Gain (+8)

Sharla: [This is unusual for you, Riki.] I mean, curiosity is a good thing, but what’s brought this on?
Riki: Riki glad Sharla asked! When Mechon attack colonies, Riki and villagers know nothing. Just sit in village pon pon ponning about like normal day!
Sharla: I guess Makna wasn’t really on the Mechon’s radar.
Riki: Riki never saw a Mechon before. Only heard of them in whispers. On Prison Island was the first time Riki saw faced one. Riki scared! Sharla was brave though. Riki embarrassed.
Sharla: Don’t beat yourself up, Riki. I’ve been fighting the Mechon since I was... well, your height.
Riki: Sharla and friends stronger than Riki. Riki not good enough.
Sharla: [No, Riki. That’s not true.] What’s got into you? This isn’t the Riki I know. Normally you’re brimming with self-confidence!
Riki: R-really? Riki not Riki?
Sharla: We know the Nopon and Mechon never crossed paths before... But that doesn’t mean we think you’re not up to the challenge. You’re one of us, Riki.
Riki: Riki sorry, Sharla. Riki feel better now.
Sharla: Don’t mention it, Riki. We’ve all got our own reasons for fighting in this war. Some fight for their family, some for the friends they lost.
Riki: Riki happy he talk to Sharla! Riki super happy!
Sharla: You and me are friends, Riki. Don’t ever forget that. Let’s fight to the very end! For all the people of this world!

Sharla: [That’s nonsense, Riki!] I think you’ve got it all wrong.
Riki: Really?
Sharla: I know the Nopon and Mechon never crossed paths before... But that doesn’t mean we think any less of you in a fight.
Riki: Sharla and friends think Riki crash-pow Mechon OK?
Sharla: Yes! So stop worrying about it! We all have our own reasons for fighting, you included. Whether we’ve lost something or have people to fight for.
Riki: Yay! Riki glad he talk to Sharla!
Sharla: I hope I helped, at least a little bit. Just remember, you’re one of us! We’re all in this together.

Net 0 (-4, +4)

Sharla: [I’m not the best person to ask.] There’s so much to cover, I’m not sure where to start...
Riki: Sharla should hurry up!
Sharla: I’m sorry, Riki. It’s just... For as long as I remember, the Mechon have been the enemy. But if you asked me why, I couldn’t answer you.
Riki: Yeah! Riki not know too!
Sharla: Riki, what do you think of when someone mentions the Mechon?
Riki: Mechon look like sad machines.
Sharla: [That’s an unusual perspective.] I’ve never seen them that way, but I guess I can see what you mean.
Riki: Riki always think this!
Sharla: Well, our backgrounds are very different. I’ve never had time to think about their feelings.
Riki: Sharla has lost many friends. Riki not sensitive to Sharla. Riki always pon around when should talk serious.
Sharla: No, Riki, it’s not that. It’s actually quite nice to find someone who thinks differently. The Mechon have never attacked your home, thank goodness. So it’s natural that you’d have a different perspective.
Riki: Sharla so kind to Riki. Riki not know what to say.
Sharla: It’s all right, Riki! You don’t have to say anything.

Sharla: [What are you talking about?!] Are you saying you feel sorry for them?!
Riki: Sharla not like Riki’s words?
Sharla: Well... I guess I don’t mean that. We’re so different. We’re bound to see things differently.
Riki: Riki think Mechon with faces most sad looking.
Sharla: I don’t disagree with you there. When we found out there were Homs inside them... It was shocking, to say the least.
Riki: Riki feel lucky to travel with Sharla and friends. Riki learn lots! Riki feel scared most of time, but see and hear many things. They make Riki better Heropon!
