Let it be known that this is a confession, although I regret nothing.
I followed Xalthar's footsteps for years, and it brought me no closer to my goal. There is only so much a man can take before he breaks, and I did. Here - in this cave.
I longed for power but did not find it. I lusted for knowledge but did not gain it. But here, I found something else. Something I was able to attain. Worth.
Sobek came to me in my dreams. A demon - I thought. But he showed me the way to true happiness. True purpose. He shed his skin for me and proved he valued me. He promised me further rewards as well - and all I would have to do would be to gather followers.
And so I have. Soon we will be strong enough to wander into the north and follow Xalthar's footsteps once again. But this time it will not be out of loyalty.
