The H.E.L.M., The Last City
The Guardian approaches Crow and speaks to him.
Crow: My mask was in my hand. Stupid, I know, but I felt… safe. I thought I could just relax for a minute. It was a mistake. Osiris tells me the commander always talks about making the hard choice. Reveal myself or let him die. Whatever I chose, someone would still say I was wrong. I'm sure you've lost people. Wracked your mind for how it could have been different. Too far away to act, but close enough to wonder. If you could've stopped it, wouldn't you? No matter the cost. I've been at the mercy of something I couldn't stop, without knowing why. Blind in a nightmare. I didn't want to be the reason for more pain. The next time they come for the commander, they'll have to get through me. Mask or no mask. Just… don't tell Osiris I said that.
