* '''Exploited''': Kate is well aware of Avaril's monologing. In order to get the big bad to back down, she decides to get Avaril going while the big bad is listening, in order to make the big bad agree with Avaril and give up his plans.
** Alternatively, Avaril's sheer long-windedness and smug condescension bore the villain to death.

Added DiffLines:

**When elves walk, flowers grow at their feet. When they march to battle birds gather round cheering them. When they shoot their bows their bows ''sing'' instead of just twanging like a human bow. And when an elf dies in battle, all the ravens come and seeing it is an elf refrain from eating him and lovingly cover him with flowers.

* '''Downplayed''': Elves are around equal terms with humans, but there is plenty of argument when an elf is simply talking about how much better they are. Most people don't bother getting on elves if they're just talking about races as small talk, though.

* '''Downplayed''': Elves have a tendency to ramble on, but they are around equal terms fair to all. Avaril will often include things in these monologues like "Now, the human general Leo once came up with humans, but there is plenty of argument when an elf is simply talking about how a much better they are. Most people plan for the war than the elves did" and "your style was better than elves for sure, but there are few things i would like to suggest" that show that the elves don't bother getting on elves if they're just talking about races as small talk, though.think they are the only ones who can be great.
