First, Forsaken and All-powerful

Forces were set in motion. Events were unfolding according to the plan. Soon, not only the South but all of Creation would be under his sway and no one would be able to stop him. All the remaining Solar Shards would be his for the taking, and his army would then become invincible.

And, then, he would put an end to the Ebon Dragon's pitiful ploy. All of Creation would sink into the Underworld and Malfeas would be his for the taking.
