10 Justinian, 9:41

As of late the Magisterium had been growing agitated. Its attention had been cast to several points of the map, the most noticeable being to Nevarra. On one hand, this was a good thing. As long as the Magisterium was distracted, Radonis would be able to extend his reach to more important matters, such as the Venatori. After all, the cult appeared to be growing more active as of late, attempting to create trouble that lasted beyond the South. On the other hand, the Magisterium was also quite good at creating trouble itself and their discussions in regards to King Markus were proof of this. In the name of traditionalism they seemed to be adamant on creating another war.

How...distasteful. The Imperial Archon found himself tempted to intervene, but he was no fool. As much as people enjoyed the thought that the position of Archon came with unlimited power, this was far from the truth. It was a position that required a steady hand a mind that was good with politics. After all, there was the unspoken word of the public that kept the Archon in check. If one wished to be Archon, then they best consider how much they enjoyed living.

At the same time, he best consider all options before he actually used the power he possessed. Swaying the Magisterium to fix the mess was always another option. If he could not do that, then he could always allow an outside power to do so.

He did detest how much his schedule seemed to be filled with meetings with Magisters over decisions that, in his own mind, seemed to have easy answers. After all, not going to war when you were already in one seemed logical enough. Perhaps he just needed a different point of view.

Thankfully, he was going to gain just that today.

His appointment with Magister Vadior was coming close. Quietly, Radonis allowed the servants to set the room, drinks and food being set as the Archon indulged himself in a book.

Vadior was dressed in robes soft as silk yet heavy as cotton, each layer darker than the one before it, so that it carried a velveteen sheen. The sleeves and shirt collar were adorned with golden embroidery. Patterns, so dark and subtle as to be missed, spanned the back of the robe from duster to shoulder, every stitch of it centering around the image of a rearing horse. One didn’t show up wearing anything but the best for an audience with the archon, after all. He had left his staff with his entourage, who would be waiting for him outside the door when he left.

He was directed to Radonis’ room by his servants, who was indulging himself in a book. He glanced at it, but couldn’t make out its title from this distance. “Have I come at a bad time?” he said, knowing that their meeting was pre-ordained; the closest thing Vadior could come to a joke.

The light filtered inside the office. It would reach midday soon, the sun nearly at its apex, signaling that he was right on time. This would be the first time he had been invited into the archon’s own home. Previously they had only met during meetings at the Imperial Senate, where he was just one voice among many. The Venatori had been a hot topic for the Senate for weeks now, and indeed, he had been informed on what this meeting was about. He liked to think that Radonis would not have called him here if he didn’t agree on the issue. He had been quite vocal about it, after all.

Vadior dipped his head in a slight show of respect. “What can I offer you, Archon?”

It did not take long for Magister Vadior to arrive. The sound of the door bespoke of his arrival, and as the Magister spoke Radonis glanced up. A quiet, sharp smile crossed the Archon's face and he shut the book close before placing it to the side. "Not at all," he replied honestly. The question was clearly not entirely serious, but then Vadior had never been the best at humour.

It was not something that the Archon entirely minded. After all, most within the Magisterium held rather poor senses of humour, either being too grim or petty. If he had held such a care chances were that he would have grown tired of the company that he was forced to keep far sooner than he had.

He waited just a moment, expecting the Magister to sit. After all, this was hardly a meeting that was meant to be along the lines of punishing. No, such meetings usually never happened with Radonis, if only because those he wanted dead normally ended up dead by a hand that was not his own- unless, of course, one was a fool. As Vadior failed to sit, he finally gestured to the seat across from him. "Sit, Vadior. I do detest having conversations that reek of force formality." He allowed a quiet smile, the expression far too sharp to truly look kind, to cross his face before he took a sip of his drink. He began to set it down. "Particularly when I am searching for opinions that may be different from my own."
