What's going to happen the first time they expect me to be there for them and I'm not? I don't even know who to trust. Moya is still running around, planning God-knows-what. And Zeke... I don't know what to think... I've never been more alone..."

"Hahaha! Because of me, Empire City is a wasteland. I've taken this place notch by notch, and it's never getting back up again. Kessler thought he was preparing me to face some beast, that I'd use my powers for the greater good. What an idiot. These powers are only good for one thing, letting me take what I want, when I want. In a place with no law, the strong take what they want, and the weak are their slaves, their playthings. And no one is stronger than me..."
