"Mais Carn, comment... Merde."

Koali fiddles with something for a moment.

"But Carn, how... Ah, that's better. But Carn, where did you learn to interpret that 'doytch' gibberish?"

(Oh I know what Merde means Koali, why are you swearing at us?)

"You think Angleans are ONLY bloodthirsty psychopaths? We know a lot of things. A lot of pre-war things, including translations for some of the old languages."

(It was to indicate that Koali sometimes speaks in the wrong language, which bothers him.)

"So it wasn't gibberish?"

George raises his hand.
"Ich spreche ein Bisschen Deutsch, Ich war in Anglea in meiner Jugend erzogen. Meine Eltern wollten mich lernen, die Erziehung ihrer Jugend..."

Bard looked puzzled.

"I have no idea what he said but this could help with clues if this Mann person speaks a lot of this strange Doytch language"

"So, when are we making sail?"

"I vaguely remember something about lightning guns... I think they called it Blood-Crag, or Lightning War..."

(Blitzkrieg, y'all. Koali isn't exactly a history buff.)

Koali isn't exactly a history buff.

(Note: Anachronism is a side effect. That, and Koali isn't from around here. He came from a secret Yeshan research lab.)

Upon seeing the confused faces, Koali gets confused as well.

George pulls down his shirt collar to reveal a rusty bit of machinery implanted directly onto his neck. With some effort, he turns a knob on the side of it onto 'English'. George gulps.
"I speak a little German, I was educated in Anglea in my youth. My parents wanted me to learn the education of their youth ... "
George glances round at the horrified glances at the implant, and waits for someone to ask a question.

"Ouch, haven't seen one of those suckers in a long time. Last I saw one was almost ten years ago. A surgeon, of questionable reliability, was offering to implant one of those things for 2,000 crowns by the docks in Kinforth. I never actually saw anybody go in there."

"I could try I guess, too dangerous really, if I accidentally pull it out I could die...it's not just that though..."
George pulls up his shirt, showing that the majority of his lower torso has been replaced with machinery, and where his heart would normally be there is what appears to be a motor of some sort. Upon closer inspection, his leg appears to be prosthetic. George takes off one of his gloves to show a robotic hand, and removes his goggles to show a rapidly moving red optic lens."
George starts to explain without being asked.
"Airship crash, about 5 years back. It's amazing those scavs managed to get me out of there alive, but I'm pretty sure they thought I was dead, just trying to loot my armour. Still, when they realised that I was alive they sent me to some Angelan doctor that was staying in the next town over, don't let anyone ever tell you that there aren't any good Arashi. He fixed me up free of charge, though I'm pretty sure he was experimenting with me...still...here I am..."
