As they begin to turn away, and the door begins to shut, Justin will bow to the crowned one, then back inside the door, as it closes over him.

OOC: Justin is fairly well educated on dwarven culture in general, though he's most familiar with the clans of his homeland. Does he recognize the star, or the words? 

> With that Thur walks away towards the old dwarf. 

Justin will listen, are there any active forges or the sound of metalwork coming out of any of the surrounding passages?

A mistake, even a violent one, in a tense situation does not rise to the level of a crime, and a wise King will recognize that." He turns to Louissa, and asks "Is the King they speak of a wise King? Or is he not? If he rules justly, then we should clear the matter up as soon as we can. If he does not rule justly, then the matter becomes a bit more thorny."
