"Sigh... Okay, in order:
1) No. We were talking to the clergy on the Street of the Gawds when The Rain showed up. Morte simply wanted to know what all the fuss was and to see if she could talk him down. She couldn't. He seems rather... persistent.
2) We already did. They're rumors. I can't help what people say.
3) No. We aren't attacking the church. We'd like it if angry clerics stayed away from us.
4) Yes, he is El Cangrejo. He's pretty awesome. He might even give you an interview or demonstration if you guys stop yelling.
5) Yes, he's a chosen one. No, we're not 'up to something'. He came to us because he just wants a normal life. Also, how do you simply just recognize him on sight?
Man... being guild leader is a pain. I think I need a drink tonight."
