Meanwhile, Eldri is a svart-elf. He is distinguished, wrinkled, and wise. He is Emily’s godfather, and her grandmother’s godfather, and several generations before that too, as well as the premiere crafter of game-playing robots in the entirety of the British Isles.

He it was who made the ultimate Frisbee-playing robot, that once caught a boomerang going both ways and therefore dislocated it in time.

He it was whose Chess-playing robot brought Death finally to tears.

He might have stood toe-to-toe with the cleaning man; gone three rounds with him, and saved us all; this story might have been about Mr. Eldri, not Mr. Enemy, if he hadn’t been blinded by his fears.

But that’ll come later on.
