Zealot kicks the door open which startles Dai Gensui out of a daze brought upon him from viewing dank memes on the internet. He quickly unplugs the computer and shuffles some desk papers around before speaking.
Zachariah Zealot: As I expected…
Dai Gensui: Mr. Zealot! This is..an unexpected surprise. I wasn’t expecting-
Zealot: Anyone to even remember this place?
Dai Gensui: Hey now. I’ll have you know that NEBULA Factory is-
Zealot: Was a prime place to develop talent. Just because you slapped a belt on some French-Canadian doesn’t exactly mean the factory is back up and running you know.
Dai Gensui: I’m doing the best with what I got.
Zealot: Speaking of which, I’m here to take the only talent you got in your current batch. Not that he was incredibly busy anyway, but I’m here to take him away from this place.
???: You will do no such thing.
The conversation is interrupted by Richard Lionheart walking into the door.
Dai Gensui: And I think that’s my cue to leave...and remember to lock my office door.
Zealot: We’ll discuss this later.
Zealot turns his attention to Richard. He doesn’t nearly have as much hair as he did before their last match together where the big explosion happened. He is also now dressed in the traditional black with white crosses best represented by the Knights Hospitalier.
Zealot: What exactly makes you think that you can stop me, Richard?
Richard Lionheart: The lord can’t possibly be pleased with this “inquisition” that you’ve set yourself in motion. I plan to quell this spark before it bursts into flames .
Zealot scoffs and shakes his head.
Zealot: Richard, I fear you have taken far too many blows to the head this time. See, while you were lying there picking the cinders from whatever was left of your facial hair, I was busy contemplating my next move.
I had made the decision previously that fighting endless battle after endless battle was getting me nowhere. So I set the deal in motion with Don Dinero to get me the Catholic connection I needed to really take the actions that have long evaded me.
This world is bereft of the glory that the church had one forced upon it. I couldn’t let this lack of influence reach the confines of the rest of the universe so I did what had to be done to put the lord back in the minds of the uncommitted, the slovenly, and the weak.
Richard: You are even more warped than I had expected. We were fighting to rid the universe of the evils that persisted for the greater good. I will not let your recent behavior compromise it. I will do what I can to stop this even at the cost of my career.
Zealot: Interesting. I was getting quite bored from all the bedrest and brooding. Your retirement will be a great opportunity to show what the inquisition has in store for this universe. It’s almost as if…God willed it. See you at Stellarvision.
Zealot leaves Richard who looks on as the scene fades.
