I am writing to discuss a very troubling matter, one that is up the utmost importance to our House and family.

            It seems that our brother, Aerlin, has acquired some very interesting notes.  He was able to gather a tome of research from none other than Mayong himself, which seemed to detail Mayong’s encounter with Tserrina, and notes he took on his attempted, and failed, turning of her.  Aerlin then managed to acquire Tserrina’s notes on her own experiments of immortality from the library of Neriak.

            His work seemed to point toward something he called the “strengthening of the blood”, a mixing of the research of Mayong and Tserrina.  According to my informant, these experiments were largely unsuccessful, although their processes were well thought out.  They attempted to turn all manner of races, from the brutish ogres, to the hideous iksar, to the insignificant gnomes.  It seems that of all the races, the only ones they were able to have any measure of success with were those of human and elven stock – any others simply died in writhing agony.

            Although it appears they have not yet achieved their goal, they met a measure of success with a human male they refer to as “Sarkon”.  While he was not what they were hoping for initially, he did survive his experiments and was able to evidently provide them with a wealth of information.  Evidently, they found all they needed to know, and were planning to destroy him.  That was, until they entered his chamber to find him missing.  Sarkon had escaped.

            The troubling piece of information here, is that Sarkon escaped during the daylight.  I’ll repeat that: Sarkon fled his confinement during full sunlight.  While the fools are scrambling to discern how this was possible, the implications of what happened are not to be understated.  It appears that Sarkon can walk into the daylight, since no charred remains were found.  Whether he had assistance with this act is irrelevant.  Sarkon, while D’Ryil, is not subservient to the House as he should be, and could prove to be dangerous to all of the D’Ryil as a whole.  He must be found, and ultimately, destroyed.

            In the meantime, we must find Aerlin and his laboratory.  My informant is not aware of the location of the experiments, but I believe it is of paramount importance to find a way to put a stop to their research before they endanger us any further.  We must convene, and contemplate what our next move will be.  I will contact you when it is time.

Farewell for now.
