The Chains that Bind

The Chains that Bind

Do you know what it’s like to be bound to someone. 

To be beholden to their every whim against your will 

Because We do, a witch in the early nineteen hundreds managed to summon us and bind us to her. 

For ten years we stole the souls she wanted to torture.  The thing is We suffered along with them.   

We endured pain that even a fallen angel wasn’t meant to. 

Ultimately that bitch got too cocky for her own good, and she left our metaphysical cage unlocked. 

What happened that night was the sweetest justice, as we broke that blood bond, and cast off those burning chains. 

And now another witch attempts to bind Us again only she’s using the memories of OSW’s long departed and the tortured souls of Our past to do so. 

She thinks Our fate is assured, that she will endure, that she has prepared those same chains again to bind Us, to make Us subservient, and bring Us to heel. 

Here is the truth though, We have been feeling the weight of shackles slowly, ever so imperceptibility being added to Our unearthly form. 

We will not be confined again, We will not be tortured again, We will not face that waking nightmare ever again. 

You can bring Our past to bear Time Witch, you can bring Our sins to light, and you can bring the tortured souls of OSW’s past along with you but We will not flinch. 

Chronoa, our Ring of Dreams is before Us and We are not walking away without Our dreams fulfilled. 

Our dream of letting the souls of Night City finally rest in peace. 

Our dream of silencing every screaming soul of OSW’s past that you draw back from the ethereal plane when you use that compendium of knowledge you possess to vanquish those who would be your superior. 

Because, even a fallen angel can be an avenging one and when We’ve put to rest the souls that you continue to disturb without a care or shred of empathy.  

Oh, Harbinger of Fate, then your Nightmare will truly begin. 

For, as you know everything about Our past, We have glimpsed yours as well. Every life you’ve lived, every horror you’ve met your end at, We know! 

We can play at this game too, Time Witch. We can meet the fire that you’ve dredged up from our past with an inferno of memories from yours. 

This is not Us meeting you on equal footing Chronoa, this is Us announcing your current life’s end at the hands of your past. 

BECAUSE WE WILL NOT BE CONFINED AGAIN! 

WE WILL NOT SUBMIT TO ANOTHER WITH DESIGNS ON USING US TO PUNISH OURSELF AND OTHERS! 

We may be a demon, Chronoa but rest assured you’re the one who will be cast out. 

You’re the one whose soul will spend the next eon burning for your sins. 

Because We are THE IMPALER which means WE ARE LEGION, FOR WE ARE MANY, AND YOU’RE ALONE AGAINST US!
