Timothy Drake. The italicization of my name suggests a tone of passive aggression, does it not? Do not presume to continue old feuds upon this field. Play with your fellow children, spy on your allies as you do. I am here to study and learn.
My fellow children?
I wasn’t a child when you sent your- what was she, sister? Random woman obsessed with you?- whatever, I wasn’t a child when you sent her to rape me for your heir, was I?
Because that makes you a sicker man than I’d given you credit for.
Previously, I refused to respond due to the profound degree of offense in the tone you took with me. Such instances you speak of do not ring familiar to my memory; I would not be lambasted for actions I have had little investment in nor concern for.
Such matters are barely of importance now, you should not distract yourself with them unless you wish to focus so much upon the past that you lose sight of your immediate future.
You would do well not to test me at this time, lest you desire a place among the very first offerings to the coming New Age…
wordofthedemon replied to your photo: You people obvious do not have anything better to…Or perhaps I simply find confidence in investing a degree of interest in potential assets to my purposes.
Oh? Investing now are we Ra’s?
As a man of business I am sure you understand the meaning behind my words. I trust you have no objection? There are certain… obstacles in our way, of which the removal would be most beneficial to the both of us. Of this, I am sure.
Yes, I understand and the allying of yours truly could come in handy for the time when I wish to strike. Though..of course, you’d forgive me, for asking what your goals are before I reveal my own.
‘The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.’
A Chinese proverb; a most astute one at that. We are plagued by the repeated impediment of those who wear their masks for all to see, and their permanent removal remains my primary objective. This first task must be achieved before my central goal, my ‘mountain’, may be addressed. I have learnt this through countless mishaps in these past years; occurrences I now tire of greatly, a sentiment I am sure you share.
You should know of this central aim of mine, that which lies beyond the immediate problem of the vigilantes. I seek the betterment of this planet’s civilization. For this, I believe a New World Order is required. The societies of these petty countries are corrupt, venomous in inclination and reprehensible in conduct. I regard you as an enlightened politician, one who may perhaps rekindle my faith in the ability of man to deny his faults and guide the world to an existence that respects the fruits of knowledge, judgement and foresight.
I could aid you in becoming such a figure, should it align with your own sentiments.
My only sin is to act upon the concern I have for this world, my refusal to watch it slip into the abyss, and be lost to the flames of decadence and greed…
Indeed. It has been some time since we last met, Doctor.
And how may I help you this time Ra’s? Have another plan cooking in that noggin of yours?
And if I did, would you be interested in yet another experiment upon the dregs of humanity?
Oh yes of course. I am always up for causing some toxic mayhem.
Are you yet absolutely adept at concocting toxins able to affect even those perhaps not entirely human? My current plans involve the… subjugation of some particularly tenacious individuals. Individuals who would otherwise elude the extent of my reach, as much as it pains me to say…
