The Tower, The Last City, Earth
The Guardian approaches Saint-14 in the Tower's Hangar after defeating Dimio, Oppressive Mind.
Saint-14: I have thought much on Mithrax's story. We do monstrous things to fight monsters. It seemed simple then. When the City first formed, Titans were the walls. We did not think of our enemies when we fought. We thought only of protecting our people. Survival until the next day, no matter how. To be seen as… as a terror. A destroyer. To know children tremble in fear at my name, and mourn what I have taken from them. This is not the Saint-14 I know. I can never forgive what the Old Houses did to us, but these are not the old Houses. They are dead. What do we gain from more death? This… lashing out against defenseless people. It is the act of a coward. Mithrax risked much to trust us. If his House of Light can forgive… perhaps we must try to see the Fallen — Eliksni — as they see themselves… or none of us will ever be anything but monsters. We must be more than the enemies of our enemies.
