|“||What is your purpose here, Arisen? If you sought to live you had naught but run and hide yourself away. But then, tell me, child of man... what does it mean to live in truth? To wage war against the passing days? To pray to the unseen for a few breaths more? To raise grand cities from stone, and spawn new life in turn? Mankind has done this, yes, and more. But is the tapestry you weave truly of your own design? Their kind is easy to fathom, they go on living from simple fear of death. But not mankind. Some welcome the end with arms outstretched, while others come to face death incarnate, arms in hand. I ask again... what is your purpose here Arisen?"||„|
Grigori, also known simply as The Dragon, is a powerful entity sent by The Seneschal to test the different Arisen of different worlds in search of one, true Arisen whose will is great enough to make it through his or her journey and challenge the dragon. The Dragon's Dogma, the dogma it follows, is that of the Seneschal's: the dragon's sole purpose is to find the one who can slay it, so that the Seneschal has a worthy successor whose will is capable of sustaining the Eternal Cycle that the whole of known existence requires in order to continue spinning onward.
