I don’t believe in the gods’ existence. Man is the master of his own fate, not the gods. The gods are man’s creation to give answers that they are too afraid to give themselves.
Masters. We all have them. Every relationship’s a power struggle. Some of us need to be controlled. Once in a while, the best course of action is to just ride shotgun. Stare at the road ahead, and hope it leads somewhere you want to go.
You might be a Time Master, but I’m a master of time. And I play a far deeper game than you could ever hope to comprehend.[to Rip]
The benefit of being a Time Master is that the length and breadth of history gives one perspective. I’ve seen darker days. I’ve seen men of steel die and dark knights fall, and even then I accomplished my mission no matter what.
In 2166, an immortal tyrant named Vandal Savage conquered the world and murdered my wife and child. I have assembled an elite team to hunt him throughout time and stop his rise to power. Unfortunately, my plan is opposed by the body I’d sworn my allegiance to, the Time Masters. In the future, my friends may not be heroes, but if we succeed, they will be remembered as legends.
I’ve made my choice. It may be wicked, it may mean I go to a fiery and horrible place when I die, but it’s too late to stop now. I will not stop. I’m going to win or die confronting the Master. I will not fade away as a weak old man.
The Dreams and Nightmares no longer seem to recognize their master. I will remind them and take from them what I require.
Parents, wives, children, they all disappoint us, Eldritch. How could they not? They’re humans. But the Master is different. He will never let you down or betray you.
