Metara is - was - such a sweetheart. He had a kindness in him that I lacked. When I... when I cast Cleverly out... Metara stayed my hand. I will forever be indebted to him - if he hadn't, who knows what I would've done...?
Mmmyeah Metara was nice, so what? Lots of people are nice and aren't subservient to people like Narke, Cogito, Ihalas, et cetera. Am I supposed to think he's great for eating out of the hands of abusers?
