Wizard: "That was the doing of the Grande Monster. He wants you dead for some reason. He even ordered me to eliminate you. However, I am far too busy to worry about his issues."
"Why don't we make a deal? I will let all of you live if you do something for me in return. The Evil Scientist is encroaching on my territory. Put an end to his plans, and you will have earned your lives. Go ahead and talk amongst yourselves. If you choose death, you might as well choose death as team."
