My Dear Fellow,
I used no underhanded means at all, I hired a thief who was well paid for entering the room that your heart was stored in, and then summoning me in. The Thief was infact a citizen of Mercinae, and owes no personal alliegence to you. If he is a member of the cult then it explains why he wouldnt retrieve any of the items needed to bring down the demoness that currently haunts us.
P. S Fenrir was a pussy.
