Well, it gives small hints about his regrets throughout the series, and it actually makes sense. First of all, notice how it mentions that he has more humanity than Dee. Also take note of how in the Sorcoress, I believe, it mentions that his wife called him an inhuman monster and asked if his son Guido is an individual. You can also notice his faithfullness to his wife by never remarrying. Then, notice his fear of his masters, and then in the Necromancer, first Black Hawk's repiromanding him for surviving and not living, followed by his anger at Quetzaloatl treating him like a faceless mass, and judging him not on what he did, but on what others did, and saving him as a favor to his master. Also notice his friendship with Billy, who is himself moving against his Elder. In the Warlock, you can notice his complex struggle, where he talks to Billy, and suddenly realizes that he sees San Fransisco as a city of Individuals, not a faceless mass, and also his anger at Dee just using the attack as a distration. The whole time, he is becoming fed up with the way that the elders look at things, and as Niten says, realizes that he is human first, immortal second. Finnaly, in the Enchantress, he decides to help the Elders, but he is still in it for himself, as allying with the Elders helps save himself most likely, but it also will help him save the city. He becomes fully dedicated to redeeming himself, and is thus grief-stricken when Billy, who had been by his side the whole time, is grievously wounded, and he nearly burns himself up saving Billy. This, Machiavelli's journey is a long one, and he does not just suddenly switch sides, you can tell that this has been his mind for a long time, and the series is just the turning point. I persionally loved his emotional journey. Ah, well. If that clears it up for you, good, if not, everyone is entitled to their opinions.
