End Game Part Five: The Traitor

While his brethren are out, seeking to destroy the dual incursions of Demons and Unicron...

Liege has waited, patiently.

His goals have always differed from those of the other thirteen, and now that they are distracted he can put forth a bid for his true desire: Control of the Lambda.

He appears on the network standing on a snow-capped balcony, shadowed by the near-perpetual darkness of his frigid towers.

"Listen, and listen well. To fight is hopeless. We have no guarantee of Primus's return, and we have even less guarantee that we can hold our own against this dual-sided assault. There is another way."

From the top of his tower, Liege raises his arm...and the snow-clouds above him disperse, whipping small flakes across the scene as the Lambda looms--green and ominous in a star-filled sky.

"I have broached a contract with the chaos-bringer. If we allow him into this universe, access to all other universes will be granted to us. Our horizons will be limitless. Put down your arms and rally to me...if you want to explore, or learn, or simply want to return home."

Behind him, a separate portal opens--brilliant and green just like the Lambda.

"Together, we can stop Prima and Vector, and gain something more worthwhile than this useless chunk of rock we have tried to call home. I will be waiting."

[[Those who wish to rally with Liege may come to his temple. Although fighting is not required for this path, he and Unicron will look favorably upon any who proceed through the small tear behind him to help repel Prima and Vector and their forces from the Maw. Those who do will find the gravity of the Lambda working for them--while you won't be able to fly, you will be able to move through the space around the Lambda with ease, re-orienting yourself as you see fit.]]

[Wing scowls at the camera] I would rather fight this evil than submit to it. You've taken the coward's course.

No. I do not condemn for cowards those who cannot, or choose not, to fight. I condemn for cowards those who betray their brethren to join with the very embodiment of chaos and destruction.

You're a fool if you believe for a moment something like that will keep its word.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - Chh!)

Then until it does I will do what it right, and give my all to stopping it.
knight_light: [smile] (Wing - Very disappointed)

Look what I just found buried in my inbox! ~,~;;

Will you be? For how long? And will you be able to live with yourself knowing you've abandoned your brothers and those who look up to you, those who bear your mark?

[a beat] I cannot believe that Unicron is stupid. Why does he want us to not fight? Perhaps he knows that if we do we have a chance to stop him? What is it about this Cybertron that draws him? For a god who thrives on chaos and destruction, he could cause far more of both on a more populated version of this world. So why this one?

Have you questioned at all? Perhaps we're not walking into an impossible fight, just a hard one.
