JET: Look, I... I'm looking for answers. I guess I'd settle for a job working for you.
CSC: Understood. I can probably help you with the former, and definitely help with the latter.
JET: You have a job for me?
CSC: Of course. An adventurer like yourself can be quite a useful asset.
JET: What do you need?
CSC: Not what I need, really, but what I want is for you to help the other two candidates for Pirate Lord lose the election. I need you to embarrass or incapacitate "Ironbeard" McBeard and Manbreath Threeplank. No murder, no permanent harm, though. They're both quite useful to our nation in their own way.
JET: And in return you'll give me answers?
CSC: If I win the election, you'll have the full power of the Pirate South behind you, as well as my personal connections. Fair deal?
JET: ...and you really don't mind that we knocked out one of your men?
CSC: Not really. Look, I'm in a hurry, Jill, battles to be fought, ninjas to kill, et cetera. Do we have a deal?
