Miniseries about a character who will be VERY important VERY soon. Within the Shining Path, all is not well...
About this creation
Sergeant: Watch your step.
During the events of TCE - Prologue...
Commander: You may commence the operation.
Sergeant: Right away.
A cultist watches the operation from a window.
Cultist 2: Via res magnas facit. The Path does great things, does it not, young Trado?
Trado: Perhaps. The last three the machine devoured yielded nothing, Seneca. What cause for this bloodshed?
The two walk through the fortress, deep in conversation.
Seneca: Careful what you say, Trado, careful what you think. Many have lost sight of the path poisoned by their own minds.
Trado: The inquisitors, the bishops...they all speak the same way. I tire of their mindless babbling. Eis nihil sumus, Seneca, we are nothing to them. In time we will be flicked away like fleas to serve the "greater good".
Trado: At least our allies, however much we dislike them, can think freely.
Seneca: Ne quaere, Trado. Do not question. They know the path better than any of us; that is why our bishops are bishops and so on. I have more pressing matters to tend to; Vale, Trado.
Trado: The path, the path, the path. The same...ugh. Seneca is right. I will not live long speaking in the open. Viam ambulemus, they tell us. Let us walk the path.
Trado: And so long as I remain in this stifling cage that is the path I must adhere to, till I uncover the secrets of this cult. Even the air reeks of corruption, conspiracy...lies.
