“I am no King. No conqueror. I held in my hand the largest army I have ever seen . . . and I was tempted.”
“What matter is a King?”
“Eh? There is some glory in it . . . how much higher can a man ascend? Emperor? It tastes bitter, friend. Bitter. The greatest glory I have seen . . . and yet, what is this iron? This is broken armor from feigned champions. It is no trophy! What is a trophy?! What is left to taste in life?!”
“The Adversary found a deeper appetite to sate.”
“Mm. . . .”
“Are you a man?”
" . . ."
“Are men born of fire, possessed of molten wing and iron eye, with hands that break the unbendable and forge the Spark of Life itself?”
“No . . . No. There are no men like me. No Thenn before, none that breathe now.”
“Then you are no man. No more than I.”
“I will be no new Adversary! Some slave lord come to bend men til they break! I am the one who broke my chains!”
“And learned again how to forge stronger ones.”
“Mm . . . Mm. A breaker of chains . . . that was my dream once. There is glory in that . . . in the freeing other from the tyranny of evil men . . "
“What is a man? You are beyond men.”
“Of evil kings, rulers . . .”
“What is a king? You are beyond kings.”
" . . ."
“Mm. Beyond men, beyond kings and emperors, beyond the very gods . . .Beyond the gods there is only—”
“Yes. Yes! Yes!! Such is a Skylord! Such is Rakkis! The Thenn! The only of his kind! Beyond men and gods, there is Legend! We are the new Age of Heroes, Nail! We are myth reborn!”
“Glory? Glory is eternal! And glory is what will bring the men of Golarion to riot! We are the Legend, the tale as it lives . . . and how can you kill a story, Nail?”
" . . . We charge toward Fate. We rush to the end. We have only to choose our Path there. And that path becomes the Story that will set the world free. We can never die, as long as we live in the glory of our path! Glory is not gold, nor hollow trophy! I am the blood of the dragon; but my horde shall not be hollow things! I shall horde the Ages! I shall horde the Tales of Legend! I am the myth itself, and from our story all stories will be woven!"
“Melt it down!”
“All of it!”
“Cast off your ancestors!”
“None came before me! And none after!”
“We forge the future! We are Legend!”
