“A victory deserves a great wine. The bitterness of coffee suits defeat. I must be the first lord of Tytani in eight generations that has tasted this.”
“He lacks personality and is molded into a predefined shape.”
“Jouslain has a strong presence, but sometimes I do not know what he is thinking.”
“Zalisch has the most powerful style and personality and he is a good commander on the battlefield, but lacks in other fields.”
“Idris is the youngest of them all, full of spirit and talent, but his enthusiasm might offend others.”
“This was your defeat and not Tytania’s.”
“I do not blame the defeat on you. Battles have victories and defeats, but we must have courage to face defeat.”
Zalisch believes that the lack of true Tytania spirit in Ariabart caused the defeat.
Nevil Tytania won a battle of Brownkurt 200 years ago.
The second lord was Nuli Tytania, a calm intellectual lord that purged 65000 rebels. Being good at the battle is one thing, but calculating, realistic eyes are also needed.
Huric graduated from Euria’s merchant ship college at the age of 20 and worked as a clerk on several cruise and cargo ships.
“Isn’t the outcome of the battle depends on the enemy as well?”
“Why did they make such an inexperienced person a commander? Wasn’t it to loose a battle?”
“You have a good eye, Jouslain.”
“Idiot! Why did you win?!”
“How about you also hide me at your place tonight?”
“Tytania does not favor blood.”
“Euria wanted to reconcile with Tytania in secret while maintaining their pride. They were going to fight and lose as planned, then blame the fight on radicals that got out of control.”
Idris suggests to invite Huric to join Tytania. If he agrees, he’ll be met well, if not – he’ll be punished.
Ajman places Ariabart on home detention 😛
Note the reaction of the dukes. Zelisch and Idris go away immediately, anxious to capture Huric, while Jouslain remains.
Ariabard: If you were there, would you have been able to win that absurd battle? Jouslain: You should learn from your battle – I have nothing you could learn from.
How life without Tytania would feel like?
Jouslain might have what is needed to become a leader, but…
“Tytania is powerful and prideful, but what purpose do its power and pride serve?”
“Tytania only contributes to Tytania.”
“Tytania will one day rely on me, but that will be at the darkest hour of Tytania.”
This episode showed us how each duke interpreted the defeat. While Zalisch and Idris refer to factors such as spirit and calculation, Jouslain is able to see the root of the matter and expose the plot of the enemy. It looks like he might be the next head of the clan, but Ajman has some reservations that are not clear yet.
