Then Lilith commanded that I stop, saying
I have over-reached my bounds
That I had gone too far
That I threatened my very essence.

She used her powers and commanded me to
Because of her power, I heeded her,
but deep within me a seed was planted
a seed of rebellion
and when she turned her face from me,
I opened myself up once more, to the Night,
and saw the infinite possibilities in the stars
and knew that a path of power, a path of
was mine for the taking.
And so I awakened in me this Final Path,
from which all other paths would grow.

With this newest power, I broke the bonds
that the Lady of Night put on me
I left the Damned Queen that evening
cloaking myself in shadows
I fled the lands of Nod
and came at last to a place
where not even her demons could find me.
