Portia: *pulls off her hood* It would seem that you are quite in debt to some of the gentry in Baron. I’ve seen your type before. Loose cannons.

Kip: In debt? In what way?

Brahoc: *tosses a file of information on the table* He is hardwired to attack Golbez whether it’s sensible or not. Lately, he’s been holed up in Sam’s posing as a cook and dishwasher. Also he has been draining Mysidian mages who visit Baron of their magic… for some reason.

Vake: So why is that, Kip? Why do you crave energy so much?
