the honing of Vlad

Note that it seems likely to me that any amorphia generation by an
Easterner would likely result in a trip by any witness to an oubliette
at best.  That Vlad wasn't disappeared now strikes me as surprising -
perhaps Aliera was able to argue that his soul is a sufficient excuse
for the event and either the truth (doubtful) or some reasonable lie
(also doubtful) was told to the Left Hand witnesses, probably along with
a threat should anyone gossip.
