Operation text Edit
A note from Josephine:
An interesting development. We received a visit from a cloaked woman, who was revealed to be Lady Colombe, one of Empress Celene's trusted attendants. The empress knows that Michel has joined the Inquisition, and sent Colombe seeking a secret reconciliation.
This subterfuge is necessary, of course, to protect Celene's reputation. An empress's mind cannot be seen to be easily swayed by something as inconsequential as friendship.
Advisor suggestions Edit
Not participating in this mission.
Very heartwarming, but Celene could have found Michel before now if she had a mind to reconcile. No, she is playing at something more, and we will not be drawn into her game. Test her resolve. If she wants a reconciliation, let her make it public.
Good. Friends are few and far between these days. I'm glad to see the empress come to her senses. I will inform Michel immediately.
No word? So much for a sincere desire for reconciliation. Michel was victim to Orlais' protocols once. Let him never find out that an empress's friendship is conditional and only at her convenience. He deserves more than forgiveness behind closed doors.
Celene will conduct her business with Michel through Colombe, who will act as a go-between. I've informed the guards that she is an expected guest. Michel's mood, predictably, has improved. A happy ending, for once.
