Role in the Story

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from Initiate's Trial.

Third Age 5922: Asandir locates Daliana sen Evend here in the midst of a knife throwing wager.

Third Age 5923: The Light's Hope retinue from Erdane seeks quarters here, denied a high state welcome from Lysaer. Daliana tracks them here to assess their danger herself. She interrupts a covert meeting between the Light's Hope and a Koriani courier, throwing a knife that destroys the courier's warded package, a fetch of Arithon s'Ffalenn. The ensuing backlash sets His Radiance's sleeves on fire and he declares her a minion of Shadow. Daliana allows herself to be taken into custody in hopes of warning Lysaer of the conspiracy.

During Daliana's trial, a barmaid named Hattsey and the barkeep both testify that Daliana used witchcraft. Later, a Red Cockerel drudge enters the trial disguised as the magistrate's wife, a ploy by Traithe to highlight the uncertainty of eyewitnesses.
