@BOTZA-GUEST: Light grace you.
@EURFOB: Variks is relieved to hear you, Misraaks. You are there, beneath the Great Machine?
@BOTZA-GUEST: Yes. Without your assistance, we would never have survived the Vex attack.
@EURFOB: This is clear. And from this gratitude, you now speak in Human language during private correspondence?
@BOTZA-GUEST: I follow custom, and I do not wish my hosts to think I hide my words from them.
@EURFOB: How gracious. But Vex attacking you when House Salvation did? Curious, yes?
@BOTZA-GUEST: I have not had much time to ponder it.
@EURFOB: How are the survivors? The hatchlings? Your daughter?
@BOTZA-GUEST: They are all well. Eido is excited beyond words. She has dreamed of this day, but never believed it would come.
@BOTZA-GUEST: Why did you not come with us?
@EURFOB: The Great Machine has no business with Variks. Besides, who would keep an eye on Eramis?
@BOTZA-GUEST: I thought she—
@EURFOB: Always the hatchling. Nothing is forever.
@EURFOB: We know this.
@BOTZA-GUEST: I must go, Variks. There is much to do.
@EURFOB: Walk quietly in your own shadow, Misraakskel.
