Ofeig is reaching the end of his patience with Padern and company and it shows at times.Ofeig is a young man, with the fire of youth. It may be that fire will never leave him, but it may also be that in time he will mellow. And - I feel this is important - he does listen to those he trusts. Also, if his regency has shown anything it is that he can "play along" when needed. I don't doubt he will never want to do so again, but he can, if it is required.
Meanwhile he gets right to the centre of the issue at hand with the audacity of youth. The conspirators best indeed beware.
