Shadow cannot exist where there is no light, it depends on the light.
Without the object of its obstruction, it would have nothing to void, nothing to cast astray. All opposing forces are merely two perspectives of the same truth, and thus the fate of Janus is merely another perspective of the rest of the world’s fate.
There is a force of unrelenting light, who wishes to purify the world with healing... We call him the Crusader, the Healer of Light. He has beheld the Light of God, and has been given authority to provide justice against all sinners. The light emanating from his body is a holy, bright burning flame, thus the shadow it casts is a long dark void.
Oh Holy Paladin, Agent of God.
As his every move is aligned closer with God’s will, his capacity for healing increases. Whether he chooses to burn the Imposters into white ash, or call upon his power of chaos to entomb them frozen solid in time, repentance is inflicted according to his will.
Michael, the holy one who first discovered the Imposters, left these words with Rosenbach, the first Paladin and blessed Agent of God...
“The authority given to you is an honor, yet its origin is chaos… for the light of a true healer is an unrelenting fire, burning bright through darkness with a shadowless flame.”
“Have you ever tasted the sweet and bitter tart of poison? ...I sure have. I have drunk much poison in my lifetime.
If you have never tasted poison, close this book. If you have never confronted the face of death, you must close this book.
This is an account of my life and experience with the many poisons of the world. These indulgences can bring about an exuberance you have never known, as quickly as they can bring death to any enemy.
Whether you are a fighter in the street, a deceptive swindler, assassin hidden in shadow, or guilty party of an illicit affair, it is of no concern to me. Poison kills without bias.
This poison does not exist to strengthen you. It uses you to become stronger. It is at your expense that its embrace becomes more formidable.
For those that have not opened your heart and mind to poison, I can offer you this... From the moment the nectar of death touches your tongue, it ensnares your throat and fills your lungs with a robust toxin. For such a noxious and violent compound, there really is no sweeter scent.”
- Excerpt from “The Alchemy of Poison”, written by Luise, the first Hellcat
To catch a tiger, one must enter the tiger's cave.
Those on the path of an Exorcist are destined to confront the many evils that are the core of all anguish, pain, and resentment in the world.
To be an Exorcist means to desire to purify this world of evil, whether they be human or spirit. And so the ancient spirits have long been the symbol of the will and power of the Exorcist.
For generations, the scholars of the Holy Order have been in pursuit of understanding the ancient scriptures, written about the Exorcist:
“All evil deities of this world or nether, shall entomb themselves within the energy of a true Exorcist, and will forever call him master.”
As the deeds of “Sinya” at the Dark Temple have proven, even myth can become reality. After years of deep ritual practicing, he began to glow with a bright blue aura. Many even say they began to see the faint image of two outstretched wings following him closely at all times. It became apparent that he had begun to wield the power of the Blue Dragon spirit.
As a master of spirits and keeper of the gates to the netherworld, the Hyperion holds the key to balance in his very hands. He does not hesitate to call upon the spirits under his control to bring about purity to the world.
The Hyperion Order fights for the day their blue energy cools the red-stained moon once again, and then they will know that the world has been purified.
That a demon has possessed one’s arm is certainly a curse. Since no one would ever pursue such a thing, it is attributed to nothing other than fate.
To the accursed, little choice is given, but they must decide whether they wish to oppose that demon, or to entrust his soul to its darkness. This is left to one's own will. The strength to withstand its consuming darkness, yet control and guide its power is not an easy balance to maintain.
As we know, there are those who have broken through the chain. It is said that Zieg, the first and strongest Soul Bender, was able to control the seven demons any way he wanted. Yet even he eventually disappeared into the ground, due to those same entities that he embraced.
It is clear that the way of the Soul Bender is not a path easily taken… but as those who have tasted power know, as soon as you experience even the smallest amount, you acquire a desire, or even hunger for more.
The time for the advent of Blache, the prohibited demon, is at hand. An advent brought on by he who commands the demons.
You who dream, can you feel the giant shadow that waits with an avarice mouth open behind your back? You who crave, are you prepared? The time has come to fulfill your ceaseless desire.
But remember, desire is much like fire. If not properly contained, it may ultimately consume you.
