Long dark hair flows over Aram's shoulders as he stands in front of a river landscape with soldiers in the background. It is evening. His face and clothing are bloodied from battle, but he has an undaunted expression.

Description: Broad-shouldered and sturdy-looking despite his leanness, the other was about my height. He wore a similar cloak, its tanned scalps dyed in shades of red. Bone beads trimmed the neck and sleeves in a swirling pattern that reminded me of tempest gusts or ocean waves. His long, nut-brown hair was sunstreaked with strands as bright as brass, and woven throughout were narrow braids bound with golden wire.

Aram’s lips spread, nearly smiling, but his look was more dangerous than friendly. “Hadad of Tyre did not choose you.” Glancing down the alley at Mahamari and back to me, he lowered his voice. “You live to be a king. A king might be worth something to Hadad–even a king like you. But, you are no king of mine. For Mahamari, I will keep your blood off my blade.”
