Hugh D'Abernon, Marquis of Darley, was in Sevastopol for one reason only: to reconnoitre the town for the British Secret Service. So if he encounters a woman of unparalleled beauty in need of his help, he will do his duty and smartly escort her back to town - then continue on his way. He will not consider being diverted from the task at hand.
