| What has Alexis done? How could he stray so far from my orders, without even informing me? The scale of the threat he has wrought is beyond all measure! Titan says that the Gold of War is an immortal creature of pure destruction that seeks power by spreading chaos and war. His might is almost inconceivable - even the most fearless of mortals go insane in his presence. There are already reports of civilians and militiamen killing indiscriminately near the Varium Mines - it seems that the deity's influence is quickly destabilizing the region.
Worse still, Alexis is not responding to our messages...I fear that he, too, may have become one of the God of War's puppets. We cannot afford to have a madman tear us apart from within just when the conflict with the Legions is escalating. It pains me to say this, but there is only one way forward. Eliminate Alexis to prevent the God of War from manipulating the Uprising.
|It is done. Alexis, my dear friend, dead on my own orders. A harsh but necessary decision - I simply couldn't risk repeating the tragedy at Baelius' Citadel. Ten years ago, Caden betrayed us just as we were about to defeat. Baelius himself, leaving the Exile in tatters and cursing Delta V to another decade of Legion rule. Alexis's loyalty is indisputable, of course, but he may do in his madness what Caden did i his wickedness. This was the right choice for the Uprising, for freedom.
...Still, I cannot help but indulge in regret. Surely there was something else I could have done? A way of breaking the deity's control...or perhaps Alexis was able to resist the God of War in the first place. Was it truly necessity that forced my hand? Or was it cowardice and fear that led me to take the easy way out...?
Enough of this. I of all people must stand strong. I cannot allow tragedy to cloud my mind. I cannot allow prejudice to hinder my cause. We have a crisis on our hands and we need to rise to the occasion. Soldier, it's time to save the world.
