- The Rapture Device has absorbed its fill of harvested life from Fury and Desire. It is ready.
So am I.
I know now that I was born to be the end and the beginning of the Empire. The Beast has made this clear to me. As clear and undeniable as the sacrifice I must now make.
My Lady Dialla, my love, my life's greatest achievement. She must leave me now, for she cannot follow and she will perish if she remains.
And so I will ask of her more than she would ever give. I will betray her. I will break her heart so that I do not break her soul.
