JAN 31, 2560 // Makovich and Vettel discuss the hit operation's losses and the coming Banished force to the Mortal Reverie.
- Spartan Vedrana Makovich: I've been running ops with Windfall for years. Broadsword sorties on Requiem. Prowler corps maneuvers on a Kig-Yar purse-moon. Allied SOS strike on Brute raiding parties. Never once did I imagine I'd lose a squadmate to a straw-draw assassination gone south. What a mess.
- Spartan Bertold Vettel: Malik knew what the was volunteering for. They all did. It was worth the shot, Mako.
- Makovich: Was it? We kicked the hell out of the proverbial hornet's nest, and the hornets are mobilizing for some payback. If we lose our foothold at the Reverie... we lose the Ring.
- Vettel: There's a lot of lives at stake here. Some are suggesting we pull out and wait till the storm passes.
- Makovich: And go where Back to hiding in caves? Skulking around at night? No. We hold. We make the Banished bleed so that our sacrifices still mean something. Escharum can keep his head. We'll take his pride.
