But you dream Crateros... Your simplicity long ended, when you took Persian mistresses and children, and you thickened your holdings with plunder and jewels... Because you have fallen in love with all the things in life that destroy men... do you not see... and you, as well as I, know, that as the year decline and the memories stale and all your great victories fade it will always be remembered, you left your king in Asia
This isn't how I wanted to become King.
No one blames you.
They blame me already! Behind my back, in secret!
Slander is not power.
Shame is? Who killed my father? Tell me... tell me, or shall I put you on trial for his murder?
He had help! Did you help him?
The generals question your obsession with Darius... they say it was never meant for you to be King of Asia.
Naturally... they want only to return to their homes, rich with gold, but I've seen the future Hephaistion! I've seen it now a thousand times, on a thousand faces! These people want... need change.
