One people allowed us water freely when it was needed. It took us long to discover who they were. That is done with, now. The pledge of peace was destroyed; the treekillers spat in our faces. (Rhuarc, The Shadow Rising, Chapter 34).

"Treekillers are fit for nothing except to be killed or sold as animals in Shara" (Erim, The Fires of Heaven, Chapter 2).
