My grandfather's rule was short, harsh but efficient. Under Samias, the Northcrest's pursuit of the Primal was born, yet he misunderstood the energy he sought to control. I admire his conviction yet mourn his ignorance.
Samias' legacy meant Harland was poised to succeed where my grandfather failed. But instead of advancing the cause, Harland proved to be a disorganized and undisciplined lecher who squandered decades of research.
I will not repeat mistakes.
This is why I am creating the Awakened, an exclusive collection of scientists, engineers, and philosophers united towards one goal: achieving absolute control over the Primal. With this energy, we will power The City's rebirth and usher in a new age of industrialized enlightenment.
We are few but we are the machine. Let us replace the old gods with progress.
