So trade my debt to a master I hate with a debt to one that I love?[Vesemir: I’d get you your lake house, all your wine. Anything and everything. Yours.]
You all imagine there are better fates for you out there in the world. But out there, you have nothing. But here, we offer strength. Purpose. Respect. A chance at surviving the very horrors waiting out there. If you don’t want that, then this is wasted on you.
The only thing keeping men from hunting us are the scarier beasts we keep away. Humans die quick, so they spend their lives fearing and hating. Ask the dwarves or your elf friend. Men will always need monsters. Now, so do we.[to Vesemir]
