Intermediate dialogue 1
Miku: Ha! That's what you get for crossing me.
Keiran Thackeray: It isn't healthy to be driven by anger like that. Whatever the White Mantle have done, is it worth letting them have such influence over you?
Miku: Well, maybe I'm only upset with myself. For running away when I should not have.
Keiran Thackeray: What do you mean?
Miku: Oh, that's a story for another time, perhaps.
Intermediate dialogue 2
Keiran Thackeray: Looks like they've holed up in this camp.
Miku: I'm certain we'll find what we're looking for here. You up to it?
Keiran Thackeray: It won't be easy, but together we can do this. I'll keep you covered, but I need you in there sowing chaos. Find their weakness!
Intermediate dialogue 3
Miku: Nicely done! It looks like you can rise to the occassion, after all.
Keiran Thackeray: Thanks...I think. Oh, nevermind. Let's search the camp.
Intermediate dialogue 4 (White Mantle Missive)
- He has spoken. You must lead your forces into the depths of the Maguuma Jungle. Shed your mantle and disappear, but do not fall silent. The word of the Unseen must be spoken. While your men disperse, we will lead an assault on Beetletun in the guise of the Shining Blade. We will cast doubt over the usurpers, shake their foundation, and become the poison that seals the fate of the traitor, Salma.
Intermediate dialogue 5
Keiran Thackeray: This is worse than I thought. If only there was some way to be everywhere, to end all of this!
Miku: You know that isn't possible. Keiran, I think you want to take care of everything, and that leaves you with the power to do nothing.
Miku: You need to make a decision. I think that you can be a strong man, and a capable one. If you show your strength, you won't need to rely on others. They'll rely on you.
Keiran Thackeray: If the White Mantle within the Maguuma Jungle flee, then I have to trust that my allies will defend Lion's Arch.
Keiran Thackeray: So we go to Beetletun. Those people need us, and we will not fail them.
Miku: That's the fire I was hoping for. Well said! Now let's get going.
Only after completing the quest for the first time.
Gwen: Something about him has changed. This isn't the...always doting, sometimes insufferable Keiran. He was always trying too hard.
Gwen: And now he's...I don't know where. But he's not here. Have I lost another person I'm close to? How much more can I stand to lose?
Gwen: How can people stand to let someone get close to them, when it's so simple for life to come and take it all away?
Gwen: Is this the kind of person I want to be? Shutting myself off and being afraid to expose my feelings. Maybe happiness is better than feeling nothing at all. Maybe it's worth the pain.
Gwen: If he can change, then maybe...maybe I can change, too.
