The Edge of the Mists

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. Jormags 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: Wolfs 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 it's 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 those...um...things 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.

Before collecting Scruffy's Parts

Felicitations, <Character name>. Scruffy here got kicked around by the probes' defensive capabilities and I need to replace a few parts. Braham can't go because he's watching over me. Can you help?
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me more.
I learned the hard way that you can't get too close to Scarlet's probes without getting zapped. Scruffy lost some crucial components in the process, but he managed to get me here before he shut down.
Talk more option tango.png
What can I do?
I can't collect the parts myself, and Braham here won't leave me unprotected. If you find any of Scruffy's parts, bring them to me and I'll do the rest.
Talk ls option tango.png
No worries. I'm here for you.
You're the best. The probes were in a chamber below the central island. Look for the bridge that goes under the island. And again, thanks very much!
Talk more option tango.png
I did have a few questions for you. (see I have some questions for you.)
Talk end option tango.png
I'd better get to it, then.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll think about it.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the warning.
Talk end option tango.png
I don't have time now.
If you had a Singed Golem Parts in your inventory
You found them! Scruffy's as good as fixed. All I need to do is install them and recalibrate the internal thaumic resonance matrix. Braham and I will be out of here in no time. Thanks!
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions. (see I have some questions for you.)
Talk end option tango.png
You're welcome.

After

Hello again, <Character name> Scruffy here is out of commission until further notice, so do me a favor and talk to me to help pass the time.
Talk more option tango.png
I have some questions for you.
Ask me anything. I'll keep my knowledge-to-speculation ratio at nine to one or better.
Talk more option tango.png
Why did you come here? What did you hope to learn?
I intended to examine Scarlet's probes, which would allow me to expore two subjects at once. What is Scarlet up to, and how does she create such fantastic equipment?
Talk more option tango.png
What did you learn about the probes?
Not as much as I wanted to. I think they're designed to identify ley lines—the channels that magical energy follows as it crisscrosses the globe.
Talk more option tango.png
Can you explain ley lines?
I'll try. They're analogous to ocean currents or atmospheric weather patterns, but with magic instead of water or air. Magic flows and cycles, and ley lines are the paths it chooses to follow.
Talk more option tango.png
What does Scarlet want with ley lines?
No idea yet. Mapping ley lines could allow her to identify the places of power where they converge. I need more time to figure it out for sure.
Talk more option tango.png
Why are you so fascinated by Scarlet?
In a word: freedom. She studied all over the world, she sets her own agenda, and she gets to build whatever she thinks up. Villainy aside, that's every genius's dream.
Talk more option tango.png
True, but I'm not willing to put her villainy aside. Most people aren't.
Hey, you asked. I never said she was a role model or moral paragon. I just like her work and envy the opportunities she has.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.

Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk more option tango.png
How did you get here?
I followed the Aetherblades Scarlet sent to break Mai Trin out of jail. They led me to a portal that took me here. Then my golem broke down and Braham came to babysit me until Scruffy gets fixed.
Talk more option tango.png
But how did you get away from Braham?
That was easy. When the Aetherblades broke Mai out of prison, all he saw was another opportunity to yell "Kuh-bam!" By the time he remembered I was there, I was already gone.
Talk more option tango.png
What about the danger? What would your parents say?
Parents? Ha! All I've got are bossy grown-ups. As to what they'll say—Braham will make more bellowing noises, Zojja will try to ground me...again...and Vorpp will just sigh and shake his head.
Talk more option tango.png
So you're an orphan?
That's right. I've been a ward of the Rata Sum social-agency division—Progeny Protective Services—since I was a baby. But neither that nor my legs ever slowed me down much.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.

Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk more option tango.png
Scruffy? You mean your golem? (see Tell me about your golem.)
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk more option tango.png
Are you injured? What happened to your legs?
I was born this way. My legs were never strong enough to carry me very far. Don't pity me, though. I hate pity. And I don't need it because I do just fine for myself.
Talk more option tango.png
I can see that. Can your legs be cured?
That remains to be seen. The degenerative effects of my condition may spread to other parts of my body as I get older, but for now it's just the legs.
Talk more option tango.png
How far can you walk?
I can get in and out of Scruffy when I need to. For example, I can walk from my bedroom to the water closet. Just don't ask me to be your partner in a dance marathon.
Talk more option tango.png
Scruffy? You mean your golem? (see Tell me about your golem.)
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me about your golem.
His name is Scruffy, and I built him from scratch. He's got some quirks, but he's also got some features no one else has even heard of. He's my conveyance, butler, and battle armor all rolled into one.
Talk more option tango.png
Where are his missing parts again?
Scruffy's parts should be near Scarlet's probes in a chamber under the central island. Look for the bridges that go down there. It'll be a snap for someone yith your brainpower, right?
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk back option tango.png
I have a few more questions.
Talk end option tango.png
Thanks for the information. I'll check in with you later.
Talk end option tango.png
Not right now, thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
You're welcome.

Escape from Lion's Arch

At Vigilant Hills
You're here! Good! Were you in Lion's Arch? Did you see Scarlet? Is she there? I can't find a single person who saw her there.
Talk more option tango.png
What do you care?
This could be my last chance to see her in action while still young and cute enough that she won't kill me outright.
Talk more option tango.png
She's killing lots of people, Taimi. Killing them dead. It's not a game.
I know. She's dangerous. I get it. But you can't make gold without breaking a few beakers. I don't want to talk to her anymore. I just want to observe. Surely I could do that!
Talk more option tango.png
Do not go into Lion's Arch. The miasma will kill you.
Oh, all right. I won't go there. I'm not stupid. Besides, Scarlet's not even there.
Talk more option tango.png
Does Zojja know you're out here? (asura only?)
No. And you're not going to tell her, are you? Besides. Vigil. Right there. And when I'm ready to go home, the gate to Rata Sum is just up a few stairs in the fortress.
Talk more option tango.png
You don't like your studies, do you?
I like to learn. I just don't believe that sitting in a lab—listening to a boring old magidork—is the way to do it. No offense.
Talk end option tango.png
For the record, I'm not boring.
Talk end option tango.png
?
Talk end option tango.png
Keep collecting eyewitness reports. You're bound to learn something.
Talk end option tango.png
I can't believe you just said that.
Talk end option tango.png
You're betting too much on her good will.
Talk end option tango.png
She's not there. Stop looking.

Battle for Lion's Arch

At Vigilant Hills
I keep hearing the most terrible stories from the people coming out of Lion's Arch. Is is all true? Is Scarlet really responsible for all those deaths?
Talk more option tango.png
Those and more.
They wouldn't let me through the gate, not even Scruffy, but if you see Scarlet, could you give her a message for me?
Talk more option tango.png
What do you want me to say?
Tell her that I will be far more powerful than she ever will, and one day, I'll find her and make her pay for this.
Talk more option tango.png
We'll see. You're safe if she doesn't know you exist.
I'm not afraid of her! Much.
Talk end option tango.png
Just stay here in the camp until this is over. It'll ease my mind.
(If the player character has completed Scarlet's End)
Talk more option tango.png
It's too late Taimi. She's dead.
What? Really? Like dead dead? Are you sure?
Talk more option tango.png
Positive. I killed her myself.
Was there lots of blood? Did you see her guts? She went down fighting right?
Talk more option tango.png
She did. And injured Braham and-
She hurt Braham? Is he okay? What happened? Did he lose any body parts?
Talk end option tango.png
She broke his leg. You can visit him later, in the Dead End.
Talk end option tango.png
You're betting too much on her good will.
Talk end option tango.png
Most definitely.

Battle for Lion's Arch: Aftermath

In The Dead End (Aftermath)
Primary article: The Dead End (Aftermath)#Dialogue
I told you so. I told you all. I knew Scarlet had grand plans, but did you listen? No. And now, there's at least one dragon, maybe more, who want to destroy all of Tyria.
Talk more option tango.png
You also told us Scarlet was fascinating.
I didn't lie. She was. Okay, maybe I underestimated just how dangerous she was, but that's a minor thing. I just wanted to see her lab and maybe be her apprentice for a while.
Talk more option tango.png
She'd have killed you.
I know that. That's why I didn't do it, silly.
Talk end option tango.png
You were right about her grand plans, though.
Talk end option tango.png
Mind your manners.
