Gratillonius And Rudi Mackenzie
For my take on the differences between these roles, see here.
For Gratillonius' achievements, see here.
Rudi is riding beside a baron when the baron's people begin to cheer the baron. Rudi moves back so that the baron alone can take the cheers.
When Rudi advises the baron to petition the Lady Regent, he adds that he knows the Princess and that the Princess' mother, the Lady Regent, listens to her. He need not add that he will urge the Princess to advise her mother.
Rudi is a natural diplomat. One of his men observes his dealings with the baron and reflects on what a Chief he will make.
