Lore
"Nah. Dark Age version was better." "You and I remember the Dark Age differently." "I'll take a hard projectile over energy any day. No better way to make sure the target is dead." "Energy is for silencing barriers. Fists are all I need to administer blunt-force trauma." "I forget you used to be a Warlord." "What do you mean 'used to?'" "I thought you'd thrown in with Saladin and Felwinter." "I did. But I never stopped being me." "Then why—" "'Warlord' is too many syllables." "Gambit needs more candidates like you. Should stop by sometime. Whatever you want to call yourself." "Thank you. You're a liar and a cheat. Stay out of my Crucible."
