"Considering that I was the one who led the charge against Elandra, Kurzyk," said Remiel, wearily, "I either have to be telling the truth, or I'm the sneakiest, most disloyal bastard that ever there was, to sell out my fellow thorns in order to save my own hide."
He thought about it, and shrugged. "Which, of course, is certainly possible. I don't blame you for being suspicious. But consider that both sinera and morningsdreams voted with Elandra last night. That alone should convince you of their guilt. When the chips were down, when it mattered, they could not vote against one of their own."
"Now, I'll admit I'm not perfect. I was dead wrong about Bliss, for example. But I am now one hundred percent certain that Sinera and morningsdreams are Thorns."
