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.

Felix watched Eliza, concentrating on her movements while they practiced. He could see what was taught to her by Nat, because she would use his exact movements. Then he could tell some of what she had adapted herself. It was good that she was changing with the fight. That was important to prepare her for a real fight. He watched her calculate her moves, but the trouble was, because of her restricted movement in the dress, he could actually tell exactly where she was going to go next.

"Luthadel has some interesting fashions, do they not?" Felix said, deflecting one of her attacks, and coming around the other side. "Perhaps this is why they prefer to teach their women to play piano rather than with knives."

He waited a while longer before breaking off the fight and then had his cousin stop. "Unlce Nat is a large man. The way he fights is, out of necessity, different than the way you or I should," he said. "You are small and agile. You have started to use that to your advantage, but that dress is a little too restrictive. How high can you raise your arms?"

Felix slowly led her through some of the basic steps. He went through the first steps he learned. He led her through the steps making sure to keep his posture and watch her posture at the same time.

When he brought up Damien, Lucille sighed. Felix looked confused for a moment before shaking his head.

"Oh, I didn't ask you to dance so you would introduce me to Damien. I asked you to dance because you were alone and I wanted to dance. It's also a good excuse to talk to you, so I can invite you to an event I'm organizing," He paused, grinning widely.

"I guess you must get introduce me to your cousin often. I didn't even think of that, I'm sorry. I wanted to invite both of you to a wine tasting to give a few people an exclusive look at the Fathvell tasting room in our keep before our ball next week, and since I have never talked to Damien, it would be rather odd of me to just walk up and invite him..."

He chuckled. "Again, I'm sorry if I made you think that I didn't actually want to dance with you. Sometimes, I can be a bit of a bafoon. I guess I should have led with the invitation, and then asked you to introduce me to Damien."

Felix chuckled. Only his cousin would think that his instincts to flip her over and pin her to the ground were "amazing." She wasn't even scared that she'd get hurt? That was probably because she liked to talk with pirates. He realized that he was vastly underestimating Eliza. He had been for years. He was supposed to protect her as one of the house Mistborn. That was supposed to be his job, but she was more than capable of taking care of herself.

She just needed to be taught how. So that was what Felix would do. He would teach her to take care of herself so that when she didn't have him around, she would still be able to defend herself if it came to that.

"Well, it is more about momentum, but if he has pewter like we suspect, he'll have the dexterity to get out of a hold like that," Felix said, smiling. "There are other ways to hurt or disable even a pewterarm, though. Which I could also teach you if you wanted."

He realized he was rambling and decided to start sparring with Eliza as he finished talking. He took a stance and came at her, a bit slowly, but he wanted to make sure she was ready. Which she clearly was. She was trained by Nat. There was no reason to go slow.

Eliza moved so quickly at the mention of disarming, that Felix was taken off guard. His immediate first reaction to flip his attacker over and make sure they were grounded. He got so far as to put his hand on Eliza's arm before he realized exactly who he was attacking. Best Cousin was not actually a target to eliminate. She just scared him. Felix loosened his death grip on her arm. "Sorry... reflexes." He said, looking apologetic.

"I should have known Uncle Nat taught you to fight. It makes sense what with the pirates and all." Felix flexed the hand that held Eliza's arm. "He taught me everything I know about knives. He came up to Austrex occasionally to help me train because I needed more than just Aunt Cora to teach me how to fight, I guess. Different perspectives" He made a grand gesture with both arms at the last statement.

"So, then, we should probably just spar and see what else we picked up from Uncle Nat?" He asked.

Arisella is so well thought out that I completely forgot that her application wasn't actually complete before. I absolutely love her of course! She's obviously accepted!
