As Elsword listened to the problems in Bethma, he frowned.
He knew defeating the enemy didn't always solve the problems, but he never had to think deep on the matter.

There's no absolute justice as a correct answer to someone is the wrong answer for someone else, said Stella. But she said having your own justice is helpful when it's hard to make a decision. Something not necessarily absolute, but will act as a guide.
Let's defeat the evil that is threatening Bethma at Dragon Nest and decide what justice to live by.
