Fates Supports/Niles Camilla
Niles: Lady Camilla, just the person I was looking for.
Camilla: Oh? Did you want to ask me something?
Niles: Yes. I'm curious... Why do you shower so much affection on Lord/Lady Avatar?
Camilla: What do you mean? I love Avatar! He's/She's a sweetie! Plus, he/she had a terrible childhood. I think he/she deserves a little kindness now!
Niles: As I suspected! Your so-called love is nothing more than pity. You're probably one of those people who brings home lost puppy dogs too.
Camilla: Of course I would! Who would leave a cute, little puppy out in the cold?
Niles: Heh heh...
Camilla: *gasp* You would, wouldn't you?! Niles, you're terrible!
Niles: There's a reason you fixate on helping poor, pathetic creatures!
Camilla: Is that so? And what's that?
Niles: You live a pathetic existence. You're trying to make yourself feel better!
Camilla: Niles? Get back here! You can't say something like that and run away! Coward!
Camilla: Niles! I've been looking everywhere for you! It's time for you to explain yourself!
Niles: Ah, I love it when you get all feisty. Your cheeks are turning red! Were you saying something? I can barely concentrate when you're like this!
Camilla: Enough! You better explain what you meant the other day when you said I was pathetic!
Niles: Fair enough. Lady Camilla, do you know why people love puppies?
Camilla: Because they're cute...?
Niles: No! It's because people want to be loved.
Niles: They want companionship—a person to come home to, and if they can't get it... They'll settle for a furry creature who'll greet them and slobber on their shoes. This is the same relationship you have with that lost, little puppy—Lord/Lady Avatar. You're miserable, so you shower him/her with affection, and that puppy slobbers back!
Camilla: Are you calling Avatar a dog? That's disgusting!
Niles: Oh, I like that hostile look on your face. It's giving me chills! Do you want to know where I came up with this theory? I'll tell you!
Camilla: You better!
Niles: My parents abandoned me in the slums of Nohr. I was raised by thieves and criminals. I learned fast. I did what had to be done to survive! So forgive me if I'm a little jealous. When I see someone who is oblivious to suffering, I like to give them an education. That moment when they discover their first taste of pain is pure bliss!
Camilla: Niles, you're a sad person.
Niles: Am I? For someone so sad, I'm having an outrageously good time!
Niles: Lady Camilla, I heard you were looking for me. You know I adore being summoned.
Camilla: The other day, you said you like to prey on people who've never known suffering.
Niles: Oh, yes. I like where this is going.
Camilla: Well, you were wrong to pick me!
Camilla: I know what you thought! She's royalty! She must be happy! Her life is perfect! You're wrong! I wasn't born in the slums, but my childhood wasn't all roses either.
Camilla: Oh. Didn't you know? Xander is the only one of my siblings born to the queen. The rest of us—Leo, Elise, and I—we're all children of King Garon's mistresses. Different mistresses, I might add. He loved to pit our mothers against each other.
Niles: I had no idea.
Camilla: Our mothers were the lowest of the low, trying to claw their way to a better status. Naturally, they used us as bait in all of their conflicts.
Niles: Lady Camilla, I'm—
Camilla: You said I was pathetic, and you were right! My mother loved me, but only as a pawn. Do I dote on Avatar? Yes, I do! I remember what it feels like to be alone!
Niles: I'm so sorry. I was wrong about you! You disguise your pain well. I didn't realize.
Camilla: I didn't tell you all this so you could apologize. I want you to think twice before you judge someone else unfairly!
Niles: I'm so ashamed. You must beat me! Here, I deserve to be punished.
Camilla: I'm not going to beat you!
Niles: Please, strike me across the face. I'll wait.
Camilla: Seriously, Niles. I'll pass. If you want to be flogged, you'll have to do it yourself.
Niles: Lady Camilla, I found you! I wanted to tell you how sorry I am—
Camilla: Niles, this is the fifth time you've apologized! I told you! We're fine!
Niles: I'm afraid I have another matter to beg your forgiveness for.
Niles: I lied. I never thought you were pathetic. I asked you all of those questions about Lord/Lady Avatar because I was jealous.
Niles: Here you were showering all of that love and attention on Lord/Lady Avatar... I wanted it to be me.
Camilla: Oh? Is that all?
Niles: What? You're not mad? I said terrible things about you and Lord/Lady Avatar!
Camilla: Niles, there's plenty of love to go around!
Niles: But I tormented you!
Camilla: And your childhood was full of torment! It all makes sense. I feel very protective over Avatar, and I've started to feel that way about you. Funny, isn't it? I actually think you're kind of cute.
Camilla: What's the matter?! Cat got your tongue?
Niles: Yes! I mean, no! I mean, wait! Oh! What's wrong with me?!
Camilla: I think you're like an adorable little puppy I just caught chewing on my shoes! Now that I know your story, I don't mind your rough talk. ...It's kind of amusing.
Niles: Well, Lady Camilla, there's plenty more where that came from!
Camilla: I hope so.
Niles: Come over here. I'll whisper more of these naughty, little words in your ear.
Niles: Was that too much?
