No Rest For Dragons
???: Our burdens are ours alone to bear. They are what they are.
???: The terror begets peace.
???: To what pleasure do we owe this visit?
???: They have not yet met us.
???: Are we to leave that one to you then?
???: Very well.
???: Then let them come.
???: And if they don't, we shall hunt them to the ends of Lore.
Await The Calm (Retired)
???: We are meditating.
???: Come back later.
???: Knock yourselves out.
Await The Calm
???: And what would you use such power for, Champion of the Avatars?
???: We can hear you, you know.
Voyna: Please, call us Voyna. And please, answer our question, Uaanta.
Voyna: You call this a waste. But what would you use this power for?
Voyna: You intruded on our resting grounds, and interrupted our meditation.
Voyna: We would like to know what drives you.
Voyna: Then we answer you.
Voyna: Then we are more alike than you think, Uaanta.
Voyna: This Darkness, this Doom, is but a tool. We use it to protect those that cannot defend themselves.
Voyna: We defend this continent from the scourge, the betrayal of the dragons!
Voyna: And yet you claim moral superiority because the Avatars tell you that your actions are correct.
Voyna: So full of righteous fury. We know that feeling well.
Voyna: But you have sated our curiosity, for now. We will answer your questions.
Voyna: We are warrior and spirit, bound by ancient pact. We saved our people from the betrayal of the dragons, and we defend them still.
Voyna: We are the Angel!
Voyna: We know why you are here, servants of the Avatars. You are here to retrieve what is so precious to them.
Voyna: You see?
Voyna: Do you see?
Voyna: You serve these masters, yet they do not give you the information you need.
Voyna: They hide and obscure knowledge. They send you to your Doom, expecting faith and trust in return.
Voyna: We serve nothing but our own justice. If that aligns us against the Avatars, so be it.
Voyna: Where were they when our villages were destroyed by the dragons who swore to protect them?
Voyna: Where were they when our comrades fell in the mountains, far from home, to dragonbreath and claws?
Voyna: No, they were not with us, but the Whisper was.
Voyna: The Whisper understood our pain. Our helplessness.
Voyna: And so we accepted it, and we saved our people.
Voyna: And now... we are one.
Voyna: The Avatars are fools who cannot clean up their own messes.
Voyna: We will stop the threat of the dragons.
Voyna: And we will save all of Lore from the inevitable betrayal.
Voyna: Including yours.
Voyna: Did it not happen already before?
Voyna: With... Caitiff?
Voyna: We make our own choices. <Dragon> made theirs, and allowed itself to be used against you.
Voyna: Who is to say it wouldn't make that decision again?
Voyna: We suppose it would be a waste of all of our time for us to ask that you forfeit the dragon to us willingly?
Voyna: We like you, Uaanta. You're decisive.
Voyna: You regret nothing.
Voyna: Come. We await you still, deeper in the catacombs.
Voyna: That dragon will know the path.
The Angel's Tomb (Retired)
???: It helps.
The Angel's Tomb
Voyna: So, you have arrived.
Voyna: Despite appearances, we enjoyed our discussion from earlier.
Voyna: We don't suppose you would be willing to humor us and talk a while longer?
Voyna: Very well. In that case, let us battle, as warriors–
Voyna: Typical honorless dragon! We have a special fate in store for you, Destroyer!
Voyna: We made a promise to the Dreamfarer... but we can still break you.
Voyna: So be it.
Voyna: We yield.
Voyna: We will not fight your judgement.
Voyna: To think... the Dreamfarer was right.
Voyna: We have underestimated you.
Voyna: Such is our honor.
Voyna: You wish for us to give up our entire meaning, our being?
Voyna: Amusing. We knew we saw something in you that we liked.
Voyna: We accept. Take your prize back to your masters. Let them know that the Angel of Azaveyr will no longer be a threat.
Voyna: Farewell... champions of the Avatars.
Voyna: So... this is the end of our partnership...
Voyna: At last... the calm has come... for me.
Also known as the Angel of Azaveyr.
