"Your heart has softened, Kida. A thousand years ago, you would have slain them on sight.
A thousand years ago, the streets were lit and our people did not have to scavenge for food at the edge of a crumbling city!
The people are content.
They do not know any better! We were once a great people. Now we live in ruins. The kings of our past would weep if they could see how far we have fallen.
If these outsiders can unlock the secrets of our past, perhaps we can save our future.”
