I don't know, yeah? I'm suspicious of everything. I'm always suspicious of everyone around me. Someone I met yesterday could be an Akuma today. Cause that's the type of thing we're up against. You should understand that, Allen. We are at an overwhelming disadvantage. We're different from you, yeah? Not having that convenient eye. Akuma are mixed in with the humans. The other Exorcists and I... we end up looking at all humans as the Earl's minions.
There wouldn't have been a bright future if I had died or I had been the only one to survive.
