Here you have a man who stopped at nothing to change the world. He mastered sorceries of frost, miracles of the moon. He partnered with a kingdom-ending flame and took advantage of the Deep.

The dragons shall never be forgotten… We knights fought valiantly, but for every one of them, we lost three score of our own. Exhiliration, pride, hatred, rage… The dragons teased out our dearest emotions. Thou will understand, one day. At thy twilight, old thoughts return, in great waves of nostalgia.

Seeker of fire, coveter of the throne.
I am Vendrick, ruler of Drangleic.
As flame rises, so does it fade. Such is the way of things.
Do you intend to link the fire?
Then you must first take the throne.
Prove your worth. Find the ancient crowns.
Seek adversity, and they will be yours.
And your wishes, granted.

Seeker of fire, deliverer of crowns.
What do you see in the flames ?
Find the crowns, and your own answers.
The crowns hold the strength of lords from times long past.
Seek adversity.
As befits you, seeker of fire, coveter of the throne.
I am no king. I am more fit to be a jester…
I was unaware of my own blindness.
We are feeble vessels, with feebler souls.
We would cast aside the prop of life, only to face greater hardship.
Are you another such fool, or something more?
I fail to see your design, young moth.
But I see very little, these days…

Seeker of fire, conqueror of Dark.
I, too, sought fire, once.
With fire, they say, a true king can harness the curse.
A lie. But I knew no better…
Seeker of fire, you know not the depths of Dark within you.
It grows deeper still, the more flame you covet.
Flame, oh, flame…
I am king of this wretched, unravelled kingdom.
I subdued the Giants, and claimed their strength.
So that I might step closer to fire…
Drangleic will fall, the fire will fade, and the souls of old will reemerge.
With Dark unshackled, a curse will be upon us…
And men will take their true shape…
