Janus takes leave with Lord Grimsby on his evening “patrol” while Stolas cleans up after their lesson. What exactly caught his eye?

World Building
There are ancient, noble households scattered throughout Mercia-twelve of them if we are being precise. Ajax makes mention of them in a later chapter. Each house has a coat of arms associated with the zodiac. Hence, Grimsby belongs to the House of the Blessed Virgin. Some of his ceremonial robes in later chapters reflect his ties to Virgo as well. The surrounding county is known for agriculture. It is peaceful and rural. Sadly, this hasn’t gained the household much of a foothold amongst the peerage, and their status has slipped over the years. However, within the last few decades, Lord Paix, Eliza’s father, is responsible for the development of Portseve into a bustling port town.
