I'm going with D on this one. I don't want more family strife. And I don't want to start us on the path of running to others to solve our problems.

I'd actually suggest that people seriously consider this as an actual possibility. We don't know poo poo about this world really, and I highly doubt our caretaker hasn't noticed the hair thing when we did at four years old. Or that she didn't receive some instruction in this.

Obviously beating her isn't a proper response, but it is entirely possible she had ulterior motives when it came to cutting our hair. Our uncle is capable of restraining our father to get proper answers regarding the hair-cut, whereas no one else suggested can do so if necessary. Our mother might be able to restrain him too, but uncle is the strongest man in the village.

We are four years old and cannot hope to physically restrain an adult man. If we manage it, it will purely be because El or the god our people worship empowered us to do so.

An interesting point. I'll go with the route for the hell of it and vote I. Now i'm just hoping we don't lynch an innocent person. Changed my vote again because I'm an indecisive moron!

D. Yes, she might have had ulterior motives (I think she wants us to grow up in the manner of her people), but I'd rather have us be the sort of person who would defend mistreatment of even the guilty than grow into the kind of person who tries to please others without having an understanding of what that involves.

Yeah but screaming at him to stop isn't going to do anything. He already ignores us, there's no reason this time would be any different. Our uncle, on the other hand, has a history of arguing with him and is stronger than him.

Oh, I don't doubt that getting our uncle would be more effective at this point in time (if he's even interested). We're, what? A toddler? But we're not going to be a child forever. And efficacy of actions aside, I'd much rather see us develop into the right kind of adult.

That said, I don't know that our uncle, the high priest, would truly object to someone beating their slave. Especially if that slave tried to impose their foreign customs on a child. And I'm not sure I believe that our father ignores us because he doesn't care. Different forms of child rearing, etc. Also, I'd rather not pick and choose loyalties right now. If we run for help, it could be argued that we're siding with a slave over our father, our uncle over our father, etc. If we stand there and shout for our dad to stop, we're at least dealing with the situation directly, whether or not it's effective.

I think one of the major consequences of this vote is our own character's development. I would rather play as someone who has some balls and can give orders than some tattle tale. Snitches get stitches.

Frankly, I don't know anyone who likes Chinese bronzes, but I have one of the finest collections in the country.

E: We're too big to cry, and we want to be grown-up, and adults handle their own problems, so we don't want to run off for someone else to help us. Of course, we respect our father, we don't want to attack him, but we do want to resolve the issue ourself, take it into our own hands, so we'll try to pull Jalitha away, demonstrate our position and prove our dedication more than yelling or crying would do.

Voting F, she won't suddenly stop being our father's slave if we drag our uncle into this, even if he gets his rear end kicked over this now that just means he's going to be angrier later and end up killing her as a reprisal. Also, we don't even know how religious our uncle is, he might just start beating her down too, maybe we're getting the biggest guy in the village to kill some poor slave girl.

Take responsibility for it, say we asked to have our hair cut and didn't know it was wrong.

Eh, I feel like that's likely to get found out; our father, if he believes us, will probably want to punish us, Jalitha will tell the truth, then we'll just get in more trouble for lying, and she won't be in any better position.

Maybe not though, maybe she'll be scared enough from the beating to let us take the rap.

All the people voting for H do know that we're beginning our life by inciting fratricide right? And that's only if we save Jalitha. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, since dad seems to be an rear end in a top hat, but beginning the game by killing our dad seems a bit...mad.

I'm going for F to divert dad's attention (watch how this causes us to suffer some sort of permanent debilitating injury).

Uh what in any of that implied the high priest of the village was going to get killed by his brother (-in-law?) over a slave girl? Stopping a fight doesn't mean 'murdering one or both of the participants'.
