"Hold still. Your attire is ... that isn't a bloodstain, is it?"
Silver-Claw said you can provide me with a disguise."Did he? Something striking, so you stand out at the next merchant lord's soiree? Or a ridiculous. crenelated affair that leaves you the talk of the brothel?"
I need to get into No Shira Citadel."If you wanted a burial suit, the Iron Wheel charges far less than I. Though perhaps ... yes. A servant's outfit will let you go hither and yon - at least above ground. And if it's one of my creations, the cloth will breathe. But it shall cost you."
What if I don't want to pay?"Then I'd assume you're from Abah's Landing. But I know a certain ... individual ... who has yet to pay the bill for just such an outfit. If you happen to reacquire if on my behalf, I would consider it your property, paid in kind."
I'll think about it."I'd prefer you deprived my shirker of his outfit, but if you're averse to saving coin, I will sell you one directly. Be warned, the disguise won't do you any good within the Iron Wheel's headquarters."
Why won't servant's disguise work inside the Iron Wheel headquarters?"Paranoia, of course. No servants are allowed inside. From what I hear, the Iron Wheel takes care of all chores within their headquarters. Anyone who isn't Iron Wheel, or escorted by them, is attacked on sight. A truly noble organization."
Couldn't you make me an Iron Wheel uniform?"I am physically capable of doing so, but it will never happen. I'd rather not end up in a prison cell. And a uniform alone won't serve as a disguise. They have too many signals and mannerisms. You'd be spotted in an instant."
