Vae, deeply distraught over Tally-Was loss feels empty. Though the world was saved, he has lost a dear close friend. The Temple of Saerenrae offered little comfort. No one seemed to know what became of his companion. However on the evening of the end of the first fortnight since Praemal was saved, Sarenrae appeared before Vae in his room during his mediation.
“Why do you worry so? Your friend helped save all of you.” she said in a luminous voice.
“She isn’t here. Why was it fair for her to just die. I couldn’t bring her back. None of your priests seemed to be able to. Why?”
“She is here…” Saerenrae then pointed to a brilliantly lit woman that seemed to come out of pearlescent light.
“She has been made Goddess of Purity and Determination within my realm”
“I am alright, my friend Vae. Now I can help all those that I could not help before. My Goddess has entrusted me to fulfill a gap in her responsibility and she has asked me to ask you to help.”
“What could I do? I am mortal, you are a god. I couldn’t save you.” Vae replied stiffly.
“I was saved, Vae. And so will you. You are now my Herald Bow of Tally-Wa, and you will help those that cannot help themselves with your compassion and might, and some divine help from me. Will you accept?”
“You are doing this of your own free will?” Vae asked solomly
“I am, I need you in this endeavor. I need you to lead others I may call upon.”
“Then I accept, if I may be so bold I have a small condition.”
“What is that, my friend?”
“That you pray with me every night and for those that I must purge of evil.”
Tally-Wa smiled., “Of course. Thank you.”
Saerenrae stepped back to the fore and looked at Tally-Wa and then Vae with a smirk. “We have much to do, young Vae. As will you. Take this time rejoice in the Evil that was purged from this world, you will know when to begin your calling.”
Altair’s plans never were set in stone. For a time he would stay in Ptolus, but life never kept him in one place. Sooner or later he would depart for greater things – perhaps forge his own kingdom. But that, is another story…
