Agent Smith reports to Ryuusei Cartwright following the death of Epheel...
«Agent Smith and Ryuusei are standing in front of the Necromancer Fortress. Diviara is in the shadows»
Agent Smith: Your control is dwindling, General. First your predecessor defected, and now so has Nightbane.
Ryuusei: Dwindling? Is it really?
Agent Smith: It certainly looks that way. Nightbane has killed the spider and has proclaimed he will see The`Galin dead.
Ryuusei: It is a bit late for noble ends for Balius. You know as well as I that seeing The`Galin dead is not possible. Things are as they should be.
Agent Smith: Nightbane killed Epheel and attacked me! You call that as is should be?
Ryuusei: Epheel outlived his usefulness a hundred years ago or more. You seem no worse for his "assault."
Ryuusei: As for Balius, his fate is not tied up in just his feelings for his daughter, but also in his feelings for his son.
Agent Smith: How do you propose you can use Edward against him? It is not as if he will cooperate in that effort.
Ryuusei: Smith, "baby," you of all people should be able to piece it together.
Agent Smith: We let nature take its course by directing the activity of Battleonia?
Ryuusei: Very good. Perhaps you are not as stupid as a Terran after all.
Agent Smith: Do you think that will work?
Ryuusei: I am certain of it. Balius links his nobility with his power. He links his "redemption" with killing The`Galin.
Agent Smith: So he will seek to regain what he has lost to the son. Is that even relevant compared to his other power?
Ryuusei: What matters is that he thinks it is. We will not have to turn the father against the son. Their enmity is ageless.
Agent Smith: Neither Zephyr nor the master will likely approve of such tactics. They consider reform desirable.
Ryuusei: The Terrans have some worth. Their sayings carry wisdom.
Agent Smith: What has that to do with anything?
Ryuusei: What they do not know cannot hurt us.
Agent Smith: You walk a thin line.
Ryuusei: Razor thin, but I know how to play the game.
Agent Smith: So what is my objective at this point?
Ryuusei: Celegra's son. Bring him to me.
Diviara: Amiliara... he has returned to Lore? I directly instructed him to remain on Caelestia.
«Falerin teleports in»
Falerin: Cutting it close, are we Diviara?
«Falerin teleports Diviara and himself to K'eld Ner»
Diviara: They are targeting my son!
Falerin: Regrettable. What do you plan to do?
Diviara: I can do nothing. Certainly not attack. That is what they want me to do.
Diviara: They may have even known I was there and hoped that my actions would alert them to where Amiliara is.
Falerin: That potential cannot be ignored. Lord Darin?
Lord Darin: Yes, Loremaster?
Falerin: My recollection is that you are both an expert tactician and a communicant of the Water Lord. Is that correct?
Lord Darin: I do not know that I would say expert... I have some skill.
Falerin: We have no time for false modesty.
Lord Darin: Very well, then. Yes, what you said is true.
Falerin: You will take a group and secure Amiliara Celegra before Cartwright and Smith get a chance.
Lord Darin: What of my duties here? King Tralin...
Falerin: ...Will agree with my course. I know the king as well as I knew his father. He will not allow Amiliara to fall into enemy hands.
Lord Darin: You knew Draynor directly? I was of the impression--
Falerin: Yes, I knew Draynor, but that's not what I meant. Draynor was human. I meant his biological father.
Lord Darin: I see... Well, either Kithia or Shirian will need to come here to run things in my stead.
Falerin: I will see to it. Diviara, with me.
Lord Darin: Very well.
