    Summary

    When Aeschylus had sacrificed an old black goat to Ares, his prayer had been for an old soldier to join the city guard of the island of Aegina. Someone with strong nerves and the calm that came from many campaigns. Someone who'd put away the idea of glory. Someone who could handle the wealthy citizens, drunk sailors and visiting Athenians.

    That was why he'd prayed to Ares. Also, he couldn't very well pray to Athena given the problems with Athens. Ares was a god of city guards, or so he'd heard. So, he gave Ares an old goat.

    The man mountain who applied for the job was a bit slower on the mental oars than he'd hoped, and Aeshylus couldn't blame the man, boy really, for Aeshylus' inability to keep his eyes off the muscles on Thêritas of Thrace's muscles. But beggars couldn't be choosers.

    As it happened, it was fortunate that he hired Thêritas. Practically a miracle.

    “I get that a lot,” Geralt said.

    Summary

    Hannibal planned to keep Will in the dark about his encephalitis so he could watch that brilliant mind burn itself up and become something new. In a world without daemons, he might have got away with it.

    An AU incorporating elements of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, beginning partway through the first season of Hannibal. Due to the existence of daemons, the course of the Chesapeake Ripper case is drastically altered — and so too is the relationship between Hannibal and Will.
