Alfion had booked passage on a ship to Antara-Ethcabar under the name Gerd ul-Dorn Arlok, to depart 21.VIII.489. When he was a no show at the designated time for boarding and thus couldn’t pay the rest of his fee, his belongings stored on the ship were promptly turned over to the Port Authority.

Thus Arms-Lieutenant Silverbow receives a package containing these things with a note explaining their findings at the Wharf District Garrison.
