Sancho: (kneeling beside Ku’la) Does anybody ken what goblins do wi’ their daed?
[ Does anybody know what Goblins do with their dead?]
Bea: Do we really have time for this?
Sancho: She deserves whatever rites she’s due.
Bea: She’s an enemy!
Sancho: She’s a person!
Bradley: (with device) It,um… it says here that different clans have different rites, but most of the time they’re burned and their ashes stored in some special jar called an ung… ung-something that their families carry with them.
Bea: Well we can’t do that without risking being seen.
Sancho: Na, yer right, there. But what little I ken o’ goblins they dinnae care how you worship, just that you worship. So maybe we can bury her, put up a cairn. That’s what we do.
[No, you’re right, there. But what little I know of goblins, they don’t care how you worship, just that you worship. So maybe we can bury her, put up a cairn. That’s what we do.]
Niki: I can say a prayer over her.
Bea: Just… hurry up, okay? Please?
