I have seen it all. The flash of light in an endless sea of black. Elements swirl and form, moved by forces unseen. Spherical Giants erupt across the infinite plain. Objects so powerful light cannot escape it's hunger. In the far corners of the universe I have seen a galaxy, and in this galaxy on a piece of rock no more interesting than any other, I felt a destiny call to me. Here I saw the primordial soup take place on a primitive Earth. Ice Ages form, melt, then form again. Life flourish then die in a blink an eye, unnoticed by the universe surrounding it. I have seen man come to life. Primates who crawled but now stand, still clueless to their destiny. I have shaped, altered, watched, and waited as the endless seasons have passed. I was here at the beginning, here till the end. 
Watching mankind's climb through history has been tumultuous. Warlords conquered, cities destroyed, plagues ravishing the lands and it's people; but the humans continue on, ever persistent, never quitting. They have courage, but courage will not save them from themselves. 
In all the time that I have witnessed; all the destruction, chaos, and war. I have never been more worried for the humans as I have now. This age is a clueless age. Technology is both a blessing and a curse and I feel the humans time is at an end. The Universe has moved it's hand, all I can do is push the right people in the direction that's needed and hope that the looming threat does not come to bear as soon as I fear. I am The Watcher. From the beginning to the end, I am and always will be.
