That's just the first entry. Hit the ---> at the bottom to keep reading.

Yes, the "S." at the bottom is the way Shin ends his entries. It was the same for the Last Word quest entries.

This part from the first entry of the lore book sets the overall purpose of the book:
The trust we share is built on unstable ground. Our connection born of your knowledge of a legend that paints me in a light you have no way of fully understanding, and my observations of your many valiant deeds coloring you in a light few can ignore, be they friend or foe.

It is time, now, we prove our trust is not misplaced. It is time to test your resolve and see if you truly have the strength to balance the gray between absolutes.

Are you ready?

Here's part of second entry that shows the direction it's heading.
Did the fact I began as a victim color your perception of me? Is my path—my cause—more righteous because I was owed justice and vengeance?

For the longest time I thought so. But then—and here is where the truth of it all begins to gain focus—

What if the villain of the story believed so? What if the villain tore apart my life, and countless others', as a terrible means to an end? What if I was lost, and he offered guidance by gifting me vengeance?

What if I told you…

He was right to do so.

—S.

So if I am understanding this correctly

Shin is also a Dredgen and isn't about 100% light all the time but understands that darkness has its place and is only hunting the people who go too far towards the darkness

Is he saying at the end that the true heroes of the upcoming fight will have to be able to balance light and dark?

^Spoilers...but yes. I thought that was a pretty big twist. Reminded me of Memento.

This explain more clearly.
But I still dont understand Shin... so he created copy of Thorn, created Shadow of Yor, Inviting guardian interested in the power of darkness and killed them after they embraced the darkness.... @______@

Is he crazy?

Maybe Shin is the corrupt one. Time to hunt Shin
