    The latest news to reach Lord Sparrow was even more unsettling, it would seem that Skaros, on behalf of the King appeared to be recruiting the Raven King to assassinate some of those deemed responsible for the slaying of Bladderstick. The justification being that they had done so.

    Now let us be clear on this, the act of murder is defined as the PREMEDITATED unlawful killing of one person by another. The slaying of Bladderstick was in no way premeditated (unless the crowd allowed access to him and no guards set deliberately), but surely this is a step too far in reasoning. Thus none there could be deemed guilty of murder but manslaughter at best.

    The King in his obsession with Justice is in serious danger of causing a greater injustice. If the above is true, Skaros, on the King's behalf, is soliciting assassination (MURDER) to ease the kings conscience. However two wrongs will never make one right. Skaros as instigator will himself be guilty of murder, will the King pursue his execution with as much vigour as he pursues the members of the mob?. Members of the mob incorrectly accused of murder are entitled to a proper trial (not one like the travesty that was Bladdersticks). True justice demands nothing less. Before long, because of his pursuit of the unpursuable, our King may find himself with blood on his own hands
