@Freix, I'm dragging you into this as well.
Okay, so bear with me cause this is pure speculation.
Skill Check: Persuasion. @Blacksmith, you made a topic on this called, ''The latest information about the Stats system,'' where you draw upon, and I quote:
The speech system is also interesting:
Highborn, Lowborn, Troubadour, Trustworthy middleman
So speculation would think that Henry is using a Highborn stat check for persuasion against another Highborn, ergo why he says, ''This peasant.''
So maybe @Wicker is right and Henry is just a douche bag.
