Towards the end of summer, one of the fishermen finds Sanno (the river otter, Maribus' familiar) collapsed on a riverbank. The little beast is brought to the covenant doctor, Chayyim, who sends word to each of the magi, by way of Daniel the messenger:
"The doctor says Sanno is dying but he can't find anything wrong with him. I mean, other than the fact he's dying. Physically he should be fine but he is dying all the same. Chayyim asks whether you might know any magics to help Sanno as he is in terrible pain and probably won't last a week at this rate. I'm to show you to the doctor's house if you can come."
Does anyone respond?
