Even from the uppermost spire of his temple he was still unable to breach the surface of the scar. The three spheres orbited slowly beneath him as they always had since the temple had come into existence. His eyes followed the one comprised of emerald, and he thought of the seemingly infinite names that lined its inner walls. His heart pulled, knowing that his true parents’ names were also on that wall. He’d been lucky: he and his sister had been pulled to this world to get a new start. What was death like for everyone else that had perished that day in DaeLuin? Now that he’d been awakened, he was shamed to say that there were times he wished he could go back to being dormant.

His hands moved up and ran down his face, pressing briefly at his eyes as he willed those memories away. So many centuries had been poured into his mind, so much knowledge, more life experience than he’d ever had here in Revaliir. There was no way to go back to how he’d been before, and that’s what stung the most.

He breathed out shakily and rolled his shoulders, eyes opening to look at the crystal scarred ground below. In the distance he could just make out the natives of the valley. They’d done well at keeping a respectful distance from his temple, and likewise he’d left their encampments alone. It was so quiet here, a different quiet than Suisho no Kyuden with it’s constant blizzards and laughter. Why had his soul pulled to this place? This isolated place?

If he closed his eyes and cleared his mind he could still hear some of that laughter. Though really it was only because the dreams of those lying warm in their beds were calling out to him. Why had The Voice chosen this? Was he no longer worthy of holding Strength? Or were Dreams a more pressing matter nowadays? And why him? The Voice was still a riddle, one he never hoped to solve, one he doubted even Drae could puzzle out.

The blissful laughter grew darker and he quickly opened his eyes before he could see the oncoming nightmares. Mortals were so fickle, even in sleep. The real reason he was up here was even more complex than something so simple as brooding. His wife and children were in the temple, this was also their home, but he felt like a stranger in their lives.

Hundreds of years in his former life of not being able to have children, and now waking up to them? The mixed memories of two lives lived was overwhelming. And his wife…? Could he even still be with her? Was it fair to her?

His jaw locked and the white tattoos on his tanned skin glowed brighter as he stood from his perch and stepped off. His legs bent in a gentle crouch as he landed on the ground so far below. To him it was like stepping off of the first step of a staircase; to a mortal their legs would have been all but liquified.

The mirrors were fine in their ring around the temple, but he walked over to one anyways, hands resting on its sides gently as he made an adjustment that wasn’t needed. It was time to move again, he felt like he was leaving home more than he was staying there. While he’d never encourage one of his followers to run from their problems, he couldn’t help that he needed a break from his sometimes. And hated even more that his family in any way could be considered a problem. No, they weren’t the problem, he was.

Alignment: TG
Race: Lycan
Gender: Female
Class: Starsinger
Silver: 168
She had touched a stone of larimar, and Ynnarah had found herself transported to yet another place.  She had been wandering so long, searching for a thing that she could not name, and Ynnarah was beginning to wonder if she would ever find a place to rest for longer than a few days.  She had seen the stones and the spheres and the grand structure beyond, but she had been drawn to the stones first.  She had touched the blue one, found herself on a ship that was going down fast.  It was chaos.  But Ynnarah had a clear head in chaos, moreso than any other time.  There were some lifeboats, and people were loading them.  But it wasn't enough.  She had started making an example by pulling pieces of the ship apart with her magic, creating makeshift rafts for people.  Others joined in, and it was a race against time.  The ship was going down, the captain had already abandoned ship as pointed out by a crewman.  So it was highly unlikely they could save the ship.

But with help from a few others, they were able to calm the chaos, and get enough rafts made.  Everyone was saved, and Ynnarah could see another ship drawing near.  She had been sending up flares of mage-fire, hoping to attract attention.  As she glanced around, the whole scene started to fade, and she felt a tinge of dream-magic.  It wasn't something she had a whole lot of experience with, but enough to know when it had been used on her.  Within a few heartbeats, she was back among the stones, but closer to the grand temple. 

But she was so fascinated by the whole scene that she missed the other person.  Eyes to the sky, she collided with another person.  "Ack, sorry!  I was too interested in looking around to notice I wasn't alone," she said, a blush rising to her cheeks.  It was a flaw she had never been able to tame, and didn't really care to.  "I'm Ynnarah," she added, offering her hand in a friendly gesture.  It was always good to make more friends.

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
