We are formless clay, though we appear as men. When our training ends, we are gods, though we appear as men. For Essanti, love is a wound, and she’s all that can heal it.Rook (Darklaw)
ROOK is a spiritual warrior, avowed to protect the emissary from all threats, including the emissary’s own madness. He came to serve her when they were both yet children. In the bonding ceremony, Avestine took his hands, and he became an Essanti of Justice:
Without the means of worldly power, only faith remains, and great is the faith of the Essanti. To the Emissary the Essanti offers his hands so that his power will be made vulnerable by pain, dependent by castigation. By his deformity will the Essanti’s shame be known. By his deformity will his power be feared. He is an instrument of the gods. He is no longer a man. He is Essanti. Strength a means. Life a debt. Future a god.
