"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet .you and you may call me V."

V for Vendetta - V's introduction to Evey


Behold! Before you is a humble stage performer, cast, against his will, by the

whims of fate, to the roles of both victim and villain. The face you see now is

not just some meaningless costume. It is a remnant of the People's Voice, which

has since gone and disappeared. However, this past annoyance stands

courageously reborn and has sworn to conquer the evil and corrupt, who promote

greed and the violent suppression of free will. The only choice is vengeance; a

personal war held as a promise, but not in vain, for the importance and

self-evidence of this quest shall one day exonerate the watchful and the

righteous. But in truth, this thick soup of words has become too excessive. So,

let me simply finish by saying that it's my very good honor to meet you, and

you may call me V.
