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.

Eliza smiled a relieved smile, feeling a tightness loosen from her shoulders that she hadn't realized was there, and pulled Nadia into a tight hug.

"Thank you. Thank you so much."

Now was no time to stand around, though, so she pulled away after a moment and began leading Nadia back towards the spot she'd come in through. "Oh, it was definitely Colette. She sent a Mistborn to kill Caden, and I was going to wind up as collateral damage. But it's fine; he's on our side now. Unfortunately for all of us, though, he didn't switch sides until after he knocked poor Dennison into next week. Honestly, though, I think Colette is losing her touch. Who in their right mind sends an assassin who can be won over with simple logic?"

Finally, they reached the place where Eliza had made it over the wall, and she scrambled atop it once again, paying only enough heed to the ash to make sure it didn't cause her to slip, and that it didn't smudge Caden's coat too much.

A moment later, she was landing lightly in the street. She could have spoken to Caden from atop the wall, but the sound would have carried too far. Best to climb all the way over, so they could speak more softly.

"Nadia's going to get us some fresh clothes and a carriage," she announced without any preface, "but we need to sneak you both in. Think we can get you and Dennison up there, or do we need to find a different way?"
