Early this morning, in the main square of Hawk's Aerie, Abon Nillu, Marquis and steward issued an official response to rumors of Hawk's Aerie's dissatisfaction with Imperial decisions. The Marquis assures that statements made on the last White Dove broadsheet regarding the threat of the Aerie going rogue are absolutely false. The Aerie remains unequivocally loyal to the Crown and hopes that the issue can be resolved without conflict. The Marquis however flatly refused to comment about his opinion regarding the appointment of a commoner to a Royal position. He muttered something about placing trust in the Council's decisions before retreating back to his office.
