Carat / Rose Soldier
Location: Smoke in the Trees, B.F.C.
Smoke in the Trees
Rose Soldier: Races, sir?
Rose Soldier: We're... destroying the settlement, sir?
Carat: Kara SuLema, my name is Carat, I do not come to fight. Actually, I don't know what I am doing anymore. I don't know who is right. I don't know who is wrong.
Carat: I am torn, but I had to see you. I had to tell you something you need to know.
Carat: We have imprisoned a woman whose name is Elanee. She was taken captive and is questioned at all hours, as they are trying to break her.
Carat: She cries for one named Ogorek.
Carat: I do not know who he is, but I know what she is. If you know this man, tell him she is alive, for now. Here is where she is kept.
Carat: You have no reason to believe me. I do not blame you for not trusting me. But, recently, I have begun to question everything.
Carat: Maybe in time, once I have sorted everything out in my mind. For now, I must remain torn.
Carat: Perhaps, perhaps we will meet again, under better circumstances.
???: No, no, no no no...
???: This isn't what I signed up for...
Carat: My... my name is Carat.
Carat: When I signed up to join The Rose, I didn't realize this is what I'd be doing...
Carat: I thought... I thought I'd be protecting Greenguard. Like the Guardians! Not burning down villages...
Carat: I know I can't make this right. I just...
Carat: Please let me go. I'll give you anything you want!
Carat: Here, I have the location of where we took the Clawkin. And other prisoners too!
Carat: It's a small facility in the forests outside Swordhaven. I swear, I didn't know The Rose was like this...
Carat: I... I have a family in Swordhaven. I... I can't just leave them behind. Even if you don't believe me...
Carat: This... this isn't what I wanted!
Carat: I hate to interrupt, but we are running out of opportunities, Melissa, before they regroup and come back at us.
Carat: That's the prison.
Carat: <Character>, when we met last, I gave you a tip on how to find the young woman that the Rose took captive, along with the Clawkin.
Carat: She was on her way to this place, with me as her escort. But, I couldn't stomach sending her there.
Carat: The prisoners sent here... they are not treated well at all. The are considered the highest degree of security risk for the Rose.
Carat: If Kara SuLema, Melissa, Niki, or Mritha were ever caught, this is where they would be sent.
Carat: This is the home of the first rebels, and all the most powerful since that original group. I hated it there. I hated what we had to do.
Carat: There is a cell reserved for you, too, <Character>.
Carat: One of Melissa's fairies was imprisoned and greatly injured. Her name was Hemla Yeila. I was told to...
Carat: ... do whatever it took to get her to talk about Melissa's plans and movements.
Carat: I looked at her, and couldn't do it.
Carat: All my misgivings, all my worries and guilt came crashing down.
Carat: I freed her and carried her back to the forest, begging Melissa to take me in, to forgive me. I have so much to do to fix what I have done.
Carat: Possibly, but getting in there is going to be very difficult. They have very high security. We are going to need some help.
