Tearjerker / Queen of Shadows

  • Jade doesn't let it show, but she really misses her family and friends.
  • After their birth, no Shadowkhan is allowed to see the Queen unless they earn the privilege by centuries of devoted service. And the Queen is their mother. Jade can't help but find it harsh.
  • Hiruzen's Anger Born of Worry when Jade's botched escape attempt almost kills her, and Jade's resulting Heroic B.S.O.D. from the same.
