King Slately: Yes! This explains everything!

King Slately: I was positively certain she was a traitor!

Prince Tramennis: "Traitor" is pretty over the top, really.

Prince Tramennis: Don't you think?

King Slately: Hardly!

King Slately: I expressly forbade any member of the Royal Crown Coalition from allying with Charlescomm.

Prince Tramennis: They didn't ally with Charlescomm, Father.

Prince Tramennis: Not technically.

Prince Tramennis: Nor do we know if Queen Jillian even hired Charlie.

Prince Tramennis: The impression I got was that he was working against Gobwin Knob on his own initiative, in concert with Faq.

Prince Tramennis: And at any rate, the results are plain enough.

Prince Tramennis: Charlie, in actual fact, saved us all.

King Slately: Impossible!

Prince Tramennis: Think of it. Without that fancy Turnamancy, Stanley would have taken this city and ended Jetstone forever!

Prince Tramennis: And Haggar would have defected at the least opportunity.

Prince Tramennis: Charlie forced them into the fight.

King Slately: Why!

King Slately: Tell me why, then!

King Slately: He must be a Toolist. He is attuned to an Arkentool!

Prince Tramennis: Well, I'm sure I don't know.

Prince Tramennis: But I believe...

Prince Tramennis: Yes.

Prince Tramennis: I believe I am going to ask him.

King Slately: Absolutely not!

Prince Tramennis: Father...

Prince Tramennis: I think you'll agree there is a great deal more going on in this battle than we know about.

Prince Tramennis: And I think you'll also agree that ignorance leaves us vulnerable.

King Slately: It need not.

King Slately: We have the forces to win now.

King Slately: Ossomer certainly didn't need to consult the enemy before every battle.

Prince Tramennis: Yes, well you don't have the warrior son for Chief Warlord now.

Prince Tramennis: You've got the diplomat.

Prince Tramennis: And I care to understand what's actually going on.

Prince Tramennis: Besides. If you want Ossomer's counsel, you can yet have it.

Prince Tramennis: I plan to have a talk with him, as well.
