Still, it would have perhaps been more interesting if, somewhere along the line, someone mentioned that, yeah, basically all the nobles know that Pendleton and Havelock have some ace-in-the-hole super assassin they’ve been using to cause mayhem and further their agenda. But at this point, nobody’s going to dare call them on it for fear of starting a civil war, what with all the power the two have accrued.
