Correspondence between Cecilla Havercroft and Broderik Camden

To Whom I Have Loved as a Son,

I was mournful when I heard that you and your companions had so swiftly left the company of my family. I was told by the stable hands that they had overheard your intentions to move westward to Ireland on your question. I have penned this letter in earnest, hoping that it may find you.

You were sincerely missed at the funeral of the once-Lord Havercroft. It was a somber occasion, as is to be expected, but I would have liked to see you there. My life now lacks a proper man aside from you, and tending to my ailing son stretches me thin at the best of occasions. However, it seems that he heard my silent plea, and has been walking for brief periods about the castle halls. Mathus told me of your advice to him, of his duty that he now holds as Lord, and I like to imagine that it helped.

I assume from your sudden disappearance that you did not succeed in your quest to take the life of the Hag who doomed my husband. I know not why you surrendered, but take for granted that you believed it to be the best course of action. I have since dispatched a few fighting men in the direction that you were sent, but they have not yet found anything.

I hold no ill will towards you. I ask you for nothing more than to keep an old widow in your thoughts, and find my son, your mentor, Clemente, if you should find the time.

With Love,
Lady Cecilla Havercroft

Hello Lady Havencroft,

It saddens me that I could not attend the funeral, but you can trust that my spirit was with you. I am glad to hear that little Mathus has been getting better, I knew he was a fighter he just needed to have fire lit beneath his feet. I would be there with you when I could, it would sadden me deeply to see the castle fall in other hands then ours. I will visit you again shortly to see what we can do with this.

Yours, Sir Broderik Camden, survivor of the battle of Sluys, Leader of the band of the United Knights

My Dearest Broderik,

I hope in earnest that you are well. My heart was so pained by your letter that I leaped up and screamed, forgetting myself for a moment and fearing that I may have lost you. That you and your companions were imprisoned in your own country is absurdity in the highest degree. I have never known a more English soul in all my days, save perhaps for my late husband and my beloved son Clemente.

I thank God for the Angel in Black who came to your rescue. Lord Chalk, the villainous old screw, surely got what he deserved for so easily being mislead by falsehoods, even if they came from His Majesty's lips.

I leave for Windsor Castle immediately that I may plead your case to His Majesty personally. I could not live with myself if I allowed you to be a refugee from your own land. My youngest will have to act in my stead while I am gone. He seems still on the mend and my trusted advisers will make up for his lack of experience.

Write to me again when you can. I will tell you of His Majesty's verdict when I get answers from him.

With Unyielding Love,
Lady Cecilla Havercroft

My Dearest Broderik,

I have been to Windsor and the King has heard my cause. He had heard already in a letter from one of your companions of the treasonous acts of Lord Chalk, and did therefore need not hear from me directly apart from my own desires for my worries to be laid to rest. He knows not yet how Chalk had become so confused, but he intends to discover the truth.

The King assured me that your unique band is close to his heart and that he will take it upon himself to ensure your continued safety. I had wished to take more time discussing specifics with him, but it seems as though he has grown rather preoccupied with the company of a strange Lord I have never heard of before, named Evynwood. Apparently he had been searching for him for some time, and was delighted that Evynwood had simply come to him after so much time.

I cannot wait around Windsor Castle any longer. I need to get home to my children, but I do so rest assured that the whole of England had not gone mad, and is still a safe haven for you.

With Unyielding Love,
Lady Cecilla Havercroft

To My Lady Havencroft.,

That is very good to hear! We will be home in england shortly with news of our journey thus far. I have always known that this quest was blessed by god himself but now we have proof. We have united under a single banner as you know. The banner of the United Knights. But given powers by God himself. I am a different person now, for the better. This does not mean that i have discarded you or the king or England herself. I will be first into the frey should war against you or England ever happen.

I trust things have been well at home? Is Mathus getting better? I hope your duties have not been too tiresome with me asking you to runaround like my person liaison.

I have not heard of this Lord. Evynwood? What does he want with the king? More land? Have you heard anything?

With Love,
Sir Broderik Camden, The Fire knight, Survivor of the Battle of Sluys, Leader of the band of the United knights.
