|Thief||So who are you?|
|Thief||And why are you here?|
|Raven||To trick death.|
|Raven||Actually, that's happening, well, your four-dimensional brain couldn't comprehend a word for it, so we'll just say that it's happening "elsewhere."|
Why do I feel like that didn't answer my question?
|Raven||Let's start this over.|
(becomes a totem) I'm Raven, the local totemistic representation of trickery. I've entered into a mostly legit contract to bring you back from the brink of death.
There's one problem though.
|Thief||I'm an elf.|
We believe the gods made themselves in our image because we're so damn good lookin'.
I don't believe in a totem-based divinity.
|Raven||Hey, neither does that Cleric kid, but he ain't picky.|
And you shouldn't either.
|Raven||Without my help, you'll be stuck here forever.|
|Pans out to Thief's surroundings, filled with mounds of golden money...|
|Thief||You don't know me very well, do you.|
