The question now is who the "would-be usurpers" are. I don't think the Castle means Martellus; Drusus doesn't seem to think much of him. Drusus is working for somebody else.

The Castle may have plans of its own. Its built-in goal is to support Heterodyne power, and its idea of what that should be is a lot more brutal than Agatha's.

Yup. This is giving the Castle more freedom than is prudent -- under normal circumstances.

If he can endear himself and his mistress to the new Lady of Paris, that is worth =much= more than simply trying to suborn the City, nor would his mistress appreciate him undercutting someone she needs and wants as a friend. Good allies are more than worth the effort. He probably also knows or guesses that this is something guided by Lucrezia's hand, and she MUST be defeated, or at the very least denied whatever she seeks in Paris.

that's the sensible evaluation.

How much would you bet on Castle being sensible?

It's not impossible, but it's not the most probable thing.

It =has= shown itself capable of ruthless pragmatism in the past, especially where the survival of the family bloodline is concerned. It may be Mad in some form, but it ain't stupid. :)

I'm not expecting a blatant takeover. I'm expecting that if it sees enemies in the way and doesn't get a direct order to the contrary, it will deal with them forcefully rather than letting Agatha deal with them diplomatically.

...Depends on the enemy. :) Beausoleil needs to BURN. SLOWLY.

"Yes I am in a little box in Paris. Truly, wonders never cease." Ahhh, Castle snark is best.

Although it was good to see the mini-Kestle again, I'm actually a little disappointed with this page. The Professors are violating the old "show, don't tell" rule with the exposition here. That's necessary because they concentrated on Beausoleil and Simon Voltaire for so long, Now we're playing catch-up with the other characters, and the Professors apparently find it necessary to tell us how the "meanwhile" activities have affected the story. It might have been better if they had cut back and forth between Beausoleil/Voltaire and Tarvek/Colette.
