Chain of CommandEllyn (guard captain) and Aeril (travelling merchant) have a pleasant lunch. Their talk seems to be all business, and somewhat less than legal.
Temporarily DetainedGareth (guard) catches Dania (young thief) in the marketplace. They go into an alley where the guard takes something from the thief and lets him escape. They seem familiar with each other.
