I am an elegant hermit who sank five ships with a flick of the wrist. I'm also a wizard. They may call me elegant because of my silky, gorgeous robes. I only accidentally sank those five ships, but people think me a monster anyway. I've hidden away to avoid their judgements. That all ends today! Even though I've been hiding for years, they still rake my name through the mud. I have been practicing my craft. Today, I will return to show them what their "monster" can do. I will raise their ships from the depths and bring back life!
