You mentioned your intent to speak to Logain about the mystery figure in the alleyway. When you do, Logain goes white and then tells Jareth that he must have imagined it before rushing off to a “private class.” He brushes off any attempts to get additional info. Needless to say, this is mildly frustrating, but shortly after Jareth is departing, Arise makes an appearance and gestures for him to join her.
She was eavesdropping, she tells him in a tone of voice that implies she does it all the time, and she heard about his encounter.There’s a reason why her father didn’t want to say anything.
The Story as she knows it: Logain was once a mid-level instructor at the Acadamae but discovered hints of a Coven within its ranks composed entirely of Darkfriends. He investigated along with his best friend, but never found actionable evidence. Instead, his best friend was murdered in a way similar to how Jareth describes the rogue died. From what little he did learn, if the Templars learn about this Coven, it’s inevitable that they’d declare the Rite of Annulment and kill every mage in the city.
Arise isn’t sure how Logain managed to get out of the Acadamae intact, but he did and has kept a low profile since then - she isn’t even sure if “Logain” is his real name. Clearly, her father is afraid that the Coven is making a move once more.
Let me know if you have additional questions or want me to expound further (provided you know she doesn't know everything.)
What are Darkfriends... I am not sure if this is an in or out of character question (if Jareth would know or not - because I certainly don't)
It would be out-of-character. If you recall, I ditched the normal kitchen sink of gods and replaced it with The Creator and the Dark One. Darkfriends is the slur used for "Friends of the Dark," or those fools who ally themselves with the Dark One. Paladins and clerics derive their powers from saints, who receive channel the power from either the Creator or the Dark One.

If you still feel the need respond to a perceived insult, please let me know, in specific, how I could have rewritten my post in an unoffensive manner.
