"You will die beneath the blade of the Sardak Champion, as all primates before you have done, and I will use your crystal to gain power over my father the Emperor, and rise above my fated role.""Lylyth, you traitorous-!""Goodbye, primate. I found your company... amusing. I hope I will find your death equally so."
"You're nothing but a handful of trouble, and you've been trying to get me killed to get your hands on this crystal all day.""Please, primate! You do not understand! I sought your crystal shard, it is true! I had hoped to use it to overthrow my father the Emperor, but without it, my life in this city is surely forfeit!""If you weren't a lady I would have already run this sword through you! I'll take you with me, Lylyth-""Oh, primate!""-but I'm keeping a close eye on you."
"Looks like those soldiers are out for blood on account of me! Come on, let's go-""Wait, primate! The sacred mine-pit of the Sardaks is this way!""My friends Zorr, Chull, and Xotol are hiding with the human slaves. I have to find them before we make our move on the pit."
"The conquered kings? We do not need them, primate! Come-""You and me against all those guards? I don't think so, Lylyth. Even with this crystal, we'll need all the help we can get to free Grug and get out of here in one piece.""Go and get your kings, if you must. I will meet you when your friend is freed.""Where do you think you're going?""I must arrange our passage out of the city!""Oh, no you don't. You're staying with me so I can keep an eye on you."
"Mind if I pop in?""Intruders! Chull, mighty Xotol, to arms!""Hold, Zorr! It is but the outlander!""Raaaargh!""Good to see you all again!""Maikadams! You have survived the Sardak arena!""That's not all, sir. I've recovered the shard of the crystal-""Truly? That is wonderful news, Maikadams! You are indeed the one who will save us all!"
"-and I've brought the Sardak princess as well.""What?""Outlander, how could you?""Raaaargh!"
"Now hold on, fellas! She may be a backstabbing snake-in-the-grass, but she's on our side for the time being, and I can't let you-""Stand aside, friend Mike! The daughter of the Emperor must answer for his genocide of my people!""And mine!""Raaaargh!"
