The Art of Manipulation is strongest when wielded by the fatuous master,

The slight of dirtied hand to arrange the field according to shared desire.

Truth wielded as perception by chiral reflection. Manifest impulse.
The most fortuitous battle is the one not fought, of blade beloved and embraced.

The turning of a foe to your own cause is a tenfold loss for the other side.

Aggression tempered, violence inverted.

Such is the formidable power of the Dame of Hearts.

Evident and by the veteran warlord rightfully feared.
