"Ivor Scivien." Lord Kadashan watched the man struggle, a smile playing on his lips. "You've caused us so much trouble." Blindfolded and bound in a straightjacket, there was no way our prisoner could escape. Armed guards were stationed both inside and outside the bright room. "I will escape, Kadashan. I will break free of these useless chains, and I will make you understand the true meaning of fear." The prisoner struggled harder, seething with anger. "No prison can hold me. No man will enslave me." "Says the man in a straightjacket," Kadashan muttered to me. "As if he's going to make it out of this prison alive." I continued to study the screen.

He was blindfolded. How did he know I was here? "What is this game you play, Scivien?" I questioned. The evil genius laughed. "Dagger or sword?" He asked again. "Choose one, or another."

My agenda against the royal family is simple. I seek their total annihilation. I seek the destruction of the royal houses and its members." A collective gasp rose from the room. Not because of the casual way he spoke about his plan. Neither was it because if the treacherous words spoken against the royal families. Ivor Scivien had seem to forgotten that, he too, was a member of the royal families he spoke against with hatred. "Last question, Your Highness?" Ivor sneered.
