Death to the rogues who defy Daein! Defend our brethren! Erase their shame!
— Kotaff, as the boss of Chapter 9 in Path of Radiance.

Against Ike in Chapter 9

Kotaff: So, you are the new commander... Tell me, boy, what cowardly tactics did you employ to fell our brothers? You must have deceived them. There's no way rabble like you could defeat Daein troops in a fair fight.
Ike:: From the very beginning, every last one of you has underestimated us. Will you never learn? Your refusal to recognize our strength will forever keep victory at arm's length.
Kotaff: Silence! Silence, you idiot child!
Ike:: You're right. No more talk.

Against Lethe in Chapter 9

Kotaff: Bah! So the sub-humans have come crawling out of their dens, eh?
Lethe: Beorc maggot! Those who call us by that hateful name shall earn a swift and merciless death!

Against Mordecai in Chapter 9

Kotaff: At last we meet, sub-human! I will exterminate you with my own two hands! My HUMAN hands!
Mordecai: Sub... Sub-human? Grrraaaaaa!

Death quotes

Arrgh...urr...urg... In the name...of the empire... Cleanse...my shame...
