Working for The Powers was like any other job. Come in, punch the clock, do your best, get a raise, move up from guarding guys in stone cages to guys in metal cages until you get to the guys in fire cages. Basic security job. Behind a desk or in a cave, didn’t really change the job, day in and day out.

All anybody really wants to see is results from their hard work.
Besides, evil has a better dental plan.
