"Do you remember me? I was once known as a knight of Cornelia. Two thousand years from now... you killed me. I am Garland. Oh, you did defeat me then. But the four great forces saved me by sending me back through time! Once here, I sent the four fiends into the future... where they shall once again use the four great forces to send me into the past! In two thousand years, I will remember none of this. But I will be reborn again here. So even as you die again and again, I shall return! Born into this endless circle that I have created!"
