"The Maze is an old Native myth," Teddy told the Man in Black. "The Maze itself is the sum of a man’s life. The choices he makes. The dreams he hangs on to. At the center, there is a legendary man who had been killed over and over again countless times but always clawed his way back to life," Teddy said. "The man returned for a last time to vanquish all his oppressors in a tireless fury. Built a house and around that house he built a maze so complicated only he could navigate through it. I reckon he’s seen enough fighting."
