Alistair: The unraveler is nearly ready for its first field test. We've identified six locations with differing levels of ambient magic in the outlying areas-- it should be illuminating to see how it performs in each. I'm assigning you to the team conducting these tests.
Kyra: ...I see.
Kyra: They asked you to put some distance between me and Tiara, didn't they.
Alistair: [looking awkward] Ahh, Kyra--
Kyra: It's fine. I'll do the tests. They're right, I should stay clear of the labs for awhile.
[Alistair smiles and puts a hand on Kyra's shoulder]
Alistair: Good. I'm sure you'll do great.
