An Ascended Kelari! Well! I, of course, would not doubt that I would meet one. After all, if you're going to be picking the best souls to return, why wouldn't you return a Kelari?
But, I am still glad we have met. As you can see, our fortunes have been much reduced, our isles replaced by this rickety town. But, with the help of the Defiants, we will push forward, and one day we may take back the isles from the corruption of the cults.
You are an Ascended, hmm? Well, let me get a look at you.
I'm glad you've found your way here. This land is strange, and crude, but though we have lost the isles, we have not lost what makes us Kelari.
Not everyone in Defiant likes that we are here, but we have never sought the approval of others and aren't very well about to start now.
