Death to a Poisoner, Rise of a Hero
"Gaius I need 5 of your men to work under my permanent employ. In return I will point you in the direction of the information you seek"

"Give me the information I need and you will get your wish Vladimer."

"We have no deal until they are under my employ and I am assured it will stay that way"

"No man can order me poisoner!" Gaius backs up to the door of the shop. He cracks it open and yells "Guards help!"

Vladimer confused "What is the meaning of this?"

Gaius approaches Vladimer and pulls Orphan "I have found a Scorpion murdered". Orphan rushes foward and plunges into Vladimer's chest. Vladimer gasps "What" and blood gushes from his mouth. The blade rips out and Gaius whispers "Amon Forgives You". Orphan glides through the air and quickly decapitates its target.

"Thank you Atticus for showing me the light... I WILL be this city's HERO!"

Teaching the Uninspired
"Why Gaius are you paying the Dwarves and commoners to fix the streets? Gold has far better uses than wasting it on rabble!"

"We live with the rabble my friend. I am no a bottomfeeder, I'm here to make this city mine. The more trust we own the more people see us as their saviors. With trust comes Power & Coin. Our vision must pierce the future to be successful...

Now what have you learned of the Witch?"

Preparing for the future
Atticus found himself walking the grounds of his Church a week before it opened. slowly working through his thoughts as he strolled past small plots of flowers.

"I knew it would not be easy, Amon. But now, I feel as though I am coming closer to truly seeing your Will... And I fear it may be more than we are prepared for."

He says aloud as he thinks about how far his team has come in such short time. A small hawk flies overhead and screeches as the wind stops moving. Atticus smiles up at the sky.

"Yes my Lord. We will succeed."

An excerpt of a sermon in the park.
Amon blessed the Crow with flight so the world could not prey on him. When the Fox saw this he was hurt until Amon said to him: "you are blessed with my greatest gift, the gift of intelligence."

A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree. "That's for me, as I am a Fox," and he walked up to the foot of the tree. "Good-day, Mistress Crow," he cried. "How well you are looking to-day: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds." The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the
piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by Master Fox. "That will do," said he. "That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future.

Stroll through the streets
After returning from the mine Atticus felt a calling to walk the streets of Markarth. The warm sun kissed his face as he moved through the markets. Smells of fresh meats and spices filled his nose as he made his way. An old woman offered him a fresh bun and gave an akward salute of Amon. Atticus smiled and returned the motion. At the end of the markets he turned north and moved into the park. Laughter of children mixed with barks of dogs and the cheering of men playing games of chance. A song bird flew overhead and Atticus took it as a sign to change course. To the north west he climbed the city streets until he came to a low rise where he could see the whole city.

Beautiful, he thought as he surveyed the town below. Across, on the eastern horizon it looked as though a new sun was rising. Deep red and black tendrils crested the hills and began snaking towards the happy citizens. Atticus screamed out as the colors blotted out the sun and loomed overhead. He fell to his knees as the wave of darkness plummeted down. Right before everything was swallowed up a blinding light enveloped him. Atticus felt the coursing power of the True God inside himself. Figures of White clad in blue and gold flew out in all directions slashing and hacking at the darkness. Atticus looked down and the ground spun violently.

He awoke as the carriage came to a stop at the outer gates of Markarth. Atticus looked up at Gaius and Telcor. "I have communed with Amon." "We must protect these people."
