For my country and those like me.
It is my calling.
I crave the control and the power.
To preserve humanity.
The heart wants what it wants...
Because I am a monster, albeit a necessary one.
I enjoy it.
A knife and a hangman's noose.
I have the might of magic behind me.
I am cleverer and more patient than anyone else.
I have mastered myself.
I have more experience than anyone in this world.
I control life and death.
I know what needs to be done, and am strong enough to do it.
No one has as much power as I do.
"I wonder—do you ever get tired of the things you can’t do? Can’t catch every killer. Can’t keep a wife. Can’t keep from coming back here. Can’t get me out of your mind."
"You may not think I can feel, but that doesn't mean I can't see feelings in others."
"The problem with wanting is that it makes us weak."
"After tonight, no one will ever again question my power. After tonight if they speak of you, they’ll only speak of how you begged for death. And how I being a merciful Lord… obliged."
"I am the force that corrects those who err."
"Never love something so much it can be used to control you.”
"But I learned in that moment if no one sacrifices, no one survives."
