Alister Cullen, the Michaeline vicar general, shook his steel-gray head. “We daren’t use magic that openly, Guaire. Cinhil has made his feelings all too clear on that subject, of late. Besides, the men we need most are the foot soldiers from the outlying regions – humans, almost to the man. After just escaping the yoke of a Deryni tyrant, I doubt they’d willingly cooperate with any Deryni working, no matter how benign.”
“You make it sound, well, ominous,” Guaire murmured, “as if there were something sinister about your Deryni powers.”
His expression was very serious as he spoke, until he realized the irony of those words coming from his human lips and became aware of how far he, himself, had come in his estimation of the Deryni. Faint amusement registered in the eyes of the men around him, not unkindly, and Guaire colored a little in embarrassment.
Camber chuckled sympathetically.
“It’s all right, Guaire. That’s how many humans view our powers. And between the human who distrust us because we’re Deryni and the Deryni who distrust us because we deposed a Deryni king in favor of a human one, I suppose we’re lucky to have the support we do.”
