Peripheral People Countdown – Ylendrian A-Z – D

D is for…

Discretionaries – The Discretionary Cohort was originally established as a guild of Akeloan secret-keepers. As Human-Akeloan hybrids became more prevalent, the guild expanded to provide the ultimate in discreet companionship.  Though discretionaries may engage in sex work in the course of their contracts, their true service is the safety they provide their clients.  Their guild oaths make it impossible to share anything they learn from a contracted client, unless it represents an immediate and direct threat to the Imperial ruling line.  (You can find out more about Discretionaries in the novella In Discretion.)

 

Today’s Peripheral Passphrase Letter is: W (End of first word)
