Quotes by Chella
Shae: M'lord Varys complimented Chella on her ears and said she must have killed many men to have such a fine necklace. And Chella told him only cowards kill the vanquished.
Chella: Braver to leave the man alive, with a chance to cleanse his shame by winning back his ear. Only so can you prove you do not fear your enemies."
