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.

Read the full prologue!

Knowing Colette would be watching the main gates of Keep Hasting, Caden entered the Hasting grounds through the back entrance the servants used to accept deliveries. Thankfully, the guard on duty was one of his, so he left the two horses and Dennison in his care with strict instructions to discretely stable the horses and see to Dennison's injuries.

Already planning his next move, though he wanted nothing more than to collapse in his bed, Caden snuck over to the barracks where he met another of his supporters. With a Hasting uniform hiding his ballroom dress, which was already less distinctive without the coat he had left with Eliza, and a hat low on his brow, Caden managed to make it up to his chambers without being recognized.

Part of Caden wanted to confront Colette immediately and get things over with, but he knew he would feel more confident facing her if he was comfortable and together. He swapped his clothing for something fresh form his armoir--just day clothing which he could dress himself in--ran a comb and some water through his hair, and added a little cologne to hide the scent of the horses. It was impossible to completely control the situation when Colette was involved, so it felt good to control the little things he could.

While he would have preferred to have a servant help him dress so he could be perfectly made up in ballroom attire when facing Colette, Caden knew he didn't have not much time to spare if he wanted to surprise Colette. Indeed, by not going straight to her, he had already risked her finding out about his return.

Caden gently coaxed one last stray hair into place, and selected one of his finest, and sturdiest, dueling canes. He was ready. All right, let's do this.

Exiting his chambers, Caden strode forcefully down the hall. At the late hour, the halls were relatively unoccupied, though he did encounter several servants and guards. If any were Collette's spies, to their credit, they did not show any surprise at seeing Caden.

A guard, one of Collette's stood at attention at the end of one of the indoor walkways connecting the main keep to the outer towers. Beyond, Caden could see Colette wrapped in a shawl, gazing out the walkway's window towards the main gate.

Caden noticed a slight widening of the guard's eyes as he approached. "Lord Caden!" the guard spoke loudly, no doubt intending to alert his mistress. "I believe Lady Colette would prefer some solitude at the moment. I can ask her secretary to book you an appointment in the morn . . . urgh." The guard cut off as Caden rammed his duelling cane forcefully into his stomach. With another careful swipe, Caden swept the guard's legs out from under him, dropping him to the floor, and joined his cousin on the walkway.

"Good evening, cousin."

Nadia jumped at the sound of the voice, spoiling the charcoal sketch she had been working on. She turned, and her eyes widened upon seeing a rather disheveled Eliza climbing over the railing, skirts and all.

Nadia ran to Eliza and, hesitantly at first, wrapped her friend in a tight hug. "Are you okay? What happened?" As they separated, Nadia's eyes narrowed. In the candle light, she could see that the coat Eliza had wrapped around her shoulders belonged to Caden Hasting.

"Did he hurt you? Where is he? I swear, if he hurt you I will kill that bloody bastard..."

I left a comment for you on discord about the number of children. Basically, "three or less" is kind of the regular size of a noble family, so I would prefer to keep the number of families with more than three children low. That being said, we don't have many at the moment, so if it is important that Victor have four children, then that is totally fine. I just wanted to check and see if three would work.

Anyways, regardless of whether or not you change the number of children, he's Approved. Congrats!
