Frère Sulpice made his simple PER+Awareness roll of 6+. He waits, until Daria appears to be comfortably seated again. Then he raises and speaks:
Lady Daria, thank you for receiving me in Triamore!
Dear Sodales of the Reconstructed Order of Hermes, dear Sophie - Lady Daria is correct about my studies. I am a scholar of ancient languages from Paris University, who stumbled upon texts that go back for more than two thousand years, and were assembled and recited already by king Salomo. They were commented upon and added to at the times of the Apostles and of the Church Fathers - but the professors of Paris University considered them gibberish.
The reason for that I understood only, when the Parisian sodales of the Reconstructed Order found and contacted me: I have 'the Gift', which allows me to make sense and use of these orations. I then joined these sodales, as Lady Daria well knows.
I can tell you now, that reaching out to the Lord in ancient orations may get you answers! These obliged me to change my life. First I had only the Prophets and the Apostles as models: trying to emulate their virtues on my own would soon have crushed me. But then I found, that just last year the liitle friars of Francis of Assisi had come to Paris, and their way of following the Apostles I could make mine as well. So I espoused Lady Poverty, gave my wealth away, and joined them. To put my studies to their use, I was ordained to priesthood by the archbishop of Paris.
As a little friar, a priest and your sodalis I offer you my help to preserve Triamore. Being a priest, I cannot do that as a knight. Being a little friar, I cannot do this even as a ministerialis. I owe obedience to Fra Francesco in Assisi, Fra Pacifico in Paris and to the prince-bishop in Liège, who currently is not even aware of my presence here. But I can be your chaplain for room, board and the opportunity to study: both in Triamore's excellent library and outside it.
The prince-bishop of Liège, Hugues de Pierrepont, is a colorful person: as lord, bishop and warrior. He led the troops of Liège and Huy successfully against feudal armies, attended the Fourth Council of the Lateran, and might use the implementation of its decisions in his domain to remove obstacles to his power. So maybe you use the advice of your chaplain in political and scholarly matters as in matters of the soul.
Then Frère Sulpice takes his seat again, serene but attentive.
