Quote1 I remember the headlines. That's what changed you, wasn't it? That's when you were plunged into the darkness. You're still little more than a brutalized child for whom the world is all shadows and fear. I pity you. I suppose it's a kind of Hell. But don't worry. I will deliver you. Quote2
-- Mister Whisper
