Ya know what I hate? I know... I know... Easy answer might be that I hate myself. Nah. That ain't it. Way I feel right now...after everything I did...everyone I hurt... I don't think enough of myself to hate. When I held that hammer...when it had ahold of me...I couldn't stop myself. And I still remember every ugly thing the Serpent's avatar -- Angrir -- whispered in my head. But now...more'n anything...I hate the idea of hurting my friends.

You know...for many years I was used against my will...used for evil. But guilt can be a cruel master, too, if you let it. I'd never suggest that you forget the things you've done. But rather than letting your shame crush you, I'd suggest you work to set things right.

No, my friend...I could never beat you! I know that now! I could crush your bones, and break your body--but I would never conquer your spirit! Any world that could spawn one such as you--is truly the worthiest of all! I sense that one day my people will battle yours for the total supremacy of the cosmos--but that will be in the eons to come! And what a glorious competition it shall be! Farewell, my friend! I have endless universes yet to visit! Infinite worlds to offer my gift! We shall never meet again! A pity! For to you--and you alone--I would offer the supreme glory of...a rematch!
