The chronicler’s notes on Lord Shade’s rise

June 9th, 1865
The 2nd age, Edo’s dawn

What is the essence of the man? No. That sounds stupid. My father said it best in this fashion.

“If I had one fault regarding Styx is the man being to damn clingy with the few friends he has and to damn steam cycle mad.” – Lord Ethan Skylark, May 6th, 1863.

My father meant of course that Lord Shade didn’t engage in the sport of wrenching and gambling as a past time as my father had occasion to do.

Lord Shade has always been a man of proticular tastes. Sense his youth he prefers beer, horses and stream cycle racing. Most importantly he has always preferred the company of a select few chosen intimates of a small circle. The exclusion of whores being his chief concern. Not from a moralistic point of view but a more practical sense. Lord Shade has little trust for people outside his circle.

Lady Shade said it as follows..
“Styx has never encountered a whore that hasn’t tried to remove his natural endowment or been a chief element in him almost losing his life.”

Now…We come to a brief account from Lord Ethan Skylark on meeting, trainning and the first cases my father and Lord Shade went on. I will tell their tales leaving no detail out as I have seen it but for certain events of private information of clients still in Lord Shade’s books.


Now. Their meeting began some eighteen years ago in a private club of Lords at the tail end of a poker game my father was losing….on purpose.

To be continued…

Warm regards
