The protagonist is a family member of Amber and a sorcerer.
He rescued Jasra, his adversary and future ally against a formidable magician from the magician's den; he just now dispelled a petrifaction spell on her.

"I appreciate the fact that I am in Amber and alive and not occupying a cell, with two gentlemen behaving in a conciliatory fashion. I also appreciate the fact that I am not in the stairs my most recent memories indicate I should occupy. And I have you to thank for my deliverance?"
"Yes."
"Somehow I doubt it was a matter of altruism on your part."
["Sign of Chaos" of The Great Book of Amber by Roger Zelazny]
I'd like to know what "on your part" means here.
Thank you in advance for your help.
