The Veteran

"I'll follow him around the Horn, and around the great maelstrom, and around perdition's flames before I give him up."

The Idealogue

"But Faith, like a jackal, feeds among the tombs, and even from these dead doubts she gathers her most vital hope."

The Crusader

"'Tis the thing behind the mask I chiefly hate; the malignant thing that has plagued mankind since time began; the thing that maws and mutilates our race, not killing us outright but letting us live on, with half a heart and half a lung."

The Deposed Prince

"It's a mutual, joint-stock world, in all meridians. We cannibals must help these Christians."

The Hunter

"I am game for his crooked jaw, and for the jaws of Death too, Captain, if it fairly comes in the way of the business we follow; but I came here to hunt monsters, not my commander's vengeance"

The Instrument of Fate

"And I, you, and he; and we, ye, and they, are all bats; and I'm a crow, especially when I stand a'top of this pine tree here."
