Shafiq Rashid

‘So,’ says Jory.  ‘You got yourself bound to a Knightly device after all.’ 

Shafiq smiles thinly.  ‘That’s not how we’d put it here.  We’re not so keen on Knights, or binding for that matter.  But yes, it’s true in your terms.’ 

‘But it’s a rogue device,’ says Jory.  ‘A renegade.  What’s the point of that?’ 

Shafiq sighs.  ‘All that means is that it falls outside your control.  It’s a point outside your Circle, that’s all.  And since I wasn’t welcome inside… well, what else was I to do?’  

‘Not that.  Really… just… not that.’

The Pendragon Protocol, p144
