  • "Bloody hell," Kettle said, clearly angry. "Doesn't Habble Morning employ Verminocitors anymore?" [2]
  • "I didn't know him when he was in the Fleet miss, but..." Kettle took a slow breath his lips moving slightly, as if composing his answer before he spoke. Then he nodded and turned his eyes to her, his expression intent. "Miss Lancaster, Spirestone is heavy. Fire is hot. And the captain does his duty. No matter what it costs him. Understood?" — Kettle o Gwen Lancaster [6]
