BLURB

I did not get here on my own, but I really should not elaborate. I am self-begot, self-raised. The rules of Tartarus dictate my silence on the subject of my provenance. I can say, however, that I am utterly and vilely persuasive when it comes to the matter of morality, which really is nott as black and white as you people seem to think it is. My tongue is iron strong from perpetual routines of discourse, and will slither in your ear at the most opportune moment. It is always your choice, you know. My charisma does not have to always mean your impious triumph; you do that all on your own. Skepticism does not begin to describe what drives my position. If I were you, I would think a little more… maliciously. Actually, if I were you, I would not think at all. I would just stand there, and let me set the stage, and see where this self-imposed, completely fictional morality takes you. Shall we? [Kathleen McCampbell]
