The three stood together, surrounding the large table covered in maps and notes of strategy. Commander, Regent, and Ambassador, the pieces that played a large portion to driving the battalion where it needed and when.
In the coming weeks a small group would be sent out to meet the Sunrunner guard, ensuring their alliance even further by lending what little aid they could for good show. Their equipment and materials had slowly but surely been comprised and stored, ready for full on assault when ready.
Attacks from outsiders had been held off, losses were accounted for and damages were soon reconciled to original state.
As the nightly discussion came to an end, the final report given was that of their men and woman and the whereabouts of them all.
"We have reached a total of fourteen dead and six injured. So far, a pleasing number to have, though no number would be best it is expected."
Covaya listed, sighing softly as she placed the parchment with the report down upon the table after reading it out loud to the others.
Elenaris’ tilted her head slightly, glancing to her. “And what of the Magistrix?” She asked simply, her interest was light however there.
The Ambassador shook her head. "We have recalled all search parties with no luck after looking for weeks. Presumed dead."
With a sigh, Elenaris shook her head and rested it just within the space between her pointer finger and thumb, closing her eyes. "I had merely wished to keep the members of the Magistry alive, we are so few as is… especially those within my grasp. Perhaps she chose not to come afterall. It was a decision made on a whim and one that made little sense so suddenly. And such a decision has cost us. "
Alucieus placed his plated hands to the table, leaning over it with a huff. It was a waste of time and resources to search for one person to begin with. War is no time for mistakes like she made. You come in prepared or you get left behind and die. Simple. “
Covaya and Elenaris looked to each other with a brief nod in agreement.
"Though we may have failed to locate the Magistrix, we did come across Miss Ashkena… nearly frozen to bits poor thing. She is recovering well and will be ready to join the ranks in the coming weeks I am sure."
Covaya added, breaking away from the previous subject. The Commander had turned his back to them, though listening, he was in thought.
"Mm, it was lucky for her to be reunited with us."
Elenaris spoke before turning to Alucieus to see if there was anything further he needed to add.
"That is all for this evening. Tomorrow we discuss the route for the Sunrunner camp, not many will be taking this journey up so it must be precise."
The two Sin’dorei women nodded to him and then to each other in farewell.
"Shadows keep and Light guide you both." Elenaris offered before slipping from the tent.
Outside, she stood briefly, eyes raised to the sky blurred by the falling snow.
