The people of Seaquen will believe anything they hear – except, of course, the truth. I do not claim to be a supporter of the Shahalesti, but I know that they were not to blame for the attempted teleportation of the Wayfarer’s ship. Unless Giorgio was working for the Shahalesti, but considering the charred corpses we found shortly after his disappearance, this seems unlikely.
For some reason my companions seem to want us to withhold the truth from the people. This makes no sense to me, since it only would allow Giorgio’s plan to be successful, at least in part. But I suppose lying is what comes naturally to these folk – the noble types like Orvas (good-natured as he may be) and Dakers, and criminals like Rand. Sometimes lying is the best course of action, I know that, but this is not one of those cases. How many times have we lied without need? Or killed without just cause? I truly believe our intentions are good, but sometimes I wonder if we’re not the good guys.
What makes us so special? What sets us apart from any other thugs and thieves?
But now we’re off the find the home of the rats, which we hope will reveal some information to us. All we can do is hope.
Spirits, help me.
