IC: Celphrithia, Dravvenica, and Shredder - Mangaia (Tunnels)
"Then that's his loss," she responded. "Even if we don't end up coming to an agreement, this island is still home to an ample amount of individuals bearing grudges against the Koros, and I highly doubt that one village will satisfy them all forever, especially if their ire is directed towards one region in particular, such as your own. Convincing at least a fraction of them that this is a cause worthy of their time should not pose too much of an issue either way, and such a group would likely still make formidable allies in the event that the Legacy's forces eventually decided to... remove him and his comrades from the equation next."
Dravennica paused for a moment, taking the time to carefully examine her surroundings before daring to continue.
"From where I stand, however, it would be foolish not to at least consider my proposal. If the Piraka truly had enough servants of their own to do away with the village governments themselves, then they would've had no need to establish an alliance with Makuta's Legacy, or the Brotherhood of Ak'rei'an for that matter, and like it or not, it still took the combined efforts of both of those groups to gain control over Ko-Koro. And since those cultists are no longer our allies, we are now left with less numbers than before, and risk reprisal from the combined might of five other armies. True, we managed to buy ourselves some time by taking hostages, but how long do we have before they simply no longer care, and begin marching right on up to our doorstep? This is a question that I'd rather not know the answer to, and trust me, those six Skakdi won't be the ones who will be taking the brunt of the beating when it happens."
"Considering that both groups still require some form of assistance from one another, they need to find a way to redirect as much heat away from themselves as possible while they continue to bolster their ranks. And if a third were to fill the gap left by the Brotherhood, one seemingly unaffiliated with them, one our foes knew next to nothing about, and one focused around the sole purpose of attacking our enemies where it would hurt them the most, then granting my request would only serve to benefit their precious little alliance in the long run," she reasoned. "Especially since we'd essentially be making it all the more easier for them to be dealt with once the rest of our forces are in a position to strike."
