Hetzel… I had thought that you alone might be above Lekain’s foul conspiracy! It saddens me to see you at his side. [...] I didn’t ask for excuses! You fight alongside Lekain. That’s more proof than I’ll ever need. [...] Then how do you explain my confinement in Mainal Cathedral? [...] And when you did hear of it, why didn’t you stop it? [...] …didn’t say anything.
