- Corran Horn: It all comes down to the nature of evil, doesn't it? Evil is selfishness, while good is selfless. If I take an action that benefits me, only me, and hurts others, I am evil. If I do what must be done to prevent harm to others, if I become the buffer between them and evil, then my actions will be good.
- Elegos A'Kla: Your intentions will be good. Without consideration and forethought, however, your actions could still be evil. That is the problem, of course, evil is always easy, and restisting it is never so. Evil is relentless; and anyone, if they tire, if they are not vigilant, can fall prey to it.
- Corran Horn: And there will be situations where opposing evil may result in harm coming to the innocent.
- Elegos A'Kla: It does happen, yes. Life is not without pain, but life concerns itself with how we handle that pain, or joy, or confusion or triumph. LIfe is more than time passing before death, it is the sum and total of all we make of it. Decisions may not be easy, but many is the time when not making a decision, not taking an action is worse than a poor decision. Evil flourishes where it is not opposed, and those who are able to oppose it must to protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Only power is real, and the only real power is the power to destroy. Existence is fleeting. Destruction is eternal.
