Asterion Abyss, Europa
The Guardian travels to Eventide Ruins.
Ghost: Guardian, I don't know if I have it in me to keep this up… wielding the Darkness, I mean.
Eventide Ruins, Europa
A Skiff with Eliksni escapees who are allies of Variks is prevented from leaving Europa due to being held in place by an emitted field.
Variks: The Skiff is prepared [wheezes] Help my allies flee this ruined place, and they will become your allies too.
The Guardian tampers with the field emitters and three Archon Aspirants arrive to protect the field emitters. The Guardian defeats the Archon Aspirants and enters the field emitter codes. The allied Skiff is released from the emitted field and escapes.
Variks: My friend… thank you. Soon, the Eliksni who still know hope will flee to safety. [insect-like chattering] Misraaks, the Light Kell, awaits them. For a Kell, he is young. Untested. [insect-like chattering] But my people dare to hope, yes? I see now that you wield this dark power more wisely than Eramis. Perhaps the corrupt did not stem from Darkness, but from anger. [insect-like chattering] Bring this lesson to Eramis. [insect-like chattering]
