Elezibethele is more of an unholy woman than a holy woman anyway. Elezibethele also calls for an aranea guard to lead Brand to the kitchen.
Also, Elezibethele lies- her usual mount was loot from a random encounter. It involved an owl going to the toilet down her cleavage.
He'll return the whip to it's place on the wall before elaborating. "Were you an assasain, then you would have already lost your best opportunity to kill me. The dog was down, the halfling is no use in a fight. Now he's back on his feet."
He puts on a grimacing face. "But nasty hypotheticals are of no use to either of us, my lady. May we away to someplace we may discuss the contracts I will bring to my father."
