The End of an Age
Derric is a mysterious messenger who appears to work for Pavel, but also for the Senators, whomever they may be. He has delivered messages between Pavel and the Red Stripe, as well as aided Robert when he needed to escape the castle.
Recently, he stated his mistrust of Pavel to Robert. He says the Senators are trustworthy, but Pavel’s apparent allience with the “Rich Men” leads them to suspect his motives. The Senators trust Pavel, but now they are wary.
