        Robin of Loxley: Why should I fear you? You're a man.
        Herne the Hunter: I am your destiny. Herne, Herne the Hunter. Look at me. They are all waiting, the blinded, the maimed, the men locked in the stinking dark all wait for you. Children with swollen bellies hiding in ditches wait. The poor, the dispossessed, they all wait. You are their hope.

      • (Will explaining what happened to his wife)
        Will Scarlet: Cold November night, soldiers, drunk, mercenaries. They took her from me. When they'd finished with her, they trampled her to death with their horses. Then they laughed, laughed. My name was Will Scathlock. It's Scarlet now.
