Hayden shrunk back a little as Daphne broke down. He was trying to keep it together despite the situation he was placed in. It probably helped too that this wasn't the only time he's dealt with the unknown, that much is true of his accusations. Lumina nudged the doctor, giving him a look, then pointed at Daphne, insisting he say something. He sighed, and, trying to hide his own trembling, he leaned over, placing his hands on his knees.

"I, uh, I d-don't believe they intend to kill us, at least not for a good while," he said, his tone at least sounding more confident. "This behavior is aberrant to typical monsters, and from my... research, that isn't often a bad thing. The fact we were placed in some kind of research facility within the castle means they want something from us, so our talents to them is valuable."

"Sound theory for a madman, I admit, but why are you here?" Hulson asked, Hayden lowering his head in response. "You weren't part of the project, and you seem to know quite a bit behind their motives... I wou-"

"He is here, just as you, as for all of you, for your brilliance and commendable contributions," a voice broke out among them, bringing everything back to silence. Hulson turned to the direction of the voice and fell from his chair, the various researchers in the room moved away. The source of their fear, the form of Yam-Suph could be seen, hanging upside-down, dripping down from the ceiling above, his masked face twisting around as his body flops down, reforming itself into a massive yet almost man-like form, the slime of his body forming what appeared as robes. He looked around at all of them, his glowing eyes sizing them all, before his eyes rested on Daphne. "Why do you- ah... some of my herd have been unkind. Unacceptable. Would you like to have them executed?" the great creature asked, leaning inwards casting a shadow over her, Hayden, and Lumina. The question he posed was cold, yet earnest. "I owe you so much, to lose any of you would be beyond tragic. I knew of your intent, to slay the Red Tide, and with noble sacrifice, it is no more. By the labor of your work, the storm was quelled, the dark waters were parted, and I was reborn."

"B-ut I- why... why... all this?" Hayden timidly questioned. Yam Suph turned to look at him, Lumina immediately moving in front of him to defend him. Yam Suph was somewhat taken aback by this behavior.

"Why? Would you not want to do the same for others? You have seen them out there, haven't you? Chaos driven, minds clouded, souls lost. You are on the verge of ending this tired cycle, to stop now would be... wrong."
