When I first started really working on D.E.I.T.Y, over two years ago now, our scribe there was not part of the original cast of characters. So when I first envisioned this scene it was very different. That serving girl, for instance, was a recurring minor character to be introduced here, and it played out from Ishar’s point of view. After Lehn showed up I wrote him in at the end of it, but I wasn’t really happy with it. Eventually I rewrote the whole thing from Lehn’s point of view, and I feel it works a lot better now. The poor serving girl is, of course, no longer a character at all – I’d never even given her a name.
