Vixen (her eyes glitter): Something there is in the wide world abhors stasis. It undermines, in sly ways, those of us seeking perfection. A day came when the Alchymist surprised me in my bath where I reclined undisguised, wearing my naked self. He saw my fox-form, and the love of our glamour evaporated.
Dog-Head (sighs): The Alchymist is a proud man. He cannot bear to be shown that which he cannot know.
Vixen: His passion distilled into wrath and madness. He vowed to destroy me. For this purpose, the Alchymist abandoned experiment on senseless matter. He commenced experiment on the sentient. Fury deformed his mind, made him monstrous.
