IGN: Professor Scholar, Lv99 Professor.
“That’s close to five times the weight of a human one”, I remember mumbling to myself while watching them dissolve in the acidic concoction in front of me. “Beauty really is in the eye of the Beholder. Too bad it’s such a pain to take them out without spoiling everything.”
Can you imagine? I’m not even into cooking that much! But if course it’d be fifteen hours… Oh, the things I do for you, Umbra…
It’s been quite a while without you now. I can still hear your whispers when I’m near these books. The sweet memories of how you were gentle to me, making sure I was always on the right path. The gentle, soft touch of your skin on my head. I could never keep my hair straight! Haha.
We did try a few times before. Albeit a tad more of… gruesome sightings. Can’t blame us, it was very experimental. It’s like gastronomy, right? Someone had to try if the vessels would work with just human flesh. They didn’t.
I savor this bittersweet memory with a heavy heart. We were so close to ending it all. To having you back to my side. To mentor me again. It was real lonely without you there, you know? The darkness was… empty. We both knew the consequences of what we did, but I don’t regret it. Sacrifices are to be made. And from hard times we foster beautiful futures.
We are bound. Bound forever. Bound to venture once again. To cater to the knowledge of the Arts! I won’t give up. No, I won’t. You were the only to ever understand my… passions. Together, we could do anything. It’s not fair that you were taken from me, imprisoned from this world. I will make it just.
I am coming for you.

Ah, yes. Where were we? Decayed nails… ¼ cup… Immortal hearts… 5 pounds…
EDIT: a lot of people told me they didn't quite get the story, so in this small "lore", Umbra was the mentor of this professor in the dark arts, and also the owner of the hand and the small face he wears as costumes. She messes with his mind, and making him prepare this concoction to try and ressurect her. They have tried this in the past in other ways and it didn't work out, so this is the description of his memory in one of these attempts... In the story, he's talking to himself while thinking about the preparation and also about memories past he had with Umbra. Thank you!!
