Elara rubbed her pale face with her hands vigorously, her dark hair starting to come free of the braid along the scalp as she did so and turned her expression on Sybil once more, evaluating her with the hard glare from her blue eyes. "I haven't the faintest idea if I could keep a full-on rebellion from happening if I labelled her as a prisoner of war, Cyne... and how is she valuable to me in the way that you are? Could I make an addendum to our agreements with your father now? When the portal is about to be destroyed?" She said aloud, so he could hear just how ridiculous it was a supposition for her to make. "If she hadn't killed those two, if she had just entered and requested to see you... I could make her a favored guest, add her to a harem and pretend it's for my use or something to that affect... the public would not care. But now I have to go face those families of my own soldiers and tell them that a mortal killed them, and that I have granted her clemency for no other reason than the symbol of peace with mortals asked it of me." The queen began to pace in the dungeon again, striding first left and then turning to stride right , her gaze fixing on Sybil each time she passed the human woman in the cell before she turned her face away and shook her head vigorously. She muttered under her breath too while she strode, considering and discounting options just as quickly, becoming more and more frustrated with the situation each time she considered what to do with the mage in her dungeon. Finally, Elara inhaled sharply and glanced from Cyne to Sybil and back again before she strode quickly up to the bars, curling her fingers around them slowly with her eyes peering into Sybil's. "Mortal, I will spare your life. But, you must get on your knees, and swear an oath, not to me, but to your Prince, that on penalty of both your death and his, you will not attempt to kill anymore of my kind. Because if you do after I so magnanimously grant you clemency... since he is vouching for you, it will cost all of us our lives." She said quietly, her expression deadly serious.
