Justice's remarks Edit
- (When entering the Amaranthine market) "This is where mortals come to trade? I once tried to trade with a hunger demon. It wasn't very reasonable."
- (On the bridge in Knotwood Hills) "I sense darkspawn nearb--Pardon me. That is likely not a surprise."
- (Upon finding the secret passage in Kal'Hirol) "I would have preferred the direct approach. It is more righteous."
- (When walking inside Kal'Hirol Main Hall) "There are places in the Fade that look like this. Usually a hunger demon is to blame."
- (When nearing large lyrium container in Kal'Hirol Trade Quarter) "This...this substance...sings to me. Do you hear it? I did not know something so beautiful could exist."
- (Kal'Hirol Lower Reaches, in the long hallway) "I suspect we're in for a big surprise at the end of this passageway."
- (Kal'Hirol's Lower Reaches, near the broodmother pit) "I cannot bear the sight of those creatures. Let us destroy them and be done with this!"
- (When entering the Wending Wood, upon seeing the wreaked caravan) "These people must be avenged."
- (At an overlook in the Wending Wood, near the suspicious camp.) "One can see for miles. I never thought the world of mortals would be so beautiful."
- (At buriel pit in the Wending Wood) "They are human, and probably from a settlement near here. No doubt they were sent to get rid of whatever is in the woods. I swear, I will avenge their deaths."
- (At the Silverite Mine, upon seeing the ballista) "Let us avoid direct confrontation with these darkspawn. Kristoff's body is showing disturbing wear and tear."
- (When nearing the dragon bone head in the Blackmarsh) "It was the baroness who destroyed this beast, centuries ago. The villagers in the Fade talked about it."
- Anders: Why do spirits seek out mages? I've always wondered.
- Justice: You speak of demons. I am not a demon.
- Anders: Aren't demons simply spirits with unique and sparkling personalities?
- Justice: They have been perverted by their desires.
- Anders: But what do they want from mages?
- Justice: Perhaps they wish the same as I: silence.
- Anders: Are you saying that you could become a demon, Justice?
- Justice: I said no such thing.
- Anders: You said that demons were spirits perverted by their desires.
- Justice: I have no such desires.
- Anders: You must have some desires...
- Justice: I have none! Desist your questions!
- Anders: I apologize, Justice. I didn't mean to suggest you would become a demon.
- Justice: I should certainly hope not.
- Anders: I just wondered what relation there is between spirits and demons. Demons are a worry to any mage.
- Justice: I do not know what makes demons as they are. Such evil angers me, but I do not understand it.
- Anders: Well, I hope you never come to understand.
- Justice: I as well, mage. More than you could possibly know.
- Justice: I see that your feline companion remains with you.
- Anders: He seems happy enough. Isn't that right, Ser Pounce-a-lot?
- Ser Pounce-a-lot: (Meow!)
- Justice: To enslave another creature does not seem just.
- Anders: He's not a slave! He's a friend. And he's also a cat.
- Justice: A cat that lacks freedom.
- Anders: Just ignore him, Ser Pounce-a-lot. They don't have pets in the Fade, apparently.
- Ser Pounce-a-lot: (Meow!)
- Justice: I understand that you struggle against your oppression, mage.
- Anders: I avoid my oppression. That's not quite the same thing, is it?
- Justice: Why do you not strike a blow against your oppressors? Ensure they can do this to no one else?
- Anders: Because it sounds difficult?
- Justice: Apathy is a weakness.
- Anders: So is death. I'm just saying.
- Justice: I believe you have a responsibility to your fellow mages.
- Anders: That bit of self-righteousness is directed at me?
- Justice: You have seen oppression and are now free. You must act to free those who remain oppressed.
- Anders: Or I could mind my business, in case the Chantry comes knocking.
- Justice: But this is not right. You have an obligation.
- Anders: Yes, well... welcome to the world, spirit.
- Justice: So you are a thief?
- Nathaniel: Who, me? Not by profession, my friend.
- Justice: And yet you were imprisoned for attempted theft.
- Nathaniel: Of things which belonged to my family, and which were taken from us unjustly.
- Justice: A likely tale.
- Justice: You have not paid for your crime yet, mortal.
- Nathaniel: Still stewing over that, are you?
- Justice: You have been freed, but you have not offered penance.
- Nathaniel: Isn't being forced to listen to you, penance enough?
- Nathaniel: Do you do anything besides ponder what is just and unjust?
- Justice: It is not all I do. It does, however, define my being.
- Nathaniel: So you were born just? A little, self-righteous baby of justice crawling around the Fade?
- Justice: I was not born. I simply am.
- Nathaniel: Will you ever need to switch bodies, Justice?
- Justice: I did not even wish to possess this one. Why would I switch to another?
- Nathaniel: You might need to. Unless you wish to look even more obviously like a corpse.
- Justice: I...would prefer not to think of it.
- Justice: This... thing you spoke of. Switching bodies.
- Nathaniel: Not a favorite topic of yours, I take it?
- Justice: Would such a thing be permitted? Would it not be considered... abominable?
- Nathaniel: If they're dead, it's not as if they need the body, Justice.
- Justice: But I can still feel the man who once lived. I know his life, his... It is not just a body.
- Nathaniel: That's...good, isn't it? I'd rather you felt that way.
- Justice: Perhaps you are right.
- Nathaniel: What if you found a living body to possess?
- Justice: Even if I knew how, I would not possess the living. Such is an act for demons.
- Nathaniel: What if the person were willing?
- Justice: Why would a mortal ever allow such a thing?
- Nathaniel: For life. For love. Perhaps together, you can do what they cannot do alone. If you gave instead of taking, I would consider you no demon.
- Justice: It is...something to consider. Thank you, Nathaniel.
- Nathaniel: What happens when this body of yours...expires?
- Justice: How long does such a process take?
- Nathaniel: I don't know. Can you still walk around once you're simply bones?
- Justice: So I'm led to believe, yes.
- Nathaniel: That is incredibly disturbing.
- Justice: You appear to have a preoccupation with beverages, dwarf. Why is that?
- Oghren: "Beverages?"
- Justice: I refuse to call them "spirits." It is a humiliating word for your drink.
- Oghren: Oh, you mean the booze! You should try it!
- Justice: If it makes one act like you, I think not.
- Oghren: Your loss!
- Oghren: Now that you have a physical body, what do you plan to do with it?
- Justice: Serve justice, as I always have.
- Oghren: I know what I'd do if I suddenly became a complete man.
- Justice: You are alluding to something. I know not what.
- Oghren: You can't be that stupid.
- Justice: We have work to do.
- Oghren: Technically, you're dead, right?
- Justice: Yes. Technically.
- Oghren: How does everything work? How do you grip your sword, for example?
- Justice: I do not know. I just do. Magic, I suppose.
- Oghren: And... er... everything works? Everything's intact? All the plumbing?
- Justice: You are alluding to something. I know not what.
- Oghren: Oh, come on!
- Justice: You speak often of bodily functions.
- Oghren: (Grunts) Not half as often as they happen.
- Justice: But why this preoccupation? I have a mortal body, yet it provides me no such amusement.
- Oghren: You have a dead mortal body. Try a living one sometime, and then we'll talk.
- Justice: Possess a living host? I would never!
- Oghren: Tough break. Enjoy the corpse love.
- Oghren: You have memories, right? Kristoff's memories.
- Justice: Yes.
- Oghren: And Kristoff was married? You have memories of that, yes?
- Justice: Yes.
- Oghren: Aha! So you must know what I'm talking about!
- Justice: Must I?
- Oghren: Come on! Kristoff must have buttered the southern pony in his day.
- Justice: I do not believe Kristoff has ever seen a southern pony, let alone buttered it. What does that even mean?
- Oghren: (Sigh) Nothing. It means nothing.
- Sigrun: Sometimes, you twitch uncontrollably.
- Justice: Do I? It must be an interaction between me and Kristoff's decaying body.
- Sigrun: It's like you're dancing. Ooh, we should set you to music.
- Justice: Has it occurred to you that I may be... self-conscious about this twitching?
- Sigrun: Oh, sorry. Are you?
- Justice: No.
- Sigrun: Here's your dagger back.
- Justice: Did I drop this?
- Sigrun: Oh, no. I nicked it from your belt. Old habits die hard, you know.
- Justice: Stealing is wrong.
- Sigrun: Only if you get caught. And need I remind you that I wasn't caught?
- Justice: I have tied my dagger to my belt. Should you try to steal it again, the rope will remind you that stealing is wrong.
- Sigrun: But... er, you just told me I can no longer steal it. Why would I even try?
- Justice: I...
- Sigrun: Anyway, here's your ring back.
- Justice: Am I correct in hearing that you are dead, dwarf?
- Sigrun: In a manner of speaking, yes.
- Justice: The body I inhabit is dead, as well.
- Sigrun: I... don't think that's quite the same thing, my friend.
- Justice: How is it different?
- Sigrun: Excuse me? How is what different?
- Justice: How is your death different from mine?
- Sigrun: My death was symbolic. I entered the Legion and thus my old life ended. But I imagine death will catch up with me soon enough, don't you worry.
- Justice: I do not worry. I was simply curious.
- Justice: So you believe you will die soon.
- Sigrun: Won't we all?
- Justice: I will not die. Not as you die.
- Sigrun: Spirits such as yourself can be slain in this world. Maybe you can, too.
- Justice: That... is a disturbing thought.
- Sigrun: Glad to be of service!
- Velanna: Ugh... your skin it's peeling.
- Justice: Oh really? I didn't notice.
- Velanna: Can I give you a poultice? Anything that can help?
- Justice: No, I thank you for the offer, but Kristoff's body is dead. There is nothing that can be done.
- Velanna: I shant hope for the smell to improve then?
- Justice: No, you probably shouldn't.
- Velanna: What will happen to you once Kristoff's body has fully decayed?
- Justice: I do not know. Perhaps I will be drawn back to the Fade?
- Velanna: Or remain here, bound to the tiny motes of dust that once were Kristoff.
- Justice: Do you think that's possible?
- Velanna: I know less about this than you. How securely is your spirit bound to this body? Can you leave it?
- Justice: I could, if I chose to.
- Velanna: Do you want to leave it?
- Justice: I... do not know anymore.
- Velanna: It seems you actually like this world.
- Justice: I do. I have had experiences I cannot even begin to explain.
- Velanna: A pity that you'll soon fall apart.
- Justice: I could find and inhabit another corpse. A female body might offer a different perspective, wouldn't you think?
- Velanna: If I die in your presence, you stay away from my body, you hear me?
- Justice: Your objection is noted.
- Justice: This thing you did, the murders of those men in the forest...
- Velanna: What of it?
- Justice: What you did was wrong. You must make amends.
- Velanna: And to whom should I make these amends? Those humans are dead, if you'll recall.
- Justice: You must make amends to humans. It was your condemnation of their race that led to your folly.
- Velanna: I wouldn't expect that to occur anytime soon.
- Justice: Why do you believe that atonement is unnecessary?
- Velanna: By the Creators! This again?
- Justice: You murdered humans because you believed they had wronged you, yet they had not.
- Velanna: Humans have wronged my kind plenty.
- Justice: Yet they were innocent of this.
- Velanna: Don't speak of what you do not understand, spirit!
- Justice: You are correct that I do not understand, Velanna. Help me to understand.
- Velanna: (Sigh) There is... so much history between my kind and humans, Justice. Where would I begin?
- Justice: You can only be responsible for your actions, your judgment. Does the same not apply to them?
- Velanna: You may be right. I don't know.
- Justice: And the atonement?
- Velanna: I will atone when they do.
- Velanna: What sort of atonement would be appropriate?
- Justice: You have reconsidered, then?
- Velanna: I am simply curious to hear what you think would be suitable.
- Justice: Teach them. Show these humans what they are so carelessly destroying.
- Velanna: And if they do not listen?
- Justice: Then you have done what you could.
- Velanna: It's... worth thinking about.
