I switch to the POV (point of view) of Lord Jonathan Redley, Justin’s father, for this scene. Lord Redley has been ruling Valheigh as Rune’s regent, but he hasn’t heard word from Rune for so long that he fears that the prince is dead.

The saying “that which is written cannot be unwritten” plays a large role in this scene. Redley knows he made a mistake when he disowned Justin, but he doesn’t think it can be undone, because it is written in the Archive.

I love this exterior shot of Radcliffe Castle, built from Castle Creator.

Notice that Redley is wearing his signet ring, as are the other Lords later in this scene.

You can’t read the text of the Archive at this resolution, but it records the history of kings of Valheigh, most recently naming Rune’s father.
