(BTW, your orders to investigate Justinius' disappearance did not come from Goliard; they came from Archmaga Amphelisia, your great-grandparens.)
One of the custodes steps forward at Sophronia's command-- but not the one she thought was Alpha. He stands at attention while he receives his admonishment. As Sophronia chastises the soldier, he has the grace to look embarrassed. Finally, he speaks. "The maga misunderstands. We are here not by her request, but by order of Legatus Nyrikki. Beta! The letters. Gamma! The packages."
A second custos steps forward and proffers a scroll case, while a third pulls a medium-sized leather case from a saddlebag and hands it to the maga. Within the scroll case is a security clearance in Alpha's name, sealed and signed by Archmaga Amphelisia, and two letters- one addressed to you from Josef, and the other addressed to Alpha from Sophia's grandparens; in the leather case is a lovely navy blue woolen cloak lined with silk and trimmed with ermine fur, and (whatever you've spent your build points on).
Optio Alpha, custos Assessoris:
I understand Justinius has taken to fraternizing with his stipatores since departing the Hibernian coventum domum; you may think yourself a friend to my erstwhile filius. The freedom you have thusfar enjoyed ends now. In Justinius' absence, you report directly to me, and will serve me in all matters until such a time as my discipulus is located, after which new stipatores will be assigned him, and you and your auxilium will return to Coeris to serve me indefinitely.
Sophia filia Justinius will be taking up residence at Gallus Florensis, in furtherance of the House's interest in Britannia. She will be tasked to seeking Justinius, and continuing his work in the unfortunate event that he has failed. You are to assist her in her assignment and ensure that she does not stray from her duties. It has come to my attention that her advancement has been subpar; you are to encourage her to rectify the oversights in her post-provocatio studies. (He includes a list of assigned reading.) You may address my grandfilia in the style she prefers, upon her completion of Magus Invictus. See also that she receives the Tunica Verditia I have sent on behalf of my mater.
Alpha, your service to the House has been exceptional in the past, but any tool will rust without proper care. Effective immediately, you and your men will change your drills to the following regimen: (a long description of military exercizes follows)
Justinius' final orders, Sophia's mission, and yours, are of utmost security. You are to speak to no one outside of the collegium of your orders. Should you be questioned or given orders from within the House but outside the collegium, you may inform them that your clearance comes directly from Archmaga Amphelisia. You may experience some issues in this regard with Goliard in particular; I have enclosed a security clearance with my mater's seal.
You will report to me monthly by way of Justinius' scrying glass, on the last day of every month.
Legatus Archmagus Nyyrikki filius Amphelisia doctrinae Tremeris, Praeses Assessorum
(Note: the Tunica Verditii is an item of quality that grants a +4 Protection bonus. Nyyrikki is Legatus-- he would not have sent you such an item and demanded you study more Parma, unless he expected that Justinius is truly in Deep Shit.)
