"..I have lived a very long time. My master also lived many centuries, and his master before him.
"My master's master told me about the Hundred-Year Darkness... and the Great Hyperspace War.
He taught me how the agents of the dark side do their evil works. The dark siders act in complete secrecy, until the leaders of society have fallen to their evil seductions. Then they strike with great suddenness, bringing down civilizations it took aeons to build."
I am obviously quoting this in reference to the success so far of the Great Duendeng Itim.
