Tongues are wagging after the normally quiet spoken G'val was suddenly reassigned from Roc wing after his encounter with the new Wingleader. Some say the Wingleader booted him out after his failure to follow up on the precious runner cargo, while others are hinting that Yhri threatened the other brownrider within an inch of ::between::.

Whatever the reason, the wing is down another rider as the workload for its members continues to plummet. The interim Wingleader has certainly got her work cut out for her as word spreads of Roc Wing and Fort Weyr's fiasco. Will her head end up on the chopping block like poor N'hon's? And if so, who will rescue the rescuer then?
