Ennesby: I used to pilot a warship. And I could fly an entire tank squadron in combat at once.
Ennesby: What am I now? I'm just a talking head, there for everybody else to yell at.
Ennesby: and most of the time, I'm too demoralized to shout back. It's like I exist solely as someone to whom things can be explained aloud.

Kevyn: You're an "Adjutant." Congratulations on your promotion.
