The spotlight softens, taking the focus off of NOBLEMAN and SONGBIRD; SONGBIRD visibly relaxes when NOBLEMAN turns to address the lounge as a whole.

NOBLEMAN: Don’t let my title keep you from freely mingling.
NOBLEMAN: I may be noblesse on land, but all that I invite on my ship are as equals. [would he really say this even as a lie? also most definitely not creepy/foreshadowing enough]

[this scene is dragging a little still. can’t let nobleman talk more, he’s too verbose! skip to nightmare scene for now]
