Menolia nodded at Alden's words before asking a group of nobles to watch for his troops. "Er, well, Rasa had some pretty interesting lessons too. I was taught of how blood carries certain traits and how the mixing of blood can provide strange effects in battle. And how powdered bones can be used for... certain things." she tried to let slip the secrets Rasa had given her "She was about to teach me... well- for a worst case scenario she was going to teach me how to do a lobotomy. I'm frankly glad I had to leave before she got to. She was very strict and would push me until I fainted most of the time... Laps around the entire perimeter of Erebus, rushing all of my blood to one place for minutes- things like that were commonplace." She could remember even now her days in Erebus. The house she shared had been quite small, Rasa insisting it was perfect, and half the time they couldn't walk without bumping into each other- but she had always felt safe in those wooden walls. No matter how many times Rasa would torture her, whether with blades or powers, her mentor would always be there at the end of the day- silently patching her up and handing her some rations "I think of all the things possible though- lobotomy's were the one thing she never wanted me to learn. She seemed very cold and cruel, but there was a strange sense of warmth in all her words."
