Jagraton had made himself quite unpopular with us from the beginning. He did not improve much until he actually needed help.
Incidentally, I should take some of the blame for Phaniet’s behavior. After a very small dose of Jagraton, I had taken to treating him as arrogantly and dismissively as I could manage. Usually this seemed quite appropriate — as when, say, he was demanding this or that special treatment or defense for Prince Rastomil, especially one which the prince did not much want. My loyal and/or obnoxious clients Phaniet and Grinwipey were more than happy to follow my example.
Usually, as I say, this was quite appropriate. In this instance, more concern for Prince Rastomil would not have gone amiss.
