"The Order of Nald'thal might dislike us greatly for breaking ties; we are now a free entity, and they have no control over us. I would not be surprised if they encouraged the Flames to pursue us as a cult.
The Eminence does not discriminate the magic users it employs. I know Gridania and the Holy See of Ishgard have different views on sorcery. Especially when it leans toward the Black. Witch-hunts are still common. I detached the new Crescent Eminence from the Order of Nald'thal for this reason - so we could not be traced."
"I protect my members, Virella. I care for them, deeply. Because it is the people they want to help."
