a bare chested, muscular man, his body gleaming with sweat.
Initial visit :
"Excuse me a moment." He pulls a napkin from his belt and mops at his brow. "Now, what were you saying?"
"Wait a minute," he interrupts, "I recognize you... You're the Avatar! I've always wanted to meet you."
From the day I first saw your portrait, I knew you must be the most beautiful woman in all Britannia."
You're the greatest hero in all the land."
Subsequent visits :
"Oh, <Gender> Avatar, 'tis an unexpected pleasure to see you again!"
"Hey, my old buddy <Avatar Name>! Good to see you again."
"Maldric, I am. Once Maldric the boar hunter, now Maldric the cook."
"Aye, I used to live in the forest and hunt wild boars."
"But one day I presented a roast boar as a gift to his majesty, and he liked it so much he hired me as his cook."
"Yes, Lord British himself."
"Those were good times. But I'm happy here."
"The secret is in the spices. It's an old family recipe."
"I'll never tell.
Though for one so sweet, I must say I'm tempted."
"I cook for all those who live in the castle, and for any guests who dine with Lord British as well."
"'Tis sastisfying work, yet at times I wish I could travel with one such as you..."
"Lord British has many friends."
"A fancier home than any of my family ever lived in. Yet I still miss my simple hut in the forest."
If female :
"I wish it were still there, so I could invite you to come spend an evening by the fireplace with me...
"There's fire enough in my kitchen, but 'tis no place for romance."
"I shouldn't even speak of such things."
"After all, you are the Avatar, and I but a lowly cook. Please forgive me."
"He's a good man. Likes plenty of pepper in his stew."
"Spice puts some variety in life, is what I always say."
If female :
"You're a pretty spicy little number yourself!"
"I've heard about all of your adventures. I wish I were a warrior too, and not just a cook!"
"I like having a job where I can make people happy."
"See you later. And next time you dine with his majesty, I'll cook you something special."
If female :
He seems about to say more, with a hopeful look in his eyes.
But then he turns away without speaking.
"Funny you should mention that... It reminds me of my secret recipe for roast boar."
