Symone: I fear we're in more danger now than ever. Valtrith and... It... could have destroyed us. They're planning something....
*Loads your Base Class ( Warrior Armor / Mage Robes / Rogue Leathers).*
*A couple establishing shots of Sepulchure's ruined fortress are shown. On the broken outskirts, a black fog gathers and Caitiff emerges from it slowly. It disperses the fog and opens its lower mouth to make some bones levitate. A skeletal-like ghost emerges from the carcass and puts its hand on the skull. It turns a sickly blackish-pink color as a black tentacle emerges from its visible eye. From that skull, Caitiff receives visions of the events that transpired during the climax of Sepulchure's ultimate plan. It could see the brave heroes that have gathered outside of the fortress, Sepulchure's spies locked in combat with a figure in a white glow, the helpless witnessing of the Elemental Orbs fusing into the Ultimate Orb, and lastly, Sepulchure getting stabbed in the back by Drakath.*
Sepulchure: Your living body cannot handle the power! I will watch you burn and then spit on your ashes!
*Your dragon flies by the figure, astonishing Caitiff.*
*The glowing white figure turns out to be you.*
Caitiff: ... him/her
*Caitiff takes its hand off the skull for a moment and puts it on again.*
Caitiff: Show me.
Caitiff: Show me.
*As Caitiff becomes relentless with its demand, the fog disperses and the skeletons begin to reanimate. Loads Caitiff.*
Caitiff: I will know. I will learn.
*It returns to the carcass it calls home and scours the ruins, searching for knowledge for its research.*
*Caitiff does not seem to find anything in the fortress that is useful and grows disappointed by what it did learn so far.*
Caitiff: The Darkness was stronger. It lost. It was betrayed.
*It repeatedly fires its powerful laser that can be seen from a distance in a fit of rage, causing a crack in one of its hands to glow. Suddenly, it finds a few sparkly pieces of glass near a pillar. It levitates them and according to its visions, they are a few more pieces of the Ultimate Orb. Caitiff retrieves the pieces, however, the same hand slowly starts to break apart, enlarging the crack.*

Pop-up headlines throughout the quest:
The skulls are crushed. There is nothing to learn.
The broken tower cracks and groans.
The bones are broken.
The bones sway. A failure of a minion.
Your path is blocked.
What you seek isn't this way.
There is nothing to learn from this one.
The remains writhe and shake but nothing new.
Broken pillars shift as the tower sways.
How are these fires still burning?
The fingers grasp but it doesn't have what you seek.
It shudders and points as you draw close to the remains you need.
