. We've hunted down kidnappers and marauders and I've made a decent amount of gold in the endeavor.
I wonder what you do to pass your days, Clara. I've always spent my time training, walking, hunting, and so on. I've never known anyone but Ma to live their lives much differently. But you dress nice, and walk in fairer circles than I. I wonder what sort of challenges you've faced to become so knowledgeable.
At any rate, I'm far from a poet so I'll not waste your time with too many poorly considered words. Fair thee well. Sister.
At last, we hath discovered the last of Jowan's children. This Cassandra was of considerable stature, but life hath been cruel to the child. She rests now forsooth: no longer shall the spawn of our former brother haunt this world, escaping the natural cycle of death.
We found this journal on Cassandra's body. It chronicles the child's adventure and efforts to become the Ruler of Kings. It was always Jowan's intention to create a spawn that would fulfill this destiny. To think that so many innocent lives were turned to such selfish purpose simply for being told it was their purpose from the day they were born. We knew our former friend to be rotten to the core, but this is despicable.
Soon, we shall return to the east. But first, we must finish the work we began so long ago. Cassandra's notes indicate that there is one more child of Jowan's that we must hunt down. This Clara will be the last innocent whose blood we must spill.
For the eternal rest of the damned and betrayed, we dedicate our life's blood.
