The Shadow Wiki

Quote1.png It was I. I who divined your scheme! The riddle of the Blue Sphinx! It was I who placed the charges beneath the Sphinx, ready to blast it, the night before your henchmen moved! Your turn has come, Strafford Malden. I have allowed you to declare your guilt. Confessed a murderer, you are doomed... Quote2.png
