It really was the butler who was poisoning Earl Cain. Er. Earl Cain Hargreaves, so no one misunderstands.

He tried sneaking hemlock into a pearl drink he gave to Miss Merry -- Earl Cain's younger sister. Earl Cain figured out the ruse when he tried to take a sip and Riff smashed the cup away from him. The bottle of poison was in his pocket; he'd also been stealing antivenom from my medical case, it seems.

At least he confessed and went off with as little trouble as possible. I don't know why Cain doesn't simply call the police, but I think perhaps he's too distressed at the moment.

...they've found a tenth body dead from the supposed vampire as well. This whole retreat seems to be unendingly grim.

Any idea why the butler was doing that?

It's not very clear. Riffael didn't offer an explanation before he'd left, but he'd been acting strangely before this, though...he was burning Miss Merry's things in the garden a few days ago and sporting odd injuries. And he was meeting with a girl who is supposed to be connected to all the vampire killings.

Sounds like things are pretty complicated where you are.

It is. Hopefully things calm down, or we get some answers.
