What am I reading here? Seems like Daimon Kiyota paid a special visit to Faust Capitol? Shit, this isn't good news at all. We'll need to look into this some more to figure out just what the hell we missed. I'll be in touch. Happy climbing!

All signs of the opened vault point right to Daimon Kiyota. How did we miss this? What we he looking for and more importantly - what did he find in that vault? I've mentioned in the past that he is unreliable and dangerous, it seems that now we may not know as to what extent this may be so. I need to do some research and will get back to you. In the meantime, continue your ascent of the tower.

Dialogue

Tower AI: Please ignore the voices in your mobile phone. There are no voices in your mobile phone. Forget this warning of the voices in your mobile phone.
Tower AI: This is only a test. In the event of a real emergency, something would follow this sentence.
Tower AI: We thank you for placing all trash in the proper receptacles. Have a dynamic day.

PA System (Faust)

Tower AI: Welcome to the Faust Capital branch of Orochi. Faust Capital: It's in the details.

CEO (Faust, Floor 19)

Floor 19      
After Exiting the Elevator      
CEO: Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name.
CEO: I know why you're here. You're looking for something. Aren't we all?
CEO: See the doors I have to show you. Come now. Indulge your curiosity.
The First Door      
CEO: We have here two doors. Behind one is eternal youth. Behind the other is eternal love. Experience life unending or passion unlimited? Which door do you choose?
Eternal Love      
CEO: A shame it ended so violently. Oh, I did not lie. The succubus truly loved you, with illimitable fervor. But her kind know no other way to express the unutterable.
Eternal Youth      
CEO: Forever young. At least in installments. That kind of immortality tastes like old pennies, but we take our eternities where we can get them.
The Second Door      
CEO: I don't think you know what you're looking for. But that is my specialty. I know the things people don't even know they want.
CEO: Before you, weary pilgrim, are two more doors. Behind one is power. Behind the other are riches. To rule your reality with either puissance or wealth? Which door do you choose?
Power      
CEO: I know. I know. Literalness is so droll. I could not help myself.
Wealth      
CEO: What? The wealth I offered is inexhaustible. You could spend your whole life stacking it. Some do.
The Third Door      
CEO: Guess my name? The Hebrews called me "distributor." They also called me "liar"...well... they actually called me "falsehood plasterer." But I remember it being prettier when they said it. The Greeks called me "not-light-loving," and it was definitely prettier when they said it.
CEO: Submitted for your consideration: two final doors. Behind one lies knowledge. Behind the other is musical talent. Do you feed the mind or the soul? Which door do you choose?
Music      
CEO: You have listened to more than one musician who signed on my dotted line.
Knowledge      
CEO: I could offer humanity all knowledge, to link all the disassociated bits. Actually, it already happened. They have seen the internet. Just look at what they've done with that.

After answering all three riddles:

CEO: Really, I'm just a facilitator. I join disparate bits of reality. I have a proposition for you. No, not a wager. There are still wise old men living who will tell you to never bet me your head.
Approaching the Centre Room      
CEO: This is the point: I'm unkindly portrayed. I always play fair. I give warning. I read every bit of fine print aloud. I told Johann what he was getting in to. I even warned him not to do it. What's now in the face of eternity? But they all go through with it anyway. Just like you will.
CEO: I apologize. I really do. I hate brutishness. I despise rudeness. And you have been such a wonderful guest. But...I owe my own favors. There are contracts that bind me. Samael says you are to go no further. I am more sophisticated than this, and you deserve better but... this will get brutish.
CEO: I am so sorry.
