On Promises

“All heroes of the Prophecies suffer from loneliness, it is the price exacted by the Balance.  Take me, for example.  My promises isolated me from those I loved most.  If not for Velora, I would be as mad as the God-Emperors.  Even Valdarag, who wore the mantle of the Warrior for only a short time, paid the toll when he became the Eternal Warrior.  I feel for Andis, she has been without others of her kind far longer than she deserves, but her loneliness, and mine, is nothing next to the loneliness born by he whom I shall not name.  He has truly been alone.”   Kandol Elf Lord
