--> ''There exists an ancient prophecy...''

-> ''"The beast of despair feeds on man and destroys hope.\\
The unleashed frenzy of death yearns for the light of life.''

-> ''The advancing inferno scorches the throne's surroundings.\\
In the Cauldron that breathes despair, the blood of the ancients boils.''

-> ''When Leventhan, last of the dragons, devours the stone of blood,\\
the path shall be closed and void will cover the world."''

--> ''And so begins the tale of five warriors...''

->"What will you think when you see me as you awaken? Will you hate me...? Will you run away, forever? Such musings are pointless. I can't go back to the man I used be. No matter how you react... and even if it only brings me pain...I want to see...I want to see my reflection in your eyes... I want to hear... I want to hear those soft lips speak my name... And if, for a moment, a smile lights your face...I will be able to live. No one controls me now. From now on, I act on my own... For you..."
