With each free citizen or visitor a potential slaver or sympathizer, and with the veiled presence of the cruel Cult of Valtharn, how long before rebellion erupts?

"You want what?"
"Passage on.... Scalvoris by Cylus... Need...Can you help?"
Yeva kept her eyes on the book before her, rereading the page in an effort to feign that she had not been trying to eavesdrop. Nevertheless Azrael and his compatriot were speaking in hushed, Lorien voices, most of which she couldn't make out anyway. Still, to be caught spying in front of another Avriel? Azrael would have no other choice but to punish her. She tried to focus on the page of the book:
The Lady's Mantle
The role of this plant is reflected in its nickname - "A Lady's Best Friend" as it may regulate a woman's blooding, climacteric (menopause), and clear inflammation of female organs.
WHOLE PLANT (Green parts only): Infuse and use as a mouth rinse after tooth extraction and for diarrhea.
LEAF: Concoct for a compress for healing wounds and inflammation.
She copied this to her notebook in an effort to ease its memorization. Knowing a common plant that could help women during their time of the season would be valuable, even to herself. She continued while Azrael produced a bag of coin, noting some more information on the next page about the best sunlight conditions for growing it yourself, as well as its natural habitat and commonly found regions:
Balm of Gileia
This plant, discovered in the desert regions of Idalos has an unnatural and masculine "musk" that has been used to give depth to perfumes. The leaf buds exude a balsamic scent and has been used to treat coughs and sore throats.
LEAF: Buds are considered to be a stimulant and antiseptic. When used in creams they may relieve arthritic pain, cuts and bruises. The buds contain a substance called salicin, which is useful in relieving minor aches and pains.
In the wild, it may grow as tall as 125 feet, but in cultivation, it tends to grow shorter. Numerous dwarf cultivars also are available...
Azrael had turned to face her while his business partner held a bag of coins in his hand, the sound of talons counting, "Pack your things. We're leaving."
She searched his face in an effort to decipher what he meant - had they booked the passage? Did his mean this very trial? Yeva jumped up from her spot in the corner and snapped her books closed, rushing to do as she was told while the questions in her mouth were caged and forced to fester. Azrael snapped a few orders, demanding that she pack correctly, or else face his wrath. This time described as a thin reed promised to whip her bloody if she diddled.
