vive-la-johto asked: Mathis: If I may madame, you risked much taking the path on which you lead us now and I much admire you for zhat *Salutes*. I am told you ahve a husband however. How is he taking to zhis revelation assuming you ahve told him? And what is it zhat pushed you to defect?
Thank you; I take it that you’ve risked as much. I also take it that you must have been from Johto. It was common knowledge that I have a husband who distinctly lacks common knowledge. He did not know that I was the leader of Kanto’s armies, and I endeavored to keep it that way. He is a kind and innocent man that I wouldn’t think of troubling with such worries. Until now, my men have sustained the facade of a bakery when he visited. Even now, he believes that I have simply moved my supposed bakery business to a delivery format. As we’ll be working together, I expect that you will do your utmost to maintain his ignorance. Beyond it being a favor to me, is a matter of his, and our faction’s personal safety that you do so.
My decision is common sense. We know very little about these monsters and their powers. In fear we avoided them for centuries, and in our new arrogance, we presume to utilize them as tools. Such exploitation, in history, has always led to disaster. Morals and follies of war aside, humanity is taking a risk playing master to this level.
…I have many reasons to believe that the disaster can be both prevented and subverted. My time and research in monster-human interaction has shown a great potential for symbiosis and growth. I see a future in which monsters and people work to benefit each other. Perhaps I will tell you all more later, but now is not the time to elaborate further.
Please excuse me. I have many things I must attend to. There will be a briefing tomorrow at 0800 hours.
