Expert testimony, I
[[Isolde is questioning Clampfoot the Shrine Administrator. Four faeries from the audience interrupt from off-panel and in an insert. Dódr whacks his hammer and speaks from off-panel.]] / Clampfoot: ...Quite a few femurs, more than could be from a single ancestor. / Faerie 1: Boo! Blasphemy! / Dódr: Order! Or I'll clear this court! / <<Whack! Whack!>>
Faerie 2: There can only have been one! / Faerie 3: Oh, come on. There must have been at least two. / Faerie 4: They were a clan, I tell you!
Dódr: Order! Order! / Clampfoot: They were all catalogued, but they are all in cases, so they are hard to keep track of visually. / Isolde: How about incident reports? Surely you can tell if anything out of the ordinary has happened in the past ten or so years? / Clampfoot: In the long run, out of the ordinary events are ordinary. / Dódr: Mister Clampfoot, you know perfectly well what I mean. We are talking about intrusions, or damage to the cases, the premises or the guards. Clues and indications! / Clampfoot: I have no record of such things. Not in the past ten years.
