A few days have passed since Csilla has completed her Gauntlet and received the accolade of her House as a maga. She has been given a little time to spend with her husband and children while the superiors of House Tremere consider how to best use her abilities and choose an assignment for her.
A summon finally comes, to join her pater in his office. Surely that is the time where her future becomes known to her.
As is usual for him, Janus is reading dispatches and reports when Csilla joins him. He nods at her to acknowledge her arrival. After a moment more spent reading, he puts back the letter he is currently reading into a leather folder and closes it. He looks up, obivously pondering the importance of what he has just read, then turns his attention to her. Surprisingly, he rises and simply tells her, "Walk with me, filia," before leading her out of his office. After a short walk, they find themselves on top of the wall enclosing the fortress of Coeris.
"We have need of additional assets in the Rhine," says Janus after some time spent admiring the mountainous view outside the fortress. "And the House thinks that it would be a suitable place for you to serve. There are many news coming from that Tribunal, but as yet I am unsure what exactly is going on. So we need more information on the mundane activities happening there. Particularly after what happened in Constantinople, it is felt that we need to know more about what the nobility is doing in the Holy Roman Empire."
"You will not be leaving immediately, however. For you to be useful, we want you to learn the language. We will also be preparing a mundane identity for you to travel there. The plan is for you to leave in about six months' time." Janus hesitates then turns to Csilla, "There is one more thing. We are not sure whether it might be better for you to leave your children here, or integrate them into your cover. They would almost certainly be safer here, but it might be some time before you can see them. Give it some thought and let me know what you'd prefer."
