The worlds, both in and out are dangerous places. The people of
Shire need protecting, they need to be kept an eye on. Not because
they are weak, but because they are special people that have too many trying
to hurt them. I am only one, but created a number of automatons,
mirrors to work under my control. They report back to me, work inside
so I can focus on the outside world. I live in the world, constantly
on guard, standing by the door to any room we are in. Even when we
are at home, I wait and I watch. I am trained in covert action, the
silent threat that no one will see. In each situation I keep watch,
I keep guard, nothing goes un-noted. Trained and always one step
away from action.
In this world I inhabit evil people lurk. I have seen them do
evil things, and will no longer sit back and do nothing. People now
say the Shire is safe, but I know the measure of man, what they are capable
of. There is an evilness in man's heart, the part that thrives off
the pain of others. I have seen it in action, know its depth, and
ugliness. In Idia there are places of evilness, places where dark
creatures inhabit, there sole purpose is the annihilation of those of the
Shire. They lurk, in waiting for opportunities to attack. It
is my job to watch them, to note their movements, to find patterns in their
madness. It is madness too, there is no reason in their motives.
All they require is the destruction of those around them. I am not
a fighter, rather I am a protector. Therefore I will not attack without
choice, but if it comes to a fight I will take them out. But there
are more areas, more people than I, alone can keep an eye on. So
I created the Sentries, what they see I see, what they hear I hear.
And through this method I keep the borderlands safe.
My name is Murray, I am a soldier, a man, a protective force.
I am always here, always with them, and no more damage will occur.
