Ignác crept through the quite halls of Feke-Puskís. His cover as a Feke-Odís scholar gave him wide access to the Feke-Puskís School, but it did not make people trust him, and he had less than a week left to expose the weapons smuggling ring being run by Second Apprentice Tarr Andor. Ignác had been afraid it wouldn't be enough time, but he had finally uncovered how Tarr Andor was skimming the weapons he provided the Kezdet.
Now, Ignác just had to mark a crate of weapons for the Orsá to track. Once it passed into Kezdet hands, the Orsá would have the evidence they needed to justify a raid on Feke-Puskís.
Tarr Andor's scheme was clever. Ignác did have to give him credit for that. He wasn't having his associates skim them off the assembly line as Ignác initially thought. No, the skimming started during the inspection phase. Tarr Andor, or one of his associates, would fail a functional weapon, mark it, and then a compatriot in the salvage room would set it aside for Tarr Andor to collect during one of his legitimate part runs. He'd then store it in the workshop he shared with his subordinates until he had accumulated enough to smuggle out a crate.
The only problem with the scheme was the small number of weapons it netted. It was a good way to skim long-term, but it was not a good way to get the Kezdet a large quantity of weapons quickly, and the Kezdet cells the Orsá had broken up had all been well-armed. So either Tarr Andor had a secret assembly line—unlikely since only master gunsmiths had access to the materials and facilities to run one—or the Kezdet had allies in other Puskís Schools, their own production facilities, or both.
