On Rabbits

“The rabbit?  Strange little fellow, that Ren.  A gift from the Craeylu, in defiance of the Primal’s Ban.  Each God found his or her own way to circumvent the Ban; the rabbits were his.  Remember how Ren came to Kandol?  What! You don’t?  I’m sorry Jerilyn, I didn’t realize that it had gotten so bad for you.  Now, where was I?  Oh, yes.  After the Battle of Unending Night, the three Craeylu appeared in the Grove.  By the Spires, what an unlikely trio that was!  I would have never thought that my grandfather would come with them, but they must have made a peace, of sorts.  The Gods bequeathed gifts; to Kandol they gave Ren, the third of the three rabbits and no, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that there are three rabbits, nor that all three belonged to the House of Nammoran.  Kandol had one, as did his grandfather and his brother.  If you’re still uncertain which Craeylu was responsible, consider his brother’s hawk.  That should put your doubts to rest.”  The Wizard of the Blue Lagoon 

On God-Emperors

“Darmyn the Righteous was a throwback to the golden age of Sangrithar, when the God-Emperors ruled free of the curse.  The son of Tormyn Blackheart and grandson of the Dreamer, Darmyn fought against the madness lapping him like a pup starved for affection every day of his glorious reign.  His legions defended the weak, his coffers fed the poor, his temples celebrated every god and through his good works, he cleansed Sangrithar’s honor of his father’s stains.  The circumstances of his death were sudden and never made public, though most believe he fell at the hand of his son, Tardyn the Slayer.”    Jerilyn of Colcester
