"I'm sorry, Ms Dominic" apologised Rohgen as he started into a polite
greeting ritual. "I'm in charge of this group, here. My name is Rohgen

    Also, i'm not sure if there's a special way the queen likes to be
greeted -- something rohgen might know though. -- maybe a streetwise
roll?...in either case, rohgens attempting to keep polite and keep the queen
from getting angry -- she seems scary to me (maybe not to rohgen but i
personally think shes kinda scary)   :) ]

"I've just been hired onto a group and we've been on a hunt for parts as of
