"I am Cadis Etrama Di Raizel. The absolute who protects all, the Noblesse. I had a long dream during the past 820 years. I remember, what happened that day. War, conspiracy, treachery. In spite of all this chaos I wanted to protect (you). Muzaka, and Ashleen. I did not want to lose you. Even if the sacred duty of Noblesse leads us to the destruction..."
