- I've heard it said, everyone is the hero of their own story. The thought is that even the most vile villain believes his actions to be right and thinks of himself as "good." I am here to tell you, right, that I am evil. I am greedy, selfish, I do not care or the plights of others. The citizen walks among us but he is not one of us. He goes on about his daily life unaware of the dangers that surround him. The dangers people like us bring to his doorstep. We are better than the citizen. We are aware of the evils of the world and we celebrate them...profit from them. Money and power. That is our desire. That is the foundation of The Order...I look before me, and I see a power the world has not yet experienced. A power that could bring aobut the end of all things.
