Koba takes Carlos aside and speaks with him away from the others in a quiet
yes serious voice. "I do understand a few things that you may or may not
have understood yourself. I know that he is simply a man who had delusions
of power, and most likely a pawn to some more sinister being. I understand
that giving him that ring may have made our escape easier, but think of
this. I've been on this continent for maybe twice as long as you, and in
that time, this world has not gotten one slight better for people like us.
Every day there is a new deamon, new DBee invasion, or those toying with the
dead. A new imminant threat to humans and peaceful DBees presents itself
every time that sun comes over the horizon. People die by the thousands
every day to evil beings. Cities just like this one are burned to the
ground. What has saved us so far is the fact that we have not handed over
everything to those who would wish to take over the world. Cities are
rebuilt, good people never make pacts with evil men, and those willing to
fight to stem those evil hordes." Koba sighs and then points Carlos over to
Osiris. "That man has probibally been around for longer then anyone I've
ever met. People of his order stand in the face of the greatest evil. People
like him don't make pacts with men like Bruth, and people like him are why
this world isn't already in the grip of evil."
With a deep breath Koba tries to calm himself down and speaks with a much
more sincere and subdued voice. "Carlos, right now we're under attack and
it's scaring me too, but we need to do our best to stop it rather then ally
ourselves with any part of it. Bruth is dead, and I wish we could have
captured him insted, but if we're still looking for a way out of the city
those two prisioners may be more receptive to helping us now."
