The Ballad of Adler Young, Canto 2.5
RE: The Ballad of Adler Young, Canto 2.5
Adler, think. Just how much are Scutis subjected to Thorwald's edict? Could Alice be lying about the ixie ambush?
Or, could the ambush have been real, but Alice mistaken about the deaths?
Could it really be a kidnapping instead?

Also notice the verbal slip. Could Scuti Preston really be Scuti Prime, the severed tail of Irenaeus himself?
After taking a good look at Scuti Preston, dismiss the idea, since, unless Irenaeus lost his tail as a child, he would have to be far shorter than his official depictions state in order for him to have a tail of that size. In fact, if Scuti Preston is Irenaeus's tail, and that his tail had not been disproportionately small, he could not possibly have been much taller than Burnside!

Duchess, do have an extra automaton. But be a very maintenance intensive model, with many of it's functions not functional due to overuse and a complete lack of any recent maintenance. In fact, be barely functional in it's current state. Do not be subject to the ban, since it's made to resemble some sort of a gryphon.

Duchess's son-nephews, return with the war-chest. Gear inside, appear to be child sized, too small for Adler to wear comfortably.
Edit: Gear, appear to be made specifically to make the wearer look taller, particularly with it's extra high helmet and ridiculously thick boot soles.
Duchess, tell Adler a shocking fact about his magnificent ancestor that never made it into official records (because he had a tendency to brutally "remove" anybody who would dare to bring it up).
