Ana tags along after Shel, who ignores both her and Hartleigh completely (which, if nothing else, is a surprising reaction to a clockwork horse, something that the vast majority of Realmsfolk would gawk at in bafflement). The commandant proceeds to round up the other four individuals who have been dispersing around the area; one of them is carrying a small bag, another holds a halberd, the third is an elf, and the fourth has glowing red eyes, but otherwise they all seem pretty nondescript. The half-orc boy Nevek gets up and ambles toward the gathering, waving for Ashur, Robyn and Dumos to follow him; assuming they do, the total of 11 individuals gathers around a large rock, which the Emeralds are treating as if it was a council table.
"Report," the husky woman says without preamble to her subordinates, who begin describing their findings as if they were little more than a team of land surveyors. It's mentioned that the chimera was found, "samples" were taken, and the remains were "sanctified" and then buried; presumably all this happened well before you got within visual range of the operation. Eventually the discussion comes around to the bagman, the most ordinary-looking of the six Enclave agents by far (the halberdier is at least noticeably more muscular than the human average, though not to the same extent Shel is). He places the sack up on the rock, opens the drawstring, reaches into it, and pulls out Hartleigh's collar, which is obviously too large to have fit within the physical space of the sack itself. As veteran adventurers, you've all heard of storage devices like this, but it's likely that none of you has actually seen one yet, and the reality does not disappoint compared to the tales.
Hartleigh immediately gets off his horse (which, being a construct, stands absolutely still while waiting for him to remount it), walks up to the table, and attempts to take the collar from the bagman - who does not relinquish hold of it. The two stare at each other for a moment, but for now they don't attempt to make an issue of things, and Shel seems content to move on with the meeting. You're not sure if she plans on getting around to your questions at some point or not, although Nevek gives you a sympathetic look that might suggest she probably will get to you, once the formalities of her job are attended to.
