    From EM Quantum:

    Once again troubling rumors have drawn me to the quarters of Lord Casca. Unlike last time where I was met with a troubled soul this time things were much different, I found Lord Casca laughing manically with a dark glint in his eye. I asked him what had happened, and was met with the following reply.
    Squeak! Rats indeed, but I showed them, I’m no puppet, nor will I have that sword hanging over my head any longer. I’ll crush any who stand against me just like I gutted the poor hut the Glorious “Lady” Dawn lived in. Oh you should have seen the hovel the “savior” of Britannia lived in, lived like a farm wife yet had the audacity to inquire into how I run the Kingdom. No longer will I be viewed with suspicion or hatred, from now on I’ll be mentioned with fear!
    Hearing this I set about inquiring about both Lady Dawn and finding out more information about what happened today when Lord Casca addressed the public, and was able to find this information. Lord Casca’s address was recorded as follows.
    Citizen’s, Peer’s, Betrayer’s.
    Long enough have you called for my blood,
    long enough have I listened to your plaintive crys,
    and closeted talk of rebellion and treason,
    through rumor.
    Know this, my patience has grown thin,
    my leniency has ended.
    A Tyrant, you name me, and invision me,
    and a King must live up to the vision
    of the people he serves.
    Already one you once called Hero
    has been oust and delt with,
    removed from her plots and schemes.
    Pray you do not follow in her footsteps.
    One Rat left unchecked in the Grainary
    may not seem an issue,
    but they will soon multiply.
    The same can be held true of Rebels,
    and traitors, so before I leave,
    I must make one request.
    After this address Shadowlords and their Minions appeared on the scene. This in an of itself is troubling indeed.​
    As for Lady Dawn, the only thing I could find concerning her, was the following image drawn and painted by a woodsman named Fayaxion who came too late to save the burning home.

    I quickly came to the now damaged home, and found no sign of a body, so it is safe to assume that Lady Dawn is quite possibly alive, and it seems currently gone into hiding.​
