Rial enters from the bar with an expression of manic intensity on his face, and marches down to the meeting room where the Grand Duke is quietly talking to people Rial doesn't know and, frankly, couldn't care less about at this moment. He goes straight up to his father, ignoring the murmurs around him, and looks the Duke straight in the eye.

"We need to organize a rescue party."

The man that Gror had been talking to wisely slips away, as the Grand Duke is no longer paying him any mind. All of his attention is on his tall son.

"Rial--" He lowers his voice, not unkindly or unsympathetically. "I'm sorry, I am, but don't you think the time has passed for a rescue party?"

He had thought that Rial had taken it much too quietly. He releases a low breath and places a hand on Rial's arm, steering him away from the small knot of advisors and courtiers. "You can't possibly know that," the elder Pernon says quietly, reasonably. "You've been running yourself ragged, son. You did everything you could. And I know it isn't what you want to hear, but you ought to get some sleep now."

"Have there been new developments?" he asks, gaze trained on Rial. "New intelligence on the location of the Priamsta base?" He shakes his head softly. "This is your world." He glances at the courtiers; Rial's people, who are all staring and trying to pretend that they're not. "I would beg you to get some rest before you go making any plans. But I cannot stop you from doing anything and you certainly do not need my permission." He shakes his head again once, tired and slow. "It is not my place."

"You already have it." Engaging in desperate grief-stricken madness or not, this is Gror's only son. He tells him, "You always do."
