The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

#2973264 Meetings with Meaning

It was difficult for Delve to not openly scoff at these talks of equality. Equality was the dream of idiots and fools. However, when Daphne talked it was hard to not pay attention, even if she herself did not entirely agree. What was skaa culture? All Delve knew was fear and oppression, and looking around this room, she felt no different. Perhaps under all the death there was some form of culture, but it was not something that Delve had ever known or hoped for. She decided that she didn't like thinking about it. It was too hopeful and all she needed to know was how to survive. She didn't want to be in this situation where she would be called upon to do anything noticeable, and she didn't want anyone to try to make her hope for a better future.

To distract herself, she shifted her attention to Wilor, attempting to not let herself get caught up in Daphne's optimism. He seemed almost as uncomfortable as she was to be around so many people. He seemed to be constantly scanning the room, as if anyone here had the presence of mind to attack him. His ticks, the constant tapping and checking his knives, was distracting to the point of almost irritating. She wondered how someone who lived in such comfort had developed so many defensive habits. She supposed it was related to the noble in-fighting, although she was surprised that he did not have a bodyguard of some sort.

Time to find a way out of this situation. She was not so dedicated to this character that she had created that she was willing to risk her own safety to help. At least, that was what she was going to keep telling herself. This had made her almost want to have the same sense of goodness and purpose that the others had, and that was dangerous. At least Daphne seemed more interested in recruiting Wilor than she was in Delve.

"I've done what I said I'd do, then." Delve almost forgot to continue the mannerisms she'd been adopting, another sign that it was time for her to find a different part of the city to reside in and get away from these people. Delve gave Wilor a half-smile, trying to make this look like Devin was reluctant to leave, before addressing Daphne. "I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, miss. Everything you're talking about sounds great, but I guess I'm still too focused on survival than preserving life and culture. Besides, I doubt I could be much help."
