'''Jack Slash''': I see. From your earliest memory, what was that? In Marquisís home? No? Being taken ''home'' by the heroes and heroines that would become your false family? Ah, I saw that change in expression. That would be your earliest memory, and you found yourself struggling to adjust to your new home, to school and life without your supervillain daddy. By the time you did figure those things out, you had other worries. I imagine your family was distant. So you struggled to please them, to be a good girl, not that it ever mattered. [[WellDoneSonGuy There was only disappointment]]... I know these sorts of things and what to look for because Iíve met others like you. Thatís what Iím offering you. A chance to be with similar people for the first time in your life, a chance to be yourself, to have everything you want, and to be with me. I suspect youíve never been around someone who actually paid attention to you... I imagine they were telling you ĎNo, you arenít. You can be good'?... But you didnít believe them, did you, Amelia? Youíve spent years telling yourself the opposite. Youíre a bad person, youíre destined to be bad, by circumstance and blood. And even though you didnít believe them, youíll believe me when I tell you no, you arenít a good person, but thatís okay. Isnít it unfair? Through no fault of your own, the blood in your veins is the blood of a criminal, and thatís affected how your family looks at you. Youíve been saddled with feelings that arenít your fault, and doomed to a life without color, enjoyment or pleasure. Donít you deserve to follow your passions? [[HeroicFatigue A decade and a half of doing what others want you to do, doing what]] ''[[HeroicFatigue society]]'' [[HeroicFatigue wants you to do, havenít you earned the right to do what you really desire, just this once?]] So Iíll offer you a deal. If you indulge yourself, weíll surrender. I wonít even make you do it now. Just look me in the eye, and honestly tell me youíll do it. Drop all of the rules youíve set yourself. I donít care what you do after, you can wipe your sisterís memories, you can kill yourself, you can run away or come with us. [[PyrrhicVictory And your side wins]]... Three and a half words: ĎIíll do ití, and we leave the city.

->'''[[ManipulativeBastard Jack Slash]]''': Whatís holding you back?

Imagine my surprise when I found out your relation to [[AffablyEvil Marquis.]] In my last visit to [[CityOfAdventure Brockton Bay]], I crossed paths with each of the major players. I met the man.

->"Rock... ''look at me.'' "Justice" - I can't think of a word more loved by the people. It does have a nice ring to it... however. Without ever using your own strength, you seek the death of others at the hands of someone else. Well, your justice sound pretty ''rotten'' to me. The stench of a bloodbath...wouldn't you agree? Don't look at me like that, Rock. After all, I'm not ''upset'' with you! It's just that of all people, I never expected to hear those words from you. I'm... amused. That's all this is. In the grand scheme of things, our lives are meaningless. They're light as air, much like a candy wrapper... There's two things to keep in mind when begging for your life. The first is to try and entertain the person holding a gun to your head, and the second is to give that person a convincing reason not to kill you.
