— Haar, to Jill

Haar (Japanese: ハール Haar) is a dracoknight who once served the kingdoms of Daein and Begnion. He was once the right-hand man of General Shiharam Fizzart, and a member of his legendary Fizzart Platoon. Like Shiharam, his experiences in both Daein and Begnion left him resentful and without faith in the kings and nobles he once served, but he still fought as a Daein captain in the Mad King's War. He later became an ally of Ike and the Greil Mercenaries in the later stages of the war, and again years later when the Laguz Alliance declared war on Begnion's senate, whom Haar had once served.

Biography

Defection to Daein

Haar originated as a citizen of Begnion, and in his youth he joined the imperial dracoknights, a division of the Begnion army which reported directly to its senate. He served in the Fizzart Platoon under Shiharam Fizzart and became his "hotshot protegé", quickly becoming well known among both the ruling class and the soldiers of Begnion as an exemplary warrior and a chivalrous figure.[1] However, shortly after becoming a knight, Haar became disillusioned with Begnion and with his status as a servant of its corrupt senators.[2] Shiharam and many of the other members of the platoon felt the same way, so in the year 627,[3] the Fizzart Platoon abandoned Begnion. The departure of Shiharam and Haar was considered to be a major loss for Begnion;[1] Levail, who was new to the army at the time, would later reflect that it marked a significant change in the Begnion army and that its spirit and sense of chivalry had left with the dracoknights.[2]

After leaving Begnion, Haar and Shiharam traveled to Daein, where Ashnard had just become king. They volunteered their services to Ashnard, thinking then that perhaps he would be a better master to serve than the senate, and he appointed them as "Palace Knights".[3] However, Shiharam and Haar were not readily trusted by Ashnard or the rest of Daein. They wanted to earn the trust of their new countrymen and superiors and to prove themselves as loyal Daein citizens, so despite being repulsed by the idea, they adopted the common Daein anti-laguz sentiments when in public and participated in laguz hunts and executions, and followed any orders they received even if they were needlessly cruel.[4] Despite all of their efforts, however, Ashnard never recognized their loyalty[5] and many of his subordinates actively disliked and scorned Shiharam and Haar. Because of this lack of trust, their platoon - having been trained in Begnion as elite royal guards - was assigned to the protection of the remote Talrega region to keep them well out of Ashnard's way.[6]

The Mad King's War

When Ashnard began the Mad King's War in 645 by leading a Daein invasion of Crimea, Haar served in the Daein army. He was present with a dracoknight unit which included Shiharam's daughter, Jill, when Ike and Elincia fought the Daein soldiers occupying the city in order to reach Nasir's boat and flee Crimea. Their orders there were to stand aside and observe, so Haar tried to order Jill to stay put while he napped, but she did not listen and entered the battle as well. When they successfully escaped, he also refused Jill's request to pursue them because the Black Knight had ordered the two to withdraw and return to Talrega.[7] However, Jill defied his orders and set out by herself to pursue Ike's ship, and eventually had a change of heart and became an ally of Ike's cause.

Haar began to work on tracking her down after her disappearance at Toha, and eventually found her in the company of the new Crimean army led by Ike after they began their invasion of Daein. He approached Jill at the Crimeans' base camp early on and learned of her experiences with the Greil Mercenaries and of her new convictions. While pleased to learn that her worldview had evolved, he warned her that this made them enemies of each other, then left.[8] Days later, when Shiharam was ordered by General Petrine to flood Talrega to stop the advance of the Crimean army, Shiharam ordered Haar to sit out the battle in order to take care of the surviving dracoknights and their families. By the end of the battle, Shiharam had been killed and only five of his men had survived. Haar offered them a chance to return to Begnion thanks to a contact of his in the Begnion pegasus knights, since their defeat put an end to any right they had to remain in Daein in their view.[9]

Some time later, General Petrine took command of Haar and ordered him to participated in the battle against the Crimean army at the great Oribes Bridge. By this point, however, Haar only wanted revenge against Daein for its role in driving Shiharam to his death, and realized that Petrine's use of him in battle was intended to kill both him and Crimean soldiers, in order to put an end to both threats. As a result, he joined the battle late, and was convinced by Jill to take a chance on serving with Crimea. He then joined the Crimean army, insisting on addressing Jill as his superior officer as a result on the longer time she had spent in the army.[10] Haar then continued to fight for the Crimean army for the rest of the Mad King's War.

Civil wars and judgement

In the years after the Mad King's War concluded, Haar and Jill took up jobs as couriers, using their wyverns to deliver cargo across long distances. After a while, however, Jill left and became involved in the fight for Daein's liberation. Haar chose not to follow her and to continue his courier work.[11] Shortly after the Daein liberation war ended in 648, Haar ran a delivery which took him through the skies of Crimea, where he encountered Elincia and Marcia fighting a dracoknight squad led by Zeffren, a former comrade of Haar's from his time in Begnion. Despite his reluctance, Marcia successfully convinced Haar to assist her in protecting Elincia.

After this battle, Lucia commissioned Haar to assist her plans to protect Elincia from Ludveck's civil war. Following the Royal Knights' attack on Felirae Castle and their discovery that Ludveck was not there, Haar spotted a flare lit by the Royal Knights to warn the capital. Lucia tasked Haar with warning Elincia at Fort Alpea if Lucia failed to return to the palace.[12] Shortly after this, Lucia was abducted by Ludveck and his men while trying to get in touch with a member of her spy network. Haar assisted the Crimeans with searching the safe house where she was last seen, where they found a scrap of Lucia's hair left by Ludveck, and the corpse of the messenger she was attempting to contact. He then flew to Fort Alpea and brought the news of both Ludveck's incoming attack on the fort, and of Lucia's abduction, to Elincia, and volunteered his services in fighting against Ludveck's rebels.[13]

Shortly after the Crimean civil war was resolved, Haar was recruited by Muston's merchant caravan on behalf of Ike. Along with Nephenee, Brom, and Heather, he traveled with the caravan to Begnion to join the Greil Mercenaries in fighting for the Laguz Alliance.[14] He took a personal interest in the Alliance's war as a result of his dislike for their enemies, the Begnion senate.[11] Daein soon joined the war as an unwilling ally of the Begnion senate, which put Haar and Jill on opposing sides. When the Greil Mercenaries and the Laguz Alliance were recruited into the Apostle's Army to assist Sanaki in taking back control of Begnion from the senate, Haar continued to serve in their ranks.

After the battle of Castle Nox, Haar participated in the battles against the Disciples of Order as Ike and Micaiah's allies traveled to the Tower of Guidance in Sienne. By this point Haar was considered by many to be a legendary dracoknight of unmatched strength, but after the defeat of Ashera and the reversal of her judgement, Haar chose to give up serving as a soldier and never participated in another battle for the rest of his life. Instead, he returned to Talrega to continue his work as a courier.[15]

Personality and character

At first glance, Haar comes across as a lax and lazy man who frequently takes naps, even in broad daylight and on his wyvern. He has remarked that he prefers working in laid-back groups where he can get the sleep he needs without problems, such as the Greil Mercenaries.[11] He speaks in a blunt and to-the-point manner with no interest in wasting words, and he has a calm demeanor, seemingly uncaring about anything. He does not anger easily, even when others like Zeffren try to actively provoke him with insults.

All of this behavior disguises Haar's analytical and sensitive mind. He has a strong sense of duty and honor, but did not believe in blind obedience to higher powers. As a result he has high expections of the rulers he serves and was not willing to serve those whom he felt to be exploitative or corrupt, and has a particular dislike for the senators of Begnion (aside from Sephiran) for their cruel actions. He has high respect for honest and noble leaders and commanders, such as Shiharam, Ike, and Sephiran. He was insightful in his ability to read others and understand the nature of the politics of Begnion.[1] His experiences with both Daein and Begnion left him very skeptical and mistrusting of the idea of being a servant of kings and countries.[10] At times he takes it upon himself to mentor Jill and to help her see how to live the life she wants, rather than be nothing but obedient to those whom she serves, and during the Mad King's War he was impressed to see that she had taken the initiative and found her own loyalties with the Greil Mercenaries.[16] He also has a vengeful streak, desiring to take revenge both on the Daein army for their role in driving Shiharam to his death,[10] and on the Begnion senate for the crimes they perpetuated both during and after his time serving them.[11]

Haar always held Shiharam in very high regard and had much respect for him, to the point that he put aside his usual behavior to act more like a professional soldier when he was talking to Shiharam, as he did not want Shiharam to see him as "hopelessly lazy".[17] He was so highly devoted to Shiharam that, after his death, Haar considered dedicating his life to guarding Shiharam's grave once the Mad King's War ended.[18] He is also close with Jill, Shiharam's daughter, and is something like a mentor to her. He may have deeper feelings for her, and it is implied that the two are married in the epilogue of Radiant Dawn if they have an A support with each other, but he denies there being anything deeper to it and that it goes no further than her being the daughter of his dead mentor.[11]

Quotes

Battle quotes

Combat. Tsk. It's one of those things you simply cannot control.
— Haar, as an enemy in Chapter 23 in Path of Radiance.

Against Jill in Path of Radiance Chapter 23

Haar: Oh, so you want to try me? I trust you're going to show me how much you've improved!
Jill: What!!! It can't be... Captain Haar?

Against Petrine in Path of Radiance Chapter 23

Petrine: Just as I expected. I thought to give you a chance to clear the stain from your name... Yet you and Shiharam are treachery in the flesh. Useless migrants!
Haar: To think we endured this for eighteen long years. It seems General Shiharam and I were not to be blessed with any masters worthy of serving. All we found were paltry pretenders...
Petrine: You insult His Majesty? You know not your place, you louse-ridden oaf! Your failings are yours, and yours alone! It's time for you to burn! Don't worry, I'll let the dogs snack on what's left!

Against Ashnard in the Path of Radiance Endgame

Ashnard: Who are you, dog?
Haar: You don't seem to recall my name... I'm a man who was once a part of your army, if just barely.
Ashnard: You're some nobody who turned traitor and joined the Crimeans? I've no interest in you. Begone.
Haar: I'll leave as quickly as I'm able. Right after I've taken your head!

Against Zeffren in Radiant Dawn's Part 2 Prologue

Haar: Well... If it isn’t Zeffren. What brings the dracoknights into Crimean skies?
Zeffren: Haar?!
Haar: Why couldn’t you just stay on patrol? Saw a pretty little heron and just had to have her, is that it? I could never decide if you were more greedy or more corrupt. Stupid was never in the question, though.
Zeffren: Who do you think you are?! You’re a traitor, just like Shiharam! The dracoknights spit on your name!
Haar: ...Do they now? Well, here’s your chance to try the real thing.

Against Hetzel in Radiant Dawn's Part 4 Endgame (1)

Hetzel: Wait... I remember you... You were one of the dracoknights that fled to Daein, defying the senators... You opposed the almighty Begnion and the word of the goddess... Why? Why would you defy such power?
Haar: You could live another lifetime, and you’d still never understand.

Against Lekain in Radiant Dawn's Part 4 Endgame (1)

Haar: Why is it that authority figures are always so unwilling to let go of their power? The world could flip upside down and you’d be trying to boss around gravity.
Lekain: You clearly know nothing of me, lout! To oppose me is to oppose the goddess Ashera herself!
Haar: That’s strange… I always thought that role was filled by the apostle. But who can keep up these days? So you’re defending the goddess… but will she do the same for you?

Against Levail in Radiant Dawn's Part 4 Endgame (2)

Levail: Captain Haar! You are still alive!
Haar: What happened that you didn't expect me to survive?
Levail: Um… Nothing, I suppose. It's just that it's been a while since you left Begnion.
Haar: Yeah. Twenty years ago, wasn't it?
Levail: I was still very young at the time. You had just been dubbed a knight. Oh, it brings back such memories… The bravery of the dracoknights, especially the Fizzart Platoon. It was legendary among the soldiers. But then you suddenly defected to Daein.
Haar: I got sick of taking orders from corrupt senators, so I ditched the country with General Shiharam.
Levail: I joined the army after I came of age. But it was different after you all left. It was as if you took its spirit with you. The only exception was General Zelgius, the general of Duke Persis's army.
Haar: I see. Is that why you're under his command?
Levail: Yes. He is the last true knight. I will die for him.
Haar: Yes, Levail. You will.
Levail: How I dreamed of fighting a proper foe! I am honored, Sir Haar! Have at you!

Against Sephiran in Radiant Dawn's Part 4 Endgame (4)

Haar: We never spent much time together when I was in Begnion. But, Sephiran… I think I know you pretty well.
Sephiran: I haven’t forgotten you, Haar. Shiharam’s hotshot young protege. You were both exemplary soldiers. Your defection from the Begnion dracoknights was a huge loss.
Haar: Hmmm… Sort of like the huge loss when the senators managed to defeat all those great changes you proposed?
Sephiran:
Haar: I suppose if any of those changes had happened, we wouldn’t be here now. Am I wrong?
Sephiran: An interesting question… I’m honestly not sure, but that’s all I can say about that.
Haar: Too bad. For you, and for me.

No matter how passionate you are when you tell me you'll defeat Crimea, I'll never pin my hopes on a bunch of foreigners. All you have to do is stop their forward progress. That's all.

We have spared no effort to learn all the proper manners and customs of this land. But now, after all of that, to be dismissed as a "bunch of foreigners..."

    Haar: Would be suicide. Correct. So let's move out!
    Jill: Blast.
    " - Jill and Haar, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  8. "Jill: ...Who's there?
    Haar: It's me.
    Jill: Captain Haar? B-but...This is an enemy camp!
    Haar: I've been trying to track you down ever since you disappeared at Toha. I figured you were off chasing after the Crimeans. I never imagined that you would join up with them.
    Jill: At first, it was just circumstance, but... But now it's different. Now I'm with them because I want to be. Spending time with them--and coming into contact with laguz--has shown me what a fool I've been.
    Haar: Laguz? I never thought I would hear that word from someone who once said "sub-human" with such absolute hatred. Sounds like you've had some good experiences with this happy little band.
    Jill: I knew that if anyone would understand, it would be you, Captain.
    Haar: So you're forming your own set of values for the first time. That's good. That's very, very good. But what are you planning to do now? If you keep moving forward, you're going to face General Shiharam before long.
    Jill: Causing trouble for my father was never my intent. However...As a member of this army, I will face him with my shoulders straight and my head held high.
    Haar: So you're determined to see this through?
    Jill: I am!
    Haar: So be it. Then there's nothing left to be said. Farewell. The next time we meet, it will be as enemies. Prepare yourself... And get some rest! You know how important it is.
    Jill: ...
    Mist: Ike? Can I talk to you? A few minutes ago, a man I've never seen before showed up and spoke to Jill. I wasn't sure what was going on, so I went and found you. W-what should we do? Whatever they're talking about, it sure looks serious!
    Ike: Jill trained in the Daein army. Fighting against her countrymen will be tough...No matter how prepared she thinks she is.
    Mist: I don't care what happens! You can't let her fight against her own father! All right, Ike?
    Ike: ...Hmmm. It might not be a bad idea to keep her at the base camp...Just while we're in Daein.
    " - Jill, Haar, Mist, and Ike, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  9. "Haar: One, two, three... Five in all. We're lucky to have that many.
    Soldier: Captain Haar... What are we supposed to do now? General Shiharam is dead, and our homes are gone. What are we to do with our families?
    Haar: What do you want to do? We've lost any right we had to stay here. So that leaves Begnion or Crimea...
    Soldier: General Shiharam was slain by Crimea...Joining with them now is not...It's not possible.
    Haar: Then all you can do is return to Begnion. I doubt you'll get a hero's welcome, but...I've an old friend in the pegasus knights. Shall I contact her?
    Soldier: Sniff... Ah, gods. Eighteen long years...What does any of it mean now?
    Haar: Don't say that! No matter what, I'm proud to have served under General Shiharam.
    Soldier: You're right... It was an honor...
    " - Haar and a Daein soldier, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 "Haar: Greetings, Jill. So you're still alive, eh? Good to see.
    Jill: That's what I was going to say to you! You survived! I'm very pleased.
    Haar: General Shiharam left me in charge. I'm supposed to get our survivors and their families to Begnion. I can't die until that's done.
    Jill: Oh, I see... But then... Captain, why are you still in Daein?
    Haar: I... Believe it or not, I'm a vindictive man. Revenge for the general is something I couldn't let go.
    Jill: Oh! But...that...
    Haar: Don't get the wrong idea. You're not the enemy I'm seeking.
    Jill: Huh? But...
    Haar: The ones responsible for General Shiharam's death, are the Daeins. I pretended to return to the fold so I could get close to General Petrine...I'm just waiting for my chance. But I think they may be on to me. My unit's a bunch of tough guys who serve as Petrine's watchdogs. Plus, I've been ordered to charge the Crimeans head-on. It's Daein's way of killing two birds with one stone.
    Jill: Don't do it! Come fight by our sides! If you're looking to kill Daeins, then we share the same goal!
    Haar: Jill... I, um... I don't trust Crimea anymore than I do Daein. I'm sick to death of serving countries.
    Jill: Captain...
    Haar: Still... I can't abandon the daughter of the man to whom I owe so much... Guess I'm changing sides again.
    Jill: Really? Oh, thank you, Captain!
    Haar: No, you've got that backwards.
    Jill: Pardon?
    Haar: I'm a new recruit... So I'm under you. Thanks in advance, Captain.
    Jill: What? Don't be silly! Wait...Ah, Captain!!!

    Haar: You need something from me, fearless leader?
    Ike: I thought you were asleep.
    Haar: Yeah, I was. Until you came within fifty paces of me. Yaaaaaawn…
    Ike: Do you mind fighting alongside us?
    Haar: I like it fine. As long as I can catch some sleep, I don’t care where I am. What can I do for you?
    Ike: Ever since you joined us, I’ve been meaning to ask you about Jill. The last I’d heard, you were running some kind of delivery service with her. How did you end up passing through Crimea and then coming here?
    Haar: I stopped to chew some fat during a delivery. That’s all.
    Ike: How’s Jill these days?
    Haar: Last I heard, she got mixed up with the army again, fighting for Daein’s emancipation.
    Ike: I see. Don’t you think you ought to go back to Daein and give her some support?
    Haar: She’s a big girl now. She doesn’t need me always lookin over her shoulder. Jill can do whatever she wants.
    Ike: I don’t understand. I thought you two were… You know. Living under the same roof and all.
    Haar: She’s the daughter of my dead teacher. Nothing more. Hey, if you don’t want me hanging around, feel free to just say so, all right?
    Ike: No, it isn’t like that. You’re great on the battlefield. I appreciate you being here.
    Haar: Good. I like your mercenary group. They’re laid back, and we have the same goal: crushing the empire.
    Ike: That’s true.
    Haar: Anyhow, is that all? I’m gonna nap until we deploy. Don’t wake me up until then.
    Ike: All right.
    Haar: Hey… Wait.
    Ike: Hmm?
    Haar: See that bag on my wyvern? There’s a souvenir in there for you. Feel free to take it.
    Ike: A souvenir?
    Haar: It’s a small thing. You don’t need to thank me. …Yaaawn… Zzz… Zzz…
    Ike: Asleep already? What a strange guy.
    " - Ike and Haar, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
  12. "Haar: …Well, look at that. Someone's launched a flare… And from Felirae, of all places.
    Lucia: The emergency signal from Geoffrey! As I suspected… The rebels were just a decoy. Sir Haar, thank you for your assistance.
    Haar: Hey, wait… Are you telling me that you knew about this all along?
    Lucia: We knew the duke was up to no good. But if we had known about the decoys, we wouldn't have sent the Royal Knights to Castle Felirae. I suppose I'm just surprised that Lord Ludveck, the supposed epitome of nobility, would so willingly sacrifice his followers.
    Haar: You know…you play a pretty deep game, woman.
    Lucia: We all do, wouldn't you say? Her Majesty is at Fort Alpea. We're due to hear from her at any moment. I'll go check on that.
    Haar: Sharp as a tack, aren't we? I think I'll excuse myself, then…
    Lucia: Actually, there's one more thing… I want you to wait here a little longer. If all goes as planned, I'll be back shortly with your payment. Then you may do as you wish.
    Haar: And if all doesn't go as planned?
    Lucia: Then set out for Fort Alpea and alert the queen. I'll also send a messenger to Geoffrey. Thank you.
    Haar: Very well, time for a nap…
    " - Haar and Lucia, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
  13. "Haar: So… We're guessing that flare sent up from Geoffrey's troops means Ludveck plans to come for Your Majesty. He's probably marching his troops toward this fortress as we speak. Since it's come to this, I'd like to stick around and help. Let me know if you need me.
    Elincia: …I see. Thank you ever so much. Sir Haar… I have one more question. What about Lucia? Have you heard from her? Is she safe?
    Haar: We found a man's body in the village safehouse. We believe he was her messenger. We also found this…
    Elincia: No! This is… This is Lucia's hair! But… How?
    Haar: Well, we assume that Ludveck infiltrated her network of spies and captured her. This is his way of letting us know. It also means she's still alive, which means we still can save her. Queen Elincia, it's up to you to determine the best course of action.
    Elincia: Y-yes, I… I know…

  15. "Though unparallelled in strength as a dracoknight, Haar never fought again. Rather, he carried cargo in Talrega." - Epilogue, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
  16. "Jill: Sir Haar! Why are you fighting for these people?!
    Haar: Hey, you stole my question! Why are you fighting in the Daein army?
    Jill: There was a war to liberate Daein while you were gone. So I joined the army again.
    Haar: Well, it looks like you did a good job. Daein has been liberated. So why are you still with the army?
    Jill: I can’t just leave! These people are my friends!
    Haar: Oh, stop with the sentimental nonsense, Jill. In case you haven’t noticed, you’re fighting your friends, too.
    Jill: What about you, then? How did you end up in this fight?
    Haar: Well… Somehow, I got mixed up in putting down uprisings in Crimea. And then I ended up with the Laguz Alliance because…you know, being old friends with Ike and all that.
    Jill: What?! That is hardly a cause worth fighting for!! You’re unbelievable!
    Haar: All right, enough debating. What do you want to do now? Do you want to fight me?
    Jill: Of course not! I could never…
    Haar: Then join me.
    Jill: Easy for you to say!
    Haar: You’re full of doubt. How do you live like that all the time? Is that how your father wanted you to live? Afraid to trust your own instincts?
    Jill: But…
    Haar: Daein has no business in this war. You know that, right?
    Jill: But…what about my comrades? What about my friends?
    Haar: Is dying how you show loyalty? If you’re really their friend, then fight alongside us! Maybe that will get them to think about what they’re doing.
    Jill: Oh, Captain…
    Haar: Come with me, Jill. We both know that we should follow our hearts, even if it makes us traitors. We know that better than anyone. For the sake of your father, live your life without shame.
    Jill: Y-you’re right, Captain Haar! I’ve been so foolish. Just as before. I would be proud to serve with you. And…Captain Haar? Thank you. Thank you so much…

  17. "Jill: Mr. Haaaaaaaaar! Where are you!? Mr. Haar!!!
    Haar: I’m right behind you.
    Jill: Why can’t you just respond the first time I call for you? And didn’t you promise that you’d respond right away if I stopped calling you captain?
    Haar: That was only if I wasn’t sleeping.
    Jill: Well, that’s most of the time! By the way, it seems like the only time you acted like a professional soldier was when you were in front of my father.
    Haar: And I recall the only time you weren’t so uptight was when you were around Lord Shiharam.
    Jill: I… I couldn’t help it. He was my father. He was different.
    Haar: I’m with you on that. Lord Shiharam was something special. I didn’t want him to see me as hopelessly lazy.
    Jill: Mr. Haar…
    Haar: Mmm… I think I’ll just stretch out here… Yeah…that’s it. This moss is nice and squishy. Leave me alone. It’s nap time.
    " - Jill and Haar, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  18. "Jill: Mr. Haar?
    Haar: Yes?
    Jill: That’s strange. I didn’t have to call for you a hundred times before you answered!
    Haar: Well, I figured this way I don’t have to listen to your whining.
    Jill: Oh, so that’s how it is? Well, whatever…
    Haar: What are you going to do when this war is over, Jill?
    Jill: Hopefully go back to Daein. I want to be near my father’s grave.
    Haar: I see.
    Jill: What about you?
    Haar: If I survive sparring with Ashnard… I don’t know what I’ll do. I’ve already thought about guarding Lord Shiharam’s grave.
    Jill: Does that mean you’re not happy being with me?
    Haar: That’s not it. I was just thinking you probably don’t like being with me.
    Jill: Why would I not like that?
    Haar: Then if we both survive this war, let’s start a wyvern courier service. We’ll make a lot of loot.
    Jill: Sure… If we survive.
