Thorn: Not to clear you or Northwind of any responsibility, but . . . I am surprised and disturbed that it took the government so long to catch this.
Kale: Are you? How long does it usually take them to catch someone like me?
Thorn: . . . I don’t think there’s ever been anyone like you.
Kale: Yeah. That’s what I thought.
Thorn: Although I might be a little fuzzy on the timeline — at the time this made the news, I was in the burn ward.
Kale: . . . huh. Um, when I was caught, I’d been working for Northwind for over five years. If it helps, the Ceannic government was on to me for at least two.
The man I eventually found out was the agent observing me . . . A few months after Calyx got a rabbit, he was the new vet.
