Jhavi Jorasdottir: Commander! Thanks for coming. We've been setting up barricades where we can, but we're short on people.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Destroyers are focused on the fields ahead. If they take them, it's a straight shot to Lion's Arch. That can't happen.
Marjory Delaqua: I'm farther ahead, Commander—at the Ascalonian Settlement.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Marjory, I told you to fall back and regroup near the gates.
Marjory Delaqua: And I told you, that won't happen. I won't abandon these people because their livelihoods are strategically inconvenient.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: No time to argue. Commander, help us clear the fields and get the survivors to safety.
Marjory Delaqua: These destroyers keep coming, we're going to need some more help. Just putting that out there.
After Defend Cornucopian Fields and the entrance to Lion's Arch from destroyers.
Marjory Delaqua: Oh, gods. Destroyers on the move! They're swarming the Ascalonian Settlement! Where are those reinforcements?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Fall back to Lion's Arch! You know we can't save everyone.
Marjory Delaqua: These settlers lost everything once already, Jhavi. This isn't what I signed up for. And neither did you.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Aaah—DAMMIT. Vigil, reinforce the settlement! Move it!
One of the following:
Marjory Delaqua: The norn! They're here! Those shapeshifters can help us deal with the destroyers!
Marjory Delaqua: It's the Seraph! Now we can push back those destroyers!
When Jhavi arrives at Ascalonian Settlement
Jhavi Jorasdottir: We need to cut off those destroyer tunnels! Don't give them a chance to regroup!
After 3/5 destroyer waves defeated
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Tide's starting to turn!
Marjory Delaqua: Why don't you try telling them that?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: You know, I would, but I don't think Tyrian's their first language.
After 5/5 destroyer waves defeated
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Whoa—giant destroyer on the field! Looks like we got their attention!
Marjory Delaqua: Could use some help over here with the big guy!
When the Destroyer of the Great Bridge is at 40%
Marjory Delaqua: More destroyers popping up! Watch your feet and stay on the move!
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Destroyer reinforcements! Don't let 'em get the drop on you!
After the Destroyer of the Great Bridge is dead
Jhavi Jorasdottir: I think that was the last one. Drove 'em back for now.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Next time I give you an order, Jory, I need you to follow it. If we want to beat Primordus
Marjory Delaqua: We aren't just fighting Primordus. When we win, we need to be able to live with the decisions we made.
Marjory Delaqua: If we abandon the weak, what's that say about the world we're fighting for? What's even the point?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: And if we all die fighting, those ideals won't matter. There's a line. We need to be on the right side of it.
<Character name>: And today we were. Primordus tried to surprise us. He failed. Good work, all of you.
Marjory Delaqua: You too, Commander. And thanks.
Optionally talking to Jhavi
Jhavi Jorasdottir: I swear by Raven's eyes, if Jory doesn't listen the next time I give an order...
Talk more option tango.png She has a good point, I think.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: You know as much as any of us about the calculus of war. You can't always save everyone.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: And if Jory keeps trying, she's gonna get herself killed.
Talk more option tango.png Why do you think the destroyers targeted this settlement?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: I assumed it was to draw us away from the gates of Lion's Arch. But that doesn't make any sense.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: They tried hitting those first, to draw us away from the settlement. Jory was the only one who saw it.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Maybe Primordus just thrives on chaos. A settlement of defenseless villagers would be a prime target.
Talk more option tango.png How are things holding up with the Vigil?
Jhavi Jorasdottir: After Drakkar, I needed to get away from the Marches. I went on a tour of Vigil encampments around Tyria.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Mostly a morale thing. I figured Laranthir would've come back by now. He hasn't.
Jhavi Jorasdottir: Never thought I'd be in charge for this long. But the days keep passing and here I am. So I'm getting used to it.
Talk end option tango.png The Vigil's lucky to have you leading them. Take care.
Optionally talking to Marjory
Marjory Delaqua: Thanks for coming, Commander. That nearly got out of hand.
Talk more option tango.png Why would Primordus target here instead of Lion's Arch?
Marjory Delaqua: You don't have to be a killer Krytan sleuth to see this settlement is a more attractive target than Lion's Arch.
Marjory Delaqua: Primordus causes destruction. It's his MO. No better way to do that than set fire to the most vulnerable.
Talk more option tango.png What were you doing in the area?
Marjory Delaqua: Taimi sent word this was a possible emergence point for Primordus's goons. We just got lucky this time.
Marjory Delaqua: Well, not "lucky," but, you know.
Talk more option tango.png How's Kas?
Marjory Delaqua: Let's not do that right now, okay?
Marjory Delaqua: I mean, she's fine. We're fine.
Marjory Delaqua: Fine.
Talk end option tango.png You did great work here. Thank you.
