- "I assume Headmaster Zhan sent you. Well, let's have a look at you. Yes, the headmaster is a shrew judge of potential as well as a great Warrior. During the wars known in these lands as the Tengu Wars, General Zhan bested me on the battlefield. He saw something in me, then, and spared my life. I am sworn now to protect and serve him. If he wishes you trained, then trained you will be."
