Rebel Fighter: Pssst. Hey you.
<Character>: Uh... are you talking to me?
Rebel Fighter: Keep your voice down! You are <Character>, yes?
<Character>: Yah, I am. Have we met? I'm sorry I don't have much of a memory for faces... and yours is covered.
Rebel Fighter: No, I have friends in Falconreach who said that you might head this way, and might be able to help us.
Rebel Fighter: Yes... I am risking more than you could know by telling you this. I am a member of the resistance, fighting against the tyrant...
Rebel Fighter: ... Sek-Duat XV! I don't have much time, he's set his hound on me. We need your help or we are all doomed.
<Character>: I'll help you if I can but I don't understand this. You'll need to tell me more.
Rebel Fighter: We have no money to offer you... Sek-Duat has taken it all... but we can pay you in information.
Rebel Fighter: We know the location of the Orb of Light, and we know that you need to collect the orbs before your foe, Sepulchure does.
<Character>: The Orb of Light is here? I'll do what I can to help you, but the orb is very important to me. Can you take me there?
Rebel Fighter: Yes, I can take you. This is wonderful news! I must tell the others before I am captured.
Rebel Fighter: Please... If I am captured before we reach the resistance... YOU MUST NOT LET ANYONE know that you are working with us!
<Character>: ... Ok, I will do what you ask. But I can protect you...
Rebel Fighter: Not from Zhoom! If he finds out that you are working with us, he will NEVER stop until he has you.
Rebel Fighter: We will leave as soon as I have secured my snapping camel's saddle.
Ready when you are!
A fabulous cutscene where Zhoom takes down the resistance fighter
Zhoom: One more rebel for Sek-Duat. Thank you stranger, If you had not been distracting him, he might have slipped away again.
<Character>: Um... No problem! Heh Heh *nervous smile* Happy to do my part.
Zhoom: This sand-rat is a member of the so-called resistance. Tell me, did you know that you were having a conversation with a wanted man?
Rebel Fighter: Yes, he's a rebel too.
Rebel Fighter: .... and we were just standing in the middle of town, in an open market making plans to defeat you and overthrow the tyrant who hired you.
Rebel Fighter: Come on, Zhoom. How stupid do you think we are?
Zhoom: Very, but I see your point. Even you rebels could not be THAT stupid. This <Class> was just in the wrong place at the right time.
<Character>: I have a name. It's <Character>. I was just trying to buy this guy's snapping camel off of him. Say, did you see where it went?
<Character>: It looks like he won't need it anymore after you're done with him.
Zhoom: HAHA! I like your attitude <Character>. I am Zhoom and I have no plans to kill this man. I just deliver them to Sek-Duat XV.
Zhoom: What the emperor does with the members of the resistance is his business. You seem like someone who could appreciate a little gold.
Zhoom: I'm going to return this man to the palace and collect one more bounty. After that I will return here. Come see me if you want some work.
<Character>: I'll do that.
