|“||Is this because I called you poor? You want to prove that you're wealthier then me? Well, my dear sister, I freely admit it. I have no wealth of my own. But I live in a mansion the size of this whole Outpost. I have servants that wait on my day and night. And I have the ear of the future King. It's not about money, dear sister. It's about power.||”|
In "Regarding the Matter of Garret Spears", Gertrusha doesn’t believe that Elinor knows Gwynn but Janzo defends Elinor by saying it’s true and that he’s friends with her as well. Elinor yells at Janzo to be quiet. Gertrusha wants Elinor to tell her information about Gwynn’s financial status. Gertrusha also wants to know if Gwynn likes men or women, which Janzo finds a confusing thing for her to ask. Gertrusha insinuates that Gwynn isn’t interested in the rich, attractive, baron, but pays more attention to her chambermaid. When Gertrusha turns her anger and insults on Elinor, Janzo respectfully comes to his mother’s defense and Gertrusha leaves.
That night at The Nightshade Inn, Tobin and Gertrusha are drinking together with him more intoxicated then her. Tobin recaps his disaster over giving Gwynn lingerie, and Gertrusha scolds him for his lack of an emotional or even decent gift. She tells Tobin that Gwynn is a Queen and requires more tasteful shows of affection. When a guard arrives and announces the Queen is being held hostage, all the soldiers leave the Inn to help. Gertrusha insists that Tobin go and help as this could be his chance to prove himself.
