Thorn: My Tiernan is a service pet. I got her as part of PTSD therapy — she helps me manage the symptoms.
And the PTSD is from the adventure that gave me the burns. So maybe you’re safe?
MThorn: Maybe! My Tiernan got me into adventuring — she gave me the magical item that unlocked my powers. Yours looks so much like . . . are you sure she can’t talk?
Thorn: I mean, not that I know of. How about it, girl? Have you been holding out on me?
