As he listens to Ivaz's response, the Crusader's hands begi to clench into fists, and it is obvious that he is appalled by what he hears. Any attempt at politeness is gone in his rebuttal, which is spoken in a harsh, condesending tone:

We all come to know what is good and what is harmful to the group as a large, and thus seek to punish those whose actions harm others or society as a whole, because we know it is the right thing to do. Many also innately know when a law is unjust, one made only to serve the interests of a few and not the people as a whole, thus can deduce it is the correct path to not follow it. Yes the majority determines the rules, but that does not necessarily make them wrong, and if they are inherently wrong, then it is the moral duty to oppose such laws and seek to change them.
So you wish to ignore the laws, say you are better than to follow what you take to be made up concepts, and imply you are better off for it. Yet if we followed the rules of tooth and nail, it is doubtful that a pitiful creature such as yourself would even exist, having been eradicated by predators more fearsome than your lowly self could ever hope to achieve. Besides, I am certain that if you were wronged in some way, such as being robbed, you would crawl whining to the authorities, asking them to catch the one responsible.
I suggest you repent for your obvious wickedness, for though it may seem advantageous to you in this life, it is a destructive path that will likely leave you dead or worse. And I do not believe I even need to begin to explain what horrors await a hellbound heart such as yourself."
Turning his attention back to the flumph, the Crusader returns to his previous more cheerful tone and responds with, "Well you do have a point with the abuse of family and advantage takers, though I must say I don't see a better alternative to my methods. Most of the patrons would simply ignore any other approach I may take, but this way they must hear what I have to say, and reconsider what they are participating in. Furthermore, I cannot secularize this, for I am on a most holy mission, to downplay it would be nigh heretical. I realize what she attempts to do, and I do not intend to start a battle in here where innocents may be harmed, though should the vile creature attempt to do harm, I will act to save these souls from her wickedness."
