"Because this is not a place that one finds by accident. In times long past, we had sought this place and did not heed the warnings of our forebearers. I sought the power of the ones who went below, and this was my reward..." he held his left arm out and gestured to the wastes around them. "Though East's final destruction came not by my hand, but by the ones who came after me, failing to learn the lessons of old."


He advanced closer to her and stopped right in front of her, bending forward to come to her eye level like other before. "This is not a fate from which i can escape." he finally answered.

He took a very deliberate breath in through his nose and out through his mouth and looked towards the Monastery. "A place we had long searched for, but understood very little about. A place below it all. A place of decay, timeless and dead." he answered. "Such was always destined the fate of East and we fools who sought knowledge without wisdom. Some learned harder lessons than others..." he motioned to the right half of his body that was consumed by the energy.


"And those who heeded the lessons of history inherited our noble mantel." he glanced back to the statues of the Guardians.

"Much like the Great Phoenix, I too have been born again from the ashes of destruction, though still here to reap the seeds of my own undoing." he replied. "I think the better question is why are you here in this desolate place? Have you too come to waste away in this place we all once called home?"


He took a few steps towards her, but stopped short, eyeing her. "No, this is not where you belong, young fledgling. Your feathers are still vibrant, your soul still alight with flames, and your will still intact. Though..." he looked her over once more. "I sense a fragility, much like freshly fired earth made into shape and form, you are newly recreated, not in body, but in heart."

Several moments would pass by with no answer except the sound of the wind and ash whirling across the ground.


"A phoenix, hm?" a voice rang out from behind her. A man stood near the middle of the plaza. He looked to be a Perfect, dress in the robes of a Consul, but half his body was consumed by an amorphous black and purple, smokey energy. From what was showing of the half of his face not obscured, he bore a striking resemblance to one of the statues... The one of the Prefect Consul, Iohn.


"It has been eons passed since ive been in the presence of one." he said.

With each item being placed upon the head of its respective statue, beams of light once more traced the ground from the base to the center plaque, revealing more writing under the main inscription.

And blood-black nothingness began to spin. 
A system of cells interlinked, within cells interlinked, within cells interlinked, 
Within one stem. And dreadfully distinct, 
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

At the Gate, a once blank slate of metal was alight with an inscription.

A Guardian once asked for a toll and a tax,
to pass through a gate, and reveal my fate.
Calm and composed, a question was posed.
"When death does near, a black circle did appear.
What was it you saw, when you entered death's claws?"
