Ver can't understand the motivations of others, the softness that kept them from going easy on certain members of enemy forces, why apologize to Angelkisses or offer her any sympathy when none of them had done a thing to stop her from maiming her. Why bother feeling bad now when the shit was already done, the complete consequences hadn't been felt but she knew it was harsher on her enemy than it was on herself.
Unifying groups, keeping peace and relations are important to her but as Will speaks welcoming the Exiles in she can't help but crinkle her muzzle in distaste at her sentiment. At this faulty game of companionship and wrongful peace, they would be friendly here and who was to say they wouldn't be going at each others throats right after or selling secrets and skills to preserve their strength. If the Exiles caught a disease than it was a blessing from whichever god they all worshiped, which wasn't to say they weren't ill in the mind as it was. Sick bastards with one hell of a inferiority complex despite getting barraged by practically half of Delos and Orcadia. She doesn't speak her opinions, not yet anyway.
Her eyes blink towards Kalina as she feels the woman's gaze against her face, she lazily scratches behind her ear as she ushers the child away as if she's ever harmed someone innocent. She's curious if Ryad ever told the younger or newer generation of Veilers exactly why she was the "enemy" or what they'd done to her kid. She doubts it, most things like that were ancient history tortures were nothing more than passing notes in time. A sad fact she couldn't stand them or do them without good reason. Willhemina speaks before her but it doesn't stop her from barking her own words ”If anyone even thinks of laying a paw on this kid i'll gut them myself and i'm sure a good majority of everyone here would do the same” the only peace she could extend was to children, the real victims of war and strife regardless of their alignment or upbringing. They deserved better.
”But to the topic of this meeting, why exactly would we share information and our clans well-being to enemies. We may be healers and under an "oath" right now but what's stopping us from using this information for our own benefit to hit an enemy while they're down?” she was careful with her words not wanting to spin thing precisely on the Exiles, which could be read as such. She was more than willing to use information and power to make a statement or to X out an enemy before they stood mighty over her groups. It was impossible to the think in the lens of peace when lately, the dynamics and conflicts were anything but.
