comment [潔]{いさぎよ}い meaning
Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. I understand now. @Flaw I don't play Starcraft I'm afraid but I understand what you are describing. There's a scene in the film 雨上が (Ame Agaru) or "After the Rain" as its called in English where the main protagonist recalls a story about how his Dojo master yields to him on their first meeting. I think its the same meaning.

Thanks, that helped a lot. To answer to your double negative question... its because I had the official English translation which was supplied as "Even the dragons shall fear me". I knew 足らない was negative and did not know 恐るる but it had to be negative to make the English (positive) translation. In this case the English translation did not match the Japanese original.

comment Tense of どういうつもりだ…
Thanks, in that case the closest equivalent I can think of in English would be "What are you playing at". I also wanted to check I hadn't misunderstood something obvious. Marked as the correct answer.
