Ya know what I hate? I know... I know... Easy answer might be that I hate myself. Nah. That ain't it. Way I feel right now...after everything I did...everyone I hurt... I don't think enough of myself to hate. When I held that hammer...when it had ahold of me...I couldn't stop myself. And I still remember every ugly thing the Serpent's avatar -- Angrir -- whispered in my head. But now...more'n anything...I hate the idea of hurting my friends.

Valkyrie
You know...for many years I was used against my will...used for evil. But guilt can be a cruel master, too, if you let it. I'd never suggest that you forget the things you've done. But rather than letting your shame crush you, I'd suggest you work to set things right.
