King Adelaide: How interesting… Thank you for sharing your story with me. I can see now why you’d be uncomfortable with the way you are. But have you ever considered that strength and femininity do not necessarily have to be mutually exclusive?
Natani: That’s easy for you to say. You’re king of the Basitin! Here, it’s just your ability that matters to your people. It’s not the same with Keidran… or at least us wolves.
Natani: It doesn’t matter how strong you are; if you’re born a woman, that’s all my people ever see.
King Adelaide: Ah, that is unfortunate. But if I’m not mistaken…
King Adelaide: You are no longer among your people.
King Adelaide: Ah… I have enjoyed this discussion, but I am afraid I must get back to my duties. I’ll make sure you’re seen out.
King Adelaide: Guardsman, we’ve finished. Please see Natani back to his ship.
Basitin Soldier: Yes, Ma’am!
