Dialogue[edit]

Arriving at the manor:

Logan: You take the lead. I've got your back.

Interacting with the door:

Maid: Is someone out there? What do you want?
Talk more option tango.png
By order of the Krytan Seraph, open this door and stand down!
You have no authority over property owned by the ministry. Leave now, or suffer the consequences!
Talk end option tango.png
We carry the authority vested in us by the queen. Come out peaceably—or you'll be carried out on your shields.
Talk more option tango.png
Parcel delivery. I've got a package for Minister Zamon.
Delivery? No one told me anything about a delivery.
Talk end option tango.png
I just need a signature. Open the door, would ya, and I'll be on my way.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm with the Seraph. We're conducting a routine investigation, and we need access to the premesis
[sic]
.
Routine investigation? I don't know...Can you come back after the minister comes home?
Talk end option tango.png
If you don't let us in, we'll arrest you for obstruction. You want that?
Talk more option tango.png
We're with the Seraph.
The Seraph? Here? Is something wrong?
Talk end option tango.png
I need a moment of your time. Can you open the door?
Talk end option tango.png
I'm sorry. I seem to have the wrong address.

After entering:

Ministry Guard: The enemy's here!

Cinematic:

Logan Thackeray: Stay alert, and be swift but thorough. If Zamon is a traitor, we'll find proof of it here
<Character name>: What are we looking for?
Logan Thackeray: Suspicious papers or letters, anything that links him to the bandit attacks. Keep your eyes open and your senses sharp.

At manor:

Logan Thackeray: If you find anything breakable, break it. This dandy needs a few more setbacks in his life.
Logan Thackeray: Look at all this luxury. I bet one of Zamon's salad forks is worth more than my annual salary.

Speaking to the staff:

Maid: Don't hurt me, please! I don't know anything!
Talk end option tango.png
Take it easy. We won't hurt you. This is Seraph business.
Servant: Who let you in here? Where do you think you're going?
Talk end option tango.png
This is a Seraph investigation. Stand aside.
Cook: Seraph, eh? I should've known that Zamon was crooked. He's never at home, and when he is, he's always in a mood. He even yelled at me when his food was cold!
Talk more option tango.png
Do you have any other information about him?
Nope. He keeps to himself mostly, and he never talks to the help.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks anyway.
Talk end option tango.png
Just let us complete our investigation. We'll see what happens.
Maid (back garden): What? Uh, I didn't do anything.
Talk more option tango.png
You're awfully nervous.
Look, I just work here. I keep my head down and do my job. I don't know anything.
Talk end option tango.png
We're investigating Zamon. Stay out of our way.
Talk more option tango.png
Captain Thackeray and I are conducting a formal investigation of this household.
Nothing unusual here, other than the fact that he's got more guards here tonight than usual. I'm not sure why.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information.
Talk end option tango.png
Never mind.
Ministry Guard (back garden): Seraph? Why are you here?
Talk more option tango.png
Stand down. This is a formal investigation.
Right. This is where I'd normally say something about jurisdiction or rank. How about I just pretend I didn't see anything. How's that?
Talk end option tango.png
Good man. You have a nice day.
Talk more option tango.png
You seem pretty busy out here. Why not take a short break and catch your breath?
Um, thanks. Good idea. And we'll just pretend we didn't see you at all, right?
Talk end option tango.png
Right.
Talk more option tango.png
If you want to guard anything bigger than a candy jar again, you'll let us do our job.
Okay, okay. I'll just pretend I didn't hear or see anything.
Talk end option tango.png
You catch on quickly.
Talk more option tango.png
We're just going to take a look around. Stand aside.
I'll just pretend this isn't happening.
Talk end option tango.png
Good idea.
Talk end option tango.png
That's not your concern.

Searching the manor and collecting evidence, at the Pedestal:

Servant: All these fragile things make me afraid to turn around.
Servant: Hey, look at this fancy cup. Think it makes wine taste better?
Servant: Don't move! With our luck you'll break something, then the boss'll break us both.
Logan Thackeray: I know this chalice. I was there when Queen Jennah awarded it to the Corone family. It has historical, financial, and sentimental value.
Logan Thackeray: And it just so happens the Corones were robbed recently. How lucky that Zamon "found" their heirloom.

At the Dresser:

Servant: Why are we even watching this place? This is the only house the thieves aren't going to ransack.
Servant: We're paid to pretend. Do your job and act like you're guarding something.
Servant: I've got a better idea. I'm taking a nap. Wake me when it's your turn.
Logan Thackeray: Here's a letter from Lady Madeline, Zamon's sister. She demands that he stop leaving packages at their mother's house for unsavory types to collect.
Logan Thackeray: She says if he doesn't stop trafficking with lowlifes, she's going to bar him from the premises and inform the Seraph.
Logan Thackeray: This is perfect. I'll send one of my Seraph around to call her to trial. She'll have to testify, or I'll have her charged with obstructing justice.

At Zamon's Desk:

Servant: What does he want us to burn?
Servant: The blueprints, genius. Weren't you paying attention?
Servant: Why bother? You always fill me in.
Logan Thackeray: Melandru's tears—these are the blueprints of all the homes that have been robbed in your district. It looks like Zamon planned the burglaries.

Speaking with Logan:

Logan Thackeray: We've got three pieces of evidence: the stolen Corone chalice, a letter detailing his connections to the black market, and blueprints of all the robbed houses.
Talk more option tango.png
Do you think we have enough evidence to convict Zamon?
Krytan law requires three pieces of evidence to even bring an accusation against a minister. I wish we had more...but yes, it's enough.
Talk end option tango.png
I guess that's the best we can do. Let's go.
Talk more option tango.png
I'm worried, Logan. This guy's slippery. No matter what we say, he'll find a way out of the conviction.
We've got the evidence, and we've got Zamon in custody. If he gets away, it'll be because he's got allies in the ministry. We've done all we can.
Talk end option tango.png
I guess that's the best we can do. Let's go.
Talk end option tango.png
I guess that's the best we can do. Let's go.

Leaving the manor:

Logan Thackeray: Zamon's here. Now I can arrest him for his part in this, and he can rot in prison.
<Character name>: Wait. Treating him like a common criminal only creates more problems-political problems. We have to do this formally. By the book.
Logan Thackeray: You sound like Anise... but you're right. We issue a subpoena and warn the gate guards. If he tries to run, we'll bring him in.
Minister Zamon: What's going on here? What are you doing in my house?
Logan Thackeray: As Captain of the Seraph in the service of Her Royal Majesty, Queen Jennah, I call you to trial.
Minister Zamon: What? This is outrageous! On what charge?
Logan Thackeray: Treason against the crown and citizens of Divinity's Reach. Pray for Kormir's mercy, Zamon. You're going to need all the help you can get.

Speaking with NPCs:

Minister Zamon: I will respect the authority of the Seraph and attend this sham trial of yours, but you will regret it. Until then, kindly get out of my house. At once!
Talk end option tango.png
You'll answer for your crimes soon enough, Minister.
Eitel the Unlovable: I don't get paid to talk. I get paid to hit, chop, and stab.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm glad you found your niche.
Logan Thackeray: I'll keep an eye on the good minister here. You can go. I'll see you and Anise at the trial.
Talk end option tango.png
See you there.

My story[edit]

Search the Premises.jpg

Captain Thackeray and I searched Zamon's chalice, floor plans of ransacked properties, and an interesting letter from Zamon's sister, Lady Madeline, that hints at his suspicious activities. Zamon returned from the party as we were leaving, and Thackeray called him to trial right then and there, making our accusations both public and official.
