Herald Vanyel Ashkevron, Demonsbane, Hero of Stony Tor, is hiding from his mother.
Everyone avoids the family chapel since the, er, incident with the priest. Father’s never been very pious anyway. Mother is superstitious, and her son having nearly been murdered on the threshold is a particularly blatant omen. Vanyel doesn’t mind, he gets nearly-murdered constantly, but it's the last place anyone will look for him. He can make it across the courtyard without anyone seeing him and shut the door firmly behind him, leaning against it to catch his breath.
It’s a while before he opens his eyes and notices, with a bolt of alarm, that 1) he can no longer sense Yfandes at all, and 2) this is most definitely not the interior of his parents’ chapel, unless they’ve done some major renovations since his last visit.
