With the Lenfald-Loreos war over, Hawk found it upon himself to reestablish communications with his informants in both Lenfald and garhiem. His informants had ceased communication altogether, for fear of being labelled as spies, and swiftly executed.
Hawk had wandered into the patch of forest that served as a neutral meeting place for him and his lenfald informant, a minor noble by the name of David Valkokien. To his relief, he found David waiting for him, cautiously perched by a tree, as to not garner the attention of the carnivorous, flesh-eating ants that made their home in the patch of the forest.
After exchanging pleasantries, the two where rudely interrupted by a pack of bandits; With the war over, the chaos and confusion that had been brought about by the march of Loreesi troops had died down, and the bandits had been driven off to this decrepit, dangerous part of the forest. Without so much as a twitch of fear, both Hawk and David drew their arms, and made swift work of the bandit scum.
