Although he still mourned his father, Dolff found that being Jarl of Windhelm wasn’t as difficult as he had feared.

Blanche raised a brow. “Yes, my queen.” She took the colt’s reins and urged her horse onward with a low, “Hyah!”
The Four of Septims represents greed, possessiveness, miserliness, and mistrust. It also suggests an emotional black hole, imbalance, desperation. Someone who is so afraid of losing what they have, they hold it too closely.
