The enemy's siegecraft had demolished the citadel gates and the roads were overrun with hostile soldiers. As the various army divisions were separated, they could only depend on messengers such as Ebelle to relay orders and reports. As she ran carrying a particularly valuable missive, a roaming unit blocked her path. Time was of the essence, so rather than find a detour, she smartly scaled the wall and leapt to the other side in a superb display, far beyond their reach. After giving a brief sidelong glance at the shocked troops, she continued towards the military headquarters. Her beloved home's fate was in her hands.
