Dear Lady Alexandria,
It is with a sorrowful heart that I write to you. No doubt your brother and other members of the Frateris Sanguine have told you of your father’s orders to shun you. I do not fully understand the implications of you forging your own house, but rather than pride at your success it seems your father has been deeply wounded and feels betrayed.
I have vowed to honor your father’s wishes, and, as you know, I am a man of my word. This does not mean I have given up on our connection as sworn companions, merely that we have been called upon to lay it aside for a time. I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive your father his anger, and seek reconciliation with him. Likewise, for my part, I will offer him council toward forgiveness and reconciliation when he is ready to hear it.
Graf Trakt has made an exception to his request to cease all collaboration for me to fulfill my spiritual duties. That means should you wish to discuss matters of faith, the burdens you carry as a noblewoman, or the disposition of your soul, I remain at your service. Likewise, when it comes to all things pertaining to the Malefic, I am free to seek you out. We can continue to discuss your dreams, and so forth.
Sir Ansel Rundelhaus, Knight Protector, Ever Vigilant Order of Templars
