Sephira showed Vri the book and he nodded, thoughtfully. "I know her. She is Eternal" Vri said, solemnly. "I have no Domain over her ending. It is ... peculiar.". He didn't seem perturbed by it so much as just slightly annoyed at the blind girl. The Immortal nodded his head at Kura's assertion that they had best hope this was about his children. "I believe it is. I believe I know it is. But, I am a father and of all the Domains, all of them." He looked at the two women and his lips lifted in a slight smile as his eyes burned. "Love is the strongest."
Kura's assessment of relative power met with a nod from him, but little more. However, when she told him that she hoped he understood his responsibilities to the mortals present, all the air seemed to fall from the room which was immediately cold - cold like death. His pale face was unmoving and he looked at her with an apparently neutral expression. "Do not presume to speak to me of responsibility, Kura, daughter of Karem. You have no idea, like any child who believes they are all grown up" Gesturing to the Cathedral he breathed in, then exhaled and as he did the room warmed up a little. "Remember who you speak to. The Immortal of Love, who did not bring back his own beloved. Life, all life, is choices. There is no takeback, nor will I belittle their sacrifice by negating it. They chose. I chose. We live with the consequences of those choices. Do not speak thus again." He gestured to the remains of Ornery. "You still have much to learn, child of our youngest. About consequences of actions. Listen, observe and learn."
It seemed quite likely in that moment that Ornery wasn't getting resurrected any time soon.
And then, Kura asked the book what the purpose of the Cathedral was. Drawn in a three second timespan was the face of every mortal who slept on Idalos, each one individually and held in place, protected, kept safe by the Cathedral. Each of them, held safe and able to awaken because of the structure of the Cathedral. And then, there were the words.
And as Kura - and Sephira should she glance - read that, Dosan reappeared in the room. Vri turned and dark eyes fell upon him.
