    I like the Elven approach to justice, it makes sense. To attack someone who has not attacked you nor even prepared to do so is wrong and accepting the consequences of your action can be terminal, but unavoidable. It'll be interesting to see if teh Elves can help Remus and whether he might get some hints as to just hwo the Suha children really are. It's a good chapter that gives you to think as well as moves teh story forward nicely.

    The only problem with Elven justice is the lack of human rights in war. But that's their culture. As for Remus, we'll have to see. All I can say is the Blood Elves will be keeping an eye on him. Thanks for the review!

    It depends on what human rights in war we're talking about. There's one set for soldiers and other regular combatants and aoother, much harsher set, for "irregular combatants" and terrorists such as the Death Eaters. I find the Elven Justice against the captured Death Eaters to be very much in the legal tradition of the later set, though definitely on the more severe side of that tradition. Besides, I reckon it's giving the Death Eaters the same regard for human rights, or the rights of any sentient, really, that they've given others; you reap what you sow and they've sown the wind.
