Raven had asked Hannibal to accompany her to the orphanages she was inspecting today as a way to distract him from his recent troubles. Immersing herself in the welfare of others also helped distract herself from the same, of course, so the trip had a double purpose. Well, triple, since she was very dedicate to her duty of making sure the children of Glacia were well cared for.

There were three orphanages on her agenda for today, two to the north of Sidra, and one to the southwest. She was most concerned about the third, since it was in a province that had been deeply loyal to Hobart, and she had little doubt that many of the aristos there had little care for orphaned children, particularly landen ones. But perhaps she was just being pessimistic and all would be well.

Yeah, right.

[For le cannibal. Warning: dark themes ahead (this is Kaeleer, after all). And the third thread is going nsfw, la.]

Hannibal nodded at the children as they came to goggle at the newcomers, particularly his strange clothing. "They seem happy enough; is there a lack of funds here, or a lack of the skills to manage them?"

"Perhaps you could draw up a list of your expenses for the last several months?" Hannibal suggested. "Then we would be better able to judge what sort of budget you'll need. And determine if the merchants you deal with are treating you fairly."

Too many dishonest people thought they could hide extra costs in an institutional budget. And judging by the state of the orphanage and children, these people had more experience in caring for children than budgets.

Hannibal smiled at a tiny blonde girl peeking around a corner at them, and she giggled and fled. Well, money management could be taught more easily, at any rate.

Better her than Hannibal, most likely. Though he did make a mental note to speak to Raven about looking into these people's salaries on the off-chance the man had a need to be taking funds.

"Thank you, Jenet." Hannibal nodded to the woman. "For your time with us, and for your care of the children. Is there anything else you think we ought to know?"

"Commendable foresight," Hannibal told the woman, nodding pleasantly. He turned to Raven. "To what extent do the different orphanages communicate with each other? Those at the last one might be well served by learning from this."

He watched the children for a moment, then added, "And if there are conflicts between the children, or a child is simply a poor fit for a particular type of management, they could be relocated to somewhere more suited to them."

Hannibal tousled the boy's hair to distract him, smiling. "We come from other worlds. Nobody in my world has a Jewel. And there are no unicorns or winged people, either." He leaned forward as if sharing a secret. "Very boring."

"It is," Hannibal agreed. "Do many of them get adopted, or is this home for most?"

"Thank you for your time, Maudelyn. And for all you do for the children," Hannibal told her, nodding pleasantly.

"This is the one that concerned you most?" Hannibal asked. He looked the building over keenly. It looked perfectly fine from here, but although Hannibal might not have Raven's empathy, he had very good instincts, and they told him appearances could be deceiving in this case.

"I don't believe so." Hannibal took in Raven's expression. "Should she have?"

[OOC: The mun doesn't think so, anyway! And Hannibal's perfectly capable of lying if I'm wrong, lalala!]

"Hopefully none of them would be placed in charge of children," Hannibal answered. "But we'll walk carefully just the same."

He got a great deal of pleasure out of deserved suffering, but not of children under his care. That would have been extremely rude.

Sorry not sorry, whoever you were: Hannibal was better at that game. He gave the man a look that was every bit as bored, arrogant, and amused as years in high society had taught him.

"If the one that holds your leash isn't interested in our business, we can always take it elsewhere. Along with the information on where their money comes from." He looked the man over, becoming more visibly amused. "Or we could let them know where your money is going to." With people like this, greed or fear almost always won out. And there was always something they were hiding.
