  • The Arrest of Nuri

    Second day of the First Moon,
    Nineteenth Year of Recent Awakenings

    In accordance with the will of Her Majesty and in upholding the duties charged to me as a Junior Chronicler, I hereby submit the account of The Arrest of Nuri.

    The cross-bow wielding criminal known as Nuri was arrested on the Middle Landing by Lieutenant Adahn and Dame Galatea, after shooting sera Meryl in the chest with a shadow bolt.

    On the Twenty-Ninth day of the Twelfth moon, Nuri entered the landing from the western stairs leading to the Outer Bailey, whilst a small gathering of denizens, including Dame Hannah and Lieutenant Adahn, were enjoying music and company. All those present immediately stopped what they were doing, and turned their attention to her. Nuri silently walked to the Yule box, unspeaking, although she was eating a snow pudding. The air was tense, as no one was sure exactly what she was doing. Casually grabbing a Yule sock, she proceeded to take a scarf from it and wrap it around her neck. As she was doing this, Lieutenant Adahn calmly asked her to come with him so that she could be taken into custody, and placed in the cells with Carla and Ariel, who were arrested earlier in the moon. She refused, and continued munching on her snow pudding. She seemed unconcerned with the Lieutenant's requests, continuing to rifle through her sock, to the confusion of those present. She slowly placed various things on the middle benches, including truffles and a stuffed toy.

    After several moments of meaningless banter, with Nuri deflecting Lieutenant Adahn's words, he finally told her to hand over her weapon, and things would be settled without fighting or violence. She refused, attempting to convince him to walk with her while she was still armed, claiming that she would not use her bow. At that exact time, contrary to her words, she began to aim at sera Meryl, who had used a spell of compulsion to attempt to get the criminal to hand over her weapon. Mere seconds after the bolt was shot, Nuri was pinned to the ground by Lieutenant Adahn, and arrested promptly. Sera Meryl was taken to the Infirmary, and her injury treated.

    The entire encounter lasted mere moments, with Dame Galatea arriving as Nuri was being arrested. Her arrival was prompted by Lieutenant Adahn blowing his duckcall, seconds before Nuri shot her crossbow. She was then escorted to the cells, where she awaits trial with Carla and Ariel.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask all readers please indicate to me though discretion any falsehoods I may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, The Office of the Chronicler, and the Denizenry of Her Majesty's Realm,
