Disrepute


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

Servants bring employers into disrepute if anyone in authority arrives at your castle to question them.

If the servant in question ends up in prison then no-one will have anything to do with them.

Servants usually sort out their own business. We sometimes hear either strange noises or strange rumours and when questioning our butlers are told that it is servants’ business and that they will see the noise is kept down.

So to have anyone in authority to shine a light on an employee is a problem in itself.

If it is the human police we furnish the servant with a lawyer, which will be withdrawn if it is a sexual offence.

The Ruler’s Men are another matter, as we can lose Status if someone in our employ has done something wrong.

In that case, all we can do is wait until the servant is returned to us or not.

If not, we will be told that the servant is assisting The Ruler’s Men permanently.

We will not be told the offence, but when these rare occurrences happen, things leak out.

Usually we hear that the servant has been selling information about The Ruler’s Men.

This is foolish in the extreme and even an Obligatee would be within their rights to refuse to answer such a question and would probably report back to The Rulers’ Men that it had been asked.

Unfortunately as employers we are responsible for what our servants do. Yes, it is also the butler’s responsibility but what you humans do not seem to realise these days is that it is the responsibility of the person at the top.

We will question the butler as to what happened and why it happened, but it is our Status that is reduced because of our servant’s fault.
