Tower North, The Tower, The Last City, Earth
The Guardian approaches the Speaker.
The Speaker: There was a time… when we were much more powerful… But that was long ago. Until it wakes and finds its voice, I am the one who speaks for the Traveler. You must have no end of questions, Guardian. In its dying breath the Traveler created the Ghosts, to seek out those who can wield its Light as a weapon - Guardians, to protect us, and do what the Traveler itself no longer can.
The Guardian: What happened to it?
The Speaker: I could tell you of the great battle, centuries ago… how the Traveler was crippled. I could tell you of the power of the Darkness, its ancient enemy. There are many tales, told throughout the City to frighten children. Lately those tales have stopped. Now… the children are frightened anyway. The Darkness is coming back. We will not survive it this time.
Ghost: Its armies surround us. The Fallen are just the beginning.
The Guardian: What can I do?
The Speaker: You must push back the Darkness. Guardians are fighting on Earth and beyond… join them. Your Ghost will guide you. I only hope he chose wisely.
Ghost: I did… I'm sure of it. We're in this together now.
