I was revulsed by the sight, not by her charm, or her beauty, which far surpassed any mortal beauty I had seen, but from the things I had heard. That the ones who followed the Good Path were intent on punishing all those that did not follow their ways, would take away my freedom as to be trapped in their relentless grip, but Selene also assured me that these things were false, as I had come to expect.

She then explained to me how they as a group had chosen me, one who could see all three Paths, one who worked for the advancement of the Guild, and of wisdom, and of knowledge of the Gods, to lead the group that they had chosen to battle the Dark Mages.
