Cast Appearing[]



Drizz'l and Garland stand outside the temple, arguing.
Drizz'l No, we CANNOT hire him. He's a Light Warrior, we hate him so much! Argh!
Garland The legend clearly states that there are FOUR Warriors of Light.
Garland Right now, with him here, there's only THREE of them. Therefore, there are no Light Warriors.
Drizz'l For the record? That's inane.
Bikke appears, close-up, joining the two.
Bikke No, it be makin' the mathemalogical sense.
Drizz'l Bikke. Two times two.
Bikke Cantaloupe.
Drizz'l Thank you for proving the point I was about to make.
Garland Further, as there cannot be Shadow without Light, there are no Dark Warriors either.
Drizz'l Garland, you're not our leader, remember? You're not in position to make this kind of call any more.
Vilbert arrives, standing across from Drizz'l and between Garland and Bikke.
Vilbert But if the Dark Warriors are no more, then you aren't in charge either.
Bikke He's got a point. Fruitbat, though be be. Yar.
Drizz'l He specifically does not have any point at all!
Black Mage finally shows up in this panel behind Bikke.
Black Mage Gentlemen, I have a radical proposal.
Drizz'l Don't listen to him! He's the enemy! The Prince of Lies!
Black Mage Lies are just creative truths.
