|Admiral Melandrach Olithir|
The Admiral studied his figures again worried that he was correct. Either there was an unaccounted for error in his accounting or one of his officers was embezzling, a thought that troubled the naval commander greatly. The Admiral realized he must tread carefully in revealing or accusing treason. Crimes punishable by death are worthy of murder and the Admiral was not anxious to become one of Inasia's many victims. The Admiral needed some help from outside his hierarchy but one that would not raise any suspicions. The Master of Cannons decided upon a shrewd and careful course of action, unaware that his fears were well founded and a contract on his life had indeed been claimed by Inasia.
