"Don't care. That's my role. I have bigger problems, as I'm an actual contestant. This will be the challenge you have to overcome. You know how we are when we're together, normally. Honest, unfailingly polite, with the occasional sarcastic comment dropped, because, well, it's true. This will be much different. People will lie to you. All the time. But they will believe the lies, because they've lied to themselves. Everyone who shows up to compete has successfully lied to themselves that they don't want to be the Traitor, or a second Traitor, including myself. But what is appealing about this to many, is that this is possibly a limited time endeavor, that a second traitor will only last so long as the House has two Primuses. Augustina worked up something with me which culminated at Tribunal. The only reason I agreed is because it was on someone outside of the House. This is so very different. This could be her trick on the entire House, on every Tytalus. That she doesn't trust herself enough to be the judge says quite a bit."
