Drug Addiction

"We are the best Magicians we know. Silver can literally fly to the moon. But Menolly's dying of cancer, and we can't cure her. You know, Bender's trying to stay off the ledge every day. His meds have stopped working."
"And you?"
"Eight years ago, I was a drug addict, and I left my son in a hot car. And he was eight months old. My life was destroyed."
―Richard and Kady Orloff-Diaz[src]

Search for Gods

"Now, I have done all the research there is, and one day, I realized I was looking at it wrong. We don't have the energy, but it's not that we need to generate it, because somebody already has it. We just need them, and they can give us inexhaustible, unimaginable power."
"That's no one."
"That's the Source. That's the place it all comes from, how people used to get shit done when they needed a fucking miracle. The divine."
"You're trying to summon a god."
―Richard, Kady Orloff-Diaz, and Julia Wicker[src]

Searching the Afterlife

"I'm trying to find my son. I don't know where he is, if he's still here. And they won't tell me a damned thing."
"Why not?"
"I'm flagged as culpable in his death. There are rules. And friends to help me break them."
―Richard and Julia Wicker[src]


"Wait, why are you doing all of this Richard? I know you. This is a project."
