Didn't think BM would actually stab himself.
|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.|
|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.|
