*Punctilio: Strictness or exactness in the observance of formalities or amenities
Mother was always one for punctilio, never was a single object left out of place and never was a guest left ungreeted. It was a stifling upbringing but it helped to teach me all the proper behaviours for mingling with the upper class. Such it was that skills I’d inherited from loathsome childhood become integral to my survival in a cutthroat world and aided me in my rise to power.
