SANGHEILI WARRIOR
Demon.

TRANSLATION
Ghashank'o.

MERCY
Blessed One...

TRANSLATION
Hirajo...

MAKEE
The artifact was not where I predicted?

TRANSLATION
Jan gaikhoji ni diibe kheluuga ts'ukhijahe?

MAKEE
But it did not make its way back to us?

TRANSLATION
Q'a riin ni tkha jayetanjahe?

MAKEE
I don’t understand.

TRANSLATION
Jan mosik'weya.

MERCY
Upon interrogation he claims that the human who took it, one known to our warriors as Demon, was able to bring the artifact to life. As you can.

TRANSLATION
Tkha ch'intan domo o--riin ni k'uucho o ghashank'o zhi mu tkhaacho--kheluuga t'iyaq'ujen, mep'uuka ba mu o juukhojo. K'e me mos ba.

MAKEE
I need to speak with this swordsman. Right away.

TRANSLATION
Ne et’ojo oni t’ikhawa ba jan ngani. Ikhi ga.

MERCY
Might I suggest you leave that behind?

TRANSLATION
K'e o uzo mots'aha, jan o t'ipaachaga.

MAKEE
Oh, I ---

TRANSLATION
Qkhe, jan--

MERCY
You study the book of human stories not because they are your people, but so that you might better know the mind of our enemies?

TRANSLATION
K'e o domo p'asnga p'uko moq'asqas ii ghaazhi k'e ni tkhet'a ba muuri o, q'a ghaazhi riin ni qkhan ba mos ch'aamosik'ojaga?

MAKEE
That’s right.

TRANSLATION
Kkhagadza.

MAKEE
I appreciate your counsel, Mercy.

TRANSLATION
Jan o k'e ba mosone juuch'inji, Q'iitu.

MERCY
Perhaps at some point you will read them to me. So that I may also know the enemy.

TRANSLATION
Jaja maasa ni k'e o jan oni tkhaari ch'anaachaga. Nizhi jan o qkhan ch'aamosik'ojaga.
