Cyfer continues on with his day, settling into a fairly common routine with himself in Esus. Every day he's see to the common folk, helping them the best he can with what little resources he had. Providing food if needed, healing the sick or injured or simply just being there for friendly conversation and to make their concerns known. Sure somedays he might learn good information things to directly help in his investigations though that never was his real goal. Esus is a city ripe with opportunity which those whom are quick enough and wise enough will find wealth, prestige, and power and Cyfer intended to get all three.
The others in the city keep fighting different squabbles, bandits with some unknown agenda other people trying to unlock the secrets of the last regime, all the while they completely ignore a large source of power which those in the past positions as well. The 'little people'. Cyfer knew, much as he learned back on his home plane that there is much power in being a hero. To be someone the masses looked up to, someone who can sway the people to do as he wanted. Cyfer always found them fairly easy to manipulate, even if he truly did desire to help. The other thing he learned, people don't know what they need and they want and it is up to him to show them. It'd be easier for him to weasel his way into the hearts and minds of people then he ever had in his years of trying back home. In Esus there is an absent government, people without work, and people with absolutely no hope. The common folk leaving in droves to find wealth and a better life else where on the isles and by this point the city was half-dead. At home, he had to deal with a bunch of barbarians happy to just rape and pillage never willing to build something more, never looking to build an empire. Here though, in Esus. The people are looking for a change and Cyfer would unite them for that change.
So he continued, day in and day out. Trying to be seen as a friendly face, happy to smile and help take on the burdens of those forgotten. He'd be the hero they needed, a person to rally behind the one and only person on their side. He'd show them kindness as in the end, he truly did desire to help them. That makes Cyfer a good person right? Cyfer couldn't remember any longer remember where his codes of honor and wish to help others began and where his desires for power and his ambition ended. In the end, were they ever all that different? Who cares if he figured out by helping others he can help himself, in the end he was truly helping where no one else would and in the end in his own mind he'd benefit the most from it. Power in Esus was his, each person he helped had the chance to support him in his eventual claims. Each person another soldier in some future revolution he would command. Tia may have recognized just as he did the city was ripe for a revolution, but she never had the intelligence to truly understand how to seize on that. How to make sure she controlled the revolution and it would put her in the position of power she desired. Cyfer certainly wouldn't make that mistake.
