QuoteWhy would Nigel consider sending his son away to learn from someone else? Possibly because as a father he might have too close to be objective about Connall's needs, much as a doctor shouldn't treat members of his own family. If he had been sent to a foreign court, Connall would have been one noble page among many, rather than the Grand Duke's Heir and King's Cousin.

Quote from: Braniana on March 07, 2008, 10:36:02 PMDon't think Conall would have appreciated being 'just another squire', at least at the beginning. I'm reminded of Melanie Rawn's Dragon books. Fostering was an important part of that society, and one character had some superficial resemblances to Conall: an only son and royal heir, also a spoiled brat. He tried to lord his rank over another squire, got a drubbing, but eventually learned where his worth really came from, and ended up a good person as an adult. Perhaps the same thing would have happened to Conall.
QuoteI think it was Conall's own personality that was the problem.
