    Summary

    Deirta Thelyss may not have been of den Kryn, but she was about as close as one could get without climbing back into the Luxon and trying again. She had been consecuted eight hundred years ago, and was nearly as old as Leylas herself, or so they say. The Light had shone upon her and granted her, finally, two children - her golden boy, Verin, and her silver moon child, Essek. Both she loved, in her own way - though, Essek mused as he traced the gilded lettering of his dinner invitation, it was a peculiar sort of love. He couldn’t help feeling there was something missing in the flinch behind his mother’s eyes when she looked at him, how she rose to the occasion in public but did everything she could to pretend he was a ghost behind closed doors.

    The invitation was gilded in gold. I understand the hint, Mother.

    Summary

    When they take the first finger, Essek feels relief.

    There are a multitude of reasons, the first being that they, in some form of providence, selected his right pinky for amputation. His least used finger on his non-dominant hand, not crucial in any somatics, markedly his least beloved bundle of phalanges. He thinks, deliriously happy, riding the high of blood loss, 'I am still useful'.

    Summary

    Essek is shaking once he’s sat there for twenty minutes. He’s thirsty. He wants to walk over to the jug of cold water on the table by the door. He needs to get up. He can’t.
    He won't cry. It’s stupid to cry over this. 
    Verin gurgles.
    “I hate you.” Essek curls his fingers around his elbows. “I hate you. I hate you.”

    For as long as Essek can remember, he has been cursed to obey. He has managed, in his own way, to mitigate the consequences of the curse while pursuing his academic and personal desires. It is only after being commanded to act as a guide for the Mighty Nein that it becomes a true complication.

    Summary

    Essek moves out of Rosohna and now lives in Zadash in a cramped, three-bedroom apartment with too many people, Caleb, Veth, and Molly. Just below them is a coffee shop called Flower n’ Beans, run by Yasha. Essek left Roshohna to find freedom, a job he loves, and to be left alone, but the Mighty Nien makes nothing easy and soon he gets too attached to his tiny apartment and Cafe below them. Are the Mighty Nien holding him back from true freedom and his dreams, or are they, for the first time showing Essek what life is about?

    Summary

    After the trial of Trent Ikithon, Caleb is ambushed and tries to hide in Eiselcross. However, he misses his mark, and needs Essek's help to find the outpost before he either bleeds out or freezes to death.

    From this prompt: "Caleb teleports to Essek in Eiselcross in a last ditch effort to get away from danger, but misses. He sends to Essek to warn him, and Essek has to repeatedly send to a freezing and disoriented Caleb trying to get him to take off his anti-scry necklace so he can find him to teleport to him."

    Summary

    Caleb’s gaze roams, his eyes narrowing in a manner Essek can only deem analytic.

    Summary

    Essek is far from the only one capable of serving as a knowledgeable sounding board, and he is well aware that Caleb has a clever, crafty mind all on his own. And still, beyond that, if he dares to consider, Essek could even share the spell itself from his very own spellbook.

    This is not what Caleb has asked of him.

    This is a puzzle.

    Best Essek begin solving it.
