I really didn't like that, but I have no way to change it. She must have heard some speculation depending on the way the ship was headed when it left the dock.
There is another way we can get you frustratingly tangled in Imperial bureaucracy. You look up the Scarlet Shepherd to see if it is properly registered in with the Imperial Department of Airships. You want to know if the owner has taken all the proper steps of owning an airship; background checks, identification, and all that jazz. You want to know the names of the owner, captain, and crew members. You want to know if it the build of the ship is up to regulation standard, fog-powered with not too many weapons or not too powerful an engine.
After a long and exasperating call that involves being redirected to every possible bureau related to air travel, you discover that the Scarlet Shepherd does not legally exist. This looks extremely suspicious and you advise the diabolical Dela to follow up on this lead.
