I have deceived, manipulated and betrayed everyone. I cannot lie. The game was grim but it was also fun. The intense loathing Brody developed for Grace was particularly satisfying, and before you ask, yes, I am a supremely vile creature. Brody lost his mother because of me. I destroyed his father and then blackmailed a woman with little or no maternal instinct into raising him. Brody is a man damaged by me. His character is my sin and Rising is my confession. It wasn’t power that corrupted me, it was boredom.
