It was odd having Sheva back. Having a friend die, be farewelled, mourned, and accepted, then have her returned, not exactly well, but alive. He had been so preoccupied with the Count in the Cabin, he had not even noticed her presence till he had walked out, bloody, dazed and disturbed. He had tortured many men before, he had heard many scream, but the focus of a mad man is a hard thing to comprehend. The Count had never looked at him. His blade had carved and sliced and flayed, the burning hot poker he had taken from the fire had seared and scorched, the back of his blade had beaten and broken, but not once had the man looked at him. Only ever watching Robb, the man who was allowing such an atrocity to occur. It had been many years since Da'Karro had felt regret over the torture of a guilty man but something about that night had been wrong. He should have told Robb to leave, he shouldn't have let the man stay as long as he did. Watching, allowing, someone to be tortured before you was something that changed you inside. Da'Karro had become so desensitised to the depravity that it no longer affected him, but He worried for Robb. The man grew darker in the soul by the day, falling further and further to where the beasts lay in the hearts of men. Da'Karros beast was already free, lurking behind his eyes. If he could save Robb from a similar fate, perhaps it was one way he could redeem himself to Ishka. He sat beside Clara at the feast organised by the Khalidoran princeling, but he found it hard to eat. The food reminded him of the scraps he used to live on during his time as a slave, and he tried his hardest not to smell the spices that pervaded the air. He watched Robb sit with Jon, they talked and laughed between Jons talks with The Khalidoran prince and The White haired Queen. It suddenly occurred to him how little he knew about his new found compatriots. He had never really had friends before, he wasn't sure what the term meant. Were he and Casey friends? Was the Captain? Jon? He honestly didn't know. What was the difference between a comrade, an ally, and a friend?
"Scarlet," he said, leaning over to his love and holding her hand, "What is a friend? I mean, what makes someone a friend? what does it mean?"
