„Sebastian is merely one of my chess pieces. It is not possible to move the chess pieces without me, the person behind it. If I won using a free moving piece, that would not be to my credit. The one who gives the order will always be the master. Without my command, he will not make a move. But the difference between Sebastian and chess pieces is that… He can singlehandedly take down all the other "knights”. Just like that."
„Doing that is against the rules!”
„That's right, If this was a game of international chess… Unfortunately, in reality there is no situation where one can win merely by following the rules. There will be knights that break the rules, and even chess pieces that betray him. In order to maintain the balance in this game, I too must break the rules in order to win, no? If we in England were to be less attentive, we would… be finished.”
„Humans cannot reject temptation. When they are plunged into the depths of depair likened to hell, they will hold on to anything that may help them escape from the situation they are in, even if it is merely a spider's thread… No matter what sort of humans they are.”
„Demons are those who uses various chances to poke fun of humans, before proceeding to leech whatever comes out of it as a mean of survival. Am I right?”
„I do not dismiss that claim.”
„Because you are a hound that is on a leash, it seems like you are slightly better than the other untamed wild hounds.”
„For a king to survive it's good for him to be able to skillfully manipulate the other pieces. Using both the knight and the queen. Beneath the throne the bodies of your pieces will pile up along with your sins. If the king is taken, it's game over. You must not lose.”
„I will not stop. I will not regret moves that have allowed me to advance. Therefore… This is an order. You shall never betray me. You shall never leave my side… No matter what!”
„Yes, my lord.”
„If it's your wish I follow you everywhere. Even if your throne crumbles, and your shiny crown turns to rust… Even if the bodies pile up endlessly, above the bottomless pile of corpses… Beside you as you lie softly down, I will be. Until I hear the words "checkmate”."
„Ah… What a mess. My clothes have become ruined.”
„It's cause you were playing around, you idiot.”
„I was only being faithful to your command, young master. "Just act like that”, you said. Besides… Your appearance is quite impressive. It looks nice and gruesome, not unlike a bug. It suits someone small and weak like yourself. I thought it would be nice to watch you looking that way for a little while."
„I'm waiting… For them to come and try to kill me here.”
„Why… Why do you have to go so far?”
„Moping around filled with sadness and sorrow… What will come of it? Even dead people can do that. However… I'll live and stand on my own two legs. If we are to die one day, wouldn't it be better to have no regrets? I'm not saying that getting revenge for predecessors is an admirable thing. This is all just a pastime of mine. It is a game that could be won by either… Those guys or I as the Earl of Phantomhive. Even though I was put in an abyss of despair, a place likened to hell… A chance as thin as a spider's thread was sent to me offering the choice to crawl out. I decided not to give up and reached for it. We humans have that strength. Though… Grasping it or not is up to the person.”
