“My dear, you have walked this path under my guidance now for 13 long years. Many have joined you, and though they seemed steadfast and honourable, one by one you have seen them fall by the wayside. Some have tried walking the path of truth towards enlightenment in many lifetimes but were not strong enough to complete it. Infiltrators come in many guises, using flattery and the power of persuasion, to lead them away from the path which their soul was pleading them to remain on. Once the Dark Ones get a foot in the door, they convince them to take another course of action that will remove them from their true path. This happens over and over again. It takes strength of character to remain on the path of enlightenment.
