"Most men have no purpose but to exist, Abraham; to pass quietly through history as minor characters upon a stage they cannot even see. To be the playthings of tyrants. But you… you were born to fight tyranny. It is your purpose, Abraham. To free men from the tyranny of vampires. It has always been your purpose, since you first sprang from your mother’s womb. And I have seen it emanating from our every pore since the night we first met. Shining from you as brightly as the sun. Do you think that it was some accident that brought us together? Do you think it was mere chance that the first vampire I sought to kill in more than a hundred years was the one who led me to you?
"I can see a man’s purpose, Abraham. It is my gifts. I can see it as clearly as I see you standing before me now. Your purpose is to fight tyranny…
"… and mine is to see that you win."
“And I like a mouse who has taken a cat for its tutor.”
