The welcoming party: includes what looks to be a retainer, or perhaps manservant, and a couple knights that greet Haurchefant like he's their own. He similarly remembers them by name (Abront and Edrene) and returns the greeting. Clearly the manservant means to usher them off to the noble's quarter and past all of the dirty, glaring commoners, but Haurchefant deftly avoids this trap, too.
"Veyeux, Could you escort Mistress Taru," he motions to Tataru, "to the Jeweled Crozier and make the necessary introductions to the local merchants before taking her up to meet Father? She is the Scion's coinkeeper, and I expect having a lay of the land would be quite helpful."
"Oh? Yes, of course," says the manservant, bowing slightly.
"Edrene, your uncle is a chirurgeon tending to the injured, is he not?" continues Haurchefant. "Perhaps we could go and see him posthaste, it'd be remiss of us to let our countrymen suffer any longer than they already have. Where does he work?"
"Oh, ah, it's not far from here," says the knight, blinking with surprise, before a coy smile dances on her lips. "I'm sure he'd be happy to accept help."
And so the party is split in two: Tataru with the manservant and one of the knights to go handle introductions and niceties, and the other knight with Haurchefant and Otohiko to go running off to help the injured. Haurchefant gives Alphinaud an out if he wants it, saying something about how he's likely to put many people at ease with how at home he looks in Ishgard (read: how he is elezen and of high birth) but doesn't perform any social maneuvering to pressure him either way.
