Starling smiled broadly to Airimus, "But you forget, It was me and my friends who came up with the first ever power armour variant, If anyone can build a weapon to puncture thick armour like that it would be me and Indigo. Besides technology has a funny way of falling into different hooves if you get my drift" he said hinting that whatever weapon they make could be easily given to the other nations to combat the Empires armoured soldiers. He turned to face Luna, "As for your concerns about me, I would never do something so underhanded as to trick our Princess" he said with slight smirk. Starling had no intention of tricking Princess Luna as not only would it be as foolish as Twilight going into the Empire alone it would also probably be his neck quite literally, when he returned. Besides he knew tricking Luna would make Twilight very angry with him and that really was the last thing he wanted. "World war be damned we can't condemn a nation to death and do nothing" He stomped a hoof, "It's not right" he finished.
Garen nodded, "I'm glad you do" he said. There was silence as they made their way from the military sector before he spoke up again. "You know this is the last day I watch you" he said, "After this you're free as you were when you came here" he said, trying to up her mood. "Also, where are we going ?" he asked suddenly unsure of what was going on.
