Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Speak to her about her history

How did she come to take animescence?

"I ran the animescence hospital at Adam's Way."

"I was scrupulous. Was never present when a patient burst into flame. When I felt too much pity, I would reassign staff... but I was less cautious outside the hospital." She goes to her stock of instruments and swabs each in ice water.
"I had received news that an enemy of mine was shamed and embarrassed. I was so carried away with angry pleasure — I actually think I was talking to myself. Of course in that mood I was far too vulnerable not to take the disease, when an animescent beggar combusted in the street. The Nidaheen sent him to infect me."

What news gave her such angry pleasure?

She is being elusive about the detail.

A savage smile

"The Presbyterate do not share their immortality," she says, and she holds a blade in the flame. "But one of them made an exception for his daughter, and broke all the laws of his kind to send her the gift, because he hoped it would reconcile the rift between them."
Her face is blank where anger would be, if her spleen were not a prism.
"Mariam — the daughter — she gave the gift away to a Khaganian general, to spite her father and punish the Presbyterate. The last person they would have wanted to immortalise. I found that outcome... satisfying."

Restore Rosina to her role as Healer of the Seven

She is recovered now, and the cause needs her. Will she return?


Rosina's smile is as sharp as her spleen. "Yes. I have unsettled business with the Nidaheen. Tell Mariam I am ready.
"And thank you, Addressed As for allowing me a second opportunity. I have been unable to consider revenge these last ten years, for fear of accelerating my condition. Now, I find it difficult to think of anything else."

Deliver a love letter to Rosina

She smiles at the author's name

A letter savoured

Rosina reads slowly. After a sentence or two, she looks in your direction: her expression is fierce, as though you were talking in church. You step away into the other room until she is ready for you to return.
When you do, she says: "Return to Lorenzo and give him my love. It's too late for me to assist Lorenzo, if I ever could. But if you do happen to see what is born from him, it will be worth remembering."

Seek healing from Rosina

You've been wounded, and she is an expert in these matters. You can offer her something for the sickroom, to make up for it.

Easy repairs

She is quick with a bandage and stitches. When you try to thank her, she waves aside your gratitude. "You cured a more serious condition."

Return to the rest of Anthe

Perhaps there is nothing to gain from a further consultation.
