Unfortunately, I do not have time to RP due to staff obligations. Poor Elizabeth has to suffer for it. As per absence thread, I'll be out this next week. Maybe more. If you absolutely need her, skype me. Otherwise, assume her oddly absent from the castle if people come searching.
After many days of absence from the Queensport castle, a lone steed is found alongside the gates. Elizabeth Kane's horse she cared for personally, and that had been gone from the stables as long as the Duchess had been. Blood cakes the side of the horse, although no wounds of its own can be found. Saddlebags filled with enough for a a short trip, maybe a day's worth of rations and untouched in the bag. The reins hang loose, and the leather strip shredded from something seemingly trying to gnaw it.
From where the horse came, it is uncertain. The blood does not bode well for the fate of its rider, off in the frozen snow.
