Claudius was flustered at the close contact, but he didn't push her away. "H-Hey! Don't get gored on my armour's spikes!"

"I-In any case! I didn't tell you the full details, so there's no reason to tear up, alright?"

Penelope tears up a bit, "......oh...Claudius...." She sighs and hugs him, "....no one should have to go through such a thing.....war....such a horrific thing... I'm sorry..."

"The part where I commit matricide? My mother engaged me in combat after abandoning me since I was a little baby. Mother or not, she was an enemy, so her fate was sealed."

Claudius was lost in his thoughts. "There were no two ways about it. She was the one who pushed me to do it anyways." He solemnly shook his head. "Never mind me, what do you want?"

Penelope looks shocked at the question, "Well....I can't really recall....warm I guess? She fell ill quickly after my little sisters birth....at times it felt more like I was the mother....I guess...." She frowns, "Claudius...?"

"...what does a mother feel like? I met mine for a few moments only, and I killed her after that, so I don't know what maternal love is like..."

Penelope sighs, "It just goes to show you....the different human experiences....and how they lead to different beliefs and paths. It's amazing to me...in my travels....all the different cultures, religions, systems everyone has..." She gives a small smile to Claudius, " your reason is obviously...sound as well....you had to do what you could to survive, I've encountered that before....my family...
We grew up poor as well. My mother was sick too.... I took care of my family mostly...This I think also contributed to why I wanted to be a Humanitarian..."

Claudius smiled, recalling something. "When I was a little kid, I was very poor. I had to rely on myself to hunt so I can feed, even if the prey was...less than desirable. So that's why aversion to meat is like an insult to my very existence, the struggle I had to endure to reach where I am now. Although, I don't feel insulted by you because your reason is sound."

Penelope nods sadly, "Yes....war shows very well....true human nature to prey on the weak....that is what I want to stop...to make no one weaker then others....though....I can't say I have ever hunted my own food in that way..." She looks up in thought, "I've been with others who have them selves...."

"And I respect your choice too, it's true animals are sometimes tortured to acquire spoils. However, have you ever hunted your food yourself? That primal animalistic rush...it's only human nature to predate."

Penelope shakes her head, "I've witnessed many accounts of people being bought and sold.... tortured killed....and treated as if they were animals in a slaughter house....I work with people caught in the cross fire of wars....I must extend my compassion to all humans but...it feels right to extend it now to all beings after...some of the things I've seen. " She gives him a sure look, "These are just from my....own personal experiences though...I uh, don't look down on anyone for choosing to eat meat themselves....just a personal thing for me."

A look of pure horror passed over Claudius's face. "V-Vegetarian? You never experienced the glory of flesh?!"

Penelope's eyes widen, "Well I'm vegetarian so I do have dietary restrictions....I'd feel bad anyways uh, having you cook for me and all...." She looks down, "I usually like doing things for other people...I guess it's a bit hard when people do things for m- " She blinks rapidly,"I'm rambling a bit now...ahhh sorry...if you really want to you can....but then I'll have to prepare something for you in return...."

Claudius closed his eyes in disapproval. "That won't do, food is the fuel of the body, and without fuel you're no better than a corpse. Shall I prepare something for you?"
