Responding to Valerie's implicitly voiced accusation with unconcerned indifference, Andres simply did not care, not any longer. "Hm, what an amusing accusation. I have saved my brother, your man, three times now", recalling his recent medical stabilization of Quintus' disparaged bioelectrical faculties, his saving of Quintus from the structural collapse of an archaeological site, and his past intervention of Quintus' battle against Shinigami in the Statue of Liberty's destruction.
"And yes. I would and will defend him. I have never taken you as someone to speak of something you know nothing about", the Knightfall A-Lister paused, maintaining apathetic poise as he resumes conversational indulgence. "Ask your man what he did to anger Amaranth so much. It will enlighten you. Tis not a thing anyone would take likely. But I will keep this concise, as promised".
Turning away to commence his departure, disinterested in whatever verbal vexation the White Queen may muster, Andres dismissed. "This is all very tired. I have more pressing matters to attend to. Saving Mercy for one. As for my brother", he scoffed, "I'm done saving him. Take good care of Quintus, he'll need it". Uninterested, focused on the prioritized objective of locating Mercy, Andres vanished, teleporting, opting against waiting for whatever Valerie would say, wordlessly cultivating palpable tension between both Hellfire monarchs.
