With the King’s departure, the room descended into the loud buzz of hundreds of voices all talking at once. Alator seemed alone, despite the swirling crowds around him. But then it was not his job to fit in. He would never gain all of their trust. He had been absent too long, with too many unanswerable questions. But he could try. It was, after all, his entire purpose for being the only one of him kind left.

He could at least start with the foliage. It was not Elvish magic that had brought them into being, instead something far older, with languages never heard spoken in hundreds of years.

Words twisted under his breath, summoning enough power to counter anything that was there. The was a blinding flash of sapphire light which radiated from the blue stone trapped in the top of his staff. Then with a merry chuckle he said, “My apologies to any gardens, I never was a keen horticulturist!”

Now for the second, far more complex spell. Nothing like this had been tried since Melian dwelt in Beleriand- but if you knew how. A binding spell would conceal the city from anyone who the King did not wish to enter it. And in it also, all bearers of evil magic would find themselves outside the city walls. All of them.

Alator had the forces of Eru on his side.
