Shyran certainly was aware of how dragons were respected and dragonriders were the highest level one could become in Walled Hold besides the Mother. Yet given what happened recently and the claim Mother actually poisoned a goldrider Shyran couldn't really put much stock in how those in power at Walled Hold actually valuing dragonic life. Unfortunately it also had her doubt the life of Day Wher would have any value to the Justicars when they pass sentence.
"I'm more worried they will kill Reselde simply because he'll likely do everything he can to protect Isolde, as any good Day Wher would to protect their bond in danger." Shyran glanced over at Pacaran who nodded. He would die to protect Shyran, if it came down to it.
When minutes dragged by and Micah made the comment Adonis was writing a long message, Shyran let out a slow breath. "I hope he just doesn't feel it's worth his time to respond..."
The knock at the door was a surprise, causing Shyran to start and turn towards it. Pacaran rose to his feet, alert for any danger. When Micah called for whoever knock to enter, Pacaran relaxed, trusting the Patriarch wouldn't allow an enemy in.
At the sight of the tall Justicar, Shyran showed her respect. The only thing that controlled a Justicar's actions was the Law, even if the Law wasn't the same at Atricis as it was at Walled Hold. "Justicar Adonis, thank you for coming here in person," Shyran responded. "I certainly do understand the law of Walled Hold and from what I heard about the charges placed upon Isolde are grave and if proven true, her fate would be dire. Reshelde however didn't take part in her crimes and likely knew nothing about them so is innocent of any charges. However, being a loyal Day Wher, he'll want to defend his Bonded. If he prefers to end his life along with his bonded, if that should be the punishment decided, he should be allowed to do so with dignity and Honour. But he is part of the Day Wher Pack here, he may wish to live his days with the Pack and honor his fallen Handler that way."
Shyran turned slightly and indicated Pacaran who rose to move beside her, being careful not to crowd Darrow or the other humans. Placing her hand on his shoulder, Shyran introduced him. "This is Pacaran, he's a rare type of Daywher who's specialty is Diplomacy. What I hope to do is be allowed to stand for Reshelde, to give him a chance to decide how he should proceed should the Trial against his Handler end in a guilty verdict and the worse possible sentence is given. In a way, having us there would ensure Reshelde doesn't try and take out as many of Walled's guards as he can to protect Isolde before he's overwhelmed."
<My Packbrother may not be as formidable as our winged kin but when it comes to defending our bonded, we are as fierce and tenacious as any dragon defending their rider.>
Pacaran spoke to Adonis. He didn't like to speak with humans he wasn't familiar with but there were times he knew it was necessary. Fortunately being this close did make it easier.>I do not wish any harm to befall him but if there is a diplomatic way to ensure his life and possible death are dealt with dignity then my Handler and I should be allowed to help, even if just to limit or eliminate potential harm to those assigned to guard Reshelde and his Handler.>
