Current M!A: None

Status: No longer wearing blue
contact lenses, so his eyes are reddish brown in appearance and he's wearing red glasses. No mask, cape, or boa anymore. He is also conflicted about his true identity.

After succeeding in his quest to discover the Azran Legacies, Jean Descole has settled in London, determined to start anew, letting go of his gaudy disguise for good. There have been, and still are several struggles along the way, and events from his past coming back to haunt him, though he is trying his best to become the good-hearted person he feels he was meant to be.

"I’m not taking this, not from you. I’ve told you all I could, but you’re too damn stubborn to even consider a thing I’ve said."

"You should look in the mirror and tell yourself that, considering you’ve blocked out every single thing I’ve said just like you always do. Lily and Baruch are my grandchildren and I want what’s best for them. Apparently that isn’t you."

"How could you mean something like that?! I want nothing but the best for them!:

"You’re not obligated to love me, Brenda. I hurt you…badly…and I’d understand if you have come to the conclusion that you do not want me. Admittedly you don’t deserve me. I’ve…ruined things."

"…"

[She… was speechless. Not in amazement. Nor in fear. Not even in…

"…Brenda." That was also true. All of this had taken a profound physical and mental toll on the man, and while he didn’t want pity, any form of recognition of his situation would help to ease the pain of it all…

"…We’ve both been hurting…"

"Neither to I…However, it’s no simple task…"

"I don’t care if it’s not simple, I just want out of this!"

[She said, shaking her head.]

"I’ve had enough. I just want this to end…  Even if it’s hard to truly forgive, I’ll do it. It might take years, but I just can’t bear to live like this."

"…I’ll do whatever it takes to get through this "

"Why are you doing this?!"

"Because someone needs to get it through your thick skull that you neglected your children and that’s why neither of them are happy with you right now!"

"I should have been there…I shouldn’t have hidden like…like some disgusting coward…I didn’t want any of this to happen. I didn’t want to be hated by my own children…"

"They…"

[They don’t hate you.]

"The children probably can’t understand all this. Perhaps,…

"Yes, but what if that’s not enough?"

"That’s one option, but how long could that last? A more permanent solution would be to…forgive the past, I suppose."

"Forgive the past…"

[Yes, that seemed to be the better— no: the only option. the only way they’d be able to just stop being in pain over this matter that just took them around and around, like some broken carrousel.]

"…Yes. I want to forgive the past. I just don’t want this anymore."

"Don’t you /dare/ insult my wife! She’s been nothing less than a stellar mother to them both!"
