    I did not choose 4 because Arsande is already in the middle of everything: adding a brother to the two children and the two men would be too much. I added 5 and 3 because Garnier and Corba could use some other contact, instead.
    I added 2 because a third perfect could be useful, And 1 doesn't tell me anything at all.
  • 1½ day to go. Guilhelm in the lead, the rest are tied.
  • Got some votes in yesterday from non SG'ers:
    1, 4, 5
    2, 4, 5

    Guilhelm looks like a winner. Etienne is taking off, Eloise is falling behind.
  • Voting has ended. Final result:

    Guilhelm: 9
    Etienne: 5
    Aude: 4
    Eloise: 4
    Joscelin: 4

    With three ties for #3, I have decided to alter Aude slightly and include her as:

    India
    A lady of noble birth. Heiress of the Fanjeaux fortune. Perfect.
    • Why did you give up the life as a noble to become a perfect?
    • What item of great wealth do you carry in secret?
    • What is it you cannot tell Bernard?

    Thanks to all who participated.
