Valeera: Lady Menethil, may I ask if... oh, forgive me. Should I refer to you as princess, or are you now a queen?
Calia: Lady Menethil is fine. Calia is even better. I gave up my claim to the throne long ago.
Valeera: Understood. King Anduin has spoken highly of you, and I know he bears guilt over what befell you in the Arathi Highlands.
Calia: The king is a good man. I do not blame him for what happened. All the guilt lies with Sylvanas Windrunner.
Valeera: We have much in common, I think. Both caught between two worlds, belonging fully to neither. Yet being able to move between them offers certain advantages.
Calia: I thought to be a bridge between the living and the undead. My first attempt ended in sorrow. But I have not given up hope, Lady Sanguinar.
Valeera: I am most pleased to hear that. But please, I am no lady. My friends call me Valeera, Lady Menethil. Excuse me... Calia.
When I worked with King Wrynn to arrange a meeting between the living and the undead in Arathi, I thought I understood the Forsaken. Only too late did I realize how little I knew.
But after being raised into undead myself, I have begun to see the depths of what they have endured. With the help of Lilian Voss, I have found ways to aid those who feel abandoned and alone.
Right now, the whole world trembles beneath the specter of death. And fear, left unchecked, will consume every soul it touches.
I cannot allow that to happen. Not to the people of Lordaeron, nor to any who fight for the good of Azeroth.
The war taught me many lessons. Who I could trust... and who I could not.
Through her actions, Sylvanas has proven that she doesn't care about the Forsaken's fate. But we have endured too much to allow her betrayal to unravel what we have built.
<Lilian peers at you through narrow eyes.>
You think my words harsh, $p? Did you willfully do her bidding? Turn a blind eye upon her endless atrocities?
Windrunner chose her path--and her allies. We all did.
Once, I would have sought vengeance. Retribution. But now, I care only that the Forsaken have a future. And for that, we need the right leaders in place.
I will lend my voice to the Horde council and speak for my people. For a time, at least.
