[A letter has been pinned to various notice boards within the city, seemingly in haste as to gather and bring notice before other parties may act] I am writing this testimony to reveal the truth to the Regalian people regarding the misconduct and legal violations of House Delmotte, and House von Schwarzkrau regarding Saturday the 13th’s Inquest into House Castley. On the 11th of November, in the Eronidas District, I met with Duke Delmotte and Archduke von Schwarzkrau, both being armed, with Archduke von Schwarzkrau in his Viridian armor. With them was a woman named Anneke, who was armored in blacksteel plate. The situation was already intimidating. The two used harsh language and threats, Duke Delmotte stating he’d have me lashed and imprisoned in Krakenburg for refusing to comply with their demands. Understanding I held rank within the Castlian Guard, they wanted to extract any kind of dirt they could on House Castley to further their personal feud with my liege. They both claimed to have State authority behind them in their actions, hence the utilization of Krakenburg, the State’s prison for traitors if I did not obey them. Given the nature of these threats, I was coerced into testifying against House Castley at the Inquest, using a story crafted by the Duke Delmotte to claim my liege was working for the Solifuge to overthrow the Empire, something he’d never do, being a longtime veteran of the Marshalry Cabinet and a dedicated servant of the State. Furthermore, what I didn’t say at the Inquest, they recorded for a future lawsuit against House Castley. In fear of the power I originally thought they wielded in representing the Regalian State, I fed them speculated rumors regarding House Castley’s recruitment policies. They asked me to confirm if it were true that House Castley recruited sanguine and criminals into their ranks, and signed on my name to prove such. Having served in the Castlian Guard for a durable time, I can confirm with confidence House Castley puts their recruits through background checks to confirm they are not recruiting malicious or illegal individuals. House Castley has never in its history employed a sanguine, with only one case arising in the past with one Alexa Haaven who was infected during the time of House Kreiburg. Upon this circumstance, the Grand Duke had her fired and reported to Greygate. They also tried framing House Castley for trying to violate the Iron Peace, which is also mere speculation. And I can confirm as a member of House Castley’s war cabinet, there is no truth to this heinous accusation. Merely a means for these houses to chew at Castley’s military strength. Understanding that these Houses lied about their position with the State, threatened my life and my career, I come forth admitting to having wrongfully committed perjury, yet plead to be redeemed by the gracious Grand Duke of Oxenfurd now that the truth has been cemented.
