"I have no need for pride. I have no satisfaction from my deeds or achievements to push such a feeling to the surface."
There was an expectation of further violence, but as the walls closed as the box was created, he looked curiously, only at the box. He had enough respect for those that had come with him to do what he had commanded that what was and had happened around them wasn't of his concern but theirs. His hand stayed skyward, gripped to attempt to keep the box in place, hoping if nothing else that Fukushu would tire himself out trying to move it and break free.
"I only think you need to calm yourself. At least this way we can speak without direct combat for a few moments. There is no expectation of long term imprisonment, simply a chance for you to take a breath and listen to reason."
His second had raised up cupping around his fist as moving outward slowly, as the box expanded as the wall facing Brumal became transparent. It was as solid as any other but now the two could see one another once more. Moving to the ground slowly the box moved as well, both Brumal and the structure touching down at the same time, letting him walk closer, looking Fukushu in the eye if he stopped his attack on the wall long enough to look at him.
"Would you truly rather fight me than speak with me? Is my lack of pride balanced by an exceeding amount of your own? I don't believe either of us wish to keep the other as an enemy over such an event. Now would be the time to talk to me in plain terms, free from anger, exaggeration, perhaps even pride, and tell me what we should do, where we should go from here. I will give you no planets but I offered you the chance to kneel. You could take them in the name of the Empire and find pride in something meaningful. Perhaps under the right circumstances you'd be allowed to rule one."
