Remember me? When we're through here, you won't.
What secrets are you hiding in that murderous mind of yours? Let's find out.
Valdo had some ingenious designs hidden in his memories... observe!
Valdo's designs were flawed.
Do you remember dying here? You will.
What are you?
In this, the realm of the past, I am King, and you will bow!
This one is my own creation!
Plenty more where that came from.
Face your destruction!
No! Impossible! How!?
This isn't over. This will never be over! I will unify humanity!
Feel the pull of the void!
Yes, that's it! Death sweeps in.
I will crush you!
Sin surrounds you!
Haha! Yes! Feed!
Be no more.
Burn away sin!
Reveal your past!
Open your mind to me!
If I must destroy you before uniting mankind, I will.
You and I were allies once, even friends. A pity.
I owe you my renewed existence, but that debt only extends so far.
I cannot allow you to impede the cause.
With each new murder you make mankind more vulnerable!
Every friendship becomes a betrayal, given enough time.
Keep pushing me, and I'll be forced to pursue those close to you.
I will sacrifice everything for the cause. Can you say the same?
What morality do you have to stand in my way?
To think, I trusted you!
I wish I didn't know what I know now.
I will resist you to the last, because I must!
I do this for all mankind.
Open your mind...
...and be erased!
I am everywhere.
Wraeclast will serve...
And so will you!
Only a matter of time.
Wraeclast needs me!
Light of salvation!
Darkness surrounds us!
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.
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.
Valdo is shouting at him, you see? Threatening him. The High Templar has no choice!
Oh, dear! What just happened? Was that... because of me?
That's ridiculous. I'm innocent. All the memories we've seen clearly prove that.
Was I... Am I...? I am the High Templar... Venarius? It's starting to make sense now. I sought power to wield against evil...
...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.
What am I, a monster? No, the real monsters surround us.
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.
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.
