Dialogue
Sinnocence (Boss Fight)

???: Doubts.

???: Whispers.

???: Yes, this will do nicely.

Myalos

???: And these are the "champions".

???: Regardless of the title, servants of the Avatars are servants nonetheless.

???: Ah, the Lhe'Shyian. Uaanta Fayt, was it?

???: On the contrary.
???: My dear colleague Remthalas has perhaps been... over-enthusiastic with his methods.

???: There, there, friend. Mistakes happen.

???: A fight would be counterproductive. The two of you are merely following the paths laid out for you.
???: It is no fault of your own. Such is the structure you have come to embrace.

???: Right for whom? From whose perspective? Yours? Or the Avatars?
???: You already doubt their judgement, <Character>, do you not?
???: Who is to say that their laws, their order is correct?

???: Is it? What has the rule of the Avatars done?
???: Ever there is conflict. Ever there is pain, and suffering.
???: There must be a reckoning against those who would allow such injustices.
???: A revolution. And at its head, there must be heroes.

???: And just how long have these "Makers" had to set the world in order? Thousands of years? Tens of thousands of years?
???: Hundreds of thousands?
???: And what do they have to show for it but indecisive and inconsistent fleeting action?

???: And do you think they don't want to?
???: The fools forget their place.

???: Please, Remthalas, I do not believe there is a need for such theatrics.

???: No, but you requested my assistance, did you not?

???: I ask you to do me this favor.

???: Good enough.

???: Ah, which reminds me, it is about time we said our farewells.
???: What we were after is no longer here, Remthalas.

???: A pity.
???: I am leaving. Do what you wish.

Reactivation

???: That was very convincing.

???: Well done!

???: Me again!
???: And here I thought you wouldn't be back so soon.
???: But- one moment, please, I would like to try something before we continue.

???: Hmm... that wasn't enough. Oh well.
???: Now, what can I do for you, champions of the Avatars? Pleasant day, isn't it?

???: Make me? Now that is an interesting idea. Is a conversation really no longer an option?

???: Well, when you put it like that, I seem kind of unreasonable!

???: That's unfair.

???: Oh, and I see the Avatars let you keep your toys too. Curious.

???: Well, when they get bored of you, can I have a turn playing with you?
???: There's so much we could learn from each other, I'm sure.

???: So heartless.
???: But... Hmm... This... this situation presents an opportunity!
???: You see, I am interested in the ruins of Myalos behind you.

???: I have no use for the entity known as Myalos. The ruins themselves though, well, I certainly like to believe I'm resourceful.

???: Ugh. Them again. Avatars this, Makers that.

???: Don't you ever think of anything else?
???: You already know how I feel about the Avatars, I'm sure. A shame you're still so attached to their commands.
???: But that means we find ourselves at an unfortunate impasse. And I've been so polite, too!

???: Remthalas has very clearly warned me so many times that I shouldn't underestimate you.
???: So why not a different tactic? This conversation has been quite pleasant, has it not?
???: Why don't we have a friendly contest?

???: You'll defend the ruins from whatever odds and ends I have at my command.
???: And if I find your performance satisfactory, I'll leave this place.
???: If not, then you will leave me to my research. Or you can help me with some of it! I'm sure there's much we can discover together.

???: Ahahaha!

???: Oh.
???: I'm sorry, were you serious?

???: Stop me... now?
???: No, if you want an "epic final encounter", that will have to wait. We need to build some tension, raise the stakes...
???: And have some fun!

???: Ah, which reminds me, I should get prepared.
???: See you soon, heroes!

Revelation

???: Hello again!
???: I am impressed, even with heroes such as yourselves. Not getting tired yet, are you?

???: Good, good to see such strength and defiance. After all, we're on the same team here.
???: We all want what's best for Lore and those that call it home.

???: And who told you that? The Avatars? And you just believe them?

???: The Avatars stand in the way of progress with their pathetic attempts at balancing that which balances itself.
???: They stand in the way of true freedom–

???: Now that was uncalled for! Here I am, trying to explain my perspective when–

???: Am I? That's news to me.

???: Nope, still in one piece.

???: You must be mistaken. Although...

???: Ly... Vhil, you called me?

???: My... face? Oh! That must be it! What a funny coincidence!

???: Well, to prevent any further unfortunate misunderstandings, I suppose a proper introduction is in order, if you'll allow me.

Notha: My name is Notha.

Notha: Notha Ly'Ehr.

Notha: From your glares, I take it you aren't going to introduce yourselves?
Notha: "Hi, I'm <Character>, nice to meet you!"
Notha: "Uaanta Fayt. Sorry for the mix up earlier!"

Notha: ...No? Okay.
Notha: But Ly'Vhil... Some... villain who shared my face...
Notha: I was wondering what became of the empty vessel.

Notha: It was some research funded by the Holy Throne at the time. Research into potential ways to extend life without necromancy.
Notha: That empty vessel was a duplicate of my body. A soulless husk that I thought locked away and discarded.
Notha: Couldn't have been me. I was imprisoned for oh, who knows how long by the... Avatars.

Notha: Can't claim credit for any monstering, sorry. I don't know whose soul was piloting that body, but it wasn't mine.

Notha: Born and raised! But that's all behind me now. I like to think I'm... beyond that.
Notha: I... am the one and only Ly'Ehr!

Notha: Well spotted!
Notha: No, I earned that name. I earned it myself.
Notha: I've uncovered secrets. Knowledge the Avatars sought to keep out of reach. To hold us back.
Notha: I know what tugs at our threads.
Notha: Their balance is nothing more than shoddily constructed chains binding us to perpetual mediocrity!
Notha: Chains that we strive and push against, searching for any foothold, any progress, only to be quashed beneath their arrogant fists!
Notha: That is the oppression I fight against. A freedom just out of reach that I would die for.
Notha: And I extend my hand to you as well, heroes.
Notha: Join me.

Notha: Entities as old as them don't just change.

Notha: And they'll keep trying, long after you're gone.
Notha: All the while suppressing the people of Lore, imposing their so-called balance that they themselves can't understand.
Notha: As Maleurous, I fight to bring freedom to those who do not know they are oppressed.

Notha: The Maleurous... An unfortunate collection of souls that the Avatars felt the need to categorize. Another of their mistakes.

Notha: A good question.

Notha: Yes... and no.

Notha: Gladly! It's a very interesting topic. You see, the Maleurous are all connected by a common factor.
Notha: Doom, Evil, whispers. Or perhaps... "the influence"?
Notha: Such... menacing titles. But what is it, really?
Notha: It is freedom. It is ambition.
Notha: It is progress, invention, and innovation!
Notha: It is what drives a forsaken hero home, rather than simply forgetting his past.
Notha: It is what drives the former servant, abandoned by so many masters, to seek his own path.
Notha: It is what drives the lost and alone to find a new family.
Notha: It is what gives spark to life from that which there was none.
Notha: It is what lets us cross boundaries to pursue the impossible.
Notha: It is what drives us to become more than we are, to better ourselves.
Notha: It is that which the Avatars seek to suppress!
Notha: Their perfect balance would leave us nothing more than obedient worshippers and mindless husks...
Notha: ...trusting only in their Good; Their farcical balance!

Notha: Ah, excuse me, I got carried away there.

Notha: You must have had some suspicion before, yes?
Notha: For there is Good and Evil in us all. In a way, every one of us could be considered Maleurous.

Notha: I may be many things, but a liar, I am not.
Notha: Consider that as we move into the next part of our contest, yes?
Notha: Although... if Myalos is entering the fray, I suppose I could spice things up.
Notha: Watch your step, okay?

Reclamation

Notha: Oh! Oh! I see what you're doing now! Myalos is planning to activate the ruins!
Notha: ...They can still be activated?

Notha: Very interesting.
Notha: Well, that makes me even more curious, so I hope you'll excuse me this... additional challenge.

Notha: Whatever gave you the impression that I was?
Notha: This one is a project I've been working on for a while now.
Notha: Do you mind giving it a test run?
Notha: Well done! It's a pity to lose so much work, but... such might...
Notha: No wonder the Avatars–

Notha: Oh? This should be interesting!

Notha: Fascinating!

Notha: Yes! That's it! Precisely!
Notha: That is the balance we make for ourselves.
Notha: The balance that the Avatars fear.
Notha: We make our own decisions. We consider our own Good and Evil.

Notha: Good questions, <Character>! First, regarding Remthalas...
Notha: Well, I can't speak for him, but if I had to guess... He may have slightly overreacted.
Notha: I imagine he saw Mr. Nameless as entering into servitude of the champions of the Avatars.
Notha: It's not my place to share his story, but at one point, he too served the Avatars. And then, in his time of need, they were absent. Abandoned him.
Notha: As for Sinnocence... That... Well, I did that for you.

Notha: As I'm sure you know, Sinnocence was suffering. His end was inevitable, whether at my hands, or yours.
Notha: But if I let you follow through with your orders from the Avatars, you'd have just been fulfilling your pre-ordained role.
Notha: You would have merely been another obedient, unflinching pawn.

Notha: Which I can imagine only led to even more questions. More doubts. Sounds like a success to me.
Notha: Questions are important. Seeking answers is vital. That is how we grow.
Notha: But the Avatars don't ask questions. They only impose their will.

Notha: An interesting proposition. It is undeniable that they are allowing you some autonomy.
Notha: But perhaps it is out of fear. Perhaps they know that were you to oppose them, they wouldn't be able to stop you.
Notha: And how long do you think they'll remember these "lessons"?
Notha: How long until they "forget" and begin fighting amongst themselves again, with the people of Lore suffering at their whims?

Notha: And for my risk receive only secretive half-truths and denials?
Notha: No. They must be eliminated. There is no other certainty. The laws and decrees of flailing imposters are beyond worthless.
Notha: Should you wish, my invitation is ever open.
Notha: To be a hero on your own terms.

Notha: Okay, okay! I can tell when I'm not... wanted.
Notha: I have urgent business elsewhere, anyway.
Notha: See you around, champions of the Avatars!

Notha: That was easier than expected!

Notha: So there are life support systems.

Notha: Yes. Yes, fascinating!
Notha: Such intriguing mechanisms, perhaps older than... No, most certainly older than even the Exalted! Ah, how wondrous!

Notha: Me!
Notha: Hello, Myalos!

Notha: I said I'd leave that place if I lost. I didn't say I'd leave the ruins.
Notha: Although... these are hardly ruins now are they?
Notha: I don't suppose you'd be kind enough to help me figure some of this stuff out?

Notha: Ah, no problem. I'll manage one way or another.

Notha: Is that a challenge? Ooh. You should try that sometime when I'm distracted!

Notha: Another puzzle to fix then. Power... Power... Hmm, I may have a potential solution for that. Ah, this is going to be so much fun, Myalos!

Notha: I truly don't mean you any harm, you know? In fact... this... "body" project you were so invested in...
Notha: It would certainly be an intriguing exercise to start with...
Notha: All I need is your cooperation. What do you say?
