Aldrin blink at Daston's greeting, and then replies, in a somewhat rude tone, " 'The Evil of Gaedren Lamm?' What are you, a paladin or something?" He tries to brush off some of the dirt that has accumulated on his old clothes, and then continues, "If I knew there would be so many people, I would have worn something nicer. Oh, but we're giving out our names are we? I am Aldrin. I follow no one."
The young mage puts away his dagger, and relaxes a bit. If this were an ambush, he would already be dead. He flashes a smile to Kalinda and adds, "Patience is a virtue, you know."
