The Pinnacle of Evolution
The Pinnacle of Evolution
You...you monster! After all we did to eliminate the barriers between races! HOW COULD YOU?!
Cease your feeble attempts to resist. Seize hold your fate. Perish.
Nnngh... I'm sorry...Luca...
"Luca"? An accursed name. The moniker of he who blighted this land fallow with weakness.
Luca: The name of the very fool who dreamed this absurd hamlet into being.
I am Kai Yan. I am the apex. I am he who would show the correct path to all who pervade this land.
This town was befouled with weakness. Thus did I take it upon myself to raze it to the ground and annihilate its populace.
A culling. Nothing more.
The weak are culled by the strong. Thus is the foundation of this world. Given that, what are the people here? They are frail. Feeble. ...Weak.
Those who forsake factional competition to wallow in the fetid cesspool of harmony have forgotten what it means to be strong.
One differs so one may fight and kill and persecute until but a single species is left standing.
Only the last surviving species will prove itself worthy of inheriting this world. Thus does evolution wield the scythe.
That, Luca, is why the village you built is a mockery. A burlesque. You were a jester who gamboled and pranced as you led these people down damnation's path.
And if I am to direct the other species of this world back to the path of right, you must meet the same fate as those fool enough to follow you!
Only then will the different peoples of this world resume their rightful strife! Only then will this travesty be properly expunged from both memory and mind!
You, Luca, may have eschewed my design. But the others? No. I doubt it.
This land teems with canaille—the Empire not least among them. In your absence, could they not have put this village to the sword at their leisure?
What gospel did you evangelize to these dotards as they teetered on the precipice? That they may remain weak? That all they needed was to live in mindless harmony?
So long as you were there to protect them, perhaps. But were they ever truly safe? Look around you! Feast your eyes! Then tell me that it was ever so!
And I shall grant no absolution for you fostering weakness as you lead others down a path filled with ruin and lies— so by my hand you will pay for it!
There must be culling! Culling! CULLING! Only from violence can true strength and prosperity be born!
O power universal! Peerless might and honed force, imbue my body with dauntless strength!
I have fused my flesh with the Vajra Orb, a relic of untold power! My body, already ultimate, has ascended to a new plane!
Feral Shroud! Expand!
We are the invincible arm that rules over all species. We are...AGITO!
Behold—my perfect form! My peerless might! I am DAUNTLESS!
