No! How could ne'Ric
miss? We won't have a second shot at this! What do we do
now... I can't even try to renew the spell because... oh
damn, Cartucke is breaking free already. Perhaps I can
contain him, buy us some time... I...
He is too strong, he
will break free and ravage the world, I cannot allow it! I
I must wound him,
weaken him, find some way to hurt him so he will be unable
to reach the outside world. Yes, there is a way, and I am
willing to sacrifice myself for this cause.
The pain, it is more
than I expected... Kyrilla, beloved daughter, I do this for
you, so that you might grow in a world free of darkness...
One final step, I am beyond returning now. Cartucke, you
demon, someone else will have to destroy you, but I give you
this final gift!
The pain is fading,
as am I. I wonder if I was successful, I must have been,
Cartucke has retreated and Four Bear Silent Oak is leaning
over me... asking me... I am fading...
No, heal the warrior,
heal Fenris. I am past saving... even by your arts, old one.
I will not rob my truest friend of your healing
I am comfortable, it
seems to matter little now that I could not kill the
Fiend... nothing seems to matter, save that I will never see
Kyrilla come into her own power... perhaps she will finish
the task I could not?
May it be so...
farewell constant friends, farewell cherished
