Courtyard of the Tower, The Last City
The Guardian approaches Commander Zavala and begins to speak with him.
Zavala: "Uldren Sov is dead."
Zavala turns partially away from the Guardian, no longer facing them.
Zavala: Ikora spoke those words when I offered her the news of Crow's unmasking. She already knew, of course. As did Osiris. And you.
Zavala turns back to the Guardian, gesturing frustration with his hands.
Zavala: Without trust, we become like the Cabal: fractured and consumed from within. I've sent your friend on a reconnaissance mission while I determine the best way forward. Empress Caiatl will honor our agreement. This is an armistice, not an allegiance. Those who do not answer her call to leave Earth are criminals in the eyes of her empire, left to us to deal with as we see fit. Saladin will have words, I'm sure… But preserving what's left of the Cabal insulates us from further incursions by Xivu Arath.
Zavala looks away from the Guardian, into the distance, before looking back to the Guardian.
Zavala: The enemy of my enemy, Guardian… until such time they are not.
