Chapter 2.8 - Epilogue
In a dimly lit-room, one man kneels, facing the back of another man.
Cardinal: Patriarch Julius is dead, and the Zohar is as good as ours… yet certain obstacles have not been completely removed. What shall we do?
Sergius: Obstacles… You mean Dmitri Yuriev?
Sergius: Don’t worry about the Federation. They have no idea how to use that power.
Cardinal: And his vanguard… shall we let him go for the time being?
Sergius: The person Yuriev is using to collect the 'factors' of the people of Zohar? What was his name… Voyager? He’s of no concern.
Cardinal: He is not aware of our involvement…?
Sergius: …No. I’m certain that Voyager thinks the Julius incident was just another commission from Yuriev.
Cardinal: But inside the Federation, people are becoming more and more aware of the Zohar. If Voyager continues to act as Yuriev’s vanguard, it is possible he will discover our involvement…
Sergius: Even if he does, he’s no more than one stray dog. I don’t think it’s within his power to interfere with our actions. Additionally, even if Yuriev somehow collected enough factors, he wouldn’t know what to do with it. Controlling the Zohar is the god-given right of the people of Zohar… our pure-blooded race. That’s why Julius was in the way. Understand…?
Cardinal: Yes… I understand.
Sergius: Everything should be in order. At the Pilgrimage Council, the ignorant people of the Galaxy Federation will know the true greatness of our Immigrant Fleet. Until then, it’s up to us to protect the Zohar… you’re dismissed.
Cardinal: …Yes, sir.
