ProfileEdit

RAZIEL V.O.
I am Raziel.

RAZIEL V.O.
First-born lieutenant of my master and creator, the deified vampire Kain.

RAZIEL V.O.
It has been a millennium since my brethren and I stood with him and subjugated the land of Nosgoth – enslaving most of the pitiful remnants of humanity.

RAZIEL V.O.
Kain's contempt for mankind has driven them nearly to the brink of extinction.

RAZIEL V.O.
So when the rare opportunity struck to taste the blood of one so beautiful...

RAZIEL V.O.
I could not resist the temptation.

RAZIEL
What is this?

RAZIEL
Your blood is not human, woman.
Nor is it our holy vampiric blood.

WHAM!

RAZIEL
What manner of creature are you?

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS
I am as you, Raziel. Dead and yet living.
A construct of the elder gods.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS
They sent me to you to deliver a warning... a prophecy of the coming darkness.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS
The demise of the clans' glorious empire encroaches upon us.
Kain's arrogance has set the course that will doom us all.
By his creation of the vampire clans, souls destined for the hereafter are stuck in this despicable limbo.
There is no balance between life and death.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Raziel, redeemer and destroyer, fate has chosen you to balance the scales.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
You are Kain's first-born, the other clan leaders fear and loathe you, but you have their respect.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Kain knows this.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
You are the first to evolve beyond your creator, Raziel.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
The first to bear the gift of wings.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
But you must remember, Kain is a jealous god.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
And though you show obeisance by kneeling before him, he will not tolerate such an affront to his unchallenged divinity.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
As he created, so shall he destroy.

AAAAHHHHH

KAIN
Cast him in.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
He will rend the wings from your back and cast you in the Lake of the Dead – as a traitor and weakling before all your brethren.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
The water will burn you like white-hot fire, destroying that beautiful face of yours.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
But instead of death's sweet embrance, you will live on.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Reborn, with your outer shell matching your inner depravity.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS
Your thirst will no longer be quenched with blood, Raziel. Only with souls.
You will become a reaver of souls.

RAZIEL
You lie.

RAZIEL
You seek to turn me against my brethren with your false visions.
Your treachery will end now, witch.

RAZIEL
I cannot risk letting you tempt one less resolute than myself.

THUNK!

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS
HA! HA! HA!
I am your future, Raziel.
Look at me and see what will become of that handsome face.

RAZIEL
Shut your mouth, witch, or I will rip your tongue from your throat.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS
Afraid of the truth?
Gaze into my eyes and see what will become of your much vaunted "high blood."

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
The evolution of your kind will take a dismal turn, Raziel.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Melchiah, the youngest of your brethren, will degenerate into a monstrous beast, but still be cursed with his human frailties.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
The noble Zephon's once "human" appearance will be warped into a distorted reflection of his black soul.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
You will be forced to seek them out and destroy them all, Raziel.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Fratricide will consume you.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Even the high priestess of the vampire worshippers will fall before you.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Her sorcerous possession of others will not save her from your wrath.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
The bells of the Silenced Cathedral will ring out across the land once again.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
The future is before you, Raziel.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Fate has determined your course.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
You must unveil the secrets of the ancients and overcome the challenges to your ascension.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Your coming has been foretold, Raziel.

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
Fulfill the Legacy of Kain

CONSTRUCT OF THE ELDER GODS O.S.
...and become the Soul Reaver

RAZIEL
Enough!

RAZIEL
We were lost in the depravity of humanity when Kain found us and bestowed upon us our vampiric gift.
Share your tales with the others I have sent to the stygian depths.

RAZIEL V.O.
I am Raziel, first-born of Kain's lieutenants. I will neither destroy nor betray the kin of my high blood as this witch has foretold.

RAZIEL V.O.
I do not fear Kain, for I am one of the few that know his truth.

RAZIEL V.O.
That he was mortal once, as were we all.

RAZIEL V.O.
Kain chose me to share in his divinity and for that I shall be eternally grateful.

RAZIEL V.O.
Even now I go to see my master to share in his vision for our destiny.
