Original English transcript:
Dark Chronicle – Raziel In The Underworld
Raziel is on his knees before the Elder God, weak and apparently at the point of starvation.
Surrender, Raziel. Abandon this petty rebellion. It was I who made you. Your life had played out, and in my grace, I spared you. You are my reaper of souls. You have no other purpose, no higher destiny – just this. Accept your calling, Raziel. Let go of these vain hopes. Relinquish your will, and feed.
Raziel: (weakly defiant)
What do you profit from this defiance?
There’s some grim satisfaction in infuriating you.
My patience is eternal, Raziel. How many aeons can you bear to languish here? The Wheel of Fate must turn; all are redeemed in the cleansing agony of birth, death and rebirth. This is the Engine of Life – the purifying rhythm of the universe – to which all souls are irresistibly drawn. Yours is a necessary and noble function, Raziel.
Enough of your sermonizing – are you trying to bore me into submission? Why must this game go on? We both know what you are. You’re no better than the vampires you so despise – a voracious parasite cloaking its appetite in a shroud of righteousness. I refuse to do your will.
I can see into your heart, Raziel. It is not your will, but cowardice that keeps you here.
Elder God: (contemptuously)
You know what fate awaits you when you leave the underworld. That phantom weapon you bear is a constant reminder, isn’t it? The Sword is waiting for you out there somewhere, and you tarry so as not to meet it.
I could not deny it. As long as I lingered here, defying my captor, I was able to postpone what I feared was my inevitable doom: to become the ravenous spirit imprisoned in the Reaver blade. But that sentence was no worse than the stalemate I now endured. Better to face one’s destiny than cower from it.
Harvester of souls I created you, and to this function, my angel of death, you will return.
Raziel: (apparently resigned)
Enough. Yes. I submit.
Very good. Indulge your hunger.
A soul is presented to Raziel who hesitates, then quickly consumes it.
Yes… Embrace your calling, Raziel. You will find that, just as defiance has its price, so obedience has its rewards.
Two of the Elder God’s tentacles uncurl, revealing a doorway. Raziel rises.
And submission is not always what it seems.
