*The following is a transcript of thoughts based on Sarahni’s visit to Rinoha at Addlewood. Unless you are told about it ICly, then your character would not know what happened.*
Last night, I decided to take a trip to Addlewood to see Rinoha. I had heard whispers and half stories that something had happened, but not the whole thing. All I knew for sure was that Rinoha was being confined in a cell in her own room, and I was hoping to gain some clarity as to why. Walking up, I was greeted at the door by some unknown Kaldorei. I did not recognize him, and when asked, I was told that he was guarding Rinoha for the time being. His story didn’t seem to make much sense, especially seeing as he left as soon as I walked in.
Walking up the stairs, I almost couldn’t believe what I saw. Rinoha just sitting on the floor of her room, eyes glued to the fireplace, and a barred door replacing the usual wood one. Wards had been placed as well, though they seemed hastily done. I tried to strike up a conversation, but it was obvious this girl was losing herself to her own isolation. I asked who was guarding her, and she said that she had been left alone for a great deal of time. She then confirmed that the Kaldorei I saw was just…someone…who walked in. Where were the guards in all this? I’ll have to speak to Natheran about that.
Speaking to Rinoha was a chore in itself, which is very unusual for her. She seemed lost, stuck in her own mind. I’m not particularly surprised. Being kept alone in a room like that with very little contact would wear anyone out mentally. Though, I don’t think that’s the only trouble plaguing her. She and I continued to talk, and while I didn’t wan’t to press her for information, I admit I was very curious. What happened, exactly? What brought on this form of punishment?
She gave out snippets of information. She told me she had tortured members of her family, and seemed very clear on mentioning that she was not under mind control. Beyond that, she chose not to talk about it. My heart goes out to her. I understand that is a heinous crime in itself, but this isn’t the whole picture, I feel. Something bigger is going on, and it’s only a matter of time until we find out. Rinoha seems to be resigned to her “Fate”, as she claims to know what kind of punishment awaits her.
Our conversation ended after a while. I tried to include other topics to discuss. Anything to take her mind of this constant torment she’s putting herself through. It seemed to work? I don’t know. I can’t tell what’s really going on in her mind. I did promise to come back and visit her, though. Next time, with a very special package I’ve thought up.
