“Do you feel it as well, Gehn?”

The former Azure Flame held his head low, focusing on the rocky outcropping he had watched the battle from. Lord Matthius was right. The air had gone cold, and the daemonic energy that had saturated the whole city no longer lingered. Defeat was close.

“I do, Lord. We have failed.”

The Chaos Lord chuckled. “The sword, Gehn. It is gone. But,” the Prophet’s voice became a leathery whisper, “the will of the Gods. It is done.”

Gehn looked up at his new master, shocked. “This was planned?”

“Who can say their purposes, Gehn? It is not we who have failed. Esarhaddon has failed. His plot is unwound, and his Sicarii now flee in disunity. That which serves the Great Ones does not always serve their followers. Remember that, Gehn. Know that, one day, you will be called upon to sacrifice your life and your dreams to their power. When that day comes, Gehn, you must remember that which so many forget – that you are already dead, and your soul long since commended to Their service. Remember that, my pupil, and you will do great things in the name of your Masters.”

Gehn nodded, slowly, unsure of what the future held for him now.

“Now,” Matthius pivoted swiftly, returning to the small shuttle the had landed in. “Come, Lord Gehn. We have much work to do.”
