"Would you care to spar? If you have no combat training, you could always throw rocks at me."
"If you are too busy, I can patrol in your stead."
"Before becoming a Shepherd, I was right hand to Basilio, West-Khan of Regna Ferox."
"I hope to truly master the sword...but something might be throwing off my hand. Maybe if I...steadied myself around women, that would do the trick."

"I think you're the one I was sent here to find. You know Summoner, yes? I'm here to deliver a hello. Now that I have, I will leave." (Greeting from friend)
"You're here again. Why? What have I done to deserve this attention? I have no wealth, no power. Nothing but my skills as a swordsman. What? You value my presence? You find my help...reassuring? No one has ever said that to me before, but I am glad my presence gives you strength. Understood. I shall be your bodyguard, then. I will stay by your side for as long as you want me."
