People like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.
— I wasn`t born a demigod. I had human parents. They took one look and decided they did not want me. They threw me into the sea... like i was nothing. Somehow, i was found by the gods. They gave me the hook. They made me Maui. And back to the humans i went. I gave them islands, fire, coconuts. Anything they could ever want.
— You took the heart for them. You did everything for them so they`d love you.
— It was never enough.
