OOC: Keeping all stories relating to the illness of our little Darlina here so they are easier to find for future reference. Please include all letters, journal entries, etc. here. I am adding an initial synopsis for background. ~~~~~~~~~~~ * ~~~~~~~~~~~ Darlina Kingston, 6, had been delivered to the Umbra Orphanage a year and a half ago after her mother died from a rare cancer. Her father had been part of the RBG of Umbra and died in the line of fire when she was just 8 months old at the hand of Ix Tab. No other known relatives have ever been located. Her mother and father were both born in the city of Trinsic, having moved to Umbra for his employment with the Guard. Three days ago the child appeared to have caught a cold and was sniffling. One of the nannies at the orphanage noticed that she had what appeared to be a small bite on her left forearm. She treated the bite, which did not seem to be of great concern and began to treat the child for the common cold. Her symptoms quickly worsen. She exhibited a high fever, sweats followed by shivers, general malaise, and what seemed to be delusions. The nannies moved the child to the Umbra Bloodletters and notified the Romanus family. The close ties of the child with the RBG of Umbra, had a few of the guards of that regiment interested in assisting and helping in the child's recovery efforts. After their regular shifts, they decided to visit the area of Trinsic to see if anyone knew of the Kingston family and once again attempt to find some relatives for the child. If there was a need for a blood transfusion, it would be best if it was family. Having found no one that even knew the family, they stopped over at the Galehaven Tavern in Olympus for a drink. Capt. Kalmar Erikkson, Lt. Barnaby Baggins, and Sgt. August Rush spoke with fellow RBG'ers from the Skara Brae unit in regards to the going on's of this particular case. At which point, some of the skilled healers of that regiment questioned the methodologies of the Umbra Bloodletters. Dr. Gillian Wilkins Gryphon offered her assistance to review the child's illness. Sgt. August Rush went to notify Lady Pandora de Romanus that there had been questions as to the methods of the healers in Umbra and that Dr. Wilkins Gryphon was on her way to visit the child. Capt. Kalmar Erikkson awaited his fellow RBG'ers at the Bloodletters.
