It struck me recently that I've never actually told anyone just what The Masked Jackal represents, and yet the whole city is spot on in their opinions. Misfortune and lies and terror... everything I'd hoped It would be, everything my God stands for. It makes me laugh when I think about it.

Go ahead and clean up my nests, Telantha. There's an overabundance of bedding available; I can always paint a new one, a different wall. The Masked Jackal will see all, be all, in the end anyway.

I was content only a few years ago to lurk in the shadows and take only little, to stay in the back of society and ultimately do nothing. I actually stopped counting the years it had been since I'd taken mortal life. Mortals really seemed to hate it when I do that. But that's changed. If they're going to cage me simply for what I am, then I must defend myself. It is not their fault, I know, but ignorance is still ignorance even if it is taught. And most are beyond redemption. Better to put them down than to let them suffer. It is mercy.

For now, though, I will contemplate Emeraude's comb.
