Chapter Summary Edit
A man named Castor Morveer is fabricating a poison that he calls The King of Poisons with his assistant Day.1 Morveer is an infamous Master Poisoner, but in his mind not as infamous as he really should be. In the distance they spot two people approaching; Monza and Shivers. This new employer has been arranged by Sajaam, and Morveer has been expecting their arrival. He greets them both warmly, shaking both their hands. He offers them refreshments, but they pointedly refuse any food or drink from the poisoner.
The negotiation for Morveer’s services seems cordial, until both Monza and Shivers suddenly fall from their chairs paralysed, by spider venom that was on the poisoners hands. However, Morveer is simply being cautious. He wants to ensure that Monza is fully committed to the murders, no matter who is killed along the path, and also that she agrees his fee. He amiable prays there are no hard feelings, and gives them the antidote. A somewhat contentious alliance has been formed.
