She bites her lip, hiding a smile. "I think she's just... eccentric. She struck me as one of those people who can be serious without being somber, if that makes sense. She was thinking through things with the rest of us, she was just also making random side comments."

She hesitates, watching his face. "I have one last question for you too. It's... personal."

"Ah!" He looks relieved, his face relaxing at her explanation. "Eccentric I can handle. One has to, if one lives among mages," he adds with a wry smile. "I did try to feel out her thought-process a little during the debacle with the ransom note but, well. That did not go entirely to plan."

At her declaration, he blinks and takes on a more guarded expression. "Oh?"

She leans onto the arm of the couch, rests her head on her hand, and meets his gaze with a frank expression. "What is she to you?"

He frowns, more than a little confused. "Laerdya?"

She raises an eyebrow. "Gwyn."

His lips part but he doesn't answer; he seems momentarily at a loss and unsure what to say.

"I became commissioner of the Feytower when she was very young," he explains, finding his words slowly. "I don't have children of my own and there aren't many at the Feytower. Some families live in student apartments around the bordering wall, but most of the wizards with small children choose to live off-site rather than take the various risks associated with raising a child around people who throw fireballs for fun and profit. Gwyn is like family to a lot of us. We've watched her grow up. Been hugged around the knees by her. Tripped on her toys when she left them on the stairs." He swallows at the memory, blinking rapidly. "She's Laerdya's daughter but that... doesn't mean I don't care about her. Are you surprised?"

"No," she says gently, watching his face. "So that's why you moved your quarters to the same floor as hers?"

His expression is one of genuine confusion. "Moved my quarters? No, I'm sorry but someone has misinformed you. Those quarters have always been mine."

Gathering up his things, he bows again and kisses her hand. "Thank you again. I think I may sleep easier tonight than I have in weeks."

"No? My mistake," she murmurs. "Perhaps it's based on the elven alphabet."

At his parting words, however, she softens. "I truly hope you do. Have a good night, Luther."
