9th and Last circle - treachery [traitors] Dante: I fell, not into the fire, but into the vast, frozen wasteland. The very centre of hell, furthest place in all of creation, from the divine light of God. Treachery, the ninth circle of the inferno. I walked through the darkness, numb with bitter cold. All about me were forsaken, frozen souls of deceivers and traitors. (OPEN CURTAINS) Lady in the ice: who are you to walk the paths of hell so warmly, o living man? Dante: damned soul, where is Lucifer? Tell me, before I too freeze in this miserable hell.

Lady in the ice: wipe the icy tears from my eyes, and I shall tell you. [he wipes the tears]the lord of hell dwells at the centre of this frozen lake. Past the storms of ptolomea, deep in the centre pit Judecca, there his icy halls are well protected, and none but the mightiest may cleave a path. But can you believe me? Can you believe a traitor? (CLOSED CURTAINS) Dante: long did I wander the dim and icy paths of hell. Past the frozen giants of legend nimrod, ephialtes and antaeus. I was battered by a frigid wind that was like the beating of lucifers black wings. Finally, after a seeming eternity, I came to a passage blocked by the frozen links of a mighty chain. Lucifer thinks he can block my way with this? He thinks he can stay my vengeance? (OPEN CURTAINS) (RED LIGHT) and (SE: Horror) Lucifer: welcome, great dante. Welcome to your final resting place, the circle of traitors. Dante: Lucifer, I have come to escaope this hell so that I may be reunited with my beloved, but not before I rid the world with your corruption. Lucifer: you will never see Beatrice again. The path to purgatory lies through me. You are the warrior of a weak and dying God, a God who is the true evil. His power wanes over the world. Dante: silence. Your lies have no power over me, devil. I will rend the very soul from your frozen body. Lucifer: indignant fool. Come let me devour your soul as I devoured judas Iscariot. You will remain in this pit until creations last breath, do you hear? Dante: never! You are not invincible here. You are just another demon, and, like any fallen, you can be destroyed. Dante stab Lucifer in the shoulders. Lucifer: you cannot destroy me! [bleeds] what you have done to me? Dante: I have slain you, great beast. Victory is mine. {Something happened to Lucifer} whats this? NO. Lucifer: thank you, dante. I am very impressed. Many have tried, but all have failed me. Ulysses, Alexander, atilla, lancelot truly, you are the greatest of all my minions. Dante: Minion? I do not serve you. speak without your forked tongue, serpent! Lucifer: do you not? You freed me from my eternal torment. Dante: I came only for Beatrice. Lucifer: Beatrice? She was only bait. It was you I wanted all along. Dont you see? I was bound by God in this frozen pit, only my shadow self allowed to roam free. It took a mortal to release me- you, dante. Dante: no, it isnt true! I defeated you before. Show me the path from hell, or I will end your miserable existence. Lucifer: destroy an angel of God? You arrogant gnat. Such vanity, such pride. I could have slain you the moment you fell into the hell. Fight scene Lucifer: you worship God, but it was He who created evil. It was he who created me. If you knew the true nature of God, dante, you too would rebel. Dante: No!

Lucifer: you are nothing to me. A talking animal. He made you in his image and I was to bow down to you.. [continues fighting] I grow weary of this game. Finally, I will reclaim my proper place in heaven. Behold, dante. Beyond the inferno lies purgatory, where awaits your precious Beatrice. But instead of you I shall escape from this pit. All the souls in purgatory shall suffer and burn. And beyond purgatory, paradise itself. I will plunge the cosmos into chaos, and it is all your doing, dante. Because of you, God will finally see me rule His creation. Dante: No, I cannot be the cause of this. Lucifer: there is nothing you can do to stop me, mortal. No one can stop me. Dante: One can. [dante prayed] almighty God, forgive me for all of my wicked sins. I forsake my escape. I give up even Beatrice. I belong here, in hell, and accept my just damnation. Lucifer: what are you doing? A repentant soul in judecca? Stop! Do not utter a word! Dante:[ while holding a lighted cross] but grant me the power to keep your enemy here with me. [the cross in his chest also light up] stop. I command you. Lucifer: NO!!! Lucifer once again froze. (Normal Light) Dante sees the way to purgatory. Dante: purgatory. (CLOSED CURTAINS) Dante escapes from hell. And arrive at the purgatory. Dante: Beatrice. I will come to you yet. Beatrice soul: my love, I have forgiven you. God will forgive you. Now forgive yourself. Dante removed the cross in his chest. Dante: I fought across Earth and hell to find my beloved Beatrice. We were together neither, in hell nor in paradise, neither damned nor saved. I did not die, I did not live.
