Someone as smart as you must have a theory about the stolen dowry. "Indeed, I have seventeen distinct theories, ranked from "most viable" to "highly improbable." But I'm not ready to share any of them just yet. I need more data to analyze. If you and Zeira learn anything else, please be sure to let me know."
- Can't you make an educates guess? "A true genius never guesses. Not when every problem, no matter how complicated, can always be solved thought dedication and analysis. I'll figure out who actually stole the dowry. It's just a matter of time."
- Tell me about the Thazahrr Cartel. "A number of merchant conglomerates operate out of Abah's Landing, using their wealth and power to influence the city. The Thazahrr Cartel is one such entity. I regret to say that I worked for them for a time, before I found a place in the guild."
- "Have you read the latest Investigator Vale book? I'd never leave such an obvious clue behind. That's just sloppy work on the part of the villain, and I detest sloppy work. I have no doubt that I would be able to outsmart Vale. I'm just that good."
- "The Thazahrr Cartel brought me to Abah's Landing, but the odds of me attaining my full potential are astronomically better if I'm part of the guild. After all, the Iron Wheel has eliminated most of the competition for me."
