"Darling, why would that concern me? I'm wealthy enough that I can pay somebody to worry on my behalf."
Carlotina - Being as she is my only blood relative in this God-forsaken backwater, she is rather dear to my heart. I could not hope for a more adorable niece.
Uthur - What a frightfully rude man he was, and he seemed to think he was my friend so that made it OK.
Justice - Dearly departed, her soul the victim of crimes that appall even me.
Magdalena - People seem so frightened of her. Personally, I find her sincerity very sweet.
Hannah - Very pleasant company, genteel and only a little bit frightening.
Hideaki - The kind of straight-laced competence that makes for a good leader. He'll get there eventually, and I'll support him when he does.
Rothstein - What a horrible little man. I can be patient, and one day I will punish you appropriately for threatening my family.
Susan - Charming to talk to. Also, I simply must acquire one of those little chairs of yours.
John - Too high status for me to simply buy his loyalty, which is a shame, as he would make a wonderful employee.
Darius - There is a special hell for people like you. I hope you suffer.
Sharpe - A joke, surely? How did this drunken, loud-mouthed, charmless thug of a redneck get into power?
The Molly - She has the soul of a muck-racking gutter journalist, which is to say that she is a genuine delight to listen to.
Faithe - There is potential here. Let us hope the locals don't ruin her with their vulgarity.
Jimmy - He shall be dead shortly, in the scheme of things. And I shall still be here, and good riddance to him.
Taylor - So young, and so fabulous for it. I can't help but like her.
Tye - Do you ever speak? I have nothing to say, because I have no idea who you actually are.
Silvia - Distinctly odd, and cleverer than people think. She's not a threat to me, so I see no reason to stop her spreading her influence.
Anton - I am onto him.
Asher - Very clever and very useful, and also currently pregnant and yet unmarried. I must make sure she's kept safe.
Jacob - He knows enough to be worth keeping around.
Darla - I'm sure she could be a good and kind woman if she put her mind to it. As it is, she's far to angry about things that don't matter.
