Do you remember the union of souls? I am your father, and he is I.
Zodiark: As time has passed with us so joined, I have come to understand the fatherly love Aurelius harbored for you.
Zodiark: Love for one's child...and the power of darkness. Prosperity...and destruction. Do these two opposing manas clash and annihilate each another? The answer is no!
Zodiark: The souls of Aurelius and I became one, combining into a whole of greater strength.
Zodiark: Thus, the trial of darkness is essentially the love of your honored father. If you best it, this new power will be yours to wield. But if you fall, you will know only ruin!
High Zodiark: Graaaaargh!
