Dialogue[edit]

When entering, Kasmeer is pacing (doesn't show in chat log):

Kasmeer Meade: I can't believe she just sauntered into Divintiy's Reach like that.
Kasmeer Meade: Our poor queen. She must be beside herself. Our city, violated.
Kasmeer Meade: This is our home. Are we not even safe here?

A few moments later:

Marjory Delaqua: Kas. Darlin', why don't you sit down. You're makin' my head spin.
Kasmeer Meade: Sit? Are you kidding? How can I sit? We have to do something.
Marjory Delaqua: What do you suggest we do?
Kasmeer Meade: Find Scarlet. Someone in this city knows something. We should talk to people. I'll know if they're lying.
Marjory Delaqua: Hm. You better be careful. People will start thinking that pretty head of yours isn't just for decoration.
Rox:Hey, bartender. What do you got on the menu's that's still mooing?
Bartender: Closest thing is a mug of milk. Fresh as of this morning.
Rox: My friend and I'll take one each.
Marjory Delaqua: How long you in town for?
Rox:Not much longer.
Braham Eirsson: She's on leave, so we're exploring the city. But, she has to get back soon. She's trying out for Rytlock Brimstone's warband.
Rox: Braham!
Braham Eirsson: What?
Kasmeer Meade: THE Rytlock Brimstone? That's amazing. So, you've met him? What's he like?
Rox: He's the kind of warrior who'd kill you for talking about his personal business.
Kasmeer Meade: Oh. Forget I asked.
Marjory Delaqua: Our mystery man has been in touch.
Kasmeer Meade: You mean E? What'd he want?
Marjory Delaqua: To warn us, it seems. He says there's a war coming to our doorsteps, a war for all of Tyria.
Kasmeer Meade: I don't suppose he could be any more mysterious, could he?
Marjory Delaqua: I agree. I don't think he was trying hard enough.

Talking to allies:

Kasmeer Meade: Why hasn't anyone captured Scarlet yet? She's a sylvari. She can't be that smart. Can she? Oh, sorry. Happy Wintersday, by the way.
If sylvari:

I beg your pardon!
Oh, I didn't mean to offend you. It's just that...you're all so young. And sweet. And...
Talk more option tango.png
You've led a sheltered life, haven't you?
I suppose. Though I helped fight the Toxic Alliance in Kessex Hills. Say, I heard Scarlet had a vision of the the entire universe—whatever that means. An asura had a device he put her in.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm not surprised. The asura were the first to experiment on our first generations.
Really? Oh, how awful. I'm so sorry to hear that. I suppose it's not surprising. The asura can be quite...clinical. Perhaps they accidentally broke her?
Talk end option tango.png
I think that's likely.
Talk end option tango.png
Good to know.
Talk end option tango.png
Good to know.
Otherwise:
Talk more option tango.png
And to you. We know very little about sylvari.
I guess I thought they were all goofy, childlike beings. I mean, their race is only twenty-five years old, right?
Talk more option tango.png
And they're plants.
They say she had a vision, a vision of the entire universe—whatever that means. An asura was experimenting on her—or training her, I can't remember which—and put her in some device.
(If asura)
Talk end option tango.png
Asuran devices can work extreme magic.
(Otherwise)
Talk end option tango.png
Trusted an asuran prototype? Then she can't be all that bright.
Talk end option tango.png
Good to know.
Talk end option tango.png
Happy Wintersday.
Marjory Delaqua: Kasmeer's all fired up about Scarlet. Truth is, we both think we need to do something about her. Further investigation. Have you heard of Beigarth?
(If norn)
Talk more option tango.png
There's a Beigarth in Hoelbrak.
That's the one. He apparently trained Scarlet for a while. One of us should go find out what he knows.
Talk more option tango.png
You mentioned E. What do you know? (Same as below)
Talk end option tango.png
I agree.
(Otherwise)
Talk more option tango.png
Beigarth who?
Some norn who lives in Hoelbrak. Apparently, he trained Scarlet for a while. I'm guessing he has some information on her. Someone should go talk to him.
Talk more option tango.png
You mentioned E. What do you know?
Not enough. We call him a "he," but we don't know if that's true. All we know is that he knows a lot. So he must be fairly well connected. He hasn't been wrong yet.
Talk more option tango.png
He contacts you often?
Often enough. Usually with some tip about wrongdoings that need righted. You?
Talk end option tango.png
Yeah. Me too.
Talk end option tango.png
I see.
Talk end option tango.png
I agree.
Rox: This Wintersday stuff isn't half bad. Are you doing okay?
Talk more option tango.png
Yeah. Good to see you again.
Same here. We've been talking about Scarlet, even though I should have reported in to Rytlock by now. Fortunately, he's been dealing with Legion business and doesn't have time.
(If charr)
Talk more option tango.png
When he calls, you'd better answer.
He knows I'm here and that I helped kill the dragon lieutenant they call Tequatl, so he'll summon me. I just hope it's soon. That Tequatl tail is stinkier than Braham after a battle.
Talk end option tango.png
Ah, I thought that smell was your norn friend.
Talk end option tango.png
Okay.
(Otherwise)
Talk more option tango.png
Why do you have to report in?
He's currently my superior. I report to him. It's just that simple.
Talk more option tango.png
I see.
No, really. That's how the legions work. I report to my superior. They're my team. I...report to them.
Talk end option tango.png
Got it.
Talk end option tango.png
Okay.
Talk end option tango.png
Okay.
Talk more option tango.png
Not really. Times are tough. (Same as "Yeah. Good to see you again.")
Braham Eirsson: Hye again. Glad you could make it. Wintersday is my favorite time of year, though it makes me miss the snow. I'm introducing Rox to how we celebrate the holiday.
Talk more option tango.png
Rox seems cranky.
Yeah. She's itchy to get back to her papa bear Brimstone. Hmph.
Talk more option tango.png
You don't like Brimstone?
I don't like that she's got chains holder her back. She jumps at his every word.
Talk more option tango.png
That's the charr way.
Well, it ain't the norn way.
Talk end option tango.png
Obviously.
Talk end option tango.png
I see.
Talk end option tango.png
I see.
Talk end option tango.png
Sounds fun.
