Sharing a table
with ... Cirily
by Drakus Lightquill
This is the first in a series of nine sessions of our fine editor speaking with each of the nine councilors that make up the Sigil Advisory Council. Next month, we'll bang around with Arwyl Swan's Son.
Lightquill: Thank you for agreeing to this interview councilor Cirily.
Cirily: Most wise of you to come to me first. It is my pleasure.
DL: Actually, I inquired to the entire Sigil Advisory Council, and you were kind enough to reply first. If fact, you seemed quite eager to do this interview. May I ask why?
C: Two reasons actually. First, I want to stamp out that ugly libal that has been spread about me recently. Second, I wanted to help pass my message of purity, as spoken by the Planarists.
DL: Well go at those in order then, shall we? By that ugly bit of libel, do I assume you refer to that interview you did with Quida before one of her Mimir was stolen during the War?
C: You mean that travisty that is being passed around. I never did an interview with the woman. Everyone knows she's a sodding spiv who never speaks except to lie.
DL: Of course. That's why she has a hoard of Mimirs who fly around her at all times to record herself lying forn her own ammusement. But lets move to your second point. You plan to use the Torus Times to pass your "message of purity"?
C: Yes, all of Sigil needs to know how to better itself. That's why I first campaigned for a seat of the S.A.C. Sigil needs cleaning up, and that's what I'm here to do.
DL: Any by cleaning up Sigil, you mean?
C: Getting rid of the sodding primes infesting the Cage.
DL: So your "pseudo-faction" called the Planarists want to kick out all the beings born on the prime material plane.
C: First off, we are not a faction. We had nothing to do with the war, and calling us one is libel.
DL: My apologies. Then what should we call them.
C: The future of Sigil. We recognize the it was the primes that were responsable for the entire faction war.
DL: Really? How did your brain-box come to that conclusion?
C: Well, it should be cobvious to even the most leather-headed rube, shouldn't it? It was the primes who took the faction beliefs to a fanaticism that caused the war to burn the city. It was the prime group called the Harmonium that seeded violence into our daily lives. And, if rumor be trusted, it was the prime factol "Duke" Rowan Darkwood that started the war in the first place.
DL: So you trust rumor, even though it is rumor that mars you so badly due to Quida?
C: Well, it should be clear which chant is true and which isn't to the well-lanned cutter. Any basher should be able to keep it clear, right?
DL: Indead. Maybe it would be wise to more away from questions of rumor, and instead more to more clear fact, okay?
C: You are right. No need to linger on rumors. Rumors can get a body lost, right?
DL: So you would agree we should talk about your short time thus far on the council. It is clear how strongly you believe in your beliefs from your speechs to the rest of the council. Is it true that even in private meetings you show your firre heritage and turn into a pillar of flame?
C: Well, that is part of celestial nature. We emblamize the passions in all of us. That's why many of us are vieled, going to the prime material plane to encourage the arts.
DL: And you decided against doing that because...
C: I did at first, but once i saw my folly, I came back home to the outer planes, where I belong. I mean, the primes have their own plane. Why must they take our fine city of Sigil too?
DL: Is this why you oppose, usually in flaming form, any suggestions made by councilors Arwyl Swan's Son, Tarpish Fineberry, and Mara Heartsinger?
C: No, I oppose their leatherheaded schemes because they are poor. Swan's son only Archon screed, Tarpish is just a weak-willed mouthpeice for that criminal Schmechka the Marauder, and don't even start me on "Councilor Heartsinger". She uses her bard abilities just to mire the council in details of freedom such that no law would exist in this city. They should all be dismissed from the council, especially Heartsinger, as she didn't herself run to be nominated. Her little attack dog Harmony did everything while her mistress was lost. She didn't deserve to be elected!
DL: You passion is clearly coming out. Should I get my fire protection now?
C: You will leave now.
