|Values||Sunspears||Order of Shadows||Awakened||Mordant Crescent|
|Values Elona's Future||I risked everything for Elona. Lost friends, my home, my farm... None of the others have risked more.
The Mordant Crescent sold Elona's future to Joko. How could we ever trust them again?
|The Mordant Crescent were always in it for themselves. The future of Elona never crossed their minds.||I have always served Elona. Inside—and outside—of the Mordant Crescent.
We pledged ourselves to Joko for the good of Elona. Sunspears put honor before Elona. Before everything.
|Values Family||My parents and children are worried about me. Soon as this is over, I'm going home.
I risked my life to defend my family. These Awakened gave in to Joko without a fight. I don't understand them.
|Until this mess is sorted out, I can't go back to my family. That's what these idiots are keeping me from.
What do Sunspears care about family? Simply by joining up, they risked everyone they loved.
|Values Legacy||Our work is in the shadows, but if I do well, my name will be whispered down the ages.
The Order of Shadows has worked for decades to leave a legacy of prosperity and stability. What do the Mordant Crescent know about that?
|As long as I had eternal life, I wasn't worried about my legacy. Now...
What does the Order of Shadows know about building a legacy? All they do is destroy what others built.
The Mordant Crescent failed to protect Joko. Joko died as a result. With that legacy, how can we trust them?
|With what I've learned in the Mordant Crescent, it's time to secure my legacy. They'll speak of what I did for Elona for generations.
What would the Awakened know about building for posterity? They're grunts—can't see beyond tomorrow.
|Values Life Well Lived||Every day is training or fighting. I want to sit back, relax, and read a good scroll.
All those Shadows agents know how to do is gossip and backstab. Bet they've never enjoyed one day of their lives.
How could Awakened know how to enjoy life? They're dead!
|Spy work is relentless. I need a beach, a cool breeze, a drink...
The Sunspears were useful in deposing Joko, but now that their mission is over, do they know how to live? Relax? Have normal lives?
Know what you lose with your will when you're Awakened? Knowing how to live well. Watch them. They're no fun.
|Marching, drilling defending, fighting... None of this is living well. Give me a sunny vineyard and some great-great-grandchildren.
Sunspears are as rigid and unrelaxing as their spears. They'll never bend to have fun. How in Joko's name could we work with them?
|Values Mastery||The Sunspears taught me everything I know. You can't find that kind of knowledge anywhere else.
The Mordant Crescent joined Joko because they couldn't take our rigorous training, the lazy slugs.
|I trained for years to acquire these skills. Subterfuge, counterintelligence... No one understands that satisfaction.
The Mordant Crescent are stagnant in their skills. That's how the Sunspears defeated them. I wouldn't trust them to fight well.
Know what hundreds of years of tradition gives you? Stodginess. Sunspears don't know how to learn and grow.
|We were Joko's elite. Trained in every weapon and able to run a bureaucracy. Those sniveling agents couldn't learn what we did.
Sunspears will never understand what it means to learn, train, and grow beneath a higher power.
The Mordant Crescent gave me a way to hone my skills. I wouldn't have learned as much without them.
|Values Order||Shadows agents destabilize governments. Infect the populace with fear. They've got no respect for order.||We spread chaos in the shadows to guarantee order. None of these other groups grasp the idea.
Know what my worst nightmare is? A mob of panicked Awakened. Leaderless, structureless. Imagine it.
|What a disorderly bunch of louts. What we need is order. An army is useless without discipline.
Shadows agents sow chaos and destroy order. Joko's order, specifically. They're irresponsible fools.
|"Free Awakened." Hmph. More like chaotic, or anarchic. They'd do better to have our discipline.
I joined the Mordant Crescent because it was the best choice for maintaining order. It still is.
The Order of Shadows is only good for sowing chaos. For restoring order, they're worse than useless.

Shadows Agent Kito
They're Talking to Each Other Now
Never thought I'd get the squabbling and blaming to stop. But today I heard a Sunspear compliment an Awakened. We've got a chance at holding the Chantry now.
