  • Boniface dares to challenge me and the things I am entitled to! No! Commander, take the troops and go to Italy and retreive the Pope, he will face trial here.
  • Yes, your majesty. We will not let you down!
  • Boniface was able to escape from the troops that came to retrieve him. It wasn't soon after that he died from shock.
  • I must get away from them. I shouldn't have to stand trial for upholding the rules of the clergy even if the church is falling apart.
