Sialillion's expression darkens.  She replies in Elven, "I see... you do not
intend to survive the final battle..."  She looks at the rest of the party,
as if for the first time considering that this trip to Rath-Iren may be a
one-way journey for everyone.  She then approaches Talas, places a hand on
his shoulder, and continues in Elven.  "Even if that is the case, swear to
me that you will not take stupid risks, that you will keep fighting until
there is truly no more fighting to be done.  You do no good to anyone a
corpse."  Her words come out angry and forceful, but her expression betrays
a soft mournfulness.  She keeps her eyes fixed on Talas's for a time, then
looks away.  "I will honor your wishes in regards to the girl."  She says
finally, also in Elven.

"Talas is right, we shouldn't burden the garrison with the girl," she says
in American to the rest of the party finally.  "But Talas, you take
responsibility for her.  If she becomes a liability, you have to do what
needs to be done for the sake of the party.  The fate of the world hangs in
the balance, and I will not have our quest undone by a stupid, spoiled
girl.  Now we've stood here running our mouths long enough.  Let's go get
Osiris and Louissa and get out of here before the Last Bridge crumbes from
our inaction."
