The years that followed were tumultuous, but galvanizing. Under the leadership of Lord Caelin Taylor, Parliament passed sweeping constitutional reform that allowed mages to live as full citizens. It did not solve all their problems, and no piece of legislation can erase generations of hate. Still, that is not to say they didn't try, and though not as full or immediate as Caelin would have wished, perhaps, there were notable changes.

The new system eventually allowed for the establishing of a mages' guild, which built from the start strong relations with several other guilds, the alliance with the smiths in particular being of great import to both parties. An enchanted weapons industry became one of the most lucrative trades in the city, their primary buyers the always well-funded assassins. Little about my own people changed, in the end, but of course time marches on, and in the wake of my retirement I left my Guild to an old apprentice of mine. To my understanding, it runs smoothly even still, though whether he ever accepted the mantle I offered him was something I did not desire to know.

These days, both the apprentice doctor and the former circus performer live quiet, undisturbed lives wherever they might wish, and the latter still raises her younger half-sister. Of all of us, I think in the end it was they who found the most freedom, and perhaps they who deserved it the most.

Of my protegee the Queen, and I think it not too arrogant of me to call her so, there is much that can be said, but very little that needs to be, I think. The deaths of that day would always weigh heavy, as any crown should, but she grew to bear it as well as such things can be borne. The city changed, and I can say with certainty that though the road this far was fraught with difficulty, it has been one worth travelling. And as I take these few and very last steps, I can only be proud of what we have wrought.
