Tamquam deos esse volui. Et percussimus eos.
Latin’s a fickle beast but I think this is about as good as I can get it, having run a couple versions of this back and forth.
I am arrogant because I must be. There is no other way to get to the better world. I have the knowledge required, and my greatest threat let me muzzle it willingly. I have learned from my mistakes. This will be the last great change, but this time, it will endure. We were once pawns in a game of time and space, of another world.
