Other Great Weapon (SPOILERS)

Y'know, that's interesting. In the past I'd always read that exchange as
Baritt being lecherous and sardonic at the same time. I'd never really
caught on to the fact that he recognized her name. If he knew that
Pathfinder was attempting to find Aliera, then it would indeed be "droll" to
encounter her as he did. Even his request "Don't visit me, I don't think my
heart could take it" looks more like "Don't come anywhere near where my
Great Weapon might find you."

But then Vlad says "and he did actually seem to be sorry, too", which
doesn't really jibe with someone who would have been deliberately hiding
Pathfinder from the object of its desire. Curioser and curioser.
