Location: Broken Circuit (Part 2), The Descent, The Great One
Broken Circuit (Part 2)
???: Let them in.
???: The Slayer brings guests, uninvited.
???: Our old... friend?
???: And yet... you are.
???: To you and your bonded human, we shall allow entry.
???: Welcome to the Gauntlet.
The Great One
Kratos: We are Kratos.
Kratos: You are... smaller than expected.
Kratos: The... Destroyer.
Kratos: Your power is unmistakable.
Kratos: How long has it been...?
Kratos: Do you trust this human you are bonded to?
Kratos: Even if they didn't have that trinket of an amulet, would you stand by her/his side? | Even without those trinkets that the DragonLords require, you stand by her/his side...
Kratos: When this world was first formed, two dragons were created to be its guardians.
Kratos: One to destroy and refresh.
Kratos: And so the world existed. Until one day, the destroyer and the creator... vanished.
Kratos: They were beings of order. They were meticulous.
Kratos: They blamed each other. Fought. Reconciled. Fought again.
Kratos: If the original dragons were lost, then they would create new dragons to maintain the balance.
Kratos: Flawed and incomplete creations, compared to the majesty of the original two.
Kratos: That is, up until the eight guardians discovered a pair of eggs.
Kratos: And so the cycle continued.
Kratos: Lost to myth and legend.
Kratos: We did not know what became of them.
Kratos: We do not remember, little one.
Kratos: Time continues its flow, and we continue to exist.
Kratos: You fear the fate of the frozen city.
Kratos: You do not know the fate of Lore.
Kratos: Such is the balance of Lore. There will always be saviors to face its destroyers.
Kratos: Did you not listen to our tale earlier?
Kratos: Humans were not a factor in the world's creation or purpose.
Kratos: We will care for those we can, of course, but why struggle against inevitability?
Kratos: Such is the balance of Lore. There will always be destroyers to face its saviors.
Kratos: You challenge your destiny, little one.
Kratos: Perhaps... we have found... too much comfort in repose.
Kratos: What of you, human?
Kratos: And what would you do if we refused to spur the DragonLords to action?
Kratos: Such conviction.
Kratos: But we have never met one so endorsed by the Destroyer.
Kratos: We will inform the Slayer.
Kratos: You know how it is.
Kratos: They landed on our back, woke us up, and started asking for advice.
Kratos: But that began to feel... dishonest.
Kratos: We drew him to us.
Kratos: And the DragonLords have stopped pestering us.
Kratos: Do visit us again in another couple hundred years or so, small one.
Also known as The Great One.
