The H.E.L.M., The Moon's Orbit
The Guardian arrives to investigate the cause of a communications black out at the H.E.L.M. A large projection of Calus appears above the War Table.
Calus: You never cease to entertain me, little Guardians. Time and again, you have moved me to applause. And have I ever withheld your gilded reward? No, for I am magnanimous. Generous. Forgiving. And so, I grant you yet another gift: one last chance at salvation. The Witness, in all its glory, has set its covetous gaze upon your Traveler. You cannot stop it. Light burns for only so long. A feeble flame, easily… extinguished. But you need not share that fate. I invite you to instead join me in revelry, and embrace the inevitable. Alas, you have always been… stubborn. So if you insist on being devoured… Then I will savor your final moments. Until our next reunion… Guardian.
