"Very well. Allow me to begin with background information that I believe to be pertinent to the case. I assure the council that the information, though dated, is still relevant." You say, strolling forward with your hands open, arms wide, almost as though offering the council an embrace.
"Fifteen years ago, I was captured by House Rosenkraft. During my stay, my right arm was severed as part of their torture practices. Also at the time, I learned that Rosenkraft had a Ring of Regeneration within his possession.
"Now, a week ago, I experienced a nightmare. I originally believed it to be due to stress, but the figure in my dream claimed that it was a clone created from my lost arm and the Ring of Regeneration Rosenkraft held." You pause, allowing this to sink in.
"Is that even possible?" Ghaon grumbles.
"I will explain that in a moment, General." You say quickly, not allowing his motion to go unanswered, then continue once you are sure they are satisfied for the moment. "In talking about the possibilities with Dalak Aut-Higinx, he confirmed the theoretical possibility that a clone could be created from such components.
"I then, to satisfy my curiousity, attempted to scry upon this other self. Imagine my surprise when he turned out to exist! And under the control of Drow no less!"
The council collectively frowns, save Yuune, who rarely has an expression on his face save in the most dire circumstances.
"I had another nightmare or dream meeting with this clone of mine, who called himself Tayn. While initially hostile, as the drow had set him to attempt to assassinate me, I was able to find that he was being coerced by an implant of some kind, as well as torture and brainwashing techniques. Tayn then asked for my aid, and said that his drow masters would be away for 3 weeks, during which his rescue could be effected."
