[Lia] “Aunt Bernette was never one to restrain her words, even with a priest in the room and protocol at stake. My father claimed I got my impulsive tongue from her..." (KOD, Ch. 1)
[Lia] “...Aunt Bernette noted, a little exaggeration was always expected when describing weapons, victories, and body parts.” (KOD, Ch. 13)
[Pauline] “My aunt’s mouth fell open, appalled, but Lady Bernette reached out to her, putting a hand on her shoulder. “Pauline is right,” she said softly. “It was Lia’s choice and beyond any of us to stop her.” (BOD, Ch. 67)
