During Flame and Frost: Retribution

At the Victory Bonfire of Might and Main
A hardy fellow force for good! What a treat to see you. Sit, enjoy the fire, and let's savor our victory!
Talk more option tango.png What news have you?
The Molten Alliance has been confronted with cold reality. The Vigil is keeping an eye out for more of those weapon facilities, but they don't expect to see any. Me, I learned how bittersweet victory can be.
Talk end option tango.png That's a tough lesson to learn.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks. Maybe I will.

During The Secret of Southsun

At Cragstead
Well, if it isn't my friend <Character name>. I'm happy to see you. Look around! We've done some work on rebuilding Cragstead.
Talk more option tango.png I see that. How are you?
Great. I've been helping Yngvi. We've got new folks moving in, too, refugees from all around. And did I tell you I found Ottilia?
Talk more option tango.png That's good.
Very good. We found each other in Hoelbrak after the fighting had ended. We traveled back to Cragstead together.
Talk more option tango.png Have you seen your mother?
She sent a message saying she'd like to see me, but I don't see the point. Why now, after all these years? Has she gotten tired of fighting dragons? I doubt it.
Talk more option tango.png Maybe she wants you to fight them with her?
Maybe, but I have to fight my own fights. I can't fight hers. She left to fight them, and she can have them!
Talk end option tango.png I understand.
Talk end option tango.png Me, too.
Talk end option tango.png Nicely done.
Talk end option tango.png Excellent.
Talk end option tango.png So I see. Be well, my friend.
Braham: Ottilia, how are you? Are you glad to be home?
Ottilia: I suppose. I'm glad you're here too.
Braham: Ummm...that's good. I'm glad you're here, too. I mean...
Ottilia: (laugh) You're adorable. I have to go help my father. See you later.

During Dragon Bash

At Cragstead

My day just went from bad to worse. It's time to rethink my future.
Talk end option tango.png You don't need her.
Ottilia: I thought know...we could go on a hunt together or something.
Braham: Uh...yeah, sure. So...what do you want to hunt? Jotun? Svanir?
Ottilia: Ooh, I know! I'd just love to have a new rabbit-fur vest. We could hunt rabbits!
Braham: Rabbits?
Ottilia: This'll be so much fun. I'll be ready at dawn tomorrow. See you then!

During Bazaar of the Four Winds

At Cragstead
Braham: I thought maybe, if you want, we could go to Wolf's shrine together today.
Ottilia: No, thanks. I went earlier and took all my gifts for Wolf then.
Braham: Well, maybe we could eat together this evening? The weather is fair.
Ottilia: I don't think so. I'm going with Ebbe. He's a merchant, and he sells furs in all the cities. What do you do?
Braham: I...what?
Ottilia: Exactly. Enjoy growing old in Cragstead like all the others. I'll send news of my travels. Promise!

During Queen's Jubilee

Speaking to Braham inside the Crown Pavilion (only if the character has helped Braham during Flame and Frost)
Hey there. Name's Braham. I'm here with Rox.
Talk end option tango.png I'm <Character name>. Good to meet you.
  • Bug: Braham did not recognize characters who helped him during Flame and Frost.

During A Very Merry Wintersday (2013)

At Thunder Ridge Camp
How about that Scarlet, huh? I'd love to get my hands around her neck. I'm sick of running after her like a puppy after a squirrel. We need a plan.
Talk more option tango.png You're right. We need to get the upper hand.
To track your prey, you need to first understand how it thinks. We need to learn more about her.
Talk more option tango.png What do you know about Scarlet?
I know she's real smart. She studied with plenty powerful magic users of all types. But, I also know she's real crazy. I heard a rumor she killed her last mentor.
Talk end option tango.png I see.
Talk end option tango.png You may be right.
Talk end option tango.png I'd better get to it, then.

During The Edge of the Mists

Ambient Scenes
Taimi: Braham, will you tell me a story while we wait?
Braham Eirsson: After you ran off on me? And all the abuse you heaped on me since we got here? I get plenty of that back in Cragstead.
Taimi: You don't spend much time around asura, do you? We only abuse people we like. Or those we're trying to improve.
Braham Eirsson: Fine. I'll assume you like me. Ahem! "One upon a time, there was a brave and handsome norn named Braham...
Taimi: Aww, I've heared this one already. From you. Twice.
Taimi: Did you know Scarlet attended each of the three colleges? And that she worked with the Inquest? Ooh, and that she-
Braham Eirsson: If you believe the rumours. I talked with an asura named Vorpp, and he says it was all bunk. I'm inclined to agree.
Taimi: I know what Vorpp says, but her twisted creatures weren't bunk. The holo-pirates either. Some asura are just jealous.
Braham Eirsson: That's enough about Scarlet for now. Jormag's tooth, you really need a new hero.
Taimi: Well, do something heroic enough and I might change my mind.
Taimi: Braham? Are we still going to be friends when we get back?
Braham Eirsson: Wait- are we friends now?
Taimi: I think so. You don't boss me around as much as other adults. And when you ask a question, you let me answer it.
Braham Eirsson: Well, I'm friends with Frostbite and he can't even talk. So yes, Tiny. We'll still be friends.
Taimi: Not if you keep calling me "Tiny".
Braham Eirsson: What's your story anyway, Tiny? How does a little thing like you get into such big trouble?
Taimi: It's Taimi. And I'm a progeny prodigy. I've got important people fighting for the right to be my teacher.
Braham Eirsson: Important people huh? Are they real people, or just big eared figments of your overactive imagination?
Taimi: They're real, but they all want to tell me what to learn. I'd rather be like Scarlet and pick my own courses.
Braham Eirsson: Wolf's tail, girl! Don't be too much like Scarlet, okay? One's way too many.
Braham Eirsson: Tell me more about the probes you examined.
Taimi: They're well designed. They emit pulsed eldritch waves that register the strength of all local ambient magic.
Braham Eirsson: Like the way bats hunt? They let out a chirp and react to what that chirp bounces off of.
Taimi: Right again! I'm clearly a good influence on you.
Braham Eirsson: What do you think those probes of Scarlet's are looking for?
Taimi: Best guess? Um...The transcendent magic channels that span the globe. Old-fashioned synergetics texts call them ley lines.
Taimi: Normally you can't see them or touch them, but they're real. Magic finds its own path, like rivers running to the sea.
Taimi: The probes are trying to identify the biggest and strongest of these ley lines. But I'm not sure why. Not yet.
Taimi: So those goons I saw breaking Mai out of jail were Scarlet's, right? They did an impressive amount of damage.
Braham Eirsson: Surprised to find you sitting still, short-pants. The way you took off, I figured you'd be halfway to Mount Maelstrom by now.
Taimi: Scruffy —my golem— broke down. And I still learned more in the short time I've been here than you have your whole life.
Taimi: Mai Trin's breakout cleared my way here. I should say thanks to the Lionguard who let her escape.
Braham Eirsson: What happened? Why did your silly magical machine man stop working?
Taimi: I was studying that strange device, but every time I got too close, it zapped me and knocked me back.
Taimi: Eventually, Scruffy's power cells shorted out and pieces of him fell off. That activated his emergency mode.
Taimi: So he followed protocol like he's supposed to: he carried me here, spit me out, and then powered down.
Taimi: And you've got a lot of nerve calling Scruffy "silly" with those clothes and that haircut.
Braham Eirsson: So your golem's dead. Why don't you just walk out of here?
Taimi: Same reason you don't fly out: because I can't. My ears, how thick are you?
Taimi: See these legs? They don't work right. I can't walk very far unassisted.
Braham Eirsson: Uh...I uh...sorry. I didn't know!
Braham Eirsson: So, will...what was your golem's name again?
Taimi: Scruffy.
Braham Eirsson: Will Scruffy work again if you get the stuff you need? I'd get it for you, but I can't leave you unprotected.
Taimi: You're sweet. And absolutely. I built him for maximum ease of maintenance. All he needs are some replacement parts.
Taimi: He may be rough around the edges, but when he's whole, Scruffy is as reliable as an entropic crystal regulator.
Braham Eirsson: Ah. That's good, then. Right?
Braham Eirsson: Okay, truth time: Why did you run away from me? Why did you come here in the first place?
Taimi: It's not personal. I just wanted to see Scarlet's handiwork up close. Her marionette was amazing. Inspiring.
Taimi: When I saw her minions running through a portal, I followed them.
Braham Eirsson: You were supposed to stay with me. I told you to stop.
Taimi: Zojja tells me to do stuff all the time. So does Vorpp. I don't listen to them, either.
Braham Eirsson: What'd you learn about you were studying before your golem broke?
Taimi: As if you'd understand. All right, I've got nothing but time, so let's give it a go.
Taimi: They appear to be survey probes for the purpose of identifying high-energy thaumic channels and matrices.
Braham Eirsson: So it's like magical energy is a swirling storm and these things are mapping it.
Taimi: A trifle simplistic, but yes, that's exactly the case.
Braham Eirsson: I have to check back in at the Lion's Arch jail. I wanted to help stop Mai's breakout, but I had to stick with Taimi.
Braham Eirsson: I've got to bring Rox and Frostbite here. Jory and Kas can come if they want, but Rox? Definitely.
Braham Eirsson: I'm honor-bound to protect Taimi, so if anyone cares to kick a few Aetherblades' teeth in for me, I'd appreciate it.
Braham Eirsson: Look at this place. As soon as I get Taimi to safety, I'm coming back here to bash some heads. Kuh-bam!
Braham Eirsson: Remind me to wring Mai Trin's neck for escaping. If she hadn't, Taimi would have never given me the slip.
Braham Eirsson: Listen, Taimi, if I see Scarlet, I'm going to scoop you up with one hand and beat her bloody with the other, okay?
Before collecting Scruffy's parts
Glad to see a friendly face, <Character name>. I'm stuck here minding this asura kid, so I appreciate the company. If you want to go exploring, though, I'd understand.
Talk ls option tango.png I've got news from Lion's Arch. Scarlet's probe has changed color.
I don't like the sound of that. It means Scarlet's machines are doing something, and that something is never good. Taimi was investigating the probes around here. She might have info you can use.
Talk more option tango.png Do you mind if I ask you a few questions?
Not at all. It'll help pass the time. What's on your mind?
Talk more option tango.png How did you get here?
When Mai Trin busted out of jail, Taimi followed her here. I was supposed to get the little troublemake home safe, so I had to follow. It seemed so simple, but nothing with this kid ever is.
Talk more option tango.png Why did she follow an Aetherblade captain into the Mists?
Ahh, she's got a thing for Scarlet's machines. I think Taimi can't decide if she wants to be like Scarlet or if she wants to beat the sylvari at her own game. It could be both.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question, if you're not too busy.
Talk end option tango.png That's all I need to know right now. Thanks.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question, if you're not too busy.
Talk end option tango.png That's all I need to know right now. Thanks.
Talk more option tango.png Where are your friends? Rox and Marjory and Kasmeer?
Not sure, but I'm looking forwards to finding them at the Dead End bar when this is all over. I need a drink and I like the stories Jory tells. She's got a voice some skaalds would kill for.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question, if you're not too busy.
Talk end option tango.png That's all I need to know right now. Thanks.
Talk more option tango.png How is your mom?
What? Listen, friend, the less you talk about Eir Stegalkin, the better we'll get along.
Talk more option tango.png Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you.
Apology accepted. Just stay away from that subject around me, or I'll show you what "kuh-bam" means, up close and personal.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question, if you're not too busy.
Talk end option tango.png Understood. And again, sorry.
Talk back option tango.png I have another question, if you're not too busy.
Talk end option tango.png That's all I need to know right now. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png That's all I need to know right now. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the tip.
Talk end option tango.png Good idea. I think I'll take a look around and check in with you later.
After collecting Scruffy's parts
Glad to see you again, <Character name>. I'm dying to get back into the action with Rox and the others, but I'm stuck minding Taimi here until she fixes her golem. She'll tell you all about it if you let her.
Talk more option tango.png Do you mind if I ask you a few questions? (Same as in above dialogue)
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for the tip.

During Escape from Lion's Arch

I figured I'd see you up here fighting these Aether-dregs. This situation is so serious, though, I'm almost not having any fun taking them down. How is one squeaky little turnip pulling all this off? And why?
Talk more option tango.png She's been working toward this for over a year.
That's a long time. I wish we could have predicted this back when we were fighting the Molten Alliance—back in those early days. I'd have hunted her down and pulled her out like the weed she is.
Talk more option tango.png We all wish that. She's gotten extremely powerful.
I understand how she burgled and bluffed these alliances together, but I don't get why. What could she possibly want?
Talk more option tango.png The answer to that lies with the green probe.
Yeah, Taimi thinks she's mapping ley lines so she can tap them for their energy.
Talk more option tango.png Where is your little buddy?
She's not MY buddy. But, she was heading toward the camp outside the Vigil fort to annoy the refugees there. If we're lucky, they'll toss her off a mountain.
Talk more option tango.png You don't mean that.
(laugh) No. I don't guess I do.
Talk end option tango.png Uh-huh. That's what I thought.
Talk more option tango.png Anyone spotted Scarlet yet?
I don't think so. She can't be far away though. Her alliances are obviously securing the city so she can drill at the probe site.
Talk end option tango.png Good to know.
Talk end option tango.png Later.
At Cornucopian Fields
Rox: Aaargh! Could that have been any worse?
Braham Eirsson: We saved some, but how many people are still in there? (huff) I'm going to break Scarlet in half.
Rox: Hold on to that thought. It won't be long before we get another chance to go back in.
Braham Eirsson: Next time, we save as many as we can. I'm not stopping until they have to carry me out.
Rox: Rawr!
Braham Eirsson: Why you so jumpy?
Rox: Can't you hear those explosions?
Braham Eirsson: Well, if we don't get blown up, then the miasma will probably kill us.
Rox: Or the clockworks.
Braham Eirsson: Or those thrice-damned Aetherblades.
Rox: And don't forget the krait.
Braham Eirsson: I'm already hearing the song they'll sing about us.
Braham Eirsson: I wonder if Marjory and Kasmeer are still in one piece. They aren't as battle hardened as we are.
Rox: They'll be fine. Marjory's got a keen eye for trouble, and Kasmeer can hold her own with illusions, surprisingly.
Braham Eirsson: That won't help them if they're too busy making lovey eyes at each other.
Rox: Hey. I remember not so long ago when you were in love too.
Braham Eirsson: Yeah, and I regret every minute of it.
Rox: (chuckle) Rejection is a bitter pill, hmm?
Braham Eirsson: Hmph.
Braham Eirsson: Is it time yet?
Rox: No, Braham. Be patient. We can't go in too soon. The miasma has to dissipate first.
Braham Eirsson: How come Marjory's antidote isn't working anymore?
Rox: Seems Scarlet improved her recipe. She's an impressive alchemist.
Braham Eirsson: Is there anything she doesn't do well?
Rox: Make friends?
Braham Eirsson: Good point.
Rox: It's almost that time. You ready, Braham?
Braham Eirsson: Ready to kill some bad guys and save some innocents? Do you even have to ask?
Rox: (chuckle) I just like to hear you say it.
Braham Eirsson: I'm ready!
At Trader's Forum in Lion's Arch (Under Attack!)
Rox: They picked on the wrong city.
Braham Eirsson: Ummm, this looks like a full-on invasion to me.
Rox: I think you're right. They're killing anyone who hasn't evacuated yet. We have to get noncombatants out of here.
Braham Eirsson: Aetherblades. Hmph.
Rox: Hopefully the Canal Ward gate to Gendarran Fields is still open. Citizens can flee that way.
Braham Eirsson: I'm not fleeing. I'm fighting.
Rox: Fair enough. Then I am too.

When approaching Braham

Braham Eirsson: Hey, friend. I've got your back.

During Battle for Lion's Arch

At Trader's Forum in Lion's Arch (Enemy Controlled)
Braham Eirsson: I don't even like cities, but I'm not letting her have this one.
Rox: As usual, we're thinking the same thing, my hairless friend.
Braham Eirsson: Hairless friend? Seriously?
Rox: What?
Braham Eirsson: This has got to be the worst scrap you've ever been in, right, Rox?
Rox: Hard to imagine a worse one than this.
Braham Eirsson: I can imagine one. Scarlet would be riding a clockwork dragon and...
Rox: Have you eaten recently? You're getting loopy.
Braham Eirsson: Now that you mention it, I am kinda hungry.
Rox: We need to talk about me going into the warband, you know?
Braham Eirsson: What's there to talk about? You'll go, and the rest of us will make a guild without you. No big deal.
Rox: Without me?
Braham Eirsson: Well, you can't be in the warband and in our guild. You chose the warband, so...I'll miss you, but...
Rox: Okay. I guess that's how it's got to be.
Braham Eirsson: I guess so.
Rox: Hmmph!
Braham Eirsson: Hmmmpf!
Rox: You don't have to sound so...okay with it.
Braham Eirsson: What am I supposed to do? Tie you up and force you to stay?
Rox: No. Just sound like you mean it when you say you'll miss me.
Braham Eirsson: If you can't hear it, then you're not listening.
Rox: Look, having a warband makes me respectable in the eyes of my fellow soldiers. Did you know that some charr spit on gladium?
Braham Eirsson: What? Why?
Rox: Not everyone, but some soldiers believe that a warband's sole survivor must have lost her nerve and let the warband down.
Braham Eirsson: So, they'd rather you died along with everyone else?
Rox: Yes, that would have been the honorable outcome.
Braham Eirsson: Oh. And...have you been spit on?
Rox: In more ways than one.
Braham Eirsson: Well, if I ever see anyone do that to you, I'll-
Rox: (laugh) Thank you, Braham. For being my friend.
Before completing Scarlet's End
After completing Scarlet's End
You look better than I feel.
Talk more option tango.png What are you doing?
I'm building my legend! And helping the folks who live here.
Talk more option tango.png On a broken leg?
Look, I can't slink away like some injured animal. I was no help in the Scarlet fight. I can do some good here. My leg will heal, eventually. Right now, it's the least of our worries.
Talk end option tango.png Just be careful or you'll end up lame.
Talk end option tango.png Hang in there.
