Dialogue[edit]

Upon entering
Kasmeer Meade: Lace curtains here, linen tablecloths there. And a sign out front that says, "Delaqua Investigations," or—
Marjory Delaqua: Stop. No curtains, no tablecloth, and most of all, no sign.
Kasmeer Meade: But—
Marjory Delaqua: No.
Kasmeer Meade: But—
Marjory Delaqua: Okay, maybe curtains, but only if they're black.
Kasmeer Meade: (sigh) I can see you're tired and cranky. We'll talk about it some other time.
Marjory Delaqua: You're a sight for sore eyes.
Speaking with Kasmeer Meade first (before Marjory)
How are you? You look like you have news?
Talk ls option tango.png
I just saw the probe in Lion's Arch change color. To green.
I find it distressing that a probe has changed color—especially one in Lion's Arch. We need to find out if any others turned on as well.
(as below)
Speaking with Marjory Delaqua
I'm glad you came to see us.
Talk ls option tango.png
Yes, I hurried here as soon as I saw the probe near Lion's Arch turn green.
Hmm. Now I'm worried, too. Why did it turn green?
Talk ls option tango.png
Probably because it found what it was looking for.
So what's the plan?
Talk ls option tango.png
Let's do some sleuthing, Miss Detective. Gather everything you know about Scarlet.
Can do. I have contacts in the Durmand Priory. I'll call in a few favors and get them to send me some of the evidence they've gathered. I'll contact you when it arrives.
(if a member of Durmand Priory)
Talk ls option tango.png
I'm a member myself. Mention my name. They may come more quickly.
Oh, perfect. That may give me just the leverage I need. I'll definitely do that. Thank you. That may even speed things up a bit. I'll be in touch.
Talk end option tango.png
Great. In the meantime, I'll track down Braham and talk to Councillor Kiel.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds good. I'm off to find Braham and talk to Councillor Kiel.
Talk end option tango.png
Later.
Speaking with Kasmeer Meade
I find it distressing that a probe has changed color—especially one in Lion's Arch. We need to find out if any others turned on as well.
Talk ls option tango.png
Ask around. See if anyone else has seen one.
I will. And Jory will too. She's always happiest when she's investigating. You're going to let Braham know what's happened?
Talk ls option tango.png
Yes. We can all meet back here once the evidence arrives.
Jory's contacts in the Durmand Priory will come through soon, I'm sure. We'll contact you when it's here.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks. In the meantime, I'll find Braham and talk to Councillor Kiel.
Talk end option tango.png
Yeah. I think I know where to find him.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll be back.
Afterwards
Kasmeer Meade: Rox! Come in. Join us, please.
Marjory Delaqua: You should hear what happened.
Speaking with Rox
What's Marjory talking about? Where've you been?
Talk ls option tango.png
Investigating Scarlet. I saw the Lion's Arch probe turn green.
I don't like the sound of that.
Talk ls option tango.png
Me either. She already attacked Lion's Arch once.
I was there. She and her Aetherblades left a lot of dead citizens that day.
Talk ls option tango.png
We can't let her do it again.
You're in charge. We've got your back. What's the plan?
Talk ls option tango.png
First things first. Have you seen Braham?
Last I heard he was hot on the trail of that asuran cub Taimi. She apparently went through a portal to the Mists, chasing Mai Trin. Should we brief him?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll go now, while we're waiting for the evidence to arrive.
Afterwards
Marjory Delaqua: Long time no see.
Rox: So how did you two meet?
Marjory Delaqua: About six months ago, I was just minding my own business and...
Kasmeer Meade: She'd posted a "Help Wanted" sign. And I was looking for help.
Rox: So you met only six months ago? It seems like you've been together longer.
Marjory Delaqua: I'd noticed her before that—around the city.
Kasmeer Meade: You had? You never told me that.
Rox: So...you're a mated pair?
Kasmeer Meade: (laugh)
Marjory Delaqua: (chuckle) We're currently in negotiations.
Rox: C'mere, Frostbite.
Kasmeer Meade: What about you, Rox? Anyone special in your life?
Rox: No. There was once, but he was killed.
Kasmeer Meade: I'm sorry. Was he in your old warband? Braham said you're a gladium.
Rox: Braham talks too much.
Kasmeer Meade: Don't be mad. We're your friends.
Marjory Delaqua: Yeah, what are friends for, if not for sticking our noses in each other's business?
Speaking with Rox once more
You should rest awhile before you head out again. Eat, drink. Recharge.
Talk more option tango.png
Good call. Say, I wanted to ask: How did your...mate die?
In a mine cave-in, with the rest of my warband. His name was Nonus Pickflea...I mean Nonus Pickaxe. Pickflea was his nickname. We teased him. We'd been best friends since the fahrar.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm so sorry.
We were the Pick warband, best miners in the region. We could turn out more ore in a day than any other warband.
Talk more option tango.png
Was it hard for you, left alone like that?
They were my family. I still miss them...every last one.
Talk end option tango.png
I understand.
