Three long months passed. Slowly the darkness is gathering in Oceanus and beyond. The ties to the past return yet the inevitable future lies ahead. Long have I remained in the shadows, watching the world go by in all it's beauty. But now the time is coming for me to take a more active role. As mine and the worlds greatest enemy is soon to come to power, there is a more imminent danger that the worlds greatest heros face. This danger, however, is the very thing they are trying to protect. The humans.
It is for this very reason, now that the days are dark and we all have fear and pain in our hearts, that I... Edward Gabriel, return.
