Gaerlan and Irulen are not idle during the transit to Ghastenhall.

The Red, denied a steady supply of raw materials for her experiments of the flesh rededicates herself to her arcane endeavors, particularly in the crafting of magic items. Agents of the Knot – and in particular Gaerlan’s agents – will be well equipped indeed for whatever they encounter when they reach their destination at the end of the Godscar river. Iron Circlets, having proven their worth, are in particular demand by the Blackguard. They are to become badges of office for trusted agents, Knots of the Knot’s own.

Gaerlan refines and eventually graduates his first two fists of worth of child killers in a dark, private, and blood-filled night in which each is brought to the brink of death, only to be restored by his unholy power. Already baptized into murder this ‘death’ and ‘resurrection is the final step of their indoctrination, building upon the foundation of brutality, deprivation, religion, and drug-induced haze. More than simply their master or commander, he is their dark father and their savior. Failing him is a fate worse than death – for they have already passed through death by his grace. In truth they are less prepared than he might wish, but it cannot be helped for this first generation: he has blooded them as best he can, the rest of the blood price required to gain the requisite experience will have to come in practice. He expects less than half will survive long enough to pass on their experiences to the next generation.

They are only one group he works to indoctrinate. He continues to amuse himself with Annabeth and her sisters. He continues to use the other women as leverage against the Paladin’s civility, and in her aggressively pushes his faith upon them, undercutting their faith at every turn. Those that waver, if any, find that life as a guest of the Knot is far more enjoyable than life as their prisoner.

Outside of work Gaerlan finds plenty of time for pleasure. He spends most evenings in the company of either Thea or Traya, as his mood dictates. More rarely he finds himself alone with Puella, and though the nature of those evenings is quite different, no amount of violence is able to completely silence whispers that result.
