His rather bland rambling duly interrupted, Neithardt also propped himself to his feet and joined the conversation regarding the youngling giants.
"I believe Master Giddis is in the right here. Perhaps it'll seem like kindness to you or feel like some sort of atonement for killing the rest of the young ones, but the truth of the matter was that we should not have stayed our hand in the first place. Sparing these two might mean nothing to most of you now, but let's take a look at this from the lifetime of a longer-lived species. We've killed their entire clan, subjected them to all sorts of mental and psychological trauma, and possibly letting them run off to fend for themselves in the bitter wild. If nothing else, this is the very definition of sowing hatred and malice, and will surely trouble bring trouble future generations. If you all are not willing to take responsibility for these young ones to find them a good home and ensure their future psychological stability, then you may claim no moral high ground here, and Master Giddis's iron mercy is a far more responsible decision than any other."
