With no one to stand against them, Dee and the others like him would loose the Dark Elders into the world again. It would be chaos; civilization would fall. (41.7)
Uh, guys? This sounds just like what Dee said to Josh at the fountain. So according to Dee, if the Dark Elders don't take back power, the world will descend into anarchy and chaos. But according to Perenelle, chaos will reign if the Dark Elders do take back control. So which is it? Frankly, neither option sounds all that awesome.
