As was reported earlier, the Elkin Family Estate in Dam-Torsad was the scene of a suicide firebombing resulting in a massive blaze that did inconceivable amounts of damage. Both the Eastern and Western sections of our garden was, for all intents and purposes, destroyed. This is including not just the plant life, but also statues, bridges, and various other fixtures. Additionally the reports suggesting that members of our House have gone missing in the wake of the tragedy are unfortunately true. My daughter, Jacqueline Susanne Elkin, my grandson, Xavier Lawrence Elkin, and his two young children have yet to be accounted for since the fire was extinguished. We are working with the authorities towards bringing to light, without question, the perpetrators of this heinous attack and I have been assured that finding the missing members of our family is of the highest priority.
From here on we begin to rebuild, replace, and regrow all that was taken out today. This is however, an arduous task that will take quite some time. While the damaged buildings can be repaired in several months time, the gardens will likely take centuries to fully return to their former glory. All those wishing to aid the relief effort may offer their help by mail addressed to me personally. Above all else, we hope that all those of the Faith stand with our House and pray that the villains responsible are quickly exposed.
I would like to also note that by my request, my granddaughter, Arsia Victoria Elkin, will be taking a leave from these forums for a few weeks time in order to give her a chance to decompress. Emotions run high during these trying times and I want to ensure she can recover and isn’t goaded into doing anything she would regret.
This disaster will not shake our House. In fact, that we have drawn the ire of the wicked proves our righteousness. We will remain steadfast in all of our endeavors. As that is the case, all Elkin Family services, including those available from any Citadels we own, will be unaffected.
Lady Leona Cordelia Elkin of Dam-Torsad
