Clera, reporting.

[Bellafae] This court is now in session, The Honourable Judge Haengemie presiding.
[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Wedilen] i was just passing through the undine hut and that dark cave.
[Wedilen] minding my own business, on my way to get grey pants.
[Wedilen] when suddenly i am attacked and brutaly beaten by Lilits undine servants
[Wedilen] I never even drew a weapon or made any agressive action whatsoever!
[Wedilen] She is responsible for those she commands. Do not let her get away with this.
[Wedilen] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Wedilen
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 90 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Lilit] This is utter nonsense.
[Lilit] I am to be held accountable for this fool entering a dangerous area?
[Lilit] I do not command my children to do anything.
[Lilit] They have their nature, and are true to it.
[Lilit] I was not even in the sanctuary since sun up...
[Lilit] This halfling simply wants to avoid responsibility for his own actions.
[Lilit] How can I be accused of doing something when I am not even present...
[Lilit] Think what you will about what I do and what I believe...
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Lilit] ...but if you feel this is a criminal act on my part, the law is out of control.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
[Haengemie] Wedilen, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Wedilen] when bartok sends his orga out to attack us, are we to beleive he is not reponsible for that?
[Wedilen] the commander takes responsibility for the actions of his troops
[Wedilen] Lilit is responsible for the actions of those she leads
[Wedilen] she is an evil servant of the undine
[Wedilen] as has already be established by this court
[Wedilen] the undine she leads do her dirty work for her
[Wedilen] but that does not make her less guilty
[Wedilen] she is still an enemy of puddleby
[Wedilen] as shurely as if she killed us herself
[Wedilen] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Wedilen
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Lilit] Either Wedilen's ego has gotten too big...
[Lilit] ...or he has become paranoid.
[Lilit] If he thinks I control my children in any way, he is wrong.
[Lilit] We share a link, but they do not serve me.
[Lilit] They are not slaves or soliders.
[Lilit] A mother is not a general, in any case.
[Lilit] His accusations that I serve the Darshak are untrue, and groundless.
[Lilit] He is simply unhappy that he fell in cave.
[Lilit] He wants to blame me for it.
[Lilit] And now he is trying for anything which will arouse your ire to me.
[Lilit] One would hope the principle of responsibility would be still be valued here.
[Lilit] I was not responsible for what Wedilen claims. Even he knows it.
[Lilit] Good jurors, do not encourage this type of shameless scapegoating.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Lilit] It cheapens this court.
[Lilit] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
