Lani sits crosslegged in her chair, pointing cheerfully.
Lani: I like Pavel! It's super weird how he showed up here of all places. But it doesn't seem to be his fault, yeah?
Irving leans in his chair, propping one boot up on the seat. He looks skeptical.
Irving: Yeah, Pavel's nice enough, but he's still seabitten. And Cheth is too fond of him for my liking. The kid's got 'unwitting pawn' written all over him.
Irving crossing his arms and closes his eyes.
Irving: Let's get him to the Lodestar Lab at the Spirefort and be done with it. He'll be way better protected there, and he can start trying to find his mother.
Lani looks at him pleadingly.
Lani: Aww. But he just got here! I finally get a new friend to talk to...
Irving looks at her with a single open eye, begrudgingly.
Irving: Maybe we SHOULD keep him here. You can bother him instead of me, for once.
Lani crosses her arms, looking insulted.
