Video 1 ♔ Nothing in his Life Became Him Like the Leaving it

 [Private to self]

Well, of course it wasn't that easy. And there was the matter of placing myself on that world. So like my own. [He lets out a laugh.] Apart from that 'Below' business. 

But not my world. I wasn't present at all. [He smiles.] What a poorer world for it! [Contemplatively:] A terrible shame what became of the lady. She was well loved in this world. Still, she had two sons here, so that was something to be grateful for.

Now we have 'the Barge'. I remember what Elizabeth said. That I should always find a challenge. Keep my mind active and sharp. It seems that in killing me, she guaranteed it! [He looks thoughtful again.] Would that she know about it. 

[Public]

When I was growing up, my pastor was filled with the grim vitriol of the passioned believer, slamming his bible against the pulpit, telling us all that we were destined to end up in the fiery pits of hell to be burned and scorned for all eternity. We were all sinners and we all needed repent them. 

Of course, it was something of a double edged sword. When your religion exhorts you to be a good boy while simultaneously telling you that any attempts on your part to do so was ultimately futile because God had decided your fate long before you were born, you tended to form a kind of apathy about the whole thing, whether you believed or not.

I confess, while I lay bleeding to death in my wife's embrace, my being sent to hell... or 'purgatory' for you lightweights [He smiles a little], didn't occur to me in the slightest. I'm sure it occurred to others, of course, but politics will do that.

[There's a slight twinkle in his eye.] ...Do you think the Admiral is a Labour man?

I will admit, I don't remember any of my teachings to feature such a... 'high tech' purgatory, with dining halls and 'wardens'. 

As I discovered, [he shoots the camera a disarming smile] there doesn't seem to be much freedom to escape. So I'm a little unclear on the point of wardens? To keep us from bashing each other's heads in? Surely, not a concern to our Admiral, given his skills. 

You can come and go as you please, so perhaps you're solely here to hammer home just how trapped inmates are. Of course, no doubt there's a certain... satisfaction in being above others, particularly others that you can point to be less... moral than you are, but otherwise, I don't see the appeal.

Of course, if anyone should care to enlighten me, I'd be obliged.

To talk to you. To challenge you.

And to clean up the messes that inmates make.

If I was a cat, when I was an inmate, I probably would have been less inclined to kill.

No one is really clear what the Warden can do, or why he's here. About all I know is he's a terrible pilot, so if he is God, at least we know he's consistent. Anyway, most Wardens are here for a magic prize at the end of the road; they pick their own incentive. It's a pretty effective way to keep people coming back.

The Admiral finds the most desperate people he can. Or the most naively disillusioned. It's easy to manipulate people who identify as 'heroes'; they can't turn down a challenge.

[Daneca is starting to recognize a definite pattern with the inmates. Especially when they first arrive.]

Wardens and inmates aren't all that different, you know. I can see why you might think we get some kind of smug satisfaction out of our positions, but we're here because we want to help not because we want to stroke our own egos.

Actually, there isn't a whole lot I can do to help people in my world. Not in the same way I can here.

[She's pretty sure Cassel wouldn't have ended up here if that was the case. Not that he's her responsibility, but he might have told her things sooner, more easily. Either way, it wouldn't have turned out the way it did.]

I'm not getting treasure out of this either. I'm getting something that I want, sure, but I'm still here to help people more than I'm here for myself.
