  • "You must keep your mind strong to withstand the ever present whispers from the empress. Weaker minds will fall to her will without even noticing."
  • "The empress has spies everywhere."
  • "You never know who can actually be trusted. Unless you're me; then you know."
  • "The empress I served was also frightened and paranoid. Ultimately it was her fear that lead to her demise."
Conversation with Xaril the Poisoned Mind
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: How does it feel to go rogue a second time, swarmkeeper? Your empress was also gripped by paranoia, was she not?
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: Grand Empress Zek'hara masked her true intentions behind the guise of matronly worry. She claimed her overbearing ways were necessary to protect us.
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: When she tried to forbid the swarm, it was to prevent, as she put it, "a senseless loss of life."
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: In reality, she was obsessed with control. She aspired to stay in power long past her time, and was willing to sacrifice our eternal cycle to achieve that. We had no choice but to end her.
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: How does it feel? I have no regrets, if that is what you are asking. I am honored to serve the will of the Klaxxi.
Hisek the Swarmkeeper says: And having seen what Grand Empress Shek'zeer is doing to our land... I need no convincing.
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: Of course.
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: I served Shek'zeer for a time, you know. Before I was preserved. Her madness is nothing so rational as ambition.
Xaril the Poisoned Mind says: She trusts no one. Paranoia gnaws at her mind. She is driven by fear unrelenting.
