Prayers were said the rest of that day to help ease Kyrsa's passage into the afterlife.  Surely her heart would be judged worthy by Ma'at, and her spirit would enter into its eternal rest.  And in the morning, it was learned that another loyal Fan-Bearer would join her on this journey; for the courtier Ariadne was also dead, at the hands of the Soldiers of the Moon.

Not another one! We must find these Soldiers of the moon and send them to the afterlife! I bet Imogen is one of them!

Returning from the ceremony, Imogen looked somber, and shook her head, staring solemnly at Paladin as he cried her name. "It wasn't me. But your shouting does make me wonder.. What does your loud voice try to hide, Paladin?"

As Kyrsa was beheaded and Ariadne was found dead Xandi cringed. Knowing she was a part of the court who had sent Kyrsa an innocent Fan Bearer to her death made her feel a sadness in her heart.

It was to bad that the God's were not with them in their decision. Perhaps magic had been implored to misdirect attention from the guilty, placing it on the innocent. Remiel's request to RA had gone unanswered it seemed. Why would the sun god ignore a loyalist? Perhaps Remiel was no loyalist? Xandi wasn't sure who to trust. She voted for Remiel.

Still having no idea who might be responsible for the death, Mithlomwen couldn't help but wonder if perhaps Paladin was protesting so loudly because he had something to hide.

Sinera shakes her head sadly as she realizes that she was led astray by Remiel. Indeed, he must have been led astray by the gods for some reason - the only reason she could fathom was that he was indeed a traitor.

Myobi found herself torn between the two likely suspects. Paladin due to his loud protestations, seemingly much more insistent than the situation truly called for. Then Remiel, who's fated decision had led so many others to unknowingly sentence an innocent to a premature death. The only respite she could take from her guilt was that Kyrsa's spirit was surely happily watching over them at this very moment.

One by one the others spoke, giving their opinion as to who the traitor in their midst could be.  She looked at Paladin who has spoken out the loudest and pointed his finger at Imogen.  Was he the traitor and a murderer?  Moving slowly and silently to the center of the court, knowing others were watching, waiting to hear her speak, she stopped and lowered her head, clasped her the talisman as she had before and prayed for guidance.

"I still have no wish to accuse anyone, least of all a friend or an innocent.  We were wrong about Kyrsa and we could be wrong once more.  I feel my gods have turned from me and my rely on my own devices."  She turned and looked at each of the others then spoke.  "It must be Remiel else why would he say the gods chose Kyrsa?"

Remiel just shook his head sadly.  "I...don't understand it.  Why would Ra send me a false signal? Has he not heard my prayer?" 

He paled, listening to the lies and conspiracy leveled against him.  "Friends, I know that it was my omen that led us astray, but do not hold me to blame.  The gods are capricious, their capacities ineffable.  Perhaps it is our suspicion and paranoia that has caused them to turn a deaf ear to us.  We must look to those we least suspect."

He leveled his crook, emblazoned with the Ankh of Reincarnation, at Moirae.  "Friends, it is Moirae who has been misleading you with deceptions.  You were right to suspect her initially."

Imogen leaned against a white sand stone column, one arm draped over her stomach. The dark eyes trailed from Paladin to Remiel and despite the loud mouthed accusations of the former she dealt Remiel a thoughtful nod. "I find your reasoning persuasive, Remiel." She stated. "These traitors stalk the shadows. It might be true that Paladin is one of them, hiding in plain sight as the desert cobra basks in the sunshine, but I shall change my vote to Moirae for now."

With the courtiers at an impasse, it was decreed that the Priestess of Hathor, the goddess of prophecy, must be consulted.  It took some time -- during which both Paladin and Remiel must have suffered agonies of anticipation -- but at last the word was given.  It was to be Remiel who would pass into the Underworld that day.

As the headsman's axe did its work, the truth was revealed at last -- Remiel was no loyal Fan-Bearer, but a traitorous Soldier of the Moon.  The innocent could rest that much more easily in their beds tonight.

Imogen watched the results with grim satisfaction. "I find it highly ironic, that if he had not made a good argument, I would not have changed my vote and there wouldn't have been a tie. Paladin would have been executed instead. Remiel has been his own executionist. How just is the fist of Ra."

The courtiers slept a little better that night, thankful that the gods had led them to one of the rebels.  And the arrival of Ra's light the next morning brought further good news -- though there were signs that the Soldiers of the Moon had been on the prowl, none had died during the night!  The gods must have watched over them again, guiding the steps of the Royal Guard to the place where the danger lay, and keeping them all safe.  As the court gathered together, the loyal ones among them dared to hope that today might bring fresh good news.
