Level 40 quote

The spells I command are often derided as forbidden, dark magic due to their destructive potential. My son Canas had a natural aptitude for it, but my grandson did not inherit the necessary fortitude of mind. I had hoped he might be able to carry on my work, and my disappointment led me to being...harsh with him. Elder magic is mighty, but it takes in equal measure from the one using it... A price too costly for my progeny. In the end, my work will die with me. There are a few loose ends to tie up, but I trust you are up to the task.
— After reaching level 40 at five-star rarity.
