I apologise for having deceived you, dear friends, but it was a necessary slight. One cannot create a platform for the greater good without stepping on a few toes or kicking in a few skulls. However, I can assure you, Aleksandr as you knew him, the lesser, weaker Aleksandr is gone forever. No. Not yet.
Now, the world awaits me. A world that must be cleansed of those disgusting malcontents who would resist the great peace that my lord Koschei is going to bring upon us. I can only hope that I will never have to cross paths with any of you. The less that must die to destroy war forever, the better. I’ll always be here.
So long, my friends. It has been a pleasure to know you but now a higher calling beckons. I must away now to my destiny, as the right hand of God. Farewell.
If you don’t hear from me in the next two weeks, consider me dead.
