Speaking to the room, using a measured respectful tone, "I'm of a mind to agree with Adeline, the Calebais situation is sensitive to the wider world, so a greater risk to the Order. Where as Magus Jerome is missing or dead, and probably not getting worse. We could send a small group to investigate both, or use two groups to see what is occurring, and report back to the council before committing to a significant action. That said, I have some questions."
Morat then attempts to address the Redcap directly, "Magus Ash could you please indulge me to clarify at who's request you came to our covenant? You said that the investigation of Calebais is at the behest of the Order; so it would assist us to understand who, and our political position before we embark", as he says political position Morat is indicating with his hand politely to the two Magi making good points and counter-points before he spoke. "That way we can make a difficult situation better."
"And also a question on Magus Jerome's disappearance. Do you know whom in the Order has decided that Magus Jerome is deceased and with what evidence and time frame? Any Magus going missing is alarming, however declaring a magus deceased is a far more significant decision. I'd not be surprised to find it was political."
