(Elen was lying on the table suppressing her laughter.)
Tigre: “... Well, aren't they reliable?
Elen: “Would you not fear the seven would turn their blade against you? They wield a strength greater than one thousand soldiers. No matter what, it would be impossible for you to win.”
Tigre: “I would think it best to have an excellent subordinate, even if they were stronger than me, for a long time.
