Tiel Backstory (1454 words)
One of her teachers had the experience and insight to recognize Tiel's mistake and arranged for Tiel to have an encounter with a friend of his, Silvina, a priestess from the temple.
Tiel was prone to saying (at least until it got her in trouble) that if it came down to Emperor Norsak and his mighty Exemplar minons verses Lady Silvina, she was sure that Silvina would take care of the whole mess without mussing a feather.
A week before she received the request, Tiel woke to the shock that the tips of her crest were red and her first primary had four red marks like four drops of blood.
