Black Mage feigns having a metaphorical battle from within.
|Black Mage||See, the guy you want is someone else. He's a jerk, you'll love killing him.|
Oh good, you're sitting now. How pleasant for my eyes.
|Greed||Hey, I'm a very busy personification of man's struggle with his own greed. I don't have time for this.|
|Black Mage||No, see, Thief is the one you need to talk to.|
|Greed||Look, are you going to have an introspective metaphorical battle with your own base urges, or do I have to eat you?|
|Black Mage||That's... an unusual choice.|
|Greed||I've got to appear to a banker on his death bed in five, so make it quick, will ya?|
Um. Oh, I'm greedy. And, uh, nauseous...? Yeah. What a wasted life. Woe is unto he who is I.
|Black Mage||Er, my wife, who is completely real, oh, how I guess I've neglected her.|
|Black Mage||I'll just change my ways now. Done!|
|Greed||Well, that sure sounds like an internalized battle against one's own demons.|
|Black Mage||It is. It totally is.|
Wait! Wait, I think I... yes, that's a breakthrough whew!
|Greed||Are you sure? Maybe I should eat you anyway just to be safe.|
|Black Mage||No. No, I'm good. Thanks.|
|Greed||You sure? I've still got a minute.|
|Black Mage||It would be, uh, greedy of me to ask that of you. Go on ahead.|
