His Dark Materials | Phillip Pullmanthe golden compass, subtle knife and amber spyglass
Corruption and envy and lust for power. Cruelty and coldness. A vicious probing curiousity. Pure, poisonous, toxic malice.

You have tortured and killed without regret or hesitation; you have betrayed and intrigued and gloried in your treachery. You are a cess-pit of moral filth.

"Well, there is now," she said aloud, and again, louder: "There is now!"
