Didn't think BM would actually stab himself.

Cast Appearing[]



Wrath Hey, here's a question.
I feel a complete contempt for everything and the overriding need to burn the world. Is that normal?
Black Mage Are you filled with regret that, eventually, there won't be more world to burn?
Wrath In the back, yeah.
Black Mage That sounds like my atrocities, all right.
Perfectly normal.
Wrath Moral quandaries have lost all meaning; the complexities of life have simple, violent answers; I have to admit, it's liberating.
Black Mage You know I've never been faced with the sheer scale of the horror I've brought into being.
It puts things in perspective.
Wrath I know what you mean.
The wants, needs, and rights of others no longer make sense.
Black Mage If you are my evil made real, then defeating you would be a self-exorcism. I'd be cleansed.
Wrath That's the idea.
Black Mage thinks...
Black Mage Then I know what I must do.
Wrath I can't help but think that indiscriminate murder is the only viable solution here.
Black Mage stabs himself and falls.
Wrath That's not what I meant.
