Mary did not like the People of Lyr, but she did at least respect their steadfastness. They had never once waivered in refusing the witches shelter or food or company. But now - in cravenly asking the witches for help - they had dropped their only virtue. It was outrageous! Being the youngest of the twelve, Mary had little power and her opinion was seldom asked for. Not that that ever held her back. “You can’t be serious! For years they’ve treated us worse than yellow snow! As soon as we’ve helped them against the giants, they’ll just banish us again.” “Mary. What we seek is not Lyr’s favor,” the eldest explained patiently. “We seek their fear and respect, and unwittingly they are going to help us seize it.”
— The Tame Giant – Meghilda Ro Patun
