Every day’s your last day when you’re something less than human, so that’s how I roll out of bed each and every morning…like I’m not entitled to the day because in truth? I’m really not. The day belongs to the people, I’m just here to make sure they get to see it.

See, I thought I was human until I was about ten years old. That’s when I manifested my power for the first time…I was playing Go Fish with my friends and I realized that I knew the location of each and every single card. It was easy…like breathing. I could hear the scrape of every finished piece of card stock, and when my friends asked for cards I could actually see in my head where they were, where they might be. It kinda felt like being God, but I was ten so I didn’t know at the time. I was just scared, knowing things I wasn’t supposed to.

It happened more and more, and it got easier to handle every time…less scary. And that just scared me more, ‘cause it wasn’t normal. When my folks told me the truth, realized what I was and explained it all to me, everything changed. Admittedly, it’s one of the reasons I became a heavy metal musician in particular: anger issues have always been my thing.

I mean, I’m not a man, I’m not human…I’m a bonebag for a figment. All children of Pandora are. When you’re sixteen, male, and as big a horse’s ass as I know I can be, just how the hell do you deal with that? Simple: you grab a guitar and play as loud, as fast, and as hard as you fucking can.

I’m thirty two years old now, and I’ve been through the wringer. I’ve fought, I’ve killed, I’ve felt and I’ve embraced my power, my nature. I don’t buy the line that we’re more than human, that avatars are some transcendent creatures that understand everything.

People are more than we are. The humans we serve are as good as it gets, because all they can do is get better. Despite the evil, despite the darkness, they will evolve in ways we never can. And that’s why I pledged…I’m okay with being second best. I’m all right with dying for a greater good. You are the greater good.

And I don’t have a death wish, so I just treat every day like my last. I have a shelf life, I’m okay with it, and I just wanna suck the marrow out of every bone the gods toss me while I still got teeth enough to crunch those suckers open.
