We I must say I was quite entertained the whole way of the story. Toru is truly the father figure that I think would be best for Varlet. The relationship blossomed into something beautiful and wholesome inspite of the danger surrounding it. I would have liked to see more development of Varlet's mother though, she was very interesting to me. Xylon's death was unforutante like Furio said. He was valiant in death which wrapped up his story well. Well done Dooku-Darklighter and Sistros.
