MThorn: . . . Oh. Is this part of the “Embassy technically owns him” thing?

Thorn: Yeah.

He’s asking about your contract. Anything in particular I should or shouldn’t tell him?

Leif: Well . . .

Thorn (flashback): Wow, Leif, I’ve known you for almost a year and you still have to explain basic facts about servitude to me, that’s how unprepared I am!

Leif (flashback): You really went from “contracts, how do they work?” to “I could empty my life’s savings for you” in five minutes, huh?

Manager Ludolf (flashback): I’m not just gloating about how I’m allowed to hurt the Embassy “pets.” I’m gloating about how much it would upset Thorn that I’m allowed to hurt you.

Kale (flashback): I just spent five minutes on the Crystalpedia page about how your parents got into debt, and now I want to question your entire life story?

Leif (present): Do tell him it’s for totally valid financial reasons, and you will not elaborate. Don’t tell him any stories about me getting hurt.

Reminds me of the “types of misunderstandings” explained during Olive and Gloria’s storyline. Thorn “You do this too”, some combination of expecting the worst and overthinking cause trama. Besides summerfest, I do agree with Leif’s interpretations.
