"Here Be Dragons"
A simple enough statement.
And one seen on older maps of the entire world.
"Here be Dragons," the maps would say.
This, you see, was their way of saying and area
was dangerous.  Dangerous and unexplored.

Part watcher, part protector, I am the Sign Maker.
 "HERE BE DRAGONS!" they say.
And, simply, I mean it.
 Here be dragons, indeed.
I travelle THROUGH.  Through the places no one You know
knows about and I place the signs.
I make signs to serve.  Serve and protect.

  The question you should ask is:
   Serve and protect who?
