As a survivor of the crusaders of old, he met a Modern one. He brought his hands together, resting them under his chin. He thought about the answer to the question, he would have to take time. "Well, to begin with, I came to Karakura after becoming what I am now. Brought here by the Vizard Corps to help me regroup after becoming a Vizard. I saw the Vanguard and Yayjuu elements. Walked by them frequently, all of us walking to a Crusader or belief different yet somehow the same."
He thought about Vanguard, the beginning was needed at first. "Genpaku Arishima, he founded the Vanguard. I'd seen him once or twice, but nothing important. After he was when Azure's tenure as the leader began. We all had the same goal and purpose, but I think...I misunderstood something."
He said thinking about it, he'd not pose as a question. But as a fact that could be addressed now. "I thought that the Vanguard, Yayjuu, and Vizard Corps served the same purpose. I was mistaken on two parts in my belief, I think Azure saw it as well. But I could be mistaken have never spoken to the man myself."
He paused releasing air as he looked upwards at the clouds. "Home, the Vizard Corps, and Yayjuu provided a home safety. For those of us born with evil or other beings inside of us. We are treated with a repulsion that few people understand, in those days. Despite prior Vizard's existence, we were considered loose canons. Those places provided safety and trust that you'd get through the hard moments."
He said considering it, he was cast out of the Gotei entirely. "The Gotei had a no Vizard tolerance program, and ones who did return had to swear not to use the power. But that is like pulling the pin on a grenade and expecting nothing to happen. You have two roads to go, but if you ignore it and let it sit there. It will rot you away from the inside, you must not ignore it. Ignorance was the Gotei's sin at that time. "
He said commenting on the true nature of having a Hollow inside of you. It was like having a Demon or some other piece of you living inside. "Rejecting who you are is fatal, I don't mean as Azure but as who you are now. The past is important, the Vanguard and your history as him and as you."
He considered it, the oath they swore in the Vanguard. He'd heard it, this caused him to break into a smile. "I swear to protect the Earth, was the oath they took. Those people who served the Earth before anything else. Devoted to combating Mana and Shadow Fall, the insidious darkness. K-World and Monsuta not to be left out of the occasion either..But I think we were mistaken."
He said thinking about the occasions that happened the multiple battles he'd survived over the years. "When I cross swords with a person, I get to forge a connection. I feel like with Mana and Shadow Fall, that effort wasn't made until the Queen of Vastime. But to answer your question. For all the Lux Orior's success, it is a failure in a sense. As they are no longer fit to protect this world entirely, Radioactive remains as does Shadin. But they've both stepped away from the frontlines. They no longer fight the wars and battles they did previously."
He said leaning forward, he could answer the question with a single response. "The Vanguard and the history Azure Iramasha created, he was not alone on any battlefield he walked upon. He fought wars of words and blades, both in the Iramasha realm and here on earth. It was a different world, today is both better and worse."
He said thinking about Saisei having to fight bothered him.
But he couldn't shield him from the past nor the future.
