Heinrich replied, "Again you have a severe misunderstanding. One that could be unfortunately very unhealthy for you, if you continue to make this misunderstanding.
Mayor Largonel I am not your employee.
I am sorry if Ryuk in his delusions convinced you that I somehow was an employee of yours. I was neither his employee nor yours.
While i have discussed the many values I provide Coral City, you have again implied I somehow owe you vessels.
If so…how many vessels did Ryuk tell you that I promised I would make for him? Did he say 5, did he say 10? Did he have any specifics? Or did he simply tell you that I would live here as your living factory for the sheer pleasure of it, until Ryuk had a fleet to rival all his enemies?"
Heinrich noticed that Lucia had not actually had any food sent for. After asking him if he wanted food, and he requested food, Lucia had not budged an inch to summon an aide, call it in on a commcrystal or anything. Heinrich sat back into his chair, already seeing that this new Mayor did not understand at all the respects to be shown a member of the Kasanthian secret police. Ryuk was a fool who didn’t understand the need for Respect. Lucia, however had grown up in Kasanth, and therefore knew the importance of Respect and acts of Respect to their culture. And she was doing a deep deep disrespect…but Heinrich knew he would gain nothing by bringing it to her attention. He allowed his stomach to rumble but said nothing about it.
Instead he continued speaking about the issue of Ships vs. Da’uhnb Experiments.
"I will not accept your ghaz because there was never any agreement to pay me in ghaz.
My point is that I have provided tangible value to this Coral City…a tangible value you would quickly lose if I were to simply stop my many valuable types of work.
I have already amassed enough of a resource in the form of eight Nightmare Submersibles that I have delivered to the Kasanthian Federation over the past months. At least in Ryuk’s defense, the idea of Nightmare subs is brilliant, and I was happy to pass along the designs to the military authority that I serve…and that you serve Mayor Largonel.
Speaking of which, Ryuk greatly upset the neighboring Lord Mada. You must reach out to Lord Mada, and mend those bridges. Lord Mada is respected by Grand Magi Orloc Nightshade. And you would do well to fix the many offenses that Ryuk did to Lord Mada. Your first step will be reaching out to Lord Mada and HUMBLY asking for an audience."
Before Lucia could reply, Heinrich continued.
"I will continue to educate the Warphens, in the proper ways of the Kasanthian Faith as you currently do not have anyone who is trained to do so.
The work on more vessels is over, but now you must decide if you will give me access to the Da’uhnb Queen’s body…?"
