Iadoa: So, <hero>, we finally meet! You are as I've found - valliant, commited, and so skilled! Excellent.

Hero: …Do I know you? Because I'm pretty sure we've never met. I'd remember that outfit.

Iadoa: You surely do not. But I know you. Did my golems not tell you? To understand the nature of a thing, you must interact with it.
Iadoa: I needed to observe you. See what you would do, how you would react, to a perceived threat.

Hero: I'm just guessing here, but with all those golems dropping the C- word, that makes you a Chaos Lord!
Hero: What the -

Iadoa: I am afraid we do not have much time for such actions, as understandable as they are.
Iadoa: I am like nothing you have encountered before. An unfinished - uncommitted - Chaos Lord.

Hero: un… finished? WHAT does "uncommitted" mean?!

Iadoa: I am here to lead you to your Destiny. To achieve your full potential, you must understand how you - and your world - came to be.

Hero: I have two problems with what you jut said. 1) You didn't answer me.
Hero: 2) This is ridiculous. YOU Chaos Lord, ME Hero. You wreck, I re-build. That's how this goes.

«Iadoa rolls his eyes.»

Iadoa:*sigh* Students. Always the same, no matter the century.

<Change to Time Void

Hero: Where the - WHERE in Zeuster's left tailfeather did you TAKE us?!

Iadoa: Peace, <Hero>. THIS is the true interior of the Library. The space between lives, worlds, and times.
Iadoa: What you saw before is nothing more than another construct. One more… comfortable than this.

Hero: As comfortable as my WEAPON in you CHEST?

«The hero attacks Iadoa but is teleported back to a platform.»

Iadoa: You view me as an enemy. The enemy…
Iadoa: There is an element of truth in that. But not the whole truth.
Iadoa: Things are not always what they first appear to be. That is the first lesson you must learn.
Iadoa: During your time in my Library, I gained much knowledge of your… you-ness.
Iadoa: And I am pleased. But we must move on.
Iadoa: I've seen your future…
Iadoa: And Drakath's.

«The hero lies down onto the platform.»

Hero: Please, keep talking. I'll just be over here, stranded in the middle of no-when, resting.
Hero: Got to save my strength for the coming battle. Against YOU. Whatever you are.

Iadoa: That is an excellent idea. But for now, listen.
Iadoa: "You asked what I meant by "unfinished" and "uncommitted". You desire to know who I am.

«The hero sits up.»

Iadoa: Whatever you think you know about Chaos and Chaorupption pales compared to the reality.
Iadoa: Those who welcome Chaorupption are unimaginably enhanced. For those who do not… unimaginable pain teaches them to bow.
Iadoa: To feel your body succumb - the blood in your veins changing to acid as it runs under skin - that is pain enough.
Iadoa: To feel YOU - your will, your sense of self - irrevocably altered, your thoughts and decisions not your own…

<Change to Time Library

Iadoa: I do not know how long I have until I become the Chaos Lord I am destined to be.
Iadoa: Before that happens, you must become the Hero you were meant to be. That Lore MUST have.
Iadoa: And though you may not have known, Drakath's fate is tied to yours, as well.

Narrator: That which lies beyond his Gate requires much to enter our world. Your actions will determine when - or if - he succeeds.

Iadoa: Come, we have much to do. Journey to the northern-most Portal.

Hero: Got it. But… after you. You understand.

«Screen fades black and appear in "The Span"»

Hero: …Is this dangerous, what I'm going to learn?

Iadoa: Yes.

Hero: Will you try to kill me?

Iadoa: A some point in the near future? Yes.

Hero: Do I have a choice in this?

Iadoa: We all have a choice. Mine is to teach you while I am still… me.

Hero: Then we'd better begin. It sounds like we're both running out of time.

«Iadoa (NPC) enters and dispels Warlic (Golem), and the hero raises his weapon.»
Iadoa: So, <hero>, we meet again! You remain just as I left you - valiant, committed to your purpose, and so skilled! Excellent.

Hero: …Do I know you? Because I'm pretty sure we've never met. I'd remember that outfit.

«Iadoa changes into his New Years' form

Iadoa: We surely have. You will remember me, I think, as the over-loud caricature of a Chaos Lord that you met as the new year began?

«The hero lunges forward.»

Hero: YOU! You're - but you - you ATTACKED me! You tried to stop time itself!

Iadoa: Did my golems not tell you? To understand the nature of a thing, you must interact with it.
Iadoa: I needed to observe you. See what you would do, how you would react, to a perceived threat.

Hero: Perceived?! You're a Chaos Lord! You ARE a threat!

«Iadoa stops the hero's attack in time.»

Hero: What the -

Iadoa: I am afraid we do not have much time for such actions, as understandable as they are.
Iadoa: I am like nothing you have encountered before. An unfinished - uncommitted - Chaos Lord.

Iadoa: There is an element of truth in that. But not the whole truth.

Hero: You are a Chaos Lord! Lim and I fought you. I won. You ARE the enemy!

Iadoa: … Yes and no. Lim did as I asked; he understood. You fought who I appeared to be. In doing so, I gained much knowledge of your… you-ness.
Iadoa: And I am pleased. But we must move on.
