It appears all are now present.
That's rich, comin' from the one who just decided to show up.
*sigh* What hopeless hypocrisy.
I should be thanked for not rebuking those who recklessly ignore orders.
Orders? Idiocy. We have not the type of relationship in which commands are either given or received.
Yeah, we're free! Isn't that right, Oto?
That's right, Aya. Just because we agree with the things HE says doesn't mean we've become his minions.
Of course. That's how we've always been. If each of us accomplishes what must be done, there will be no interference.
But what of...them?
What's there to say? They're puppets who know nothing of freedom.
That's right! Puppets with no idea if they even have free will or not!
The little puppets playing in their little delusions... It's almost adorable!
They are weak. Nothing more. And weakness must be culled.
Yeah, they're a pathetic bunch, all right.
It would appear we are in agreement: they possess strength enough that we ought to be wary of them.
Were you even listening?
None here can ever find agreement, yet now you all steadfastly hold to the same belief. I find this most abnormal.
I suspect something has occurred to give you pause—perhaps a battle with a foe who proved to be your equals?
You have the right of it: They are strong. It is hopeless to pretend otherwise.
And they're blessed with talent, fortune, and friendships...which I find irremissible!
It merely means that the six of us—having attained the height of power—now have foes actually worth the slaughter.
Yeah, it's all the same in the end. We'll just go and rip 'em up.
Good. I see it was wise to trust you to act on your own. Your vigilance will not go to waste in the battle to come.
But from this point forward, I cannot have you simply doing as you please. Bear that in mind.
Do you still not get it? Not one of us is above or below the other; we neither give nor obey the others' orders.
We won't let anyone interfere with our freedom—not even HIM.
We have no common ideology. We have no single connection.
Pathless. Licentious. Free. Aberrant. We are a group that is not a group, which is why we are gathered.
But we all seek the same thing. I trust I am not mistaken in this?
Rebellion against the world.
The world rejected us...
So WE will reject the world!
And we are all in agreement as to what is needed for that goal.
The treasure of treasures—one with the power to unwind fate itself.
We shall rebel, shatter destiny itself, and eliminate this world. And to accomplish this, we must have the Dawnshard.
So you have come as well, Nedrick.
I'm not looking to serve as your leader, but we are all here to use each other as tools. I will have you live up to the power I bestowed upon you.
I shall permit no turning away. You need not obey me, nor bend the knee—but I'll not see you veer from our objective.
Move ever towards it, without erring. This is what I gathered you for.
Your concerns are unnecessary; our souls were loosed from this world long ago.
We'll turn away from nothing! Right, Oto?
That's right, Aya. Our sights are set FIRMLY on our world.
Very well. Then let us be off, so we might unmake this world with our own hands.
We're rebels against the world.
And we will awaken the world.
