Believe it or not, I always wanted to be a hero. I wanted to save the world. I wanted to make it a better place for the citizens of Allag. And mayhaps, for a short time when I found fleeting success, some people did consider me a hero.
But the ways in which I went about doing things caught up to me. And I’ve learned since then – one cannot sacrifice one’s moral standing, even for the greater good, and expect it to bring about a good change.
Wrongs and evils always beget more of their kind. Wrong cannot make a right, no matter how good the intentions were behind the wrong.
I don’t deserve to even dream of being a hero anymore.
But if I did reach for that lofty position, I would do it far differently than I did in my past life.
