Seeking refuge from the relentless hunt, we evade the gathering forces of mankind and their guiding masters...the Serpents of Old...the Watchers of humanity. Knowledge and advancements fashioned for humanity's betterment now turned foul by lord and servant alike, subjugating all to the ever-present examination of the surveilling State. Mankind's self-subjugation rendering themselves as slaves to the unseen few, who only allow freedoms to peoples paying homage to their institutions of cunning tyrannies. Subtle guidance by the ancient scales now coil tightly about their corrupted human tools to deliver to them the World in arrogant defiance of Creation. It is in this confrontation, I vision the origins of the Old Serpents...in our first civilization, seeing their Lights twisted and fouled by selfish wants and the corruptible doings of their divinities. Their ancient bane...the Horsemen, I see rise, then as now, who through deeds self-driven and compelled leave in their wake punishing destructions as they seek to halt corruptions both mortal and afar. I sense I play a part in the approaching Apocalypse, through my aid to these Horsemen of Prophecy and something more. As I stand at the precipice to the end of the Fourth World-Age of humanity looking out at the coming tempest, I, Nikki, now do as our ancients did in tablets of clay and stone, chronicling humanity's undiscovered past in these steel bound epics to share with you before the sounding of the trumpets.
