Venarius: I recognise these men! That's High Templar Venarius with his guards. The other man is Valdo Caeserius. A man of science. They are building something together. Something important.
Venarius: That can't be right. Venarius was - is - a good man. A pious man. He would not lash out like that. No, he must have been provoked.
Venarius: Valdo is shouting at him, you see? Threatening him. The High Templar has no choice!
Venarius: Oh, dear! What just happened? Was that... because of me?
Zana, Master Cartographer: Apologies for the intrusion, Exile, but when we found my father's memory fragment, I thought we could explore it with Cavas' help... Now I know what a mistake that would have been. Cavas has altered this memory and he has likely been altering many others.
Venarius: That's ridiculous. I'm innocent. All the memories we've seen clearly prove that.
Zana, Master Cartographer: Of course they do. You've made sure of that. You're no stranger to rewriting history... High Templar.
Venarius: No.
Zana, Master Cartographer: Yes.
Venarius: Was I... Am I...? I am the High Templar... Venarius? It's starting to make sense now. I sought power to wield against evil...
Zana, Master Cartographer: Stop! Can't you see what you're doing?
Venarius: ...And I found it. Yes, this is a start. This is more than I possibly could have hoped for when I drew the blade and awoke -- yes, of course! Now I can protect Wraeclast properly.
Zana, Master Cartographer: ... protect Wraeclast...?
Venarius: What am I, a monster? No, the real monsters surround us.
Zana, Master Cartographer: And what does that mean?
Venarius: Demons, child. Countless. They watch us from the darkness. They claw at the thin veil that keeps our world separated from theirs. A great tide of evil that wishes only to crash down upon us and sweep our civilisation into oblivion. But I will stand against it.
Zana, Master Cartographer: Then we're on the same side. The entity that fed on your memories is doing the same thing to my father. Help us stop it!
Venarius: Oh, little one, it is you who will help me... Your memories will show what I need them to show, for the cause. Every thinking man and woman of Wraeclast will come to simply know that they must unite... under me. It is the only way to guarantee a unified defence.
Zana, Master Cartographer: We won't let you get away!
