Illyrian Lives – the magazine celebrating all those of note
New in town this week:
Two new arrivals in town this week are Sebastian and his friend Antonio. They are a contrasting pair as Sebastian is from a noble family in his home country and Antonio is a sea captain. The circumstances of their arrival are dramatic as they survived a recent terrible shipwreck on Illyria’s shores. We hear that Antonio, with his extensive sea-faring expertise, is the one who was responsible for rescuing Sebastian. This seems to have led to their becoming the firmest of friends, despite their differences in status. Prior to their recent arrival in town, it is understood that they have spent three months in the countryside while they recovered from their ordeal.
Of interest to readers may be some reports which have circulated suggesting that Antonio is not in fact new to this country. It is thought that he may be that same captain who was accused of certain strange attacks on Illyrian shipping some years ago, though this is not confirmed. What is certain however is that the two are the firmest of friends and if Sebastian regards Antonio so highly then it is hard to think Antonio could have been responsible for past crimes.
