A close view from the front and slightly above Prince Tramennis standing in a spotlight. He smiles in a disarming manner as rainbow lights play across his armor.|||
Charlie, represented by a multicolored presentation of his name, floats against a black background.|||
Charlie: Oh now!
Charlie: My arrangements are always personalized to the client's needs, on a case-by-case basis.
Charlie: You'd be surprised how much flexibility I'd be willing to show, to win back a lost customer like Jetstone.
Charlie: Besides, you've already earned 5000 Schmuckers in credit this turn.
An amused Prince Tramennis with one eyebrow raised smirks at the icon image of Charlie, which has assumed the form of a stylized apple in rainbow stripes.|||
Tramennis narrows his eyes, tilts his head, and gestures expansively with one hand as his epaulets begin to assume multicolored hues.|||
A side view of Tramennis, now simply serious, as he stares up at Charlie's icon, which has assumed the form of a rainbow-colored disco ball. Tramennis's epaulets have shifted completely to rainbow hues.|||
Charlie has now shifted to the form of a pink bear, with a white chest and muzzle; his nose is shaped like a heart, and his arms are crossed over the stylized rainbow on his chest. Tramennis, seen from behind, is still looking up at Charlie.|||
Charlie: I'd say...answering that question definitively would be one benefit of having at least one of my former units returned to me.
Charlie: So please do try to collect the full bounty.
Charlie: It, um, would be enough to designate you heir, you know.
Prince Tramennis: Yes, I can multiply, thank you.
An annoyed Tramennis glares at Charlie, who now resembles a hand reaching out of a cloud with a rainbow in its grasp. The Jetstone radish livery on Tramennis's armor begins to swirl into a new shape.|||
Tramennis's whole raiment is swirling into a new rainbow-colored form as he speaks to Charlie's icon, a cube-like object covered in a pastel checkerboard pattern, with a large question mark on the side facing Tramennis.|||
Tramennis glares over the sunglasses that have appeared on his face at Charlie's new form, a stylized flower in rainbow colors. Tramennis's raiment has taken on the appearance of a rainbow-swirl shirt.|||
Charlie: All right, you called to find out why I am in this fight.
Charlie: I don't like giving away valuable information, but you need this. Desperately.
Prince Tramennis: If you say so.
The projected image of Parson glares over the open Eyebook at something unseen.|||
Tramennis, now clad in a tie-dye t-shirt and sunglasses, rubs his chin thoughtfully as he examines the image of Parson in front of him.|||
