And how complete a list low ranking elves had access to, since the Excavation Book seems to be one of the few if ONLY places with all the coordinates listed. And whether she's familiar enough with any part of Farrel to know where the gates might be.

Sarine strikes me as the kind of person who does good investigative work but then, metaphorically speaking, the police commissioner yells at her and calls her a dangerous maverick and she's out of line and he wants her off this case and he's going to bust her down to corporal or something.
If she HAS rank, I doubt she's been able to KEEP it, if you get me. There seem to be a lot of higher ranking elves she meets that flat out overrule her despite having their heads up their asses. Including the guys in Saus, and you can't tell me they were all that high ranking. And I know that we're comparing two different branches of armed services between the rangers and the military, but it definitely seems like anyone in the military outranks her. Like she's just law enforcement, and the military sees her as kind of a civilian.
In short, I think the "Lady Sarine" thing comes from her family, since one elf who might be her mom seems to be affluent enough to sit on the council. And I think Sarine knowing the codes to get into the council might just be Sarine being Sarine. She knows it because she's subversive as hell and makes it a point to get her hands on stuff like that.
Does she work much in Farrel? I got the impression somehow that she didn't know the area well.
the elves seem to have been surprisingly conciliatory about such things compared to, say, the way France has historically treated their people who were on the wrong side. But it's still the thing that drives her interactions with the elves.
