Define: anodynely

I have no idea what this word means, I found it while reading a fan fiction and I think the author must have made it up, but it isn’t a sci-fi / fantasy story so I am turning to you all to see if any of you know what the author means to say?

Here’s the usage:

“…And they were expected to tolerate a certain level of what the contract described somewhat anodynely as “poor behaviour” with good humour.”

M-W has no idea what I’m talking about, nor does And none of them have any helpful suggestions for misspellings.


A horribly thesauratic perversion of “soothingly”?
