|“||You hear that? That's the sound of food that we can't even get near while you're sitting here protecting that idiot. You made us a promise when you turned us. You had goals we bought into. But look at us! We've been wolf-bait, beaten up, stuck exiled across the river, then stuck here! And now, when we're all looking to you for help, you don't even tell us that you're dying. You're supposed to be our leader, but right now, you suck at it.||”|
