«Scene: the three meet Enn'tröpy, the translator from Dreadrock Citadel, inside the citadel»

Polish: Enn'tröpy?!

Enn'tröpy: Hello, Polish.

Polish: YOU'RE the one trying to revive the Inquisition?!

Enn'tröpy: Who ELSE would it be?

Polish: But… but WHY?! You of all people should know how dangerous they were!

Enn'tröpy: Don't act so surprised. After all, you're here for the same reason I am.

Polish: I most certainly am NOT!

Enn'tröpy: Oh, please. Don't forget — I know what you REALLY are.

«Question marks appear over the Hero's head»

Enn'tröpy: Has he convinced you that you're here to help Murry?
Enn'tröpy: You're not. At least, not directly. You're really here to help Polish.
Enn'tröpy: You see, if Murry dies, then so does he.

Hero: What? How could you possibly know that?

Enn'tröpy: Because I'm here with MY "Murry", too.

I'VE GOT HIM HELD IN A ROOM DEEP WITHIN THE CITADEL…
HOOKED UP TO MACHINES THAT ARE KEEPING HIM ALIVE.

«Scene: Close-up of Enn'tröpy»

Enn'tröpy: What he REALLY needs is for me to recombine with him…
Enn'tröpy: …to replace the magic that was extracted from him long ago.
Enn'tröpy: But if I did THAT, then I would no longer exist.
Enn'tröpy: Not as myself, anyway.
Enn'tröpy: So instead, I keep him alive with the Inquisition's stores of vacuumed mana…
Enn'tröpy: And vacuum up more magic to replenish what I use.

«Scene zooms out»

Polish: That's why you're bringing back the Inquisition!

Enn'tröpy: You have to admit, Polish - it's a MUCH better solution.

Polish: No… it only harms even MORE people.

«Close-up of Enn'tröpy»

Enn'tröpy: Maybe so.
Enn'tröpy: But… not ME.

«Enn'tröpy fades away»

Hero: Enn'tröpy said he knew what you REALLY are…
Hero: …and that you needed to recombine with Murry to save him.
Hero: Polish, what did he mean? Are you really…

Polish: …the magic they extracted from Murry, yes.
Polish: Normally it comes out in tiny, barely-sentient sprites.
Polish: But Murry really WAS a great wizard.

AND HIS MAGIC TOOK ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN, BOTH HERE…

«Scene fades to black, leaving only the red silhouettes of Polish and Murry. These two silhouettes are replaced by the silhouettes of Enn'tröpy and his Murry. The background fades in, showing Citadel soldiers standing behind Enn'tröpy in the Citadel»

Grand Inquisitor Murry: You will NEVER get away with this! You can't overthrow ME!

AND IN THE MIRROR REALM.

«Scene: the Hero and Polish inside the abandoned citadel»

Polish: Lucky for him, right? Not everyone has their own extracted magic helping them survive.

Hero: If we can find that room Enn'tröpy was talking about…

Polish: …we might be able to use those same machines to reverse the process, yes.
Polish: Here's hoping we won't be too late.
