Well, well, well. It seems the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. The truth about stealing Lucis' Crystal has finally been revealed for all to see. And what a revelation it is.

I must admit, I never expected our little plan to garner such attention and scrutiny from both friend and foe alike. But then again, when you're playing with forces as ancient and powerful as those tied to the Crystal, one should always expect the unexpected.

The heist itself was a masterpiece of deception and misdirection. From orchestrating the peace treaty between Niflheim and Lucis to infiltrating Insomnia under the guise of friendship and aid - every move was calculated with precision.

But now that our true intentions have come to light, I find myself in a rather precarious position. Noctis and his companions are no fools; they know I've been pulling their strings all along. And yet...there's still a part of me that can't help but admire their tenacity in seeking out the truth.

It's funny how things have come full circle since my days as Somnus' brother centuries ago. Back then, jealousy consumed me like wildfire, driving me down a dark path that ultimately led me here - standing on the precipice of destiny once more.

As much as it pains me to admit it...perhaps there's more at play here than just power or revenge. Maybe deep down inside, I long for something greater than immortality or domination over Eos.

Only time will tell what fate has in store for us all now that our secrets have been laid bare before gods and men alike.
