[9VH]: Alright, you wanna know about the Renegade Pearl so bad? Let me tell you bunch of [REDACTED] a story.
So we captured this upper-crust type from a Homeworld convoy, yeah? A Morganite or an Axinite or something. We had ‘er unbubbled and put in a cell for a bit of interrogation. She’s sittin’ there bein’ prissy and aloof, goin’ on about how this was an insult to a gem a’ her stature and her diamond was gonna hear about this, yadda yadda. And then the Renegade Pearl walks in to do the interrogation- and this prissy little upper-crust just flips out. Launches into a full-blown fit, calls ‘er a disgrace, an abomination, a traitor, a savage, an atrocity, a [REDACTED], a worthless, abhorrent defect that the diamonds would shatter if they were feelin’ merciful.
And you wanna know what the Renegade does? She walks right up to ‘er, looks ‘er straight in the eye, and says “Good.”
